“There were no other Pemberton’s listed in Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine and
New York to complete the twelve states in the Union at that time. But here
is listed thirty-eight distinct Pemberton families. But note the variety of
Pemberton’s: in South Carolina there is the Quaker group in Newberry County
and other groups in the other county listed; in North Carolina, there is the
French or deJarnet line and then other groups; in Virginia, the Huguenot,
the Quaker, and families from either group.” I. Irl Pemberton from Annals of
Newberry, S.C.
