Emersons in Maine

Tim Emerson of Brunswick renovates houses and runs a bed-and-breakfast in Stonington with wife Kathy during the summer months. But his real claim to fame is his illustrious ancestor, Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Like his great-great-grandfather, this father of three married daughters and grandfather of two boys and a girl cherishes his family, which includes his father, Edward, in Camden, and 35 first cousins, two of whom live in Maine.

"As for my cousins, we're a classic clan," said Emerson. "We're really bonded. But not a one of us is really mainstream. All of us are swimming upstream."

"My fear," said Tim Emerson, "is that people will think I am an authority on Emerson. And I'm not." [Link]
