Wettin Castle by the Saale River in Saxony-Anhalt, The Penners lived in Neu, Dessen , Saxony-Anhalt by some accts... other accts. say Neu-Dessen, Neumark, Prussia. (Now Poland). Since I have been unable to find Neu-Dessen in Saxony-Anhalt, I think the Poland location is probably the correct one. It has been known by various names now, Chelmark being one.
