    I have recently found my grandparents' Marriage Certificate. The Justice of the Peace 

    that married them was several miles away from their home. It was 19 DEC 1922  and 

    I am wondering if they drove so far, because the Justice of the Peace may have been 

    a relative. Mr. A.L.Pennington was the one they had marry them in the town of Coal,

    Coal Co., Oklahoma. My Grandfather was born and raised in Dryden, VA. which is a few 

    miles away from Pennington Gap, VA. Maybe the two men were acquainted in Virginia.

    I'd like to know if they were married by a Pennington cousin. My grandad from VA. was

    Olen P. Lucas. 1893 - 1975. I hope Mr Pennington was someone's relative. Please let 

    me know if you were connected. I am a Pennington descendant.

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
