===========================================
http://www.pontiusfamilyassociation.org/index.htm
Founded in 1968 as the National Pontius Association
by Joseph Philip Pontius of Keokuk, Iowa.
The Pontius Family Association is dedicated to research, education, and the preservation and publication of family history and genealogy.  We also strive to keep in contact with our German relatives through our international reunions with their Pontius Family Association.
The association has members who spell the surname six different ways: Pontius, Pontious, Punches, Pontzius, Poncy, Pountious.  Though these are the most common there are at least 20 spellings of the surname.  About 70% of the Americans and 100% of the Germans use Pontius.
At this time the Pontius family tree can be traced to 1570 with the birth of Niclas Pontius in the Saarland of German.  The starting point for the Pontius family history in America begins with the arrival in 1738 of the Pontius family consisting of their mother, two sons, Johannes (1717-1792) and Nicholas (1728-1794) and daughter Maria, who married George Christopher Herrold.  A brother Friedrich (1715-1782) remained in Germany and it is with many of his descendents that we meet with during our international reunions.
