I'd like to add to your info here... Bessie Emmons b. abt. 1892 daughter of John Emmons married Frederick Palmer Rice in Calhoun County, MI 29 March 1911 (Calhoun County Marriage Records book 6 page 95) They had 2 children : I.)Emmon Rice b. 24 February 1914 d. July 1994 Emmon m. June ? and had Edward, Frederick, a daughter and another child. June was living in a nursing home last year. Ed or Fred live in Florida.
II.)Margaret Rice b. 09 August 1913 Bessie and Frederick divorced Fred remarried and had my father Wilfred Rice. As far as I know Bessie stayed in the Battle Creek area and Emmon became prominent. I have photos of Emmon, but I never met he or Margaret. If you discover any further info on Emmon or Margaret, please let me know. I am very curious about them.
