General Notes: Wife - Emma Eva TOWLER
=================================================================================================

1900 Census says she had 8 children with 3 living [Ellen, Walter and Luther].

Thomas' birth certificate says he is her 11th child with four living. I have to assume that this
means there are four others besides him living [Ellen, Walter, Luther and Sanford]. Luther was
hit by a car and killed the next year.

She was probably born in 1866-7. This is the age given by her parents and by her when she is
left to her own devices.
