Emily Elizabeth Dunn Wright
Birth: Dec. 8, 1896
Greater London, England
Death: Dec. 26, 1963
Brooklyn
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA

This is the memorial for my Grandmother. I was named after my Nana :)

My grandmother arrived in this country from England August 21, 1904 at the age of 8 with her mother Susan, two brothers and two sisters. Her father George had traveled here alone the previous May. I found the entire family on the Ellis Island website - ellisisland.org

Emily married John Patrick Farley in Brooklyn, NY on June 19, 1917. They had 6 children. Shortly after John's death in 1933, she married Charles Wright and had one more child. I have no information about Charles.

I haven't yet located where the child born to Emily and her second husband, Charles Wright, is buried:

Grace Emily Wright Gamble - (Mother of Patrick)
B - 7 Mar 1935
D - 15 Nov 1993 (Died in Brooklyn, NY)

Grandson: Patrick Gamble
Nephew: Charles E. Edrehi
