This is my Legacy for my children and future generations of Clan Pennington. I want to put names with the pictures and snap shots of personality with the names. We have lost generations of who we are because no one wrote anything down about our ancestors. I have many pictures of people I know are family but everyone who knew them is gone... I do not want anyone else forgotten whose life is worth remembering for the impact they had on my parents, and therefore on the person I have become. These pictures are snap-shots of what each person looked like. I hope to leave a Legacy of who we are, not just what we looked like. I have stories my parents, my grandparents, and my great-granparents. I would like you to get to know them too. My father's family told me a long time ago that the Pennington's came to the United States from England in the late 1600s (about 1684) on one of the voyages of William Penn. I was told that the Pennington branch I decended from was some minor titled family that could be traced in England through the book of Heraldry. I have no proof but I would like to find the truth for myself. I was also told that that the Pennington's came to the New World to escape debtor's prison and that we had our fair share of horse-thieves and scoundrels but there wasalso a proud military history throughout the centuries. So much for the family myths, I guess the truth is somewhere in-between. My Grandfather was Harry Hayes Pennington Sr. (1883-1971) who lived and died in Chester PA but was born in Chester county PA. He married Sarah Oglesby (1887-1974) whose father Phillip (1853-1932) was a gravestone cutter in Chester PA married to Elizabet V???? (1853-1919). My Mother's grandfather was Isaac Orr (1849-1949) who is believed to have been born in Scotland and he was married to Annie M. Morrow (1849-1946) who was born in County Cork Ireland. My maternal Grandfather was Jacob Hallman (1860-1940) who was a fireman in Cheater PA married to Barbara Davis (1864-1932) It is not much, but it is a place to begin our jouney. Any and all help is welcomed and appreciated A great part of this gift is the journey we take to get there... Come along with me as we go in search of Clan Pennington and I hope it is a jouney of discovery... for all of us...
