This message is posted in hopes that someone has access to a History of Van Buren and Berrien Counties, author and year unknown. Unfortunately the note available to me doesn't include specifics or a direct quote. The general info is: Clark Pennell and his father operated a tavern near Buckthorn and St. Joseph's Rd. and left there in 1834 for IN. This note also mentions David Shearer.
If you have access to this history and can provide the quote and source or could provide any other info related to Clark Pennell and his father, it would be greatly appreciated. If this is my Clark, then his father would likely be Joshua.
Thanks in advance to anyone who might assist. Peggy
