About Maria Margaretha Hottel

Johannes Hodel married second on June 23, 1728 to Maria Margaretha "Margaret", widow of Caspar Rheinwald, and daughter of Johannes Steph. She had one son from her first marriage: Johann Heinrich Rheinwald.

John & Margaret Hottel had one son, Johannes, shortly before they emigrated to America. The family then consisted of Johannes, 51, his wife Margaret, 30, his children: Barbara, 19, Charles, 14, George, 10, baby John, 1, and Margaret's son from her first marriage: Henry, 7. They probably traveled by boat down the Rhine River to Rotterdam. There they boarded the ship "Pennsylvania Merchant," probably in June 1732. They landed in Colonial America at Port Philadelphia on September 11, 1732, the year George Washington, father of our country, was born. The spelling of the family name was changed when they came to America simply because they sailed on a ship of English registry, where the clerk responsible for listing the passengers spoke no German. He wrote what he thought he heard these German passengers saying, and so Johannes Hodel became John Hottel. They settled for a while in the northern part of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, then followed the trail of many others down into the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, not later than 1745. They were active members of the Reformed or Lutheran faith.
