The Search for Emma Continues

There were some really good comments on the Emma Sargent (born about 1840 in Canada) article that was Volume 2, Issue 7. Readers know Emma lived most of her life in the United States, including:
  • Winnebago County, Illinois
  • Davis County, Iowa
  • Union County, Iowa
  • Lancaster County, Nebraska
  • Lawrence County, Missouri
  • Woodward County, Oklahoma
We still have several gaps in Emma's life so there could be additional areas of residence, but it's not likely she strayed too far from this area. There was a plan in issue 7 for continued research on Emma, considering what is known and what the real purpose of the research is. Briefly our immediate focus is on:
  • Emma's marriages
  • Emma's divorces
  • the 1870 and 1900 census
We'll post updates about Emma in future issues of Casefile Clues as research warrants and if there are lessons for genealogists in general in the research. Subscribe now and get in on the discovery. We'll post brief summaries on the blog as time allows.

I've made contact with a researcher whose husband is a great-grandson of Emma, which is really exciting.
