Hans Jacob Volz of Gundershoffen, Woerth, Alsace, married Eva Elizabetha Gass in 1712. Their son Johann Peter Volz (1726-1806) married Eva Elisabetha Jack, (1724-1784), daughter of Kilian and Anna Margaretha Jack, in 1745, and immigrated to America in 1750. Johann Georg Volz, who married Eva Elisabetha's sister Catharina Barbara Jack (1731-?), was probably Johann Peter's brother. Johann Peter and Eva Elisabetha settled initially at Heidelberg Pennsylvania, and arrived with their family in North Carolina on June 6, 1767 [Records of the Moravians in North Carolina 1:359]. They were among the founding members of Friedberg Moravian Church. The surname later becomes Foltz. Other spellings, e.g. Folts and Fults, are also seen. There was a John FULKS of NC that came through Warren Co., TN on to Rutherford County, TN that is of this line and others that left NC for the north
