Thank you Harold. I don't think these emmerson's are the same family. I don't see any I recognize unless they changed their surname. All our family are Emersons like yours. I have a Robert Emerson, Odell Emerson on dad side of family and a Nelson Emerson on Mom side. He married my cousin Roberta Rixie. If you have any connection let me know Hal Scurlock.

May I ask why you have Drury Willis' name down as Drury WilliaA? Is this just to indicate he was the first Drury Willis?

I am descended from Drury's brother Eber and was just curious. If you would like info on Eber I would be glad to share what I do have.

Have re posted an easier to read copy of message. Have tried using the email address you have listed on your posting but it was invalid. I also looked up your profile and your email address was still invalid. you may want to in the future correct your email address, or email the person directly, if you have any questions. It is easier to get a response then posting a question on a board with an invalid email address. Thank you.

I am so sorry about the mix up, but when I click on my name anywhere it says: slemin46@yahoo.com which is my correct email address. It has been the same for 2 years now. If there is another one around I don't know what it is.

Thank you,
Susie McFarland Lemin slemin46@yahoo.com

Your email address you entered in your posting was listed as slemin@yahoo.com and that was the problem. I see you have corrected it to slemin46@yahoo.com. You just forgot to post your entire address. I did correct content of my posting manually, Family Tree Maker Software inserted a letter for desigination of each direct ancestor. I Hope someone can use the information I posted.
