Weston, try searching Hans Velton Emich from Dannenfels Germany, Pfalz region, now Bavaria. Dannenfels located NW Mannheim, SW of Darmstadt, West of Worms. Tiny town, look close. Hans Velton's son is Hans Valtin, then his son Johan Nicholas Emigh arrived in America, early 1700s, Dutchess County N.Y. If you are the Weston Eighmy from Tennesee, you are related to him (and me). Hope this helps, Cliff Eighmy.
