My paternal grandmother was Gertrude Penton. I believe she was born in New Jersey or Pennsylvalia. She had brothers Charles and Edwin and sister Anna. My grandmother was born in 1885. She died in 1970 in Wildwood, New Jersey, where she had lived sicnce she married frank Godfrey.

Do you know of any family connections? I have learned that a William Penton sailed to NJ on a ship called the 'greyhound' in 1677. He had two sons, William II and John.
Please email me if you know more that would connect my grandmother to ancestors you know about. Thanks!
