William and Van Buren Pennell
Does anyone have any info on William PENNELL b. abt 1788 in Penn. and his son Van Buren PENNELL b.1838 in Ohio. They came to Iowa in the early 1830-40s. Are listed in Iowa in the 1850 census. Need info on them in either Ohio or Penn. As the family story goes, they are descended from one of two brothers who arrived in Penn. in 1700-1701. One brother jumped bond and went south, the other stayed, finished his bond and the descendants eventually came west to Iowa. Thanks.
