Elizabeth; Thanks so much for the info. and yes,as soon as I get my e-mail fixed I will let you know as I would love to see all your Emberton info. I looked up Silas Emberton in the L.D.S. site and while they do show a Silas as having been married to a Polly Ann Hays,they also show a Silas as having been married to a Mary Billingsly and when I enter some of the childrens names (which I have from his'pension records) they show Mary Biilingsly as the mother.Nothing in his records indicate he was married twice,but who knows? Was Polly a stepmother to some of the kids? I am especially interested to find out if Polly Ann Hays was Susan J.Embertons' mother by blood or not as that would determine whether I was descended from Hays or Billingslys. As I mentioned before Susan J. married my' g,g,great grandfather Thomas Jefferson Houck. Also,where did you get your info. on Silas Embertons' parents being Thomas Emberton & Anna(Anny) Jackson. Could there have been two Silas Embertons? Any info you might have would be appreciated. Once again thanks for your time and help. Yours,Greg.
