Your grandfather

I don't know if we are related but I am doing a review of my family's history and am trying to track the descendents of another Wentz family. My great grandfather was Herbert L. Wentz, born 6-20-1878 in Meadville, PA. He had one son, Chester L. Wentz, born 2-6-1904 in Meadville, PA and moved to Pittsburgh. After graduating from Pitt in 1926, my grandfather and his wife Dorothy moved to Detroit,MI,then to Bartlett, IL, then back to Detroit and then to Naperville, Illinois.

I am intrigued with your granfather's story. Was he a WWI veteran? Was he a naturalist? I have seen his photo when you google our name and often wonder what made him so famous that he is still near the top photo over 60 years after he died.

Thank you for reading this and please respond if you see this.

Hi David,

While I'm unrelated to the Wentz's, the gentleman in the picture was indeed in WW1. He was in the 320th regi, 80th division Company H out of Pennsylvania. He is buried in my town and his homestead is a 30 minute hike. Beautiful tract of land, the park service got off of him.
