Hello Viv;
Since I dont know the time period or location you are looking at for Joseph Reitz I can give you some ideas.

You might want to go look for church records that list his baptism date. Its possible that they listed his parents with him.

You might have to look for records in probate for his parents. That might show lineage. A death certificate will also names of known parents. Or Death notice in newspaper articles might list parents.

I looked in the NSDAR Patriot Index and did locate a Andreas Reitz/Ritz
