With most of his family tree leading to fairly recent Irish and German immigrants, Mike Pence currently has no known famous kin. However his Pence ancestral line currently has a few brickwalls on it. This line reportedly leads back to Michael Bentz (family surname later changed to Pence) who was born circa 1705. If correct, this line may lead to some famous kin.
There is a book published in 2013 at the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis by Betty L. Warren titled Genealogical Information of the Pence – Cawley Ancestors. It is a genealogical history of the paternal and maternal ancestors of Gov. Mike Pence. This book may include additional ancestors for Mike Pence. Unfortunately, the Indiana State Library has the only copy in a library according to WorldCat.
