Abram Kurtz (1820-1908) is our 2-greats grandfather on Mom’s side. Abram lived all of his life in Berks County, Pennsylvania. He was born on the Morgan Estate which he later farmed. He and his wife Barbara Fisher Stoltzfus had seven children who reached adulthood. In his Biographies from Historical and Biographical Annuals, Morton Montgomery described Abram as “one of the grand old men of Caernarvon Township, and as such was respected and esteemed by all who knew him.” His parents were Jacob (1782-1853) and Sarah (Kurtz) (1791-1877) Kurtz.
