Laura Cora was raised on a farm and when she married Robert Tyndall Damero (her first cousin). They had a very large farm just outside of Huntsville, Randolph Co., MO. They had three ponds, (one for watering the livestock, one for makeing ice in the winter, and one which they had catfish so they could have fish) they had a barn, Ice house, and a smoke house besides the main house they lived in. They were considered welthy, not in money but in what they owned. They had a team of Clydesdale Horses and the equipment to harvest. They were well liked and respected in the comunity.
