Biography* From Barbara Kuhn Winslett, a granddaughter of Cordelia Koone, Jan 2000:
     My grandmother, Cordelia Ann Culpepper Koone is buried at Bethany Baptist Church in Pine Mountain, Ga. She married James Franklin Koone on Dec. 24, 1885 in Harris County, Ga. They were the parents of my father Alvis Lloyd Koone (Kuhn).
     I have a copy of a marriage license of my father's first marriage. It has him listed as Alvis Lloyd Koone of Columbus, Ga married to Beatrice Thomas. I do not have a record of my father's marriage to Sybil Aleene Dison, my mother. Sometime after his marriage with Beatrice and the time he married my mother he changed the spelling of his name from Koone to Kuhn.
     James Franklin Koone was born in 1865 and died on Apr. 10, 1937. His father was Marion Koone was born in 1837 in South Carolina and died on Apr. 05, 1910. Marion's father was George William Koon Jr. was born in Mar. 17, 1802 and died on July 11, 1881. George married Nancy Abney. Nancy was born in Jun. 18, 1802 and died on Aug. 21, 1881.

The following is from Deborah Slaton, daughter of Barbara Lockard, Jan 2005:
     These are the notes I found in Mom's files so far about Cordelia:
          Cordelia's children's names are:
               Minnie Koon - Mrs. Sykes
               Maybelle Koon - Mrs. Sam Satterwhite
               Clara Koon - lived in LaGrange, Georgia
               Ernest Koon
               Clinton Koon
               Alvis Lloyd Koon
     "Aunt Delia" was what the Thompson girls called her. Molly Ledbetter and daughter, Dora, lived with sister "Delia" after the death of Molly's husband. One son died in Columbus, but I don't know which one. Cordelia Culpepper Koone and her family are buried in the new section of Bethany Baptist Cemetery, Pine Mountain, Harris County, Georgia. Ernest Koone, her son, told me he had new headstones erected for them.
     Ernest Koon ran a nursery (plants) in Harris County. He was living in 1979, and I talked to him about the Culpeppers. He had everything written down, and there was no more than I knew. I have always wished I had asked him about the other families (Hammack - Ledbetter - DeLoach, etc.)

Samantha Jane Koone White, the youngest daughter of Ernest's son Henry and his former wife Carol, wrote in Jun 2006, that she is also interested in this line.5,10,12
