When Lizzie's sister Emma Averell emigrated on Feb 28, 1908, age 16,  from Mullan, Ballinderry Bridge, Ireland she was going to her aunt Mrs. M. Devlin, in Hudson, Illinois. I cannot find this aunt in 1900 or 1910 and I don't know if the M stands for her aunt's first name or her aunt's husband's first name. Emma did have an aunt Martha Workman who married James Wilson in 1874 in Ireland and Martha did die in Hudson, McLean Co. in 1925. James died 1912 so Martha was not likely remarried before 1908. Wonder if the emigration record is in error as to Emma's aunt's surname.
Martha Wilson's obit is 29 Jun 1925 in Bloomington, Illinois, USA in Newspaper Title:The Pantagraph
