  • Notes 
    • Emile and his brother were sent to England to lived with their maternal grandmother for further education sometime in their mid teens, and then were sent out to Rangoon, Burma to their uncle Edward Fowle. Edward took Emile into partnership with him in his flourishing business. Emile became one of the big businessmen in Rangoon and employed in his office as a clerk, Charles Brotherton, whom he had known in England and gone to school with him there. Emile was very friendly with the Brothertons and often visited their home....As was the custom in those days with the dearth of European women in the country, he had a Burmese "wife" who bore him a daughter named Jeannette (known as Jennie.) When the child was about 6-9 months old the woman left the child with Emile and she went off with another man. Emile took the child to Mrs. Brotherton, who had four little girls including a new baby, and asked her if she would care for the child. This she did, bringing up the child with her own children. After Charles Brotherton's death in 1877, Emile wanted Charles' widow (Annie Hilda) to marry him, but she did not think he should be burdened with a woman twice widowed and with children, but he persisted and at last she consented and they were married four years after Brotherton's death. Emile was very fond of music and played the violin. He and his wife went to all the operas, concerts, etc. that came to Rangoon and Emile would play many of the arias on his violin. Emile had blue eyes and brown hair and was quite a bit taller than his wife. At his uncle Edward Fowle's death, Emile inherited quite a lot of money as well as the business and while he lived the family was very comfortably off. He was very fond of his stepdaughters and they had a governess for five or six years and were taught music and painting -- things that young ladies in those days were supposed to have for an eduction.
