"Families Migrating from Lawrence County, Alabama, to other Alabama Counties, Mississippi, and Beyond"

Descendants of George EMERSON and Esther ROBINSON invite families with connections in North Alabama, North Mississippi, and Southern Tennessee, to attend a meeting to learn more about our ancestors.

Saturday, October 28, 2006
1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

ET Sims Jr. Neighborhood Facilities Building (inside)
371 Seventh Avenue SW
Hamilton, Alabama 35570

If you wish, bring a dish or a non-alcoholic drink to add to the event potluck. Bring your Gedcom files, handwritten notes, and verbal stories to share! We will try to have a small flatbed scanner available to scan photographs, so be sure to bring those, too.

We believe that our ancestors, George EM*ERSON (variations include Emerson, Emberson, Emmerson, etc.) and Esther/Easther ROB*SON (variations include Robinson, Roberson, Robertson, etc.), came from Virginia/South Carolina through Tennessee and into Alabama. Various branches or connections of this family also migrated to counties in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.

The Alabama Kennedy connections to this family are:

1. John Robinson Emerson married Nancy Jane Kennedy
2. In 1860, Josiah Kennedy was living in the household of John E. and Rachel Emerson Robinson (Josiah is believed to be the father of Nancy Jane Kennedy)
