YANTZ MD WVA
Posted by: rezrov Date: October 08, 1999 at 06:48:17
  of 344

Currently looking for parents of Henry and Elizabeth Yantz.

Henry Yantz married
Mary Willison 6/14/1803 in Allegany Co., MD

Their children were:
1)Sophia Yantz (b: abt 1804) who married a David Kerns 2/17/1825 in Allegany Co., MD.

2)George Yantz (B: abt 1807) who married a Louisa Hale 10/20/1827 in Allegany Co., MD.

[Of interest: Henry and son George were material witnesses to a murder which occurred in Allegany
Co. in 1838. Court records show that both men were called to testify against the woman who was
accused of stabbing her husband to death with a knife.]

Henry's sister Elizabeth Yantz married
David Looper 11/1/1804 in Allegany Co., MD

After the death of David Looper his widow Elizabeth Looper (aka. Elizabeth Yantz) remarried a
Levi Hopkins on 9/7/1811 in Allegany Co., MD.

Levi was a Revolutionary War veteran and a widower who was 58 years old at the time of the
marriage. Their children are:

1) Abigail Hopkins (b:1812) named after Levi's first wife Abigail Stevens. Ms. Hopkins married one
Abraham Shaffer of Preston Co., WV.

2) Levi Hopkins (b: 7/10/1814 in Preston Co., WV) not to be confused with the Levi Hopkins born
in Ryan's Glade, Garrett Co., MD the same year who was the son of George Hopkins and Esther
Johnson. George Hopkins was old man Levi's son by his first wife Abigail Stevens and therefore the
Levi of Garrett Co. was old man Levi's grandson. Levi of Preston Co. wife was Anna Maria
Rinehart.

3) Elizabeth Hopkins (b:10/3/1816 Preston Co., WV) married Daniel Wotring of the ubiquitous
Wotring clan of that area. Their descendants (of which I am one) are legion.

4) Samuel Hopkins (b:6/26/1818) married one Susanna Loar in Allegany Co., MD.

Anything additional to add to this data? Please respond within the Genforum so others can share our
delight.
Good Day
