The "Lentz Wife of Jesse Calvin Conwill" is Amanda Jane Lentz Conwill. She should be your G.G.Grandmother maybe off by +or- one G. Amanda is the Daughter of Henry Jackson and Christina Parker Lentz. Henry Jacksons Father is Samuel Lentz b.1793, NC. Samuel's Father is John Henry Lentz b.1753 Union District South Carolina. The Lentz Family was in The Reveloutionary War. They were from Germany. The name has been spelled many ways as well. So have most of the people who came here from their homeland. They brought with them their Accent. Thus their name was written down the way it sounded to the person taking the name or in most cases the Census. For example the French name Cartrett was written down as Cartrite, or later Cartright, or Cartwright. My Sir Name Taylor was spelled many different ways because my first ancestor here was from Scotland and spoke with a heavy accent. It was written as Tiller, Tailer, Teller, you get the idea. So the Conwell/Conwill should not be an issue. I am related to the Ingle Family who came from Germany as well.
