Emily P. Beeler was born in 1860, probably in Lebanon, Marion County, Kentucky, the daughter of Christopher and Mary E. Beeler. Emily Beeler became a kindergarten teacher, perhaps because she aspired not only to teach children, but also to lead an independent, autonomous, and useful life as a single woman.

“She was a tiny woman, as little and quick as a sparrow, with warm blue eyes
behind spectacles and a little sparrow colored bun of hair at her neck.
She was changeless and ageless.”
- Martha Gellhorn
