George Henry was born somewhere in Pennsylvania but his parents have not been
firmly established. Some researchers have tied him to Conrad Sr. while Jacob Sr.
would be just as strong a candidate. In either case, there is not much proof
either way. George Henry came from Northampton Co. to Deerfield Tsp., Portage
Co. OH in 1807.
Abraham Hartsell is the ancestor of a large group of Hartsell's in Tennesee.
It is believed he came from Pennsylvania but his exact ancestry is not known. In
the diary of his son, Jacob Hartsell refers to himself as Jacob Jr. leading to
the idea Abraham's real name was actually Jacob. Almost all of the descendents
spell the name with an "S".
Not much is known about the Mathias that came to America on the Betsy in

Sarah Hartzell Manuscript
This manuscript is an invaluable resource on the line of Hans Leonard
Hartzell, son of Hans Heinrich. Refered to in the Charles Price book, this
manuscript has never been published. Although the Price book says a copy was
placed in the Northampton Co. Hist. Soc., none was ever sent. Started by Sarah
Hartzell, the work was later expanded by her niece. The notes are currently in
the hands of Jean Theobald of Golden Co.
