Stolz or Stoltz Family

First Generation

Heinrich Stolz married Barbara Diez (1738-1815). He died in 1773, and she married the widower George Hauser, with whom she had three additional children.

Second Generation

Children of Heinrich Stoltz and Barbara Diez
Johann Casper Stoltz (1753-1834) m. Anna Margaretha Hauser (1761-1841)
Johann Heinrich Stoltz (1758-?)
Johann Jacob Stoltz (1760-1798) m. Eva Schulz (1766-1841)
(After his death, she became the second wife of Abraham Transou
(Eva Schulz Transou was the dau. of George Schulz and Maria Huber)
Susannah Elizabeth Stoltz (1762-1842) m. Johann Samuel Strub (1757-1832)
Abraham Stoltz (1766-?) m. Rosina?
Daniel Stoltz (1768-1770)

Previously we suggested that Johann Heinrich Stoltz and Abraham Stoltz may have died young.
However, there are quite a few other Stoltz individuals in the early 19th century whom we can't trace back to Heinrich and Barbara. This suggests at least one additional son may have lived and fathered children (although we can't rule out the presence of another Stoltz family of Heinrich's generation). Moravian records list a Philip Stoltz resident in the Wachovia community in 1780. There are baptismal records at Shiloh Lutheran for a child Elizabeth, d/o Philip and Catharine Stoltz, and for a Henry Stoltz born 1798, son of Abraham and Rosina.

A Henry Stultz died in 1822, leaving a wife Sarah and a large family, of whom a son Philip and daughter Anna (Miller) were clearly of age, plus younger children, some of whom were under age. This would have to be someone born no later than about 1780. Could he be Johann Heinrich born 1758, or is he a younger man?
