I'm trying to find information on Doctor William Emrick.I have a family history of this person dating from 1661 starting in Germany.It was compiled by James B. McCurley.

I think this should be enough to identify to whom I'm speaking of.I'm interested in William Emrich(in life he used Emrick)I have items with this spelling and also in death notice in Baltimore Sun 12-15-1958.
Doctor Emrick made a trip to Brazil on March 1920 or 1925.
He was given a gift form the people of (Port Vele Ho) Brazil.Not Sure of spelling of City.He was living in Baltimore before he went there.I'm trying to determine why he went there and what he did to receive this gift.Can any one tell me anything about this person and his life and trip to Brazil.????Family used both spellings of name Emrich
