Henry Emery and the Abraham Lincoln/Stephen Douglas debates Part II

A couple of weeks ago I posted about my great great great great grandfather Henry Emery and daughter Catherine who had attended the Lincoln/Douglas debate in Galesburg, Illinois.  

Here is an obituary for Henry's daughter Catherine, provided by one of many Emery cousins, Linda Larson. 

While the content is difficult to read, the headline is pretty clear. 

Catherine Emery was born February 14, 1849 in Canton, Illinois and died December 25, 1938.  

She was married to William Kelly on January 12, 1870 near Galva, Illinois.
