Pinney/Penney/Penny which is my family?
In my research I have reached a blank going beyond my ggggg grandfather, William Penney, (b.1751)but have been wondering about the Penney spelling. Could it have been changed starting with him and that is why I reach a dead end.On a web site:(http//www.sunflower.org/~kpinney/homepage.html) there is a breakdown of the different spellings and it made me wonder if that is the reason for the brick wall. He settled in NC and that is where my search starts. His father (a William also) was born in 1709 and we were told in Northern Ireland but have no proof.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered.
