EMMA SOPHIA PETERSEN COX was of Danish blood. She came from Copenhagen, Denmark, where she was born. Her mother was a widow when she arrived in Manti, but she soon married again. She seemed to have small patience with the older children, which made life very hard for Emma. Emma married very young, glad to bear the honorable name of her husband. When he died, leaving her a widow with a family of 4 small children, she bravely bore every hardship and tried to make her little ones comfortable. Her children have grown to be honorable people, striving to be a credit to their father's name.
