M, b. 5 December 1751, d. 7 September 1829
     Note: Birth order of children is partially uncertain -- this version is derived from the will of Rev. John Price, written in 1822, in which he listed first his sons Daniel, John, William and George, and then his daughters Susannah and Elizabeth. I therefore place Susannah's birth before Elizabeth -- she was probably the firstborn child of the marriage. No date is given for Susannah or George in the Wanger book. Wanger's birth order is clearly not correct, based on the stated dates that he gives. DLB 2008.1

John Emmert Price

M, b. 28 July 1840, d. December 1909
     John Emmert Price was born on 28 July 1840 at Franklin Co., PA. He was the son of Jacob Baker Price and Susannah Emmert. John Emmert Price married Mary Catherine Ordeman, daughter of Capt. Herman D. Ordeman and Catharine Schmaul. John Emmert Price lived on 1 June 1880 at South Market Street, Frederick, Frederick Co., MD, Hardware merchant.1 He died in December 1909 at Frederick, Frederick Co., MD, at age 69 Obituary (Findagrave.com):

Mr. JOHN E. PRICE, a well-known resident of Frederick, where for many years he was engaged in business, died this afternoon at his home, Mont-Riant, along the Northern Central Railway, in the northeastern section of the city, of paralysis of the heart. While Mr. Price, who was a sufferer from chronic hay-fever, had been complaining recently, and yesterday had called in the family physician to treat him, his death was rather sudden.

He was born in Franklin county, Pa., July 28, 1840. He was a son of Jacob Price, who was a native and life-long resident of Franklin county, but his mother, who was Miss Susan Emmert, was a native of Washington county, Md. Mr. Price , who was the youngest of six sons of this couple, was educated at the public schools, at the Academy at Waynesboro, Pa., and at the Pennsylvania Normal School. In 1861 he received a teachers certificate, and the following year taught school near his home, but in 1863 entered the Electrical Institution at Chambersburg, Pa. to study medical electricity, and graduated in 1864. The same year he entered the U.S. Marine Services at Philadelphia, and in the following year, aboard the U.S.S. Ticoaderoga with a fleet under command of Admiral Goldsborough, went on a roving voyage in foreign waters. A series of articles by Mr. Price, describing the voyage, was published in The News last spring.

After returning from the voyage, and receiving his discharge, in 1868, Mr. Price came to Frederick and engaged in the hardware business with B.F. Stewart. In 1882, Mr. Stewart's interest in the business was continued by Messrs. Price and Ordeman, under the firm name of J.E. Price & Co., until February 1906. The firm had a successful career and won an enviable reputation in commerical circles.
