I am searching for the origin of my earliest known relative Johannes Wertz 1783-1861 married Catarina ______. Adult life spent in Northumberland Co., PA. His known children are Jacob, Johannes, Samuel, & Catharine. There was a Sarah Wertz, deceased, m. John Tschopp in his orphan's court document. I have no documentation as to how they were related. ?sister, unknown daughter? Needless to say, your John Wertz has peaked my interest. Tell me anything you can about him. Who knows maybe I'll get lucky. Are you sure the name is Wertz and not Some other derivation. Jonathan Wert tried to connect us with this family, but he conceded that we are not related. At least not the way he first suspected.
