Sunday's Obituary: Mrs. Emma J. Hawk

Finding the obituary of a Great, Greataunt, can be very rewarding to verify what you know and also open up many more branches to your family tree. Finding information on females can be daunting and obituaries can be very informative, unlike the census records they are found on before they are married. 
In this case I found her married name and her surviving children and brothers and also the married name of a surviving sister.
One curious thing is that she died at her daughters home, who has the same married name of Hawk.
