Pennemore or Parramore??

Regarding Thomas Fain, fifth son of Nicholas & Elizabeth (Taylor) Fain, born in 1759, in battle of King's Mt., married about 1781 to Mary Pennemore of Ga. They lived near Savannah, Ga. Their children were Mathew, Rebecca, Lavinia, Mary, Clara, Vinsia, Thomas, Nancy, and Levisia.

Can anyone confirm through verifiable documentation the correct spelling of Thomas Fain's wife's last name? Two publications, of which I have copies, list it as... Pennemore. However, I've seen where some researchers have it listed as, Parramore, and have provided pedigrees for the Parramore family line. Needless to say, this confuses the situation for those of us with limited access to a large library source on this family's genealogy.

My family descends from Lavinia Fain and her husband, William McMullen. Any help would, of course, be greatly appreciated, especially if the pedigree for Mary Pennemore (Parramore) can be provided.

Thank you for your time and information.
