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.

Sally - Midcoast Maine
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.

Roy Hudson
Samuel W. Smith
HI Ruby:
This Ry Hudson we spoke a couple years back about Samuel W. Smith being related to Albert Ross Smith. I have quite a bit of information on booth Smith families BUT I still can not link both together. I know everything points that they do.
So I am hoping you may have done more research about them. Oh, Lucille Viola Smith passed last year. her father was Abner Frank Smith son to Samuel. I really want her to see the conclusion to her family. Anyway I"ll keep looking for an answer if you can not help.

Thank You:
Ry Hudson

Frank M. "FM" Crouch Photo
I have posted an overview photo of the Crouch family plot to Frank's memorial. His grave is unmarked according to cemetery records. There are five other Family members who are buried in this plot as well. Willie Mae Crouch does not have a marker either.

Hello. Cemetery covers several hundred acres.
Only way to find grave is with the location, by section and lot number.
Cemetery RECORDS ROOM will provide info. Very helpful to family/friends. Their phone is 713-928-5141.

Joel Morgan Fletcher & Gertys Johnson
I saw a note you left for your cousin Joel Morgan Fletcher 1892-1959. I'm tracing the Johnson lines down because Gerty's parents Cary and Sallie were related to my mother.

Are you aware of any children of J. Morgan & Gertys? I've found a Sarah Jane Fletcher born 30 Jul 1923 but can't find documentation past high school for her. Appreciate any leads or help.
