From "Lawrence County (MO) Histories.



1847
March 25, Alexander Brown and Nancy McGehee, by George T. Toney, J.P.
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?

Rachel Lane Pennington was the daughter of Corbin Pennington, the son of Asa Pennington. She married George Haley on 23 May 1847 in Lawrence County, MO. They came to Texas and settled in Coryell County, TX where George was the second sheriff of the county. She died on 8 Oct 1896 in Greene County MO (I have no proof of this).

I am looking for the graves of John Haley and his wife Nancy Toliver Haley. I have heard that several Tolivers are buried in a cemetery near Mt Vernon but have never learned if John and Nancy are there. John died in 1839/40 and Nancy died about 1850.

My maiden name is Haley and my information says John Haley and his wife Nancy Toliver Haley were in Lawrence County, Missouri and that is where he is buried.

Thank you for that information. Do you know which cemetery they are buried in? I'm hoping to get to Lawrence Co. to do more research. Would also want to visit their grave site.

George is buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Austin, TX. I do not know where Rachel is buried, but one of my internet cousins says she may be in the Old Haley Cemetery in Springfield Missouri. I have no information on John and Nancy's burial place beyond Lawrence Co MO.
