Hartman was my 4th Great-Grandfather.

He was the son of Nicholas (Nicolaus) Morrett and Magdalena EUB.

His wife was Gertraut Klein who he married on April 30th, 1782 at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster Co., PA. Their children together were:

Catherine Morrett Diller (1783-1852)
John, Sr.
Jacob
Michael
Elizabeth
Susanna Morrett Kissinger (1795-1847)

Hartman served as a Private (8th Class) in the Lancaster County Militia during the Revolutionary War.

Old Churchtown Cemetery near Allen (formerly known as Churchtown). All tombstones have been removed from this cemetery and a single memorial monument has been erected which has the following inscription, "IN MEMORY OF THE DEAD INTERRED HERE, 1ST BODY BURRIED 1788, LAST BODY BURRIED 1870". Locally the town is known as Churchtown, and is about seven miles from Carlisle. About 1910, the graveyard, with stones broken and in deplorable condition, was cleared and made into a grassy plot with one large stone, but no names. Before gravestones were buried, the family of a descendant made a list of all inscriptions. It is from this, that the copy given here has been made. "DAR Patriot Index, National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, 1966, page 480." Hartman Morrett, b. 8 Nov 1734, d. 13 Nov 1822, m. Gertrude, Pvt PA.
