The Hartsoe/Hartsaw/Hartsough family of Ashe
and Lincoln Cos., NC are descendants of John
Philip Hertzog, also called Philip Hartsoe.
Philip was the son of Friedrich Hertzog who
immigrated to America, landing at Philadelphia on 11 Sep 1741, along with
his family, including Philip, and his sons-
in-law Plickard D. Seyler/Siler and Ulrich
Weiss/Uldrick White. The Hertzogs lived at
Upper Salford, Philadelphia County, PA where
Friedrich had a farm and grist mill. Then
they moved down the Great Wagon Road to Augusta Co., VA where Friedrich had another
mill. After he left PA he advertised his
farm and mill at Upper Salford in Sauer's
(German language) Newspaper in Germantown,
PA. About 1760 all three families, Hertzogs,
Seylers, and Weiss all moved to Rocky River
in what was then Orange County (after 1784
Chatham Co.). John Philip Hertzog married

I am currently working on a paper on the
Hertzog/Hartesoes; Weiss/Whites; and Seyler/
Silers. I will send anyone who wants one

All three families lived on or near Rocky
River a few miles north of Siler City in
Chatham Co., NC. Siler City was named for
a later member of the Seyler/Siler family.
