Pence Family Chronicles
Hi Glen,
I see your Pence Chronicles blog online and think it's a great thing that you are honoring and continuing your dad's work. I've been researching my Pence roots thru his work online and have traced them back to Henry Pence in the Revolutionary War. I'm trying to get documentation that proves the lineage to become a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. I'm hoping maybe you have access to the two missing links in my documentation. I am missing a few generations to link from Conway Pence (25 Dec 1816- 27 July 1863) already in the DAR Registry. Iím looking for documentation to link Conway Pence to his son Allen Pence and then to his son John W Pence. Iím thinking it could be done with two documents, and perhaps you have them in your databases?
Iím able to find their links online through your Dad's work on the Genealogy site links below, but Daughters of the American Revolution require documents such as birth/death certificates to confirm. Is this something you are able to help with? (Conrad is listed in the DAR directory but no descendants are listed.) (Iíd like a document showing Conrad as Allenís Father) (Iíd like a document showing Allen as Johnís father.) I have Johnís death certificate, but there is a question mark in the Fatherís Name block (his daughter Lillian didnít know it).
I requested vital records from the state but they donít have anything before 1916 so they mailed my request back to me.
I've just joined this findagrave site and see my dad, Jimmy Funell is here and have added some suggested edits from what I know. I can see this will be something I can add to from my information.
Iíd sincerely appreciate any help you can give with this request,

Hi Glenn,
I just got back from a birding trip. I won't be able to get to your question for a few days, but I will get back to you.

Isaac and Susanna Pence
Thank you for maintaining the memorials for them--also my 4th G grandparents through daughter Lydia who married David Goble Jr.
One item on Susanna Memorial-- it states she died in May-- while the headstone states Mar.
I have a copy of their marriage and it is very hard to decipher! I have seen various spellings of the name and wonder exactly which one I should use! Your note about Ellescheidt is intriguing and wonder what else you know about her family?
I think Pence was originally Bentz?
Would love to communicate with you on this family history. Please email me at

I don't know what happened, I get my info from cemetery transcripts, and I don't live in Canada so have no way to know for sure where they are buried. I went ahead and deleted the records I had created. Thank you for letting me know.

Have a nice day!

Issac Pence
I was searching my family tree and found this site with the picture of the tombstone. Issac was the 5x grandfather on my mother's side. he was married to Sueannah and had a son name Samuel Pence who married Mary Davis, they had a daughter named Lydia Pence who married Cyrus Nash. They had a son named James Henry Nash who married Mary Susie Pence and they had a son named Glenn Nash who married my grandmother Gretchen Brockett. Wow. Pretty cool. thx for info on this site I didn't have. Thx Phyllis Cormier

Yes, that sounds like it would be it.

If you look at a map of Blandinsville, you'd go north on E 200th street (this street going south is Main St). Turn left on N 2100th over to E 100th. Turn right and then turn left on Blackhawk Road. Wesley Chapel is along this road. (It turns into Monmouth road that goes on into LaHarpe). I hope that helps.

This is my great-grandmother Alice Jane (Moore) Bell's younger brother. I think I have a few articles from the LaHarpe newspaper on the accident. Also a possible photo from the funeral. Do you by chance have a photo of him? Please e-mail at
