I would like information, any and all, about a male infant born to a Mary Maxine Pennington, on January 8, 1925 in Appalachia, VA at her parents home, Wesley and Easter Robinette. Mary Maxine Pennington is my grandmother, she was born on April 9, 1902 and married an Estel Pennington on January 28,1923. There is a record of a stillborn Pennington baby born during August 1923. I can't find out anything else, if Estel passed away, divorced my grandmother, I only know that she then had an ongoing affair with my grandfather, Geroge Sullin Farmer who was married. My grandfather got divorced in June of 1925, then he and my grandmother went to TN, got married on June 25, 1925 and moved to Eccles, WV. My grandfather was a coalminer in Wise County, VA and in Eccles, WV. They went on to have 10 more children, my mother being one of them. My mother and various aunts and uncles always said they were told by my grandfather that the male infant born on January 8, 1925 was called Edward and that he died at the age of 6 months of age. I cannot find any death record of this male infant anywhere under the name of Robinette, Pennington or Farmer. Can any one out there in VA or WV help me? I would love to know where he is buried, or maybe he was given up for adoption??? Thank you, Jackie Phillips, Philpsfarm@aol.com
