Can anyone help me out with some details? I'm looking for details on my grandmother's side of the family.
Charles Hartman was born April 1st, 1909, married Agnes Matykunas (my great grandparents). His parents were John and Bertha Hartman. Charles' siblings were Jacob A. Hartman, Minerva (Hartman) Wright, Ferdinand Hartman and Margaret Hartman. Can anyone tell me any details on Jacob, Minerva and Margaret? I only have approximate birth years.
Also, Charles' father John's parents were John and Mary Hartman. Anyone know anything about them? They were born in Germany and came to New York. They had another child, Catherine Hartman.
Thank you for any help!
What I have learned in my 10 years of researching my Hartman line are places/dates are the most important things. Date of birth/death. Did your Hartman's move from New York? Perhaps to PA or another state? My Hartman family born in PA but moved to Ohio and raised their familes there. A few moved to Indiana. I have a Frederick Hartman born in Pa, moved to Ohio and then to Indiana and died there. His brothers were Daniel, Obediah, Nathan,and sister Rachel. I have traced my Hartman's back to 1784. Your best bet is using the Federal Census. Good luck. Alicemackert@msn.com
