Jacob and Sarah Kurtz
Jacob Kurtz (1782-1853) and Sarah Kurtz (1791-1877) are our 3-greats grandparents on Mom’s side. Jacob is descended from immigrant Johannes Kurtz. Sarah, called Sallie, is descended from immigrant Abraham Kurtz. In his Biographies from Historical and Biographical Annuals, Morton Montgomery states that in 1809, the year they married, Jacob and Sarah purchased the “old Morgan farm” where they lived until 1847 when they erected the “buildings at Kings” where they lived out their lives. Their four children were John K, Jacob K, Abram, and Catherine.
