Name: Emaline B. SLATER
Name: Emaline B. MO0RE aka
Documentation for Emily's parents has not been found. Reminiscent History Of The Ozark Region, pub. Goodspeed Brothers, Chicago 1894 says: "In 1858 he [Henry C. AMBROSE] came to Daviess County, Missouri, and the following year was married in Ray County, to Miss Emily Slater, a native of Ray County, and the daughter of Thomas and Catherine (Moore) SLATER."
A Thomas SLATER appears on the 1850 Census in Ray County, but his household does not contain Catherine or a daughter named Emily. The census also shows he was born in Ohio. On the 1880 and 1900 census, Emily indicates both her parents were born in Tennessee.
Descendants of Henry and Emily relate family stories that Emily spent time on an Indian Reservation. If true, that may explain why we have been unable to find her on the 1850 Census.
Following her husband's death, Emaline applied for a Widow's Pension in December 1907. She claimed to be 63 years old, and to have been the only wife of Henry. She owned four acres of land, mostly in cultivation, a three room house, farm buildings, two filly colts, one cow, one calf, one yearling calf, and her household goods. She valued her house and land at $250, and the stock at $160. She also had a savings in the bank of $575, which earned her 4% interest. Her yearly income was $50 and no person was bound for her support. Emaline was granted a pension of $12 per month.
