Re: William,Thomas E and Ira Sharp SC to Al
I saw your recent post listing Emery's children as Joel B. and others, however, all these years I have been unable to find documentation on Joel B. as Emery's son, although I'm sure he is.On the 1850 census Joel is not listed as living at home and was married to Eliza Jane Drain at the time living in another county next door to Eliza's family.Joel was working as a Miller at the time.My Joel (whom we always believed was Joel Bradford Sharp according to his son, Thomas Albert Sharp) was born in 1825 in NC.He is probably the son listed on the 1830 census as 5, but I could never find proof of his name.
I am attending the Sharp family reunion in California next weekend and would love to have some way to document evidence that Joel B. was Emery's son.
The death certificate a family member gave me shows Joel's father as Jas. Emery.Are James Emery and Emery the same?
It further shows his mother as Anny or Amy - not legible.Thanks for any help you can give.We have a wonderful photo of Joel but some say his name was Joel Emery.Are there two Joels?
Thomas Albert, Joel's son, named one of his sons, Joel also. I emailed you personally, but wanted to post here as well.
Thanks for any help. Carole in California
