Biographical Sketches

William Emerson (1743-1776), the son of Joseph Emerson and Mary (Moody), married Phebe Bliss (1741-1825) in 1766. He attended Harvard College, studied theology, and succeeded his father-in-law in the pulpit of the Concord parish, 1765. Once in Concord, he built the house known as the Old Manse, the homestead where Nathaniel Hawthorne and Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote. He died in 1776 on his way home to Concord from the camp of the Continental army at Fort Ticonderoga. The Emersons had five children: William Emerson (WmE I), Hannah Bliss, Phebe Bliss, Mary Moody (MME), and Rebecca. William Emerson died in 1776, and in 1780 Phebe Bliss married (2nd) the Reverend Ezra Ripley.

William Emerson (WmE I) (1769-1811) was the son of William Emerson and Phebe (Bliss). He was graduated from Harvard College in 1789, and in 1792 became minister of the First Congregational Church at Harvard, Mass. From 1799 until his death, he preached at the First Church (Old Brick) in Boston. WmE I was a member of the Massachusetts Historical Society. He was married to Ruth Haskins (RHE) (1768-1853) of Boston in 1796, and they had eight children: Phebe Ripley, John Clark, William (WmE II), Ralph Waldo (RWE), Edward Bliss (EBE), Robert Bulkeley, Charles Chauncy (CCE), and Mary Caroline.

Mary Moody Emerson (MME) (1774-1863) was the daughter of William Emerson and Phebe (Bliss), and therefore the aunt of Ralph Waldo Emerson and his brothers. She was a frequent correspondent of RWE and his brothers.

William Emerson (WmE II) (1801-1868), the son of William Emerson (WmE I) and Ruth (Haskins), married Susan Woodward Haven (SHE) (1807-1868), the daughter of John Haven and Ann (Woodward), in 1833. He was graduated from Harvard College in 1818, received his A.M. degree from Harvard University in 1821, and studied theology and philosophy at the University of Göttingen, Germany from 1824 to 1825. He was appointed attorney and counsellor in the state of New York, and was named First Judge of the County Courts in the county of Richmond, N.Y. in 1841.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (RWE) (1803-1882) was the son of William Emerson (WmE I) and Ruth (Haskins). The well-known poet, preacher and man of American letters married Ellen Louisa Tucker (d. 1831) in 1829, and Lidian Jackson (LJE) (1802-1892) in 1835. This second marriage produced four children: Waldo, Ellen Tucker (ETE), Edith, and Edward Waldo.

Edward Bliss Emerson (EBE) (1805-1834) was the son of William Emerson (WmE I) and Ruth (Haskins). He was graduated with the Harvard College class of 1824. He began the study of law, but discontinued it due to illness. From 1831 until his death there in 1834, he worked as a merchant in Puerto Rico.

Robert Bulkeley Emerson (1807-1859) was the son of William Emerson (WmE I) and Ruth (Haskins). He was apparently mentally disabled and lived in an asylum most of his life.

He was graduated with the Harvard class of 1828 and received his A.M. and L.L.B. degrees there in 1832. He served as a lawyer in Boston and was engaged to Elizabeth Hoar (1814-1878) at his death in 1836.

William Emerson (WmE III) (1835-1864) was the son of William Emerson (WmE II) and Susan (Haven). He was graduated from Columbia College in 1853 and Harvard Law School in 1856. He was married to Sarah Hopper Gibbons (b. 1835) in 1863. They resided in New York, where he was a member of the bar.
