These 4 siblings emigreated to America from Germany. Elizabeth and Adam prior to 1847. William and Philip in 1852. They all ended up in Van Wert Co. Ohio. Elizabeth married George Michael Wise in Philadelphia, Pa on 3/9/1847. William apprenticed as a shoemaker in Germany, and became a dealer in boots and shoes in Van Wert. Philip married Agatha Lehman in 1857. He was a farmer in Liberty twp. Van Wert County. They had 8 children. Adam became a farmer in Van Wert County also.
If anyone is connected to this line of Hertel's I would appreciate any information. Particulary since my great grandfather Michael George Wise's second wife was a Xema Keltner Hertel. I have been wondering if this wife was related to the the Hertel's I mentioned before? Since the Wise's and Hertels lived in the same area for generations it seemed to me that there may be a connecton.
