I am sorry about the mistakes made in the posting above.Please note the corrections in this letter.The Civil War research did not say which side of the war, Theodore fought in.It did say Bevely B. Lineberry was in the confederacy, however.
Both gentlemen 'were' buried in Lipan, Hood Co., Texas. Theodore D. Penn's tombstone stated b.12 Jan 1840 d.18 August 1902. He is buried in the Baptist Cem. in Lipan, Hood Co., Texas.His wife, Frances "Fanny" (-nee-Nix)is buried with him. She was b. 11 Dec. 1868 d.22 Nov 1924 according to her tombstone. Theodore was in the Civil War and according to the Civil War Records..he was born in N C., his father in N.C. and his mother in S.C. . Theodore Penn resided for a time in Ohio and after the war was over in 1865 he came to Texas. He died and is buried here.
Beverly "Bevley" B. Lineberry's tombstone states that he was b.4 Feb 1837 d.4 Jan 1917. He and his wife, Sarah "Sallie" (-nee-Cook) b.7 April 1836 d.10 April 1913 are also buried in Lipan, Hood Co., Texas, but in the Evergreen Cemetery. His Civil War Records state that he fought in the Confederacy.The Census states that He, his wife and their parents were all born in N.C..
I did find a D.P.Penn in the list of Confederate Indigent Families 1863-1865 Johnson County, Texas (researched by Virginia Hale)
