1st wife of
Cora Rohne was the third of nine surviving children of Evan Paulsen Rohne and Marianne Oliana Egeberg.
Evan and Marianne were Norweigian immigrants to Texas in 1871. They came to this region as indenture laborers and had to work for seven years before paying off the debt. The Norweigian community was formed in the central Texas area around Meridian and Cranfils Gap through a land grant to the King of Norway. The land was settled by the efforts of Cleeg Peerson who was instrumental in settling Minnesota with Scandanavians.
Cora Rohne was educated at home. Her parents would hire a teacher who lived on their farm. The Rohne children and a few other families helped to pay the teacher besides the room and board.
Cora's family gave her and her new husband 500 acres
land on their wedding. This dowery was very important to sustaining
in hard times. She bore six children but the seventh pregnancy ended
her tragic death at age thirty-six.
