Jacob Emery of Sussex county New Jersey



This information has bee gathered from what littlw has been sent to me and also searching the interent and various sources.

This line has been given as two ways:

#1) Jonathan Emery b. 23 Nov. 1772 Haverhill, Essex, Mass. d. Jun. 1807; son of James Emery and Mary Watson [son of Jonathan Emery and Mary Woodman son of John and Mary Shatswell] m. int. 7 Dec. 1753 Darcut, Middlesex, Ma. Jersua Barron b. 1 Aug. 1735 Dracut, Middlesex, Ma. dau. of John Barron and Hannah Richarson. Children:
*Jacob Emery b. 11 Oct. 1759 also given as 10 Oct. 1760

David Emery b. 24 Sep. 1754 Darcut, Middlesex, Ma.

NOTE: the arguement for him not being Jonathan's son is that all his children were born in Newbury, Essex, Massachusett's, his descendant's remained in Massachusetts or went into Maine and New Hamphsire. Jonathan was born and died in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts. Can anyone imagine Jonathan and Jershua going to Sussex county New Jersey having a child and totally abandoning him as an infant there?

Jonathan Emery m. Jerhsua Barron - they were connected to Newbury, Haverhill and Darcut before going into Maine to Winthrop and then to Fairfield where Jonathan built the first framed house. His family and descendants were of Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts and went into Maine in and around Kennebec. It is extremely unlikely that they went to New Jersey to have this one son

and also given as his parents were:

O - Unknown Emery
On 15 June 1913 [John A. Biles] took dinner with Hannah Higley, a daughter of Nathan Emery, a cabinetmaker and undertaker, son of Jacob Emery, Silver Lake, Pennsylvania. Being her 87th birthday in company of Nathan Emery and family. She thinks that Irvine Emery of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has the Nathan Emery family Bible and records. Her grandfather, Jacob Emery, lived near Centerville, N.J. Mrs. Higley was in Florida from 1875 to 1902. Tradition as told by Mrs. Higley: three Emery brothers came from England, one of them died on the way. She thinks her grandfather was one of them. He gave the lot at Centerville for a Church - also a mortgage of $1,000 on the James Decker farm, the interest to support the church and to use 100 years.
#2) 1. George Emery birth date unknown. He married Johannah [-?-]

One source states that George was Born in 1734 in New York and Johannah Born in 1738 in New York.

The identity of George and Johannah as the parents of Jacob Emery is based mainly on information found in a hand written copy of Jacob Emery's bible record,furnished by Wilma C. Myrehn; a very interesting note here is that Theresa Marie Emery Armiger spoke to Wilma Meyrhen on 15 Jul 2012 She does not have, nor has she seen a copy of any Emery bible
. Why does someone have to manufacture, give and perpetuate false documentation; and involve another person in the process????? - some of this false information has been gign around for 30+ years now!

George Emery and Johannah had the following child:
+ 2 i. Rev. Jacob Emery b. 11 Oct. 1759 and another gives 10 Oct 1760 d. 21 Apr. 1824 Sussex county New Jersey. aged 64 yrs. 5 mo. 10 days buried Mettler Cemetery Sandyston Twp., Sussex co., NJ.; m. 2 Mar 1778 Elizabeth Ross b. 5 Oct. 1761 [year 1763 has also been given]; d. 5 Apr. 1815 Sussex county New Jersey aged 53 yrs. 5 mo. 10 days buried Mettler Cemetery Sandsyston twp., Sussex county, New Jersey. dau. of David Ross and Experience [-?-]; m 2) Mary "Polly" Rubert who married d 2nd Sussex co., NJ. Timothy Shay. He was a soldier in the American Revolution, Northhampton county Pa. Militia.

Finally on another clue as to where besides LDS / IGI records has surfaced as to where the errorneous connection with him being son of Jonathan Emery (James, Jonathan, John) and Jershua Barron. with additional descendants

Note: Appears there may be some speculation involved in the relationship of generations 4 & 5. John Addison Biles thought this ancestry was correct, perhaps based on it being documented on page 616 of Volume II of Northern Pennsylvania History - this article is on Hon Lewis Emery Jr and someone along the line alterd the list of children as given -
