     John David ('David') Lentz PERSONAL HISTORY OF D46- (JOHN) DAVID LENTZ-- He appears in 'Wendel Miller History' on p. 15. His name is also shown sometimes as John David LENTZ and as David J. He was baptised at Organ Ch., sponsored by his grandfather Philip Miller. They married in 1835, and nothing was found to show them in Iredell Co., NC. Someone reported that Evelyn Moyer was daughter of 'Dr. Moyer.' After the Civil War, they settled in the Hillsboro, IL area. They had 7 children.
He shows on the 1850 census of Rowan Co., NC as John D. Lentz with 5 children, ages 2-13.
He also shows on the 1860 census of Rowan Co. as David with his oldest son having left home and 2 younger children added. The 1860 census also shows attached to the family 'Maxl. (?) L. Mowery, age 4. This is probably a Moyer orphan related to his wife. We have no records on births in IL or after 1860. There are no additional children shown for this family on the 1860 Rowan census.
He is David on the 1870 census of Rowan Co., NC, at age 58,
wife age 56 -
Children: (At home--his only children who were at home.)
D466-Laura, age 30
D467-Augusta, age 19
Also with the family are the following:
B769- Crawford LENTZ, age 18, male, white, son of B76-David LENTZ who died before B769- Crawford LENTZ was born. He was baptised at Organ Ch. by the widow Nelly LENTZ with the name Jacob Crawford LENTZ. The following 4 people were also with the family of D46- David J. LENTZ on the 1870 census:
(1) Lucette MOYER, age 16
(2) Margaret MOYER, age 14
(3) Jesse COZART, age 24, and (wife),
(4) Mary COZART, age 22. This is believed to have been D465- Mary Saleth Jane LENTZ, a daughter of David J. LENTZ, her married name.
All or part of these may have moved to IL (probably the Hillsboro area) and lived there for a while.
Additional children shown on the 1870 census Nos. 1 and 2, must be Lucetta MOYER and Margaret MOYER, sisters or relatives of the wife of D46- David -- Evelina MOYER. Grace LENTZ of Hillsboro, IL, says that Evelina MOYER was a daughter of 'old' Dr. MOYER, (probably of Hillsboro, IL.)
From LH, Chap V, p 66: D46-David J. LENTZ and Evalina MOYER moved their families to IL, the Hillsboro area, sometime after the 1870 census of Rowan Co., NC. Records of the families of their descendents do not show up in NC. The 1870 census showing D46-David J. LENTZ and Evaline shows only D466-Laura, D467-Dewalt Augustus, born 1851.
All the other children, from D463- through D466-,may be found on records in IL. He moved to IL after the 1870 census, or not long after the Civil War. David J. LENTZ was not found on the 1880 census of Rowan.
Court (apparently in IL) laid off widow's provisions on 2 Oct 1872, which shows that he had died and that she was a widow on 2 Oct 1872.
His estate was sold 22 Feb 1883, 5 children, heirs on 30 Aug 1873.
(Grace LENTZ of Hillsboro, IL, gave us our first list of his children. Records on the children can be found around Hillsboro, IL.)
