About Ellen Tucker Emerson

The daughter of Ralph Waldo & Lidian Emerson, she is buried beside her father.

"Ellen Tucker Emerson (1839-1909) was a life-long Concord resident and an active member of the community. Never married, she looked after her aging parents, traveled to Britain, Europe, and Egypt with her father after the fire at Bush in 1872, helped him keep his place in his papers on the lecture platform in his final years, and assisted James Elliot Cabot in editing his manuscripts. She also wrote a manuscript biography of her mother (published in 1980).

A member of Concord's School Committee, Ellen taught Sunday school at the First Parish and arranged social dances in the Town Hall. She lived in her parents' home until her death."
