John Philip's great-grandfather Hans Georg Hertzel (1686-1755) came from Reihen in the Palatinate in 1727 to Pennsylvania. His father, Johann Hans George Hartzel (called John George, 1749-1824), was a prosperous farmer who served in the Revolutionary War. He had a twin brother who was named John George (Findagrave 44196960).

The Germanic custom of the time was for men to be called by their middle name, not their first given name, so he was known also as Philip Hartzell.

John Philip and his wife Elizabeth had nine children, and lived on his parents' farm. After he died his daughter and six of his sons went to Darke County, Ohio, with his widow Elizabeth, their mother. She remarried.

The dates on this tombstone, December 24, 1771 to August 22, 1823, differ slightly from other records.
