You are already one generation ahead of me, so I cannot help with your primary question. I am writing this to let you know that just posting the question the way you did has helped someone else!! I stumbled on your message while searching for data on the Ann Gantz who married Daniel Slifer. Now I find that her name was really Nancy Ann, forcing me to go back and re-examine some stones that I have already turned over once.

Is it fair to presume that you got this list of Nicolas' children from estate records??

Is it likely that your Nicolas Gantz was a brother to the David Gantz, born 31st August 1787, who married Eve Fahrney, born 17th October 1793 at Chambersburg, PA?? David's youngest son, Emanuel, born 28th June 1826, married a Margaret Slifer who was probably a daughter of Daniel and Nancy Ann Slifer.
