Keller, Emma Talbot, Mrs. Emma Talbot Keller, widow of Capt. Josiah Keller of East Machias, who died recently at the age of 84 years, was a remarkable woman and part of her life was spent in a strange land. She belonged to a well known Maine family, being the daughter of Judge Coffin Talbot of East Machias. She married Capt. Josiah Keller in the early fifties. Immediately after her marriage she started with her husband on a sailing vessel for their distant home on Puget Sound. Capt. Keller being one of the early pioneers in that country. They arrived at their future home after a voyage of five months, during which his vessel did not once weigh anchor. She was one of the first white women to land there. Remaining there until the death of her husband, she then returned East, and with her two sisters made her home in Boston, where for many years she was prominent in literary circles. Of rare quality of mind and intellect, she was admired and beloved by all who knew her. She belonged to a family remarkable for literary talent and longevity. (Daily Kennebec Journal, Augusta, Maine, December 12, 1904).
