After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete.

pennington sisters 917 viewsThese are the daughters of Stephen and Johanna Pennington; Cansada Jane (known as Aunt Jenny to the family, I believe, but certainly NOT Cansada, though she was enumerated on at least one census with that name) is in the center. Youngest daughter Martha Caroline (Sturgill) is on the right; Orlean (Young) on the left. I have no idea who the accordian player is. He doesn't look like the Pennington's only son Cicero to my eye.
