Since you believe that the Woods family was from Floyd Co and I see only two Cora Charles' who are of KY. The one from Floyd Co seems more likely:

1930 census: Floyd Co KY
26-220" Oscar Charles, head, 47, married at age 22, KY, KY, KY, coal miner
Malissia, wife, 47, married at age 14

WWI draft card:

death certs: KY:

Malissa Charles, spouse Oscar Charles, born June 17, 1883, lawrence Co KY, parents Charlie Travis and Millie Thompson, both born in Lawrence Co KY, died Aug 3, 1941, Emma, Floyd Co KY.

I did find one birth record: M. L. Charles (female) - this must be Mary Lou - she was born Feb 20, 1904, lawrence Co KY, dau of Oscar Charles and Jennie Campbell.

1900 census: Dabbins, Lawrence Co KY:

98-99: George Travis, head, born Mar 1836, 64 KY, KY, VA, farmer
Lizzie, wife, born Jan 1837, 63, married 43 years, KY, VA, VA

Per the Lawrence Co GenWeb:
Oscar Charles married Malissa Adkins 1903.
Melissa Travis married Wyatt Adkins 1895.

This site discusses that Arlie, Effie and Wyatt were children of Malissa and Wyatt Adkins, even tho they are shown as Charles children.

This site appears to be about your Travis family:

Hoping all of this is of help to you, this is not my family. Trish Elliott-kashima, Lawrenceburg, TN
