Information on the Benninghoff - Penticuff - Bennikoff - Penticoff - Pentico line

> John V. Pennycuff 1854–1928  man in picture above. 
> son of
> Jacob Pennycuff 1806–1880

> son of
> Philip Jacob Benninghoff 1740–1826 
BIRTH 30 JANUARY 1740 • Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany 
DEATH 1826 • Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, USA


This gentleman is from our John Penticoff, Penticuff, Pentico's c 1800, brother Jacob b 1806.

Most of the Pentico's that are on Facebook are from John so far I have learned. Probably not all because I have not asked them all. 

This man has been looked for by a Tennessee Pentico for several years. Now which file did  I 
put his data in under Pentico to notify him we may have found his lost family members.

DNA helped him find me some years ago because our son took the Ydna test with FTDNA.com.

The name we are learning has many variants. Pennycope, is another Pennicoast may be another.

Many of this family still live in Pennsylvania.   

If  you are part of this family we would love to hear from you. I recall that the Phillip Jacob had 8 to 10 children.
