I am looking for info about John Penninger who married Rachel Groner in 1827 in Cabarrus. Does anyone know anything about him?
I also have been trying to put together Penninger families, in an effort to identify John's parents; I found in the 1850 census a Phillip Penninger, b. 1810. A Phillip Penninger may have married a Mary Reid (or Reed) on 17 Mar 1838, Cabarrus. Mary Penninger is listed in the 1850 mortality schedule as dying in February.
The 1850 census lists Phillip, 45; Margaret Reed 16 - possibly Mary's child from a previous marriage?; Sarah C Penninger 11; Washington M Penninger 8; Rosanna Penninger 6; William A Penninger 2.
The 1860 census lists Phillip 50; Monroe 15 (Washington M from 1850?) ; and Albert 12 (William A from 1850?)
