Barbara- I think I've corresponded with you before?! You did not give any years for your Martin. Do have any? The one I was searching for was born about 1847. I have found many "Martin" Pirnats, but none of them have been connected to mine.
Also, I am not aware of the surname being "Pender" either, butI am at a brick wall with this, so, who knows?!Could you possibly give me some more information to 'work with'? Thanks for replying!! (you can email me directly)
