Alex Emley ~ Teamster ~ "he was quite a horse man"

Alex Emley
B. January 1, 1848 ~ d. April 5, 1925

Alex, or Alexander, Emley was one of the sons of John and Clarinda McCollister Emley who lived in Corwin, Ohio. Alex's father John was born in New Jersey and he was a farm laborer. Alex was a teamster and had a good reputation for loving and understanding horses.

Alex was married to Mary L. Sidles Emley on October 9, 1872. They do not appear to have had any children. None are mentioned in his obituary, dated April 15, 1925 in the The Miami-Gazette Weekly Newspaper of Waynesville. After the death of his wife Mary on June 27, 1924, Alex had gone to live with one of his sisters in the county outside of Waynesville. According to his death notice which was published in the Miami-Gazette on April 8, 1925, he died at Blair's Hospital in Lebanon and the funeral was held in the Chapel in Miami Cemetery on the following Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Rev. L. A Washburn officiated at both their funerals. Alex and Mary are both buried in Miami Cemetery.

I really can’t stand bicyclists who ride in the middle of the road knowing full well you’re stuck behind them. Do they ever move over so you can pass?Tires Miami
