I noticed from your postings you are in the Kingsport, TN area. I am doing research on a Penley family from that area also. The family I have located in the 1920 census, District 10, Sullivan County, TN is:
Penley, Fannie28 Head White Female Single TN TN TN Glenn9 SonWhite MaleSingle TN TN TN Ida6 DauWhite Female Single TN TN TN John F2 SonWhite MaleSingle TN TN TN Lee N2/12 Son White MaleSingle TN TN TN
And I know there was a son born in the 1930's by the name of James I believe. Does this family sound familiar to you? Most of the family lives in the Kingsport area. Please let me know either way. Thanks!
