Will of George Pemberton, yeoman, Wallesey, 1685

Finished transcribing today. This will is of particular interest because although it does not mention a son George, it does mention a daughter in law Elizabeth making it a tantalizing candidate for the will of our George Pemberton I whose son George married Elizabeth Brooks. However, there is a serious problem because George II and Elizabeth had children in Virginia beginning in 1718, 33 years after this will.

Meeting with Dixie Pemberton

I had the distinct pleasure of spending the afternoon with Dixie, my wonderful collaborator in this research. We finally could talk face to face after all these months of working together. It was so great!!
