Obituary from the Watertown Daily Times Afternoon Edition, dated Wednesday, February 27, 1918:


Mrs. Emily James, widow of Harvey James, died early this morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Eugene B. Cornwell, 1874 Washington Street, following a few months' illness, aged 84 years.

Mrs. James was born in Oswego county, Nov. 12, 1832 [sic], the daughter of the late Isaac and Nancy Christmas. She lived in that county the greater part of her life. For the past three years, up to four months ago, she had resided at Mannsville. She came ot this city four months ago to live with her daughter.

Besides her daughter, Mrs. E.B. Cornwall, at whose home she died, she is survived by two brothers, Isaac Christman of Sandy Creek, and John Christman of Holyoke [illegible], 13 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

Prayers will be held from the residence of Mrs. Cornwell Thursday evening at 6. Rev W.H. Skee's officiating. The remains will be taken to Sandy Creek Friday morning. Interment will be made in the Sandy Creek cemetery.

Note: Emily's late 1833 birthdate was likely misunderstood by the monument's erector, leading to the assumption of 1834 as the correct date.
