Ethel G., b. abt 1912 in MD
Katherine, b. abt 1913 in MD

Her second husband was John H. Rhoy. They had at least two daughters; Muriel and Hazel.

Emma is a widow in 1920 and has several boarders in her home as well has her two daughters, Ethel & Catherine. John H. Rhoy is one of the boarders. They must have married shortly after the 1920 census was taken because by the 1930 census they are married and have two daughters, Muriel age 9 and Hazel age 7.
