Kuntz Henrich, Schaeffern Susanna, 1783 Nov 12 1783--Balthasar Kuns son, of Rockingham Co., Georg Schaeffer's daughter, of Loudon Co.

We do not know who Catharina is but she might be Henry's sister.

We are descended from Balthazar Kuns m. Catherine Unknown and his son Henry Koontz b. abt 1763 m. Susanna Schaeffer/Schaffer/Shaffer.

We know that Balthasar lived in Frederick Co., VA and Brock's Gap, Rockingham Co., VA. These 1783 marriage records were found at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Frederick Co., Maryland. We are wondering now if there are Koontz ties to Loudoun Co. (where Susan Shaffer's father, George, lived),or Frederick Co., Maryland (where Henry and Susan were married).

Thank you, Cheryl Bloomfield
Loudoun Co. was taken from Fairfax Co.?

There are many Koontz spelling variations.
