Looking for info on the following:

J.J. Dove (Joseph J.?) listed in the 1870 Estil census as age 23, born in Virginia, works in Coaling. Living with other men who are miners.

Phebe Emmett/Emmitt and children James, Martha J., Mary E. (Lizzie?) Harriett, Nelson, John and Nancy in the same census record.

Am 99% certain that the John Emmett/itt listed as child of Phebe, who is age 10 here, is my great-grandfather, John Emmett who married Sallie Yeager and died in Madison County, KY about 1888.

Am als0 99% certain that Mary E., his sister, is the Lizzie Dove who married (among others) J.J. Dove, whose first name was Joseph, and had three children by him, Martha J., George A., and Lillie B. and is living in Fayette County, Indiana, in the 1880 census.

Also living with Phebe and family in 1870 is Sarah Wyatt, age 73, whom I believe to be Phebe's mother.

Have a connection of the Dove's to the Emmett's from a newspaper article in which a George Dove is trying to contact his Emmett cousins, George and John, and their three sisters. These are my grandmother's siblings, and I am just sure I am on the right track here.

Any help appreciated.
