My name is Jason William Hartle I believe we are related as my ancestors are also from the Minden Ontario area! I have only just started my research.My aunt has a Hartle family bible and I'm waiting for her to get back to me with confirmation. Here's what I've been told by my grandmother.
John Hartle (from germany to the minden area)
William Hartle was John's son Bert(Albert?)Hartle was John's son Daughter unknown name (no information as yet)
Jack Hartle was Bert's son (died in plane crash, possibly a navy pilot)
Donald William Hartle was William's son (my Grandfather) Kathleen(Kay) Hartle was William's daughter(looking into offspring) Evelyn(Alice) Hartle was William's daughter(looking into offspring)
Colleen Hartle is Donald's daughter Wayne William Hartle is Donald's son (my Father)
Jason William Hartle is Wayne's son Matthew Hartle is Wayne's son Julie Hartle is Wayne's daughter
Jack William Hartle is Jason's son
My Grandmother has told me that the original John Hartle and his two son's William and Bert owned a general store and a gas station in Minden.Because of family bickering John built an apartment over the store and Bert's family moved there.Apparently at John's death William and Bert had a falling out and the two Hartle families parted ways.To this day I have never met any of the Hartle's associated with Bert's side of the family.
