Have you checked the references cited on the DAR and SAR applications? You can purchase reference copies of the DAR applications, and in some cases, the documentation file (for an additional charge).

Does Wetzel also include Wetsel? 

Very interesting. I have a a nuclear family of Joe Lewis Wetsel Jr - WikiTree Profile you might want to look at, granted Pennsylvania is a far distance from Texas ...
