William EMSLIE (son of Wm. EMSLIE & Mary ABERDOUR) b. abt. 1786/87 chr. 15 Jan 1787 at St. Nicholas, Aberdeen, Scotland m. in abt 1815 Margaret ROSS b.between 1786 -1796 in probably Strathdon, Aberdeen, Scotland. They had at least one child-Jane EMSLIE b. 1816 in Edinburgh,Scotland. In 1828, when Jane was 12, they came to Albany, NY; I believe. (Naturalization Rec. between 1834-1844 and Census records show Wm. getting citizenship in Albany & Census records 1850 & 1860 show Jane & William living with a woman with a different last name in Albany.) Jane EMSLIE met a George POPE bef. 1840. They later lived in Brooklyn, New York and had the folowing children: Jane Ann POPE, Louisa POPE, George Washington POPE, William Emslie POPE & Glorianna POPE. If you are familiar with these EMSLIE's I'd like to hear from you.
