HARTWICK, Christian J. I am looking for any information on the Hartwick family. Christian J. Hartwick b. 11 sep 1812 m. Sarah Tryphena Beecher on 15 Oct. 1846 in Castleton, NY. They soon moved to California. Christian had one child before marrying Sarah: Elizabeth A. Hartwick born in 1839. I have found another Christian John Hartwick who was granted a Patent for land in Otsego County on Apr. 22, 1761. The town of Hartwick was created in this patent. I have also found his name listed as John Christopher and Christopher John. I believe this person could be Christian J. Hartwick's grandfather. If anyone has any information on either of these people please e-mail me at candy@htonline.com.
