I know that Nathan and Penelope had many children. I'll check my files and see what I can find. I descend from their daughter, Exerlina Ann Garner (1833-1887) who married Amos W. Simmons (1830-1910) of Duplin County, NC. Amos was descended from Mary Kornegay, the only daughter of the immigrant George; Mary's first husband was Daniel Simmons, son of the immigrant Johannes Simon (name Anglicized to John Simmons) and her second was Edward DeBruhl.

I think just about everyone in the Mt. Olive area must have at least one line to the immigrant, George Kornegay. Given the uniqueness of the name (everyone in the country who spells it that way is one of George's descendants), it would probably be relatively simple to prepare a comprehensive genealogy of this family.
