Biography

Emma was born in 1881, the daughter of Edwin Upton Powers and Minnie Aurelia Howes.[1]

Powers family members had several farms in Leominster, MA. One that remains today (2020), was located on Wachusett Street in Leominster, Mass. It was/is the first farm on the left on Wachusett Street after turning on to Wachusett Street from Union Street or Pleasant Street, up the hill from the #6 schoolhouse. There were others on Hill St. and Lowe St. at one time.

NOTE: This Emma (Powers) Hatstat and Manly Hatstat had a male child that was born and died at birth March 25, 1902. The child was not named.[2]

NOTE: The 1930 US Census source indicates that Emma was a divorcee at that time. I never heard my grand-mother, (Dorothy Tessier) indicate that her parents were divorced. There is an indication there was trouble in the marriage, by a 1930 newspaper article, (see below).
