Biography -- (Findagrave.com):

JOHN PENCE was born in Fayette County, Ohio, April 28, 1823, the son of George C. and Sarah Pence, and came with his parents to this township in the fall of 1836, and worked for his father till he reached the age of twenty- three, when his father deeded him eighty acres of the old home place. For the next five years, he improved his own farm, and worked out for others at intervals; in October, 1851, he married Sarah Strein, a native of Allen County, Ind., and daughter of John and Maria Strein. The father of this lady was born on the Atlantic Ocean when his parents were on their passage to this country from Ireland, and her mother was probably a native of Pennsylvania. By his marriage, Mr. Pence became the father of three children, viz.: Joseph M., Sarah C. (now Mrs. Swigart), and Ellen (now Mrs. J. J. Baker). Mrs. Pence died in October, 1864, and March 12, 1865, Mr. Pence married Mary J. Hazen, a native of Ohio, and daughter of Isaac and Rachel (Lafaver) Hazen. To this second union were born four children-Mary A., Nettie J., Virgil J. and Laura A. In the fall of 1852, Mr. Pence sold his farm and moved to Jones County, Iowa, and thence to Hardin County, stopping one year in each, then returned to this township, and bought back his old farm, which he has increased to 320 acres of well-improved land. For twenty years he and wife have been members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and in politics he holds to Republican opinions.

Michael Pence

One of the first pioneers to Adams County

Drowned in the Ohio River when horses bolted from ferry while attempting to cross.

MICHAEL PENCE appears to be the Michael Bentz, son of Michael Bentz, who was born or baptized on 12 Mar 1738, according to the records of Trinity Lutheran Church at New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; died 25 Dec 1799 in Adams County, Ohio, drowning while attempting to cross the Ohio River when his horses bolted from the ferry, with inventory of his estate being returned 17 Jan 1800 in Adams County

Married Sybilla (Isabella, Ibby, Civie) Frye 29 Dec 1767 in Berks County, Pennsylvania (she is called the daughter of Henry Frye of Maidencreek Twp, Berks County

She remarried to John Davidson 6 Oct 1803 in Adams County and later sought and obtained separate maintenance

"Michael Bens" is called the son of Michael of Earl Town, Lancaster County, on the record of his marriage and his father may have been the Michael Bentz, age 27, who came on the ship Loyal Judith in 1732, but no evidence has been found to show that this is the case

Michael Bentz of Earl Town apparently is the one who married Anna Elizabeth Huber (Hoover) 10 May 1737 in Lancaster County; Michael (Jr.) moved to Shenandoah County, Virginia, in the 1770s and then about 1796 he moved with his family to Adams County, where he was among the earliest settlers.

Some of the children of Michael and Sybilla (Frey) Pence are listed in the records of Old Pine Church in Shenandoah County, Virginia.

He was buried in December 1799 at Hopewell Cemetery, Sprigg Twp., Adams Co., OH, Findagrave #90653706.
