Re: Baltzell, Bolser, Balser - Hamilton County, Ohio

In Reply to: Baltzell, Bolser, Balser - Hamilton County, Ohio by Patricia Raether of 117

Felty Bolser (Balser) was born in Hamilton Co, Ohio son of George Balser (b 1765) who was son of Henry Bitzell (1735-1821) and Mary Margaretha Alexander (m 11/2/1762). He was son of Hans Peter Balssel (1704-1778) and Anne Marie Dorn - his second wife (m 5/12/44) Hans Peter was son of Benedict Baltzell who died in 1714. Hans Peter sailed to this country from Alsace in 1750 on the ship St Andrew and landed in Philadelphia. Peter's brother John Jacob prededed him to this country and I am in that line of the family.

NB Great trouble was caused then (and now) about the Baltzell name, but it seems all variations are due to trying to spell what the brothers could only pronounce.

Felty Balser had 14 children: George, Susan, Alexander, Katie, John, Samuel, Sarah, Benjamin, Mary /second wife: Anderson, Mary Caroline, Lafayette, Alonzo
