Troy Pennington/Lorenzo Dowell Pennington/NC-VA
Trying to verify conflicting information on my Pennington/Penington tree.
Troy Pennington, b 1854 or May 1848 VA or NC -- seeking sourced info on birth. Died 23 May 1928 in Marion, Smyth County, VA.
Oddly, I have his wife as Cora E Combs. Everyone else has Nancy (maybe Pope). Cora E was born July 1890 so she is significantly younger than Troy but I have found her on several documents in Ancestry (not family trees). She was born July 1890 in Ashe County, NC and died March 24, 1975 in Smyth County, VA. I am hoping that someone in Smyth County, VA can verify this marriage and if Troy and Cora are the parents of Virginia Pennington who married Robert Franklin Davis. (There are two Virginia Penningtons with the same birth year in the same town).
I have not continued to work on the Combs/Coombs line because I want to first verify that she was indeed Troy Pennington's wife.
I have Troy's parents as Lorenzo Dowell Pennington, b abt 1819 in NC, died 1884, Washington County, Virginia, married to Nancy Pope, b 1816 in NC, died 1880.
I have Lorenzo's parents as Abraham Pennington, b 1775 Ashe County, NC; died Nov 1825, Ashe County, NC and Margaret Peggy Lewis, b 1780, Ashe Co, NC, d Nov 1825, Ashe Co. I would like to find the death certificates for Abraham and Margaret Peggy since they both say Nov 1825 as death dates.
Any info greatly appreciated!
