Online info for Milton's family gives Thomas marring someone else and dying much later in Kentucky.
Thomas Emerson b. abt. 1882 Ky signs up for military 19 Jun 1912 in Missouri, I believe, age 30 and 6 months. Says he was born Clinton,Hickman,Ky. Assigned to 14th Cavalry comp. E.
He's at Fort Sam,Bexar,Texas in 1920, 39 yrs old, born Ky. 14th Cavalry Medical detachment. His death cert. list no parents, married, d. 10 Sep 1924,pending U.S. veterans. He appears to been buried in Waelder,Fayette,Texas on the 11th.
The only family of Emersons I found in Hickman,Ky. was Robert H. Emerson and wife Mary Frances Galbraith and their sons. Their son Peter has a son Thomas with a birth date of Nov 1884 Ky. But, I don't if this is the one. If anyone has anything they have on a Thomas b. abt 1882 Ky. I sure could use some help. Thanks Barbara
