In a letter from the hospital chaplain. Emery died of pneumonia on Dec. 31.

Charles Emery was widely known in Maroa and Austin township. He was a member of the Second army Artillery Corps, headquarters troop. He went with the contingent of drafted men from Macon county in April 1918. He first went to Fort Washington, Md. He returned in the end of July and spent a furlough in Maroa. Later he sailed for foreign shores and reached England on the Saturday before the signing of the armistice. Then he went across the channel into France. In the last letter received from him, he stated he was in the hospital with an attack of bronchitis. That letter was written on Dec. 3. On Tuesday morning two letters from the chaplain were received. One stated that he was sick with pneumonia but was doing nicely. That letter was written on Dec. 23. The other letter was written on Dec. 31 and stated that the boy had died. Emery was buried at a point 125 miles from Paris.11

     The body of Charles W. Emery, whose death occurred in Lemans, France, while serving with overseas forces, arrived in Maroa, Friday night, and funeral services will be conducted in Maroa Methodist church Sunday afternoon 2:30 by Rev. C. E. Jenney, members of Weilepp-Cramer post, American Legion, in a body attending this service. The burial will be in Ridge Cemetery.
     Charles Emery was farming in Austin township when the work of conscription began and knowing that he was eligible for service, at least from the age standpoint, at once began selling his property and making preparations for call and when that moment came, he arranged his business affairs and was ready for the word, never giving a thought to the possibility of claiming any exemption. His death occurred Dec. 31, 1918, and was due to pneumonia. The surviving members of the family are his brothers, Louis L. and Lawrence E. Emery, both residing in Austin township.12

While in Soux (sic) City, where he enlisted, he was secretary of the camp Y. M. C. A. In September his unit was transferred to Camp Cody, New Mexico, for training, and there, in December, he became ill, suffering a mastoid abscess which caused his death, after an operation had failed to give the hoped-for relief.
     Beside Sweethearts Grave.
     When his death was announced, the family expected that the body would be returned to Illinois for burial in the cemetery, west of Maroa. where his parents and other members of the family were buried. However, he had requested his brother, who was with him, that his body be taken to Whiting for burial. Then it was recalled that two years ago the young woman to whom he was betrothed had died in Whiting and was buried there. The soldier did not express a wish to be buried in any certain part of the cemtery (sic), but he did say that he wanted his body buried in the Whiting cemetery, and there was no hesitation in doing just as he had requested should be done, the funeral being Feb. 3. His age was 32 years. (photo) WALTER EMERY.12
