    Married Between 1871 and 1875 
    • Emily’s brother, Ezekial, is living in the household of James C. & Elizabeth Cook in 1870, and Elizabeth is listed as the head of household rather than James. His Confederate pension states that he had suffered diphtheria and “wounded by being struck on the head with a ball.” If James was physically impaired, Ezekial may have been there to help the family with farming chores. Emily and her mother were living just a few farms from James & Elizabeth. No marriage record has been found for James and Emily or a divorce for him and Elizabeth. It is likely that they were never legally married. Emily’s widow’s pension of 1908 says they were married in Crenshaw County, Alabama in 1871, she did not remember the date. The 1927 application she lists about 10 January and no year. Elwood was born c. 1875 or 1876. The 1880 census only shows one child: Elbert, age 5, who is most likely Elwood.
