One G gs stayed in MS after the Civil War, married, and many ofhis descendants now live there. One gs went to Ontario before 1850 and his descendants now live across Canada in ON, SAS, AL, and BC.One G gdau moved to KS with her family where she married. She and herhusband were missionaries in India and all but one of their ch were born there.
Several distant cousins and I are doing all we can to try to contact all living descendants or anyone with any data about any possible descendants in order to bring the descendants of Joseph 1 PENLY as up-to-date as possible.Our base is the work of the late Rev Robert Irving 6 PENLEY 1909 - 1996. If you or anyone in your family had contact with him, please let me know.
The success of this effort is absolutely dependent on the help ofall of our cousins.No matter what we do, there is no way we will be able to find every cousin without the cooperation and collaboration ofeach and every one of you.
I will be looking forward to hearing from you and am most grateful for any additions, corrections, and help with data and in finding living cousins.
