Emma Jenkins died in Guilford, Maine on August 24, 1932 at the age of 76. What I find sad about this obituary is what it doesn’t say: anything about her first husband, John Frank Templeton and their two sons, Hermon Orman (b. 1874) and Fred Frank (b. 1876).
Her first husband died in 1879, leaving her with two sons 5 and 3. From the Templeton side of this family we do not know much about what happened to Emma in the next 53 years. By 1880 Fred went to live with his aunt and uncle; Hermon with their aunt’s parents.
