In Reply to: Alexander Penman/Agnes Morris 1834 by Tracy Penman of 291

I have information on this family, but it is old. Alexander Penman, b. 1812 (may have been Edward Alexander); d. 1874 in Wellwood, Scotland. Coal Miner. Parents: Alexander Penman and Helen Cook. Agnes Morris, b. 1813; d. Apr 1909 in Dairy Place, Scotland. Children of Alexander Penman and Agnes Morris:
-Alexander, came to U.S. and returned to Scotland; d. 1890 at Halbeath, Fife.
-David, b. 1840 - coal miner; d. 29 Sep 1920 at Muir Road, Townshill, Scotland; m. Barbara Wilson.
-William, came to U.S. and returned to Scotland; m. married Mary Nesbit.
-John Morris, b. 17 Aug 1842 in Dunfermline, Scotland; d. 3 Jun 1930 Punxsutawny, PA; m. Margaret Nesbit. She b. 8 Feb 1846 Dunfermline; d. 17 Nov 1896 at Punxsutawney. They came to the U.S. about 1870-72.
-Helen, lived in Scotland; m. -- Hunter.

This info was given to me many years ago by some Penmans who lived in Concord, CA, I believe the name was Edward Penman. They had listed their source as Mabel Rath, who lived in Sykesville PA (Jefferson county).

A lot of the info on these Penmans seemed to coincide with mine, but have never made a connection. My Penmans (David, b. ca 1803,m. Jennie Duncan; and son David, b. 21 Feb 1847, county Fife; m. Hannah Williams in PA) came to the U.S. in 1866 and lived in Mercer county, PA., then to Iowa, then to Oregon. They've been a difficult bunch to trace.

Hope this has helped.
