Anna Catherina Kohl Wurtz
Hi Jeffery,

A very kind person from the Lovettsville Historical Society helped me locate the gravestone of Wilhelm Wurtz. Anna's grave is right next to his, but unfortunately there is no stone remaining. I took a couple of pixs of his grave and a wideshot, at an angle, which shows his site and where Anna would be.

In addition, I got a print out of Descendants of Wilhelm Wurtz. This includes estate appraisals, wills, and debarkation details from the arrival of this particular family from Baden, Germany.

Do you have a fax number or a snail mail adress
where I can send this info to you? There are five pages. You can leave me a contact address of fax # on the private site of mine, instead of posting to public page.

RE: Wurtz Request
Hi Jeffery,

I just rec'd e-mail from the Lovettsvile Hist. Society. Anna's grave is in position KK4 in the SE corner of the Old cemetery, along with her husband, Willem Wirz(sic). I'm going to meet someone from that area and they will help me find the location. So maybe some pictures ahead!

Wurtz Request
Hi Jeffery,

I apologize for length of time getting back to you. I'm blaming it on the excrutiating heat and crazy t-storms. I was able to get acess to church library records today. This is an old cemetery, to say the least, and many searches go unfilled there(after talking to one of the church members). However, I found a man who is going to take some time and do in-depth research for me. There are many different spellings of Wurtz in the church records, including Wirtz, Virtz, Wirts, Virts. The Old cemetery was in use until Dec 1879 when Union Cemetery of Lovettsville was incorporated. Today Union Cemetery is the primary cemetery for the town and the Old cemtery is only ocassionally used.

I did find one link that may be your family on Pg. 141 of the Frederick,MD Luthern Marriages and Burials 1743-1811, Ed: Frederick Sheely Weisser, pub. by the Nat'l Geneology(sp) Society in Wash. D.C.

The entry reads: d. Apr. 24, 1803 11PM Maria Elizabeth, wife of Mr. Runner, near Frederickstown, died of consumption. Born May 27, 1733, parents: Wilyam Wurtz and Anna Catharina. Maria Elizabeth m. 1756, 11 children, 8 of which survived her. Her age was 69 years 11mo.

The timeline fits as far as her birth date vs. age her parents would have been. I'm checking to see where their daughter was buried and if that indicates more on her parents, whom I'm fairly certain are the people you are looking for. But no gravesites yet. Don't give up! Best, MariaElena Raymond
