  • Notes 
    • Daughter of Hiram Sibley, founder of Western Union. She married twice, first to Isaac Seymour ("Ike") Averell. They had two children, Elizabeth and James, both of whom died young (aged 11 and 27 respectively). Emily used part of her considerable fortune to found Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery in memory of James. She divorced Ike despite the fact that high society ladies at that time were expected to remain in their marriages come hell or high water; years later Ike was described by a local journalist simply as "a bad man". Her second, apparently much happier, marriage was to James Sibley Watson, son of her father's Western Union business partner, Don Alonzo Watson. Their son, James Jr. (known as "Sibley") became a successful and highly respected doctor. Her monument and unusual flat stone were designed by architect, author and occultist Claude Bragdon.
