Notes for Jacob Kortz:
According to the Abbott Township records of the census of April 1860, Jacob's father was born in Bavaria, Germany.

Jacob Kortz arrived in America about 1838 in order to escape conscription in the German army. Two years later, Katherine Pflugfelder arrived with her family in America. They were old friends in the old country.

Jacob was an expert wood finisher by trade, and the fine dust of his occupation finally affected his lungs. He was advised to seek a new home "among the pines", but we do not know how he happened to select Germania, PA to begin his new life. They arrived in Germania on April 7, 1860, on the birthday of their oldest daughter, who was seven years old. The neighbors in Troy were sure that they would return after suffering the hardships of the forest, but it was Grandma Kortz's pride and determination that prevented their return to easier living.

They built a new house of native pine situated on the high hill about two miles from Germania. Jacob, at the age of 40, was drafted into the 99th Regiment, Company D, Pennsylvania Infantry, on Feb 21, 1865. He was mustered out on July 1, 1865.

As a result of being in the Civil War and tramping the swamps of Virginia, Jacob developed rheumatism which caused blindness. He had fought in place of Mr Bodler, the Germania shoemaker, and joined the Bucktail Division. After his eyesight failed, he was cautious and fed his cattle by hand instead of using a pitchfork, for fear of injuring them. He always carried a gun and an axe for protection from wild animals when he collected the cows. Once he did encounter a bear and two cubs: when the bear attacked him, he could not scare the bear with the axe, so he yelled loudly until the animals fled in one direction while he ran in the opposite direction, much faster than the bears did.

Jacob had two nephews living in America which hoped to visit Germania, but to the great sorrow of the family, one was killed in the war.

There are Pflugfelders living in Renovo, PA, which are thought to be half-brothers of Katherine. In Troy, there are cousins residing, namely Charles Mebs and Charles Teschon, who were coppersmiths by trade. They were considered wealthy and visited the Kortz family once a year and kindly brought scarce articles such as grain, flower seeds, and yarn.

A John Frederick Pflugfelder (father of Katherine?) was naturalized as an American citizen on Oct. 3, 1840 (page 531, Philadelphia Naturalization Records. Oath of Allegiance was made in the Quarter Sessions Court).
