When I get comments on a post on facebook, I receive an email notifying me about the comment from whoever commented.  I also get a email if someone else comments on a post I have commented on.   Is there a way to stop the emails.

Using a computer, click on the drop-down arrow at the top right, and choose settings. In the left column of settings, choose Notifications. You should now see an option for Email – click Edit at the right of Email. Yours is probably set to “All notifications”, change that to either “Important notifications” or “Only notifications about your account”

Let us know if this helps.
