We have researched the Valentine Hang family from Gau-Algesheim, Germany to the US. The Hang name was first listed there in 1668. Nicolaus Hang died there in 1673 and his 2nd wife, Maria, died there in 1679. We have several generations of their descendants. One of those descendants, Valentine Hang, b. 1815 in Gau-Algesheim, Germany married Christina Bietsch/Beach in Darmstadt, Germany 1 November 1842. They immigrated to America in 1843 and settled in Blair Co., PA. By 1860 they moved to Stark Co., OH where they both lived until their deaths.
