I am looking for infomation on the family of Allen Emerson (born in White Co. Illinois in 1847 to William Ezra Emerson & Mary Ann Pyle) and Clara Gollihur (born in Tennessee in 1854). They were married in 1876 and had 8 living children, Clarence, Clinton, William (Arthur), Otis Andrew, Donal Alval, Martin Roy, Bertha and Mary Ethel. Between 1882 and 1885 they migrated to Lincoln Co. Washington, because after the birth of William, all the children were born in Washington.

In addition, I am looking for any information on Andreas Wagner (born 1847 in Teplitz, Russia) and Katherine Kallenberger(born 1863 near Odessa, South Russia). Katherine was his second (or third?) wife. His first wife died after the first 5 children were born and he married Kathine & had another 8 children.

Take some time to look at the geneology reports below and let me know if you have new or conflicting information. Thank You.
