I don't know if you still need any information but this was her obituary in the Palmyra Enterprise 8/2/1917

Palmyra Enterprise Aug 2 1917

Mrs E A Their

Emeline Amanda Jackson was born in Orange County NY, December 20, 1842. She was the fifth child in the family of seven born to John S and Mary Daly Jackson, who came to Palmyra when the deceased was four years old.

When eighteen years, she was married to Ambrose Jaquith and to them were born two children, William, now residing in Baraboo, and Alma, now Mrs W J Smith of Overly, ND.

January 24, 1864, Mr Jaquith responded to his country's call and started for the front. But at Madison he was taken ill with measles and died Feb 14 leaving his wife a widow at the age of twenty one, with two little ones dependent upon her.

June 30, 1872, she was married to Charles Their, and to them were born five children, four of whom died in infancy and the daughter Belle at the age of sixteen years.

About thirty five years ago, Mr and Mrs Their moved to Milwaukee, where he died some twelve years ago, after a number of years of almost helpless invalidism, during which he was cared for by his faithful wife.

These few facts give an idea of the service and sorrow that can be crowded into one life, and yet Mrs Their was not crushed by her sorrow but lived avoe it with heroic fortitude, thankful for the son and daughter, in whom she took deserving motherly pride.

She was a frequent visitor here, to the home of her sister, Mrs Martha Hughes, who with her sisters Mrs Mary Hunt of Whitewater, and Mrs Eliza Munger Simpson of Oberlin, Kansas, are the only surviving members; the deceased members are Mrs Sarah Chapin, Mrs Huldah Green Simpson, W S Jackson, and Mrs Their. She leaves two grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Her daughter was with her at the time of her death, having been called by her failing health and the son and family had just returned home, her condition not seeming to indicate an immediate dissolution. But death came suddenly and she slipped way to be at rest.

Mrs Their was a member of Summerfield church, Milwaukee and was a consientious Christian woman, faithful to every duty. She was also affliated with the Ladies' Aid and the W R C. She was independent in thought and not afraid to speak her mind. She enjoyed her friends and took pleasure in being of service to them. She delighted to meet them here always on Old Settlers Day and was here as usual on June 21.

The service at Milwaukee, was conducted by Rev Henry Coleman, D D, pastor emeritus of Summerfield church, the acting pastor, Rev S H Anderson, being on his vacation. The remains were brought here and taken to the Pleasant Valley for burial by the side of the husband of her youth. Rev A L Tucker read the ritual service at the grave and the Undertaker Smith had charge of the interment.

Among those who attended were her son and his family, her daughter, two sisters, Mrs Hunt and Mrs Hughes; Mrs Ida Erricsan and Mrs Frank Walsh of Whitewater, and Mrs Jas Burdick of Oconomowoc.
