- Full Name:
- William Moneypenny 1
William Moneypenny married Mary Jane Kenney in Northern Ireland.
William and Mary Jane were the original Moneypenny immigrants. They hailed from what is now Northern Ireland. They are said to have come from Macquiresbridge, County Fermanagh. They probably arrived in 1794 or 1795 and slowly made their way to what is now Lewis County, WV. The first documented evidence of their presence in WV is 1803.

This is the first of my fathers family in America. The paper I found on Footnote shows he was here in 1798.
