I am continually hitting a brick wall to determine the name of my Pennel great-great-great-grandfather. My great-great-grandmother Eliza (Elizabeth?) Pennel (spelling on marriage certificate) was born between November 17, 1816 (year from Shelby County, MO Old Settler's Register). She was born in Atrim Township, Franklin County, Pennsylvania. The family ended up in Sharpsburg, Washington County, Maryland. I'm unsure if the state line was realigned at some point as Atrim Township, Pennsylvania, is directly across the state line from Washington County, Maryland. Eliza married William Eakle (also from Washington, County, Maryland) in Shelby County, Missouri.From letters to Eliza (living in Shelby County, MO) from her family (living in Sharpsburg, MD), it appear her mother's name was Margaret. Any help would be appreciated.
