    Notes 
    • (Among researchers of the 'Irish' Hemphills in North America, general consensus seems to be that the Hemphills originally came from Scotland. They made their way to Ireland (in 1600s?), some settling in Tyrone (possibly 'Castlederg' area) and others in county Antrim. Joseph 'Elwin' Hemphill of Pictou Nova Scotia has done much research on the Antrim branch but says the two branches are connected. According to Elwin, the Castlederg group came to Canada and settled in New Brunswick. No connection has been found yet between the New Brunswick Hemphills and James Hemphill of Artemesia.)
