Galva Emery - Part II

Earlier this year I had posted a small article about Galva Emery, the first daughter born to my great great great grandparents, Sarah (Dwire) and David W Emery.   Galva was also the first child born in the town of Galva, Henry County, Illinois.

Here is a more detailed article about Galva's birth from the February 1962 Galvaland Magazine*

*The article indicates Galva died September 13, 1865; she actually passed away at the age of 8 on September 23, 1963.

Here is a follow-up article that appeared in the Galvaland Magazine from the January/February 1980 edition that also mentioned Galva's brother, Frank who preceded her in death the previous year.   Frank's headstone is difficult to read so his date of death is unknown, however I have determined he was born in 1861 or 1862.
