Wirts/ Werts from PA

Journal by Mollib

Still no luck. My great grandfather came from a cabbage patch, I am sure. He hasn't left much of a trace.

May I suggest that you give us the name of your great grandfather, and any other
information that is connected to him. This would help us to help you.
Take care and best wishes with your research.

Gee poorone, you caught me twice! I think I was just writing my frustrations..:)

M great grandfather was Adam Werts or Wirts/Wirtz or any close spelling. Not sure he was literate.
He was born Sept./Oct. 1818 in PA, county has escaped my memory, the county begins with W, but not Westmoreland.
Will add later. His first wife was Sarah Strouse, not sure where he married her, but she gave him 5 sons and is buried in Preble Co., Ohio. They were German Baptist. His second wife, my great-grandmother was an adopted child, Sarah Snodgrass.
She was born in Ky. She is also buried in Preble Co., Ohio, next to Adam, but in Spring Lawn Cemetery in New Paris,Ohio.
They had 3 children, oldest boy died at birth, Girl was Frilla Mae, and my Grandfather, Jacob Charles Werts/Wirts. These
two are also not living, nor are my aunts and uncles.

Any info that could give me a clue back to his origins would please me no end.
Thank you.

Hello my brain went south on me, the county of origin was Lancaster Co. Pa....a family member once told me he saw his discharge papers and that is the county he listed.

After nearly a year, nothing more to add on Adam Wirts. I did however find out that they sometimes went by their middle name.
He could have been Hans Adam, or Johann Adam. But notihing there so far.
