What Pennington Groups are in what County and States

I've often ran into "other" Pennington's that I suspect are members of a PRA Group (other than my own) but didn't know what group they belonged too. I've also noticed that many of our Pennington's stayed in the same area so if I found a Pennington in lets say, Lamar Co., AL, for example, I'm fairly sure this Pennington family belongs to Group 6.

I'd like to start a state and county list for all Pennington groups. I'm not sure exactly how to do this but its an old idea of mine. I imagine it on the PRA website somewhere in the future but haven't spoken of this idea with anyone. I don't imagine this list to any individual first names, just county with state and a PRA group claiming they have Pennington's living there.

For example, I can tell you that group 6 can claim having Pennington's in these counties and states below. Please take note, that we are not claiming all the Pennington's who lived in these counties. I'm sure other Pennington groups lived in the same area's.


Fayette, Jefferson, Lamar, Marion & Sanford Co's


Ashley, Bradley, Clark, Cleburne, Crittenden, Cross, Crossett, Drew, Garland, Independence, Lawrence, Lonoke, Mississippi, St. Francis, Sevier Co's

Alcorn, Calhoun, Chickasaw, Itawamba, Lafayette, Lee, Lowndes, Monroe, Panola, Pontotoc, Tallahatchie, Tishomingo, Zalobusha Co's.

North Carolina:
