Re: Benjamin Towler Embry b. 1820 Green County KY
Hello, I recently found an extensive family tree my grandfather made before he passed away.My grandfather was married to Katherine Embry Scott.She was the great granddaughter of Ben Towler Embry and Sallie McGee Taylor.According to the family tree, Ben Towler Embry's father was a man named Samuel P. Embry.Samuel P. Embry's parents were Henry Embry (who moved from VA to KY in 1790) and Nancy Patterson.Ben Towler Embry's mother was Mary Towler (1800-1837.)Mary Towler's father was Benjamin Towler of VA.Records of Ben Towler Embry's lineage according to the tree end there.
However, many generations of parents, grandparents, and great grandparents are listed for Sallie McGee Taylor.About 6 grandparents down the line are Peter Presley the first and second, both of whom were members of the House of Burgesse in VA for several years in the late 1600's and early 1700's.
I hope this helps and isn't too confusing. It's a lot of names to deal with.I'm not sure where my grandfather got his information but most of it seems to be fairly accurate.
