I dont have a william on my list mabye I should have another look at the records. The children of John Pentony and Bridget ?? are as I have them,:-Michael B. 1811, Matthew B. 1814, John B. 1815, Mary B. 1817 and Julia b. 1820. I have as yet not established details of Michael or Julia. Did they marry and if so whom?? John married Rose
McKeon of High St. Trim and I know that they lived and worked on a large estate At Ballinter,5 miles from Trim. These lands are now a well known golf course.They had two children that I know of , Bridget B. 1843 and Eugene Paul B. 1844. Reading through the message board I am most surprised to see so many people enquiring after the Pentonys from scattered locations throught the world. Some even mention that thgeir ancestors came from France. Well it seems that they are right for I have a printed copy of the history of the RePenteny, DePenteny, Penteny and Pentony family charted up to 1821 by a family member. It is a short publication and I have photocopied it and I will send it on by snail mail to you. Mabye you can get it to some of your American colleagues in genealogy with aa interest in the family. I have also made some copies of the 1821 census for Rathnally showing the people mentioned above being at that location in April 1821.
If Matthew son of Matthew was born in 1850 in Ireland what year did they aarive in New York ?? It seems that they were like thousands more driven out as a result of the ongoing famine which lasted until 1851. Be the way if you ever want a great insight into the famine its cause and it effects read " Emigrants and Exiles " by Kerby A. Miller. It is the difinitive one. More later
