Additional information on Laura Ann Fee Embree and her family Lincoln
County, WY website
In 1885 William H. Embree, who had been establishing telegraph stations for the
Union Pacific, came to Cokeville. He was a New Englander by birth and his wife
was the granddaughter of John Fee, the founder of Berea College, Kentucky. Mr.
Ernbree died in 1891, leaving the mother with six children. The son Howard H. is
a business man of Kemmerer. William D. worked his way through Yale University
and is now secretary of the Rockefeller Foundation Fund. From the headquarters
in New York he has traveled all over the world. One interesting experience in
which his brother Howard, also a Yale graduate, shared, was a trip through
Canada with Edison, in search of nickel mines. Another brother, Edwin, after
graduation, became assistant secretary of Yale University. A daughter named
Hallie went as a missionary to South America, and after eight years of service
there is head of the Spanish Mission at Los Angeles. Ida Embree, after teaching
for a time in Evanston, married G. N. Miles of the Beck-with & Lauder store, and
now lives in Denver. Nellie, after the death of her first husband, Charles
Rathbun of Fontenelle, married Noble Hillis, president of Todd Seminary of
Woodstock, Illinois, and devotes her time to the management of the boarding
school there. Mrs. William N. Embree lived ten years after the death of her
husband, long enough to see her children launched on successful careers in which
her self -sacrificing life was a power that can never be estimated.
