Philip Sultzbach (variant spellings include Sulzbach, Sulsbaugh, and Sultzbaugh) was born in York County, Pennsylvania, in about 1806. He married Mary Tice, probably in York County.

On 1 July 1832, Philip and Mary Sultzbach were sponsors for the baptism in the Reformed Congregation at Kreutz Creek, Hellam, York County, Pennsylvania of Philip, son of Henry Sultzbach and Mary Sultzbach, born 9 June 1832.[1]

At the 1840 United States Census, Philip Sulsbaugh and his family were recorded in Heidelberg in York County. The household included one male age 30 to 39 (Philip), two females age 20-29 (Mary and one other), one male age 15 to 19, and four young children (two girls under 5, a boy under 5, and a boy age 5-9). One member of the household, possibly Philip, was employed in agriculture.

As of the 1850 U.S. Census, the family had resettled in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, in Upper Paxton Township, near the borough of Millersburg. The census listed Philip Sultzbach as a laborer, age 44, with real estate valued at $100 or $900 (image unclear). His wife Mary was listed as age 38; according to the census record, she could not read or write. Children were Maria, age 16; Charlotte, age 12; Jacob, age 11; Alexander, age 8; and Mary E., 9 months old. Jacob Sultzbach and his family are listed on the same census sheet; he is probably an older brother or cousin of Philip. Jacob had moved from York County to Upper Paxton Township between 1830 (when he appears in the census records for Heidelberg, York County) and 1840 (when he and his family appear in the census record for Upper Paxton Township). Philip apparently followed Jacob in making the same move.

Philip Sultzbach died in 1855. His estate was probated in Dauphin County in 1856.[2]
