    Biography Emily Bowyer Brock Gordon was Richard and Susanna (Foreman) Bowyer's second eldest daughter, born in Canada circa 1876-77. She immigrated to the U.S. from Canada with her family circa 1879-1880. She married Phinandy "Nandy" Brock on June 1, 1894 at Drummond Island, Chippewa County, Michigan. They had seven children: Wellington, Florence, Irene, Marvin, Ervin Nandy, and Harvey, who died young.

    After her husband died in 1918, she was found on the 1920 census working as a cook at Jewel Scott's lumber camp on Drummond Island. Her youngest son, Nandy, age 11, was also living there, as was her future husband, Richard Gordon, a lumber man. By the time of the 1930 census she was listed as Emily "Gorden," divorced, living with her two youngest sons, Marvin R. and "Erwin" N. Brock, in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
