She Was a Spy for the Union
Mrs. Emily Haines Harrison, 87 years old, died at the Bickerdyke home in Ellsworth recently. She was a nurse early in the Civil war and later became a spy for the Union forces. Shortly after the Civil war she settled on a farm near Salina and was driven off by an Indian raid. She was widely known all over Kansas.
