Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am one of the daughters of Albert Penny who was born in Linden,Cass Co. Texas. He died Feb. 11, 1980 in Shreveport, Caddo Parish LA. I was born Jan. 27, 1947 in Arcadia, LA. I was raised in an orphanage from 1951 until June 15, 1963. Did not get to meet too many of my relatives so I would love to have pictures of them if possible. My Mother's name is Sadie Lou Bingle from Darden, Bowie, TX. Her birthday is 3/27/1929 and she died 3/13/1951 in Shreveport, Caddo Parish, LA. is buried in Wilson Cem. Grand Bayou, LA. I have three girls still alive and one son who died in 2007. His name is Odell Michael Crouch Jr. born 12/13/1979 in Shreveport. Caddo Parish, LA and died in San Jacinto, Riverside Co, CA 3/05/2007. We did not bury him he was cremated so we have his ashes with us. I know some of my relatives came from back east from NC,VA,SC, GA,AL, MS,OK,AK,and then to Texas where most of them died. I do not know if I have very many cousins left from all his brothers and sisters. I sure hope there are some still alive. I am very new at this so I need as much input as the days go by. I say you are never too old to start something new. Guess I am sort of the proof. Need to get my son's family tree done too before I leave this world behind. So here's looking towards a wonderful friendship and meeting some of my kin. My kin are mostly Pennys not counting the different last names for wives of the men. The other side of my family are the Bingles on my mother's side. My girls are Hebert and my son's is Crouch.
I am doing the Spencers, Marcouxs, Labbes, and others on my husband's side now too. They are mainly in Lewiston, Androscoggin, Maine and some came to Los Angeles, CA. Some are in Aroostook County, Maine and Canada.

Bratton Family
Hi Ruby!
I noticed that on most of my Bratton Aunt's and Uncle's and cousin's that you have left flowers that say you are a relative.
I don't recall a Ruby in the family tree.
Did I miss something somewhere, do I need to do an update?
Just checking.

Hi Ruby,
George Emory Goff and wife Mary Ann (Frost) are my 5th great grandparents. George's father John Goff received a pension from serving in the Revolutionary War. Do you have any proof of George Emory Goff's parents? Thanks Karen Walker

Hi Ruby. My name is Laurie and I am J.R. Finley's great great granddaughter. I saw the notes you left. Are you related to the Finley's? I hope your research is going well. You are so right in that it is never to late to get started.

Warmest Wishes,

RE: Hello My Friend
Hi Ruby,

Hope all is well with you. No snow in my area yet, next week we are looking at warmer temps - in the 50s. You said you are researching the Lewiston area; did you know that Google has free newspaper scans from Lewiston? I have found a lot of helpful info there.

I have transferred your cousin, Donald Freeman, to your care.
