Description: The first time Cora Barrett’s little brother Carl brought neighbor boy James Hodges home to play she did not imagine in her wildest dreams that he would become the man she could not live without. But life works in funny ways, and in 1940, Cora married her brother’s childhood friend. On October 21, 1940, the young couple welcomed their first child into the world; one month later James began a year of active duty with the Texas National Guard, leaving his fledgling family behind in the Heights.
