    Notes 
    Married:
    • William Emory VanHook, youngest child of Samuel VanHook [1007] and Isabella Cox was born September 1841 in Pulaski County, Kentucky, according to information in the 1900 Kentucky census. He was known as "Emory".

      William married first Jane Baugh 10 February 1862 in Pulaski County [marriage bonds, book 1, page 185]. The surety was Att. H. Richardson and the witnesses were Elizabeth Baugh, Mahala and A.H. Richardson. The clerk noted on the bond "bride is of age". William and Jane are mentioned in the settlement of his father's estate in 1873 [Pulaski Co., Ky. Deeds, volume 27, page 296]. William received a number of lots from this settlement.

      By 1880 William's first wife had died, and he married second Martha J. Vaught on 17 October 1880, also in Pulaski County [marriage bonds, book 15, page 8]. This was the second marriage for both of them. They were married by John Todd at William's home. The surety was J.N. Minton, and the witnesses were J.N. Minton and M.A. Minton. The bond had been purchased 4 days earlier. (On this marriage bond it shows both of William's parents as being born in Virginia)

      William died sometime after 1910 as he appears in the census for that year. His daughter Artimace (Artie) and her daughter were living with him and his wife at that time.

      (William Emory, his brothers and sisters, and family are discussed in "The VanHook and Allied Families", Keister, on pages 84-85. She does not give the source of her notes on William Emory, but it is believed she obtained her information from one of his granddaughters.)
