Birth:  1901/2, MO

The only records in the censuses I can find that remotely match "Verdra" with a mother, "Cora," are for a Viola RUCKER (b. Mar 1894, KY), d/o William J. RUCKER (b. Jun 1873, KY) & Cora A. (b. Sep 1876), but the match is far from convincing.  Does anyone know what her name actually was and who her parents actually were?

Children born in Kissimmee, Osceola Co., FL:
1.  Frieda / Freda J. STROUP, b. Jul 1919
2.  Roy F. STROUP, Jr., b. 1921/2
