Name: SUSAN PENELOPE KING
Birth: ABT 1771 in Wake Co., NC 1
Death: 12 May 1851 in Trigg Co., KY 1
I believe that she had a brother named George who married Jemima House and one named Presley who married Christina House the daughter of Archibald House, in North Carolina.
We have been led to believe that Penelope's name had been Susan. The name Susan came from the book the Lovell's come to Tennessee by Gordon Lovell. I don't know where he got the name I know in the " History Book of Davidson Co 1880 by Clayton" John C. was mention several times but never was his wife mention. Mr. Lovell also states her father was William King but know I find his name is John T. King.. On the cemetery record it says her father was J T King but the record also states that the stones are not there I do not know where they got their information or who posted it. I will keep searching.
