I'm searching for the ancestors of my great grandfather Oliver H. Lantz who appears to have spent most of his life in Jefferson County. My grandfather was William M. Lantz. I'm also at the brick wall on Lucinda (VanLear) Wyncoop, the mother of Oliver's wife Rachel. The following information is provided:
3. Work family history, twelve generations of Works in America , 1690-1969, compiled by Von Gail Hamilton, published Par k City, Utah, 1969
, page 175. "RACHEL WYNCOOP - d/o JOHN WORK and LUCINDA (VAN LEAR) WYNCOOP (211); b 8 Oct 1852; md 4 July 1869 to OLIVER H. LANTZ of Jefferson Co., Pa. who was b 30 Mar 1849. Both d 1923 and are bur Lutheran Chapel Cemetary at Coral, Pa. They resided at Stanton, Pa. Children:
