There are several variations on the name from Eamigh, Emigh, to Emeigh. The name seems to come from Germany and the spelling differences come from clerks who would spell the name phonetically. Even my name Ames could be a derivitive of the same root. Many of the people could not spell so they could not verify the spelling of the name.
There are a lot of Emigh's et al in Pennsylvania between 1800 and 1900. My wife's family moved to Knox, In.
I hope this helps.
