Looking for the parents of  Clara Jane Emerson, my g-g-grandmother, born about 1845 most likely in the New York area.  She later married Origen Abbey Wilcox, who left New York in 1856, as a sixteen-year-old, to settle on the Tule River in California and begin ranching.  William Emerson, R.W.'s brother, would fit the time and location, but I can't confirm this without more information.  Family lore always spoke of a relation to the author, but the history/documents I have tend to follow my grandfather's patriarchal side.  Ask me most anything about the Putnam side...back to 1627!
