James Newton Penley was born in 1831, the 11th child of Epaphroditus (Epp) and Temperance Penley of Scott County, Virginia, he died 3 Jun 1893 in Drayden, Lee Co., Virginia. Very little is know about his childhood. About 1850/51 James married Louisa Patience Hood. She was born, 15 Sep 1833, in Green Co., Tennessee to Dutton Hood born 27 Jan 1811 in Virginia died 09 Apr 1890, Sullivan Co., TN. and Nancy Lane, born 1810, in Tennessee, died Jun 1850, Sullivan Co., TN. James was a circuit Methodist Minister. The influence of his father-in-law, Dutton Hood who was also a Methodist Minister, probably played an important part of why James became a minister. He ministered in Scott and Lee Counties, Virginia as well as Estell and Wolfe Counties, Kentucky. James and Louisa had nine children: Siramanda, Mary, Nancy, Sally, Ira, John, James Louisa and Alfred

1887-1946, by I. E. Quastler, Copyright (C) 2003.

James Samuel Harrison Penley was born and raised in Rose Hill, Lee Co., Virginia. He married there and lived there. His two oldest daughters were born in Rose Hill. When times got tough in Rose Hill, he decided to move to Horton, Kansas where his older brother, John, had already gone with his family to work for the railroad shops. Sometime between 1912 and 1915 Sam moved with his family to Horton, Kansas to go to work for the CRI&P Railroad (Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway, later to become known as the Rock Island Railroad) as a laborer at the shops. Dad operated a band saw in the RIP Track department (Repair-In-Place) of the Rock Island Railroad Shops (also called the CRI & P Shops). Dad also worked at nights sometimes as an Engineer in the Boiler Room.

It was a common practice for many of the railroad workers to live on nearby farms as a matter for survival. It was a common occurrence for the railroad in Horton to have a slack period between Christmas and March or April and the workers were fortunate if they could get work at the shops two weeks out of the month and they augmented their income by farming and growing much of their own food by gardening and having their own fruit trees. Many raised their own farm stock which they would butcher for their winter meat supply.

We moved from Horton to four miles west of Horton on the Jake Winterschietz farm on Thanksgiving Day 1919, which was very near the Kickapoo Indian Reservation. It was a bitter cold day and it was snowing as Helen can remember being wrapped up in blankets to keep warm and stopping by the Tony Ketter farm on their way out to warm up. The Ketter’s became wonderful neighbor’s. Jake lived in Horton and Dad leased the farm from him on shares with each getting a portion of the crops that were harvested. We three girls attended the grade school on the Kickapoo Reservation where the teacher's children and we were the only white children in the school of about fifty students.

It was on this farm that, LaRue Cadue, an Indian friend of Dad's, whom he hired to work on the farm from time to time, saved my mother's life. One day mother was coming out of the house and LaRue yelled at her to stop and don't move. He then ran to the barn and fetched a hoe and went up to the steps of the porch and pulled out a coiled rattlesnake and commenced to kill it with the hoe.

While on this farm, Sam had built a bridge across the creek. One day a very heavy rain came up and threatened the destruction of the bridge because of logs and brush jamming up under the bridge. Sam tried to clear the logs and brush away and was knocked into the flooded creek. He was knocked under by a log and was struggling desperately to stay above water when Mae, Ethel and Helen all formed a lifeline with Mae in the creek, Ethel in the middle and Helen on the creek bank. Mae grabbed her Dad by the arm and the three girls struggled and pulled Sam from the flooded creek. We lived at the Winterschietz place for three years. Then in October or November of 1922, Dad hired Uncle Jim Pace to husk corn for him as he was on strike at the Rock Island Shops.

"In 1922 and 1923, the community was badly frayed by a national railroad strike and its repercussions. On July 1 of 1922, 546 shop workers belonging to the six federated shop crafts, the machinists, boilermakers, carmen, sheet metal workers, blacksmiths, and electricians, walked off their jobs. They were protesting, among other things, the railroads' practice of "farming out" work, the federal Railroad Labor Board's approval of a wage reduction, and the end of overtime pay on Sundays and holidays. The railroads said they were in financial trouble and needed the changes. Nationally, 11,000 shop craft employees left their jobs over these issues. In Horton, all but a few workers joined the strike." ...Prairie Railroad Town.

Dad's lease was up on the 15th of March the following year so Jake took sealed bids and he opened them the day before they was supposed to have been. He claimed Nevins was the lowest bid but Dad always said Jake was a crook over the deal. We moved from the Winterschietz farm on March 15, 1922 when June (Virginia) was only six days old (June was born 9 March 1922). That spring mom took araciplis.

In 1928 times got tough in Kansas and Sam moved his family to Wickliff, Ohio to work for a brick making company there taking the brick in and out of the ovens. A year later and things had gotten hard in Ohio and Sam decided to move his family back to Kansas.

Sam returned to farming in Whiting, Kansas on the Conklin farm in the Mt. Pleasant District. Mr. Conklin lived in Whiting. They remained in Whiting until February 17, 1937 when Sam returned to Ohio again for work. Things were again hard in Kansas the dust bowl years had taken its toll. Mae, Ethel and Grant with their families had already left for Ohio and June was still single and living at home with her parents. Sam stayed behind for a little while trying to persuade his daughter Helen and her new husband Ted Scherer to go to Ohio also. Ted had his mind made up that he wasn't going there because he already had a job managing the Cold Storage plant in Nortonville and all of his family was here in Kansas. Sam gave up trying to convince Ted to go to Ohio and he went to Ohio leaving Helen here alone except for her younger sister, Bonnie, who was buried in the Horton Cemetery, and her grandaunt, Julia Harris, who lived in Horton at the time. Julia Harris was Sam's aunt. Sam and Martha settled in New Lyme, Ohio and lived there until Martha's death on October 11, 1947.

After Martha's death Sam sold the house in New Lyme, Ohio and moved to Jefferson, Ohio where he bought another home. There he married his second wife Elsie. Elsie was not a pleasant person and she didn't get along with any of the Penley's. When Sam's cancer came back on him after five years Elsie took off and left Sam behind alone to fend for himself. It was Sam's children who took care of him in those final days …not his wife. Sam died October 12, 1961, in Jefferson, Ohio. Sam and Martha are both buried in the Brownsville Cemetery in New Lyme, OH. Sam and Martha had six children, Mae, Ethel, Helen, Bonnie, Grant, Virginia.
