  • Notes 
    • “Emma Aurelia Saunders Hornberger was a descendant of Thomas Sherman, who lived in Diss County, Norfolk, England, and died in the year 1493. The arms and crest of the Sherman family were conferred by Oliver Crombwell. Philip Sherman came to America in 1633 and settled in Roxbury, Massachusetts. One of her ancestors, James Sherman, was married to Ruth Brewster, a direct descendant of the Elder William Brewster who came to this country on the Mayflower.

      “Emma enjoyed music and as a young woman taught the piano. Her special talent was as a homemaker and devoted wife and mother, but her love of people and willingness to help others was also an important part of her life.

      “She spent many hours at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Akron, Ohio. Among her responsibilities were teaching Sunday School and serving as secretary of the parish and regional Woman’s Guilds. A favorite hobby was quilting, and in the Quilting Circle it was said that her stitches were the tiniest of all.

      “Emma was honored as a worker for Christ when following her death her name was inscribed in the ‘Book of Remembrances’ at Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland, Ohio.”
