Joseph was the son of Johannes Kuntz and his wife Elsa Schuster. All
four sons of Johannes Kuntz were members of the Steelsmiths and
Toolmakers Guild of Ferndorf, Freudenberg, and the Four Villages.
Joseph's wife, Gertrude, died soon after they came to Virginia, and in 2 CONT 1724 he married Catherine, daughter of John Henry Weaver (1714
immigrant) and his wife, Anna Margaret Huttman. Joseph died in 1731 at
Germantown, and he, his wife, and three of his children are buried

dated October 18, 1730 and probated February 10, 1731, leaves to son
Henry ``my plantation,'' and if he die without issue, it is to go to
my daughter Mary Cowntz; to son Tilamn Cowntz 100 acres bought of
William Russell; daughter Ann Elizabeth (wife of) Tilman Weaver;
daughter Anna Catherine; daughter Mary; daughter Catherine 40 acres
on Licking Run joining Jacob Holtzclaw; Tilman Weaver is appointed
executor, and is to have ``my servant Jeremiah'' and the 4 youngest
children until they come to maturity; test, Jacob Holtzclaw, John
Kemper, Joseph Martin, Peter Hitt.

Fauquier County Deed Book 1, page 323, May 27, 1762, Joseph Hitt and
Mary, his wife, Harman Kemper and Kathering, his wife, and Ann
Elizabeth Weaver (Tilman Weaver was dead at this time) sell 100 acres
which they inherited from Tilman Cowns, deceased. This deed shows
that the descendants of Joseph Cuntz are to be found only through
these three daughters, since the other children had died without
