Hi April,

Well to start off my Pannell's or Pennell's etc. are Sarah and I think Tom Pannell from Campbell Co. their daughter (my grgr grandmother)Martha E. Pannell married Nelson Henry also of Campbell Co.

Sarah Henry the daughter of Martha and Nelson married Silas Woodruff, son of Wyatt and Sarah Ware Woodruff of Amherst Co.

So my names are: Pannell, Henry, Woodruff and Ware. I know there are alot of Pannells and yes the spelling has changed a couple of times, but it looks like they finally setteled on Pannell. Also the name Walton looks familiar, but i'm not sure where i've seen it from. I'll let you know.
