Louisa (May) Beltz


Louisa (May) Beltz was born on Dec. 26, 1842 in Bedford County, PA, the daughter of Leonard and Maria "Catherine" (Younkin) May.

She was joined in matrimony with Samuel Beltz ( ? - ? ), also spelled "Belts."

She is believed to have produced a daughter, Sarah Beltz, born in 1862 or 1863.

Sadly, Louisa died young, at the age of 19, on March 6, 1862 (or 1863). Evidence suggests that she may have died in childbirth with Sarah, but this needs to be confirmed.

Samuel's fate is not yet learned.

Daughter Sarah Beltz (1862?- ? ) was born in about 1862 or 1863.
