Vernon Journal September 30, 1896

Mrs. L.D. Pennington, whose maiden name was Elizabeth A. Stone, was born Sept. 4, 1830, on the old Boner farm, about one mile south of the residence in which she died. Her girlhood days were passed in Vernon, at which place she was married on March 21, 1850, to Lorenzo D. Pennington by Elder Hickman New, after which they settled at Westport, Ind., and lived at that place until they moved to their present residence in April, 1865. She passed away at 6 o'clock a.m., Sept. 18, 1896, after eight months of intense suffering. She leaves a husband and seven children-three sons and four daughters, and a host of friends to mourn their loss. A long time prior to her death she knew her disease was incurable, but her faith was placed in Him who can cure all pain and she trustingly awaited the coming of the Great Physician. Shortly before her death she called her family to her bedside and bade them good bye, requesting them to place their trust in the Lord. Then, suddenly raising her clasped hands, and looking toward heaven, exclaimed, "Into your hands I put my fate," and expired. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Horace Spears at the family residence and her remains were laid to rest in the Vernon Cemetery.
