George & Nancy Foltz/Fultz Twin Twp. 1820-1874
Posted by: Arlene Fultz (ID *****6952) Date: December 08, 2003 at 14:49:42
  of 1613

Hi,

I'm looking for confirmation of the parents of George Foltz/Fultz/Folse/Fulse who was in the Ross Co., OH Federal Census from 1820 through 1860 (died 1868), Twin Twp., Bourneville PO. He and his wife Nancy Ryan are supposed to be buried in Bourneville Methodist Church Cemetery. Family tradition says he was the son of George Fultz and Eva Maria Rugle of Shenandoah Co., VA. The ages, children's names, etc. all match. However, I just noticed that on the censuses, George is said to be born in Germany. My George wasn't, and neither was his father, but his grandfather was from Germany. German was spoken at home until the mid 1800s.

Children of George Foltz/Fultz (1790-1868) and Nancy Ryan (1798-1874) who were m 1814 at Woodstock, Shenandoah Co., VA:
1. George Washington b 1812 m Abby Huff
2. Catharine b 1815 m James Myers
3. John b 1819 m Honora Campbell
4. James (1821-1837)
5. Rebecca b 1823 m Abraham Summers/Somers
6. Thomas b 1825 m Drusilla Moomaw
7. William b 1828 m1 Sarah Tripp m2 E. C. Dugan m3 Mary Purdham m4 Emma Mae Purdham
8. Hannah b 1830
9. Henry Edgar b 1830 m Elzabeth Hatfield
10. Mary b 1837 m Reuben Summers/Somers
11. Phoebe A. b 1839 m Joseph Smith
