     Children with Joseph M. Flora:

Bunderman shows Joseph and Naomi with a daughter Emma, with no further information. No child appears with them in the 1860 or 1870 census, and in 1900 she reported having had no children. His will left his property after the death of his wife to his brother and two sisters. More likely "Emma" was actually Naomi, who appears to have been known by that nickname. She is listed by that name in the 1870 census, and in the deed she and her husband wrote in 1873.25,26,27,28,16
