M, b. 5 December 1794, d. 14 August 1868
FatherPeter J Lentz2 b. c 1770, d. 2 Jan 1815
MotherAnna Margaret Geran2 b. c 1770, d. 12 Apr 1841
     John Jacob Lentz was also known as John Jacob ('Jacob') Lentz. Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _UID CB220CE9756F4B428A9541D10C746968D570. He They moved to IL in 1828. They had 8 children.
HISTORY OF D23- (JOHN) JACOB LENTZ AND CATHERINE CLUTTS
Jacob LENTZ was involved in three land transactions in Rowan that involved the administrators of his father's estate which would be a result of his being an heir. They were (1) 7 Jul 1819, Bk. 25. p. 577; (2) 10 Jul 1819, Bk. 25, p. 629; and (3) 3 May 1828, Bk. 34, p. 446.
He witnessed the deed selling part of his father's estate on 29 Aug 1817, Bk. 25, p. 113, and he signed the marriage bond for his brother D26= Peter J. LENTZ, Jr., 5 Apr 1820.
He moved to IL where his descendents have records that tie back to this family in Rowan Co., NC.
His Klutts family ties are shown in Rowan Deed Book 26, p. 167, 4 Apr 1820 when he and wife Katharine sell their 1/5th part of the estate of Wendel Klutts to Garret Pickler for $275. Henry Klutts (her brother) having bought 3/5ths of the estate and sold 4/5ths to Garret Pickler. Apparently Wendel Klutts had 5 living children in 1820 - relatives of the children of D23- Jacob LENTZ and Katherine Klutts.
His family and records show in IL for 1830 until his death. He had already received his inheritance and left NC when the farm was sold to his mother in 1833. Sponsored child of brother-in-law John Klotz, 28 Oct 1827.
(NOTE: Also attached to this family by one writer were the following: D239-James H. LENTZ, b. 1867 in IL, and D24O-Albert LENTZ. These are believed to be in error and may show up in another family.) John Jacob Lentz was also known as Jacob Lentz.2 He was Marriage; Person Source.3 He and Catharine Kluttz Bonded by Michael Brown, witnessed by Roberts Nanny. See 'Rowan

"An article was inserted in the warrant for the town meeting to be held May 27 1776 'to see if the town will abate all, or any of the ministerial rates of those persons that are of the Baptist persuasion.' The vote of the town in reference to this article reads as follows, 'Voted, to abate the ministerial rates of Stephen Ralph, Sadey Mason, and Aaron Perry.' For several years subsequent to this period this favor was refused."6 As of 1790, Stephen Rolph was also known as Stephen Ralf.7 He is head of household on the census of 1790 at Princeton Town, Worcester County, Massachusetts, M; 1790 U.S. census, Worcester County, MA, 233, Princeton Town | 'Ralf, Stephen, 3 males 16+, 0 males 16-, 3 females.'

I wonder if the other one isn't Thomas Rolph. Although I have him married sooner, and in Chester, VT, I wonder why Elizabeth Fuller's diary says just 'Mr. Tom Ralf here' in 1791? Sounds like he wasn't married yet! By 1800, if he is the Tom Rolf in 1800 Windsor County VT census, he has 4 children (3 boys and 1 girl) under 10, none over.

Brown to Fred Rolfe, Jr., March 4, 1984 Tradition Statement of Lucy (Rolph) Grover to her daughter, Corinia Maria (Grover) Mack prior to her death 'Sometimes, s supposed, in the 17th century, Thomas Rolph, in Canterbury, Kent, England, was walking out alone, he was taken and impressed aboard a 'Man-of-War' vessel and brought to America and landed at, what is now, Boston. As soon as he had an opportunity he sent for his family (he being sick with consumption), a wife and two sons. He wrote his wife to take all his private papers, waht money she wanted and his coat of arms. He owned a vast amount of property in Canterbury, and when his oldest son, John, (Stephen was the 2nd son) became of age, he took the papers and started to go and care for the property in Canterbury, and wherever their possessions were, but they never knew what became of him. Stephen Rolph was my grandfather, and my father's name was John Rolph born in Princeton, Mass. Dec. 29, 1752. My mother's maiden name was Mary Osborn born Oct. 14, 1753 in Litchfield, Conn. My grandfather, Stephen Rolph, saw the captain of the boat on which his brother John sailed, several years afterward, and asked him about him; he said he thought there was a man of that name on board, but he thought he died on the passage.

From Upton's Heritage, by Donald Blake Johnson (1984). 1735 map and page 10. Sussannah Stewart's father, Benjamin Stewart, lived next to David Batchelor, 'a cooper.' Since Stephen was a 'cooper,' could it be that, after Thomas' death (around 1730?), Stephen was apprenticed to David Batchelor (who was 'from Wenham'); and it was in Upton that he met Susanne? The Batchelor's (and the Stewarts?) were from Wenham or the North Shore. David Batchelor 'bought several large tracts beginning in 1731' in Sutton, and his name appears on the March 5,1732/33 Sutton town meeting in which it was put to a vote to free the easterly inhabitants to join others in becoming Upton. Upton finally became a town in 1735. Upton's Heritage, pg. 8-- 'That portion of Sutton which would bcome the western side of Upton was settled rapidly from 1723 on by migration from older towns such as Rowley, Wenham, and Bradofrd on the North Shore of the colony and, to a leser extent, from Chelmsford and Concord.' Could it be possible that Stephen and Susanne were married by Rev. Ebenezer Parkman, who 'baptized children, married couples, and admitted to membership in the Westborough church many who were actually citizens of the new town of Upton. These were all parishoners of Rev. Ebenezer Parkman, and they created, until 1750 an enclave of former Westborough citizens located in the northwest secton of Upton.' (p. 13). A less likely candidate was Ebenezer Ober, who arrived in 1742 in what had been Hopkinton (leased land). Who was 'Jonathan Roff' of Southborough? According to Grafton, Mass., Vital Statistics, int. to m. Abigail Flagg was issued 29 Dec, 1750; two children born in Grafton 'Abigail Rolf, Feb. 18, 1752;' 'Elisabeth Rolf, Sep. 30, 1754.' Any connection? Lucy Brown, 'Notes on the Rolph family' states that all of Stephen Rolph's eleven children's marriages, except John's, were 'recorded in Princeton marriages Vital records of Princeton Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849, page 131, pub. 1902. ' Other references she cited were 'Vital records of Grafton, Mass. to end of the year 1849, published 1906, Births, p. 112; marriages, p. 273. Vital records of Princeton, Mass. to end of year 1849, births, p. 58-59; Marriages, p. 130-131; Deaths, p. 186.' IGI has marriage 1743 in Upton; also Worcester, Grafton. Stephen lived in Grafton 1740? An interesting theory -- maybe they didn't come from England, but from Woodbridge, Middlesex, NJ? A Jonathan Rolph was b there about 1714 and a Robert Rolph 1719, acc to MA IGI (which lists them as though they are Woodbridge, MA). Could this Robert Rolph actually be Stephen Rolph?1

Edward Clifford1

M, b. 16 October 1733, d. 14 April 1824
     Edward Clifford was born on 16 October 1733 at Maiden Lane, City of Westminster, Greater London County, England.2 He was born in 1747 at Maiden Lane, City of Westminster, Greater London County, England; Simeon Clifford was the second son of Edward, who was born in Maiden Lane England about the year 1747, and at the age of eighteen years came to Philadelphia as a waiter for a man by the name of Logan.3 Edward immigrated, say 1751. Destination: an unknown place .3 He married Abigail Winslow at Hardwick, Worcester County, Massachusetts, on 30 November 1761.4,5,6 "Mr. Clifford had a weakness too common, not only to men of that day, but to the same class of the present day, in his resolution to resist the intoxicating cup. In 1780 a recruiting party came along, gave him liquor enough to overcome him, and then got his name on the enlistment papers for the army. When he became sober enough to know what he had done he was in agony of mind. What could he do? He had a family of small children wholly dependent on him for support. To put himself beyond the reach of the recruiting officers he fled from home and went on board a vessel which soon put out to sea. He had been on the water but a short time before the vessel was captured by a Britsh man-of-war, and being an Englishman the captain tried to enlist him into the British service. But he peremtorily refused. America was his country, here was his family, and he would not fight against them; but he was willing to do anything for the ship or crew, and being a tailor by trade, he was employed in making and mending garments. After a time the ship in which he sailed put into the harbor of the British island Antigua, and being desirious of getting away, he asked and obtained leave to go on shore, and he was soon out of sight. But he had no means of subsistence, and after seeking employment sometime without success, he concluded to make one bold move, and going into the office of a lawyer by the name of Lovell, he said to him, "Sir, I am a stranger in a destitute condition whom the fortune of war has cast upon this island, and you must put me into some business whereby I can earn a living." Mr. Lovell made some inquiries of him about what he could do, and told him to call again the next day, and he would let him kinow what could be done for him. He called according to appointment and was employed to take charge of the field hands on a plantation. How long he continued in this employment we do not know, but in process of time he was raised to the condition of manager of the plantation, with higher salary, which enabled him to accumulate some funds. He eventually invested his money in merchandise, and joining with others, bought or chartered a vessel and sailed for New York. In passing "Hell Gate" the vessel was stranded and, losing all their property, they barely escaped with their lives. Thus suddenly perished the hope Mr. Clifford had so long cherished, of putting his family in comfortable circumstances, but he found them alive and his return was a joyful surprise as they had long supposed him to be dead. (The family had worn the usual symbols of mourning and laid them aside, and had Mr. Clifford remained away a few weeks longer, Mrs. Clifford would have changed her name.)" p 223 - 225.3 Edward Clifford and Abigail Winslow were resided1 "Soon after the two sons located here, Edward Senior the father and the mother came, accompanied by the youngest son, Calvin. These occupied the house which had been built forthem by Simeon, on the easterly slope of the hill about twenty five rods west of his house. They resided there until 1812, when Simeon sold his farm in Pittsford to William Allen, and moved to Brandon, takng his aged parents with him.
We have alluded to the pernicious habit which Edward, the father, had when a young man, of using intixicating drinks and of hsi being under the influence of these when he signed the enlistment papers to enter the army, which led to his flight from home and the serious results which followed. But it is due to him to say that after his return to his family, he made a solemn vow that he would never again touch intoxicating drinks, a vow which he religiuously kept, thus setting an example worthy to be initiated by all addicted to similar habits." p. 225-226 say 1795 at Pittsford, Rutland County, Vermont.3 Edward Clifford died on 14 April 1824 at Brandon, Rutland County, Vermont, at age 90.2
