Family Members Who Have Served in the Minnesota Legislature:
Henry G. Emmons
He was of Norwegian ancestry.
His obituary states, "Mr. Emmons had been gravely ill for several months, but regardless of his physical condition he went to St. Paul and took up his duties as a legislator. He had pledged his constituency to vote for a tonnage tax and when the bill came up disregarded the commands of his physicians, arose from bed, dressed and went to the capitol. Friends provided him with a couch in the lobby where he lay until the vote was called . . . he took his place at his desk and registered his vote when his name was called. He immediately left the capitol and this was his last official act."
He died at a hospital in Rochester, Minnesota.
He was a member of the Norwegian Lutheran Church.
Religion provided by his obituary.
