    Looking through Pennington Pedigrees, Vol.12#2 1980, I ran across a letter from my 1st cousin 1X removed, William Edward Pennington. We shared great grandparents, Philip Pennington and Sarah Frances Lee Pennington. William Edward has since passed away and I never knew him. In his letter he states Philip was born in Sedalia, MO. and that his father was also named Philip and was from England. All the research I have found points to Philip being the son of Simeon Pennington and Nancy McGehee of Lawrence Co.,MO. I have not looked through all the PRA documents - I haven't been a member that long and I am wondering if any one can point me in the right direction. My mother was Kathryn Faye Pennington, daughter of Philip's son, Ernest James Pennington. Thanks a lot.

    Hello LouAnn, we are in the same Family Group 4, I'm not 100% sure what your question/s are.  Many of the family were born in Lawrence County, MO (you can check their Genealogy Society) and then removed to Texas and other states, mine to OR.  Simeon was the son of Asa & Rachel Lane Pennington.  In some old genealogy notes the writers wrote that they came from England, I believe that they where referring to that the family was of English decent but the way it was written very misleading.  If you would like to email direct at maryerushing@yahoo.com I'll be happy to share what I have.

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
