Obituary for Henry EMES in "Times Republican", Marshalltown, Iowa; Wednesday, Feb 13, 1901 page 7:
Former Resident of Marshall County Passes Away near Lamar, Mo. A telegram received in the city Tuesday afternoon from Lamar, Mo., announced the death on Tuesday morning of Henry Emes, father of Elias B. Emes, of this city, and for many years a resident of Iowa township and Albion. Mr. Emes' death occurred at the home of his son, Henry Emes, Jr., nine miles southwest of Lamar. Mr. E.B. Emes was present at his father's bedside when the end came, having left Marshalltown Monday evening in response to a telegram informing him of his father's dangerous condition.
The senior Emes was 81 years of age and had been ill only a short time, having suffered at first an attack of the grippe, with which pneumonia became complicated. Henry Emes resided in Marshall county many years and until recent years conducted a farm northeast of Albion. He also lived in Albion after he got too old to take an active part in the work about his farm, and about five years ago, left Marshall county for Lamar, Mo., to make his future home with his son. He spent the greater portion of last summer in this city with his other son. The deceased has a daughter residing in Kansas City. The remains of Mr. Emes will be interred in Albion cemetery and will pass thru this city Thursday morning in all probability on the Central. The funeral will be conducted in Albion Thursday afternoon.
