On the 1860 and 1850 census for Warren Co, TN Alfred is there with wife and family and James is in the household.

1860 census Warren Co, TN. page 432:

Pennington, Josh, 33, b TN - no land/personal 500
" Eliza I, 31, b TN
" Joseph, 14, b TN
" Melenda I., 13, b TN *******
" Sarah, 9, b TN

Page 514, his father???:

Pennington, Josh, 82, b VA
" Sarah, 64, b NC [maybe a second younger wife???]
" Elizabeth, 16, b TN

On the 1850 census the two Josh Penningtons are on the same page.

If you go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect -- -- type in Pennington, Malinda, b 1846, spouse Kirby. There are three people working on this line. It will take you back on her family tree, give you her mother's maiden name, etc. If you want, you can share what you know about Malinda after she married etc.

There is a bio included in two, apparently written by Josh, Sr. Looks like his uncle was Daniel Boone, and someone had asked hims some questions regarding the family.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
