I know a little bit about Eme Johnson. I have notes taken about her in the files of several of the men she was married to or took care of.
The first indication that I have ever found for her was her marriage to James Fuckett as Aveline Lambe in St. Dunstan’s parish, Stepneyon 8 June, 1651.
The film of the original marriage record for these parents is not available. The records have been abstracted and published, and give this information:
June 8, 1651: James Fuckett of Yarmouth in ye Isle of Wighte, Marriner & Avesline Lambe of Wapping, M.
The births of two children are recorded in St. Dunstan’s
"William Son of James ffugatt of Greenbanks and Anne uxor" ("uxor" = his wife) on May 23 1652
"James, Sonne of James ffaugate of ___ittstreet, Marriner, & Amy uxor" on 18 Dec 1653.
Then I found just recently a marriage record here on Genforum
Eme Fuckett of Greenbanks married at the age of 28 (widowed) Nicholas Johnson of Greenbanks, mariner aged 26 years on December 29 1656 in Stepney. Found on GenForum. Entry 2377. She says Source is a film of the LDS library: 597246.
For a long time I thought that she had been the wife of Daniel Johnson, an apparent brother to William Johnson of Virginia. I still believe that William Johnson was connected to her husband, but I don’t know exactly how.
This may be the Nicholas Johnson we are looking for. I have not looked into him yet, other than a general internet search. The date fits very well into the timeline and the location of Rappahannock County.

Then she shows up in 1669 in Virginia. It appears that she was hired to take care of John Cox since he speaks twice about her wages.

John Cox of Old Rapphannock County who willed to Em Johnson was the brother of William Cox
"William Cox, brother of John Cox whose will dated "9th day of November in the year of our Lord 1669" and recorded in Essex County, Virginia, 10 February, 1695, constitutes and ordains "my well-beloved kinsman, Henry Cox, the sonne of my brother, William Cox, and now present in Virginia, my sole [executor] of this my last will and Testament"
Then before January 3, 1670 she takes another husband, Richard Loes of Old Rappahannock County.

Captain Richard Loes left his entire estate in MD to his son-in-law (stepson) James Fugate "Fuckett" incorrectly transcribed as "James Tackett". Loes left James his deceased mother's pewter, 2 Christian man-servants, cattle, horses, etc. and the right to live at his Rappahannock co. plantation for 4 years. James married Dorothy a few months after Loes death and they lived in Rapp. Co for about 4 years before going to Baltimore Co. MD to check out his inheritance. One of the man-servants that he inherited mut have been Thomas Wallingford. Loes had bought or patented land with Rice Jones in Rapp. Co. They lived next to each other. Rice Jones' Christian servant was John Powell. James Fugate and Dorothy came home to VA in 1685 and soon separated. Fugate ran off to Henrico Co with John Powell's dau. Martha and married her in 1694. They went to NC where upon hearing that Dorothy Fugate's stepfather, Thomas Gaines, had died in 1699 (who had a life interest in her inherited land), James hired an attorney to try to sell the land, claiming that he was entitled to it by marriage to Dorothy. He stated that they had been separated 16 years but that she was still his wife.
Name: Richard Loes
Date: 20 April, 1675
Date: 7 July, 1675
To son-in-law James Sacket , estate in Maryland; to son-in-law Henry Williamson , land in Rappahannock, formerly bought of Richard Bennett and Henry Corbin ; executor Henry Williamson ; witnesses Mary Hodges , Richard Grenstead , Edward Thomas .
Note regarding his speaking of his son-in-law (stepson), James Sacket. In other transcriptions I have seen it written as James Tacket. Apparently it was James Facket or Fucket.
So apparently Eme Lambe Fugate Johnson Loes died between 28 January, 1672 and 20 April, 1675 at about the age of 51.
Interesting enough, in Mary Fugate’s Fugate papers, there is a map that places the land that James Fugate (Fuckett) had very near the land of Peter Fugate. I have seen it but did not copy it.
So I don’t know if there was a connection between the two Fugates, James and Peter, but I thought that was a very interesting coincidence if indeed it was a coincidence that their lands were so close together.
