Johan Leonhardt NUTZ/NOTZ is listed on page 59 as an early settler in Codorus Township. He immigrated to Philadelphia in 1738 on the Two Sisters (which incidentally also brought some of my ancestors to America in the same year). He was naturalized on Sept. 24, 1746. His estate was administered in Lancaster Co. in 1758. He does not appear to have lived in York County, just owned land there. He received a warrant for 100 acres in North Codorus Twp. on Feb. 15, 1749, that was surveyed as 343 acres on Nov. 25, 1775, and 337 acres on Mar. 8/9, 1750. He married Maria Eva BARTH on Nov. 16, 1723, and Anna Catharina, dau. of Henrich KEYDEL, on Oct. 26, 1734. He had the following children at Zuzenhausen, Germany: (reference: 18th Century Emigrants from German Speaking Lands to North America/The Northern Kraichgau (1983 Annette K. Burgert).
