Hi Timothy, I'm Betty Rose Hartz Everett of Buffalo,NY. My father was James A. Hartz and my grandfather was John Hartz who was your grandfather Richard's brother. I spoke once with your Dad a few years ago but can't find his phone number now. I've been doing research on my mother's family and I'm planning to start on my father's family soon. If you have any information to share or if I can be of any help to you please get in touch either by e-mail or my phone number is (716) 633-5977. My grandfather's death certificate said was that he was born in Titusville,PA and his parents were Augustus Hartz and Margaret Stevens.
