Peninah Williams


One of a pair of sisters who married Gibbons brothers (Mary Williams married James Gibbons).  There is also an Elizabeth Williams disowned by the Somerset Monthly Meeting for marrying a Gibbons, 4/25/1842, and Peninah did have a sister named Elizabeth--so there may have been three. Peninah was "condemned" for her marriage, 5/29/1837. There was also a Rachel Gibbons who married a Williams in the same MM records and was disowned for it, 2/28/1842--Peninah's younger brothers John and Richard are candidates for this, and there are five other unknown Gibbons siblings, of whom Rachel could be one.
