Spelling variations on her name:  Perlina Penellan, Palina Cary,  Perlina Carey, Perliny Carey, Palina Carey, Pauline Pendleton, Pliney Penalen and Pauline Pendlum.

A search for the surname Penellan found only one family living in Iowa listed in the 1870 census. This is most likely a misspelling of the name. Names similar to Penellan do not appear in or near Madison County Ohio. The surname Pendlan is found in Preble County Ohio with some of the members of that family noted as born in Kentucky.

Out of five of Paulina’s children’s death certificates, 4 note different spellings; Pendleton, Pendlum, Pendlulum and Penalen. Pendlum appears on two of the certificates.
