Joseph L. Wallace died at 104

Can anyone tell me anything about Joseph and his wife Cora? They are buried at Highland cemetery in Sparta. Joseph was b 1887 TN and died 1992 AZ. His wife Cora was b 1881 WV and died 1974 in AZ.

I'm seeking Cora's maiden name. Some list her as Cora Rhinehart. Cora Rinehart [note sp] lived with her family in Mineral Co., WV in 1910 and with her father and brother in Wichita, KS in 1915. She is on the KS 1915 census and listed in Wichita city directories through 1913-1915.

Her father died back in Mineral Co. in 1917. I find no record of Cora after 1915. Her brother married, lived and died in Wichita. Cora may have returned to WV to care for her father until he died, but I find no record of that.

I do not find either Cora or Joseph on the 1920 census. This is what I have found:

I'm trying to determine if my Cora Jane Rinehart b 1881 in Mineral Co., WV was the wife of Joseph Laban Wallace of White Co., TN. I never found Joseph Wallace living in WV or in KS where Cora lived, but not finding either in 1920 leaves a big hole.

The Cora Jane Rinehart that is of interest to me was the daughter of Enoch Chandler and Matilda "Tillie Belle" Rees/e Rinehart.

Would there be a burial record in White Co. that gives her family information? an obituary for her there? A volunteer looked for an obit in AZ for both of them and found nothing.

I'd appreciate any help anyone has to offer me!
