I came across your post on Genealogy.com. And one of the names you listed from your husband's family line looks to be my husband's great grandfather. William Emerson Deam. My husband is actually named after William Emerson; his name is Emerson McBryde.
William Emerson's daughter is my husband's paternal grandmother. Her name is Donna McBryde (Deam).
Anyway, let me know if you'd like some info on William Emerson's line.
Have a great day! Thanks, Christine McBryde; Arkansas
