This doesn't answer the above, but I found CoraBelle's father's name (Wm Hartman, but no image to see if that's what's written) and birth location.

This gets interesting and then confusing: There is a pedigree on familysearch that indicates Charles F Smith, is the son of Charles F. Smith Sr. and Carylina Stiels. Unsourced data, needs research.
SEE: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:ST2N-LVH

In 1880, Charles F. Smith is living in OH with W W Ludwig and Caroline Ludwig, and several Ludwig children.
Source: "United States Census, 1870," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M62J-3QK : 17 October 2014), W W Ludwig, Ohio, United States; citing p. 19, family 137, NARA microfilm publication M593 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 552,717.
 
W W Ludwig                 M     31     Maryland
Caroline Ludwig         F     36     Pennsylvania
Henry H Ludwig         M     7     Ohio
Amelia Ludwig         F     3     Ohio
Charles F Smith         M     12     Pennsylvania
Lydia Ludwig         F     5     Ohio

Caroline Ludwig is listed as born York, PA April 1831/2 in 1900 Van Wert OH census

Caroline Ludwigs death cert. b. York, PA  April 5, 1831 - says parents are Thomas Styles/Styler and Catharine Strayer.
Image: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G9ZY-R69C?mode=g&i=665&cc=2128172
Source: "Ohio, County Death Records, 1840-2001," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F6CD-G83 : 13 December 2014), Caroline Ludwig, 04 Mar 1915; citing Death, Hoaglin Township, Van Wert, Ohio, United States, source ID item 7 cn 11, County courthouses, Ohio; FHL microfilm 1,952,877.

If you look at William Washington Ludwig b. 1837-39 in MD records, on some of them his wife is Caroline Stiles!
https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3A%22william%20Washington%22~%20%2Bsurname%3Aludwig~%20%2Bbirth_place%3Amd~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1836-1840~%20%2Bresidence_place%3Aoh~%20%2Bresidence_year%3A1870-1880~%20%2Bspouse_givenname%3Acaroline~%20%2Bspouse_surname%3Astiles~

 So maybe his mother is Caroline Styles/Stiles/Stiels and his father ___ Smith died be 1870.  Found several Charles Smiths died 1860-1869, no spouse named.  Couldn't find the marriage record for Caroline Stiles to a Smith or Caroline Smith to Wm. Ludwig.
