Bennie inherited farm land in Bladen County from his father, Alexander. After the untimely death of Bennie on March 20, 1910, Cora, being unable to maintain the farm and taxes associated with it, had to give it up.  She and her 9 children moved to Fayetteville, NC, where the children were raised.  Cora died August 3, 1941.  She is buried in Cross Creek Cemetery, Fayetteville, NC, and Bennie is buried at Bethlehem United Methodist Church Cemetery, Bladen County, NC.
