Emma Lenora Borden (March 1, 1851 – June 10, 1927) was the elder sister of Lizzie Borden, who was the central figure in the hatchet murders of her father and stepmother on August 4, 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts in the United States. There are only three known pictures of Emma before age thirty. One was with her birth mother Sarah, another about age ten, and a final photograph in her twenties (about the time General Custer died at Little Big Horn). Emma would have been five years old when her sister Alice Esther was born, and seven when she died. Emma's sister Lizzie was born when Emma was nine, and their mother, Sarah died when Emma was twelve. Emma's father, Andrew Jackson Borden, married Abby Durfee Gray when she was fourteen and Lizzie was five. It was Emma who reared Lizzie until Emma went away to school for about a year and a half. After the murder trial in 1893, the two sisters purchased a modern home (half-interest each), which Lizzie christened Maplecroft (306 French St). They lived together there for 12 years. Neither married or had children.
