To my knowledge, all American Bembrys are connected in one way or another to Miles Bembry (1770-1838). I have been researching my own line of descent, and this blog is focused on those individuals, however, I have included any other information that may be interesting or relevant.
Special thanks to Diana Bryan Quinn for her help with Bryan family history and Miles Bembry’s biography.
To Sharon Simpson for her help with Sarah Simpson’s family history.
To Ray Bembry for pointing me in the right direction on several occasions!
To Geneva Cunningham and Sharon Bembry Gay for their tips when I was starting the project.
To Evelyn Bembry and Hiram Bembry for all the wonderful family photos.
And to my dad, Elwyn Bembry, and his brother Lonnie Shelton Bembry for the help with Civil War records and general encouragement!
I am always happy to share my information, and welcome any tips, photos, or leads from other researchers or family members. If you have information or corrections to share, please post a comment! Thanks for stopping by.
