Your original message includes the following:


"1759 - Augusta Co., VA "Palzer Smalzer" purchased 440 acres in Draper Tract part of a patent on Crab Creek A (same property as above).

1761 - Augusta Co., VA "Palzer Smelzer" vs. Frederick "Stem" of New River. The warrant was "kept off by force of arms". (Chronicles of the Scotch Irish Settlement in Virginia Records of Augusta Co., VA 1745-1800 by Lyman Chalkley) (Note: Frederick Stern was a neighbor who in 1750 surveyed and in 1755 was granted land at mouth of New River and Crab Creek. Stern sold his land in 1768 to George Teetar) .

NOTE Paul is using Palzer Paulis- . Note Both George Teater and Paul Smeltzer have a connection, its to Frederick Starns., note The Crab Creek tract Augusta known as the South Irish colony due to the Majority of the people who lived there had Origins in Southern Ireland which includes the Teaters and Smeltzers in Limerick and Kerry. note This are is now in Montgomery Co va Christianburg area."


This Palzer Smelser / Smeltzer (Paulser Smelser) is actually Johannes Balthasar Schmeltzer and is not part of our Irish-Palatinate line. This "Paulser" originates from SW Germany in the area of Neunkirchen, Saarland and immigrated to America in the mid 1700's. Best we know at this time this Paulser had no contact with the Irish-Palatinate Smeltzer's who were found mostly in Ontario, Michigan, New York and New Jersey in those early years.

We do have a John Teeter b. Jan 1862 PA married to Catherine "Carrie" Smeltzer b. May 1858 PA.

John F. Smeltzer
