Acquaintances of Emily Sibley Watson

Maurice D. Youngman was an Atlantic City, NJ homeopathic physician. He published pamphlets extolling the virtues of Atlantic City as a resort for invalids, especially those with lung problems. Emily Sibley Watson speaks of following his advice during her miscarriage on board ship to Egypt.  The following year, Elizabeth Sibley speaks of visiting Dr. & Mrs. Youngman in Atlantic City. An 1894 letter from Dr. Youngman to Emily Sibley Watson, when she was pregnant with her second son, advises a homeopathic diet.
