States: Ohio: Harrison
I'm a descendant of David DeWalt who lived between the Hemrys in Harrison County. An interesting tidbit is that in the 1850 U.S. Census, Elizabeth DeWalt (David's wife who was born in VA), was living with a Mary Henry who was 15 at the time. The 1840 U.S. Census showed a 5 year old girl was living with Elizabeth as well so I believe it's the same person. It could be that Mary Henry was incorrectly transcribed or written by the Census worker and she could be a Hemry (Emery). I am having trouble finding David's parents and siblings too and had wondered if George was a sibling. Several of the U.S. Census of David and Elizabeth's child have listed David as being from VA. Others listed him from Ohio. In the 1830 U.S. Census, David was living next to George Hemry but Issac wasn't list in Harrison County. Then in 1840 David and his family moved to Sandusky Twp, Crawford County right next to Issac and Abram Hemry. Seems there is a connection with the Hemry/Emery family.
