Wirtz & Houser connection...maybe Snyder County, PA or Union Co., PA to Centre Co., PA.

Jacob Wirtz married Anna Houser [5th child and 8th daughter] of Jacob and Barbara Shirk Houser.
Their Children:
       I.       Samuel Wirtz [1820-1905]
              married 1st Sarah Kelly
                     2nd Sarah [Houser] Kendall-d. 12 Aug 1888, buried Houserville Cemetery
1.       Irvin [lived Milwaukee, WI]
2.       John Calvin marr. Emily A. Igou
3.       Catherine [1854-1927] marr. Thomas Duey [1849-1912] buried Houserville Cemetery

       Married 28 October 1875 Thomas C. Duey of Boalsburg and Kate D. Wirtz of Oak Hall.
4.       Annie marr. George Wolf [lived Chicago, IL]
5.       Lucy Ann Wirtz [1851-1852]
II.       Joseph Wirtz marr. Elizabeth ____ [lived Houserville]
III.       Philip Wirtz marr. Catherine Dale [lived Houserville]
IV.       Abraham Wirtz marr. Margaret Gray
V.       Eliza Wirtz marr. Woilliam McGonigle [Huntingdon Co.]
VI.       Hannah Jane Wirtz marr. Robert Bierly
VII.       Jacob Wirtz
VIII.       John Wirtz
IX.       Barbara Wirtz marr. James Moore
X.       Martha Wirtz marr. Peter Bishop [Carroll Co., IL]
XI.       George Wirtz
XII.       Catherine Wirtz marr. William Denimore [IL]
XIII.       Mary Wirtz marr. William Gross

At one time I was looking for where Jacob Wirtz came from and got to the Union County families as possibilities, but never tied them together.

From Philip Benner Wirtz obit. [III above]. He was born near Houserville 8 Apr 1831, son of Jacob & Anna Wirtz, pioneer settlers of that section of the county. He was the last of a family of 13.
