44. John Thomas (Suspect) Pennington
I would read this following will to suggest that William Thomas Pennington and Elizabeth Northington were the parents of John Thomas rather than Betsy. (Jim Lantz)
In Marriage records, Brunswick Co., VA., 1750-1810, we find: "Pennington, John Thomas & Betsy Pennington. Sur. Wm. T. Pennington. Marr. by the Rev. Aaron Brown, Methodist, 10 May, 1802, p. 133." Betsy and John were cousins. They had at least two children, Drury and Patsy. Brunswick Co. Deed 19, p. 164, gives the following information: "William T. Pennington, of Brunswick Co., commits to care of John T. Pennington, as a third person, two negros to support famlies and to assist in schooling of Drury Pennington and Patsy Pennington, children of the above named John T. Pennington and grandchildren of above named William T. Pennington. Wit: Jesse & Sterling Northington." It is probable that Nathan N. Pennington was also a child of John Thomas and Betsy.
