Re: Elsie or Alice Amy/ Emigh/ Ameigh Centre County, Pa

In Reply to: Elsie or Alice Amy/ Emigh/ Ameigh Centre County, Pa by william Laubscher of 358

I have gone through my folders concerning Pennsylvania information and cannot find any information on an Alice or Elsie Emeigh.....any spelling, for this time period. I have 25 year old correspondence from two different family descendants of Christian and Lucinda. Neither make note of an Elsie. They both stated that Christian was married 3 times and might have had 21 children. In all the information I have concerning the Christian Emigh family of Clearfield County there is no indication of any branches or limbs using the spelling Emeigh, past to the present. Some use the pronunciation E My rather than Amy, but Amy is the most commonly used.
The names Alice and Elsie are not associated with Emigh in PA that I noted.
I do have some association of the name in the early 1800's with Eighme and Emeigh, Western New York families, mostly Buffalo. Unfortunately the info I have does not match with Young.
There was another Christian Emigh in Huntingdon County about this time. His will was dated in 1809. As far as I can determine at this time, his descendants use the spelling Emeigh. I don't have an Elsie or Alice in this family.
Regarding the Horner tree, I have not seen it. "Unlinked Child" probably means they couldn't confirm her as a daughter. Lucinda was born about 1821 per the 1880 LDS census of Morris Twp. (Spelled Amigh).
Sorry I couldn't help you. I know how frustrating a stumbling block can be as there is one in our family also.
Your mention of Salamanca, NY suggests New York Emigh descendants, but this definitely is not conclusive.
I haven't worked on Pennsylvania families yet. Still working New York.
If I come up with anything, I will post it. In the meantime if you have any questions, please contact me.
Frank
