Dave Huffman's Note: Emma L. (McClure) Bonifield's Findagrave site states she was born in Darke County, Ohio and that her death date was 08 Mar 1944.
Note: There is family discussions on whether her family name was McCluer or McClure. Her parent's headstone is engraved McCluer. I believe the correct spelling is McClure, and that the headstone was incorrectly engraved.
