found some information regarding Joseph Embree for you.
Joseph Embree, born in West Garafraxa Township, Wellington County, Ontario, March 4th 1877, died 1959
Married Charlotte Ann Teidt (died 1926-27)

I'll go back a bit from there... Joseph Embree's parents were Joseph Embree and Agnes McBride.
they had 7 children, the Joseph you are referring to being one of them. Their other 6 children were William Embree (born in Wellington County Ontario, married and lived in "western canada"), Margret J. Embree (born in Wellington County ON, married Daniel Taylor of Grand Valley ON), John Embree (born Wellington County ON march 10 1966, died at Windsor Essex County, ON March 12 1944, buried there. married on May 27 1896 to Jane Ann Eveleigh born april 15 1871, died April 30 1944, daughter of William and Frances.), Mary Ann Embree (born in East Garafraxa Township, Wellington County ON on October 31 1869, married William John McGladdrey of Rockwood ON), Hannah Matilda Embree (born Garafraxa Township, Wellington County, ON May 9 1871, married at Galt, Waterloo County ON Sept 21 1892 to John Alexander Byers of Alma, Wellington County born feb 19 1870son of Joseph and Elizabeth), Robert Embree (born in Wellington County ON, married "lived out west")
