    !!!DO NOT USE!!!

    This is a reference that gives numerous relations and seems to be a treasure trove of information. That is until one diagrams the information and realizes that it does not fit. Many of the names are the same, but where Catherine Emmens last name is quite sure via the birth records of the children, she cannot be the Catherine Robeson who happens to mary a Nathaniel Westfall as well. Strangely one of Catherine Robeson's sisters, Rachel happens to marry an Emmons adding further confusion to the mix. In the end though, it is unlikely that this will is referencing our Nathaniel Westfall and Catherine.

    I have not deleted the reference so that this doesn't get confused again in the future.

      I believe that "Daniel" is a mis-transcription of Nathaniel. I will need to see the original record to confirm.
