My great great grandfather eloped from Co Cavan, Ireland to New York with a lady bearing the surname, according to family tradition, Smallpenny. Since there is no such surname name to my knowledge, I have been wondering whether her surname was in fact Halfpenny. What may be significant is that we are sure that the lady's first name was Sarah and that she named a daughter, my grandmother, Harriett (specifically with the double -t.)
