1. I seek information on the ancestry of Esther Harvell, wife of Peter Emerson b 24 Dec 1758 d 16 Feb 1843. She and Peter lived in Derryfield (now Manchester), NH. Peter descended from the "Haverhill Emerson" family.
2. Does the surname "Harvell" have any historical connection to "Harvey?" I ask this because the first child of Peter and Esther was named "Esther Harvey Emerson." Also, another child, Hannah Emerson, and her husband, Jacob Brown, probably lived in the "Harvey District," of North Londonderry, NH, on or near the location of the present Manchester Airport. Jacob is reported to have established the first textile manufacturing business of the Manchester area in the Harvey District.
