My Ggrandfather Mortimer Penley (married to Anne Lapham) homesteaded in Colorado. His father was Francis Thorpe Penley - his father was Sampson Penley -1791-1838 (married to Katherine Wickey Taylor)- his father was Samson -1765-1832 (married to Lucy Finch) -his father was Samson (married to Mary Towers -1754)
I have a copy of a family tree that states that Francis Thorpe Penley was a vicar in Dursley, Eng, County of Glouchestershire for 23 years and is buried in the Churchyard there.
Any information to help fill in the family tree would be appreciated. I'm also trying to figure out if we are part of the Maine and NC Penley's!!
