Fayette County, PA (Uniontown) Renninger

Hello anyone,
My father was Glenn Aldine Renninger of Uniontown, PA. His father was Irving Jacob Renninger. I only know Irving's parents names were Charles Renninger and Mary Brown.
Can anyone help with more information? There has been a "dark family secret" that I have heard about since I was a child. Supposedly Mary Brown became pregnant by Thomas A. Hendricks who was Vice President at the time under Grover Cleveland. He was married and did not take any responsibility for Mary and their unborn child. She met Charles Renninger and they were married. My grandfather died before I was born and I couldn't ask him any questions concerning this geneological twist in our family. No one else seems to know very much either. Is there anyone out there who can help with any information? I would greatly appreciate any enlightenment to this curious part of my family's history.

Thanks,

Gail Renninger-Brown
