The death of Emma Buck, Paul Lombardo

Interviewee: Paul Lombardo. Although she tried several times, Carrie was never able to bring her mother Emma home from the Virginia Colony. (DNAi Location: Chronicle > Trial of Carrie Buck > Epilogue > Emma never came home)

Emma Buck was buried at the Colony in the spring of 1944. She'd lived here for 24 years by that time. Her daughter Carrie, the famous person from the case of Buck vs. Bell tried on many occasions to get her out of the Colony, to take care of her, to bring her to her own home. Unfortunately Emma's health, and circumstances within Carrie's household never allowed that to happen.
