Over the next few years, their son, Hartford Conn, was born on April 11, 1905; Emmie's mother, Celia, died on November 18, 1908 and Susie married August Krueger at Emmie and John's house on September 7, 1911. During this time John was running a blacksmith shop in Mt. Vernon on Spring Street and the house they were living in at one point burned down causing them to lose everything.
Emmie was an accomplished seamstress and not only sewed for her family but also for other people. She could look at a picture of a dress in a catalog and make one just like it. She no doubt made the dresses Emma and baby Hartford were wearing in this picture and probably also made Susie's, Gracie's and her own.

During the next ten years, Emmie's father, Matt, died on March 21, 1920; their daughter, Emma, married Elmer D. Hopkins in Jellico, Tennessee on October 11 that year and their son, Hartford, married Betty Mulliner on November 9, 1928 in Galesburg, Illinois.
