I don't know if this will have any relevance to you, but hopefully it will. The Wentz family that I am connected with is from Decatur County, Kansas. My gg grandfather, Fredrick Christopher Wentz, married Phillipina Pfeil. My g grandfather is Ludwig Frederick Wentz, who married Rosa Pavlicek. My grandfather is Frederick Ludwig, who married Violet Mae Backus, and had ten children, Caroline, Gene, Walter, Florence, Carl, Dwight, Sylvia, Larene, Rosalie, and Brett. There is also a Pauline Wentz Netik, who passed away in childbirth at 22 in 1890, a Gustave Wentz, aged ten at death, and an infant, Walter Wentz, all located at Big Timber Cemetary just outside of Norcatur, Kansas. There was possibly also a Seda H. Wentz, who married a Clarence A. Hudson in Oberlin, Decatur County, Kansas. The was a Lewis Wentz listed at the family residence in 1921, and a Lew Wentz who was listed as a subscriber to the Oberlin Herald as early as 1908. I hope this helps.
