I hope you are able to get this message. I am descended from the Kolts man from Germany and the woman from Nova Scotia you mentioned in your post. I've posted on the Kolts forum recently, but don't know if you're still active here. I have much information about this couple, as they are my great-great-grandparents. But, I'm still lacking certain information and would LOVE to swap & share details with ANYONE out there who is part of this line. Yes, this Kolts couple resided in Michigan and had several children. His first wife was my great-great-grandmother. He went on to have 2 more wives and eventually moved out to California, where many of his descendants lived and still reside. I am a descendant through their daughter, Julia Nancy (Kolts) Stafford, who, with her Canadian husband, migrated to Texas. They raised their children in TX, and lived and died there. I am a Texan and currently reside in the Houston area. IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS RELATED TO ME EITHER THROUGH MATTHEW KOLTS OR NANCY JANE (BEALS) KOLTS (his first wife)PLEASE, PLEASE CONTACT ME! I am thirsty for more information on Matthew & Nancy Jane. And a hearty thanks to all who are nice enough to reply.
