Hi List, it seems that I find a lot of the Penningtons' on records where I find the Copes' and related families.
The Copes' are found 1768 and 1772 Rowan CO NC tax lists. They are on a 1774 Surry CO NC tax list, 1782 Motgmoery CO VA tax list, 1810 Knox CO KY census , 1819 Harlan CO KY tax list, 1810-1820 Clay CO KY census, 1810-1820 Floyd CO KY census, 1830 Perry CO KY census and last 1840- on in Breahitt CO KY.
Iam interested in Vinson Jones marr. Elizabeth Cope and they are found by Micajah Pennington in Wilkes CO NC 1780s and are neighbors of Micajah Pennington 16th Dist Wilkes CO NC 1790. In this dist I believe I found Hannah Boone & Richard Pennington . The Copes' are on the 1772 Rowan CO NC William Sharp list where Ephriam Pennington and sons Richard and Timothy are listed. Timothy Pennington is on the 1774 Surry CO NC tax list of Benjamin Cleveland where 3 of the 1768-1772 Rowan Co NC Copes' are found.
Benjamin Cleveland is on the 1768 Rowan CO NC tax list of Gideon Wright ( also found Surry ) and Vinson Jones is on this list. I believe Vinson Jones is a brother of Rachel Jones who marr. Micajah Pennington. Vinson Jones brother is William Jones who died ca 1822 Clay CO KY and his wife was Cynthia ( Williams ?). I believe Cynthia Williams Jones is the one who marr. Micajah Pennington JR on 25 July 1822 in Clay CO KY.
I am trying also to indentfy the Penningtons living next to Andrew Cope 1810 Knox CO KY and then these Penningtons' are found on the 1819 Harlan CO KY tax list near another Cope.
I have more records to exchange involving all these people.
David C. Cope
PS- the 1768 Rowan CO NC tax list has 3 Copes' and a lot of the Boone related families listed with them.
