Chapter 9.1.11.4

Wesley A. Quanz

By Gail L. Quanz

 

My Great-Grandparents were:

            Johann “Adam” Quanz. - I've been told that he and his brother came here from Germany.  They came to the U.S.A. for religious reasons and/or to escape a war at the time.  My uncle Howard stated, "As I understand my Grandfather & brother came to this country by hiding on a boat to get away from Germany, because of their religion.  It seems Germany was about to stop all.  They were both very religious.  My Dad told me his father was a strong believer in the Bible and was very strict in his beliefs.

            Our records show Adam Quanz was born Aug. 14, 1831 in Buchenan (or Buchanau? jq) Keichessen (KurHessen? jq), Germany.  He married Elizabeth Kincade, born Dec. 20, 1828 at Washington, New Jersey.  Adam Quanz died Sept. 28, 1906 at Glade, Kansas.  Elizabeth Kincade Quanz died Jan. 20, 1898 at Glade Kansas.  Both are buried at Glade, Kansas.

            The 1850 USA census shows, Township of Mission (difficult to read gq) County of Sussex, State of New Jersey " Adam Quince (the last name letters are hard to determine exactly gq) - age 19 - Male - Laborer.  The line above Adam shows, "Elizabeth Kincade - age 23 - Female - Laborer.  They were on the Stephen F. Margarum farm valued at $20,000.

            The 1870 USA census shows, Jackson Township, in the county of Union, State of Ohio, "Quantz, Adam - 37 - Male - White - Farmer value of property $500 (the lowest shown on the page, they lived in a dug out. gq) - place of birth Darmstadt - mother and father of foreign birth."  It also shows Elizabeth - 41- as "keeping house" and the following children; Anna M. 17, Charles 15, Maria 13, Emily 11, Harriet 7, Edward 5, John 11/12 born July 19, 1969.  Anna, Charles, Maria & Emily were born in New Jersey; the rest were born in Ohio.

            I have this information on Valentine Quanz. He was born in Frankfurt, Germany. He married Minnie (the only name I have).  I have some more info on Valentine but I'm not sure he is the brother of Adam.
