Henry T. Lentz1

     Henry T. Lentz PERSONAL HISTORY OF D213- Henry T. Lentz
Born 21 Apr 1819, died ___ Nov. 1870.
He married circa 1844 to Estella Crowell, born 27 Jul 1824, died 5 Apr 1912. She was from Iredell Co. and a daughter of David Crowell. (Note: Lentz Heritage, Chap V, p. 50 says she was from Cabarrus Co.)
(Note: David Crowell or Correl, married B21- Rebecca Lentz in about 1815. Henry T. Lentz and his wife Estella Crowell were third cousins, their common ancestor being Hans Petrus Lentz, father of B- Bastian and D- Dewalt Lentz.
There seems to be no doubt about the name CROWELL was originally the German name CORRELL. This is an example of the English changing German names to a similar sounding English name. Correll descendents in IL and AL list him as David Crowell, using the English spelling of Crowell but pronouncing it as Correll, 'Karell.' David Correll married B21- Rebecca LENTZ, b.c. 1788, m. 12 Jan 1811 and remained in NC when the rest of the family moved to IL. Rebecca is listed on the WILL in IL as wife of David Correll. If this is the same David Crowell, which it almost certainly is, then his grandaughter would be B21?-Estella Crowell (Correll) and she married her third cousin. Children by Henry:
D2131- George, b. 1845
D2132- Mary C. F. , b. 1847
D2133- Ida A., b. 1866, on 1870 Cabarrus Co., NC, census with Estelle.
Henry T. Lentz was a wagon maker. Living with the family of Henry T. LENTZ on the 1850 census of Cabarrus was Jennings Crowel, age 22, apprentice wagon maker. This could have been a younger brother of his wife, Estella Crowel.
Some researchers report that he died in Nov 1871. However, the Cabarrus Co., NC, census of 1870 shows only (widow) Estell Lentz, age 46, with granddaughter Aranna (Lentz?), age 4, (b. 1866). Therefore, Henry must have died in Nov 1869 or at least before the t870 census.
His widow Estelle married SECOND on 10 Jul 1873 to Matthias Barringer. She would have been age 49 and no children would be expected.

John was the only child named on his father's Will because he had just married the September before, and the only married child. We know he was sponsored at baptism by his grandfather D- Dewalt LENTZ, Sr., since Dewalt LENTZ, Jr., was only age 11. He moved to Cabarrus Co., NC in 1825 and was one of the six men that founded St. Stephens Church there. It is reported that he learned the trades of tailoring and harness making from his father and taught the trades to his son D221- Peter Joseph LENTZ, Jr. So the harness trade was still in the family line. John and wife are buried at St. Stephens Lutheran Ch. in Cabarrus Co., NC. Apparently John had a good trade and did not want to bother with the sawmill his father willed to him and a brother, so he sold the farm and mill. (See the work of the Executors of the estate oHe and his wife had 7 or 8 children.f D1- Peter J. LENTZ in the Second Generation.)

The births of the Fisher children and their baptisms are found in the church records. The Fisher family arrivd in Philadelphia, PA on 2 ct 1727 aboard the ship Adventurer, John Davis, Master. They also settled in New Goshenhoppen and were members of the New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church. It is reasonable that Wyant family and the Fisher family were friends in Germany. It is possible that Jacob wrote to his friends in Freinsheim about his life in the colonies and this prompted Wendel to leave his homeland and join the Fishers in America.1' He was New Goshenhoppen Ref Church (now Upper Hanover Twnship.)1

Peter Lentz1

M, b. circa 1733, d. 1809
     Peter Lentz research possibilities are 1. The DNA evidence demonstrates that Peter and John can not be sons of Hans Petrus Lentz.
Many people who are interested in Lentz and/or Lance genealogy will have read the book Lentz Heritage, by John Paul Lentz. In this book, John Paul Lentz refers to four Lentz men who lived in the same place at the same time as "brothers". However, no documentation has ever been found to support this claim. Since these four men - John, Peter, Bastian, and Dewalt - seem to be about the same age, and have the same last name, and were in the same place at the same time, it seems reasonable to conclude that they may have been brothers.

It is against this backdrop that a group of people with interest in Lentz and Lance genealogy began to use DNA to determine the actual relationship among these four "brothers".

Let us start with a presumptive hypothesis that John, Peter, Bastian, and Dewalt are all brothers. Then, if we can find direct descendants who derive from each of the four brothers along the all-male line, and compare their DNA, then we should find that in all four cases the Y chromosome is identical, or at least very similar. This is what was done.

For Dewalt Lentz (D), we tested a descendant who was a 4th great grandson. For Bastian Lentz (B), we tested a 3rd great grandson. For John Lentz (J), we tested a 6th great grandson. Then for Peter (P), we tested one descendant who was a 4th great grandson (a 3rd great grandson of Peter's son Samuel (Samuel was Peter's fourth son, hence P4)) and a 5th great grandson (a 4th great grandson of Peter's son John (John was Peter's third son, hence P3)). [Note that when I say "we", I really mean that the samples were analyzed by FamilyTreeDNA.] So we have 5 DNA samples that represent a total of 36 generations (or more precisely, transmission events, the number of times a Y chromosome was passed from a father to his son).

I will neglect to demonstrate the mathematics here except to say it like this: We tested 12 sites on the Y chromosome for each of the 5 volunteers. Let's assume a mutation rate of 0.3% per site per generation (or transmission event). With 36 events times 12 tested sites per event at 0.3%, we should expect to see the following probabilities (rounded).

Number of Mutations: Probability:
0 27.4%
1 35.5%
2 23.0%
3 9.9%
4 3.2%
5 0.8%
6 0.2%
7 <0.03%
8 or more very small numbers
So how many mutations are present in our set of samples, presuming that the four are brothers? Well, there is one present in the J4 sample line (the change in DYS 389i CAUSES the change in DYS 389ii, so it is only one change, in spite of the numbers being different at two sites). Then there are an additional 4 mutations in the Bastian sample line (noting it takes 2 changes to get from 23 to 25 in DYS390). Then there are 4 more mutations in the Dewalt line. So that makes a total of nine. [Note that you do not get to "share" mutations in this case. That is to say, one mutation could not have been responsible for the change in DYS 391 in the Bastian line AND in the Dewalt line. That could be true if you thought maybe Bastian was a son of Dewalt, or something like that. But in our case, if Bastian and Dewalt are considered as brothers, then the changes must have come independently.]

So you can see that we have 9 mutations. And the probability of that happening in 36 transmission events is very close to zero (this would represent a mutation rate about 10x the normal value). So the conclusion is that these four men could not have shared the same father. The DNA demonstrates this. So why do I say that John and Peter are not the sons of Hans Petrus Lentz, instead of saying that it is Bastian and Dewalt who are not the sons of Hans Petrus Lentz? This is because the baptism records for Bastian and Dewalt as sons of Hans Petrus Lentz have been found, whereas no such records have been found for Peter and John. So it is the DNA which demonstrates that they could not have, all four of them, been sons of Hans Petrus Lentz, and it is the paper genealogy which provides the answer as to which ones were sons of Hans Petrus Lentz. Therefore, Peter and John are eliminated as being possible sons of Hans Petrus Lentz.

So from the DNA alone (a conclusion which agrees very well with the paper documentation), I concluded that Bastian and Dewalt are very closely related to each other - close enough to be brothers. John and Peter are also very closely related to each other - close enough to be brothers, but slightly more likely to be close cousins. Our technique is not precise enough to determine these exact relationships unambiguously. But it IS precise enough to determine that all four Lentz men could NOT have been brothers. between 1700 and 1800 at North Carolina.2 Peter Lentz was born circa 1733 at Heidelberg, Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.3 He married Chloe ? circa 1752 at Rowan County, North Carolina.3 M; Bastian was one of two brothers (the other was Diebolt, or Dewalt) who immigrated to America from Germany. Two additional Lentz men, Peter and John, were for many years believed to be brothers of Bastian and Dewalt because of longstanding North Carolina legend and also because all four settled for a while (between 1778 and 1782) in Rowan Co., NC. We are now sure, however, that Peter and John were not brothers of Bastian and Dewalt because Peter and John do not appear in the baptismal records of the same church where Bastian and Dewalt were baptized and as a result of DNA tests conducted using descendants of the four.4 Peter was listed as John Henry Lentz's neighbor on the 1790 Census at Rowan County, North Carolina; A "Henry Lentz" shows up in 1790 census in Rowan County. Is this the father (as alleged by the Rowan Heritage Book #598 p. 430), or his son, called by Turner-Ensley "John Lentz"?
"Henry Lentz" 1 male over 16; 1 male under 16; 5 females.5 As of 1800, Peter Lentz was also known as Peter Lance.6 Peter Lentz was also known as Johannes Peter Lentz.3 He was census 1800 in June 1800 at Morgan Township, Buncombe County, North Carolina; Peter Lance 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 0 1
1 male 10-15; 1 male 16-25; 1 male 45 and over (Peter); 1 female 16-25; 1 female 45 and over.6 He died in 1809 at Buncombe County, North Carolina; It is believed that Peter died before the 1810 census. There was an epidemic in 1808-1809 that took the lives of many elderly. It is believed that Chlore died in this time period,also.3 He was buried at Royal Pines, Rowan County, North Carolina.3 He Rowan County Heritage #598 Lentz Families arrived in Charlestown SC 1750 & imm sent back to Germany for sweetheart Few if any of Peter's line remained in Rowan. His farm was at the mouth of Crane Creek and Yadkin River and they were members of Dutch Pine Mtg Hse, todays Union Lutheran -- Rowan County Heritage #598.1

It is also my will that my wife shall have and one room in the house wherein I now live, for her own use. The above mentioned articles are to be delivered to my wife whenever my youngest son, David, becomes of age. It is further my will that from the time when my son David comes of age, my son George and Henry shall give unto my wife, Christina, yearly each of them, three bushels of wheat, five bushels of corn, fifty pounds of beef, and twenty five pounds of pork.

6. I give and bequeath to my son, Frederick, the sum of twenty five Spanish Milled Dollars.
7. I give and bequeath to my son, John, twenty Spanish Milled Dollars.

It is further my will, that the negro woman, Patt, shall be hired out yearly for the benefit of my estate; and it is also my will that there shall be no vendue made until my son, David, becomes of age, all my property shall be sold, and the money arising from that sale shall be divided into equal shares amongst all my children, my step-daughter Elizabeth excepted, provided that before this distribution takes place the above mentioned sums are paid and also one hundred dollars to my wife, Christina.
It is my will also, that my wife Christina, shall have the power to furnish out of my estate those of my children which are yet unmarried at the time of their marriage with the same articles with which my married children have been furnished; and if at the time when the above distributions take place any of my children are single yet, they shall be provided for and furnished in the same manner.
It is further my will that if any building or repairs of buildings is necessary it shall be paid out of my estate.
I make, ordain and constitute my friend George Henry Berger, my wife, Christina, and son Philip, Executors of this will, and I empower them to make deeds to my sons George and Henry for the land herein willed. Then I declare this to be my last will and testament and pronounce all others null and void.

Written this 10th day of 6th month 1641 Thomas Blogget. IN presence of us Tho Harris, John Meena name Blodgett has been variously spelt. Genealogical recoreds furnish not less than twenty four variations, most of them, of couse, the offspring of illiteracy; one or two branches have adopted a fanciful termination, perhaps to make plausible the claim that it had a Huguenot origin, but there is no good ground for that; the family came from the eastern Counties of England. The original immigrant wrote the name Blogget, and that form prevailed for a century; then Blodget was adopted, and about a hundred years ago, Blodgett became the form followed by most of the name, and it is interesting to find from the Visitations, i.e. the Heraldic records of Suffolk and Norfolk, that this was the correct, and as far as observed, the only English spelling as far back as 1561, long before the immigrant Thomas arrived in Boston -- The Blodgett ancestors of Asahel Blodgett Topical Dictionary of 2,885 Immigrants to NE 1620-1650, by Charles Edwards Banks - lists Thomas Blodgett as from Haughley Parish, comes over on ship Increase coming to Cambridge MA.
