I'm looking for information on John Pindell, born 1754, son of Edward. He was the brother of Thomas that married Elizabeth Mills. My guess is that after Edward disappears from Maryland records after 1768, he took his family to Pennsylvania. At some point Thomas went to Monongalia Co. John must have stayed in PA into the early 1800's because two of his daughters, Elizabeth, born 1794, and Mary, born about 1803, both say on both the 1860 and 1870 censuses that they were born in PA. The only John Pindell I have been able to find in PA is listed in the militia rolls for the eighth regiment of the PA line during the summer of 1778, under Capt. Thomas Cook. I'm assuming this is John, but I have no proof.
John shows up in 1815 in Adams Co., Ohio on the tax list, and again in 1819 and 1823. He's on the 1820 census. These appearances were all in Wayne twp. John married a woman named Mary and had the following children..........
1.James, probably born about 1792, married a woman named Margaret. He died 1840 in Clermont Co., OH. He is on the 1830 census in Clermont Co.
2.Elizabeth, born 1794, married her cousin Gabriel, son of Thomas and Elizabeth.
3.Thomas, born about 1797, died 1845 in Livingston Co., Illinois. He married Hannah Bowman.
4.Mary, born about 1803, married Presley Prickett.
5.David, probably born about 1805, married Katherine Bowman.
John evidently died between 1823 and 1830. His wife Mary, I believe, died between 1840 and 1850. She appears to be on both the 1830 and 1840 censuses living with her daughter, Elizabeth.
In looking for John in the PA militia payroll card index, I DID find a Jacob Pindle/Pendall paid for duty in Washington Co. 1781-83, and a Thomas Pindle of Cumberland Co. in 1778 who was fined 40 pounds for delinquency.
