Property tax, Northampton town, 1772, for th land lives on
Oath of Allegiance, 1778, Morthampton Co
Federal tax, Nothampton town, 1785

Conrad died intestate, owning no propety and leaving no will. the only authority I have that Conrad is the father of George Henry Hartzell of dearfield, Portage Co, Ohio is the memorial for George Henry's grandson Henry Hertzell written by his nephew Josiah hartzell and printed in the Alliance Daily Review, 12 August 1895.

Still puzzling why Conrad had two sons named Geogre, but perhaps that is why George Henry always used both names.
