Ed: I think that your Elijah Emery could be the son of Joseph Emery and Elizabeth Mason. Joseph was born in Acton, Mass 3 Aug 1757 and his wife was born in Concord, Mass 14 May 1759 and they got married in Concord 13 Apr 1780. They moved to Rindge, NH and then up to Skowhegan, Maine where they lived until their deaths, Joseph dying 17 Mar 1842 and Elizabethon 26 May 1838. They had at least four children Tilley, Betsey, Joseph and Artemus, all born around the time of Elijah. Elizabeth was my 3rd g-aunt. My 3rd g-grandfather, her brother Tilley, and his wife Hannah Weatherbee also moved to Skowhegan and Tilley and Joseph are both listed as founders of the town in the History of Skowhegan, Maine. Joseph Emery's father's name was John Emery, born 2 Jan 1725 in Chelmsford, Mass and his mother was Mary Munroe of the Concord Munroes. John and Mary were married in Chelmsford 24 Apr 1745. His father was Zechariah Emery born 12 Mar 1704 in Kittery, Maine but died 30 Aug 1776 in Chelmsford, Mass. Zechariah's father was Daniel Emery and his mother was Margaret Gowen. Hope this is helpful.
