REV. DANIEL WERTZ B. 1816 PA TO OH

Can anyone connect to this Rev. Daniel Wertz? Who were his ancestors and descendants??

Daniel Wertz was a native of York county, Pa., born Oct. 21, 1816. He was raised in the faith of the German Lutheran Church, and to carry out his own religious
convictions as he approached his majority he was compelled to forsake houses and lands, father and mother and kinsfolks. For he was converted at the age of nineteen, and at once identified himself with the Church of God, and became an active worker in his Master's cause. For a while he preached exclusively in the German language, but gradually acquired the English, and therefore did not much preaching in German. When in his twenty-third year, having removed to Ohio, he was licensed to preach by the Ohio Eldership in October, 1839. The Ohio Eldership a few years later sent him into western Pennsylvania, where he was preaching when the West Pennsylvania Eldership was organized in 1844. He spent the closing years of his life in Iowa. He had the true missionary spirit. He had the reputation of being "an efficient and successful minister, a devoted and zealous Christian and an excellent man."
