I am a descendant of Henry Pencil/Pensyl who lived in Hamilton Township, Monroe County starting circa 1800. I have been trying to find his baptismal record. My family believes that he is the son of Henry Pencel/Bensil and Sallie ? who lived in Wyoming Valley from 1772 to 1790. This family came from Lower Smithfield, PA prior to their move to Wyoming Valley. In Lower Smithfield, Henry (the assumed father) was in the militia in 1764 and there is a Johannes Bensil on the tax records who may be this Henry's father. Where have other genealogists found baptismal records of families living in Wyoming Valley?
