Notes for Emily Carpenter
Several family trees online at Ancestry.com list her death as 17 May 1917 in Rowan Co., Ky.
I cannot find a death record, though, even searching for all 1917 deaths in Rowan or Elliott Co., all 17 May 1917 deaths in the entire state, and all deaths of women with given name Em?ly or Emm* and father’s surname Carpenter, any date. Furthermore, if she died in 1917 (or any time after 1895) it would mean that she and George Wesley Bradley were divorced, and if so, it would seem uncommon for George and his second wife Alpha Whisman to have raised Wesley and Emily’s children. So I suspect that someone may have entered the wrong death date, which then spread to other trees.
