In Response To: Re: Ohio Connections via PA/VA-WV Counties ()
According to the 1880 census, my Emmons ancestors followed a similar migration pattern as your Adams ancestors. Dorcas Emmons was born in W. Virginia, but was living in Marietta, Ohio by the time she married John Fletcher in 1827. She told the census takers that her parents were both born in Pennsylvania. Now, I believe that they probably originated in the Monongalia area.
