Hans Georg Hertel was born 10 March 1722 in Schweigern, Baden, Germany to Hans Sebastian Hertel (1688-1756) and Anna Maria Dietrich (1679-1761) and died 13 September 1776 Leitersburg, Washington County, Maryland, United States of America of unspecified causes. He married Anna Margaretha Gramlich (c1722-c1791) 13 July 1746 in Adelsheim, Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis, Baden, Germany.

Arrived in Philadelphia on September 19, 1749 on the ship Patience captained by Hugh Steele. On September 13, 1760 he purchased 52 acres in Frederick County, Maryland from Michael Leatherman for 16 pounds. On February 19, 1761 he obtained a warrant for 50 acres near the land purchased in 1760 and was called Hartel's Lott. In 1768 he was constable of Upper Antietam Hundred. On June 7, 1770 he was granted 9 1/2 acres called "Little Timber". He is recorded as having supplied a blanket worth 18 shillings in the Revolutionary War.

In his will none of the children's nor his wife's names are given, but he appointed his two eldest sons to be executors of his estate. In the settlement of the estate all of the surviving children are listed: Martin, Frederick, Michael, Bastian, Eave and Peggy. His estate was valued at 422 pounds, 13 shillings, 6 1/2 pence, one third of which went to his widow (£140..17..10 3/4) leaving 281 pounds, 15 shillings, 7 3/4 pence to be divided among the children. I do not believe this included the land. The inventory of appraisement of his estate consisted of the following:

"Eight horses, 11 cattle, 11 hogs, 14 sheep, 1 iron harrow, 1 mill for cleaning grain, 1 old wagon, 1 grindstone, 2 mattocks, 1 sprouting hoe, 1 garden hoe, 2 weeding hoes, 1 broad-ax, 1 spade, 2 shovels, 1 brass scythe, 2 axes, 4 forks, 1 branding iron, 'plow irons'; 1 weaver's loom and stays, 1 iron stove, 1 clock, 'pewter basins, dishes and plates,' pewter spoons, 1 brass ladle, 1 iron kettle, 'iron spoons, ladles, and water buckets,' '1 large Bible,' 'books of different sorts.'"
