Re: WV Hartlebens
It has only been three years since you posted this. So, who knows if you'll see it. I am still trying to connect all the US Hartlebens. There aren't too many of them. I am a Rochester Hartleben :). I have been working hard on the family tree and do believe that the Hartlebens from Rochester moved over from Germany. Now, with that in mind, I don't know if they briefly stayed in West Virginia. But, they were in Rochester by the late 1880s. Have you been able to trace back to Germany?
