DAVID EMMETT (4) son of Abraham Emmett (3) and Mary. In the file mentioned above at the Pratt Library on the Ancient and Honorable Mechanical Company of Baltimore AD 1763 Provincial Charter 6/26/1764m incorporated 1827, we find David Emmett was one of the original organizers. The members of the Mechanical Company organized the rebellion against the rule of Governor Eden and the British Lion, and in this organization, James Cox, David Rusk and David Emmet were
conspicuous members. It afterwards became known as the Whig Club and became a great factor throughout the Revolution. The club held its meetings in secret at the dwelling of David Rusk, Market St. P-25. David Poe was the Chairman of the club. Among its members were, Caleb Hall, Henry Payson, David Geddes, David Rusk, James Calhoun, David Emmit, James Edwards and John Dever.
