Surnames: Martz of Rockingham Co.
I've done a fair amount of searching for Martz material from Rockingham Co. I've got the results in a pdf file that I would be happy to forward to you. You can contact me at jwlothamer@aol.com.
The one thing I am curious about is the statement by some that the Martz's were really French and that the name originally was Marche or Marché; being changed ca. late 1700's by English folks who found it easier to say "Martz". I just wonder if it wasn't the other way around., with the English folks hearing "Martz" as "Marche." Does anyone know anything about this. Thanks Jim Lothamer
