Emma Smurl
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1867
Death: Jul. 23, 1872

Both Emma and Jane Smurl perished when the company home they were living in collapsed into a sink hole on 23 July 1872. At that time, mine shafts were commonly tunneled dangerously close to the surface. Their father, Samuel took The Delaware and Hudson Canal Company to court. The case was heard in April of 1876 and a verdict of "non-culpable" was returned.
