Renee: In your email you said you were related to both the Pannell/Pennell and the Jett families.
Was your Jett family in Stafford and Rappahannock counties in VA in the late 1600's? Did one of your Jett's marry a Calvert?
I'm related to John Pannell (variant spellings) who originally came to Accomack Co., VA in 1646. He had a brother named Thomas who moved to Sommerset Co., VA a few years later.Both brothers had large families and had connections to Jett family.
My 5th great-grandfather was Richard Pennll and he had a brother named Thomas. Around 1750 they bought land in Granville Co. Granville later split and their land became part of Bute and then Franklin Co.
One of the Jett's also lived in Bute Co. around this time. Some of the Pennell's and others moved to TN and Kentucky in 1800's.
