About Fredrick Rhinehart Woltz

Frederick Rhinehart WOLTZ immigrated to America in 1731, and according to Rupp's Thirty Thousand Immigrants - (Vol 17, 2nd Ser. Penn Arc.) he was the first man by that name to come to America. His coming was because of his violent opposition to the constant increasing encroachment on the civil and religious rights of his people. On his arrival in New York City, he was involuntarily apprenticed for eighteen months to pay for his passage across the Atlantic. Subsequently he then settled in Pennsylvania where no doubt the topography of the country had a great deal of influence, since it was similar to that of the homeland. There too, he could have political freedom and the priviledge of worshipping God according to the dictates of his own conscience. However, we soon find him among the settlers of northern Maryland where he settled and died in 1782.
