Details from a descendant's research (http://web.archive.org/web/20090430071209/http://webpages.charter.net/pepbaker/trek.htm):
Wyand, Sr., the last born child of Wyant (Weiant I) and Neeltje (Nelly) SELLEN PENNEBAKER, was born July 30, 1763 in Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County, PA, settled in Nelson County, KY in 1787 when he had a Revolutionary War land grant, as an assignee of Jacob Myers, surveyed. He married Precious RUBY (1767-1834) there January 27, 1788. (Signature from 1788 marriage bond.) On January 8, 1793 he sold his 400 acre farm to his brother Frederick. Wyand and Precious had property in 9 different Kentucky counties and finally settled in Hickman County, Kentucky about 1833. He died there March 7, 1852 from an infection caused by kidney stones - cause of death cited as "gravel." Precious died on October 31, 1834. It not known where she was buried, but probably in Hickman County, KY. since they arrived there circa 1832. Wyand and Precious had 10 children:
William H(arrison) (1788-1874), m. 1818, Lucinda FINLEY, Ellender/Ellen (1790-1870+), m. 1812, John HUSS, Jane (1793-1834), m. 1814, Samuel Van Meter RHOADS, Samuel W. (1796-1835), m. 1819, Sarah A. "Sallie" FINLEY, Mary "Polly" (1798-1859), m. 1817, William CLEAVER, Mary Ann (1800-1880+), m. 1831, Seth YARBOROUGH, Elizabeth (1802-?), m. 1821, Conrad HUSS, John (1805-1894+), m. abt. 1828, Martha "Patsy" HUSS, Nancy (1807-1857), m. 1837, David H. HARRY, Wyand, Jr. (1810-?), m. 1834, Martha "Patsy" HALL.
William Harrison, who married the charming red-headed Lucinda FINLEY in 1818, is the progenitor of many West Coast Pennebakers. Samuel W., who married Lucinda's sister Sarah FINLEY, is the progenitor of our Mississippi branch. The many descendants of Wyand and Precious RUBY PENNEBAKER have consistently maintained the PENNEBAKER surname. Wyand apparently used Wyand as his given name as early as 1785. In a Hickman County, KY indenture on September 26, 1843 the parties were Wyand PENNEBAKER, Jr. and Wyand PENNEBAKER, Sr. Wyand, Jr. had property in Clinton, Hickman Co, Ky in the 1840-1850 period. Wyand, Sr. lived with this son as shown in 1850 Hickman County census. The Wyand given name was carried down to my great-grandfather and grandfather.
Wyand Pennebaker, Sr. deeds property to grandchildren (children of Wyand Pennebaker, Jr.), Mar 29, 1850, Delivered: Dec 16, 1850. Source Hickman Co, KY, FHL Film 0321369, page 82, Hickman Co, Ky Deeds, Vols. G-H, 1845-1853. This deed shows several pertinent facts: the name Wyand Pennebaker (Junior and Senior) is used, names of Wyand's grandchildren (children of Wyand, Jr.) and wife of Wyand, Jr. are shown and Wyand signs document with "his mark", which is first known occurrence of "his mark" signature - probably indicates his infirmity as he died two years later.
