We know our Brumley line came from England, we are still doing research.
The surname Emans/Emmons was researched by my brother DON EMMONS. There are three or four separate
lines in America. Don meticulously traced our father's EMMONS ancestry to John Emans a goldsmith,
from London, ENGLAND. He arrived on the ship "BONNY BESS" that landed at James City, Virginia,
Sept. 12, 1624. In that research Don turned up verified MALE LINEAGE with the GENERAL SOCIETY OF
MAYFLOWER DESCENDANTS with Job Emans marrying Hannah Bonham. To read about Don Emmons's surname
search, go to PEOPLE, at the top of this page then "STORIES" Update On The Mayflower Line.
My Aunt Wilma Emmons-Wagoner made sure I knew about our Hostetler-Mast ancestors buried beside
County Line Brethren church in Historic Mount Zion Cemetery, in LaPaz, In. Samuel and Mary were
Thelma C. Wright-Emmons' maternal grandparents. HOSTETLER/Hochstetler ancestry has been well
researched back to the Amish immigrant from SWITZERLAND who arrived on the ship "CHARMING NANCY", a
and his family being attacked by Indians. Jacob's oldest son John living at his own farm close-by
is my direct genetic line. Read about Jacob Hochstetler in PEOPLE, at the top of this page
then "STORIES" THE HOCHSTETLER MASSACRE and other stories I have included for you including
In 2011 My Maternal Grandmother Rose M. CAKO[Czako]-Traver ancestry can be traced to living
relatives in Hungary of Benjamin and Veronica Czako, son Julius and daughter Helen that came from
HUNGARY to Ellis Island. I have been lucky that Cheryl-Chambers Cako included me in her research
also putting me in touch with a relative in Hungary, who had been researching the ancestors, his
name is Ferenc Horvath, who sent us pictures and documents.
