I believe this is what you want. It is taken from "Portrait and Biographical Record of Lafayette and Saline Counties, Missouri." James A. Emison is the son of Benjamin Emison, a native of Scott Co., Ky. The latter, who was born Nov. 18, 1800 was a son of Ash Emison, a native of Ireland, whose wife was Mary (Mitchell) Emison, a scoth-bred woman. Ash Emison was a soldier in the War of 1812...The mother of our subject (James A. Emison) was Catherine (Briscoe) Emison, and a native of Maryland. She married Benjamin in Kentucky in 1818, and died May6, 1846. After her death the husband again married, in 1848, taking as his second wife Mrs. Bethany Elgin. In the year 1850 Benjamin Emison moved to Missouri, and settled in Lafayette Co, at Wellington, where he resided for 35 years, when his wife died.

He made his home with his son James A., after the death of his wife and until his own death which ossured Nov. 18, 1886. By his first marriage Benjamin Emison was the father of eleven children, three of whom are now living. namely James A.; Martha A. McHatton, and Joseph W. Second wife bore no children......

The subject of thgis sketch (James A. Emison) was born Jan. 15, 1824, in Scott Co., Ky.... on Oct. 2,1851 he married Rheubena S., daughter Lawrence and Mary Triplett, natives of Ky. She was born Sept.2, 1831, in Fleming Co., Ky and was the mother of three children, two of whom are now living, namely Mary Catherine, wife of Charles Ragland and Fannie R., wife of James Bumgarner, having six children. His first wife died on Jan.3,1860, and James A. married again April 11, 1861, the bride being Miss Anna Mary, daughter of Dr. O.H.P. and Mary (Van Camp) Stone.

Will send more later. Ed
