Emma Flower Taylor was the only daughter of one of the richest men in the country. But her riches didn’t protect her from life’s unhappiness. She lost her two brothers and a son, and she fell in love and married a handsome man only to divorce him for his roving eye. Blackmail and murder touched her life as well. In spite of her personal unhappiness, Emma Flower Taylor was charitable to every organization that needed her, and this legacy of kindness lives on in the Watertown area.
