Hello, I have done further research and now know how I am decended from Micheal Kintz born,about 1720,the Palatinate, Germany. His son, Joseph Kintz ,born 1762, came to PA. USA. Michael had 6 children and it looks like all came to PA. Son Joseph married to Helen?( abt.1782) had 9 children, one being Jacob who married Mary Ditteo in 1810. My great great grandfather was their son Charles Michael Kintz who married Elizabeth Foncannon in 1840. They had 9 children one was my great grandfather, Raymond H.Kintz married to Anna Spotts in 1882 and had 6 chidren, my grandmother Margaret being the youngest. I did not come across the the name Ben Franklin Kintz any where but I only followed my direct line so far and did not explore other childen of Jacob Kintz yet.
