Edie,

Are you the Edith that was in the Indiana, PA Historical Society library sometime back in the 80's at the same time I was? I pretty much found what I was looking for.

GEORGE is a tough one for everybody. If you don't already know, George is "earthworker".

My great-grandfather was George who came to PA around 1849.

I still live in Kittanning. I have a lot of information, mostly not connected, New York and Pennsylvania.

Based on all the information and studies that I have done, I honestly believe the variations of spelling, ie. Emeigh, Ameigh, Aigmey, Aighmy,
Eamigh, .....come from the New York Family.

I, along with everybody else, do not have proof of this. Just a strong hunch.

Contact me if you are still working on the family name.
