Pembertons of Color; King William Co VA
Posted by: Susan De Martin-Rott (ID *****1202) Date: December 30, 2009 at 09:27:40
  of 2120

I am trying to assist a lady at my mother's Senior Center in tracking her roots; She is of mixed heritage, possibly a combination of Black and Native American and white. She knows little of her background except that her grandmother was known as Kisia Pemberton and her biological grandfather was a white man named James Cummings. Kisia was reportedly was a Native American from the Blue Ridge Mountains.
What I have found thus far on her line does not confirm or deny any of this - if anyone has these folks in their line could you please help me out? This lady is the last of the children in her family.

There are only supposed to be 13 children of Wm and Mary C Pemberton Harris - I have some "unknowns" with married names found on Rootsweb but don't know which girl belongs with which Unknown and the poster of the data has not responded to email.
