Emily married James Cox (1837 1864) in Port Huron, Michigan in 1848. Together they had Alonzo (1846), James (1848), George (1850), Charles (1852), Joseph (1854), Francis (1858), and Frederick (1863). Her husband, James, died a year after their last child was born leaving Emily with seven boys to raise.

About two years later, at age 36, Emily married John Caughell, also from Port Huron. A book written by Bob Knight states this marriage produced two more children.

The following comes from her death announcement:

FROM PORT HURON DAILY TIMES, JUNE 5, 1881:
"Caughell, at the residence of James Cox in this city, Emily J. Caughell, aged 51.
Deceased was a sister of Wm. Whiting and was a hard working industrious woman.
Funeral tomorrow afternoon at 2 o`clock from Grace Church. Friends of the family are invited to attend."
