     John Thomas Lentz He is with the widow and family on the 1850 census as age 21. It is impossible to identify him on the 1860 censuses of Rowan, Cabarrus, and Stanly counties. No further records.
HOWEVER: On the 1870 census of Rowan, we do find John T. LENTZ, age 41, b. 1829, wife Elizabeth, b. 1829; their children as shown in this Family Group Sheet. Because of the condition of the microfilms, the strong possibility that the census taker hand-wrote the middle initial incorrectly, and so on, we are assuming that this John T. is the same as John F, but it is not a positive identification.
Help is needed from others. Iredell Co. shows John T. LENTZ, m. Ellen C. Barnhardt on 30 Dec 1868 and could not be the same unless it was a SECOND marriage.
1880 Rowan census, ED 244, p. 4, line 19, Gold Hill Twp, shows the following:

Rufus Wiley Lentz

M, b. 23 February 1832, d. 15 April 1873
FatherDewalt Washburn Lentz b. 11 Dec 1802, d. 31 May 1869
MotherSally Sarah Lipe b. 14 Jan 1800, d. 29 Mar 1881
     Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _UID E953F5E70B059B4A8CC8920DCE88226FE7F9. Rufus Wiley Lentz LH says: 'Mrs. McCubbins states that he married his cousin. Here is why they were cousins:
'B24- Sarah Elizabeth LENTZ m. John Christian BERNHARDT. They had a daughter D247- Ann Margaret BERNHARDT who married Rev. Jospeh A. LINN on 21 Jul 1849. He was b. 28 May 1820, and she was b. 27 Jan 1825, and married when he was age 29 and she was age 25.
'The 1860 census of Rowan Co., p. 748-685 shows:
'Joseph A. LYNN, age 40, b. 1820, Lutheran minister.
'Margaret A. (wife, age 35, b. 1825 (D247-Margaret Ann BERNHARDT)'
* * *
In LH, Chap V, p. 56, it says that they were second cousins. My computer software says they were first cousins. (LH also says second cousins on page 58.
* * *
No known issue of this marriage.
* * *
(Following note is from Chap V, p. 58:)
This family was quite a mystery to us until James Ruce Lentz of Salisbury took over the search. His findings are shown on page 31 of this chapter. The family of his wife is found on p. 28.
They had no children. Rufus Wiley married his second cousin, a widow of Rev. Joseph A. Linn, St., who already had children, it is assumed. However, the 1860 census of Rowan Co., NC, would indicate that both boys on that census living with Rev. Joseph A. Linn would be his grandsons. This would indicate that Margaret Bernhardt Linn Lentz did not have any children. (Or she may have a son Joseph A.., b. 1853.)
Interested searchers should hunt for a son of Rev. Joseph A. Linn, (Sr), who died before the 1860 census of Rowan Co., NC, and died after 1853 or died between 1853 and 1860. However, if Rev. Joseph A. Linn was born in 1820 as shown, he and his son both would have had to marry at about age 18. He was Marriage; Person Source.1 He was born on 23 February 1832 at Rowan County, North Carolina; Or 22 Feb 1832.
Organ Church Baptismal Record states: '(Borns) Feb 22, 1832,

Le.' (Livia must be garble of Rufus.)2 He was baptized on 9 March 1832 at Zion (Organ) Lutheran Church, Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina; See birth info for baptismal info.
