Julius Emmons was born about 1812 and died in Franklin Co., Missouri on July 30, 1896. While his parents are unknown, the naming patterns and his New England origins suggest he may have been related to the Benjamin Emmons family of St. Charles Co., Missouri. A book by descendants of his daughter Mary Elizabeth Crews indicates he was orphaned at a young age and made his way alone through his teenage years. He lived in Jefferson and Franklin Co., Missouri.

Julius was married at least four times. Known wifes are Levisey Robinett who may have died in child birth with daughter Lavicia; then Susannah Parker, the widow of John Hildebrand; then Mary who was formally married to a Mr. Cole and finally to Mary Ann Brown who was previously married to Mr. Kelly. The census records indicate he maintained two adjacent households with his children and step children from his wifes' previous marriages.
