Abigail (Williams) Emery Daniels Kiefer - burial

My great great grandmother, Abigail (Williams) Emery Daniels Kiefer was born to Elizabeth (Ritchley) Basil Williams on February 8, 1869 in Iowa City, Johnson County, Iowa.

Abigail married Fred J Emery on July 3, 1887 in Washington, Iowa.   After having three children, Fred, Mabel and Frank, Abigail and Fred divorced sometime between October 31, 1891 and July 5, 1895.

Abigail then married Wilson Daniels in Chicago, Illinois on July 9, 1895.   Wilson passed away October 10, 1903 in Chicago.

Within a year or two following the death of Wilson, Abigail married her third husband, Louis Clifford Kiefer.

Abigail passed away in Chicago on April 23, 1935 and was buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Blue Island, Cook county, Illinois in Division 12C, lot 70.

Louis was born August 24, 1872 in Portsmouth, Ohio to Mary (Behrens) and Fred Kiefer.   Louis passed away in Chicago on October 29, 1930.

Louis' mother is also listed on the monument, born March 8, 1850.  Her death date was not completed on the monument.   Mary apparently had moved back to Portsmouth, Ohio sometime after the 1930 US Census and died on September 10, 1839.    Mary was buried at Greenlawn cemetery in Portsmouth, Scioto county, Ohio.
