Notes for John Jacob WETZEL
John (Johan) Jacob Wetzel may have come to America on the ship "The Charming Nancy," October 8, 1737. John Jacob Wetzel may have settled in Hereford Township, then Philadelphia Co., now Berks Co., Virginia. Some researchers believe John Jacob Wetzel was married, first, to Anna Maria Bassler; and, then, to Anna Maria Haag.

John (Johan) Jacob had children, possibly Jacob Wetzel, Conrad Wetzel and Georg Wetzel, along with daughters, Catharine Wetzel and Maria Elizabeth "Marialiss" Wetsel. John Jacob Wetzel and his sons may have all served in the Revolutionary War. It is uncertain whether the above information on John Jacob Wetzel and his family is factual. There were a number of Jacob Wetzels living in the same area, in the 1700's and 1800's, and some confusion in information is possible.
