Emily Caroline DeRussy was married Dec on 18, 1851 at Fort Monroe, Virginia, to Henry Jackson Hunt, Capt. 2d Artillery.
Emily died too young, yet she left a son who was the forebear of generations to come.
See Lieut. Henry Jackson Hunt b. May 24, 1855.
[Hunt was] "called from Washington in mid-May 1857 by the most painful news of his adulthood: his wife was dead. On the twelfth Emily had succumbed at Fort Monroe to the long-range effects of those childbirth complications that had plagued her for two years.
He had foreseen this end. Still he was unprepared to accept the anguished realization that her loss had cast him and his motherless children adrift. Painfully he made his way south to the place Emily [was put] to rest in the De Russy family plot at St. John's Episcopal Church in Hampton, Virginia..."
