Elizabeth Emerson1

b. 1783, d. 15 February 1853
Father*Henry Emmerson Sr.2 d. 1807
Birth*1783Elizabeth Emerson was born about 1783 in Virginia. Her father's first wife, Elizabeth's mother, has not been identified. The bequests in the will of Elizabeth (Fitz Garrell) Emmerson, her father's second wife, which did not included any of the Emmerson children, proved to us that she was not the mother of any of Henry Emmerson Sr.'s children.3,4
Name VariationShe was called Betsy.5
Marriage*20 December 1799She married John Wheeler, son of Joel Wheeler and Frances Burnett, on 20 December 1799 in Albemarle County, Virginia.5,6,7
(Daughter) Will14 November 1807Her father prepared his will dated 14 November 1807 in Albemarle County, Virginia, naming his wife, Elizabeth Emmerson, his sons, Zachariah Emmerson, Pleasant Emmerson, Henry Emmerson, William Emmerson and Jesse Emmerson, his daughter, Betsy Wheeler, and a grandson, Henry Emmerson. He appointed his eldest son, Zachariah Emmerson, and Micajah Wheeler his Executors, although we are not sure if he appointed his son-in-law, Micajah Wheeler Jr., the husband of his daughter Mary (Emerson) Wheeler, who was not named in the will, or his close friend and neighbor, Micajah Wheeler, who was his son-in-law's father, and also the grandfather of Henry's daughter Betsy's husband, John Wheeler. In two places in his will, Henry made reference to the monies from the sale of land and property to "be equally divided amongst all my children". We note that in addition to his daughter, Mary (Emerson) Wheeler, his youngest daughter, Judith Emmerson, was also not mentioned by name. His will was witnessed by John Field, Solomon Wood and Cornelius Gillum.2,8
(Wife) Will6 February 1821Her husband prepared his will, which was written with many misspellings, on 6 February 1821 in Barren County, Kentucky, naming his wife, Betsy Wheeler, his older son, William, his daughters, Deliah, Polly and Fanny, his younger son, Micajah, and his son-in-law, Reuben Kinslow, husband of his deceased daughter, Amy.

His wife, during her lifetime, was the primary beneficiary of all of his land and most of his household furniture and stock. Each of his five children, when they came of age or married, was to receive a beast, bridle and saddle, and one good bed. His instructions were clear about wanting each of his five surviving children's total share of his estate, within twelve months after his wife's death, to be made equal in value after the sale of his remaining land, household furniture and stock. He included the direction that "Delilah, Polly and Fanny is to be learnt to read and rite", and that "William and Micajah to be well educated." He gave Reuben Kinslow, widower of his deceased daughter Amy, one horse, a cow and calf, and the bed and furniture that had been Amy's in her lifetime and, at that time, was in Reuben's possession.

He appointed his wife Betsy Wheeler as Executrix, and his son William as Executor to his Estate.

He signed and sealed his name John Wheeler, which was witnessed by his brother, Bond Wheeler, and brothers-in-law, Pleasant Emmerson and Joseph Coleman, husbands of his sisters, Polly and Elizabeth, respectively.9
(Wife) DeathMay 1823Betsy became a widow when John Wheeler died in May 1823 at about age 48.10,11
Marriage Bond*18 April 1826A marriage bond was issued to Samuel Furlong and Reuben Kinslow in Barren County, Kentucky, on 18 April 1826, obligating them to the sum of £50 on the condition of the intended marriage shortly to be solemnized between Samuel Furlong and Betsy Wheeler.1
Marriage18 April 1826The same day their license was issued, she married second, as his second wife, Samuel Furlong, son of Hubbard Furlong and Martha Armstrong, on 18 April 1826 in Barren County, Kentucky.10
(Bride's Mother) Marriage Bond12 December 1827A marriage bond was issued to John Matthews and George W. Matthews in Barren County, Kentucky, on 12 December 1827, the condition of the obligation being the intended marriage between John Matthews and Deliah Wheeler. A marriage license was issued and Delia's mother, Elizabeth Furlong, signed her consent for the marriage of her daughter to Captain John Matthews.12
Census US 1850*20 August 1850Samuel and Elizabeth Furlong were enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 20 August 1850 in Barren County, Kentucky. Samuel was 45 years of age and a farmer, and Elizabeth was 67 years of age. Neither was able to read or write. Enumerated in the next previous household, on the same census page, was the family of Elizabeth's daughter and son-in-law, Deliah and John Matthews, and on the next census page, two households away from Elizabeth and Samuel, was the family of Elizabeth's brother-in-law, Micajah Wheeler, and his wife, Hannah (Furlong) Wheeler.

We find ourselves confused, and wonder about Samuel, who was 22 years younger than Elizabeth. Was he the same Samuel Furlong she married in 1826? Was he a brother of Elizabeth's sister-in law, Hannah Furlong Wheeler, who was enumerated two households away? If so, Samuel was the son of Martha and Hubbard Furlong.

Please... If anyone reading this can lead us to the answers regarding Samuel's identity, please let us know...13
Death*15 February 1853She died on 15 February 1853 in Barren County, Kentucky, at about age 70.11

(Kidnap Victim) Indian Attack1695Hannah was a 40-year-old colonial Massachusetts Puritan mother of nine during King William's War who was taken captive with her newborn daughter Martha during the Raid on Haverhill in 1697. On 15 March 15 1697, Hannah witnessed the brutal killing of her baby and several of her neighbors. Later in her captivity, while detained on an island in the Merrimack River in present-day Boscawen, New Hampshire, she acquired the assistance of two other English captives, her daughter's nurse Mary (Corliss) Neff and 14-year-old Samuel Leonard. Together, they scalped ten of the Indian family members holding them hostage. Duston's captivity narrative became famous more than a hundred years after she died. She was the first woman honored in the United States with a statue.2
