Hello All. I was wondering if anyone could help me out. My family are the African American Penn's and i haven't been able to find any info on them.
My maternal Great Grandmother was Hattie Belle Penn(before marrying a Fletcher), born in the 1880's in Athens, Limestone Co., Alabama. Her father's name was William and he was born around 1830 to 1840.
I know that for sure because his wife died at age 103 in 1936, and he and his wife were close in age. Rumor was that he possessed many European traits and passed when he wanted to for white. If anyone
can help me at all, please let me know. Input, advice, and/or assistance is welcome.
