I come down from Adam Nicolaus Platz,
George Platz 1778-1861, Peter Platz 1805-1875. As a child I used to go with my
grandparents to the Platz Annual Reunion near South Bend, IN. I've lived in FL for over 48 years, but thought I'd put in info that was given to me by my grandmother. I am looking for the European origins of the Platz--especially info on Adam's wife.
ADAM NICOLAUS PLATZ left on the ship NEPTUNE
from Rotterdam 1753 for Philadelphia, PA.
(Accompanied by Johann Paul Platz---with two
sons.) His wife, whom he is supposed to have
married before leaving the Old World was
Swedish, being the daughter of a Swedish
Nobleman. She it was who singularly was
honored by being twice endowed by the Kin of
Sweden. (A complete genealogy from the King
of Sweden---Adolf Fredrik 1751-1771---to the
present time clearly proving these statements
is in possession of John Platz.) End of
From the Mormon records I have Adam Platz's wife's name as Barbara Lonit.
I have a list of Adam Platz children. A list
of George Platz 8 children by 1st wife, Miss Gesy and list of 6 children by 2nd wife Maria
George Platz was killed by falling tree in Holmes Co, OH in 1843. Peter moved to OH with wife Polly Deeter in 1826. In 1852 they moved to North Liberty, IN. Peter and Polly had 12 children. I also have their dates.
Anyone wishing specific info may E-mail me direct.
I have the note at the bottom of my grandmother's missive stating that the this history was provided by John Platz for Attorney Gail Seybold, South Bend, IN. 1932.
My other families that intermarried with the Platz family coming across PA and OH to IN were Springer, Deeter, and Porter.
