      Johann Georg Hutzel - Anna Maria Magdalena Schweinhardt

      Johann was born in Pfaffenhofen Wurttemberg, Germany, on October 4, 1711.

      He was nine years old when his father Johannes died. On August 29, 1730, Georg and Ludwig Hutzel, his brother, arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from the Palatinate on the ship "Thistle".

      It is possible that the Hutzel brothers left the Palatinate for a more prosperous and peaceful life which was promised by the leaders of "The New World". Wars in the Palatinate had been almost continuous for 100 years and the prospect of freedom must have been more than tempting. Many Germans were immigrating to the Colonies during this era.

      Little is known about Johann Georg during the first nine years of his life in America. It is reasonable to assume that he lived near his brother, Ludwig, in eastern Pennsylvania when they first arrived in the new land. In the year 1736, Johann Georg was a found as sponsor to a baptism at Muddy Creek Lutheran Church of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

      The first record of Johann Georg being in Maryland was found in the records of Rev. John Casper Stoever when George Hutzel of Monocacy, Maryland, married Anna Maria Magdalena Schweinhardt on June 17, 1739. She was born on January 8, 1725, in Pennsylvania.

      Johann George was a farmer and appears to have purchased his first land from his father-in-law George Schweinhardt, on March 14, 1747, for the sum of Sixteen Pounds "current Maryland money". This tract of land called "George and Margarett" was in the vicinity of the present day Yellow Springs, Maryland, which is just a few miles northwest of Frederick on the east side of Cotoctin [Catoctin] Mountain.

      On June 24, 1756, Johann George purchased an additional tract of land called "Markleys Purchase" containing 65 acres adjoining "George and Margarett". He paid one Pound Five Shillings Sterling for this tract and the record shows it to have been uncultivated.

      Johann George Hutzel was certified a naturalized citizen in the American colonies at the October 1743 term of the Provencial [sic] Court of Maryland. The French and Indian War brought about a new challenge to Johann. As a citizen of the colonies he became quartering soldier under Cpt. Elias Delashmuts in 1757.

      Johann Georg and Anna Maria Magdalena Hutzel had twelve children: Margaret, Susanna, George, Johannes, Johann Peter, Johann Matthaus, Ludwig, Jacob, Anna Maria, a daughter, Michael and Gabriel.

      Johann Georg died in Frederick County, Maryland, on May 2, 1778, of a stroke while on his way to see a friend whose surname was Ringer. Magdalena died in Frederick County, Maryland on My 21, 1788, of a stroke. Both were buried in the church yard or "God's Acre" of the Evangelical Lutheran church in Frederick, Maryland.
