My name is Susan Smith Emert and I am researching the descendants of John Alden of Plymouth and Duxbury, Massachusetts; Walter Palmer of Charlestown, Massachusetts and Stonington, Connecticut; and Daniel Morrison of Newbury, Massachusetts. I am also looking for the ancestors of David William Scott of Port Rowan, Ontario, Canada. My husband, Andy, is researching the descendants of Johan Philip Emert of Leipzig, Germany and Berks, Pennsylvania, and Wesley Newton of Buckingham, Virginia. He is also looking for information about the ancestors of John O'Bryant of Buckingham, Virginia.
