I am trying to find some information on my husbands family from Virginia. I know his mother's mother was Amy Wertz b. 1900, her father Rufus M. Wertz b. 1875 =m.Icie D. Leffler. Rufus's father I have as a John (wilson?) Wertz b. 1834 in Virginia =m. Sarah Jane (possibly Ellison).
I have searched every Wertz family anything and I can't seem to find any of these names anywhere.
Some other possible links may be: Father of John: William Wertz b. 1800 Virginia Mother of John: Mary Ferguson
Father of William:Wilhelm Wertz b. 1763 Frederick, Maryland Mother of William: Elizabeth Bowers
I also found this information: Wilhelm Wertz Sr. and Jr. and Phillip Peter Wertz emigrated in 1753, (but note the d.o.b. I have is 1763)settled first near Middletown, Frederick County, Maryland before 1768, and then moved to Loudoun County, Virginia.Records of the descendants of William Sr., b.a. 1703, and Anna Catharina Wertz are found in the records of the New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church at Lovettsville, Loudoun County, Virginia
If anyone can help me clear up the mystery I would great apprciate it. firstname.lastname@example.org
