Re: John A. RENTZ moved to TEXAS
The internet connection is wonderful.See my responses to Terry Barton who is connected on the George Rentz side... a brother of your John Alexander Rentz b. 1850.I have no birth, marriage or death dates for the 1850 John A. family.I would greatly appreciate info.I have Joseph, James and John as sons of Lutitia and Harold, Emma and Dora as children of Emma.
We had a small gathering of Rentz cousins near Atlanta this spring and plan for another on Father's Day Saturday.
As I noted to Terry, we are having trouble making a definite connection of our John A. b. 1815 to other Rentz's either siblings or parents.We have found just recently the name of a sister living with him in later years.We hope that that may provide a connection.
John A. 1815's wife Josephine B. Moore's ancestors go back to 1700's with Revolutionary War brothers and to Thomas McCall, the first Surveyor General of Georgia.
My notes show that John Alexander 1850's brother Charles E. Rentz married S.E. Varner.Do you have any indication of a connection (sisters??) there?
