In Reply to: St.Pauls Lutheren Church-Preston County by Marian Smith of 1448

Eva d. Oct. 31, 1835
Henry/Heinrich Lantz d. abt. 1830

St. Paul's Lutheran Church is located in Aurora, Preston Co., WV.

The Monongalia Story Vol II, by Earl Core: " Henry Lantz located midway between the sites of Aurora and Rowlesburg (Morton, p. 381)

Morton bk.--Henry Lantz came from Lancaster Co., Pa. in 1801. He
settled on the D.A. Dixon farm, midway between Aurora and Rowlesburg. Eva Bishoff and Henry Lantz had 10 children. (Lists the spouses of 9 in the bk.)

Morton bk.---Henry, Christian and John Bischoff came from Hagerstown to Aurora (Pres.Co., WVA) as early as perhaps 1788, although by one statement Henry and Christian did not arrive until 1801.

Milton Howard Bishoff---pub. a Bishoff book last year. e-mail me privately if you want his e-mail add.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
