Note:  This is posted with the consent of Mary Elizabeth Rushing who belongs to PRA Family Group 4.

I belong to PRA Family Group 4.  I was recently contacted and told I was related to Dabner Pennington, b. ?, place ?, d. ?, place?”.   In researching him, I found census records indicating he was born in 1820 or 1823 in Tennessee.

In checking the PRA Family Group 4 family tree, I found him listed but I’m look for more information. 

If anyone has more information, please add your comments to this topic or contact Mary Elizabeth Rushing.


Additional information from Gene Pennington.
