I had posted before, a few years ago when I began this journey. I am still looking for any information or stories anyone may have about my Pennington relatives.
My great grandmother was Eva Pennington 1904 -1951
My great great grandparents - Eva's parent's - Abbigale (Hattie) Pierce and William Pennington.
Great great great grandparents - William Bailey Pierce and Susan Gatlin. (I believe Andrew Jackson Pierce is William Bailey Pierce's brother if my tree is correct)
My grandfather has told me that he had been told stories about having Cherokee Indian blood on his mother's (Eva's) side. According to the stories he had been told when he was a kid, they had basically been removed and sent along what sounds like the Trail of Tears from North Carolina and eventually some time after settled in Arkansas.
I don't know if this is true, and my tree seems to go back too far for it to help confirm this. I am not even sure I have the correct people past what I have listed above.
So again, any information would be awesome!
