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.
