Grandma Brennan is a daughter of Lemuel Jackson Emery (1826-1903) and Mary Ann (Fondersmith) Emery (1839-1923) both of whom are buried in Weldon Cemetery also.

She married Matthew Francis Brennan (1848-1916) on 12 Oct 1879 in Watseka, Illinois.

Their children are:
1. William Elmer Brennan (1880-1956)
2. Lura May Brennan (1892-1955)
3. Golda Victoria Brennan (1883-1965)

7. Irma Cerita Brennan (1903-1984)

We used to visit Great Grandma Brennan often in her home in Lane, Illinois. We really enjoyed visiting her often. She would teach me to play checkers and worked with me until I could beat her son, my grandpa Willie Brennan, and was tickled when I could beat him once in a while. MaxT
