  • Notes 
      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.
