I am interested in your Emigh family because my husband has a great-great-great grandmother named Mary Amey, who married Joel Houghton in Putney, Windham, Vermont, and they ended up moving to the region of Maryland, New York.
I looked at the people who were living near or next to the Houghton family in Vermont, and their name was spelled as Emigh, so I think somehow it was anglicized. I am trying to find Mary Emigh/Amey's family, and I haven't had much success in VT or New York. My husband's great-grandmother was named Mary Amey Houghton, after her grandmother's family; she married William H. Sigler in East Clarkson, Monroe, New York. I have traced the Houghton family all of the way back, but Mary Amey's family is one of my brick walls. I am going to try land records next. I suspect that Mary might have been German.

I have found that reading about the name changes in the various immigrant families is very interesting. My husband's family was Dutch and they arrived as Siegelaars and ended up generations later as Siglers.
