I found a connection to Joseph Plotts (4 MAR 1777-1859) son of Phillip Plotts, son of Johann Paulus Platz. It looks like Joseph married Hannah Mary Wolfe and their first son was Benjamin Plotts, who is my ggg grandfather.
Benjamin's only son, Peter, was a doctor. He moved to Texas and had a bunch of kids.
Any info about this line would be great.I have some hard facts from LDS, but no good stories.
