According to the LDS site for TX death certificates:
Cordie Leigh Raney b Jul 14 1910 in AR, died Mar 11 1955 in Houston Harris Co TX. She is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Orange, Orange Co TX. Her father was Jim Anthony b AR and mother was Dollie Callahan b OK. Also stated is she is married.

Her mother Dolly is also listed with a death cert dated Mar 25, 1965. She died in Houston and is buried in Eminence Cem in Chambers Co.It also states she is widowed. James Henry Anthony died Feb 10 1926 in Little River Co. I do not find him in the cem bk. There is a baby Hearn b&d 1940 in Wilton Cem. and father of James, Jonathan in Hopewell Cem.

For some reason I can not view the actual certificates to see who the informants were.

She and Buck had a child in Orange Co 1945, Bennie Buck Jr. They also had one that died in Orange Co at age 7, Edward King Hearn.

1920 census Cordie's parents are in Wilton TWP Little River Co with 4 children. Cordie is the eldest, Josie b 1914, Jimmie 1915, Alice 1917.Dolly is listed as head of household in 1930 with 3 children, Jinnie 1914, Alsie 1918 & Edward 5.
Next door is Cordie and Buck Hearn.
