BATTLE NOW ON
FOR WERTZ MONEY
Heirs Get Together at New
Harper and Outline Plans
for Legal Fight.
AT HOLLAND GOVERNMENT
Letters Read Bearing Up Claim to
Huge Fortune Thought to lie
Awaiting in Kurope.
The fight for the Wertz millions
started today. Wertz warriors are
pouring into this city from all parts
of the country, and this afternoon un
der the leadership of Mrs. Estelle Sny
der, are beginning the battle to recov
er the vast fortune which they are con
fident awaits them. Mrs. Snyder has
traced the American branch back to
the Black forest, Germany, and now
money must he raised to look tip the
German antecedents. A big fund is to
be raised to pursue the search for the
original will of General Wertz and in
looking up the old German records,
which are complete back to the year
1 1 ii"m).
1. 1 Mil OBr.t('l,K.
The chief obstacle, a law passed in
the Netherlands in 1S52, that ail es-
that claim to the estate was made by
the heirs previous to that year. The
letter is from Miss .T;ilia Ahistrom of
Augusta. Ga.. and reads in part aa fol
lows: "We are direcr descendants of
; years ago. These Wertzes l.i.l claim
j to the Wertz estate in Amsterdam,
i Holland long previous to r.2. The
Holland government at that time ad
mitted the justice of the claim. I read
a cablegram from Ixmuon last Janu
ary, stating that a familv of Wertzes
' jn Birmingham, Eng., laid claim to this
isame estate and expected to be able to
prove the claims

niMiKitv a ror.i.
This letter was read at a meeting
last night. At midnight the men held
! an informal meeting and decided to

i ed the cate and is only after the coin,
i A copy of those resolutions will be
I mailed to the president and other
I men high up with whom complaint will

The great majority of the big men,

eH tlii mnmirp" nnrt it rt vnieir.ir their
opinions this afternoon. A delegation
of l heirs from Aledo armed this

who is taking as her subject, "The

ment is a question which I cannot an-
6wer. but I do claim that this family
conclave will bear fruit.
WERTZ 9 PROMINENT.
"In all my. search for the Wertz de
scendants I have not found a single
one who was a discredit to the name.
I have found them In every walk and
vocation of life. One of them held the
governorship of the state of New Jer-il
sey until his death, George Wertz of
Johnstow n, Pa., one is the senator o" ,
his state, one a doctor of law at Yale i
university, there are bank presidents, i
judges, commissioners, justices of the !
peace, postmasters, one of them held :
the position of assistant minister of,
the interior under McKinley, there is !
one in the treasury department at j
Washington, one in the mint, and we
have lots of states attorneys.
INCITED BY" KKENCH.
"The day 1 came to begin this search '
for the American heirs was this. After !
reading in the Chicago Examiner a ca-j
blegram from Paris, stating that the j
French descendants of the Wertz fam- j
ily were going to make an effort to I
recover their legacy, I discussed the i
matter .with my mother. She told me!
that there had been a tradition handed j
down from generation to generation j
that the estate was in the hands of the '
Holland government and that Holland j
would never relinquish it but would I
law ' the heirs to death as they did not j
have the available funds to right the j
government. My mother said; lf the
French heirs arc getting together to
recover the property, why cannot we
American heirs do likewise?'
KKITI IS STARTED.
"She told me to go ahead and try to
trace the branches, of the family and
to recover the family bible. I g3ve
the matter all the newspaper public
ity possible immediately as an aid lo
getting the heirs together. Immediate
ly letters began to pour in from all
over the country. I got a letter from a
man, who is a distant cousin of John
Wertz. of Johnstown. Pa., the father
of Senator George Wertz of that slate,
saying that he had a blueprint givjng
the genealogy of the family, dating
from the time that, the first Wertz
came to this country. The blue print
was nearly obliterated by age, but I
had It deciphered hy an expert, with
the aid of a powerful glass, and with
this blue print, I had the complete
genealogy of the Wertz family from
the time Jacob Wertz landed in Phil
adelphia in 1732 in company with his
three sons. George, Conrad and Jacob.
OT nASII.Y niSCOlUAGED.
"I consulted a very able lawyer in
Chicago who stated that in his opinion.
I could not recover this estate and to I
iigct tno case would require a very
large sum of money. Indisputable proof
of heirship, patience and time. I re-
j ceived another letter bringing out the
fact that General Wertz had owned
practically7 half cf New Amsterdam or
what Is now the heart of the business
section of New York and another let
ter containing the information that
General Wertz made a will as regards
his European estate in which it was
stipulated that the estate should be al
lowed to accumulate and not be dis
tributed until after five generations.
That claim was made 20 years ago and
Holland agreed to settle when
I'nited Slates settled the New York es
!'(HTS IX ClONKAIOCiV.
'"From the blue print in my posses-
ion as well as other sources, I have
gleaned the following in regard to the
Wertz hii-tory: Jacob Wertz came to
America on the diip Mary of London,
last from Rotterdam, under the com
mand of Captain John Gray. Jacob
Wertz with his three sons, Jacob,
George and Conrad arrived in Phila
delphia Sept. ii, 17:52 and took the
oath of allegiance to the state of Penn
sylvania, settling in Bedford county. I
think without doubt that we can posi
tively complete the American Wertz
genealogy from the time our fore
laiher Jacob Wertz came over to the
present generation, but the connection
of Jacob Wertz of Philadelphia and
General Wertz is another proposition.
Whib- there is no doubt but that thes3
two men were either brothers or at
