Emmar Sargent Pollard Olenbaugh Update

Time doesn't allow for a lengthy discussion of new information on Emmar Olenbaugh and her last husband John Olenbaugh. However, a few things have been located:

  • Emmar died in a veteran's home in Marshall County, Iowa in 1920. She is buried on the grounds.
  • Emmar received a pension for John's service. 
  • Emmar and John were married in Iowa in 1896.
  • John died in a veteran's home in Leavenworth, Kansas, in 1902. He is buried on the grounds. 
Readers may recall that our last known residence for Emmar was with her son in Oklahoma in 1900. She would still have been married at that time and John had not yet been admitted to the home in Leavenworth, Kansas.

We'll have an update in a future issue of Casefile Clues. Given Emmar's several marriages her apparent application after John's death may prove to be especially interesting. We'll also see what records we can get from the places where they died.
