My Jennings line can be traced back to Samuel Jennings, born 1783 in
Chester County, PA and married to Sarah Smock (born 1795 in Fayette County,
PA) in Ohio in 1813. Their son Samuel H. Jennings was born 1823 in
Muskingum County, Ohio. The family later moved on to Owen County, Indiana,
where most of their kids married. Sons Samuel H. and Elmore Y. Jennings
moved on west to settle in Bremer County, Iowa.
