I know all this was posted quite some time ago but I am hoping that you are still monitoring this message board. I actually located you in the family tree that your grandmother, Sadie Trowbridge (This is the way my mother had spelled her maiden name) passed down to my mother, Jeanette Penney Greising.
Of all the branches of my family tree, the Palen benach is the weakest. I would be eager to share information with you. My grandmother was Adelaide Palen. She married Decatur Butterworth Penney.
