My name is Michael Wayman Penley of Pleasant Ridge, Mich. My gr. gr. grandfather was Marvel Penley born in 1815 in North Carolinaand died in Blue Ridge Georgia in 1901 my family has been in Georgia since. I have more info on my family I am willing to share and I am curious as to the Michael W. Penley that posted this. What is your middle name? My fathers middle name is also Wayman and he was born in 1929. It was always said he was named after a distant relative possibly a Penley.
