Your Mary Kurtz is probably the daughter of Melchier Kurtz, a relative of my John George Kurtz. Here they are in 1850:

1850 Chatfield, Crawford Ohio
George Kurtz, 56, farmer, born GER
Dorothy, 54, born GER
Andrew, 27, born GER
Gottlieb, 24, born GER
Catharine 22, born GER
Frances, 26, female, born GER
Christian, 21, born GER
George, 18, born VA
John 16, born OH
Catharine, 14, born OH
Samuel, 3 mos., born OH

Michael Kurtz, 43, farmer, born Ger
Catharine, 41, born GER, born GER
Mary, 10, born PA
Catharine, 7, born OH
John, 6, born OH
Daniel, 4, brn OH
Gottlieb, 2, Born OH

J. G. and Dorothy, as well as Melchier and Catharina, are all buried in Brenner Cemetery in Crawford County. It is a small cemetery, which enabled me to photograph it in its entirety, which can be seen here:

I am not sure how Melchier and John George are related, but I am fairly certain that they are somehow relatives, brothers or cousins perhaps. Hope this helps at least a little bit!
