Just checking in again to see if there is an new information on my ancestor Isaac Frantz. According to his death certificate, he was born 12 Jun 1818 in Nothumberland County, PA, and parents were born in Centre. I am wondering if he could be from the Frantzes that lived in Miles or Halfmoon townships? Centre was not a county until 1800, and likely Isaac's parents were born prior to 1800. Therefore the part of Centre County they lived in would have then been part of Northumberland, which pinpoints the areas of Miles and Halfmoon.
Chances are great, then, that my Frantzes came from there if the death cert. info is correct. Anyone out there know of which Frantz family lived there? I did find a Jacob Frantz in Halfmoon in 1830 census, had 1 son bet. the ages of 10-15, one 15-20, one 20-30, Jaco was 40-50, 4 daughters 15-20, and wife 40-50. I am inclined to think this may be my family.
My Isaac settled in Brady Township, Clearfield Co., PA and died 7 Oct 1910. He was a farmer, married to an Elizabeth.
10 children of whom I do have info on: daughter Angeline, 1842, Susannah Margaret, 1845, John, 1850, Rebecca, Araminta, William Bigler, Jeremiah, Jacob, Carolina, and Reuben.
