    I am curious to know if anyone has had a DNA test, and where exactly in the Holy Roman Empire the Hagenbuch family came from(besides Stuttgart).

      Thanks for the info, Calvin. If you want, I can put you in contact with Kim Sebestyen who is featured in the article and also a descendant of Johann Jacob Wetzel. Good to hear from you and glad you have read our articles.

    Hi Mark, Yes please contact Kim for me and send her my e-mail. I am also a contributor on the Find A Grave site and have done much work on the descendants of Sgt. Philip Wetzel Sr.-2961 (1751-1826), artillery, PA. Continental Line, 13th Regiment. I have been working on connecting this family on Find A Grave. Many are located in New Berlin, Snyder Co. PA.
