Frederick Wantz was born in Preble Co.Ohio in 1804 to Jacob Wantz and Sarah Wringer from Penns. His brother is John Wantz who married Sarah Juday, d/o Henry Juday. Frederick married Elizabeth Wolfe and they are found still living in Ohio in the 1850 census along with their children. Their son Erwin lives next door to them and married Mary Bell whom I am looking for. I cannot find Mary until I find Erwin. Erwin and Mary had 3 children born in Ohio before they moved to Elkhart Co., Indiana along with his parents and siblings. There may have been other children born in Indiana. It seems Erwin lived the remainder of his life in Elkhart Co. I do not know the year of his death. Siblings of Erwin were: Nelson, Elizabeth, Benton, Nancy, and Jacob.
