A letter, included in a report by researcher; Clarence Herbert Ponds

My dear Doctor Burleigh;

Herewith one line of Smpies. (Empies) It is a big family as you will recognize. Just hov; many progenitors there v^ere in this country I do not Inow,

The Children of Philip Empie and Elizabeth Enslen seem to disappear from the Stone Arabia and Ephratah region. I have an idea that they either went to Canada or to the country opened up after the Revolution whch was taken from the Indians as Jefferson County. There was a great migration from the Mohawk Valley to the County of Jefferson, as well as to other new coun- ties.

I have shown one slender line down to the present as it traces the descent of the Empie Bible down throu£):h the Trumbles and into the hands of the Bazo family. Through this bible I was able to identify my own line in the Empie family. Perhaps you may be able to connect some of the Canadian -^^mpieis with this line of Philip and Elizabeth Enslen.
