      m. 1798 or later, Poultney, Vt., Diana Willson. Some of her folks
      stayed in the Poultney-Hampton home; others went north in Vt.
      and Can.

      (possibly 1 or 2 more)
      There is a Wells land deed to John, Jr., from his father, and anothe r from Ralph Bell or Bill (who m, Kesiah, dau. John Reynolds, Sr. of E. W ells.) Later John, Jr. deeded the home land back to Frederick.
      He is said to have gone to Canada with some of the relatives, but re turned. The 1800 Census of Wells seems to count him in his father's famil y. He is always spoken of as residing in Poultney, and probably occupie d the land his father ownedultney; perhaps also that which his uncles' fa milies had left. No deeds remain, but an old grand list names John Pember , Jr. in Poultney in 1815; he had not sold it before removing, and ther e may have been relatives still occupying it. His marriage is known to ha ve been in Poultney, and he had several children before permanent removal , the older ones of similar age to his father's youngest. He removed by w ay of Canada, or removed twice; for he had at some date
      established a home near Ormstown, P. Q. Thence was an easy trip by wate r to Oswego County, where two of his sisters and other friends settled. T radition has it that he settled on the land which his father had taken u p in Lysander (the part which-became Hannibal), died there and was burie d in the old yard near his home. (Lewis Cem.) Widow Diana and her childre n, except Alanson who remained with relatives, made her way back to Ormst own, and her descendants suppose she lived there until death.
      At that time most of them cease to be members of the Pember family.
      Whether a school-teacher misread the name supplied, or whether the chang e was intentional for some reason sufficient at the time, they appear hen ce-forward as Rember, and their children believe it was always thus.
      The daughters may have left records, but their families have not be en
      located in this work, since they are not in this country.
      Concerning the "Rember" sons named above, relatives say all three l ived in Quebec, one near Stanbridge, one at St. Armand Ctr. who had two s ons and removed with them to Vesta, Arkansaw, and Thomas at Magog. The la tter left a son now livingrdun; Verdun has several Rembers.

      In answer to an inquiry concerning the name Rember in Ormstown,
      P. Q., the Protonotaire du district de Beauharnais states that records fi led
      begin with 1832, and "there are traces of records between 1848 and 1856
      under the name Rembers, which records are partly of children of birth to
      Robert and Thomas, and furthermore there is a marriage entry in 1846 of
      Thomas Rembers to Ann Monteith, at the Huntingdon Episcopal Church."
      (Is this bridegroom son, or grandson, of John-5 Pember?)
      N. B. There is no reason to suppose that any kind of records were
      being made in Hannibal (then in Lysander) at the time of John's death.
      Either county has few prior to 1830.
