Family Trees

Here is a newly updated directory with family pages for some of the descendants of Ephraim Pennington of North Carolina, excluding living individuals. This replaces the old collection of files that began with Ephraim's son, Timothy. If you see any errors, or have any additional information about this family you'd like to share, please email them to me.

A word of caution is appropriate here. The information in this site is not documented here with conventional civil records for the most part. Documentation for much of it is available from the major contributors of the information in the GEDCOM file in this site, Burney Parker and DeLois Pavlicek. A page of sources is available: click the superscripted numbers following each data item that is sourced. Sources are cited in each person's page, not family cards.

Updated 1 August 2002


Some scanned documents from my personal collection of family letters and other items are posted here. Please be aware that these images are quite large, to provide optimal resolution. You will also need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader version 3.01 or higher to open these files.

The Pennington Research Association (PRA) has a website and an email list, as well as a growing collection of published literature.

Other Group 4 Researchers

The PRA has established a system of "family groups" to help researchers find others who are closely related to them. Timothy and Riggs Pennington fall into Group 4 (descendants of Ephraim of NC). Another large branch in Group 4 are descendants of Timothy's brother, Richard. A webpage that includes 6 generations of Richard's descendants (and descendants of his wife, Hannah Boone, from her first marriage to John Stewart) is at
