Comments:
came to Canada with his parents in 1852 on the same sailing vessel as his future wife's people (the Elcomes). Had 2 sisters: Elizabeth and Mary Ann (m. George Dukes) they came to Canada in 1888 to Unionville (daughter: Jenny (m. James Pickering))
married a second time after the death of his first wife… possibly to a Mrs McFarlane buried at Merna Alberta, died while living with his son Robert
reportedly related to Ralph Waldo Emerson, the writer however I can find no link between Ralph Waldo Emerson (Lincolnshire England) and Melch Emmerson (Yorkshire England)
The Emerson's came to England from Denmark about the time of Alfred the Great, during the Danish Invasion. The name EMMERSON originally meant Emery's Son. Melch changed the spelling of his last name from EMMERSON to EMERSON
land grant from the government
