Note: George was born 1795 in South Carolina, the son of Daniel HARTZOG and Suzanna ZORN. There is some question as to the positive parentage of George. My great grandfather James Washington HARTZOG (This is Virginia Buckalew's account) definitely was the son of a George HARTZOG, and beyond this I have assumed from records, etc. that George, was the son of Daniel, the grandson of George b. 1736, and therefore the great grandson of Barnard HARTZOG, who was the founder of the family in America. The Alabama that we know today was Mississippi Territory in the early 1800's seventeen years later Alabama was formed.
George is the founder of the HARTZOG Family in Barbour County, Alabama. George's first wife, Sarah, married him about 1814. She died in South Carolina. George married the second time to Celia (her last name is unknow). Celia was born 1811 in South Carolina. George and Celia's first child, James, was born in South Carolina, then they must have moved to Georgia.
Excerps from Virginia's Book: George is the founder of the HARTZOG family in Barbour County, Alabama. About 1837, the family moved to Barbour County, and George applied at the landoffice in Sparta, AL for 80 acres of land for which he paid $1.25 an acre. Documented records of two land grants in Alabama dated August 24, 1837 (Nos. 5706 and 5707) are issued to George Hartzog and signed by him. He is believed to have died the latter part of that same year, 1837. Celia hartzog (2nd wife of George) is believed to have lived on for several years. Someone has said that she was recorded in Clayton, AL., to have received a pension after the death of her husband. Tom Hartzog of Memphis, TN said that Celia is found in the Census of 1860. It is not known just where she and Georgie are buried (at this point). Records are not completely clear as to exactly how many children George (1795) had by either wife, but we know of seven.
Evans Hartzog's theory is that George (1797), Daniel Charles (1794), and David (1793 or 94) were brothers and the children of Daniel hartzog (1774) and Susannah Zorn. I believe David (1793 or 94) is the son of John theodore Hartzog.
