    I have a "copy" of an 1860 Fayette (Lamar, Sanford) County census showing the following:

    Andrew Pennington 60 GA

    Elizabeth 52 GA

    James/Joseph 15 GA

    To which group do these three belong? He is living amongst a bunch of Group 6 Penningtons that really had no ties to GA other than having traveled through on their way to Alabama. My census information may be incorrect, but if not, this is worth researching.

    I have been chasing this Andrew Pennington and his wife Elizabeth for years and have not found any info on their ancestors.

    The are in the 1850 census in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama with six children.  One of them, Andrew Jackson Pennington was born about 1831 and died 1864 in Cassville, GA., while serving in the Civil War. He is my gg grandfather. 

    As you know by the time of the 1860 census Andrew and Elizabeth are living in Fayette Co with one son.  Elizabeth died sometime after1860 and 1866 when there was a State census of Alabama.  In this State census of 1866 Andrew is a 60 to 70 year old male who is living alone.  This census states that one member of this family was a soldier who died of sickness, so this must be the same Andrew in the 1850 and 1860 census.

    Things get a little complicated because in the 1850 census of Tuscaloosa Co. there is another Andrew Pennington who was born about 1796 in Georgia and his wife Susan also born in GA.

    An Andrew Pennington if found in Tuscaloosa Co in the census of 1830 and 1840 and could be either of the Andrews.

    An Andrew Pennington bought land in Tuscaloosa and Fayette counties beginning about 1834 and could be either one.  Some of the land he bought was as the assignee of Adam and Able Pennington Poole who were daughters of Adam Poole and Elizabeth Pennington who was a daughter of Abel Pennington who died in Alabama in 1819. Makes me wonder if they are connected???

    Can anyone help with these Penningtons.

    This is very interesting to me.  My g. grandfather was Andrew Jackson Pennington.  His father was John C Pennington.  My family account concerning Andrew Jackson Pennington is that his father John C and wife Patience Dalton had 5 children.  The second of which was Andrew Jackson Pennington.  This family settled in and around Lee County, Virginia.  Pennington Gap.   At 17 years of age (1879) Andrew Jackson married Rebecca Daugherty. He also made his home close to Pennington Gap.  They had 12 children one of which was my grandfather, Jasper Clinton Pennington.  They eventually settled in oklahoma territory sometime around 1898.  Andrew Jackson and Rebecca left the praries of oklahoma and eventurally homesteaded 160 acres in the mountains of Madison County, Arkansas.  Sometime later they once again relocated in oklahoma, near wallville.  Andrew Jacson died of pneumonia (novermber 1921).  He was 59.  Could this be yet another Andrew Jackson in our family????  The Name Andrew Jackson is very popular amoung our kin. hehehe, I have 2 nephews who share that name also.

    The JFMF (John French Master File) shows one John C. Pennington, b. 20 Aug 1840, m. 24 Nov 1859, d. 21 Jul 1915, sp. Patience Dalton, b. 10 Dec 1834, d. 15 May 1910.  There are five (5) children listed for them including one Andrew Jackson Pennington, b. 24 Apr 1862, m. 5 Dec 1897, d. 28 Nov 1921, sp. Rebecca Daugherty, b. 23 Nov 1863, d. 25 Mar 1926.

    This family belongs to PRA Family Group 7.

    Let me know if you want more information.

    How blessed we are to have such a rich family heritage.  Although I did not know my g. grandfather Andrew J. Pennington, I was allowed many years with my grandfather, Jasper Clinton Pennington and he was a story teller!  My father, Ardell C. Pennington is also still alive (age 87)  and during a large period of his growing up years, lived with Andrew J. Pennington.    Yes, I would love to "fill" in some of the  blanks in our family history. 

     

The three words on the scroll of the Coats of Arms are "Vincit amor patriae"

"Vincit amor patriae" means "The love of my country prevails" or "Love of Country Conquers" which is the United States Army 28th Infantry Regiment's motto.   "Vincent amor patriae laudumque immensa cupido" means "The love of my country exceeds everything."

The following motto appears in English above the mountain cat of the original Baron Muncaster Crest.  "Firm, Vigilant, Active" -Virg. AEn. vi. 823 v. Muncaster b. Pennington
