RE: Wm Addison Cox
He is also, Julia & William are is 2nd Great Grandparents on his fathers side. Elijah "Lige" Cox is his Great Grandfather and Gladie Cox is his Grandmother. By all means, you keep them, I just want them to be with family and not just part of a cemetery index. They are in good hands...so I am happy. If I run across any info I will send it your way, however, you've got this pretty covered already. Thank you - Bonnie

Re: Rosanna Gmelin Wentz
Thank you for the information on Rosanna Gmelin Wentz. I have corrected her memorial so that it now contains her maiden name.

RE: Charles Wentz 1941
Then that is the one you want. I will post the picture forthwith. Here is the information from Adabel's husband:
Lyle J Wentz 1904-1946

Charles Wentz 1941
This may not be the Charles you want. He is buried in a completely different part of the cemetery. The Charles that is near Adabel died in 1922 and was a child. Adabel has a husband named Lyle and I have that picture as well.

RE: Adelaide Wentz
I thought you might be Cyndi Ingle, operator of Cyndi's List (which is a great resource!). She lives just outside of SeaTac in Washington, and you said you were in the Northwest.
There are 2 competing origin stories for the Wentz line. One is the 4 brothers on the ship Samuel; the other is a privateer named Peter Wentz, whose home was allegedly used as HQ by Geo. Washington during a battle. They were originally in the Montgomery County-Chester County area outside of Philadelphia. A lot of the Wentz children married Pennys, as I'm now discovering.The link I sent you is for a family book that was put together in the late 19th century and favors the Peter Wentz story. Let me know if you figure out which one is right.

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
