It has to be the Massachusetts-area Reverend Ralph Emerson  
(1787-1863), who was sort of a contemporary of Ralph Waldo Emerson  

He has a dozen or so sermons and other religious publications that  
show up in the OhioLink database I have access to, including jems like  

"Faith, the guide and support of the believer. A sermon, delivered at  
Norfolk, September 30, 1829, at the funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth Robbins,  
relict of Rev. Ammi Robbins," by Ralph Emerson, P. Canfield. 1829.

I found several sites on the WWW which mistakenly append his dates to  
Ralph Waldo Emerson, so others, besides the ML, have mixed these two  
chaps up.
