Carol,
The story goes that two Emily brothers had a business falling out and one, John W. changed his Emily name to Emery. He was the son of James Emily and Emily Hurst.
John W. Emery (Emily) was born 10/1850 Harrison Co., Ind. died 11/28/1918 New Albany, Floyd Co., Ind. Buried Cedar Hill Cemetery, Harrison Co., Ind. Children born to John and Emily were:
Harvey Lee Emery b. 9/6/1871 d. 1/3/1947
Benny H. Emily b. 7/18/1876 d. 10/14,1876 bured Cedar Hill Cemetery, Harrison Co., Ind.
I hope this clears up some of the confusion with the different names of Emily,Emery
Bev
