*******************************************

Emma Church Stewart was the last of the Church's living on the family land in Glasgow, KY. Her land was bought by her nephew, Larry Settle, after her death.(The Church family came to Barren Co., KY. in 1818.) The original family property encompassed land from Beaver Creek to Happy Valley Rd. and in between Highway 90 and Lexington Dr. where she owned land. Longhunter's Trail used to be named Church Road until 1963, and that is where the family cemetery is located. Her mother died young and she was the oldest daughter who raised her other siblings. She graduated from Lois-Glyn Beauty School in 1934 located in Bowling Green, KY. She was a beautician and had licenses in 5 states: KY., IL., CA., MI., & OH. She owned her own shops in Louisville, KY., Chicago, IL., Pontiac, MI., Waverly, OH. and Glasgow, KY. She also worked in shops in CA. and ID. She was appointed State Inspector of Cosmetology in KY. by Gov. Louie Nunn (Republican) for 4 years, and retained it for another 4 years under a Democratic Administration. She retired from the State of Kentucky on Jan. 1, 1977. She held her beautician license for 64 yrs., until her death. She was a Kentucky Colonel & member of KY. Heritage, Inc., Eastern Star Olive Chapter # 179 of Chicago, IL., Fraternal Order of Eagles Ladies Auxiliary Aeri #2379 in St. Matthews of Louisville, KY.; also a contributor to the Museum of the Barrens in Glasgow, KY. She died of multiple myeloma (bone cancer). She was the oral historian of her family for several years. I don't think she ever thought of herself as a genealogist, but if it wasn't for her keeping all the family records my research would have been much harder. It was amazing the dates she could tell you without having to search for it. She had a very sharp mind even as she aged. She was a highly respected & esteemed lady in her community with many influential political figures as her personal friends. Written by her daughter, Laura J. Stewart.
