Emily Gillen was born 8 Aug 1810 in Pennsylvania.  She is my maternal 3rd great grandmother.  Her parents are William Gillen and Rachel Frampton. On 11 Sep 1828 she married Rev. Isaac C. Hunter in Lawrence Co., Ohio.  To this couple were born five children: Susan (1829-1856), James (1832-1884), Martha born about 1838, Isaac C. born about 1839 and John E., born about 1842.

Her husband the Rev. Hunter was a well known itinerant preacher in the areas of Ohio and Michigan.  Sadly, he died at age 43 on 27 Jun 1842 in Gallipolis, Gallia, Ohio.

Emily then married David Pope on 1 Oct 1846 in Columbus, Franklin, Ohio.  She and David had two children: George born about 1847 and Emma born about 1851.  I don’t know what became of David as I cannot locate his death or burial records.
Emily married a third time on 5 Dec 1858 in Lawrence Co., Ohio to Joel Stover.  They had no children together.  I also cannot locate his death or burial information.

This is the Individual Information I have for Emily.

Emily’s death & burial information were located by my cousin, Amy on the website Interment.net.  We had looked for this information for a long time and Amy found it last year.

I would certainly like to know more about Emily’s 2nd and 3rd husbands and also about her children, Martha, Isaac C. and John.  I will keep looking, as we all know new records are always being posted online.  If any readers are familiar with this family, please contact me.
I created a memorial for Emily on FindAGrave.com and you can visit her memorial here.
