I live in Hickory, N.C. My father was born in Buncombe Co. The son of Lewis Penland and descendant of Henry Penland of 1623. His son John Newton Penland moved to Buncombe Co. thus starting the Penland line of NC. My father has a twin named David R. Penland. I have several cousins. I have a sister and in mother in Statesville, N.C. Sonya Trivette Penland and Annette Ballew Penland. My father passed away in Sept. '07. I am just searching to visit our family history.
