Thank you very much for the research. I really need to get some pictures of these people. I suspect that William Elmer Penry left Illinois in the early to mid twenties and for some reason assumed the name John H Elmore, whom he probably knew. He started another family in Mississippi whom he left in 1930 to return to Illinois. I have a 95 yr. old aunt who knew and remembers this John H Elmore. I would love to be able to show her a picture of him. According to her, he was tall with reddish, wavy hair.
