Thanks for the offer. Do you have any information on the line further than I have listed below, or more on the other children of #4 below? I also would be thrilled if you have any information on the Thornburg line that connects into the Bantz line. My g g grandfather Ezra Bantz m. Nancy Thornburg on 9 Nov 1948.
Ezra's(1) father was Joshua (2) his father Johannes John (3) his father John Johann A. (4) his father Jacob A. Do you have any information on (4)Jacob A.'s father? I know Jacob came on the bilander (ship) London on Jan. 10 1739 enroute from Germany. He was b. 1700/1710 in Germany. He died 1767 in Fredericktown, Frederick Maryland. He m.Maria Johanne. They had 6 children: John Johann A.(3) b.1735 Germany; Valentine m. Susan Margaret; Anna Marie b. 174 m. John Ebey in 1765 Fredericktown; George;Martin; Christian.
Another large German/Swiss line that connects into the Bantz and Thornburg line is the Peter Light line and also a Weaver line.
