I can't find Abraham's father in Pennsylvania. Any idea why sometimes spelling is Bechtel?

You'll not find much on this fellow. Married in PA, lived in OH, died in MO. His father was said to have died after falling from an apple tree. However, his wife's lineage is well documented. Good luck. If you find out who his parents and siblings were, you'll be the hero! Likewise, he happens to be my G-G-Grandfather (Abraham-->Aaron-->Harry-->Beth-->myself).

I do apologize as I am new to ancestry. I just retired from the Kansas City Chiefs NFL after 37 years and have nothing to do now. I have dabbled in this for several years, but I am such a novice. I now use FTM 2012 and got a lot of info from my uncle Orville who lived in Brookfield, MO.(Abraham-John-Lon-Orville). I read your account of Abraham and was very impressed to you knowledge. I only wish I had done more while people were alive to ask them questions. I have you as (Randle Leland Smith-Beth Harriett Bachtel-Harry Clyde Bachtel-Aaron Bachtel). Is this correct? I saw in my email there was a reply to a post and I got excited, but didn't know where to get it since I fell upon your post clearly by mistake. Are you still doing ancestry? I sure would like some guidance if you had some time. How do people exchange information. I could give you access to my tree on line or maybe you already have access. I am so cheap that I go to the library in town to use their access to ancestry library edition so I don't have to pay the monthly subscription. We are cousins, I guess. Have you been doing this long? I would rather talk on the phone since I can't type for shit.
If you have time I have free long distance on my phone and would love to chat with you, if you would have time.
How do I give you my email since everyone in the world including Russia can see this?
Thank you again for answering. This is the first time I have done this. One BIG question is-has Bachtel always been Bachtel or did it originate from Germany as Bechtel and get Americanized? Any info would really be helpful. Again thank you for answering. Ron Bachtel

From Ron Bachtel again

Couple of questions: Orville told me that all the boys (John, Aaron and Abram) had O. for middle initial. If so did it stand for Overholt? Also, there is a bible somewhere that lists all the names with dates. Orville gave me a copy. It's written in High level German. I had it translated few years back. Heard anything about this? Did girls have middle initials?
Thanks,
Ron
