News in NZ is telling about a John Penn. when my son started searching your writing came up. Arthur Penn is my grandfather, and Charles my granduncle. Arthur married Salu Magele from Iva, Savaii & Leauvaa Upolu. They have 3 children, Henry married Viva Schuster,Maryann married a doctor Anesi Malaefou & Archie Penn married Peleise Schwenke of Apia and Leulusoo of Saleaumua, Aleipata. Arthur was a carpenter and he built the church in Fusi Savaii hwhen he died in 1923His brother Charles then married Salu and they have 3 other children, Lucy married Fred Atiga of Apia, Philip married Tasilua faleafaga of Lepea and Charles had a son from a woman of Mataafa family in Aleipata, and he had a son named Faasino married to faasoosoo, a taupou of Mulifanua.Iam also named Effie Lucy, I met them in the 60s when they came to Samoa. My dad said one lived in fiji and the other lived in Christchurch.The Penns in Samoa have been discussing a reunion of all Penns in Samoa as we have all come from the one man who went to Samoa as an accountant.His first wife Mele is from Leulumoega, the family of Sooaemalelagi, the high chief.Auntie Maryann Anesi had just died last year at the age of 95 years.Her son Alo Anesi is the CEO of the PagoPago territorial hospital.It would be grat if we can all get together and start putting our family history & connections in record. If you search a little bit more you will see that the Penn that came from England was a "Lord" as the English history says. The people who came from England inthe 1840- were settlers to anew land.I have alwayd been proud of my roots as a Penn because they are one of the few europeans who settled in Savaii. Look forward to your response. As for me, I have a big family 9 children, 2 girls live in America and all the 7 boys live here in Auckland.I am a retired school teacher, and I &my husband work from home. Love to hear from you soon. my regards to you & family. Tofa soifua.
