Are we dealing with Lutherans or Jews here?  This might make a difference
in helping us determine what is going on with the name.

Penius could be an attempt to sound out a Hebrew name, more commonly
known as Pinkus

I took a brief look at the WorldConnect database at rootsweb and see both
Jews and (apparently) Lutherans.  Try:

Is this the family (or part of it) that Carol is referring to?

If there is a handwritten name Pensius, I would be interested in knowing
what the original record looked like.  How (in what shape) was that first
S written?
