RE: Adelaide Wentz
Ah! That's the problem. I didn't add that picture memo. Someone else must have after I posted the picture. I hadn't even noticed it. I've corrected it now.
I've also spent most of the afternoon connecting the Bethesda Wentzes with their proper parents, spouses, etc. Find A Grave will process the links over the next few days, so there will be less confusion in the future.
You're not by any chance the Cyndi I know, are you?

Adelaide Wentz
Hi, Cyndi,
I am distantly related to the Wentz family. My 2x great grandaunt, Louisa Agnes Yost, was married to William Henry Wentz 12 Sep 1872. They lived in Martic (sometimes spelled Martick) Township in Lancaster County, PA - roughly where the town of Holtwood is now. William Henry Wentz was the son of William G. Wentz and the grandson of Joseph Wentz and Sarah Smith.
Adelaide Wentz, b. 20 Sep 1850, d. 22 Jul 1853, was the daughter of William Henry Wentz's uncle, Thomas Wentz, and his wife, Mary Jane Penny. The record of her death is available in the "Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Church and Town Records, 1708-1985" database on Ancestry.com.
As to whether or not she is actually buried there, I really can't say. I stood over her grave stone and took a picture, so I assume that's where she is. :-)
Isaac Wentz, b. 1 Feb 1808 in Martic Twp, d. 23 Aug 1891 in Jones, OK, was William Henry Wentz's uncle and the brother of Adelaide's father, Thomas. In the 1850 census, he has a daughter named Adelaide, age 13. She would have been a 2nd cousin (I think) of the Adelaide buried in the Bethesda cemetery.
The "Biographical Annals of Lancaster County" includes a couple of articles about the Wentz family, including one about Isaac's nephew, W.J. Wentz, MD, that traces the early history of the family. It's online at https://archive.org/details/biographicalanna00megi
Hope this helps.
Best,
Richard Aurand Sherer

RE: Raymond Sweet
I'm so glad to meet you. The only thing I have been told about grandpa is that he would drink a lot and he was married before with a child. I'm sure the more I talk to my uncle's the more I'll find out. Thinking about it I think I remember your name coming up. So much for both of us to learn about our family. Thanks for responding and give me a call when you get a chance.

I found your request to add the information to Louis and added it. For some reason, I had overlooked it when it first appeared and then failed to go back and do it.

Have a great week.

Thanks for the information on William's parents. I have included that in his biography. I am probably related to William's two wives, Caroline and Sarah English.
