Welcome Mike! I hope you can connect soon with cousins. Good Luck!
I am interested in the Pennington family from Mississippi, Alabama and Oklahoma. I do have some info to share specifically in Oklahoma. I think the name "Willie" may be William Franklin or Francis Pennington and the name of Jackson (maiden name) is Nancy Ann Jackson born about 1820 again both in Alabama. My direct e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks
My name is Mike Pennington and i am trying to locate more info on my great grandfather whose name is Alonzo Charles (A.C.) Pennington born 1854 in Mississippi. Alonzo was a Baptist Minister in Van Zandt, Texas and moved into the Indian Territory (Oklahoma) where he died in 1936 and buried in Crow Cemetery Ringling, Ok. He was married to Susan F. Cross-Fowler-Pennington born 1861 in LA and died in 1930 and buried in Muskokee, Oklahoma. Alonzo's parents listed were "Willie" and "Jackson" born in Alabama. I need to be able to make that connection. In 1850 I found an F. Pennington with Nancy Jackson with a son "Thomas". Alonzo had brothers Thomas Sidney Pennington 1849/1850 and Benjamin Franklin Pennington 1856 both in Mississippi. "Willie" and brother(s) fought in the Civil War? Any Help?
Graves PENNINGTON died around 1853 in Nashville Tn. He owned the land that OLE OPRYLAND stood on. There is a bend in the Cumberland river that was called PENNINGTON bend. His mother was probably a GRAVES also... so he married a distant cousin.
I have also been in touch with probable cousins. They changed their name to PENDLETON, among others.
looking for descendants of Graves PENNINGTON and either of his wives' Franky GRAVES and Martha BONDURANT. He was born in 1783. He Died in Nashville, Tn. Had 3 sons by his first marraige, John Winfield P., James T. P., and William P. He had a number of children by Martha, whom he married in 1823 i think. John and James Married cousins, John marrying Elizabeth DODSON and James marrying Margeret Ann SAMPLE (her mom was a dodson). Graves and James died within a year of each other, around 1854.
It would help if you could tell us where Graves was at & what time period. Hopefully, you can find their descendants.
Pam in IN.
I hope you can find your Pennington connection really soon!
