Where-O-Where are my Lantz's

Where-O-Where are my Lantz's

Surnames: Lantz
Adam Harrison(?)Lantz Born December 8 1862

Looking for information on pre and de- cendents.
I am told Adam was 1/2 Native American. 1st info I had was Cherokee, info changed to 1/2 Crow recently. Who knows?
Anyway, Adams' father Wesley, mother possibly Nancy.
I have census records that indicate place of birth as West Virginia, Virginia, Pennslyvania. Again, who knows.
I have been unable to find census records for Adam as a child showing Wesley or his mother.
Adam had brothers, George, Jay and possibly John. There is supposedly a sister there also.
Adam died in Indiana County, Indiana Pennsylvania in July 1945.
I believe Adams' mother was the one who was full-blooded Native American.
Adam married Jennie Pletcher(possible widow) and had two children Rose Elizabeth and James Franklin. Jennie passed away and Adam allegedly purchased or bartered his second wife Nancy Livingston from Cambria County(?). They had two children, Tillman Paul and Nancy Jane. Nancy Jane was my grandmother.
Anyway, Adam is the farthest back I seem to be able to find. Anyone with information on this line please email me at

I don't know if there is any connection, but I have a Great Grand Uncle with a middle name of Wesley from Dauphin County Pennsylvania. Samuel Wesley LANTZ.
I have found that in my part of the LANTZ family some of the folks changed the spelling to LENTZ, but just to keep it confusing, some didn't.

Recently I have found corrections to Adam Harrison Lantz's siblings.
George Martin (Married Minnie Foust)
Seymore(Married Ruby King)
Dorothy( married a Harkenstein
I still have not found info regarding Wesley and Nancy the parents.
Wesley was the one who was Indian (Cherokee or Crow)
Wesley's mother was full Indian

Seymore died fairly young but did have a wife and children

George I have located information on but nothing on parents

still in search
