Let us 1st make sure we have the same Emma Toms. There is a I found a Emma A. Toms in the 1900 Missouri census B in Ohio abt 1853.
Mine is Emma R. Toms b 19 Apr 1858 in Jamesville WI. and D 07 Feb 1934 in Chicago, Cook, Illinois. This Emma was married on 12 Feb 1878 in St. Louis Mo. to Walter A. Kedge B 7/1874 D 06 Aug 1899 in Chicago,Il.They had 4 sons, William, Albert, James & Frank.
I also have a:
1. Decatur Toms B 05 Mar 1862 Hudson City, Hudson, NJ. the son of Decatur Toms of NY / NJ & Mary (?) Toms of NY 2. Decatur Toms of New York married to a Susan (Snorm) Toms who are noted as the parents of our Emma (Toms) Kedge on her death cert. 3. Decatur Toms of NY.husband of Susan (Fash) Toms of NY who's daughter Delia (Toms) Van Dusen was b 09 Oct 1862 on NJ. & d 02 Aug 1915 in Chicago Il.They seemingly also had a daughter Emma and a son William. lets see if we can connect the dots between these seemingly related parties.
