Emma Conn Crow was born on 3 April 1839 in St Louis, Missouri, to philanthropist Wayman Crow and his wife, Isabella Buck Conn.

As a nineteen-year-old fledgling actress, Emma began an affair with much older Charlotte Cushman, a famous stage actress. With her lover's encouragement, she married Edwin Charles "Ned" Cushman, Charlotte's nephew and adopted son, on 3 April 1861 in St Louis.

Ned and Emma had five sons: Wayman, Allerton Seward, Edwin Charles "Carlino" Jr, Victor Nilsson, and Guy Cushman.

The family lived in Rome where Ned worked at the US Consolate in Italy. They moved back to St Louis before the 1870 US Census and by 1880, they were living in Newport, Rhode Island.

Late in life, Emma penned, "Insight; A Record of Psychic Experiences: A Series of Questions and Answers Dealing with the World of Facts, the World of Ideals and the World of Real."

Emma Crow Cushman died of pneumonia, 15 September 1920, aged 81, in Bar Harbor, Maine, and was buried with her husband at Mt Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
