    Grave and Military Record for AJM

    Pennington Located - Finally!
    After all these years of searching to

    locate the grave of my ancestor, Andrew

    Jackson Monroe Pennington, b. 30 Oct 1824,

    m. abt. 1846, d. either 11 Feb 1863 or 20

    Feb 1863, I'm pretty sure I have now

    succeeded! Yea!

    After all these years of searching to

    locate the grave of my ancestor, Andrew

    Jackson Monroe Pennington, b. 30 Oct 1824,

    m. abt. 1846, d. either 11 Feb 1863 or 20

    Feb 1863, I'm pretty sure I have now

    succeeded! Yea!

    Based on my previous information, I

    believed he died in the Civil War and his

    date of death was 11 Feb 1863 and that he

    died near Winchester, Franklin Co., TN. I

    did have another date of death of 20 Feb,

    1863, in Tullahoma, Coffee Co., TN. but I

    was never able to find any information to

    support that either.

    I've searched all types of records on the

    Internet, been in contact with hundreds of

    other Pennington and Civil War researchers

    but no luck. I spent a few hours in the

    Tennessee State Archives in 2002 but no

    luck. I did find some interesting

    information about Civil War records there

    but nothing specific to help my research.

    Recently I joined <u>www.Footnote.com</u> and

    starting searching the Confederate

    Soldier's records they have on file from

    the National Archives, records for Civil

    War Soldiers. After many hours of searching

    many variants of his name, I found

    information on his wife, Roseda Pennington.

    Go figure!

    I found a record for her in the Southern

    Claims District where she claimed the US

    Government owed her $750.00! She said

    General Sherman's Army was to blame for the

    loss. She claimed they took several hundred

    bushels of apples, many barrels of fence

    nails and a couple of misc. items. On the

    document she lists several of her children

    (so that helps support my research) and the

    name of one of her son-in-laws that I had

    been looking for evidence to support his

    marriage to her daughter for some time, and

    address information, etc.. Yea! I printed

    the information and saved a copy to my hard

    disk drive to use later with my genealogy

    software database.

    I kept looking for my gr-gr-grandfather on

    <u>www.Footnote.com</u> and after many more hours,

    I was able to find one A.J.M. Pennington

    (note initials) who was 38 in 1862 when he

    joined (which would make his date of birth

    as 1824). He joined in Alabama and the

    location and date matched some other

    information I had found before. On this

    record, it shows he died Feb 20, 1863 in

    Tullahoma, TN. (which matched the 2nd date

    and location of his death). The record was

    from the National Archives, records for

    Civil War Soldiers, Compiled Service

    Records of Confederate Soldiers Who Served

    in Organizations from the State of Alabama,

    Publisher: NARA; Military Unit: Eighteenth

    Battalion, Volunteers.

    Not only did I find the Civil War record

    for him, I was able to print a copy of it

    and to download it to use in my genealogy

    software program! Everything on the record

    matched my gr-gr-grandfather, Andrew

    Jackson Monroe Pennington, b. 30 Oct 1824.

    Yea! I found him! I was very, very pleased,

    but now the question was, where is his

    gravesite?

    I started searching other websites and I

    found a possible match on the Tennessee and

    Civil War TNGenWeb.org listing for

    Confederate Virtual Cemetery, Tombstones.

    On the first website at -->

    <u>http://www.tngenweb.org/civilwar/vcem/confe</u>

    d/pnames.html, I found this record:
    Name: A. J. M. Pennington Rank: Private

    State Served: Alabama Unit: 18th Infantry

    Regiment Company: B Date of Death: 20 FEB

    1863 Cemetery: Tullahoma Confederate

    Cemetery Location: Coffee County, TN

    Section: Grave Number: Submitter: Mitzi P.

    Freeman Additional Information:

    In the second website for Civil War

    Soldiers, I found a record that matched the

    first. That record said:
    PENNINGTON, A. J. M.18th Bttn. Ala.

    Inf.,??/??/????Date of Death:

    02/20/1863Buried: Maplewood Cem., Co. B,

    Confederate Section, Tullahoma, Coffee Co.,

    Tennessee

    Wow! Could it be? As you can imagine, I'm

    really excited to know that I may have

    actually found the gravesite for my gr-gr-

    grandfather after looking all these years.

    I sent messages to both the volunteers who

    maintained the websites and received a

    prompt reply from a wonderful lady who is

    only known to me as Sharon. She "runs" the

    website on the Confederate Cemetery at

    Tullahoma, TN.

    To learn more about the Cemetery, go to -->

    <u>http://www.snghere1.homestead.com/confedera</u>

    tecemetery.html.
    The cemetery at Tullahoma, TN, is very well

    maintained and the battles that took place

    there are well documented.

    I now have to update my genealogy software

    database and then figure out when I can

    travel to the cemetery and pay my respects.

    With this new information I can now say

    that I can prove our Pennington family

    lineage back to Benajah Pennington, b.

    1770, d. 12 Oct 1855. This is an exciting

    and rewarding place to be in my research.

    My forehead was getting a little sore from

    bumping into all those brick walls!

    Now if I can just identify the father of

    Benajah Pennington, b. 1770, d. 12 Oct

    1855! Next challenge!

    I have saved his military records in my

    Gallery and I have added some photographs

    to my Gallery of the Confederate Cemetery,

    the Memorial there and the panel showing

    the name of my gr-gr-grandfather. The

    pictures were taken by Sharon Goodman who

    has given consent to share the pictures.

    Sharon is the host and webmaster for the

    Grundy County TN Historical Society and

    their newsletter. If you'd like to look at

    Subject: Re: [AFHA] William Wann Sr.

    ROBERT JASPER WANN
    Born: 31 August 1834 Jackson County, Alabama, he was the son of Robert Wann
    and Racheal Poe, the 12th child of 14 children.
    He married 18 June 1857 to Arminda Loyd in Independence County, Arkansas
    He died: 25 June 1916 in Logan County, Ark. Buried at Blue Mountain Cemetery
    located outside of Booneville, Arkansas.

    The brother of ROBERT JASPER WANN was SAMUEL MC GOWAN WANN
    SAMUEL MC GOWAN WANN was born 25 May 1814 in Wayne County, Ky. He was the
    1st born child of 14...parents also being Robert Wann and Racheal Poe.
    He married Martha Archa on 15 Dec 1836 in Bellefonte, Jackson County,
    Alabama.
    He served in the Florida War of 1838 which was actually the Cherokee Indian
    Removal. He was described as blue eyed, dark haired, and fair complexion at
    the age of 24.
    By 1850 he was in Jackson County, Arkansas. He is listed in Bird Township,
    Elgin Post Office in 1860
    Tax records place him there in 1850's.
    According to her Widows Pension Claim, Martha Archa Wann stated that Samuel
    McGowan Wann died 19 Oct 1857 in Elgin, Jackson County, Arkansas. Martha
    kept her family together as she was a very strong willed, organized woman.
    She rented out the land they lived on, and raised the large family by
    herself. She never remarried. Martha died 7 April 1909 at the home of her
    daughter Savannah Wann Godwin in Logan County, Arkansas. She is buried at
    French Prarie Cemetery, Ione, Ark.

    MARTHA CATHERINE WANN (Bible says "Martha Catherine", marriage record says
    "Martha Jane")
    Born: 15 March 1832 Jackson County, Alabama the 11th born child of Robert
    Wann and Racheal Poe. Her brothers were Robert "Jasper" Wann, as well as
    Samuel McGowan Wann.
    Married: Uriah Cole on 7 July 1853 in Independence County, Ark. by Thomas
    Loyd
    I don't have a clue as to when and where she died...do you?
    Hope this didn't confuse you.
    Were Parthenia Cole who married Allen Dill, and Redmond Cole who married
    Martha Jane Wann related to Uriah Cole?
    I have some data on William Wann and Ann McGowan...if you want that contact
    me.

    Ethel and Burnice were married on September 27, 1933. I have his documents and that is where I am getting the information. I have his SS# if that would help with the county.

    Steven Howse has a third child: Analise Elizabeth Howse b. Jan. 26, 05 Chad Taylor is married to Shana Taylor b. Dec. 15, 82 (I will need to look up the date they married and her maiden name,it was the year we had the reunion at Liberty Lake) He has a son, Christian Robert Taylor b. June 21, 07 (on his great, great, grandma's birthday (mom)).

    Amy has remarried, she married Carl Watson. I do not know birth day etc. they married on May 24, 08.

    Sheri Lee Blythe/Aldrich married Keith Lightcap. They have a son, Slater Zane Lightcap, born Aug 20, 05.

    I think that this is all the changes on the page you sent to me.

    Hope this helps you. I will try to get the other information I indicated and send it to you.

    See you Tomorrow.

  • [S103] Calvin Thomas Young - Obiturary published in Northwest Arkansas Times and in Ft. Sumner, NM newspaper, Dear Friends and Family,
    Calvin passed away in the hospital this afternoon about 1:30. He went very fast and very quietly and peacefully. Hospice had brought a bed and other equipment to our house, ordered medication, and we were waiting for the medical transport to take him home. They were due at 1:00 but were a little bit late. Duane had picked Vicki up at the airport in San Diego and they got to the hospital about noon. Vicki got to talk to Calvin some, we don't know whether he could hear her or not. Duane and Vicki went to get some lunch. The nurse came in to take Calvin's vital signs and she said that it looked like he might be dying. Ron, Vicki, Duane and I were all with him. Wayne was at our house receiving the Hospice equipment, so he wasn't there when he died, but he and Kathy got there very soon after. He had been with his Dad almost every night and most of the day yesterday. Our pastor came very quickly, but Calvin was gone before he got there. He comforted us with scripture and prayer.
    Alyssa, Wayne's oldest daughter, had written a letter to Wayne expressing her faith that all was well with Grandpa, and comforting her Dad. We thought it was amazing, because we all thought he had a few days left. Wayne couldn't read it without choking up so the pastor read it to us, and it was so beautiful. It seems that God surrounded us with people who were loving us and comforting us, including the hospital staff, Hospice people, and even a granddaughter who wasn't even with us.
    Wayne's kids made a "Welcome Home Grandpa" sign and they had decorated the living room, where we put the hospital bed, with balloons and it looked so festive. We were so thankful when we saw the beautiful room that God was saying "Welcome home, Calvin."
    We had been told that he probably wouldn't live but a few days, but we were very surprised that he went so quickly. We think it was God who made the medical van late getting there. It was God who allowed Vicki to get there in time to express her love to her father, and it was God who spared him any further pain and suffering.
    Miller-Jones Mortuary was coming to pick Calvin up and the Hospice people recommended that we not be there at that time so Wayne, Vicki and I came home. Duane, Ron and Kris are coming in a little while. We don't know when we will have the funeral services but he will be buried in the Riverside National Cemetery.
    Thanks to all of you for your prayers, love and support, especially during these past few weeks.
    Much love,
    Grandma/Dorothy

    Hello All,
    I received a call this morning from Glen (Ed's son) that Ed passed away last night. Ed experienced a stroke with complications. Please pass this on to family members. Glen said he is thankful for the last year that he spent as Ed's caregiver. He is currently applying for entry into the doctorate program at the University of MO. Pray for his success. There won't be any memorial service, but if you would like to send a card to Glen, I'm sure it would be meaningful to him.

  • [S150] Dear Gene,
    I messaged you a few week ago regarding my great-great grandfather, Andrew Jackson Monroe Pennington. My great-grandfather was James Newton Pennington 1850 to 1939. I have a cousin in possession of James Newton's family Bible, but they say it is in very poor condition. I hope to see it this weekend. Also, I plan to find out exactly where his diary is located, this weekend.
    My grandfather was John Monroe Pennington 1868 to 1960. (Note: I noticed someone entered information that my grandfather died at Dumas (Drew County) Arkansas. He died at Dumas, BUT Dumas is in DESHA County. I was born there, and at my grandfather funeral, therefore, I know.
    My father was Verdell Pennington.
    I've been fortunate to contact many relatives, and expect to have much data soon. You remarked that you would welcome this information. Could you suggest a program for me to buy which would help me enter all my data more efficiently? I am afraid that if I sent it on a spreadsheet it will be too massive. I can enter on a spreadsheet, but I expect to been adding more data as I receive it.
    Also, as I said in my previous e-mail, this ancestry stuff is habit-forming. I have a very large family tree on my mother's side of the family, that I must research. I gotta have help!

    Here is a picture of my grandfather, John Monroe Pennington, taken around 1945 or 1946. He was appx 75-77 years old.

    I am sending this e-mail from my sister's computer because I can't send pictures on my compter at work. My e-mail at work is:
    email address. You can sent your response to my work address or to this address.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  • [S152] Dear family,
    I'm so sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I need to let you
    know that we have had a great loss in our family. Aunt Udene passed
    away yesterday evening (Monday) about 8 PM. She has been battling
    congestive heart failure, as you know, and she had a heart attack
    sometime over the weekend and then pneumonia set in. The Dr. said she
    may not have realized that it was a heart attack--that it might just
    have been a tightening in her chest, and the pneumonia was a result of
    the heart damage. I went to the hospital Monday at noon and she was
    struggling for every breath. She knew me, but all of her energy was
    going into her breathing and she did not speak. Mother visited with her
    last night about 7 PM and had not been home very long when Alan called.
    All of her children were there. We have not been notified of funeral
    arrangements yet--they are doing that this morning--but we'll let you
    know as soon as we hear. You two take care. We love you.

    Hello Dear Family,

    Alice just called me and said C.O. passed away this morning. She didn't go into detail, but said it was kind of sudden. He had eaten breakfast, but passed away not too long after that. They haven't made any plans yet for the funeral.

    Alice and C.O.'s kids have been taking turns staying with them for two or three weeks. I didn't ask her which kids were with her now, but some of them are there.

    Please keep Alice in your prayers. Not only will she be grieving but she will have some very big decisions to make. I doubt that she can stay on the farm by herself for very long.

    I will let you know when I get more information.

    Love to you all

    Gene:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. However, the records that I once had were lost in the mail
    when I decided to share with my brother Leon. All I have is what I recollect from viewing the death certificate
    of my father and after visiting his grave at Alta Mesa Cemetery in Palo Alto.

    I recall my father's graveside plaque stating:

    Robert Gleason Rahe
    Born December 1, 1910
    Died June 21, 1960

    From his death certificate I recall:

    Born: December 1, 1910 in Pendleton, Oregon
    Mother: Maude G. McFarland [or MacFarland](born Ohio, 1884)
    Father: Martin Rahe (I don't recall where he was born, but possibly Michigan)

    My grandmother, Maude, died in 1986.
    My uncle, Leon Rahe, died in 1994 or 1996. (There were only two children from Maude and Martin).

    My brother-in-law, Oran Roberts, told me at the last family reunion that he found a paternal, maternal great grandmother
    named Euphemia Knowlton. I just love her name. It sounds like a Joyful disease! (Euphoria and Anemia ... LOL)

    Anyway, both my brother and I are unable to have children, so this Rahe line ends with us.

    Although I thank you for your work,I do not require any elaborate geneology as there are no children to pass this info down to.
    Leon abandoned the practice years ago.

    It is interesting though!

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Hi Gene,
    I was just enjoying your site, again, and wanted to tell you how fantastic I think it is. You have done a beautiful job of recording our family tree. Sometime when you are updating things would you make a couple of changes in our area please? Under Eichelberger Family - Andrew John's last name is Denham rather than Eichelberber. As of now, Ray Eichelberger is still living. Under the Denham Family - Arthur Winfred Denham died in August 1970 in Dayton, Ohio and is burried there. Thank you so very much for creating such a great site that the whole family can enjoy.

    What is going on in your life? Are you enjoying retirement? Hal just had two knee surgeries that he is still recovering from, and I recently went through an arbitration hearing in which I represented myself and won, and now the defendants (stock brokerage firms) are suing me through a US District Court in Houston to try to reverse the award. I have to appear in Houston on March 3. So most of our time is spent between those two things and starting to prepare our income taxes. Betty and Del were just here for a short visit which I enjoyed very much. The rest of the family are doing OK. Linda will never be any better, just progressively worse. Jerry doesn't do what he needs to do to get better. LeRoy is trying very hard and doing great. He is sharing his story of how good God has been to him with everyone who will listen.

    If you come to Las Vegas, please remember that we are here. It would be great to see you.
    Love,
    Mary

    [COLOR:31,73,125,255,255,255]Hi Gene,

    I recently made a breakthrough on Charles Wesley Justis’ second wife’s parents. Mary “Mollie” Medesimus Williams’ parents are Nathan Lawrence “LW” Williams (1836-1910) and Mary Ann “Polly” Moser (1833-1892). The information came through a combination of death records and census. Cynthia Arabelle (Williams) Wright’s death certificate listed her father as Nathan Williams. It took following some hunches to find Isaiah Captain “Cap” Williams, and his death certificate listed his parents as LW Williams and Polly Moser, both from North Carolina. Sarah Isabelle (Williams) Alland’s funeral record lists her parents as LW Williams and Sarah Moser; while the informant got the first name of her mother wrong, he got the last name right. Both parents were born in Chatham County, North Carolina. Nathan Lawrence “LW” Williams’ father is Jesse Williams (1793- ) and his grandparents are David Williams and Drusilla Poe. Mary Ann “Polly” Moser’s parents are William Moser (1801-1888) and Mary M. Fox (1806-1882). Her parental grandparents are John Moser and Sarah Garrett, and her maternal grandparents are John Fox and Mary Magdalina Cobb. There is a lot on their line out on the internet.

    I'm sure Carrie will give you the information for Travis William
    Eldridge and his son Wesley William Eldridge so here is the
    information for the rest of Charlie's biological children:

    First born: Carla Ann Eldridge born October 9, 1965 St Joseph's

    Son Randall Wesley Nelson born September 21, 1988 in
    Manistique, MI, his father's name is Doug Nelson who is also on
    my friend's list if you need more information about him and his
    family it would be a great idea to note his brother Brian who is the
    family genealogist

    Randall married Stephanie on February 18, 2011.

    Daughter Emily Lorena Eldridge born January 4, 1993 Anchorage,
    Alaska Her father's name is Lyle Albert Floyd, born July 1969

    passed in 1985.(he won't discuss it, the baby passed from SIDS)

    Third born: My sister Tracy Eldridge born April 15 1971? (You
    might ask Tracy the year for sure) in Albuquerque, NM to Charles
    Wesley Eldridge and Connie Lee Robison

    Amelia Sancido born on March 12, 1992
    Adrienne Martinez born on January 9, 1997

    seem to have lost track after Aleeya, at least I remember their
    names :D)
    Isaac Martinez born on
    Alora Martinez born on
    Noah Martinez born on

    And there you have it. You probably know more at this point than
    Charlie does!
