Hi, My husband is also descended from Willima EMLEY > John EMLEY > but to Elisha EMLEY. This would be the brother of your Robert. I have the other dates, but I only have a year for the birth of William. Do you have a date? Do you have any information about Robert or his ancestors that you can share.
I also have William's father as Thomas EMELY, III & his grandfather as Thomas EMLEY, Jr. (some dates too & I'm willing to share). This is where I have conflicting information. Was Thomas Jr (AKA the younger) the son of Thomas Sr (AKA the elder), or was it John Emley Jr.
Anyone with answers to my questions or having any questions I can help with, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best to all, Ana Ryan
