CONCLUSION.



^''he relationship of the Pfautz Family in America, who
are the descendants of our ancestor JOHN MICHAEL
PFAUTZ, a native of Switzerland, is now so far fully
described.

There are other Pfautz's in the United States, who are
the descendants of another ancestor, of whom I will now
mention.

In the year 1767, about 50 years after the landing of
our ancestor Jolm Michael f fautz, a man named BARON
VON PFAUTZ, from the vicinity of the Hartz Mountains in
Germany, emigrated to this country, and settled with his
four sons, named Michael, Simion, John and George,
somewhere in Pennsylvania.

Many of*the descendants of this Baron von Pfautz living
in Pfautz's valley, who were the first settlers of that val-
ley, are living at Jersey Shore, Pa.; some in Luzerne
(iounty. Pa.; some in St. Louis, Mo.; some in Dallas,
Texas; some in Philadelphia, Pa.; and some at other
places. They were staunch Patriots during the revolution.
During that time they changed the spelling of their names
from "PFAUTZ" to "PFOUTZ", after that they changed
again from "PFOUTZ" to "PFOUTS", and now they all
write their name "PFOUTS". I conversed with some of
them, and corresponded with many of them. — So much
of the descendants of Baron von Pfautz.

CONCLUSION, 65



In the year 1826, two young men (brothers) from
Europe, landed at New York. They traveled through
Pennsylvania, bound for the west, and stopped at Hum-
melstown, Dauphin County, where I happened to see
them, and had a conversation with them. They said
their name was PFAUTZ, and that they were from Switz-
erland, and that many of the same name are yet living in
Switzerland and the Palatinate. Where they located in
the west, is unknown.

In the year 1858, a young man named GOTTLIEB
PFAUTZ from Germany, landed at Philadelphia, arid in
