This is a re-post of an original post #425, January 12, 2001.There were several follow-ups to it in the suceeding year or two.Since it has been more than ten years since originally posted, it is possible that a "new generation" of Hartsell genealogists may be interested in the information:
If you're relatively new to Hartsell family research, you may want to know about some available materials:
"Pennsylvania German Pioneers," Pennsylvania German Society, Norristown, PA, 1934.
"History of the Hartsell Family," hand-written text by Luther Thompson Hartsell, later in possessiion of his nephew, John Sharpe Hartsell, 42 Spring Street, N.W., Concord, NC.
"A Book of Life," George Turner Hartzell, 47 Lincoln Way East, Fayetteville, PA 17222, 1977.
"The Adam H. Hartsell Family," Robert L. Hartsell, Ph.D., 1985, type-script book consisting primarily of biographical sheets of Adam H. Hartsell and his 268 descendants at the time, each sheet showing connection to Hartsell parent and listing children--if any, lodged in the LDS Library, Salt Lake City, UT.
"A Hartsell-Hizel History & Genealogy of Four Hundred Twelve Years," Eunice Hartsell Sechler, Charlotte, NC, 1996.
This list is neither comprehensive nor exhaustive, but it may be helpful to someone. I had no such list available when I started my search for cousins!
