Vine, Emma E. (26 APR 1852 - 10 OCT 1944)

Mrs. Emma Vine, nee Emma E. Marvin, was born in the State of New York on April 26, 1852.

Later she moved with her parents to Greenwood, (Clark Co.), Wis., and on Oct. 19, 1868 was married to Thos. R. Vine of Greenwood, a Civil War Veteran.

Mr. and Mrs. Vine were old timers around Greenwood, and very well known in this vicinity, as they used to reside on what is now the Leonard Johnson farm, about two and one-half miles northeast of Greenwood, for many years.

Five children were born to this union, namely: Edward C. of Birchwood, Wis.; Ernest R. and Alice, now Mrs. Bert Monroe, both of Elk River, Idaho; and Jerry T. and Percy L. of Vida, Montana, all of whom survive.

The Vines continued to reside at Greenwood, Wis. until 1910, when they moved to Vida, Montana and took up a homestead. After proving up on their land, they with their son Ernest and family later moved to Elk River, Idaho, where "Grandma" as she was familiarly known, lived to the ripe age of ninety two years, and was tenderly cared for at the home of her son, where she passed away on Oct. 10, 1944.

She was laid to rest in Moscow, Idaho, and all of her children were present at the funeral, excepting the eldest son, who lives in Wisconsin.
