Emily is how her name is shown on her birth registration; it is shown as Emma on her marriage registration. The marriage registration page nowhere shows the township of registraiton. It does show that the registration was done in Norfolk County and, apparently, at this early date is a country registration rather than a township registration. The 1871 census shows Isaac, her father, as resident in Townsend Township in Norfolk County. For the present, Emily's place of birth is shown as Townsend. The 1881 census shows her name as Emily A. Wilcox. The family is also in Townsend at that time.

Emily's parents are buried in Hartford Baptist Church Cemetery in Townsend Twp. They appear to have had an earlier daughter named Emily. Only her date of death is shown on her stone - June 30, 1864.

Emily's parents appear in the Norfolk County Marriage Register:
Isaac B. Wilcox, born and residing Townsend, s/o John, married 28 Jan 1863 Elizabeth C. Burk, born and residing Walpole, d/o John.1
