In September 29th, 1878 she was married to Wm. S. Apple. To this union three children were born, Chas. E., John Emmerson, and Mary Chloe.
The family resided on a farm in LaMotte township until the children became of school age, when they moved to Robinson in 1888 to obtain the benefit of better schools.
After completing the public school course, the family moved to Urbana, Champaign in 1901, to give the children the benefit of the State University and home surroundings.
