May 23, George Haley andRachel Pennington, by William Matthews, J.P.
We know that Asa Pennington, and 4 sons are living in Lawrence Co., MO:
Simeon b. 1801 - daughter Rachel b. 1833 m Milton Connell
Corbin b. 1805
Peter b. 1811
Timothy b. 1813 - daughter Rachel E. b. 1838 m ?
Wm Carroll b 1816 - daughter Rachel b. 1851 m. John Stakely
They are named in the article
Sarah b. 1797 and Frances b. 1818 are also living in Lawrence County.
Simeon, Timothy & Wm Carroll all have daughters named Rachel Pennington, but would be to young to marry in 1847.
Is it possible that this Rachel is an unknown daughter of Asa Pennington + Rachel Lane?
