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" 1819.
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.
