Jacob & Magdelena (ROMETSCH) KUNTZ - Cambria Co, PA
Posted by: Dennis Bethards (ID *****2003) Date: August 24, 2010 at 00:20:10
  of 1025

The US Gen website for Cambria Co, PA, St Benedict RC Cemetery in Carrolltown has the parents of these 2 as Jacob & Barbar (MARTIN) KUNZ and Michael & Catharina (NEUMAIER) ROMETSCH respectively. Jacob, the younger was b. either 29 Jan 1800 or 29 Dec 1801 in Reichenbach Baden and d. 1 Aug 1871 in Cambria Co, PA. Magdelena was b. 6 Feb 1806 in Busenbach Reichenbach Baden. They had 15 children. At least 3 were born in Baden. They probably came sometime 1830-1835 to the US. I would like to know more about the parents of these 2. My wife descends from the 10th child, Jacob Benjamin REMETCH. He changed his name to his mother's maiden name, and this is the way they spelled it; supposedly his wife Elizabeth (GLASS) came up with the REMETCH spelling.
