1. Placing the Marker
We placed and dedicated this Memorial Marker near the entrance to Old Mulkey Meetinghouse State Historic Park, where Hannah Boone Stewart Pennington's remains are located at her gravestone. That weekend was the First Monroe County Heritage Festival, and the Mayor, Director of the Park, and city officials welcomed all the descendants of Hannah from 6 states to the Festival, dinner, and we were given a Certificate to First Families to the county.
