Pemberton Genealogy - Virginia and Tennessee
Welcome to my Pemberton web pages.
My Pemberton lineage begins with Elizabeth Pemberton (1772-1802) who married James Jordan George 1789 in Sullivan Co., TN. She is a child of Col. John Pemberton (1742-1813) and Elizabeth Delaney. They married ca 1764 in Culpeper Co., VA. John's parents are unknown, but he appears to be a brother to George Pemberton (c1744-1804) (of Washington Co., VA and Green Co., KY) and William Pemberton (c1750-1814) of Washington Co., VA.
