My great-great-great grandmother Littleton was born Henrietta Pennewell in Worcester County, MD. She married Thomas W. Littleton in 1855. Her son Henry Littleton's obituary from 1936 said that his parents were from Pittsville, MD. Looking at census records, I am almost certain Henrietta was the daughter of a John Pennell, though I suspect that was a variation spelling on Pennewell.

I drove down in that area a few years ago looking at a few small farm cemeteries, and found the grave of a Noah J. Pennewell, 1855-1931.

Below are some of the references to Pennewell I found in research at the Nabb Center in Salisbury, MD).
