644. GEORGE LEWIS STOLTZ

gin-bottom: 0.0000gd;">George Lewis Stoltz was born 23 May 1846 at Stoltz Prairie, Lick Prairie Precinct, Wabash County, Illinois, was the son of George Johann Stoltz and Margaret Hinkle. See Number 64. George grew up on his father's farm. He attended one of the local rural schools, probably Buzard Roost, one-half mile south and 1 1/2 miles east of his home. He also attended the Jordan Creek Lutheran Church about 2 1/4 miles north of his home. His parents were members of this church. Young George Stoltz was sometimes called George Jr. He loved farming and carpentry. He was also a school teacher. George was one of the early teachers of Stoltz School. His father helped establish and then donated the land for this school. County records show that George taught Stoltz School for two school years: 1886-1887 and 1887-1888. A school year at that time was comprised of three terms--fall, winter, and spring, with a total of six months. The story of Stoltz School, a list of teachers, and an early picture of a school class is given at Number 64. Family tradition reveals that Eva Weyl, whom he married at age eighteen, was one of George's pupils. Therefore, George would have also taught Stoltz School in 1873-1874 or 1874-1875, or both years.

George Stoltz married Eva Weyl 9 March 1876 in Wabash County, Illinois. Eva Weyl was born 15 May 1858 about two miles northwest of Stoltz School in Wabash County, Illinois. Her father was Henry Whyle (note spelling), born in Germany, and Elizabeth 11 it. Henry Whyle married his first wife in Germany and had three children: (1) Robert Weyl, (2) Charles Weyl, and (3) "____" Weyl. Henry and his family came to America in the 1840's. They settled northwest of Stoltz School. It is uncertain if Henry changed the spelling of his name from Whyle to Weyl or if he accepted the U. S. census taker's spelling. Henry's first wife died young and he married second Elizabeth 11 it and had five children from this marriage: (4) William, (5) Louisa, (6) Lizzie (Strine), (7) Frances, and (8) *Eva (Stoltz).

tyle="color: #000000; font-family: 'Courier New'; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-spacerun: 'yes'; mso-fareast-font-family: NewCenturySchlbk;">George and Eva Stoltz after their marriage moved to his father's land about one-fourth mile south of Stoltz School. On the 9th of May 1881 he bought 40 acres of this land from his father and mother for $700; recorded and located as follows: S.W. 1/4 of S.W. 1/4 of Section 21, Township 1 North, Range 13 West of Second Principal Meridian, Lick Prairie Precinct, Wabash County, Illinois. In 1885 he purchased the S.E. 1/4 of N. E. 1/4 (40 acres) of Section 16, Township 1 North, Range 13 West of Second Principal Meridian, Lancaster Precinct, Wabash County, Illinois, from his father and mother for $250. George built on the 40 acres south of his father's homestead, but never built on the 40 acres in Section 16. George and Eva were faithful members of the Jordan Creek Lutheran Church located about two miles southwest of Lancaster, Illinois. Eva Stoltz met an untimely death 11 June 1895. Her youngest daughter, Emma, was only fifteen months old. Burial is at Old Brick Cemetery, Jordan Creek Lutheran Church. Eva Stoltz, the oldest daughter, who was ten years old, helped her father raise-the family except for baby Emma who was taken by Margaret Kolhouse, her father's sister who lived near. Emma continued to live with her Aunt Margaret.

1. MATTHIAS STOLTZ
Matthias Stoltz was born about 1634 at Buchenbach, Bavaria. Bavaria at this date was a territory of the Allemanni. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the Franks took control of this region and Bavaria became a part of Charlemagne's empire. After Charlemagne's death, the kingdom was divided into three regions and Bavaria, a part of the Roman territory Alsace, became an independent duchy. The German Allemanni Tribe settled Alsace. The name for early Germany was Allmogne.
Matthias was most likely of the Catholic faith and probably was a peasant. He may have been a keeper of sheep and cows rather than a farmer of grain. The name peasant or farmer included two divisions of farming--the shepherd and the agriculturist, each having his own garden and fruit trees.
The Oberbetschdorf Parish records gave no family information as to the name of Matthias' wife, who his father was, or the date of Matthias' death.
It seems, therefore, that Matthias Stoltz is the oldest known Stoltz ancestor, or it may be more appropriate to say that Matthias is the progenitor of the Herr Johann Adam Stoltz family lineage.
Research did reveal, however, that Matthias had a son.
11. Johann Balthasar Stoltz was born about 1656 at Buchenbach, (Bavaria) Germany.

11. JOHANN BALTHASAR STOLTZ
Johann Balthasar Stoltz was born about 1656 at Buchenbach, (Bavaria), Alsace, Germany. Johann Balthasar Stoltz married Maria Catharina Schumann about 1687-1688. Maria Catharina Schumann was born about 1667 at Oberbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. No information as to the names of her parents.
Johann Balthasar Stoltz died 23 December 1741 and Maria Catherine died 3 April 1752. Both are buried at Oberbetschdorf church cemetery, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany, now Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France.
Johann and Maria Catharine Stoltz had three sons, all born at Oberbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany.

111162. Johann Adam Stoltz, born 11 April 1786 at Kutzenhausen. Johann Adam Stoltz married Maria Eva Jordi (sometimes spelled Jordy) 7 July 1807 at Kutzenhausen, Alsace (Bas-Rhin), France. Johann Adam and Maria Eva (Jordi) Stoltz and their children left Kutzenhausen in 1828 and came to America and became one of the many pioneer families that settled in Wabash County, Illinois.
Johann Adam Stoltz lived at Kutzenhausen, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. He was a shepherd. People who made a living off the land were called agriculturists and herdsmen. The agriculturist was a grain farmer. He also had fruit trees, vegetable gardens, milk cows and goats, pigs, chickens, geese, and ducks. The herdsmen specialized in the raising of animals. He, too, would have fruit trees, vegetable gardens and fowls at his home in town where he lived. Adam was a shepherd or raiser of sheep and perhaps some goats. He rented his land from the peasants. There were no fences so the animals had to be kept together while grazing. In the evening the animals would be corraled in a portable pferch, meaning ‘shut in tightly together’. The next evening the pferch would be moved to a new location adjacent to the preceding night’s location. By this method the land was organically fertilized.

113. THEOBOLDT STOLTZ
Theoboldt Stoltz, son of Johann Balthasar Stoltz and Maria Catharina Schumann, was born about 1698 or 1700, Oberbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany.
Theoboldt Stoltz married Margaretha Wagner 4 May 1723 at Oberbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany, Margaretha Wagner was christened 19 April 1705 at Niederbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. Margaretha probably was born 17 April 1705.
At this date it is safe to presume that most of the Stoltz family were Lutherans. The Lutherans strongly believed their babies should be christened no later than three days after birth. If a child died before being christened, they believed this child would not go to heaven.
Margaretha Wagner’s father was Hans Wagner Jr., born about 23 November 1671 at Oberbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany, and her mother was Anna Maria Sturm. See Number M-122, page 38.
Theoboldt and Margaretha Stoltz had an only son.
1131. Georg Jacob Stoltz, born 8 August 1723 at Oberbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. See page 14.
Theoboldt Stoltz died 10 November 1724, a young man. Burial is at Oberbetschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. No information on Margaretha’s second marriage, other children or her death.

61. EVA MARIA STOLTZ
Eva Maria Stoltz was born 16 January 1808 at Kutzenhausen, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. Eva is the daughter of Johann Adam Stoltz and Maria Eva Jordi. See Number 111162. Eva Stoltz is of the seventh generation of the Stoltz family in Elsass-Lothringen, Germany, now Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France, and the second generation in America.
Eva was christened in the Lutheran Church at Kutzenhausen, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. She was called by the affectionate name, ‘Vieve’.
Eva Maria Stoltz was united in marriage to Georg Friedrich Marx 17 July 1827 in the Lutheran Church at Kutzenhausen, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. Georg Friedrich was born 6 October 1806 at Reimersweiler, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. In France Georg Friedrich was a day laborer.
July 17, 1827 there were married in the church Georg Friedrich Marx, son of Martin Marx, day laborer at Reimersweiler, and Margareta Jordi, a married couple, and Eva Stoltz, daughter of Adam Stoltz, shepherd at Feldbach, and Eva Jordi, a married couple.
Georg Friedrich was always called ‘Freddie’ or ‘Fred’. Fred’s father was Johann Martin Marx, born 11 December 1773 at Reimersweiler, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany, now Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. Johann Marx went by his middle name, Martin. He died in 1837, nine years after his son came to America. No information on Fred’s mother, Maria Margaretha (Jordi) Marx. She was a sister to Johann Adam Stoltz’s wife, Maria Eva Jordi.
Fred’s grandfather was Philip Heinrich Marx, born about 1729 at Preuschdorf, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. He was a tailor. Philip Heinrich Marx married Eva Margaretha Wilhelm. Eva Wilhelm was born about 1734 at Klimbach, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. Philip Heinrich Marx died 15 March 1779; burial is at Reimersweiler, Elsass-Lothringen, Germany. Eva Margaretha, his wife, died in 1793; burial place not given, but most likely at Reimersweiler.

63. MARIA MAGDALENA STOLTZ
Maria Magdalena Stoltz was born 23 July 1814 at Niederkutzenhausen, BasRhin, Alsace, France. Maria Magdalena's father was Johann Adam Stoltz and her mother was Maria Eva Jordi. See Number 111162.
A review of the 1830 census for Northampton County, Moore Township, Pennsylvania, lists only one female child of age five years and under. This child would be Dorothea, Johann Adam's and Maria's youngest child. This means that Maria Magdalena had died before June 1830. This information was provided by the Federal Archives and Research Center, South Pulaski Road, Chicago, Illinois. A search of the Lutheran Church records of Northampton County, Pennsylvania,  not reveal the date of death or the place of burial of Maria Magdalena. It is probably safe to presume that she is buried in Moore Township, Pennsylvania.

64. JOHANN GEORGE STOLTZ
Johann George Stoltz was born 17 February 1817 at Niederkutzenhausen, (Bas-Rhin) Alsace, France. Johann George was the son of Johann Adam Stoltz and Maria Eva Jordi. See Number 111162. Johann was always called 'George'. He joined the Lutheran Church at Kutzenhausen at an early age.
George Stoltz emigrated to America with his parents in 1828 and settled in Moore Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. Here George worked at the carpenter trade and perhaps worked in the coal mines. He followed the carpenter trade until 1850 when he purchased his first land in Lick Prairie Precinct (Stoltz Prairie) and began farming.
In 1834 the Stoltz family, including George's sister Eva Maria (Stoltz) Marx and her family, left Pennsylvania for Wabash County, Illinois. Upon arrival, the family 'squatted' on the S.W. 1/4 of the S.E. 1/4 of Section 20, Township 1 North, Range 13 West of the 2nd Principal Meridian, Lick Prairie Precinct, Wabash County, Illinois. At this time, George and his brothers Adam, Fred and Ludwig were still single. Of the boys, George was the first to marry.
In 1836 George helped his father, his brothers, and others to build the first Lutheran Church, called the Jordan Creek Lutheran Church, in Wabash County, Illinois, about one mile west and one-and-one-half miles south of Lancaster, Illinois. See Wabash County map. George lived with his parents and followed the carpenter trade. He helped his father on the farm.
George Stoltz married Margaret Hinkle 14 March 1841 in Edwards County or Wabash County, Illinois. Margaret Hinkle was born 1 February 1821 in Davidson County, North Carolina. She was the daughter of Peter Hinkle III, born 10 September 1796 near Rowan County, North Carolina, and Elizabeth Wilson, born about ' 1800 in Rowan County, North Carolina. Peter Hinkle and Elizabeth Wilson were married 3 February 1820 in Rowan County, North Carolina. See Hinkle Family Lineage. Shortly after his marriage, George rented a farm in the vicinity of Friendsville, Illinois. He farmed and did carpentry work for the next nine years. In 1850 he purchased his father's homestead 80 acre farm -- the E. 1/2 of the S.E. 1/4 of Section 20, Township 1 North, Range 13 West of the 2nd Principal Meridian, Lick Prairie Precinct, Wabash County, Illinois. George and his family moved in with his father and stepmother and continued to live with them until his stepmother, Susan (Marx) Stoltz's death about 1860. His father continued to live with George and his family and with his daughters, Eva Maria Marx and Dorothea Barnhart.
Sometime during the late 1870's or early 1880's, George built a new twostory house and a barn from commercially sawed lumber. This house was just south of the old log house which was then used for other purposes. George was a successful farmer and purchased additional acreage. In 1864 he purchased 80 acres for $850 from William Mahon; this acreage lying just across the road west of his farm, described as the S. 1/2 of the S.W. 1/4 of Section 21, Township 1 North, Range 13 West of the 2nd Principal Meridian, Wabash County, Ill. In 1866 he purchased 40 acres for $390 from George Schearer described as the N.E. 1/4 of the N.E. 1/4 of Section 29. This acreage was formerly owned by Henry Boden, whose sister Carolina E. Boden married John Fornoff, Sr. See Branch II, Boden Family Lineage. George purchased another 80 acre tract, the date and price of purchase not actually confirmed, located about two miles south of Lancaster, Illinois, described as the E. 1/2 of the N.E. 1/4 of Section 16. See Wabash County map.
George Stoltz was a civic-minded citizen. He had a strong belief in the education of the children of the community and was a strong supporter of the Jordan Creek Lutheran Church located about two miles north of his home, near Lancaster, Illinois. In September of 1852, George was listed as a subscriber to the Jordan Creek Lutheran Church Club whose function pertained to the church's finances. In 1853 he was elected a trustee of the Jordan Creek Lutheran Church, a position he retained for twelve years.
In April of 1874 George was elected Trustee of Schools for Township 1 N., Range 13 West, Wabash County, Illinois. He held this position for two consecutive terms. He was instrumental in organizing School District #10 for Stoltz Prairie, the name given the vicinity where the Stoltz's lived. The nearest schools to Stoltz Prairie were Buzzard Roost, Cabbage Corner, Lick Prairie, Armstrong and Long Prairie. See Wabash County map. The school district was duly formed and established by general law and was called Stoltz School. Three school trustees or directors were elected. The Wabash County map shows Stoltz School District #10's boundary by dotted lines. On 11 April 1870 George Stoltz and wife Margaret conveyed by warranty deed to trustees of Stoltz School District #10 a 100 foot square off the N.E. corner of the E. 1/2 of the S.E. 1/4 of Section 20, Township 1 North, Range 13 West of the 2nd Principal Meridian, Lick Prairie Precinct, Wabash County, Illinois, for the sum of $5 for said tract of land to be used for school purposes and said property to revert back to the original property when abandoned for school purposes: filed and recorded 24 June 1871, 11 A.M. at the Wabash County Court House, Mt. Carmel, Ill. A log school house was promptly constructed and the first school session was held in the spring of 1872. Several years later the log school house caught fire and burned. A new frame building was constructed about 26' x 42' facing east. School was held in the building until the close of the school year in 1925. My mother and her brother and sisters attended this school. In 1925 it was sold to Norman Stoltz whose farm was one-fourth mile south of the school site. A new school building was immediately constructed facing north. In 1939 this building caught tire from an overheated coal furnace and burned, destroying all of the school's records. A new modern school building was erected on the same site with a basement and ventilated heating system. School was held in this building until 1948 when the district became a part of the Consolidated Wabash Community Unit #348, thus ending 75 years of service to the community and youth of Stoltz Prairie. The Stoltz School building after the consolidation was moved to Lancaster and used for the sixth grade. A few years later the building was purchased by the Ruritan Club and moved to its present location in Lancaster, Illinois.
From the records that were available at the Wabash County Court House, family records, and memory of older natives of Stoltz School District #10, a partial listing of teachers was obtained. Rural schools at this time and until about 1900 conducted a fall term, a winter term, and a spring term, making the school year a total of four to eight months. It is unfortunate that the name of the first teacher and several subsequent teachers of Stoltz School are unknown. It is known, however, that Sam A. Mayne and William Wetzel taught one or more school years, but the dates are unknown. Both of these men later became county superintendent of schools. The first county superintendent of school's office was located at Friendsville, Illinois. Friendsville at this early date was considered a large town, boasting of two doctors, an ice house, a grist mill, a feed store, two general merchandise stores, and a United States post office.
