About Abraham Pennington, Sr

«b»Abraham Pennington«/b»Abraham Pennington, the progenitor of Group 8, was probably born around 1690, possibly in the vicinity of Cecil County, Maryland. Records show he migrated to Virginia and later to Berkeley County, South Carolina where he died in 1756. Much has been written of Abraham and he is referred to in various deeds and records as yeoman, planter and Indian trader. «b»The identity of Abraham's parents is unknown«/b». A possible good lead in the search for Abraham's parents is the will, dated 1739, of John Pennington of North East, Cecil County, MD (Vol. 22, Folio 94; described in Pennington Pedigrees, volume 29-2, p. 72; article by Sybil Hampton). The will of this John mentions "my brother Abram Pennington" who could possibly be the Group 8 progenitor. However, the parents of John and his precise relationship to "Abram" are unknown. More research is needed. Please contact me at «u»rodpenn@iquest.net <mailto:rodpenn@iquest.net>«/u» with any information or theories relating to the parentage of Abraham. «i»Important note: I, personally, have «u»not«/u» seen any evidence to even suggest that Abraham's mother was named "Mary Elkton", nor have I seen evidence to indicate his father was named Abraham.«b»«/i»Wives of Abraham«/b». Abraham's wife at the time of his death was named Catherine, but it is apparent that he had one or more earlier marriages. In his book "Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia", Cecil O'Dell points out that on 4 Nov 1719 Abraham "and his wife Mary" sold land to John Sargeant. However, in a 1724 sale of land by Abraham to William Cox, there is no wife signing the deed or releasing dower rights. Therefore, one can speculate that Abraham's wife Mary was deceased. A 1738 deed (see below) mentions his wife Catherine, who may be the same Catherine named in his will in 1755. «i»Important note: I have «u»not«/u» seen any evidence to suggest that Abraham was ever married to a woman named "Katerina Wiester" or "Wuester".«b»«/i»Sources of information«/b». Abraham is found in numerous Maryland, Virginia, and South Carolina records and several books summarize and interpret these records in a very useful fashion. These include the following:«tab» "Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia" by Cecil O'Dell (Walsworth Publishing Company, Marceline, MO, 1995). I refer to this frequently below as "Pioneers of Old Frederick". «tab»"Ancestors and Kin" by Robert Walden Coggeshall" (The Reprint Company, Publishers, Spartanburg, SC, 1988) «tab»"James Stark of Stafford County Virginia and His Descendants" (typed manuscript compiled by Mary Kathryn Harris and Mary Iva Jean Jorgenson, privately printed in Forth Worth, TX, 1985) «tab»"The Penningtons of Big Buffalo" by Ruth Dickey (P-Vine Press, Columbia, TN, circa 1981) «b»«i»Abraham Pennington timeline «/b»«/i» First-some comments and disclaimers «tab»Do NOT take the following as gospel truth!

Some of these men had obtained patents for land in this region from the Governor of NC who claimed that the territory between the Enoree and Tyger Rivers was in Anson County, NC".

In 1755 Jacob Pennington bought 200 acres from John Fairchild and wife Rachel (Charleston deed Bk. B-3. p 89). In 1770 Jacob Pennington and wife Mary of Berkley Co.

Wagon roads were a necessity for the early settlers of Ninety Six District because they had to haul their supplies the many miles from the settlements of Charleston and others along the Atlantic Coast. Commissioners were appointed to lay out and oversee the building of these roads. One such road went from Indian Island Ford to Hendrick's Mill on the Enoree River and Jacob Pennington was one of the commissioners appointed to oversee its construction. This road later became known as the Ninety Six Road. The date of birth given for Jacob Pennington is his chr. date. Pennington Pedigrees 2-1, pg 15 Will of Jacob Pennington Dec. 7, 1762.
