My father was Joseph H. Penwell and my mother was Emma Gann.
Emma Gann was born Feruary 14, 1905 at Texanna, Creek Nation, Indian Territory. Her father was William Samuel Gann born 1869 in Conway County, Arkansas. W. S. Gann died in 1925 at Brooken, Oklahoma. Her mother was Louise Tolliver 1870-1915. William Samuel Gann and Louise Tolliver married in April 1891 at Briartown, Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory. Emma Gann Penwell died in 1992 and is interred at the Brooken Cemetary.
Joseph Travis Penwell was born April 12, 1859 in Volusia County, Florida near Enterprise Post Office. His father was Moses Penwell and his mother was Sylvania Widener. Joseph Travis Penwell was brought to Madison County, Arkansas in 1874 by the Reverend James Taylor Stockton and his wife Harriet (Barco) Stockton. He never saw any of his family again from 1874 until his death at Hoyt, Oklahoma in 1938.
Note: I placed the marriage of Moses Penwell and Sylvania Widener in South Carolina in the year 1855 based on the age and birthplace of Samuel Wesley Penwell as 1856 in South Carolina.
Note: I placed the move of Moses and Sylvania Penwell to Florida in the year 1857 or 1858 based on the fact that Joseph Travis Penwell was born in Florida in 1859.
These two households were side by side on the 1850 Census of Barnwell County, South Carolina. In my opinion, Martha, Teretha and Thomas were Moses' brother and sisters.
