  •  Daniel Pennington Letter - This is a letter written from Daniel Pennington to his son John Wesley Pennington.  Daniel's line is Daniel>Levi>Micajah. I have believed in the past that Daniel was a son of Levi and grandson of Levi.  However, further research has shown that he is a son of Levi and brother to Andrew Pennington b. 1813 and half brother of Levi b. 1794. Special Thanks to Doyle King and Wayne King for supplying a copy of this document.
