INTRODUCTORY. 



To prepare a genealogical record of the descendants of a 
paternal ancestor, who lived near two hundred years ago, and 
their classification in family order, is no ordinary task. Indi- 
vidual family records are required, which, in many instances, 
have been difficult to secure, either by reason of not compre- 
hending the object of the work, indifterence, or because the 
records have been destroyed. There is an inate disposition 
on the part of many good house-wives to consign to the 
flames all old faded scraps of writing found in times of gen- 
eral house cleaning, thus often destroying the golden egg from 
whence much coveted information might be derived. The 
writer of family history is in many respects dependent on the 
individual reports made by ditiereiit members of the same 
family, thus placing him in the embarrassing position of 
deciding between contlicting reports, and selecting that which 
he may think most correct. 

The historical matter presented in this work was selected 
with care — from reports made by the older members of the 
Waltz family, and will be found not only interesting to the 
Waltz families of the present time, but will be of the utmost 
importance to future generations in forming a correct history 
of their ancestry. 

The task has been attended with a great deal more labor 
than the writer auticpated when at first engaged in the work, 
and whether well or ill-done, must be left to the judgment of 
tiiose especially interested in the work. 

In the (te.vkai.o<;icai. Rec<>kd many names have doubtless 
been omitted, and others a wrong post -office address given, 
or names misspelled, but before passing a severe criticism, 
please ask yourself this question: *' Did /send him the 
names and post-olfice address of my family as he requested, 
or any historical matter coiuiected with my ancestry ? 

The classification of the Gkxealogical Record in family 
order is so arranged at to brina each individual family 



IV INTRODITTORY. 

together, and at the same time enable all tho?e of Waltz 
blood to trace a direct unl.n-oken line to the recognized head 
of the "Waltz families. 

The "Waltz family in the war. for the preservation ot the 
Union, forms an interesting feature of this work, as it not only 
gives the names of such as did voluntary military service, 
but it shows on which side the Waltz family may be found 
when liberty and justice are trampled upon, or human rights 
assailed. 

For the organization of those of kindred ties into a family 
association, and their meeting in annual reunion for the pur- 
pose of forming new and renewing old acquaintances, thus 
perpetuating sociability, fraternity and brotherly love among 
the "U'altz families. We are all deeply indebted to David 
Waltz, of Wadsworth, O.. and his family; S. D. Waltz, of 
New Philadelphia. 0.; E. L. Waltz, of Jelloway. O. ; D. S. 
Waltz and Elias Waltz, of West Cairo. 0. ; .Jeremiah Weaver, 
of Beaver Dam. 0.; George W. Waltz, of Whittlesey, 0., 
and Paul Waltz and his family of Sharon Center, O. 

In conclusion I submit the work before you to your favora- 
ble consideration. L. WALTZ.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF AITHOR. 



^KXiRAPHlLAL SKETCH OF THR AUTHOR'S LIFE. 



Dear Reader: 

The family and iViemls of the author think it only just. 
that in a history of this kind, a lirief account of his own lil'e 
should be given ; but. owing to modest scruples on his part, 
making him hesitate to write concerning himself, I. his 
daughter, will attempt to till the deficiency. 

L. Waltz was born near Miaiuisburg, Ohio. March iCtli. 
183o, and reared on a farm. He received an ordinary- com- 
mon-school education, attending a few days a week through 
the winter months for five or six years. It seems almost 
•wonderful that pupils made any progress at that time, the 
country schools being so very poor compared with those of 
the present day. After the death of his mother, in 1S52, he 
apprenticed himself to Phillips Oc Gebhart, at the blacksmith 
business. After serving his apprenticeship, he became a full 
partner with this firm, and remained in co-partnership with 
Phillips a number of years. 

In lS-54 he was married to Sarah Ann PafT. To them three 
children were born, all daughters. 

When the rebellion broke out he enlisted as a private sol- 
dier in Company H, 35th regiment. Indiana Volunteer Infan- 
tr\'. In Septemiier 1S(')1 his company elected him second 
lieutenant. In IStjii he was promoted to tirst lieutenant for 
meritorious services. 

The reiriment to which he belonged were styled the " bloody 
Irish."* and were never spared when long marches, dangerous 
exploits, or fatiguing labors were required ; but he never 
missed a day's duty. In November 1SG2 he was breveted 
Captain of Engineers, and assigned to the 3d Battalion 
Pioneer Brigade. He superintended the building of the 
fortifications at Gallatin, Tenn. On hearing of General 
Kosecranz's forces moving on the enemy at ilurfreesboro. he 
left his commund in charge uf a subordinate ollicer, and pro-

oeeded to the front, but was captured by a rebel ?quad near 
Lavernge. Tenn., and taken to Tullahonia, from whence he 
escaped the same night of his capture, and reimned to the 
Union lines in time to take an active part in the second and 
third day's battle at Stone Kiver. 

In June 1S(33, he resigned his conmiission in the 35th 
Indiana, for the purpose of accepting promotion in an Ohio 
regiment. On his return home, he organized the 12th regi- 
ment. 0. X. G.. from which he received a commission as 
Colonel. 

The 12th was afterward consolidated with the 2d regiment. 
and he re-entered the United States service as Lieutenant- 
Colonel of the 131st Ohio, and was assigned to the command 
of Ft. Marshall, Baltimore. At the expiration of his term of 
service, he was tendered a Captain's commission in the oth 
United States Kegular Cavalry, which he declined, but 
returned to his family, and engaged in various pursuits until 
1ST<J, when he and J. St. John Clarkson, of Dayton, Ohio, 
established a workingman's paper, known as the Saturdaij 

In 1S7S he bought a small tract of land near Alexanders- 
ville, Ohio, where he has been residing for the past six years, 
engaged at farming and blacksmithing. 

In 18»)7 he invented the Harpoon Hay Fork, but was 
defrauded of its patent. He is also the inventer of a street 
railway track cleaner, a spring-tooth cultivator, and several 
other useful implements, but by reason of an imdue con- 
fidence in humanity, and a natural liberal disposition, he has 
not accumulated a large competence for himself. 

He, together with his family, have for a number of years 
been members of tlie First Reformed Church of Dayton, O. 

In politics he is independent, and looks with contempt on 
strictly partisan advocates. 

For the past two years, he ha* devofed the greater part of 
his time to the interest of the Waltz families, editing a col- 
umn in the Sntnrdny Peoph for them, correcting and revis- 
ing communications, studying tlieir early history, and endeav- 
oring to learn tlie names of all their ancestors, and trace 
them to the original family. 

Yours verv trulv.

TRACING .VXCESTORS. 



TRA.CIXG THE ANCESTRY. 



The labor required to correctly trace a line of ancestry, be- 
yond the fourth generation where no special records are kept, 
may be easier imagined than performed. 

The ^\'ALTZ Genealogical Record is traced to Frederick 
Reinhart Waltz, through his son John Reinhart "Waltz. 
Whether John Reinhart Waltz had brothers in this country 
is not positively known, but in comparing reports from sev- 
eral of the older Waltzes, the writer inclines to the belief 
that Michael. Joseph, and Hans Martin ^\'altz. who came to 
America in 1750. were brothers of John Reinhart Waltz. 
This belief is based on the harmony a comparison of several 
different reports produced. The first named Michael is reported 
as having four sons, wiiose names were: Reinhart. Peter, 
John, and George, and that George went West many years 
ago. This, undoubtedly, is the same George Waltz who settled 
in Floyd County, Ind.. in ISIO, and that they were nephews 
of John Reinhart Waltz, is based on reports calling the 
one uncle Reinhart. and the other, brother Reinhart Waltz. 

Other reports point to Haus Martin Waltz as the father of 
Frederick, Daniel, and Jacob Waltz. Whether these three 
sons represent the heads of the second, third, and eighth 
branches of the sixth division, the writer is not warranted in 
in saying; the evidence is sufficient to make it a direct truth, 
and if not a truth then a very strong coincidence. If this 
theorj' be true, then the Waltz families represented by the 
first four and eighth branch of the sixth division are descend- 
ants of Frederick Reinhart Waltz, through Michael and Mar- 
tin, brothers of John Reinhart Waltz. In several of the 
above Ijranches the name of Jacob and JIartin were specially 
favored. This is not proof tiiat they bore the name of tiieir 
father or grandfatlier. but according to their custom indicates 
the same. But while we have no positive evidence of the 
near kinship, we [accejit tiie theoretical, and extend to each- 
other tiie brotherly hand of true fellow-liip. 



Oni PIONEER FATHERS. 



OUR PIONEER FATHERS. 



Those of our pioneer fathers who first settled in the State 
of Pennsylvania, nearly all lived to a ripe old a.ize. They 
brought with them the plain, temperate, health-giving habits 
of Swiss life. They also brought up and trained their chil- 
dren in this mode of living, and as we recount the longevity 
of the Waltz families, we have the Ijlessed assurance that 
our honored ancestry were obedient to the laws of God. In 
the natural, their temperate modes of living, and industrious 
habits, give strength and vigorous health to the body. In 
the divine, they honored their parents, that their days might 
be long in the land which the Lord their God had given ihem. 
Thus with physical health and faith in God, they persevered 
against adversity, and regarded with indifference the trials 
and hardships of pioneer life. And as time rolled on their migra- 
tion was westward until in the infancy of IbO), in the 
morning of the nineteenth century, when the first streaks 
from the rising sun of the young -State of Ohio were shootin«r 
over the hilltops of the East; when our hillsides were man- 
tled with the primeval forest : when our valleys were peopled 
by the dusky sons and daughters of nature, and wild beasts 
roamed at will over our prairies, then was planted the seed, 
that has continued to grow and to flourish until today we 
witness tiiis grand harvest. 

When our honored fathers — pilgrim like — crossed the Ohio 
and determined that this should be their home, their coming 
had not been heralded before. Old ac(iuaintances who had 
preceded them did not welcome them to lavi-hly furnished 
houses nor rii-hly spread tables. Old acquaintances had not 
preceded them — they were the pioneers. 

When they crossed the rugged Alleghenies. their jaded 
teams were not startled by the shrill scream of the locomo- 
tive ; when one of those hardy pioneer families were stricken 
in sorrow over the death of a loved one, or, perhaps, made 
glad over the advent of another little addition to tlie last

iiicreasiny; number in the household, the news wns not thishod 
bnck by the liizhtning speed of tlie telegraph to tiie friends in 
the East. Of ail the brigiit dreams they may have had of 
ease, and comfort, and plenty in the years to come, they had 
never dreamed of railroads ami telegraphs. Mowing machines 
and sewing machines were unknown, scliool-houses and 
churches were not found at almost every cross-road. Church 
spires and towering smoke-stacks did not serve as guide 
boards for miles around to the busy, bustling village. Man- 
ufactories, and churches, and villages, and school houses- 
aye, and cross roads were not there. 

But we find that tliis plant that was set upon the hillside in 
the morning, took tirm root in the virgin soil, and grew up 
simultaneously with the great State, has witnessed the spring- 
ing up of towns and cities, almost as if by magic; has seen 
the giant forest give way to expansive fields ; has seen the 
State criss-crossed with railroads, and bound together by tele- 
grapJis. and has seen the round log cabin with its mud-and- 
stick chimney, supplanted by the palatial residence. The 
spinning wheel and loom have passed away, or have been 
banished to some dusty attic, there to be found amid the 
drapery of cob-webs. In short, it has seen the wilderness to 
blossom as the rose. 

But have we only seen these changes, been silent specta- 
tors amid the kaleidoscopic bustle and toil that has wrought 
out these magnificent results ? Xay, we have had a hand in 
all this. All over this broad land, beaming fields, stately 
residences, cozy churches, comfortable school-houses, mechan- 
ical shops, eloquent orations, and pulpit appeals stand in liv- 
ing evidence that we liave been no idle lookers-on. We have 
been seen, and felt, and heard in every avenue of industry 
and enterpri>e, from the plow to the pulpit, and from the 
farm to the forum. But we have not only witnessed these 
things, not only been a party to progress iu times of peace 
and prosperity, but in tiie time of our country's peril, when 
men were called from the peaceful home to put on the 
panoply of war in defense of the beloved institutions of our 
country, we heard the call, only to ol)ey, and today we 
point with an honest pride to the noble record we iiave made. 

The iii-t(.>ry of but few familie- is so closely interwoven 
with the wari) an<l woof of the hi>torv of the State, while as 



OrR PIONEER FATHERS. XIU 

its braiu'hes have continued to spread and widen, many df 
them liave crossed tlie boundary into other' States, and have 
there taken root to grow up and form new families and new 
history. Phmted as we liave said in tlie mornins, we to-day 
behold the lengthening shadows as the sun of ISOO approaches 
the edge of its evening, and it is no egotism to say that our 
fathers who planted this seed, and nourished it in its tender- 
ness with the sweat of their toil, and who have passed over 
to their reward, will to-day look down from the spirit land 
upon their descendants, pleased to see their prosperity deeph* 
rooted in the rich soil of honor, nourished by the refreshing 
dews of integrity, and bringing Ibrth the sweet fruits of 
industrv. 



EXPLAXATIOX OF FIOITIES 



EXPLANATION OF FIGURE; 



Number 1 represents the reooirnized head, or most remote 
ancestor to which the families could be traced, and is used in 
connection with but one person in the tirst tive divisions. 

Number 2 represents children of number 1, and is used -in 
connection with but one person in the first tive divisions. 

Number 3 represents children of number 2, and is used in 
connection with the names of tiie five sons of John Reinhart 
"Waltz, who tbrm the first rive divisions of tlie Waltz Genealog- 
ical Record. in the following order according to age: 

First Division, Frederick \\'altz. 

Second Division. Peter Waltz. 

Third Division. Michael Waltz. 

Fourth Divi-ion, John Waltz. 

Fifth Division. S. P. Waltz. 

Number i represents children of number 3. and as number 
3 forms the head of each of the first five divisions, number 4 
forms the head of each branch in the first five divisions. 
Number 4 where found in the same division are brothers and 
sisters, and are first cousins to number 4 of the other 
divisions. 

Number 5 represents children of number 4, and are brothers 
and sisters where found in the same branch, and first cousins 
to numVjer 5 in the same division, and second cousins to num- 
ber 5 of other divisions. 

Number G represents children of number 5. and are brothers 
and sisters where Ibund between those numbered 5, and are 
first cousions to others numbered iJ in the same branch, and 
second cousins to number tJ in other branches of the same 
division, and third cousins to those numbered tJ in other 
divisions. 

Number 7 represents children of number C, and are l)rothers 
and sisters wliere found between those numbered <i, and 
second cousins to those nunil^ered 7 in the same branch after 
crossing number .5, and tliird cousins to those numljered 7 of 
other branches of the same division, and fourth cousins to 
those numbered 7 of other divisions. 



EXPLAXATIOX OF FKU'RES. XV 

Number S represents children of niiinber 7, and are brothers 
and sisters where found between those numbered 7, and first 
cousin to those numbered S after crossing number 7, and 
second cousin after crossing number 6. and tliird cousin after 
crossing number 5 in tlie same branch, and fourth cousin to 
number S in other branches of the same division, and fifth 
cousin to number S in other divisions. 

Number 9. 10 and so on are represented in tlie same man- 
ner, each additional number carries the relationship one step 
more remote between the diflerent branches and divisions. 

For the branches comprising the sixth division, these num- 
bers will apply in the same manner as tliey do in the other 
divisions, with the exception that they trace their most remote 
ancestor to the head of their respective branches, and unless 
a link can be found to connect the heads of these branches 
with each other, or those of the other divisions, no positive 
relationship between branches of the sixth division can be 
given. The numbers also show you the exact number of 
generations between you and your most remote ancestor. 

In the same branches, number -3 is father or mother, uncle 
or aunt to number 4 ; numljer 4 is iather or mother, uncle or 
aunt to number 5, and so on. 

The numbers are not a 13, 14, and 15 puzzle, but their study 
will be found an interesting source of amusement to the 
young, an agreeable and pleasant entertainment for the mid- 
dle aged, and to the aged will bring back fond remembrances 
of those who have long since been called to their haven of 
rest. 

The descendants of Frederick Reinhart Waltz are traced to 
the eighth generation. In the four first generations there are 
but two surviving members, namely. Wm. Waltz, of Oak- 
land. Md., representing the head of the fifth branch, fourth 
division, who is now in his eighty-ninth year, and David 
Waltz, of Wadsworth. Ohio, representing the head of tiie 
fourth branch, second division, who is near eisrhtv-three vear< 
old. 

Of those numbered o. or fifth generation, Wm. Waltz, of 
Mt. Moriah, Brown Co.. Ind., is probably the oldest, being 
near eighty-one years of age ; his name appears in the first 
brancli of the Second division. 

The next in age is Catherine Miller, of Kilkenney, .Minn.. 



xvi EXPLANATION' OF FIorRES. 

in her eii:litieth year, ami t'atlieriiie Airal, of Canibriilge 
City, Iiul.. and Rebecca Stickler, of Cincinnati, Apponoose 
County, Iowa, in tlieir #eventy-eii:hth year. There are 
scarcely any represented by number 5 but what are above 
sixty years of age. while in tlie sixth generation their ages vary 
from twenty to sixty-five. The seventh generation ranges 
from one to tliirty years of age, and the eighth from one to 
ten vears of a;:e. 



CORRECTIONS. 

On page IT the notice of Frederick Waltz, died in 1S49, 
should be to number 4. instead of number 5. 

In the report of the Waltz family in the war, the names 
of P'rank and Edward ^\'altz. of the second division, were 
omitted, and should read: Frank Waltz, of Sharon, Ohio, 
enlisted in the 16th regimjnt. Ohio Volunteer Infantry Band, 
was in Sherman's march to the sea, and served to the close of 
the war. Edward Waltz, of Whitehouse, Ohio, enlisted in 
the 120th regiment. Ohio Volunteer Infantry, was in ten bat- 
tles, including tlie Red River engagements, and served three 
years and three months.

By reason of receiving a very irregular regort of the above

family had from three to eight children not reported, the 
editor could not shape them in family order, hence the

SWISS EMIGRANT; 



Record of persons, named Waltz, who emigrated from 
Switzerland to America, as reported ]>}■ Prof. L. D. Rupp in- 
his collection of 30,(XX1 names of Swiss and ( Jerman emigrants 
to the State of Pennsylvania, between the years 1S77 and 
1776: 

Frederick ReiDharl Walt: 1731 Michael Waltz 1751 

John Peter Waltz 1738 John Jacob Waltz 1751 

Hans Martin Waltz 1738 Jost Martin Waltz 1752 

Hans Wolf Waltz 1743 Joel Waltz 1752 

John Reiiihart Walt: 1744 Johannas Waltz 1752 

Jobannas Waltz 1748 Christopher Waltz 1752 

John Waltz 1748 Johan Waltz 1752 

Michael Waltz 1750 John Ludwig AValtz 1753 

Joseph Waltz 1750 Hans Waltz 1753 

Hans Martin Waltz 1750 Chrif:toff Waltz 1753 

Jacob Waltz 1751 Frederick Waltz 1773 

In connection with the above we have the following list of 
persons whose names are spelled ditferent, but the pronuncia- 
tion being near the same, except in two instances, where one 
is spelled Voltzer, and the other Waltzer: 

Henn.- Voltz 1737 Johannas Voltz 17H4 

John Peter Voltz 1748 William Voltz 1773 

Hans Peter Voltz 1749 Conrad Voltz 1773 

Georij;e Voltz 1754 Jacob Voltz 1773 

Joseph Voltz 1751 Jacob Voltzer 1750 

Michael Voltz 1753 Frederick Waltzer 1750 

George Voltz 1750 

The name Waltz or Yoltz are undoubtedly the same, the 
different modes of spelling the name being due to the lan- 
guage spoken or written in their respective cantons. Within 
the past century tho^e of Baden and Wirtemberg have drop- 
ped the t, and write their names W-a-l-z, while within the 
past fifty years some of our American cousins have substi- 
tuted an s for s. writing their names Walts. These changes 
from the original are to a certain extent fancifid. and lead to 
a gradual alienation of kindred ties. It also places a barrier 
in the way of any who might at some future time wish to 
trace a line of their antecedants. 



100 WALTZ FAJriLY HISTORY 

The question has been frequently asked. Are we descend- 
ants of the same AValtz family ' we spell our names dilierent. 
Certainly you are, as evidence, examine any record you may 
have of your ancestry written fifty years ago. Neither is 
there a single instance where any of the \\'altz emigrants 
from foreign ports, prior to ISOO. recorded their names differ- 
ent from those given, Waltz. Voltz. A\'altzer, or Voltzer. The 
latter two may have no connection with the former. Ijut it is 
also reasonable to suppose that Waltzer was the original 
name, and in order to shorten to one syllable, the er had to 
be dropped. In the twellth century the name Waltzer 
was applied to a small community of farmers, who sought 
refuge during the Gothic dominion in a secluded mountain 
valley in the Alpine range, near the Rhine Glacier. These 
same people, also, first inhabited and rendered productive the 
frightful solitudes of Davos, which they received in fief from 
the Baron of Batz. in the year 1250. 

Three different .Swiss historians, in referring to this same 
people, one calls them the Waltzers, another the AValsors. and 
a third the Voltzers. It is also alleged that they were fugitives 
of the Alemanni, which is doubtful, and that they were of 
Cimbri extraction. This may be admissible, but it is more 
probable that they were a remnant of the Etruscans or Gallic 
Celts, who took refuge in the Khaetian Mountains, after being 
overpowered by the GJauls and Romans. Rotteck. in his His- 
tory of the World, says of them (page llS-119) : " The Etruri- 
ans, Etruscans, or Tuscans, named probably from a Pelasgian 
colony, were without doubt a Northern race, believed to be 
Iberian. Tliey were renowned for their commerce and nav- 
igation, and knowledge of human and divine affairs. Earlier 
than the Greeks they had found out the principles of a free con- 
stitution, and earlier than they, possessed a humane and 
equitable legislation, and finally they practiced earlier the 
mechanical and liberal arts." We shall have further occasion 
to refer to Swiss hi-tory. and will oifer a few remarks on the 
probable 

Origin of the Name \\'altz.. 

It has been intimated, the name Waltz, had its origin from 
the German dance, but this is a mistake, as we have a record 
of the name applied to persons five hundred years before the 



AXD GEXEALOGICAL RECORD. 101 

dance known as vnltz came in vogue. The two have their 
origin indirectly from the same source. Names originate in 
various ways. Persons of the same name, where they become 
numerous, are often designated by the name of their occupa- 
tion, or name of a special act. or trait in their character. The 
name ^^'a]tz is German, but of Latin extraction, and has the 
same definition as Voltz. in the Latin, or Yalce. in the French, 
meaning to move as a round body, circuhir motion, turning 
around or rolHng, as applied to rolling the gi-ound. The Ger- 
man says, •' Waha den grunde,'' or '• Waltzen de arde." 
Hence, when we take into consideration that agriculture has 
been the leading occupation of the Waltz ancestry as far 
back as the name can be traced; and as rolling the ground 
( Waha den grunde) was considered an indispensable part 
of the labor required in successful farming, can we -not rea- 
sonably conclude the name Waltz as originally applied to a 
person derived its origin from the nature of the occupation 
such person was engaged in, namely, rolling the ground? In 
speaking of such person the German would naturally say 
der Waltser, the same as any of us often do in speaking of a 
third person, say the blacksmith, the shoemaker, or the miller. 
The person to whom these names are applied may adopt 
them, and their descendants ever after be known by that 
name. 

Frederick Reixhart Waltz. 

The recognized head of the first five divisions of our family 
record is Frederick Reinhart Waltz, who was banished from 
his native land in IT^^l. He was the first man by the name 
Waltz to step on American soil. The causes that led to his 
banishment were his violent opposition to the increasing 
encroachments on civil and religious rights. The Constitu- 
tion of the Swiss Confederation declares a republican form of 
government, where all men are entitled to certain inalienable 
rights. In the seventeenth century the rich and powerful, 
supported by the crowned heads of Austria, began to usurp 
authority, and chose for their councils only their friends and 
relatives. By degrees these families perpetuated their pos- 
session of the government: by degrees the council renewed 
itself annually, until the Sovereiirn power became exclu- 
sivelv hereditarv in the families of the trreat council. Tluis 



102 WALTZ FAMILY HL-TORV 

by degree* the common people, altiiotiirh declared free liy 
their constitution, were ^o in name only. They were maile 
ineligrible in the voice of government, and subject to the 
dictates of a few rulimr families. 

An unjust acquired sovereignty, however good and wise it 
may be, never effaces by its virtues the stain of ori;:inal 
injustice, and always trembles for its power. Berchthold's 
old Grant, and the citizens" fundamental law laid in the 
golden chests ; but the ruling families had no desire to enforce 
them. Murmurings against the hereditary power of a few 
families began to burst forth in open revolts, but the ruling 
power, supported by decrees from tlie Pope of Rome and 
Austrian bayonets, enforced silence. Conspiracies were 
formed, the prisons, the executioner's block, and banishment 
followed. 

There lived there at the same time many wealthy men of 
respectable families, such as the P'ueters, W'erniers. Kupfers, 
Bondleys, Knechts, Herberts and otlieis. who mourned in sil- 
ence over the down-trodden rights of the common people, 
and lamented that the chartered prerogatives of the citizen 
could not be maintained against the power of those who now 
sat, like hereditary lords, in their council hall. 

These usurping rulers, in league with the Pope and lead- 
ing cardinals, kept adding fuel to the unchristian hatred they 
had inaugurated between Catholic and Protestant cantons, 
thus for a time diverted the attention of the common people 
from their actual oppressors. 

To unmask and expose the hypocrisy of the priest craft, 
and treachery to the constitutional rights of the people by 
the ruling families, our patriotic, liberty-loving, and noble 
great ancestor. Frederick Reinhart A\'altz. became a martyr to 
the cause of civil and religious liberty, for which he was Ijan- 
ished from his native Swiss home, in the Alpine range, to 
the wilds of America, in the year 1731. 

On his arrival in the city of New York, another insult, even 
worse than banishment, was i)eri>etrated on this noble advo- 
cate of the rights of his fellow-men. by the sale of his body 
into slavery, to pay his pa>-a^e across the sea, and re(piired 
to labor eighteen months to redeem himself. To the memory 
of this man. who suffered banishment from his home and 
family, and the persecution of enforced slavery for the cause 



AND GENKALOGKAL RKCORD. 103 

of liberty and justice, the Waltz families of America, esjjeoially 
those of his lineal descendant, owe honor and respect through 
all ages to come. 

Of the reputed sons of Frederick Eeiuharc Waltz we have 
no reliable report, except that of Joim Reinliart \\"altz, who 
emigrated from Switzerland to America in the ship Phctnix. 
October 20. 1744. and settled in Eastern Pennsylvania. We 
have no record of his lil'e aside of the names of his children 
and the banishment of his father. The sons of John Piein- 
hart Waltz were: Frederick. Peter. Michael, John and Simon 
P. or Samuel. (The latter name being in dispute, is made a 
special subject on another page.) 

Frederick Waltz, grandson of Frederick Reinhart.was mar- 
ried to Mary Seltzer in the year 1779, and located either in 
Berks or Schuylkill County. Pennsylvania. We have no his- 
torical record of his life. He died in 1700, leaving a wife, 
five sons and two daughters. We are indebted to J. L. Mac- 
Daniel, of Cambridge City, Ind.. a grandson of Jacob Watlz, 
for the following report of this family : 

"The recognized head of the Waltz families of Eastern. 
Indiana, including a branch in Ohio, and a number of fami- 
lies in Iowa. Wisconsin and ^Minnesota, was Frederick Waltz^ 
who died in Berks County. Pennsylvania, in 1700. Five sons 
and two daughters were left by his death, ere the eldest son 
had attained his majority. The eldest son was named after 
his father, Frederick, and born in 17S0. The second was a 
daughter named Catherine, born in 1782, and married to 
Christian Shell, both of whom are dead, and buried at Lewis- 
town. Pennsylvania. The third, John Henry, was born ia 
17S4 ; Jacob, 17S7; Peter, 1780: Mary JIagdelene, 1701. and 
Daniel, 1704. Mary was married to John Foust. and died in 
Henn." County, Indiana, many years ago. About the year

ties of York, Lancaster. Montgomery, Lehigh and others, in

farms, and prospered in a social and business way. leading 
exemplary lives. Frederick died in 1S411, Peter in 1S62, Jacob 
in ISOS, and Daniel in 1S69. They all reared large families 
who settled at dill'erent points in Indiana, and their children. 
in turn, followed the course of empire westward, until you 
can count tliem in almost every ^^'estern State. Of the elder 
"Waltzes, much can l)e said to their praise. They were honest 
and upright, progressive and prosperous. They established 
schools and churches, and built for themselves a monument in 
human hearts, more enduring than that carved by the hand of 
man in polished marble."" J. L. ]\IacD. 

Of Peter and Mifliael Waltz, second and third sons of John 
Eeinhart Waltz, we have a record to which their descendants 
can point with a feeling of pride, not based on the imagina- 
tion but on actual fai-ts, and exclaim "^My grandfather was a 
revolutionary soldier. 3Iy grandfather fought for my liberty 
and my country, IVoin the beginning to the close of the rev- 
olutionary war. My irraudfatlier was engaged in the battle of

Peter Waltz was born in 1751, and was married to ^Iis~ 
!Moon in 1773. who bore him one daughter and one son. But 
a few months Ijefore the birth of the son. Peter, with the lib- 
erty-loving spirit of his grandfather. Frederick Reinhart. 
swelling in his bosom, proceeded with his brother Michael to 
Boston against the bitter protest of his wife, wiio declared if 
he left her then siie would never live with him. Peter, prob- 
ably impressed with an idea that women often mean the con- 
trary to what they say was invulnerable, never dreaming that 
she meant to carry out her threat. He joined the colonial 
army, in which he served five years and eight months. ()n 
his return to his family his wife would not admit him to the 
house nor permit him to see the children. He plead with her 
to recall her threat, but she would not. He Itegged her to see 
his children, but she turned a deaf ear to all his pleadings. 
He had his neighbors and friends to plead his cause, but she 
-was obstinate and could not be prevailed on. She had said it 
and would take nothing back. 

Peter, mortified and discouraged, wandered aimlessly away. 
In 17'.)0 we find him in ^\'estmoreland County. Pennsylvania, 
where he married a Swiss lady named Eva Milliron. In the 
year ISO:) he. with his small famil}-, penetrated the wilds of 
AVestern Pennsylvania, and located in Mahoiung County, i ).. 
where he cleared up a farm and otherwise pro\'ided him-elf 
and family with the comforts of a home. He reared a happy 
family of three sons and four daughters. One of the dau;ih- 
ters dying, was the first person buried in the cemetery of ttie 
Waltz Church, near the junction of Summit, Wayne and 
^ledina Counties. Of Peter's first wife, we have no furtiicr 
record, excejit that a few montiis after lie had left, a «m w.i- 
born whom she named Jacob. She reared her two cliiMicn. 
and on September -I-, ISUO. Jacob was married to ^lis- .Mary 
Eerier, of Frederick. Md. In 1SM2 Jacob, with his wife and 
child, penetrated the forest and located in Tuscarawas County, 
O., where he cleared up a lartre tract of land and rean-d a 
large family, not knowing of the life nor near proximity in

which lie lived to his father. In the year 1S15. the old vet- 
eran. I'eter, hearing of a ^\'altz family residing in Tuscarawas 
County concluded, in company with his sons, to pay them a 
visit. Peter had no idea when he started on this visit that he 
was to realize that which he had plead for in vain thirty-tive 
years before — to see his son. But on arriving, after a few 
questions and explanations, the light broke forth, although 
they had never seen each other, the recognition of father and 
son was mutual. This was the son named Jacob, born to his 
first wife, whom he had plead so hard to see on his return 
from the revolutionaiy service. Their meeting was pleasant, 
and frequently repeated. A few years afterward another 
family named Waltz, reported to be in very destitute circum- 
stances, located in their vicinity. On hearing of this, the 
generous impulses of the old soldier were at once kindled. He 
told his wife, "Ich miis ga unci saann eh ich deiina ehhes helfa 
kon." I must go and see whether I can help them. But im- 
agine his surprise when he found the head of this family to 
be, not only an old soldier comrade, but his brother MichaeL 
who had been his associate from childhood, and the life of his 
life through all the hardships and perils of war. Michael, 
■who had fought by his side in fourteen of the most desperate 
battles of the revolution, and who was his most intimate as- 
sociate on the march and in camp until finally, during a 
severe engagement, they became separated, and a lapse of 
forty years before they met — words are inadequate to express 
the feeling of these two sturdy old veterans as they recog- 
nized each other. They embraced in ecstasy of delight, 
weeping for joy. In the year 1S2."<, Peter lost his beloved 
wife, Eva, and in lSi2. the old soldier himself laid down his 
earthly armor, and at the summons of the Lord put on the 
heavenly. 

Of the family of Michael Waltz we have a verj- limited 
report. His granddaughter. Mrs. Elizabeth Schrader, of Canal 
Fulton, Ohio, says, her grandfather, Michael Waltz, was born 
near Reading. Penn. When old enough to work he engaged at 
the shoemaker trade with his father, until seventeen years of 
age. when he entered the revolutionary service under (General 
Washington, and served seven years and seven months. (Jn 
his return home he married his cousin. Miss Elizabeth ( iower, 
with whom he had nine children, four bovs and five girls, all

of whom are dead, and their descendants scattereil. therefore, 
no address could be given. In ISIT liis wife died, when 
Barbara, his youngest daughter, kept house for him, until lS2i\ 
when tliey removed to Wayne County, Oliio, where he met 
his brother Peter. After tlie !uarriage of his daughter Bar- 
bara he made liis home with her until his death in 1S^3S. He 
was buried in the cemetery of the Waltz Church, near 
Doylestown, Ohio. 

Jacob Waltz, alter the last of his children were married. 
sold his estates in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, and removed 
with his wife to Brown County, Ind., where most of his chil- 
dren had located, and spent his latter years in their presence. 
He died March 17th. IS.'io, aged 78 years, and his wife died 
March 12th, 1803, aged Mj years. They left a large family of 
children, grand and great-grandchildren to mourn the loss of 
an honored grandfather and estimable grandmother. 

Of the children of Peter Waltz, by his wife Eva Milliron. 
much can be said to their honor and praise. They were faithful 
to their father and mother in providing the comforts of a home, 
and partook in a degree of all the privations and hardsiiips 
incident to pioneer life. They in their turn reared large and 
respectable families, many of whom are influential members 
of society, as well as honorable, upright, and estimable citi- 
zen. One point of special note was the Waltz Cornet Band, 
composed of the twelve sons of .lohn Waltz, eldest son of 
Peter Waltz and Eva Milliron. These boys are said to have 
at one time formed tiie best band of musicians in northern 
Ohio. 

David Waltz, of Wadsworth. Ohio, was born in Columbiana 
County Ohio, in 1802. He is the youngest son, and only sur- 
viving member of the Peter Waltz family, and with the 
exception of \Vm. Waltz, of (Jakland, Md., the oldest mem- 
ber of the Waltz family association. He is husband of the 
third wife, and father of seventeen children, twelve of whom 
surs'ive, and two of his sons sacrificed their lives in defense 
of their country in 18*32. He is the originator of the Waltz 
family reunions, and although in his eighty-third year, his 
mental faculties are not impaired, and his physical activity is 
better than most men at si.xty. To him and his family are 
due the honor of laying the foundation of the Waltz family 
association. 



lOS WALTZ FAMILY HISTORY 

^^'e now come to the recognized head of the fourth division. 
John AValtz, fourth son of John Reinhart Waltz, whose wife 
was Mary M. Hansen. Of the life of John Waltz we have 
no report, and although he had a family of twelve children, 
we have but a verv limited historical report of them. 

Jacob, the oldest son. settled near Chillicothe. Ohio^ Joiin 
and Elias settled in the Miami Valley, near Alexandersville. 
Ohio, and were recognized as among the most honorable, 
upright, and industrious men in this valley. John, by tact 
and perseverance, accumulated a good competence, which he 
invested in a farm purchased from Dr. J. Treon. and. through 
some deception or black art. the said Dr. J. Treon took the 
advantage, and afterward defrauded him of the farm and the 
■whole investment. His losses preyed so heavily on his mind 
that he died a few years afterward broken-hearted. Elias 
died of the cholera scourge in 1S49. 

Another brother. George R. Waltz, settled in Wayne Co.. 
Ohio, in lSo5. His son, G. W. Waltz, of Whittlesey, says, 
that they came in one of those large Pennsylvania emigrant 
wagons, made boat fashion, and of nights slept in and under 
the wagon. They remained in Wayne County but a shprt 
tiine when they removed to Whittlesey, where they started 
in the woods, and cut trees enough at one spot to make room 
for a cabin. Bears, wolves, deer, and turkeys were numer- 
ous. Venison, turkey, and Johnny cake were their main 
table supplies. Pork at that time, worth from fifteen to 
twenty cents per pound, was an expensive luxury. They 
soon cleared up a good farm, and the old cabin, with the mud 
chimney on the outside, was supplanted with a nice farm 
house. Thus by continupd industry and economy, one com- 
fort after another was added to the old homestead. After tlie 
death of Geo. R., his son Geo. W. purchased the homestead of 
110 acres, and enjoys tiie comforts of the place where he 
used to chase the deer and wild turkeys, and help to fell the 
first tree fifty years ago. 

Another brother, Wni. ^\'altz. is the only survivor of the 
children of Joim \\"aUz. He resides at (Oakland. Md.. now in 
his ninetieth year, atnl is the oldest member of the Waltz 
families. William remained on the old homestead when all 
his brothers and sisters left, and he al-o reareil a large family 
of children, who are represented in Maryland. \'irginia, ( )hio. 



AND GENEALOGICAL KEIORD. 109 

Missouri, Kansas. Nebraska, Iowa, Dakota, and Washington 
Territory. 

Simon P. Waltz, fifth son of John Reinhart \\'altz, had but 
two sons. Samuel represents descendants of tirst branch ol' 
fifth division, and John the second branch of said division. Of 
the life of Simon P. (or Samuel as the name is in dispute) we 
have no record, but if we may l^e allowed to judge from tiie 
general character ot his descendants, lie must have been an 
excellent man. 

This country cannot boast of a more uniformly, well- 
balanced, honorable, intelligent and enterprising class of citi- 
zens than the descendants of S. P. "Waltz. Samuel and John 
Waltz were his only sons, and were among the pioneei-s of 
Tuscarawas County. Coming into that county when but 
very little of the land had been taken up, and strange as it 
now seems, John settled on. and entered, lived and died at a 
ripe old age, on about the steepest, roudiest, and rockiest 
farm in the county, though within three miles of tlie beauti- 
ful plains of thousands of acres unsurpassed for l>eauty and 
fertility in the State, and which was still in the market at tlie 
same price.. Samuel settled down about three miles further 
east, and opened a cooper shop. The two important articles 
of furniture that graced his cabin was the loom and a safe. 
It is quite possible that he was the first man in tlie county 
who owned a safe. His safe was home-made of good oak 
boards, and instead of massive doors and combination lock, 
an oblong opening was made in the top, large enough to 
receive a silver dollar. Every ■' fip-penny-bit," shilling or 
other piece of money he got went into the safe, and laid there 
until the accumulation was sutficient to buy the farm. His last 
years were spent with his son Jacob R., in Ashland County, 
near Jelloway. His ashes rest in the little cemetery at Sand 
Ridge, and scores have risen up to call him blessed. His 
Barbara passed away while he was yet in the prime and vigor 
of life, and was laid to rest on the hill on the (jld farm, while 
he. though living to a grand old age. reniuineil true to his 
early love. 

The name of Simon P. A\'altz. father of Samuel and Jolm 
Waltz, is in dispute. David Waltz, of Wadsworth, claims 
that Samuel and John were his first cousins, and is positive 
that their father's name was Samuel, while the sons of Simon 



110 WALTZ FAMIIA" HISTORY 

are equally positive that their grandfather was named Samuel 
P. Tlie Bible definition of the name Samuel is. "heard of 
God." and that of Simon is. -'that hears, that obeys." If tiieold 
gentleman lived up to the definition given his name, there is 
little room for controversy as to which he may be known by. 
The Waltz families, comprising the sixth division, made no 
biographical report of ancestry, except what is given at the 
head of the first branch, and the following episode in con- 
nection with the «econd branch. The latter says that many 
years ago three brothers came from Europe by the name 
Waltz. After arriving here they separated. One went west, 
and was never heard t'rom. the others supposing him killed 
by the Indians. One of the others settled in a Dutch settle- 
ment, and some of whose descendants live in Westmoreland 
County now. The third brother settled in an adjoining 
county, and. by their interpretation of the name ^\'altz, he 
was called Woods. To prove this fact, ^^'oods. by some cause, 
invited Waltz to his daughter's wedding. As soon as he 
entered the house Woods exclaimed : "There is my brother I" 
And he had not seen him lor years. They ever afterward 
claimed to be brothers, although the name Woods was never 
changed, and many of his descendants now live in the north- 
ern part of Westmoreland County, Pa. The one named 
Waltz is the Daniel Waltz who heads the second branch of 
the sixth division. \\'altz Genealogical Record. 



THE WALTZ FAMILY AS SoLUIEKS 

Who Serve'I in the War for the Union— From 177o to ISO-J. 

In giving a report of members of the Waltz family, who 
participated in the various wars for the Union since 1775. it 
is impossible, in many instances, to give their rank, or name 
and number of regiment in whicli they -erved. It is also to 
be regretted that a full list of those who did military service 
could not be secured. 

The first on record was. Peter Waltz. Revolutionary service 
from April, 177o. to September. 17S0. Michael Waltz. Revo- 
lutionary service from April. 1775. to November. 17S-3. Dan-

ORIGIN OF THE WALTZ FAMILY REUXIOX.

General Rcv'iev. 



BY E. L. WALTZ, JKLLOWAY, 0. 

Early in the year 1>79 I rei-eived a printed postal card of 
which the following i~ substantially a copy: 

'•Yourself and family are hereby invited to l)e present at a 
"Waltz family reunion to be hold at the old Waltz Church, 
near Doylesitnvn, 0.. Friday. >^epteni!ier ]i'. ISTO. You art- 
also retpiested to invite any one related to the A\'altz family 
by blood or marriage.'" 



AND GENEALOGICAL RECORD. 115 

The day before the day set lor the reunion we took the train 
at Delta, 0., arriving at Doylestown, about 9 a. m., on the 
19th, and were soon at the grounds where we learned tlie 
meeting was to be. Here we expected to meet a few near 
relatives from Allen County, and possibly a few from Tus- 
carawas, and — we knew not who nor how many more, but 
found "the woods full of them."" 

speaking of the occasion, the \\'adsworth Enttr/irlse said. 
"The tribes of David. Peter. Joel. Israel. John, Levi, Benja- 
min, Reuben, Amos, James, Samuel. Thomas. Jacob, Sarah. 
Rachel, and others were there."" The same paper estimating 
the number present at over one thousand. 

The idea of a reunion of the Waltz family was first con- 
ceived by the ^Misses Calista and ilillie "Waltz, and enlisting 
the assistance and favor of father David and R. B. Waltz, 
steps were immediately taken to bring it about. '"Other old 
families." they said, "are holding tlieir reunions, and why not 
the Waltzesf " 

The day, one of the finest of the season, was one continued 
round of enjoyment. "Is your name Waltz, too;"" Where 
are you from;"" ^^'hat branch of the Waltz family do you 
belong to;" "What's your name;'" and many other similar 
questions were being continually asked and answered. 

A prominent feature of the occasion was the presence of 
the old Waltz .Silver Cornet Band, an organization tlien over 
thirty years old. The day was spent in hand-?haking. speech- 
making, and the renewing of old and I'orming of new acquain- 
tances. 

Thus was inaugurated the annual reunion of the Waltz 
family, an occasion we have learned to look forward to with 
plea-urable expectations. Each recurring year In-inging for- 
ward new faces and warm gi-eetings of old. 

A business session was held during the afternoon, looking 
to a permanent organization, at which the following ofiicers 
were elected : 

President. K. (t. Waltz. We-t Cairo. (J.; Vi(-e-Pre-ident, 
David Waltz. W;id>wor!h, O.; Secretary, E. L. Waltz, Delta,

New- Philadelphia. .0. 

The second annual reunion was held one year from the date 
of the first, at the same place. The number present was 
large, showing an increasing interest. At this reunion the 
following officers were elected: 

President. S. D. Waltz. New Philadelphia. O.: Vice-Presi- 
dent. David Waltz. Wad-worth, 0.: Secretary. R. B. Waltz. 
Akron. 0.; Treasurer, Joel Waltz, Akron, O. 

The third annual reunion was held at West Cairo, Ohio. 
September 29. ISSl, for which ample preparations had been 
made by the friends at that place, and the large number 
present was ample proof that the interest had not decreased. 
At this meeting addresses were made by a number, and ex- 
cellent music discoursed, and altogether this, the third reun- 
ion, was a grand success. The following officers were elected 
for the ensuing year: 

• President, .S. D. Waltz. New Philadelphia, O.; Vice-Presi- 
dent, David Waltz. Wadsworth. O.: Secretary. R. B. Waltz. 
Akron, 0.; Treasurer. Joel Waltz. Akron. 0. 

The fourth annual reunion was fittingly held at St. Matt- 
hew's Church, near Xew Cumberland, Ohio. The attendance 
' was very large, many having come a great distance to make- 
probably a last visit to those grand old hills, hallowed by 
many recollections of the past. A large number of the coun- 
try people around were also present to greet tlie visitors from 
abroad, who had in the years gone by been their neighbors. 
This meeting was held in a beautiful grove just across the 
road from a tall marble -haft that marks the last resting place 
of Samuel Waltz, who one year previous, at the West Cairo 
reunion, held the audience chained by his wonderful power as 
he spoke of these reunions as typical of a reunion to which 
many had already gone, and to which all are tending. 

Previous experience had proven that one day was not 
sutficient for an occasion of this kind, and this reunion was 
continued two days. Officers elected at this reunion were : 

President, Col. L. Waltz, Alexandersville, O.; Vice-Presi- 
dent, E. L. Waltz, .Jelloway, O.; Secretary. Rev. Alvin Waltz. 
New Cumberland, O.; Treasurer, Joel Waltz, Akron. O.

-whom none has taken a greater interest in, nor done more to 
perpetuate the "Waltz Family Association." The exercises 
■were held in a beautiful grove in the suburbs of this min- 
iature city, and as at all previous occasions, the attendance 
was large. Rev. Kaufl'man. of the English Lutheran Church, 
being president was called on to deliver an address. In the 
course of his remarks he alluded to the band above spoken 
■of as follows : "When a boy, I remember of going with my 
parents to a Fourth of July celebration when I saw what I 
thought to be the grandest sight in my life. A regular two- 
story, mansard roof brass band, and bass drum, red coats and 
vellow trowsers with blue stripes down the legs. I tell you 
that — to my mind — they were just ^^^'riffic. Well, that was 
the Waltz Band." Officers elected at this meeting: 

President, Col. L. Waltz, 'Alexandersville, O.; Vice-Presi- 
dent, Joel ^\'altz, Akron, 0.; Secretary, Jno. W. Waltz, Sharon 
Center. ; Treasurer, G. W. Waltz, Whittlesey. 0. 

At this reunion it was decided to hold the next at the 
National Soldiers" Home. Dayton. 0.. on Thursday and Fri- 
day, August 2S and 2'.i, 1^84. 

At the reunion held at ^^'est Cairo, arrangements were 
made with the Satunlay PeopU. a weekly paper published 
at Dayton, O., for the use of a column, which has been well 
patronized by the friends of the association, with both pleas- 
ure and protit. At the reunion held at St. ilatthew's, in 
Tuscarawas county, a suggestion was made to secure the names 
and post-office address of as near all the freundshatt as pos- 
sible, and publish in pamphlet, and the- President charged 
with that duty. As he begun the labor of securing the 
names, letters from various neighborhoods came urging him 
to insert some historical matter, and classify the name< as to 
the various branches of this now numerou.s family. The plan 
was changed and the work begun. Two years have been 
spent in working it up. and hundreds of letters written, and 
many dollars spent. The result is now before us— this beau- 
tiful and valuable book. For this labor and time Col. Waltz 
has in the way of remuneration the satisfaction of duty done. 
If the American people are remarkable for any one thing, it 
is for utter carelessness in preserving family history. But the 
Colonel has placed in our hands a book of inestimable value, 
and from which many, whose names appear on its pages, will

FIRST REUNION OF TIIE WALTZ FAMILY, 



The Tribes of DavlcL Peter. Joel hrael, John. Levi, Benja- 
min, lieuheiu Amos, James, Thomas, Sarah, Jacob, 
and Hosts of Others irere there. 



Friday, September 19. ISTO, was a fine autumn day, and the 
number to about lOOO. including guests, assembled in a beau- 
tiful grove on the old Everhard I'arm next west of the old 
Waltz farm, and less than half a mile west of the Waltz 
Church, where the counties of Summit and Medina corner. 
A stand was then erected in the grove, supplied with an 
organ. Vocal music, the old Waltz Band, and the Sharon 
Band, did excellent service during the day. 

The grove was early alive with people and teams. The 
greeting of old friends was warm and hearty, and many new 
friendships were formed. 

At 11 o'clock David Waltz called the audience together, and, 
after music by the Sharon Band, on motion of Charles M'altz, 
of Madison, Wis., E. J. Waltz, of West Cairo, O., was elected 
president of the day, who, after a short greeting, introduced 
the Rev. J. F. Sponseller. who thanked the throne of grace 
for the bounties of his hand, and the privileges we enjoy, 
making special allusion to the occasion of the meeting. This 
was followed by vocal mur^ic by the Waltz family, entitled. 
"Reunion,'' written and composed for this occasion by Israel 
Waltz, of West Salem, O. 

Father David Waltz was tiien called on for a few remark-;, 
and gave a brief account of the Waltz familv. This being

the lirst Waltz reunion he ever saw. he lioped a lull record 
would be made. His j^randtather came to thi> country in 
1744, by the name of -John Reinhardt Wahz. He then 
named his graudt'atlier's children, amoui; whom wa^ Peter 
Waltz, father of the speaker, wlio came to Wayne County in 
the year 1814. The year preceeding he came here, a boy 
twelve years old. raised in the woods, and lias met many of 
the red men of the fore-^t. He is the father of seventeen 
children, two lying on .Southern soil, and three died in in- 
fancy. The children's names are Joel. John,* Eii.* Frank, 
Benjamin, Reuben, Amos. Orvis, Salome. + Sarah Aiin.f 
Viola,! Lovina, Louisa. Fianna. An»elia. Cali,-ta Ann. Ange- 
liiie. This was followed witli the laniiliar vocal music. "AH 
Hail the Power of -Jesus' Name." 

Volunteers were then called on for remarks. The president 
gave some genealogical accounts of his ancestors, starting in 
Maryland in 17TS. and his total descendants now numbering 
1-27, of whom all but 2S are living. 

Uncle Jacob Waltz, of Allen County, was called out. and 
was introduced as the best temperance Waltz ever known. 
He was born in Jeflerson county in 1S13. and they called liini 
Jake. The family soon nroved to Tuscarawas County. He 
spoke of the hardships of that early life, and especially of 
the poverty against which they struggled, having ^lept on 
deer skins, which also served as covering. He paid an ex- 
cellent tribute to his mother, whose maiden name was Bar- 
bara Rinard. His father was also a cooper, and made bar- 
rels, many of which were used as whisky barrels, selling them 
for fifty cents each. By frugality he saved enough to buy 
eighty acres of land (llOo;. and from that time he succeeded 
better. He closed with the remark, "If you have any other 
Waltzes who can make as good a speech as that, drive 
them in." 

Loud laughter, and music by tiie Sharon Band. 

Rev. J. F. Sponseller then responded to a reque-t. address- 
ing the audience, contrasting: pre-ent reunions with that grand 
reunion beyond the river. 

Adjourned to halt'-pa-t two o'clock.

1'20 WALTZ FAJtILY HISTORY 

Substantials and delicaeie-;. wliich the \\'altze> ?o well know 
how to prepare, were there in abundance, and after all were 
filled, ba-kets lull were' left. 

At 2 p. M. order was restored with vocal music by a large 
■choir of Waltzes, who sang " The Christian's Future" and 
*' Come Over," at the conclusion of which Alvin Waltz, of 
Xew Philadelphia. Ohio, delivered an address, alluding to the 
name Waltz, tracing it to Germany, where a man inclined to 
dance was called " M'altz." [We think there is a possibility 
of mistake here. — Editor.] The happy phases of the reunion 
were spoken of, and a Christian union recommended, which, 
after the great change, ^^^11 re-ult in a permanent reunion. 

Music by the Sharon Band followed. 

Elias Waltz, of "West Cairo. Ohio, was then called out. He 
noticed two characteristics: One. that the Waltzes are good 
feeders, and, another is. that they know how to prepare it. 
Sixty years ago. less ten days, he was born. The speaker then 
alluded to his marriage, family descendants, etc.. in a humor- 
ous way, eliciting considerable laughter. 

" Nearer, my God, to Thee," was then sung by the audience. 

Business looking to a recuiTence of these reunions was then 
taken up. The following were chosen as a corresponding 
committee: Charles Waltz, 3[adison, Wis.; Alvin Waltz. 
2vew (."umberland, 0.; Reuben ^^'altz, Akron, O. ; E. J. 
"NValtz, West Cairo, 0.; Isaac W^altz. Independence. 0. ; Geo. 
W. Waltz, Whittlesey, O.. and .J. M. Waltz. New Phila- 
delphia. 0. The officers chosen are as follows : E. J. Waltz, 
President, West Cairo, O. ; David Waltz, Vice-President. 
■\Vadsworth, O. ; Joel Waltz, Treasurer, A\'adsworth. O.. and 
E. L. Waltz, Secretary, Delta, O. 

A committee on music was appointei] as follows: Reuben 
Waltz, Isaac Waltz, and Israel Waltz. 

During music by the band, and social conversation, the 
Waltzes passed in review past a certain point, where the 
names were taken down. Wadsworth and tiie surrounding 
counties, of course, turned out largely, but tiiere were per-ons 
present from Tuscarawas ( ounty, Allen County. Putnam 
County, Wisconsin, and Illinois. 

■ All in attendance enjoyed the occasion — esj)ecially the 
Waltzes. It is a milestime in the lives of many that will be 
pleasantly remembered. 



AND GENEALOGUAL RECORD. 121 

NOTES. 

The reason ^vliy the Waltzes are long-lived people, is 
explained by the bounties of their tables. There was a large 
surplus after feeding all present. 

There is only one editor known in the Waltz family, which 
may account for the fact that they are proud of the tribe. 

The Hag carried by the original Waltz Band, which was 
organized nearly thirty years ago. was carried by the band 
to-day. It will be remembered by the oldest citizens, that 
this Waltz Band drew the second premium at a band contest 
in Wooster about twenty-live years ago, whore thirty-two 
bands competed. 

In the matter of entertainment over night for those from 
abroad, Joel Waltz said he would entertain all who came, so 
long as he had a '• board to lay them on.'" 

We were mistaken for a Waltz several times at the reunion, 
because we " waltzed " around so naturally at the dinner- 
table. 

It is estimated that between five and six hundred present 
■were of Waltz blood, not including the "' side issues" and dis- 
tant relatives by marriage.— Madsicort/) Enterprise.

Switzerland is a Republic composed of twenty-two States 
called cantons. It bears the proud title of "Helvetian Kepub 
lie." Its history is very old, tlie oldest inhabitants known to 
histor\- being the Ilelveti of Celtic tribe. Those were again 
divided in tribes, but before these, a people lived there be- 
longing to the stone age. They knew not the metals. The 
first nation that established colonies were tiie ancient 



IL'L' WALTZ FAMILY HISTORY 

Etruscans. After tlinse people hecame united with tlie Ro- 
mans it became a I'roviiice of the Empire. The first colony 
was settled in the canton of Grisons by the Etruscans. There 
you find all the evidence of this. By the excavations you find 
remnants of anticiuity of this remarkable and artistic people. 
Vases, urns, vaults, themes or ruins of bath pillars, all of the 
most beautiful workmanship. These colonies were called 
Rhaetia. It is called so yet in poetn.-. forming also a part of 
Tirol. The southern valleys are verj' romantic. Those 
Etruscans or Latins formed the nucleus or spinal of the Ro- 
man nation, and it is womlerful what knowledge they had of 
agriculture, art. science, etc. Over the rest of Switzerland 
you find the ruins of Roman antiquity, but all of Etruscan 
workmanship concerning the artistic. 

The language of Switzerland is various. German is the 
prevailing tonirue, spoken in ditferent. dialects, changing 
somewhat in every canton. In the Valais, the canton of 
Vaud, Neufchatel. Geneva, part of Frybourg and part of 
Berne, the language is French, well spoken. The Italian is 
the language in Tessin and part of the Grisons. The Grisons 
speak German. Italian and Rhaetian. or Romanic. This is 
the language of the early Etruscan colonies. Xow let us bask 
in the sunny side of Lake Zurich, the home of the Helvetian 
tribe, Tigurini. The surrounding re^rion is a paradise on 
earth. The hillsides are covered with the grape, and the 
plains yielding a bountiful harvest to the tiller of the soil. 
Industrious people live here. In the background you see the 
Alps with their snowy crests. Zurich is the Athens of Switz- 
erland. A few miles south will bring us to the celebrated 
Monastry of the Lady of the Hermits, a great pilgrim shrine 
of the Roman Catholic Ciuirch. A little distant is the famous 
mountain Righi. The highest of a group of mountains sur- 
rounded by the lakes of Zug. Lucerne and Lowerty. Thou- 
sands of tourists or visitors come and ascend to the summit, 
from wiiich the beholder can have a beautiful panorama. 
The Swiss love tiieir mountains and are happy in their 
constant danger. Here you see them in their descent 
with their heavy milk-barrels strapped to their backs. 
bringing down from their mountain-pastures the product of 
their cows. Sometime'; you see a sturdy peasant with a 
bawlinp; calf la.-hed to his back, coming down the mountain. 



AND GENEALOGICAL RECORD. 123 

There is a primitive simplicity about the<e mountaineers. In 
the vicinity is Sempach. the battlefield. Here the proud 
Duke Leopold, of Austria, died. Here the hero Arnold, of 
Winkelried. made a breach with his body in the steelclad 
Austrian Phalanx, over his dead body rushed the libertydov- 
ing mountaineers with their battle-axes, pressing them, the 
Austrains. in a narrow defile. The banner of Austria falls. 
Knight of Arlberg takes it: he also falls. It is raised again. 
It falls the^ third time. Duke Leopold advances, takes the 
blood-stained banner in desperation. He also falls by the 
hands of a mountaineer. 

In the interior of Switzerland the bouses are very peculiar, 
and the architecture is highly picturesque, thus adding to 
rural beauty. The roof far-over-hangs the house as to give 
protection to its sides. Each story is ornamented with a bal- 
cony accessible from the outside by staircases. The style. 
however, ditfers with the cantons. The peasantry is also dif- 
ferent in the variety of costumes, with each canton. These 
costumes are quite charming in pictures, especially the ladies. 
Young girls may always be distinguished from married wom- 
en by their dress. In one canton the girls wear a headdress 
most singular; the saying is, such girls wear it that are in want 
of a husband. All honor to the Swiss ladies, for it was a 
woman that gave the first impulse for freedom. We will now 
proceed to Lake Luzerne, the lake of Wm. Tell. AVe will see 
the celebrated (jruetly Meadow. The wife of Werner Stauf- 
facher is the woman who, in her noble patriotic effort per- 
suaded her husband to shake off the Austrian yoke. Through 
his wife's influence Werner Stauffacher persuaded Walther 
Fuerst and Henry Melchthal. In the midnight hour of the 
7th of November, 1307, those three raised their hands to the 
heavens and swore to God. before whom peasants and kings 
are alike, to live and die faithful to each other for the right 
of their oppressed people. Each one of them had brought 
ten confederates. Those thirty men raised their hands and 
swore to a just providence to live for liberty or die for it. 
Among these men at the Gruetly Meadow was Wm. Tell, the 
famous marksman, well known in history. Let us hasten to 
the Bernese Highlands. From Thune, taking a steamer on 
the beautiful Lake of Thune. It was a June day when I 
the trip. By some it is considered that the Lake Thune 



124 WALTZ FAMILY IHSTORV 

possesses more beauty tliaii the rest of lakes in Switzerland. 
Next to this I like the Lake Geneva. Lake Thiine is sur- 
rounded on every side with mountains whose sloping sides, 
decorated with villas, gardens and ca-tles, forming a magnifi- 
cent landscape. There is the ancient castle of Spiez supposed 
to be founded by Altila. king of the Huns. Leaving the lake 
we come to the most sublime scenery in all Switzerland. 
The (Berner Oberland) Berner Oberland. Bernese Highlands. 
On this spot of ground lies the town of Interlaken. known to 
the Etruscans or Romans, receiving the name t'rom them. 
Inter means between. Lakus is lake. Between the lakes. 
Here we see all that is charming, the towering snowclad 
Alps. The snow-covered peaks and glaciers seem almost to 
overhang the valley. The stranger almost shudders to see an 
avalanche break from the summit of the .Jungfrau or Silver- 
horn. The population derive their living from the thousands 
of strangers that come to visit here. A distance from here 
is Lake Brienz. a spot noted for its songs. It is about the 
center of Switzerland. Here in the evenings of summer the 
Swiss gather. We find the young men and women devoted 
to social amusement, singing, playing and talking. You hear 
sweet voices and good music. The favorite air is ^'Rnnz de^ 
FaoAf5," signifying the rows of cows. Its origin is this : In 
the spring the inhabitants drive their herds of cows to the 
pasture on the mountains, often several thousand feet high, 
remaining there all summer, living in liuts or cabins. Here 
the butter and cheese is made, brought down at times and 
sold. The cow that yields the most milk is made the queen. 
She receives a large bell on her neck and always leads the 
Tan. She soon learns her superiority by horning every cow 
that will not follow her path. At the close of the sea-on they 
return to the valley for winter. This event is a great I'es- 
tival. Before descending the mountain the queen cow is dec- 
orated with flowers, ribbons and bells, and sometimes has the 
prettiest little girl of the party on lier back. The other cows 
march in rows behind her also decorated according. The 
peasantry accompany bj' singing the "Ram des Vnches'' or 
"Rows of Cows." 

Thus you see tiint tlie melody is connected with the most 
joyful season of tiie year, often producing home siikness to 
the Swiss abiding in a foreign countrv. Take it all, these

wonders of nature, the danger, all these surround a priniitiw 
people, and one that seeuis impressed with reverence due to 
religion and their Creator. The entrance of many cottages 
are surmounted with a verse from tlie Bible, sometimes with 
strange pictures, saints, a bee or ant, indicating the industry 
of those that live within. 

From the highlands I took my course across an immense 
mountain range to the valley of the Rhone, or the canton of 
Valais. We will proceed together. We take a narrow moun- 
tain path, scaling the heights, coming to the romantic hamlet 
called Aeshy, entering the valley of Fruetigen, known for its 
beauty, fertility, and its deep green pastures. 

We arrived at Kandersteg, the last village in the valley. 
Here the passage over one of the most interesting and most 
dangerous Alpine passes, called the Gemmi, begins. 

It would take me too long to describe what I liad to venture 
crossing this wild 8,000 feet high mountain pass. On the 
summit is a small lake, a little distance on a rocky mound, you 
see the valley of the Rhone, ilt. Rosa, and the entire Alpine 
chain, which separates .Switzerland from Italy. If clear, you 
may see the St. Gothard pass, and the Simplon to the right 
of the St. Bernard. Descending, is the valley of Lfjeche, cele- 
brated for its hot bath, which is greatly resorted to in the 
warm season. 

Through the valley of Loeche we hasten to the valley of 
the Rhone, passing the ancient city called Sion, full of Roman 
antiquities. Julius C;esar is suppo.sed to have built a castle 
here. Passing by we reach the base of the St. Bernard. 
It is Martigny. the old Octodurum of antiquity. I worked at 
my trade in this remarkable place. The pass over this part 
of the Alps leads you to the far-famed monastery of St. 
Bernard with its faithful dogs. It is a place of ever memora- 
ble history. Far back in the dim light of the past this 
place, Martigny, this valley of the Rhone, and this world- 
renowned Alpine pass, what turmoil and changes have tliey 
witnessed 1 First we see in dim light in their llowing toga 
the Etruscans, then the Gauls, again we see Hanibal or Anni- 
ball. the brave and skillfull Carthaginian, with his hosts 
passing this road. Now we hear the tramp of the Roman 
legions bringing with them the arts and agriculture. Again 
thev make room for the Goth. Huns and Allemani, de.-troying 



l-_'6 WALTZ FAMILY UISTORY 

everything; that art and civilization had accomplished. Then 
the Burgundians, tlie Franks or French, and then Savoy ruled 
over it, to be tinally ceded to the Swiss. Here, also, Napoleon 
I. crossed the St. Bernard. We hear the footsteps of the 
French army pouring into the plains of Italy, and hurling 
back the Austrians. But enough of it, peace reigns over the 
hills and dales, and the tocsin of war made room for plough 
and pruning hook. 

It is time to come to a close. Leaving Martigny. I came to 
St. ^laurice, the border of Valais, and entering the canton of 
Yaud, arriving at the lake of Geneva. Vaud is one of the 
most intelligent cantons. It is the home of the Vaudois, the 
persecuted Protestant sect, which had so much to endure for 
their religion, and whom Oliver Cromwell so well protected 
by threatening the King of France, and the Duke of Savoy. 
A busy, wideawake people, we see well kept farms and vine- 
yards, and everything is neat and attractive. 

Passing along the shore of Lake Geneva, I came to the 
castle of Ghillon, celebrated as having been the prison of 
of Francois de Bonnivard. the hero of Genevan Independ- 
ence, Vaud being then part of Savoy. This hero of Protest- 
antism was finally liberated by these people of Berne, when 
they occupied the canton of \ and. Lord Byron has illus- 
trateed the event in his ever memorable piece of poetry, the 
Prisoner of Chillon. 

Leaving the canton of ^'aud with its good, kind and intel- 
ligent people, I came to Lake Xeufchatel. and passing the old 
battlefield of Morat, the Swiss against the Burgamlians. A 
handsome pyramid marks the place where Burgundian pride 
and arrogance sneered and scorned the Swiss, liecause they 
asked God in fervent prayer not to Ibrsake them. Glorious 
was the victory of the Swiss. Their leader, Hans, of Hall- 
will, a while before the battle commenced, perceived, during 
the prayer, the sun breaking through the clouds, shining 
over the Swiss army, and taking this for a good -ign gave tlie 
signal for attark. 

I worked at my trade in Xeufchatel, and on leaving I vis- 
ited the old town of S(pleure. also (if Roman urigin. From 
here to Basle or Bale, tlie home of the Helvetian trilte, 
Ba\iraci. The city has a museum with many relics and 
antiquities of tlie Etruscan and lionian time. The Romans

having here a colony called Augusta RauiMconim. In 
every place I found the Swiss a good-natured people, indus- 
trious, honest, frank, hospitable, full of nierry-niaking, and 
most every one supplied with a good deal of mother wit, sel- 
dom in want of a good answer. But infringe their rights, 
and you will see how quick the situation changes. I have 
observed that if a man should praise his country, and lind 
fault with Switzerland, the native Swiss will say. Why did 
you not stay there? we did not tell you to come here. This 
the stranger often has to hear from the Swiss at the least 
occasion. 

Now, about the origin of the name Waltz. I believe it is 
Latin. As every name has a beginning, so this must have. 
We must go to the root of words. This is the word Vo?, the 
Latin having no W. but using V instead. The dance loalt^ 
received its name from the whirling round motion. This flit- 
ting, flying and inconstant moving is called in Latin, Volatllis. 
He that flies, goes suddenly, is called Volaiicus. Flight is 
called Yolatiiva. That which may be easy turned round or 
Tolled is called Voluiih's, hence we have from this the words, 
evolving and revolving. A roller, a thing to smooth the 
ground with, is called in Latin, Volgiohnn. This implement 
of agriculture the Etruscans and Romans brought with them 
is called in German, Waltza, but they derived the name of 
Latin, for the right German name would be- roller. The Ger- 
mans also call a restless person, always wandering, valztn. 
from the Latin. In ancient Etruscia we find the cities ^'ola 
terrae and Volsini. An fltruscian was Consul in Asia, under 
Augustus Caesar, with the name Volesus. A tribe of the 
Etruscians were called Volsci from their quick, swift move- 
ment, leaping from or mounting their horses. Now we will 
come closer to our investigations. Vault is from Latin, and 
x'olutn, volvvm and voluttnn is to roll, to turn or making 
round. Vault, an arched roof or ceiling, is of Etruscian 
origin, because they had the best knowledge of ma-onry. To 
vault by leaping is also from the root ivol)^ all of Latin. The 
dance valtz originally was only known to the peasantry of 
part of Switzerland, and Tirol [jrobably froni Khuelia or ( iriMUi- 
(the Etruscan colony _;. It first became a public dance in I'^lti. 
being adopted at the imperial courts of \'ienna. Johan 
Strauss has the honor of composing the most fa.-^cinating

music for this dance. \\'hen Napoleon I. married Marie 
Louisa, of Austria, it was danced for the lirst time at the courts 
of Paris, France. The empress bringing it along as a token of 
her Tirolean peasantry, and the saving is, that it had a won- 
derful, charming eli'ect when danced for the first time at the 
wedding festival in Paris, in the year ISIO. From there it went 
to London and America, but spreading first in Germany. Xow 
about the Waltz families I found them only in Switzerland, 
Baden and Wirtemberg. though I have traveled all over Ger- 
many, part of Denmark and Holland, but only found the 
name in the above countries, and only where it is toward 
Switzerland (speaking of Germany). Every where I found a 
characteristic tie among the Waltzes. Dark hair, blue eyes, 
high forehead, prominent nose, medium frame of body, a 
good memory, love for reading, for singing, for music, for the 
arts, and good domestic house wives. I found them contented,, 
satisfied when they had some land to till, or a trade, and sel- 
dom striving to be somebody great or famous, but minding 
their own affairs, being sociable and generally witty. There 
is a decree or a propensity of religious feeling among most alL 
leading some to the ministry. But we are all mortal and but 
human. They are of a quick temper, and when attacked in 
their rights, they may be sometimes a little too hasty. The 
writer of this, speaking by experience.
