    I am just getting starting researching my family history. It appears that group 6 has lots of history in Lamar County. I have been thru Vernon serval times but never looked around. I would like to know if there are anyone on this board who would be willing to show me around sometime. My great great grand father was Jasper Pennington who came from Vernon to North Mississippi.

    Henry, I'm so glad you have found the discussion page here on the PRA website and are using it.  I answered this topic on the website but right now I'm just waiting to hear back from Nancy Markey on who she visited in Vernon.  As in my other message, I thought you should meet Bo Morris (Pennington relative resident of Vernon) and Kay Koonce.  Kay is on my facebook page and I don't have Bo's phone number but I'm hopeing Nancy has it.  Melinda Pennington, Group 6 member

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
