The oval portrait is of Amos and Elizabeth Schultz, descendants of George Schultz, a member of the religious sect. the Schwenkfelders. In the mid-1700's the Schwenkfelders, who purchased land from Thomas and John Penn, sons of William Penn, referred to the areas as Goschenhoppen. The Schwenkfelders had left Saxony (an area now part of Germany), escaping religious persecution.
