(See LH, Bastian Sec Addendum, p. 20:) Ralph E. Lentz of Concord sent 'The Name and Family of Lentz' as written by Historical Research Bureau of Washington, DC. They discuss the various spellings for LENTZ, mention Walter Knittle's book about emigration, and date the name as earlier than 1541. They list the name as found in PA, including Sebastian and Margaretha Lentz, but make no direct family connections to any of the NC Lentz families. (For the present, I am assuming that Ralph E. Lentz of Concord is the same person as this one.)
