    Haydentown September 13, 1901

    	Mr. Emme married Lavania Derry, daughter of Basil Derry, and is survived by 11 children.  Three
    other children have passed away.  
    	He was a machinist by trade and had worked for 23 years for A. Garrison company in Pittsburgh, being
    their foreman, although he made his home in Georges township with the exception of 5 years.
    	He was an industrious, intelligent citizen, and a staunch republican/
    	Funeral at 10 o'clock.  Interment at Haydentown/
    	Deceased was half brother to the late Daniel Emme, who was a Justice of the Peace in Springhill.  He
    is also survived by a sister Mrs. Rachael Moore of Clinton County, Iowa.
