I saw your post at the Ancestry site Actually, the PENLANDs I know of started out in America in Buncombe County (1700s) then moved around. There is a family Historical Society that can help you. Contact Norleen Barta Penland at norleenpb@AOL.com She is the current newsletter editor and can give you some great contacts. Good luck!

For Laurie wanting info, Laurens, S.C.

Laurie, my sister and I are just starting out on our search. Our father was Ludie C. Penland, Jr. and was born in Whitmire, SC. Our grandfather, L.C. Penland, Sr. was born in Laurens County, SC. They are both deceased. We believe that our grandfather's family did come from North Carolina. His mother's name was Lillie and his father's name was Turner Penland. We believe that our family is of Native American origin but are unsure of it is Cherokee. Any information that you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much!
