Emily was the daughter of John Devine and Sarah Lees. Her father was from Ireland, and her mother from England. Note: Some sources give her father’s name as
Divine, but his tombstone clearly shows
Emily married Methodist minister John G. Wilson, an English immigrant.
John was District Superintendent of the Methodist Philadelphia Conference, and pastor of the Wharton Memorial Methodist Church in Philadelphia.
The couple had no children, and John died in 1933. In 1935 and 1940, Emily was living in the Methodist Episcopal Home for the Aged in Philadelphia.
If you know where to get a good photo of Wilson (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels),
