Biography

Emily was a fine singer, who was often mentioned in the pages of the Niagrara Falls Gazette. For example, on Monday, Dec 20, 1926, the Gazette reported on a concert at First Presbyterian Church, Niagara Falls: “Miss Emily Tragheim sang a solo at the service. Miss Tragheim has a soft, mellow contralto voice and her rendition of ‘No candle was there, and no Fire,’ by Liza Lehman, was delightfully presented.” This was less than a year before her marriage to James Lewis.

A quiet but pretty wedding was solemnized on Thursday, Sept. 1st, at 2089 Culp street, by Rev. S. L. W. Harton, pastor of Lundy's Lane United church, when Emily Jan Ayton, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Tragheim of Glasgow, Scotland, became the bride of James Norman Palmer Leis of Orlando, Florida. After the ceremony, Mr/ and Mrs. Lewis left for New York enroute to their home in Orlando, Florida.

Emily continued to sing in church in Orlando, and to appear on the radio:
