Emerson, Emma
Mrs. Emma Emerson (nee Bradbury)
Mrs. Emma Emerson, formerly Bradbury, returned to her old home in Middleport, from St. Joseph, Missouri, last Wednesday morning, in a very feeble state of health. She was accompanied by her husband and two small children, a babe having been left in care of friends at St. Joseph. She has been on a decline several months with a complication of difficulties, such as partial paralysis, consumption and dropsy, and was relieved of her suffering by the kind hand of death about four o'clock, Sunday morning last, at the residence of Mrs. McQuigg, her foster mother.--Pomeroy Telegraph.
