Dora D. Covey was born 26 Sep 1856 at Rushville, Schuyler, Illinois. There is very strong evidence that she was a carrier of a rare genetic disorder called X-Linked Juvenile Retina Schisis. I don't know which of her parents she got it from. She was their only child. This condition is degenerative and causes legal blindness in males before age 40. Because of its rarity, it is often mis-diagnosed. If you have ever heard of blindness or poor eyesight running in this family, please contact me. COVEY of Schuyler and Pike counties, Illinois.
