My name is Darlene Lenning Odom. My grandfather was James Louis Lenning, the youngest son of Taylor Lenning. I also heard the story of Taylor ( and a brother that died on a ship)coming to America. I have posted a Lenning Family Tree on Anchestry.com and have filled in as much information that I could. Hopefully you and anyone else that is related to Taylor Lenning can fill in more information. Maybe one day we will know more. I did hear from my grandmother when I was a child that my grandfather's brothers and sisters had scattered from Alabama, Ga, Cal. and northward to Washington State. One of my dad's brothers had done some research and found that pretty much anyone in America of Lenning decent is related to Taylor Lenning.
