Sents / Zentz Family   - [ Back ]

Possible/Probable? Early History - that needs to be verified/corrected/completed

NOTE - I need to update this narative based on new information recieved from Martin Schneider on Jan 19, 2014, who lives in Germany in the town where my ancestors were born and lived - and who knows of and has researched the Zentz family.

My earliest known ancestor is believed to be Jacob ZENTZ (my great-great grandfather), who is believed to have immigrated to the USA in 1838 from Germany with his wife, Elizabeth, five sons and two daughters. My father, John Tyson Sents, told me: "his father's father came from Germany and was one of seven boys(kids?)". A third daughter, Caroline, is believed to have been born at sea enroute to Philadelphia (possibly) in 1838. Their port of entry and immigration date have not been found in any ship passenger records, so not verified yet. I originally believed they arrived here about 1830 - based Joseph ZENTZ's Letter, which says, Casper "Came to USA at age 6" and the fact that Casper was 26 in the 1850 Census. However, 1930 must be incorrect because - Franklin CENSE, was born in Germany in 1835.

Jacob, who was a miner by trade, and his family originally settled in the coal mining area of Pottsville, Pennsylvania. They are listed under 'Jacob Zens' in the 1840 Census for Branch Township in Schuylkill County, PA. Jacon and Elizabeth's two oldest sons, Conrad and Casper (my great grandfather), are believed to have been married there.

By 1850, the family had migrated to the Nippenose Valley area of Pennsylvania to the Limestone Township of Lycoming County according to the 1850 Census - where, Jacob 50 and Elizabeth 48 are listed with four sons: Casper ZENTZ 26, Jacob [Jr] ZINTZ 19, Adam ZINTZ 18 and Franklin ZINTZ 14; and a daughter, Caroline ZINTZ 12. Conrad and his family remained behind in the Pottsville area (Blythe Twp.) according to the 1850 Census, where his name is listed as 'CINCE'.

The 1850 Census also indicates that Casper ZENTZ 26 was married to Mary [A. BLAUS] 25, both born in Germany, having a son, Adam, 1 year old. According to Joseph L. ZENTZ's letter, Mary came from Germany when she was 18 (perhaps Heidelberg or Stuttgart). That would put her arrival date around 1842/43 (she has not yet been found in any ship passenger records). Casper and Mary A. must have been married before settling in Limestone Twp because there is no record of their marriage in the records of the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church that they attended in Bastress, PA - Mary's death and burial are recorded there - Her grave stone says, "Mary A. wife of Casper Sents". See

In the 1860 Census, Jacob 60 and Elizabeth 61(?) both listed Prussia as their place of birth. Interestingly, the surnames are all spelled, CINCE. Their son Casper 37 is listed as a neighbor along with his wife Mary 36, and five children: Charles W. 9, Jacob [J] 7/8, Peter 4/5, Casper [R] 2 and Henry [T] 3 months old. Adam is not listed because he died in June at age 11 from scarlet fever (apparently just before the census was taken). Their son Adam 27 and his wife Angeline 22 and new son Henry J. 8mos. are living in Nippenose Twp. Adam's birthplace is given as Germany along with his occupation as Miner. Their children: Jacob Jr., Franklin and Caroline are missing.

In 1870, Jacob 70 and Elisabeth 70 are still living. Casper has three more sons: Joseph (L) 7, George 5 and John (F) 2 (John Franklin, my grandfather). Casper's brother, Franklin 34 "from Prussia", is now married to Christina 30/35, from PA, and they have a son Edward 1. Interestingly, the surnames now are all spelled, CENSE.

In the 1880 Census, the elder Jacob and Elizabeth are missing (they may have died - and where they are burried is unknown). Casper 57 and Mary 56, now listed as ZINCE, and still living with them are their sons Jacob (J) 28, Henry (T) 20, Joseph (L) 18, George 15 and John (F) 13. Charles W. 29 and Casper R. 20 have apparently left the area. Peter SENTZ 24 is living with a different family in the area, working as a servant farmer (a further reference to him has not been found). Casper's brother Frank[lin] ZINTZ 45 and Crista [Christina] 40 now have two more sons: William 9 and George 3, in addition to Edward, now 11.

In 1889-1892, Casper R. SENTS, Henry T. SENTS, Joseph L. SENTS and Jacob J. SENTS are known to have lived and worked at various times in Williamsport, PA according to the City Directories.

In 1910, .... (more to come)

In 1920, Jacob (J) SENTS 66 (parents from Germany) lived with his wife Mary (E. Leathers)65 in Ralston, PA. .... (more to come)

In Abt 1930, my mother recalls meeting my Dad's "Uncle Casper" (but I think it was his cousin, Casper J.) in downtown Newberry, PA.

In the above senario the surnames, ages and birth places do not all jibe completely between Census years but I believed they are just natural inaccuracies that might be expected of people remembering/relating facts, recording errors that might be expected of a Census taker, and ambiguity in interpreting the hand-written data. There is just too much that does jibe in terms of Names, Places, Ages and in continuity, especially for such a small and remote geographic area, for it to be just a coincidence!

SOURCE: History of SENTS Family
   Information by Harleen Sents Vickers, received on 3/19/2009 from Lowell Spencer Thomas 
   (seadragon5 DB @ RootsWeb).
   She is a descendant of George Washington Sentz/Sents, brother of John F. Sents (my grandfather).
   Most of what she reports correlates with my data, but not all of it. The major discrepancy is
   that she has Adam Sents/Zentz as my great grandfather (her great grandfather) and I believe I
   can prove conclusively that it is Casper Sents/Zentz!
