Re: William Penn Alley/9/5/1900-
This is just a stab...but the connection of the names could be more than just honoring William Penn by naming a child after him....
Mary Catherine Penn (allegedly descended from Wm.) married Edward H. Brown in 1861.They had a daughter Caroline Amelia Brown (b. 1862).Edward died that same year.We believe Mary remarried and had 2 more children by a different last name unknown.
Here's the connection...Caroline married Horace Harrison Alley.Your William Penn Alley could be related somehow to this family.Just FYI.If you find a connection, RSVP.Good luck.
