Julia Emerson Family Home Page

Updated October 27, 2002

For EMERSON, PEGG, LEGER, PULLEN, COATES and CRAVENS, join me in seeking and sharing information. The EMERSONS and PEGGS are most recently found in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Virginia. Check out the photos below!
The LEGER line is traced back to the French and Indian War in Canada.
The PULLENS are recently found in Louisiana; sure would like more information on the family tree of James David Brian PULLEN,
b. 06/07/1904; his mother and father were James E. PULLEN and Annie COATES.
The CRAVENS family is spread throughout a wide area, originally from Great Britain.
If you're looking for any of these families, write me at my new e-mail address, shown below left.

This home page is dedicated to Aunt Cleo LeVally who is the REAL genealogist in our family. Special thanks are also due to cousins Dr. Marion Emerson and Don Milner who shared their excellent research. (See Don Milner's link below.)
