Pentz/Pence from Germany
Posted by: Sharon Garrison (ID *****7568) Date: March 10, 2010 at 00:58:46

I'm related to Daniel Pentz/Pence and Catherine Chase.

I have that he was born in 1780 in Maryland, and
died in 1819 in Greene County, Pennsylvania.

Catherine was born about 1796 Pennsylvania; and supposedly
died in Ohio.

My understanding from a second cousin is that this Pentz
line came from Germany and the original name was Benz/Bentz.

I know that Daniel's children changed the name from Pentz
to Pence. Children are: George 1808; Catherine 1811;
Elizabeth 1813; Susan 1814; David Peter 1816; Daniel 1818
which I've been told his first name is Robert; Mary "Polly"

I have that George married Mary Guffney in 1835; but her
last name may have been McGuffney - not sure.

If you have any information on this Daniel Pentz/Pence,
I'd be interested. Would really like to tear down this
brick wall.
