Excerpt from Emma's history:
30 May 1918 we had another sweet baby come into our family and we named him Edward Harry Cornelius. Jennie Flanigan was working for me & dear Aunt Sarah Spendlove was still my nurse & always ready at every call. It was about this time that we had a little oil boom at Virgin and we was really loaded with work. Our house we turned it into a Hotel as near as we could. Had a lot of work done on it. Full of boarders & Henry was busy hauling the oilrigs & refinery and all machinery in from Lund so that was as close as the R. R came, and it had to be hauled in by Team and Wagon. I had two girls working for me at the time.
