On August 5, 2000 the Martz family held their family reunion at the Forrest Ridge Campgrounds in Larwill, Indiana. Many descendants of the original Martz family were there. Here is the start of the Martz family:
Johannes H. Martz b: January 08, 1787 in Pennsylvania d: September 1866 in Trumball Co., OH
. +Elizabeth Beaver b: November 19, 1788 d: 1840 in Trumball Co., OH Father: Dewalt Beaver Mother: Elizabeth
........ 2 Johannes H. Jr. Martz b: August 26, 1815 in Pennsylvania d: September 27, 1899 in Roanoke, IN
............ +Margaretha Keller b: February 12, 1818 in Fairfield Twp., Columbia County, Ohio d: February 03, 1890 in Roanoke, IN Father: Johannes Keller Mother: Katharina Kenreich
They have multiplied over the years and now live in many states and counties. At the reunion Pat Williams told us that she has gone back two more generations and she will get with me soon on the names and dates of these two generations, also that she is planning on going to Pennsylvania to do more research and hopes to report more information on this family.
Here are some pictures from the reunion

This is not all the Martzs that were at the reunion some had escaped before the picture was taken.
Im sure that Johannes H. Martz and Elizabeth Beaver Martz were smiling down on the family.The day was beautiful and so was the setting of the reunion. Bet they never thought that there would be so many descendents.
Thanks and appreciation goes to John Wesley Martz (3rd Great Grandson of Johannes and Elizabeth) who put the 2000 reunion together.
The next family reunion will be held in August 2003 at Forrest Ridge Campgrounds in Larwill, Indiana. If you need further information please contact.
