      (Source: Carlene Warner via misc e-mail communication with Ron Yates) She is listed in the 1870 U.S. Census as being born in Ohio, however, family records and marriage license list Emma's birthplace as Madison County, Iowa. 1870 US Census- Madison County, Madison, Iowa, Film M593, reel 407. Page 5, dwelling 34, family 34: Klingman, Henry, 45 , farmer, PA; Elizabeth, 43, at home, MD; Marshall, 18, farmer, OH; Mary, 15, at home, OH; Charles, 13, OH; Edwin, 8, OH; John, 3, OH; Emma, 2, OH; Smith, Jennie, 35, housekeeper, OH. Request for a death certificate from the State of Indiana produced no results. Records were checked from 1902 to 1908, based on family records listing her death date. Request from Crawford County, Illinois also proved futile. Family records state Emma Clingman died two days after the birth of her last child at age 36. The infant died at birth and is buried at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.

      (Source: Carlene Warner via misc e-mail communication with Ron Yates) I've continued to research and have found the actual location of Emma Clingman Laswell's burial site. She is buried close to David Sherman Laswell's parents in Pleasant Ridge (Tick Ridge) Cemetery near English, Crawford County, Indiana. Earlier records had erroneously had her buried at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Terre Haute, Indiana. Her grave stone is just a homemade cement one--barely legible, but definitely hers. Also near her grave is a simple marker for Emma's and Sherman's child, Muriel Laswell, as well as the infant who died two days before Emma. We visited there in September, 2002 and I took photos of all the Laswell grave stones. There are many, as well as Yates' stones. Here is a photo of David Morton Laswell and Mariah Catherine Curl Laswell's stone. David Sherman Laswell is buried at Grandview Cemetery in Terre Haute in the same plot with my grandparents, Alma Ruth Laswell Barbee and Alonzo Burnett Barbee.

The remains were buried Monday afternoon. The funeral services were held at the log Church and were largely attended. Mrs. Laswell leaves a husband and five children to mourn her departure.
