Hello Judy,
Thank you for your reply. Before I answered your message I wanted to do some additional research on your suggestions.

The James H. Emens 1844-1928 on p. 7-37 that you located is definitely the person I am interested in. What geographic areas and dates does the "An Emmons Genealogy" book cover?

I checked with Fernwood cemetery and his parents are not buried there because I found out that the cemetery was not organized until 1853 and his parents would have died prior to that, per to the testimony he provided on a Civil War Pension request and that he lived with George & Rebecca McDowell on the 1850 census. I did also check out the possibility that you mentioned about Widow Helena Emmons, but that did not pan out favorably either.

I think I will have a lot of further researching to do in an aim to determine who his parents were.
In 1840 there are 7 Emens in the USA but none in NJ
while there are 89 Emmons in NJ and of those 89 there are only 3 in Middlesex
In 1830 there are 9 Emens in the USA but none in NJ
while there are 58 Emmons in NJ and of those 58 there are only 3 in Middlesex.

If anyone has any suggestions of the best way to do this, it would be appreciated. The "An Emmons Genealogy" book would probably be helpful to possibly reduce the research but I have yet located a library that has the book that will do an interlibrary loan of it with our local library in central PA.

Thank you again for your assistance.
