Emma Louise NEVILLE

Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
Emma Louise NEVILLE, wife of John Holdredge HOXIE, was born 30 Mar 1884 in Quebec, Canada. According to family sources and her marriage record, Emma's parents were Thomas Neville and Margaret (Marguerite) Corcoran. She immigrated to America in 1905 at the age of 21.

John H. Hoxie and Emma Louise Neville were married in Cambridge, Massachusetts on 31 Dec 1915. There are two records for this marriage both recorded in the Massachusetts Vital Records 1911-1915, that I have access to via my subscription to NEHGS. One is a typewritten record from Boston (2:592) and the other is the handwritten record for Cambridge (632:447). For both this was their first marriage. John is a 35 year old insurance underwriter living at 194 Huntington Ave in Boston and Emma is a 29 year old saleswoman, living at 17 Creighton St. in Cambridge. They were married by John J. Fletcher, Priest at 1448 Dorchester Ave. in Dorchester, MA. It doesn't look there is a church at that location today. Their parents names are listed correctly. [I love a good marriage record!]

Emma's photo shared at by a family member,  shows a mature woman, with stylish hair and dress. It is a lovely side profile photo. John and Emma lived mostly in West Hartford, CT. where they had a daughter Eugenia Barbara HOXIE.

According to her gravestone and family records, Emma died, a widow, 2 Sept 1970 of cerebral thrombosis (family records) and she is buried next to her husband. Their daughter is also buried here.
