Beulah Land -- The House of Pennell

by Truman Pennell Keesey

Book -- 5 Volumes ~ 650 pages :  Family history of one branch of

Pennells of Maine

Forebears of Edgar Llewellyn Pennell b. 1869 January 31

and his granddaughter Marjorie May Pennell Keesey b. 1923

Forebears from 1066 until 1984 

This is the tale of a branch of the Pinels of the Isle of Jersey and their forebears, their lives and their times. 

I have almost fulfilled the writin of the first volume this book, and look to the writin to be fulfilled about May of 2016.

It is one, of the most wonderful books of history ever to have been read.

As you read it, you will exclaim to yourself, "Merciful Heavens!  Never before have I read such a wonderful, entertainin, and interestin book!  Surely this is the book for me!  I shall finance the printin of it."

Walter Johnson Pennell  Captain USN 1892 - 1955.  Walter is told of in a small way in this book, but his bigger tale is in The Book of Seamen.  It is not in this book for that the book is already too big.

Marjorie May Pennell Keesey 1923 - 1984

To print and to ship one hundred of this book will take an estimated more than six thousand dollars USA.  That is a simple hardbound book.  A fancier book would cost more, of course.

That would put the wholesale price at about sixty dollars.  Then the retail would be over a hundred and twenty dollars.

To lower the wholesale price more of them would have to be printed, and the total cost would be higher.

If you are a prosperous kinsman, then offer to pay for the printin, and get back your tokens of trade in books or in returns from the sale thereof.
