NoteWhen Manuel Markle died in 1887, Emily was left with three young children. At some point, her brother John Lawrason moved in with her, for he was present with her and her children at the time of the Canadian 1891 census in Blenheim Township, Oxford County.

By the time of the U.S. 1900 census, however, Emily and her children are in Rich, Lapeer, Michigan. There, Emily is shown as a farmer. Her three children are still with her and her two sons are shown as farm labour. Her brother John is not present. The census page shows the family coming to the U.S. in 1890, but, since they were still in Blenheim in 1891, this will not be accurate.

By 1910, the family is in Bad Axe, Huron County, Michigan, and this time their arrival in the U.S. is dated to 1892. Emily and her daughter Amy are living with Wallace and his wife and are only two households away from son Asa and his wife.

According to the McGill Digital Library county maps, Manuel's father, George Markle, owned two part lots - lots 9 and 10 on the sixth concession of Blenheim. This is approximately half way between Drumbo and Richwood. Manuel and Emily are actually buried in what is now called the Richwood United Church Yard Cemetery in Blenheim Township. A photo of their stone appears on the Oxford County cemeteries pages.
