Gene - From the La. Genealogical Register (Dec. 1983, p. 371): "Wednesday, July 14, 1880: Married in New Orleans by Rev. Hugh Miller Thompson, on July 7, 1880, at the residence of HENRY LECKIE, Dr. Charles R. Young of Houston, Texas to Miss Maude K. Penny of Rapides Parish, Louisiana." There must be a connection. I am related to the Pennys of Rapides Parish. Please let me know if you have more information about the Pennys. Hope this little piece of information helps.
