David Bachtel was an early settler in Stark County ohio. Born in Hagerstown Md. Think that his father was probably Martin Bachtel who settled in Reading Pa. before moving to Hagerstown. Would like any informatiom concerning David's father and mother. Thanks.About all I know from hearsay is that originally two brothers Martin and John arrived in this country from the canton of Zurich Switzerland and that it is said that Martin fought with Washington at Valley Forge and settled in Reading Pa. and then to Hagerstown. He may very well have my great great great grandfather. I will be asking researchers in Reading to work on this but appreciate any help from a Bachtel! Please E mail if you can help. Thanks again.
