Exciting Family News---- Pentico Side ie Penticoff- Benninghoff

 Family News Pentico- Penticoff- Penticuff- Benninghoff

 Yesterday, a cousin in Iowa posted a picture of Fred's Grandfather making hay in 1923.

  Fred said he remembers he came by in a car once and tossled the top of his head and he was small.
  He has no other recollection of him ever. No idea what he looked like  or who he really was.

  It was very hard to see Grandad Frank Pentico's face with him on the machinery in the field.
  Today cousin Dick Thomas, shared a picture of this gentleman full face.  Amazing, totally amazing
  how much my husband resembles his Grandfather.  I am sure the children will see the resemblance

  A synopsis of his family:
   His Father was Emmanuel E Pentico, ( a twin) b 21 Jan 1854 Westover, PA  d 1906 Ia
   His Mother was Mary Wiggins
   His Probate records dated 22 Jan 1906,  Boone, Iowa  Case 2132  Probate Vol. 1, 1894-191
   Iowa, Wills and Probate Records, 1758-1997 -

Howard  died in Italy during WW11. 

Our trip to Iowa in 1970, we meet the living siblings of his Father's family. We also  met many cousins.  

Frank and Sarah ultimately parted.  When I met family no one would say where Fred's Grandfather may be. They did not appear to have knowledge.  We knew his Grandmother was gone. Sarah died in 1957. 
 For our children and kin  to see I am sharing this information and the pictures cousin Dick Thomas has shared.  BilliJo was to small to remember the trip and Alan did not yet exist. Ed, Don and Candy you should be able to remember some of the trip. 

                            Franklin Andrew Pentico, 
                            Grandad Art's Father, 
                            Fred, Jim, Mary and Shirley's Grandfather.
