    Michael Reitz, the other son of George Reitz (the pioneer in
    Northumberland county of this name) mentioned, was born in January,
    1757, and owned a place of 125 acres in Washington township (where
    Luther Rebuck now lives) where he died Dec. 17, 1825. His wife, whose
    maiden name was Elizabeth Schnock, was a native of Berks county, Pa.,
    born about 1766, and made the trip to Northumberland county on
    horseback. She died Dec. 18, 1853, and she and her husband are buried
    at Himmel's Church, of which they were pioneer members, belonging to the
    Lutheran congregation. All the family were active in the official work
    of this church, in which Michael Reitz held all the offices, and in
    1818, when the old stone church was erected, he acted as building
    master. He was an all-around useful and prominent member of his
    community, and respected accordingly. His children were: Michael lived
    in Jackson (now Washington) township; George settled at Red Bank, Pa.;
    John settled at Red Bank, Pa.; Jonas lived in Washington township (where
    William Rebuck now lives); William settled at Red Bank, Pa.; Peter lived
    at Richfield, Pa.; Daniel is mentioned later; Bevvy married Johan Georg
    Reed; Christina married Michael Hetrich.
