In Reply to: WIRTH, WERT, WIRT, WERTZ PA/OH/MI by Jonathan Wert of 273

Hope you see this !!
I know nothing of the Wertz family
except my own Ancestors lived near
them in 1750s and on in Pa.
My Ancestor Johan Phillip Senft
came to America in 1751 and ended up
in York, Pa. He soon married Anna Mary Bens/Bentz and one of their (Pilip B abt 1755) sons left the area. He was a
soldier in the American Rev. and
owned property near his parents in N
Codorus Township, York Co. Pa.
Late 1770s he retured and gave back or sold the John Wertz property, Philip Senft left and did not return. Those
of us who research the Senfts have
searched for years for a record of
his wife Magdenena maidnen name with
no luck. I thought she might be a
daughter of John Wertz, I still, don't know ! This branch of Senft eventually
spelled the name Sinift as they moved
to Washington Co. Maryland, Fairfield/Perry Cos. in Ohio, some Sinifts on to Western Ohio, Van Wert Co., Paulding Co. Etc. and some to Eastern Cos. in Indiana like Allen and some to Gratoit Co., Mi.
It seems very possible they may have
been related back in Pa.
Philip Senft B about 1755, York Pa had
son Jacob B abt 1776, Pa or Maryland
who married Catharine Sain, dau of
Philip of Frederick Co., Maryland and
also moved West to Ohio, and on.
I am wondering if the Sains and Sohns
are the same family ??
Any thoughts on this ?? The name almost
sounds the same, common in Sain family,
first names Peter and Philip.
Lived in same area and and have common
connections to the Senfts.
Thank You
