2012 July: A Visit to Pekin and Lonaconing, Allegany County, Maryland
July of 2012: We traveled with my good friends, Jim and Cel Landen to Pekin and Lonaconing, Allegany County, Maryland looking for some Tennant family history. I set out wanting to know where the Tennant family came from and what it was like there. I was interested to know why they left Maryland for Carbon and Hanna and why they stay in those places even after experiencing what seemed to be a harsh life.. (Bob Leathers)
