The Hartsoe/Hartsaw/Hartsough family of Ashe and Lincoln Cos., NC are descendants of John Philip Hertzog, also called Philip Hartsoe. Philip was the son of Friedrich Hertzog who immigrated to America, landing at Philadelphia on 11 Sep 1741, along with his family, including Philip, and his sons- in-law Plickard D. Seyler/Siler and Ulrich Weiss/Uldrick White. The Hertzogs lived at Upper Salford, Philadelphia County, PA where Friedrich had a farm and grist mill.Then they moved down the Great Wagon Road to Augusta Co., VA where Friedrich had another mill.After he left PA he advertised his farm and mill at Upper Salford in Sauer's (German language) Newspaper in Germantown, PA.About 1760 all three families, Hertzogs, Seylers, and Weiss all moved to Rocky River in what was then Orange County (after 1784 Chatham Co.).John Philip Hertzog married Hannah -----.He was an activist during the War of the Regulators and was arrested with others and tried at Hillsborough.He was one of the fortunate ones because he was only fined.Others were executed for their part. I am currently working on a paper on the Hertzog/Hartesoes; Weiss/Whites; and Seyler/ Silers.I will send anyone who wants one a copy as an E Mail attachment. All three families lived on or near Rocky River a few miles north of Siler City in Chatham Co., NC.Siler City was named for a later member of the Seyler/Siler family.
