My name is Bob Edmisten and I think I may be of some assistance. My information shows that Emanuel Edmisson (Edmisten) was married, first, to Nancy Johnson and had a son Curtis. He ws married, second, to Nancy McVey. According to Curtis the family included 14 children; 12 of whom lived to adulthood. The 1840 (Polk) MO. sensus shows that six male and six female children were then living in the home. Of the 12, ten have been identified. John S., Martha and Ellen were named in a local history published in 1889. Seven others are identified in the 1850 (Randolph) Ar. census. These are William B., Martin, Melinda C., Nancy, Curtis, Mary and Stokley.
I have some other information if you need it. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
