Born 1829-1830, OH, to Joshua 1804-5 PA & Mary 1805 KY ,on 1850 census in Sand Creek twp, Decatur, Indiana, I find that he had brothers Joel ( married Lydia), Lewis, and sisters Angelina & Mary. John married Anna Marie (Springer) Ballinger 11/21/1854 in Decatur, IN. this was her 2nd marriage. She had 2 children, with first husband John Ballinger, named John Zebulon & Calista "Callie" Ballinger. John Pennington and Anna had 5 more boys. Harry Springer 1856, H Leslie 1857, Edwin 1863, Frank 1858, Lewis M 1867. In 1850, John was in Decatur , Sand creek twp, indiana, In 1860 same place, but according to 1870 census they now lived in Fountain Green twp, Hancock Co, IL. with all the kids. But on 1880 census for same place Anna is a widow. I have not been able to locate his death date or burial place in that county, but there are two cemeteries in the area which were not kept up over the years. Hopefully someday I will know when he died and where. But for now, he died after the 1870 census and before the 1880 census. This is a memorial for any others who may be looking for him too. Gone but not forgotten.
