Rosetta "Essie" WEEKS.



Emarilla WEEKS116 was born on 23 April 1859 in Virginia.49

The census indicated Emarilla was perhaps born in 1856 or 1857. I imagine the date of her birth given in the McColman book is on her grave marker. Her death date is given as 27 Feb 1878, but this is obviously an error, as she had twins born in 1891.

She married Andrew Jackson Hylton, son of George and Annie Marie Harman Hylton, 27 Feb 1879, Floyd Co, VA. She was 22; he was 25. His parents listed as George and Mary Hylton; hers as Matthew and Ituria Weeks.

In 1880, they were living with Andrew's parents. Burks Fork, Floyd, VA, Hh 272
