Judith Emmerson1

b. 1792
Father*Henry Emmerson Sr.2 d. 1807
Birth*1792Judith Emmerson was born about 1792 in Virginia. Her father's first wife, Judith'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.3,4,2
Name VariationShe was called Judy.3
(Youngest 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.5,6
Census US 1820*7 August 1820Judith Emmerson was enumerated as the head of her household on the 1820 census taken on 7 August 1820 in Barren County, Kentucky. Her household consisted of 1 Free White Male between the ages of 26 thru 44, 1 Free White Female between the ages of 10 thru 15, 1 Free White Female between the ages of 16 thru 44 and 5 Slaves. Judith would have been the older female. On the 1850 census, taken on 7 September, she was recorded as 58 years of age and on the 1860 census, taken on 30 July, she was recorded as 72 years of age. So, she was probably born between 1788 and 1792, making her age in 1820 somewhere between 28 and 32 years.7
Marriage Bond14 January 1823A marriage bond and license were issued to Reuben Kinslow and John Grayson in Barren County, Kentucky, on 14 January 1823 in the amount of £50, the condition of the obligation being the marriage shortly intended to be solemnized between Reuben Kinslow and Judith Emmerson.8
Marriage*14 January 1823She married, as his second wife, Reuben Kinslow, son of Conrad Kinslow and Rachel Barlow, on 14 January 1823 in Barren County, Kentucky. Judith was an aunt of Reuben's first wife, and they were married by Zacharias Emmerson.1,9
Census US 1850*7 September 1850Judy and Reuben Kinslow were enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 7 September 1850 in Division 1, Barren County, Kentucky. Reuben was 61 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $700, and Judy was 58 years of age. They were enumerated with three sons, all of them who worked on the family farm with their father, and a daughter-in-law in 1850. John M. was single and 24 years of age; Richard H., who had married within the year, was age 21, and his new wife, Juliann, was age 20; and Robert J. was 18 years old. Joel Wheeler and his family were enumerated in the next previous household on the same census page.3
(Mother) Census US 186030 July 1860Judith was enumerated on the 1860 census taken on 30 July 1860 in the household of her son and daughter-in -law, Rhonda Ann and John M. Kinslow, in District 2, Glasgow Post Office, Barren County, Kentucky. She was 72 years of age.10

Father*Henry Emmerson Sr.2 d. 1807
Birth*Mary Emmerson was born in Virginia. Her father's first wife, Mary'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.2,3
Name VariationShe was called Molly.4
Marriage*24 November 1786She married Micajah Wheeler Jr., son of Micajah Wheeler and Sarah Martin, on 24 November 1786 in Albemarle County, Virginia.1,5
(Eldest 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.6,7

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.1,2

John Endicott1

b. 1588, d. 15 March 1655
Birth*1588John Endicott was born in 1588 in Dorchester, Dorset County, England.1
Biographical Info*John Endicott, whose name was also spelled Endecott or Endicot, was a colonial magistrate, soldier, and governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony. He had arrived in New England in 1628 and resided for many years in Salem, Massachusetts before his relocation to Boston where he lived for only a few years near the end of his life. He was one of the original patentees of the Massachusetts grant and acted as Governor until John Winthrop and his large group arrived. Endicott was once chosen Governor while Winthrop lived, and after Winthrop's death was elected chief magistrate for fourteen out of fifteen years. In his religious views, he was bigoted, but no doubt conscientious and sincere. He despised the Quakers and perceived them as a threat to the state religion (Puritanism) and to the community. Several Quakers were hanged while he was Governor, with other penalties pronounced including ears or tongues cut off, public lashings, and bread and water diet jail sentences. He was very popular among his constituents and a zealous defender of civil rights in the Colony.2
(Magistrate) Marriage1660Governor John Endicott performed the marriage ceremony of John Hayden and Hannah Ames in 1660.3
Death*15 March 1655He died on 15 March 1655 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1
