Hartzel Family

The Hartzel Family came from the Rheinland-Palatinate or Baden-Wurttenberg region of Germany.  Hans George Hartzel likely came to America in the early 1730s, and settled in the Lower Saucon area of Bucks County, near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  Hans and his wife Catherine Schmetzer married and lived out their lives in the same area, which would become Northampton County, when it was created from part of Bucks.  They would have 10 children, many of whom stayed in the Lower Saucon area.  The eldest child, Eva Anna Christina, married Matthias Koenig and moved to Westmoreland County in the western part of the state.
