The following is from Find-A-Grave: Drowned Jan.1, 1767 along with George Heckman in Easton on the Lehigh River. Hans (John) George HERTZEL Jr. was born on 7 Jul 1714 in Reihen, Baden, Germany. He died on 1 Jan 1767 in Pennsylvania. Alternate death date of 21 Jan 1762, Easton, Northampton, Pa on CD Ancestral File Feb 94. This date is also given in "Kansas Pioneers". He was buried in Lower Saucon Reformed Church Cemetery, Easton Road, Hellertown, Pa. Bought 200 acres adjoining his fathers farm on Applebutter Road. Other relatives settled adjoining tracts. Emigrated from Germany by way of Rotterdam on the ship "William and Sarah", landing in Philadelphia Sept 21, 1727. Received a warrant for 200 acres of land adjoining that of his father in Lower Saucon Township, then Bucks Co, now Northampton Co dated Sept 20, 1737. In 1747 the congregation was meeting at "Herzel's", presumably at the dwelling of George. In 1756 when the Lower Saucon Reformed Church books were opened, he entered the names and births of all his children. He wrote his will in German on Feb 21, 1757. Jan 1, 1767 he and Geoge Heckman were drowned at Easton, probably as they attempted to cross the Lehigh River. The family continued to live on the farm for about six years until the youngest child married. Feb 1, 1769, son-in-law Jacob Gross agreed to take over the plantation for 400 pounds. They had a sale at which John, the oldest son, bought most of the farm equipment and some animals, other sons-in-law purchased items, the total coming to 638 pounds, 7 shillings, 4 pence for the personal property of the estate. "Took the sacrament in 1740, and became a citizen". Parents: Hans (John) Georg HIRTZEL Sr. and Anna Margretha CONRAD. He was married to Catharine SCHMETZER about 1735/36 in Lehigh, Pa.
