George Werntz, father, served with Valentine Werntz/Warntz/Varntz, son, in Lancaster Co.PA militia starting in 1776 according to PA historical archives. Militia called up in June 1776 to guard Philadelphia-probably to preclude British interference w/drafting & signing Declaration of Independence. George, in 1777 muster, listed as dead. Anybody know circumstances of his death-cause, where,and where he is buried? This is a vital missing piece of historical info for those of us who are George's and Valentine's descendants. Please post on this Forum if you know, and source(s) of your info. Thanks.
