     Jesse Schultz was born in October 1809 in Pennsylvania.1 He was the son of Jacob Schultz and Magdalena Gerhard. Jesse Schultz was also listed as being born, incorrectly, circa 1811-1812 in Pennsylvania.2 In 1860, Jesse Schultz had his name recorded as Jesse Shultz.3 He married Catherine Godshalk, daughter of Herman Godshalk and Mary Clemens Stauffer, on 4 October 1840 probably in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The ceremony was conducted by the Rev. George C. Wack.4 Jesse Schultz and Catherine Godshalk were also reported to have married on 4 September 1841. This date is, however, incorrect. They had been married 11 months previously.5 Jesse Schultz was a shoemaker in 1850.6 He resided in Norriton Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1850.7 Jesse was listed as a member of a church in St. Vincent Reformed Church, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, after 1853. He was recorded as having received communion every time the Lord's Supper was celebrated from November 1856 to March 23, 1862. He died shortly thereafter. He was recorded as being a member "from organization," the church being founded in 1848, but becoming a Reformed congregation in 1853, and no records exist before then.8,9 Jesse was listed as a member of a church in Wentz's Church, Worcester Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1856. He paid two dollars in contribution toward the pastor's salary and support in that year, and that is the only record of any contribution. There was no further support recorded.10 He was elected an elder by the church convocation of St. Vincent German Reformed Church, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, on Easter Monday, 5 April 1858. Abraham Taney was elected with him, and they were both re-elected elders on Sunday 6 April 1861. His second term had a month remaining at the time of his death.11,12 He donated five dollars and hauled all the shingles in the construction of the church sheds.13 He was a farmer in 1860 in East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.14 He died in March 1863 at age 53 years and 5 months.15 He was buried in St. Vincent Reformed Cemetery, Lot 53, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.15 An administration bond on the estate of Jesse Schultz was issued on 26 March 1863 to Joel B. Good and Catherine Godshalk as his administrators.16 An inventory of the estate was filed on 17 April 1863 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Isaac Rosen and Samuel Mower became the appraisers of the estate on 26 March 1863 and they appraised the estate, valuing it at $1,207.44.17
