Emma was born in a little two room log cabin, weighing only three pounds and was yellow from birth with jaundice. The milk she lived on was brought every few days from her grandparents home by a youn boy, mule pack, and then had to be thawed.
When it was around the time for Emma to be born, her father Andrew Jackson Liddil tried to stay near but it was not safe for him, a confederate soldier, to be in the vicinity just then. The Union soldiers were in control of that area. He did get home and the morning following Emma's birth, shots were heard while the family was eating breakfest. Hurridly leaving, carrying his boots so as to make less noise in the underbrush he went up the hill keeping the house between himself and the approaching soldiers. Shots continued to be fired all day. Not until three days later did the distracted mother of Emma (Martha) know that her babies father (Andrew) was safe.
Emma married John Wesley Wolverton about 1884 in Unknown. (John Wesley Wolverton was born in 1862 in Kansas, died on 15 Feb 1932 in Lawtom Comanchee Oklahoma and was buried Highland Cemetery in Lawton Comache Okloma, Find A Grave #76689720.)
