     John Eli Lentz PERSON HISTORY OF D48- (John) Eli LENTZ.
Born 10 or 12 Jul 1825 in Rowan Co., NC, died 28 Mar 1906, buried in Norwood, Stanly Co., NC. Married Elizabeth 'Betty' Kirk on 2 Dec 1847, probably in Iredell Co.. She was born 9 Feb 1827, died 11 Apr 1891, 14 children.
After his birth in Rowan Co. he moved with family to Iredell where he shows as number 17 on the first roll of St. Paul's Lutheran Church near Statesville, NC, where it was built in 1840, with 'removed' following the entry to indicate that he left the area and did not show on the 1849 roster of the church. They raised their family at Norwood, Stanly Co., where the late Edith and Bess Ivey collected a complete family history.
An Eli Lentz served in Rowan Co., as bondsman in the marriage of Kimbrell Kirk and Mary Eagle on 17 Aug 1858. (See p. 225, Marriages of Rowan County, NC, 1753-1868..) Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _UID 4340A93DF4AEEE4083BBB26A7A4BEBD417A3. He was Marriage; Person Source.2 He was born on 12 June 1825 at Rowan County, North Carolina; LH is a little confusing here. It states one place that he was born in Norwood, NC; elsewhere, it says he was born in Rowan, moved with family to Iredell where he shows as a member of St Paul's Luth Ch. on their first roll with 'removed' following it. They raised their large family in Norwood, Stanly Co., where the late Edith and Bess Ivey collected the complete family history. I suspect that LH had a typographical error, showing 'b.' instead of 'd;' if this assumption is correct, he was born in Rowan Co. but died in Norwood, Stanly Co., NC.
