April A-Z Challenge – P is for PEARCE
P is for PEARCE, EMILY LOUISA, born June 23, 1857 at Yan Yean, Victoria Australia. I’ve been told she was known as Louie. She was my Great great Grandmother, and I think my grandmother Emily was probably named after her, as she is the only Emily in the family.
Family folklore says she was a bit of a feisty character, with many stories showing this. But unfortunately these stories are not mine to tell.
Emily had a large family and passed away in June 1950 at Kew, Victoria and is buried in Seymour. She was age 92 years at the time of her death.
