  • Notes 
    • Cause of death: diabetes and cancer

      Emmer was born in her parent's home in Payson, Utah. While she was still a child, her family moved to Burrville, Utah.

      She married James Henry Davis on 3 Dec 1894. Their marriage was sealed in a Mormon Temple about a year later. The couple lived in Salem, Utah where they had five children. One died shortly after birth. Later, they had two other boys who were still-born.

      In 1907, they moved to Rigby, Idaho where they lived the rest of their lives except for four years when they lived in Alberta, Canada.

      Em, as she was known, was a beautiful, dark haired lady, who lived a busy and useful life. She was always very active in the Mormon Church, and was a kind and loving wife and mother. She cared for all around her and would give of herself to anyone in need.

      Her husband ran the dray in Rigby. He drove a delivery truck with horses and used to sell ice in the summer and deliver groceries in Rigby.

      Em died in 1928 of diabetes and cancer. Henry was grief stricken. He died in a traffic accident three months later.
