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.

I hope you can find your Pennington connection really soon!
