Query: Peter Blackford Lennen, Hamilton County

            I have been attempting to trace my Lennen Family lineage. I have managed to trace the following Lennen Family Line to Peter Blackford Lennen and his wife Mary Ann (Ford) Lennen.

            Peter was born around 1821. Some indications are that he was born in Maryland, USA. Other sources indicate Indiana as his birthplace. Mary was also born around 1821. Some sources indicate her birthplace as Maryland as well. They were married in Hamilton County, IN, around 29 March 1842.

            Peter died in service (Union Army) during the Civil War, on 10 February 1863, in Grand Junction, Tennessee. Mary died in March 1897, in Hamilton County, IN. Peter was buried in Corinth National Cemetery, Alcorn, MS. Mary was buried in the Woodward-Gwynn Cemetery, Hamilton County, IN. They had seven children: Benjamin (1843), Sarah (1844), Ann (1848), Martha (1851), Mary (1852), Peter B. (1855), James Madison (1859).

            Any information welcome. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
