They have provided the club with the following.


This is a picture of Charles Pennock and his second wife Mary Scarlett. The back of the photo has "Uncle Charley and Aunt Mary" written on the back of it. Michael Wittich (a member of the Pennock family) believes it was taken by his grandfather Horace Scott. His father, Dr. Samuel H. Scott, was married to Annie Scarlett, the sister of C. J. Pennock's wife. The picture is taken on the porch of "Wake Robin", the cottage that C. J. Pennock and Dr. S. H. Scott built together in 1910 on Lake Mokoma in Laporte PA. C. J. Pennock was the president of the Lake Mokoma Company which had been formed in 1908 to take over from a previous company to improve the lake and sell lots around it for the development of summer cottages.
