Emsley is actually female, a widow in 1850. She was born in Davidson County, NC, in 1829, daughter of Keziah Mize Siner. Emsley's brothers include Lewis M. Mize and Jesse Shepherd Mize. Keziah married Jesse Siner. Emsley remarried 13 August 1862 to John Love. On her marriage certificate she is Emsley Shiflett, which may be the correct surname rather than Shipley, but they seem to be interchangeable to some census takers.
