Seems unlikely she would have changed her name but one never knows. Especially as I have just spotted something else.
According to a previous posting, Clarence and Cornelia married in Connecticut 27 November 1929.  According to the 1930 census, they had another daughter, Cynthia A. born New York aged 1 - who I assume is the Cynthia A Sparks in the NY Births Index born 27 November 1928!
That marriage is not on Ancestry, but if correct it would appear both their daughters were born out of wedlock.
Also Cornelia's family had Connecticut connections, her father buried New Haven in 1923, so also possible she was in that state for a time after her father's death.

There are no Connecticut marriages from that time frame on Ancestry.  The Connecticut marriage index is here - http://www.ctatatelibrarydata.org/marriage-records/
