    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
