Elisha Embree #7779398
K,
I found this bio on Elisha Embree, my 4th great grandfather. Was wondering if you could add it to his bio. I will paste below. The entry is complete with footnote.
Thank You.
Sincerely,
Steve Fankhouser
Lyons, Co.

Elisha Embree was a native of Lincoln County, Kentucky, born September 28, 1801. He was the son of Joshua and Elizabeth Embree. Joshua Embree was a native of Kentucky, and his wife, whose maiden name was Edmonson, was a native of Virginia. Joshua Embree and family came to Gibson County in the month of November, 1811; and settled on a tract of land about two and a half miles southwest of the present site of Princeton. It was a densely timbered district in which the settlement was made, and here was erected a cabin for the shelter of the family, and a small farm was cleared. Joshua Embree was a member of the Baptist church and his wife of the Christian church. He lived only about two years after coming here. His widow subsequently married a Mr. Spencer, and lived in the county until her death, which took place June 24, 1829. On the death of his father, Elisha Embree was obliged to labor hard toward the support of himself and family. His early educational advantages were limited. What education he did gain was such as the district schools of that early period afforded. He read law with Judge Samuel Hall, and began practicing in Princeton in 1826. He soon arose to prominence and for many years was a leader in public life. He was eminently successful as a lawyer; was an able and eloquent advocate; a wise and practical counselor, and universally respected. In 1833, he was a member of the State Senate, and in 1835 was elected judge of the Circuit Court. He served ten years in this judicial position. In 1847 he was elected to Congress from the First Congressional District, defeating the Hon. Robert Dale Owen, and being the first Whig ever elected in this district.

On the 15th day of March, 1827, he was married to Eleanor Robb, the daughter of Major David Robb, the pioneer of the Robb family in Gibson County. Unto the marriage six children were born, viz: Maria Louisa, James T., Ophelia (died in infancy), Ophelia Elizabeth (died in infancy), David F. and Milton P.

When the civil war came on Elisha Embree was advanced in old age. He was a strong Union man and aided and encouraged the enlistment of troops, and his three sons entered the army.

Thank you for finally adding this marvelous opera singer to the site. I am in the process of writing her biography, and, while all reference books give her birth year as 1871 or 1872, extant birth records at the Evangelical Church of Saint Mary, Anklam, Germany, state that she was born June 15, 1870. She was a naturalized American citizen at the time she was killed in an automobile accident in Berlin on February 22, 1932.

According to the "Report Of The Death Of An American Citizen" drawn by the American Consular Service in Berlin on March 22, 1932, she was cremated at the Berlin-Wilmersdorf Crematorium on February 27, 1932, with the ashes given to her husband, Hans Tauscher. What he did with the remains I do not know.

RE: Phillips in Cobourg
Thanks for the lead to the Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid. I've just found a number of bits of information to add to my database. Should you come across pictures of the markers for any of those Phillips daughters, I would appreciate your adding them to findagrave.

Thank you for her headstone photo! Did you happen to notice if her husband, John Houston, was buried next to her? I have no dates for him...

Phillips in Cobourg
Any chance that daughters of Joseph Phillips and Mary Stanton are also in the Cobourg Union Cemetery. They are Harriet Minerva Phillips (1813-1839), Mariah Hannah Phillips Stanton 1807-1902, Miranda Phillips Gillard 1809-1901, and Louisa Almira Phillips McCarty 1816-1851.

Are you aware of any listing of the burials in that cemetery that I could check? I would love information on their burials and pictures if that is possible.

Thanks,
Julie Busse
