"Aitch, Emeline: Obituary for Emeline Aitch: The subject of this sketch was born in the Indian Prairie neighborhood about 87 years ago and died at her home in Union, December 22, 1920 after an illness of several months. The funeral was held on Christmas Day at 2 o'clock in the afternoon from the St. James A.M.E. church of Union and was conducted by Rev. W. Chester. Deceased is survived by one son, Herman Aitch; five grandchildren, other relatives and many friends. The grandchildren are S. M. and C. G. Bryant of Wellston and Ethel, Alma and Uncas Aitch of Union. Aunt Emeline, as she was called by those who knew her, was born in slavery and was, at times, the property of the Billups and the Goodes, people of this county and this neighborhood. It may be truly said of her that she was a good Christian woman. She was always ready to help those who were in need of her service and died respected by all who knew her and the circle of her acquaintance extended to many parts of Franklin County. Most people in Union knew her well for many years. Peace to her ashes. Source: December 31, 1920 The Republican Tribune." [from the personal research of Sue Cooley]
