Who is this Penelope Hargas / Hargis / Hargus ??? Could she actually be the mother of my Thomas Hargis/Hargas, ?? I have been under the impression that he was the son of William Hargis and Rachel Meece. Perhaps we have Thomas connected to wrong parents. ?? This Penelope is old enough to be his mother, and note the daughter named Penelope?
