Ever have that one relative whose story that you just can’t get out of your mind? I have several of those relatives like that but one that stands out for me is my 4th great aunt, Emma Drake Leist Herman. February of last year, I wrote about what I knew of her story which included the suicide of her last husband, Henry Herman, who drank carbolic acid they morning after they had a fight. As incredible as that tidbit was, Emma’s story continued to be fascinating as her death certificate revealed she died at 8 pm on 2 June 1916 at age 39 from shock with a contributory cause as lightning. What was she doing outside in a storm at 8 pm? Color me fascinated!
