Note: Emma's mother died when she was only three years old. She lived with family & friends until her father sent for her to come from Pa. to Milton, WV. She came here around 1880. An uncle took her to Wheeling on a sled, put her on a steamboat for Huntington, where she took the C & O Railroad to Milton. She said she stepped off the train onto wooden sidewalks and lots of mud. -Dewey
