Looking for relatives . My grandfather David Penman married Christina in Dunfermline,Fife.
They had my grandma Helen in 1841 there. Any relatives out there?

My husband is a descendant of the Penmans from Fife. Do you have a date of birth for David, or the names of his parents or any of his siblings? I have a Helen born 1841, but her father was William. However, there are a lot of Penmans out there, and we may already have been in contact with someone who knows about David.

My ancestor David Penman, born 21 Feb 1847 in Fife, Scotland; son of David (ca 1803) and Jennie/Jean Duncan (ca 1811), may have had brother George (ca 1842) and Alexander (2 Oct 1856), had sister Sarah Jane (14 May 1849, b. Halbeath, Fife; all emigrated to Pennsylvania about 1866. Any link?

There are quite a few Penmans in Fife. My great grand mother was Grace Penman born in 1854 and daughter of William Penman a coal miner. May be a connection with your ancestor?
