Emm's did settle in Onondaga County in New York from Germany in the 1850's. I am a decendant of that line. I can go back to that time but have had difficulty finding out the exact location they were from in Germany but I do know it was Bavaria. I also don't know if other siblings settled elsewhere in the U.S. but my g-g grandfather was Sebastian Emm and he came to Syracuse. I don't have that information in front of me but I can check on Anna.
