It has been said that Calvin was married 8-9 times – that we know of – and that there are Penix kids all around the county.There is a son, tom Jones, who says he was adopted. He maintains that the hospital certificate issued to new parents at birth, was his birth certificate.Rather, it was the certificate given to new parent in the hospital, with ink prints of the feet.Although there was no name on the certificate Tom adamantly vows that it is his birth certificate and that he is the son of Calvin.Whether or not he is a DNA match, the Penix family accepts him as being a Penix.
