George Henry Hartzell 1739 - 1813
Christina Nowlan 1747 - 1823

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
Hannah Anthony

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".

Mathias Hartzell

Not much is known about the Mathias that came to America on the Betsy in 1739.
