Emma married Big Ed Pulaski in 1900 in Wallace, Shoshone County, Idaho. According to their marriage record, her last name at that time was Dickinson, indicating she likely had been previously married. She and Big Ed lived just a few miles up the Burke Canyon, near Wallace in Shoshone County, Idaho during early marriage years. They had a daughter together named Elsia C. Pulaski, aka "Elsie." During the time of the fire, they lived in Wallace. Emma wrote a seven page essay "My Experience as a Forest Ranger Wife" after Ed's death. Her husband is famous for two things in the realm of fighting wild fires: Developing the Pulaski tool used still today by the USDA Forest Service; Saving 40 lives in the Great 1910 Fire, by leading his fire fighting crew into an abandoned mine up Moon Pass Road. Daughter, Elsia, married on 18 Dec 1920 in Wallace to John Feroglia.
