Re: Jesse EMMONS - 1788, Burlington Co., NJ
I found a Jesse Emmons (b ~1782) on the 1850 Census -- incarcerated in the New Jersey State Penitentiary for larceny.
I am descended from his daughter Beulah (b 1825). She married Thomas Kerlin, who married Hannah Clayton. Thomas and Hannah divorced, and in 1900, Thomas was living in Michigan as a boarder in his cousin, Brazilla Emmons', household.
I will try to find more information about Jesse and post whatever I discover.
