S.R. Penn & Family
     "I do not know which of their children it is but they are married.  Sanford R  Penn married Elizabeth Hardin/Harding in Green, Kentucky.  One born 1822 (sr) and the other born 1824.  Guess that is their first child.  But only know about their last child Samuel Brown Penn born in Texas.  Elizabeth Hardin Penn..(believe a marriage before Lindsey and besides Penn)...Lindsey-the lady in the plot in the Kentuckytown cemetery.  S.B., her son and my greatgrandfather is buried in Shawnee, Okla. in a Penn/Enos plot at Fairview Cemetary.  I wish I knew what happened to Sanford R. Penn but he died early in civil war after joining up in Texas.  believe he might have died in Oklahoma Territory."

   "My grandmother is the girl on the left, elizabeth penn.  Her sister Arlene is the other girl.  Her father Samuel Brown Penn and his wife Mattie Morgan Penn are the older couple.  That picture was taken about 1935.  He, of course, grew up in texas-as did his wife.  Somewhere is a story my mother wrote about her grandfather and grandmother growing up in Texas.  I also have a series of stories that I think is in my greatgrandmother's handwriting about growing up in that area of texas as a child and how her father came to Texas in the first place.  Samuel Brown Penn (called S.B.) was of course the son of Sanford R. and Elizabeth Hardin Penn Lindsey."
   "Arlene Penn married Leon Toliver (Tol) Boswell and they lived in Brownsville.  There are many Boswells
still in the Harlingen/Brownsville area.  I believe their youngest son and last surviving member of his
generation-Sam Penn Boswell may have the family bible. There is even a Sam Penn Boswell the 3rd now."
