Descendants of Wm. Marshall Pennington & Ann Angeline Cash


Generation No. 3


      8. Rachel Leona8 Pennington (William Marshall7, William Marshall "Marsh"6, Leroy "Tobe"5, William4, Jacob3, Isaac2, Abraham1) was born 8 Jun 1903 in McKinney, Collin, TX, and died 7 Jan 1996 in Greenville, Hunt, TX. She married Jesse Franklin Smith 14 Jul 1923 in McKinney, Collin, TX, son of Edward Smith and Sarah Morris.

Notes for Rachel Leona Pennington:
When Rachel was three years old, she stubbed her toe on the wooden transom at the front door of their home in McKinney, TX. After several weeks of fighting the severe infection which developed, Rachel's leg was amputated. The procedure was performed by a local doctor on the kitchen table of their home. Her father, Will, had to administer the anesthia. This did not slow her down. She placed her knee in the seat of a child's chair and used it to get around. When she was about 16, another surgery was required to "shorten" her leg to fit a prosthetic device. Again, surgery was performed at home on the kitchen table with her dad giving the anesthetic. Will often told the story of these surgeries, imitating Rachel's breathing as she went under the effects of the anesthesia. It was probably the worst experience he had ever witnessed and it brought tears to the eyes of all those with whom he shared the story.
