Carl and Jacob Schantz appear on a 1749 passenger list for the Lydia, Capt. John Randolph, from Rotterdam to Philadelphia in October 1749. Carl signed the passenger list with a “+”, the same way signed the Articles of Agreement to go to Monckton in 1766. He married Anna Margaretha Lindtz in Philadelphia's St. Michael's Lutheran Church on December 6, 1752. The marriage was witnessed by her brother Michael Lintz and her brother-in-law, Christoph Weber. In 1765 he was a resident of Roxborough, Pennsylvania along with fellow settlers Matthias Sommer, Michael Lutz and Heinrich Stief.
The Schantz family were among the original group of German families in Philadephia contracted by John Hughes of Benjamin Franklin & Co. to settle Monckton Township on the Petitcodiac River. Their ship, the single-masted sloop “Lovey” under Captain Nathaniel Shiverick, landed at Hall's Creek in present-day Moncton, New Brunswick on June 3, 1766. Jones received Lot Four of the new township, situated on Mill Creek (now Somers Creek) giving him an energy source for his gristmill. Charles died in Moncton about 1774, and Lot Four was given to his two sons Henry and John.
Charles Jones was long believed to have been of Welsh origin, and his presence as the only non-German of the early Monckton Township settlers was a mystery. The discovery of Pennsylvania baptismal records of his children using his original German name Schantz, witnessed by members of the Stieff and Lutz families who later settled Moncton with him, led to research into his German origins.
Charles was born about 1721. Charles Schantz ... He passed away about 1776.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Johann Carl by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Johann Carl:
