Jacob KUNTZ (b. 5 January 1798 d. 11 March 1886) immigrated to U.S. in 1832 from "Dosenheim, Alsace". He lived in Stark Co, Ohio for 5 years, then moved to Marshall Co., IN. He had six children, one who died in infancy.
Jacob KUNTZ was a member of the Lutheran church at the time of his death.

Some children of Jacob KUNTZ:
Peter KUNTZ b. ca. 1822
John KUNTZ b. 20 June 1826 in Doseheim, Alsace. d. (m. Catherine Hantz 18 Mar 1854)

Adam KUNTZ, Sr is the brother of Jacob KUNTZ.
Adam KUNTZ (b. ca. 1795 d. 30 Aug 1887) married Elizabeth (Parsons? b. ca 1802) in Alsace. They had nine children, 8 of whom were born in Alsace.

Adam KUNTZ was a member of the German Evangelican Church at the time of his death. He and his family immigrated to the U.S. in 1847

Here are some of Adam and Elizabeth KUNTZ's children:

Peter KUNTZ b. 9 Mar 1850 in Marshall Co., IN, U.S.A. d. 15 May 1926 ( m. Mary Yockey 6 Aug 1871)

I would appreciate information about the KUNTZ family from "Dosenheim, Alsace," their parents, siblings & additional children. Thanks!
