Penny or Penney Family
Hi all,
Looking for some answers I hope.
My grandfather was Sylvester Harold Penny born in Musgravetown, Bonavista Bay. His father was Edward Penny from Keels. His father was Isaac Penny also from Keels and married Mary Keel. His father was Gearge Penny born in Wimborne Minister, Dorset, England and he married Mary Mesh. Atleast that is as far as I have gotten so far and I'm not even sure if this information is even right. So any help or hints or any information would be helpful.
