My Ancestors: Emma Holl

Emma Holl is my great grandmother. She was born October 22, 1891 in La Crosse, Wisconsin and she died March 8, 1989 in Sparta, Wisconsin. Emma was married to William Gibson and they had 5 children.

What I know:

  • Emma spent her entire life in Wisconsin.
  • Prior to her husband’s death, she and her daughters were featured quite often in the “Personals” section in the Wisconin Rapids newspaper

What I don’t know:

  • I don’t have much information about what her life was like after her husband passed. I know that she never remarried and she lived an additional 49 years. It looked like after her husband died, Emma worked at domestic jobs — like dishwasher.
  • I’ve been trying to find a copy of her marriage record to William, but haven’t been able to find one yet.
