Re: ERW<ROSETTA EMMONS IN Fayette Iowa
Esquire Riley William Emmons 1815 - 1896 m. Rosetta Warren was my 3rd Great Grandfather.Are you from this family?
"Overton Notes - Family moved to Missouri with children on Sept 20, 1885 to homestead.Farmer and carpenter (passed both vocations on to Harmon).After a stroke he couldn't speak or walk.He would play with the children and make furniture, etc.Ruth Goodman - Said they went to Iowa before coming to Missouri"
The above quotes are from family records on ERW's son Harmon passed down from Mabel Agnes Emmons-Overton, daughter of Harmon Riley Emmons, son of Joseph Warren Emmons, son of ERW Emmons.
I'll be glad to correspond.
