    1. [PENN] Leave a Farewell Message
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Leave a Farewell Message*_/ This post was by Judith to MODAVIES: suggestion: People may want to post a "farewell" message on the mailing list before it goes to archive, and in this message include an email you plan to keep for the foreseeable future. A separate email could be set up expressly for this purpose if it is more convenient/secure. (You'll want web-based, not provider-based.) That way, if someone peruses the archive & finds a possible connection, they would have a way to get in touch with you privately. I have been on a couple of lists that went archival at some point, and I really wish I had done that, as our old email was provider-based and - once that provider went defunct, people looking through the defunct mailing list had no way to contact me (nor I them) It's easier to track people down these days, but I'd still suggest this. I think this to be an excellent idea, wish I thought it. I would like to expand to suggest that a post to include Your name, best address to reach you (one that might be dedicated to your genealogy research), a list surname(s) of interest, a list to places of interest (country, region, state, county), subject of interest, snail mail address (at your own risk), telephone number (again at your own risk), web address if you have a website, where you “moved.” Please keep in mind these to be suggestions and you should only provide what you would be comfortable for “ibots” to find. Might not want to wait to last minute. This would give system to process information and have it posted. With this in mind, please do not be concerned when you see my post to the nearly 300 (took inventory; final count was 298 – just sharing) mailing lists I admin. I will be leaving my time capsule to the list(s) in the coming days. But I will be here til Roots Web turn off the lights and lock the door. Let me take a few lines to acknowledge all the “thank-you” I have received. I started with a few surnames and expanded to counties more recently. But you are all “welcomed.” I try serve with the volunteer spirit and a happy heart. Please overlook my frustration that may boil to the top in the coming days. Susan

    1. [PENN] Update
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hi everyone! This has been heavy on my heart since Ancestry / Roots Web announcement. I have been admin / moderator for various mailing lists for 25+ years (some lists that predate Roots Web). The options for change do not fit my personal criteria. This is, also, not happening at a time I am able to give personal time for this change. Plus, I think Ancestry is not given an adequate “heads up” for this change. (I personally admin 200+ lists) So I have made the decision to become a subscriber as opposed to an administrator. I will remain admin to the mailing lists I currently admin till Roots Web makes the changes they propose on March 2^nd . I am leaving the decision for change to the list members. I am still gathering options. I will post suggestions in the next few days. The major option I am hearing is Facebook. I suppose this could work. But Facebook, in my humble opinion, would be turning a mailing list into a message board. And various mailing list members have stated they would not Facebook. Personally, I am in this bucket. I have personal issues with Facebook. Open discussion on the list. Voice your opinion. Enough for now. Will post more on other options in the future.

    1. [PENN] Roots Web no longer supporting mailing list in March 2020
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. For those that have not heard the news ... Rootsweb will no longer be supporting mailing lists in March 2020.  It will remain read only, so archives will be accessible.  In my mind, I question how long. Please keep in mind that each mailing list archives is the property of RootsWeb and will not be able to moved, removed, etc. Only the mailing list members list will be accessible by the admin for that list. I am looking for alternatives which I have started listing below. Alternatives: Ancestry -- as I understand, this alternative is platform based. Meaning one would have to long into to post a message as opposed to simply sending an e-mail. Groups.io -- would keep mailing, but to get full function a fee would be required. Google Groups -- I have not researched this option.  Personally, I have issues with Google and will not pursue this option as admin. I suppose the major decision is whether to remain an e-mail based Group or platform based? Discussion in open...

    1. [PENN] Namesake of our Gold Rush town (Penn Valley, CA) Madame Penn from Ohio? b. abt 1828
    2. LAUREL PALOMARES
    3. Greetings All, I am attempting to find/fill in the details of a Gold Rush Pioneer known as Madame Penn for whom our town is said to be named here in Penn Valley, CA. Facts so far, are unfortunately minimal. The Big Question: is anyone aware of someone in their family tree who may fit the description of this very enterprising young woman who came to Nevada County California, probably in the spring of 1849, probably overland from the vicinity of Ohio with her husband, presumably a Penn? This is what is currently known: California State Census, 1852 Name: M. Penn Last Residence: Ohio Estimated Birth Year: abt 1828 Age: 24 Residence County: Nevada This may be her or her husband or someone else; its unclear. I suspect it’s her. (possibly says age 25, so b. 1827?) No other Penn comes up on the 1852 census for Nevada County. However, I also found the following record in an adjacent Gold Rush county, the only other Penn in the census from Ohio: California State Census, 1852 Name: Thomas Penn Race: White Gender: Male Birth Place: Ohio Last Residence: Ohio Estimated Birth Year: 1824 Age: 28 Residence County: El Dorado Also the following accounts: “Madam Penn arrived in Nevada (city) the latter part of October (1849) with her husband. She was a hard working woman and done her bit operating a Rocker (mining equipment) with her husband.” “First Boarding House: In the spring of 1850 the population of these diggins began to increase, Madam Penn opened up a boarding house which was greatly needed and appreciated. This boarding house was located on Main Street former site of Union Hotel (previously the Empire Hotel).” From Box 32-F (Fire Department), Nevada City 1 of 2, Jonathan Dowell Collection, Nevada County Historical Society “The first board building in Nevada (city) was built by Madame Penn, in the spring of 1850, on the spot where the Empire (hotel) now stands near the foot of Main Street.” From Brown & Dallison’s Nevada, Grass Valley and Rough & Ready Directed, reprinted by Maria E. Fields Brower 2001 “The Ennor property was originally homesteaded in 1849 by Madame Penn, who was supposedly the namesake of Penn Valley. Jesse Ennor’s father James Ennor purchased the 600-acre property in 1852.” From Images of America: Ranches and Agriculture in Nevada County, Maria E. Brewer Nothing found so far in local records for Marriage/Divorce, Naturalization, or Deaths/Markers, suggesting possibly that she or he or they, arrived married, were already U.S. citizens & left the area before their deaths. Very little is specifically mentioned about her husband other than she arrived with one. If Thomas Penn was her husband & went to try for their fortune in the nearby El Dorado County, it could explain why he isn’t around in Nevada County. I haven’t fully exploited El Dorado county records yet. I know this isn't very much to go on, but it’s all we seem to have at this time. Any assistance is greatly appreciated, LAUREL Penn Valley, Nevada County, CA Email: [email protected]

    1. [PENN] William Penn born about 1828 married to Sarah Jane McClearnan/McClearney New Jersey
    2. Ella Coleman-Artz via
    3. Hello everyone I am trying to help a friend put his family tree together. One of his sets of great grandparents were Thomas A WELSH born 1900 Philadelphia, PA and Clara HOFFMAN born 1900 Amsterdam, NY. This is what I've found so far for him... Thomas was the son of Joseph A WELSH born 1874 Philadelphia and Mary Elizabeth PENN born 1875 Mt Holly, Burlington, NJ. Mary was the daughter of William PENN born October 1852 Township, Westhampton, Burlington, NJ and Mary A DEEHAN born 1855 Philadelphia. William later married a Delia. Young Mary's siblings were Alice, Sadie J and Dellia/Della William was the son of William PENN born about 1828 in New Jersey and Sarah Jane McCLERNAN (McCLEARNAN or McCLEARNEY?) born 1835 Ireland. Young William's siblings were Mary Ann, James, Edward, George and Alfreda. William Penn Sr's records are found in Pemberton, Camden, NJ...Mansfield and Northampton, Burlington, NJ as well as Philadelphia as he died there in 1894. I think I find him in Southampton, Burlington, NJ in 1850 living with ASAYs. William PENN Sr had a sister Mary born about 1832 in New Jersey who was married to a Thomas ALCOTT born about 1830 In NJ. Burlington County, NJ and Philadelphia. This is where I hit a brick wall. If anyone has any information to share on this family I would certainly love to hear it! Thank you in advance and happy hunting! Ella

    1. [PENN] John Penn (1760-1834) and Baron Nicholay's sister
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: lanceewing Surnames: Penn Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.penn/1579/mb.ashx Message Board Post: There is a lot of information on the Internet about John Penn, born in London on 22nd Feb 1760, and who died at Stoke Park, Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire, England, on 21st March 1834. He was the grandson of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, and he inherited a large part of Pennsylvania, and the governorship of that province, in 1775, at aged 15, when his father Thomas Penn died. He also inherited Stoke Park. My question relates specifically to a friendship that John Penn supposedly had with a Russian nobleman referred to as Baron Nicholay. There is only one reference I have found to the friendship, and it seems a fairly reliable one. It appears in an article published in Graham's Magazine, Vol. XXXII. PHILADELPHIA, FEBRUARY, 1848. No. 2. (page 73). The article is entitled "STOKE CHURCH AND PARK. THE SCENE OF GRAY'S ELEGY, AND RESIDENCE OF THE PENNS OF PENNSYLVANIA" and was written by Robert Balmanno (1780-1861). The following is a link to the article: http://www.gutenberg.ca/ebooks/grahams-32.2/grahams-32.2-01-h-dir/grahams-32.2-01-h.html#stoke On page 85, Robert Balmanno relates part of a discussion that he had with John Penn's housekeeper during his stay at Stoke Park. This discussion took place sometime around 1815. It says the following: "On inquiring whether the grand coroneted bed, which had been as a hot gridiron to me, was intended for any particular person, she informed me it was for a Russian nobleman, Baron Nicholay, a much respected friend of Mr. Penn's, who sometimes visited Stoke, and who, being used to a bed of down in the cold climate of his own country, Mr. Penn, with his characteristic kindness and attention, had it prepared for the baron's especial comfort. She added that the reason why Mr. Penn had all his life remained a bachelor, was in consequence of an early attachment which he had formed for the baron's sister; that they were to have been married, but in driving the lady in a drouschky, or sledge, on the ice of the Neva, at St. Petersburg, by some fatality the ice gave way, and notwithstanding the most strenuous exertions of her lover, and the servant who stood behind the sled, the lady, by the force of the current, was swept away under the ice, and never afterward seen. That this shocki! ng accident had such effect on Mr. Penn's mind, as well it might, he never could think of any other woman, but remained true and constant to his first love, mourning her tragic end all his life." I'm trying to find answers to the following questions: 1. Who exactly was Baron Nicholay? 2. Where did John Penn meet him, and how did they become friends to such a degree that he had a special bedroom in his Stoke Park mansion house for him? 3. What was the name of the Baron's sister, and on what date did the accident on the Neva in St Petersburg happen? King George III supposedly celebrated a wedding anniversary at John Penn's mansion house on the Isle of Portland. John Penn is also known to have entertained George Washington at his house in Philadelphia. So he certainly didn't lack powerful connections. Baron Nicholay is likely to have been someone well known, someone within the kinds of circles that John Penn was in. There are many references on the Internet to the fact that John Penn founded the "Matrimonial Society", soon renamed the "Outinian Society", whose purpose was to encourage young men and women to marry. He himself never married. I find it strange that if the above account of his attachment to a Russian nobleman's sister is true that there are no other references to it, given that this is supposedly the reason why he never married. We have no reason to doubt the word of either Robert Balmanno or John Penn's housekeeper, so if it was a genuine event, there must be other references to it in records somewhere. The death of a well known Russian nobleman's sister, in a public area such as sledging on the Neva, would surely have been mentioned somewhere. In 1815, at the time of the house keeper's account, John Penn would have been 55 years old. The housekeeper refers to an "early attachment", suggesting that he was a young man at the time of the accident on the ice of the Neva. How old might he have been then? During the 1780s, he would have been in his 20s. This seems like the most likely time for a man to form an early attachment, intended for marriage. However, he supposedly spent a large part of the 1780s living in Philadelphia (dates on this vary, but from around 1782/3 to 1788/9), at his house called The Solitude. He may have travelled a lot during this time though. During the 1790s, he was back in England and living at Stoke Park, Buckinghamshire, busy building his new mansion house. During this decade he was in his 30s. I guess that might still be early enough to be referred to as an "early attachment". It is unlikely though that the "early attachment" mentioned was in the 1800s, so I think we're looking for a time period somewhere between 1775 and 1799. In 1775 he was only 15 years old. There are references to him supposedly travelling with his mother to live in Geneva for a while in 1775. I can't find any information on how long this was for, but there are other reference to him entering Clare Hall, Cambridge, in 1776, as a nobleman. He matriculated in 1777 and was created MA in 1779. Before Cambridge, he supposedly went to Eton College. Did he meet Baron Nicholay at Eton? Or Cambridge? In Philadelphia? In Geneva? Or simply through his connections with royalty and other nobility? John Penn was also involved in politics, so I wondered whether he met Baron Nicholay at that time, in a political capacity. It seems too late in his life though. It wasn't until he was nearly 40. Is that early enough? I'm not sure. I guess we can't rule it out. What other ways could there have been, for a man of Russian nobility, presumably who was based in St Petersburg, to form a much respected friendship with John Penn? It's a mystery at the moment.

Author: michaelmcmullen142 Surnames: Penn, Lady Jenko, Lady Jenks, Susan McPherson, McPherson, William Penn, Jr. Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.penn/796.21/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Have you ever heard of the story about William Penn, Jr. supposedly having a second marriage to a lady named Susan McPherson, or "Lady Jenko" or "Lady Jenks"? or of having an illegitimate child with this woman, which would eventually, supposedly lead to James Penn, of Cumberland County, New Jersey? There is only word of mouth, and lots of mouths, and its even mentioned in an obituary posted on findagrave.com about this. I'm thinking there's lots of believers out there, and I'm just trying to crack this case, and proof even myself wrong. below is a link that'll help you understand more of what I am talking about http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vaseyroots/vaseyroots/Penn_Ancestors.html Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Traveled to England twice to fine info on her and have been to Hampton. I was told that she was a noble from Hamden. And possibly raised her own child by Henry VIII. Have been unable to verify the info however. Thanks for any info you can provide, Theresa [email protected] Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
