I can help you with Emma Negley,daughter of William Clark Negley:she was my grandmother.She was in fact married twice.She first married William Felton,I believe around 1905. She is thus the "mrs william felton of west virginia"mentioned in James Oakley's note as a child of William Clark Negley,although the reference to West Virginia is unknown to me --William Felton's parents lived in Old Bridge NJ (his father was Henry Felton).According to family legend,Emma Negley's family objected to William Felton;consequently they eloped.I believe William Felton was in the advertising business.They lived in Chicago where my father,William Negley Felton,was born in 1913.In 1919 they moved to New York,where my father went to grade school.
What happened to William Felton (senior)is quite obscure -- one version is that he was killed in a street car accident,another is that he and Emma were divorced. At any rate,Emma Negley Felton eventually returned to Butler Pa with her son.About 1930 she married Abel Fisher,a local business man -- I believe he owned a dry cleaning plant.Abel Fisher had three children from a previous marriage.They all lived in a big house on Second Street in Butler.During the depression he sold (or lost) the business, and Abel and Emma moved to Jamestown,New York --Abel Fisher had freinds and family there.Abel and Emma Fisher spent most of the rest of their lives in Jamestown;he worked for a furniture company there.Emma Fisher, nee EmmaNegley,died in 1965.
I have many pleasant memories of my Grandmother and step-Grandfather.I sometimes spent summer vacations with them in Jamestown,and they occasionally rented a cabin on Lake Chataquaua.She had been seriously injured in an auto crash in the 1930s,and was partially disabled -- she always walked with a limp,and she tired very easily.But she was a forminable woman,with old fashioned "finishing school" manners.
I have a couple photos of William Clark Negley and one of John H. Negley from a family photo album.I also have William Clark Negley'sCertificate from the U.S. Naval Acadamy,dated June 4 1869 -- it's an impressive document,in the florid style of the time,signed by a dozen professors and administrators.
