Nelson's History of Fayette Co. p.1118 Biography of Daniel Hamilton Emme Daniel Hamilton Emme was born in Freedom, Beaver County, Pa, April 12, 1846, and is the youngest of four children. He is the son of Andrew Emme, who was born in Hanover, Germany, November 9, 1800, and died in Springhill township, Pa., eighty years later. At the age of fifteen he enlisted in the German army and under Wellington did his part at the famous battle of Waterloo. He came to this country in 1833, and having previously become a millwright, spent the balance of his working days in the machine shops of Pittsburg, Pa. In 1868 he decided to leave that city, so bought what was then the Lewis Hunter farm, where he removed his family and passed the remainder of his life in peace and quietude in this retired and healthful spot. This farm is now owned and managed by his son Daniel. His wife was Anna, daughter of Daniel Cooper, one of the soldiers of the Revolutionary army. She was born in Beaver County, Pa., in 1803. Her mother was also a native of that country, but her people were of German and Irish descent. Of their children, none but Daniel and his brother William, of Haydentown, are living. October 7, 1869, Daniel Emme married Miss Thira, daughter of Samuel and Catherine Huntley, who at that time were living in Monongalia county, W. Va., but formerly lived in Georges township, Fayette County, Pa. The huntleys had originally intended to go to Ohio, but stopping in Connellsville on their way, in consequence of the illness of Mrs. Huntley, decided to make their home in Fayette county. They were probably of English descent. Her mother's family were of German descent and came to this county from Harper's Ferry, W. Va., at an early day. Mr. and Mrs. D.H. Emme have five children: Minnie Ann, Catherine Alice, Samuel David, Mary Elizabeth, and Charles Andrew, all of whom are still at home with their parents. In 1870 a valuable vein of fire-clay was found on the Emme farm, which is fast taking the place of the famous pot clay which was formerly imported from Germany. Mr. Emme ships annually to the Clay Pot Company of Pittsburg, Pa., about eight hundred tons of this clay, which is sold on special contract on account of its superior quality. He also owns and manages a saw mill. He was educated in the common school of Pittsburg, and brings to the county the intelligence and culture which were there instilled into his life. Like his father, he also entered the military service at the age of fifteen. He enlisted July 20, 1861, in Company L, Twenty-Eighth Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. In October, 1862, he was transferred to Company A, One Hundred and Forty-seventh Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, in which he served to the end of the war, and was in many battles, but was never wounded nor was he ever in a hospital. He was discharged in 1864 near Atlanta, Ga., whence he returned to his old home in Freedom, Pa. After coming home he learned ship carpentering, at which he worked until he removed with his father to Springhill township in 1867, where he has ever since resided. In 1868 he joined Gallatin Lodge, I.O.O.F., of Smithfield, Pa. He is also a member of the G.A.R. Jerry Jones Post. He is a staunch Republican, and his party has elected him a justice of the peace, which office he is now filling. With his family he worships in the Springhill Presbyterian church, and lives a consistent Christian life. MISCELLANEOUS: A child named Henrich was listed in this family by Bernard Mayhle, but may be Henry Krummel, who along with his sister Wilmeene, had been taken under the guardianship of Andrew Emme in Beaver County, Pennsylvania in 1839 when their father, Ludwick Krummel died. Bernard's information comes from his Grandmother, who said that she remembers mention of Henry in the family, which Bernard had assumed was William Emme's brother. Beth Krummel ( provided the guardianship information, which will be posted here soon.
