Sarah (Dwire) Emery - obituary

Here is the obituary* of my great great great grandmother, Sarah Emery.

Sarah was born to Lacey and Ellis Dwire in Fulton County, Illinois on June 3, 1837.   Sarah married David W Emery sometime in 1853 or 1854, probably near Galva, Henry county, Illinois.   Because counties were not required to record vital information until after 1916, I've been unable to locate their marriage license.

*From the March 14, 1928 edition of the Ottumwa Courier
