There are TWO Johann Jacob Kintzers who came to the US in 1737. This Johann Jacob sailed on the ship "Samuel" and was born 25 January 1709 in Wolfersweiler, Saarland, Germany. He son of Johann Bernard Küntzer and Anna Catharina Seibert. Source:"On the Far Side of the Sea" by Charles Wayne Garman
Johann came to America on the "Samuel" from Rotterdam. He arrived in Pennsylvania on August 30, 1737. Johann was 28 years old at the time. The Captain of the Samuel was Hugh Percy. (The spelling of Kuntzer was changed to Kinser by Captain Percy on his ship's mani-fest.) The passenger list said "Jacob Kuntz". Johann Jacob supposedly migrated with his father Hans Bernard, but his father isn't on the passenger list. Johann Jacob and Anna moved to Montgomery County, Virginia in 1770 or early 1771. He is listed on Walter Crockett's list of tithables. On December 14, 1774 Jacob had about 454 acres of land surveyed on Tates Run in Wythe County, Virginia. They lived there until his death in 1775 or early 1776. Jacob died without a will; however, Elizabeth (Jacob's son Michael's wife) and her children sold 100 acres to Curtiss Grubb in 1832.
