  • Notes 

    • == Biography ==
      Around 1859 (this is probably the time frame that John died) John's sons Levi, John R., and others left Simpson Co., KY and moved to Moniteau County, MO with the family dog. According to their family tradition, the dog disappeared after a few days, and months later they received a letter from the family back in KY that the dog showed up there! Levi and John are listed in Moniteau County, MO on the 1860 census. Levi had a son born in 1865 named Littleberry. Levi and John both spentthe rest of their lives in MO. John is buried in a cemetery where Joseph E Pennington is buried. This Joseph was the son of Littleberry (b. 1814).
      Levi was an odd person. Cantankerous and difficult. It sounds like nobody got along with him, not even his wife and children. He was a hard and unforgiving person. And being so difficult, he might have had trouble keeping a job (or customers) and maybe therefore never managed to acquire property. He moved around a lot, living with different children, and his wife also stayed with children. They even said harsh stuff about him in his obituary. Source: Deb Claussen - 1/14/2007

      == Obituary ==

      :From the June 21, 1900 California Democrat
      :Death of Levi Pennington
      :Levi Pennington was found dead on the farm of A. J. Graves, near Clarksburg Tuesday, about sundown.
      :The coroner, Dr J. A. Crum was called, but no inquest was deemed necessary, death ensuing from general debility super induced by age.
      :He was returning from the Walter scheid farm and had started to thehome of his son, Berry Pennington, climbing a hill he became exhausted and sat down upon a stump, from which he was never to rise.
      :"Bug" Pennington, as he was familiarly known, was born in Kentucky, but has lived in Missouri for about 50 years. He was quite a character, a man of strong prejudices, with not a strong inclination to either forgive or forget. His wife and several children are living. He was about 75 years of age.
