I recently learned that I am a descendant of Penelope Rentfrow, daughter of Jacob Rentfrow and Priscilla, last name unknown.
The only information that I currently have is that Penelope Rentfrow was b. abt. 1774 in North Carolina and d. abt. 1830 in Georgia.Penelope m. Cader Roundtree had a daughter named Celia Roundtree.
Celia Roundtree was born abt. 1802 in North Carolina and died August 22, 1862 in Blount County, Alabama.
Celia m. Elijah Hanes, and census records show that she and Elijah were property owners and slave holders in Blount County in 1850.
Celia and Elijah had at least one son, Joshua Andrew Jackson Hanes, who was a Confederate soldier during the Civil War.Joshua had at least one daughter named Josephine who m. into the Self family in Bount County, Ala.
The above information is all that I have, so if anyone has any information that they would like to share regarding this family and their history, I would really appreciate it.Also, I would be more than happy to share anything that I might have. Thanks ~ Judy
