Alias: Quickel, Anna Barbara [chids aunt]sponsor for this child [fathers sister]23

Around 1811, Ann Barbara, John Quickels 6th child, born in 1792, had an affair with an English still operator named Martin Duhling. After learning of Ann Barbaras pregnancy, Martin conveniently left town for Ohio, leaving Ann Barbara with an illegitimate boy whom she named Martin Duhling, Jr. This goes far beyond cultural tension, and no doubt would have influenced most German-American fathers opinions of the non-German speaking males of America. 41
If it (Martins illegitimate birth)  affected John (Martins grandfather Quickel) , he hardly let it show, unless it was the very cause of his increasingly elaborate tulip designs. In the Quickel history, David Quickel reports that Ann Barbara was disowned by the family, and indeed her name does not appear in Johns will. But she and Martin, Jr. lived with John until 1831, and of all of the grandchildren it is Martin, Jr. who walks in his grandfathers footsteps in both longevity and assumption of numerous community-oriented roles.Martin Duhling, Jr., a Quickel at heart, teaches school for 32 terms, makes pottery for 20 years, is a Justice of the Peace for 42 years, a Postmaster for 6, and aids in forming the York County Teachers Institute in 1854. For an illegitimate grandson, he certainly wasnt an outlet for any tension that his situation may have created. 41

Georges father is responsable for many of the beautiful graves of Quickels church, and Barry Rauhauser informs, many of the stones still continue through the 1820s just as they always had, at least until 1831 when John Quickel, Esq. passes away. Johns son, George, and another man, Henry Rodes, take up John Quickels chisels for a time, carving similar but simpler designs while still using fraktur lettering. The two mens stones are nearly indistinguishable from Johns, save for the centering of the dates and the absence of the heart and tulip motif. By the mid-1840s (George dies in 1845), nearly all the elements of German design are gone from the stones, including the language, the fraktur and the folk-art motifs. 41

George was a life-long farmer and the son of JOHN QUICKEL, who was born and lived all of his life in the same county in Pennsylvania. A lifelong farmer and the father of 8 children.

76. Email correspondance from Jane, researcher of Bentz line, relying on data from her grandmother and she basing research on John Bentz Hamme. Letter filed under Bentz Family in Reunion Folder. Janes email oliver1250@hotmail.com

This work bases research on notes by John Bentz Hamme in title, found in text under same[born 1862] where  it is said To him we are indebted for this long and interesting family history.
Please note many comments through text indicate this research was done in about 1944 so, as approaches later generations, could indicate contact with then living progeny and relatives of those detailed in the text. In addition the original information shows living status for several entries born as late as the 1870s.
The original work seems to be by John Bentz Hamme in entirity, and the Hamme lines might then be considered most secure

However, No source citations, are provided in source, and I found several minor errors in my direct lines, so Caveat Emptor
