George M. Pemberton of Sedalia, Missouri, 1810 – 1878

With Family Tree Maker one can print a Register Report for anyone in their Family Tree File. The report below was thus generated.

My grandfather, Thomas Mason Pemberton (03 May 1870-19 Apr 1963) was  the son of George M. Pemberton, Sr., and Sarah Ellen Pemberton.  Sarah was the first cousin once removed, of George M. Pemberton, Sr. She was the granddaughter of George Pemberton IV, and he was a brother to Jesse B. Pemberton, George M. Pemberton, Sr.’s father.  He is the one who began in 1834 to write about his life.  Different years, he used different inks, some blue and badly faded, and difficult to read. These folios are bound in leather, called THE SCRAPBOOK. This volume contains the Minutes of the Walnut Baptist Church from its founding. Another section is devoted to GMP’s writings, and in a separate part, those of his son. One can also find things added by my grandparents: pasted obituaries, wedding announcements as well as hand prints of children.  The entries are not sequential. But are interesting for what they do include. One is a section GMP entitled: History of our Relations.  Another is GMP’s memory of his Grandfather George Pemberton III (1718 -1827).

In 1993 I began to research using the web and contacted Daniel Buckley, who had worked with Ernest Pemberton, on the origins of  our Pemberton line.  They, like Jackson Pemberton, descend from Isaiah Pemberton, and we, from George Pemberton, III, his brother.  Both are the sons of George Pemberton, who emigrated to Virginia in 1710. Dan and I  worked daily for three years to verify what THE SCRAPBOOK contained on genealogy.  Dan and Ernie both were in contact with many others, and together, we made discoveries.  We all concluded the History of our Relations section in the THE SCRAPBOOK was accurate for with Dan, nothing could be assumed. He had to have facts. The PFWW is indebted to his widow Dannie Patricia Little Buckley, who has graciously made access to Daniel’s genealogy research available.

Notesfor George M. Pemberton: General Notes:

 

George M. Pemberton, who was the eldest son of Jesse B. and Tabitha Pemberton, was born in Caldwell County KY, March 5, 1810. He was one of the leading stock dealers of his township (Pettis Co. MO), and contributed largely to the development and prosperity of the county. He was also at one time an extensive land owner, having owned in connection with his brother, Dr. Thomas B. Pemberton, nearly 4,000 acres. He died November 10, 1878. He had been a member of the Regular Baptist Church for many years, and was a good neighbor, widely known and respected. (Quoted from page 977 of the “HISTORY OF ELK FORK TOWNSHIP,”1882)

 

He came to Missouri in company with his brother, Dr. Thomas B, in 1836, and was married in 1839 to Miss Melissa M. Pemberton, daughter of Judge Pemberton, by whom he raised a family of eight children. Mrs. Pemberton died in 1859 with typhoid fever, and also near the same time, two of the eldest sons and one daughter died. In 1860 George M. married Miss Sarah E. Pemberton, sister of his first wife, by whom he had four children. (History of Elkfork Township).

 

GMP Sr.’s scrapbook gives birthdays and death dates, lists who married whom, but wedding dates are not always included.

 

In it he writes:

 

My first wife Melissa Mildred, daughter of Jesse and Elizabeth Pemberton had 8 children and 5 sons and names them. He continues

My second wife Sarah Pemberton, a sister to my first wife, had 4 children and 2 sons, and names them.

 

George M.’s first trip to Missouri by horseback was in October 1832 and he selected a location for his homestead before returning by horseback to KY. The following year he returned to Pettis County, driving through from KY with an ox team and wagon. He entered land here from the government at a cost of $1.25 per acre. But it was not until May 7, 1836 that he moved to Pettis County, Mo. He became quite an extensive land owner, about 800 acres. He raised stock extensively and prospered.

 

George M. moved to the farm that he bought of his brother Thomas B., known as the brick house farm on the 28th day of April, 1865.

Notes for Kathleen Mary Wurth: General Notes:

 

From her Obituary:

 

A BELLE IS SILENCED!

 

Kathleen Wurth Pemberton, a Belle of St. Mary’s, died March 26. Her class of 1927 included 15 women who began grade school together, and stayed life-long friends.

 

Born October 23, 1909, she came from KY to AZ with her parents, prior to AZ’s statehood. Her 3 sisters and 2 brothers were born in the Wurth’s home on 4th St. and Roosevelt. Sisters Angela Wurth Ronan and Elizabeth Wurth Scott Garthe, and her brother, Father Mary Philip, OCD, survived her.

 

She married Gordon Taylor Pemberton, and in 1928, the family moved to Tolleson and the Roosevelt Irrigation District. A testimony to our parents’ strong belief in education meant a commute of 20 miles round trip, twice daily, for more than 36 years! With Gordon’s death in 1975, Kathleen initiated a new life in a new home on 12th St., in Phoenix. She truly came to love her neighborhood, and new friends. They had eleven children. Grand-children number 32; great grandchildren, 54; and 5 great-great grandchildren.

Hello Dixie,

 

Boy, this world gets smaller all the time. I was talking to my dad Melvin Poundstone, he was called Buddy as a child. He remembers going to AZ when he was 15 yrs. old with his mother Hazel Dixie (Lively) Poundstone and remembers an Uncle Mason and Aunt Conn. His memory is not that good now, But he remembers maybe an aunt or cousin who was a nun stopping at Sacred Heart in Sedalia. He later found out that she was married and he thought a school administrator. He remembers his gr-grandma Matilda “Carrie” Teague she was born in 1861 and died in 1957 while he was away in Korea. She was the daughter of George and Melissa’s son Thomas Fitzhugh and Sarah( ?) Do you know who Angeline May Daughter of D&L? She is buried near Dixie Elsea and she died May, 1868?

Hello, Rhonda:

 

Isn’t this internet grand! How nice to meet you. The more cousins, the better life seems….Dan is doing a great coordinating…..

 

You must still be in Pettis County. At the library, look in Pettis County History, 1882 and 1919. Those are two volumes we have out here and belong to my older brother, the first born. Both books have a lot of our early history.

 

George M., Sr. married two sisters, Melissa and Sarah, sisters and granddaughters of his Uncle George IVth. The IV was brother to Jesse B. Pemberton (George M. Sr.’s father) and the two, sons of George III (1717-1827). His father George II left Cheshire, England for King Wm parish in 1710. His father was George Pemberton I. (The numbers I use to keep the Georges straight in my mind.)

 

            My grandfather Thomas Mason Pemberton was a son of George M. Sr. and Sarah. Their other son died single in 1889. His two sisters were Dixie and Carrie. Dixie and Thomas married another brother and sister, Emma and Fred Elsea. Emma and her child died in the 3rd year of their marriage.

 

Thomas Mason married my grandmother some years later. His other sister was Matilda C., called Carrie, who married J.H. Teague.

 

My paternal grands followed my father west in the late 1920s. Here in AZ were Constance’s brothers and sisters with families were established by the time they arrived.

 

Some children of George M, SR and George IV moved to Texas, Colorado, Montana, at least those are the places from which my grandparents have newspaper clippings on family relatives they kept in touch with…

 

My best to you….Let me hear from you again…
