In 1830 the Franklin Co Census lists Matthew EMERY. He is listed as buying land in Franklin Co. in 1840 located at SESE 34-twp.42-N Range 3-W and NWSE 34-42N-3W. I am not sure in which part of the county that is. I would like to know something about this Matthew EMERY and the family he is connected with. In 1848 Elisha BLANKENSHIP bought land in Franklin Co. located SENE 19-43N-1E. I am hoping that some one knows information that may connect Elisha with Matthew in some way. In 1859 George M. Emery bought land in Franklin Co. located SESE 32-44N-3W. Does anyone know anything about these pieces of land and who might have owned them over the years. Does anyone know anything that might connect all three men?
