Glover Twins Born in 1873

My second great grandparents, Samuel Stillman Glover, Jr. and Adaline L. Glover, nee Dyer became the parents of twins on 24 July 1873, 140 years ago today.

Source:  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints [LDS], "FamilySearch," database, Michigan Births 1867-1902 (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-267-11882-40941-68?cc=1459684&wc=10520008 : accessed 10 July 2013), Manistee County Birth for Emma Glover and ____ Glover; date 24 July 1873; record number 1307.  

Emma Dora and Emerson Glover were born in Manistee, Michigan.  It was news of the day in the Manistee newspapers.  The Manistee Standard for 26 July 1873 reported, "Mrs. S. S. Glover has recently presented the "Squire" with a pair of twins."  The meaning of the word "squire" for this article is a judge or other local dignitary.  Samuel S. Glover was the Manistee City Justice or Justice of the Peace at the time of the twins birth.  

The record above states Adaline's maiden name, Dyer, which is accurate.  I found it odd that no first name was recorded for the male twin, who was named Emerson. Emma and Emerson were the eighth and ninth children of ten, who were born to Samuel and Adaline.

Unfortunately, Emma and Emerson both died at a young age.  Emerson died three months later in October, 1874 of inflammation of bowels and Emma died at the age of six and a half months in February, 1874 of cholera.
