The Great Migration



Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Amerson family name Amerson, or who bore a variation of the surname were Ellis Emerson, his wife Anne, and son Thomas (who was the scion of one of U.S. most distinguished families), settled in Virginia in 1623 from Durham; William Emerson settled in Virginia in 1618 before the "Mayflower".
