My husbands 3rd gr grandfather, Jesse Kurtz was from Pa. My first record of him is in Somerset County, Pa in 1840, though he married a PA woman in 1836 so was presumably in PA in 1836. Prior to that time, I can find no record of him. I suspect he came from the Lancaster county area, though this may not be true. His birthdate is c 1812. I have never seen a middle initial, nor any indication of siblings or his parents' names. According to my records, he spent the rest of his life in Somerset County (mostly Elk Lick Township). He is last found in the 1880 census of that county living with Samual Folk and his family. Any ideas of where to look for records, family, ANYTHING! Any ideas will be appreciated.
