Turpenning-5 and Teerpenning-23 appear to represent the same person because: Same person. Teerpenning is the name that this family was predominantly recorded under at this time period and is on this man's earliest known record that gives him a last name. Teerpenning-23 is project-protected to protect the LNAB spelling.

I've not previously seen the Turpenning spelling for this family. It must be a modern spelling. Where does it come from?

What was the source for the information that a couple of Dirk Terpenning's children were born in West Virginia and that another one was born in Herkimer County? Migration on that scale is unlikely in the first half of the 18th century, and its unlikely that either of those areas was ready for settlement then. Also, other sources (such as ) have all of the children being born in Ulster County, New York.
