It appears likely that there was more than one Johannes Teetzel in the US.
Johannes Teetsell born in Germany in 1760 died at Saugerties, NY after 1797, married Rosina Fiero and was private in Revolutionary War, serving with the 1st Ulster of NY. Johannes Testil is listed with Wynkoop's from Ulster Co., and may be the same gentleman. (AH-237 & 243) Johannis Teitsel was authorized to buy land in New York in 1789. (P) I might have passed this last information by, except that in the same area was an Isaac Van Tile (Twill, Tuile, Zile) who was involved with the Committee of Safety and a sergeant in the Mamakiting unit during the Revolutionary War. It is most likely that our Johannes Teetzel is the maker of a stone marker in Germany Valley, Union Churchyard, Morris Co, NJ which has "Teetzel" carved on the back. (Note: this area was renamed in WW I, Long Valley. (S-49:99:101)) This would match other statements in the family concerning residence in New Jersey.

I have been contacted by several people who are interested in him because
of the tombstones he made. Each of them states the the ones he made are
legible long after all the others in the cemetery have worn away.
Here are 3 photos by Paul Hutchinson, St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada.
He has kindly given permission for me to post these here.
The distinguish .T. is on the front of the Canadian tombstones
he has found so far.

If you are in possession of photos of other tombstones made by John Solomon Teetzel,
please be so kind as to contact him at
to see if he would like copies of your photos. He is also interested
in other unique or unusual early monuments in Niagra cemeteries.

Most of the following information is taken from a statement by John Teetzel, transcribed from a document in the possession of Hiram Teetzel of St Joseph, Michigan, by Manson D. Teetzel on July 6, 1887, or from a letter written by John S. Teetzel's great grandson, James Vernal Teetzel in 1916. The source is shown for information not taken from those two documents. Copies of those two documents are in the author's possession. Born: Feb. 27, 1762 in Coburg, Upper Saxony, Germany Died: Dec. 4, 1836 (both on TS-Palermo) Married first on Nov. 5, 1786 in New Jersey, Rachel von Sill (sometimes shown von Till or van Till). I have only located possible leads for her family. I have found no public record of their marriage. The following are the leads for her family. Jacobus Van Syle/Sile in Hackensack, Bergen County, New Jersey 1773, 1778 and 1780. (W & Y) Abraham Vn Sile in Hanover, Morris County, New Jersey 1778 and 1780. (W) Evert Van Sile/Syle in Bergen County, New Jersey 1778 and 1780. Children: Charles Frederick Teetzel (Sept. 10, 1787, Sussex, NJ-Oct. 19,1856)(TS-Palermo) in 1809 married Mary Tufford (1787, NJ- March 26, 1856, age 67 yrs, 7 mn, 22 days) who had come to Canada about 1800 with her parents. Per the Halton Region Museum (via Mary Webb) he was the oldest of 19 children of above John and Rachel Von Till. She died of consumption. Charles' obituary states that he moved to Trafalgar (township in which Palermo lies) in about 1810, and was moved from his residence in Palermo to Milton for medical care prior to his death, less than 6 months after his wife died. (See separate entry Charles Frederick Teetzel.) Susanna Teetzel (Aug 5, 1789, Sussex, NJ-Dec. 29, 1858) married Feb. 17, 1808 Lawrence "Low" Hager (1784-1870), a Methodist preacher and farmer in Palermo. In 1871 directory there is an Addison Hager listed in Palermo. They are buried at Palermo United Cemetery, Halton, Trafalga Twp. ^I. Charles Hager (oldest) named town of Hagerville. ^?. Lawrence Hager: I presume the Laurence Hager, Sr. who died Jan. 6, 1894 at the age of 81 years, 5 months, and 4 days at his residence in Palermo, Ontario, Canada and whose funeral card was among those kept by members of our family is also their son. Elizabeth "Betsy" Teetzel (June 13, 1791, NJ-Sept. 1, 1864) married Dec. 29, 1808 Matthias Book (1785-1838). In the 1871 directory for Palermo, there is an Absolom Book, farmer. ^I. William Book (died prior to 1916), Grimsby Julia A. Teetzel (1793, Sussex Co, NJ-Feb. 2, 1864) married Oct. 31, 1815 Jacob Street. Family oral tradition says she traveled through the wilderness with only an axe for protection to file the crown deed. (see Street link below) Jonathan Johnson Teetzel (Aug. 22, 1795, NJ-Jan 17, 1873, Southwold) married Jan. 1, 1817, in Grimsby, Mary Lawrence (Nov. 22, 1797, Grimsby-Aug. 23, 1855, Southwold). (See separate entry below) John Teetzel (Sept. 1, 1797) married July 6, 1820 Hannah Havens.

They sold parcel of land in Orford, along Talbot Road, to John H. Eberle in Dec. 1851. Anna signed with a mark. Joseph Street and Jacob Eberle witnessed. (I have copy of the transaction.) There was a John Adair in this area with a least 4 children: Betsy, Charles, George, and Elijah. This may be their family. (children of John Solomon which follow are shown as born at Grimsby) David Called Teetzel (July 25/26, 1802-June 2, 1877): Probably the family listed in the following 1851 Census record from Kent Co, p.26. David is listed as a farmer, born Canada, religion SC, age 48. His wife is listed as Susannah, housewife, born Canada, religion ME, age 46. ^I. John M. Tetzel, farmer, Canada, religion ME, age 25, single. This individual is believed to be the John (age 55 in 1880 census for Saginawin MI) married to Euphemia Zimmerman (age 49). This is the same Euphemia Teetzel (Aug 1831) living in 1900 in St. Clair with her son in law John Henry "Henry J." Zimmermann. Per descendants Robert, Mary, and Bob Webb here is more information on the family. John M. Teetzel was born in Canada Apr 5, 1827, moved to Port Huron in Michigan, died Oct 25, 1897 in Brockway, MI. Euphemia was born Aug. 29, 1831 in Ontario. She was the daughter of either James Dawdy Zimmerman or Henry Zimmerman and Phoebe Ralm. They had six children: a. John Teetzel b. David Teetzel c. Sarah Teetzel d. e. Adaline "Addie" Teetzel (per 1880 census MI, age 11, March 1869) married Charles Tunis. f. Mabel Teetzel (1880 census shows Mary age 6, Dec. 8, 1873, MI-Mar 12, 1906, MI) married the John Henry/Henry John Zimmerman of the 1900 census, who was also her first cousin, the son of her mother's brother. ^II. William, farmer, Canada, religion ME, age 20. In 1871 census believe he is listed as age 41, in Trafalgar TWP. ^III. George, son, same, age 7 (1844) ^IV.

Rachel Teetzel (Dec. 18, 1804 - Jan. 9, 1805, age 1 year) Mary Teetzel (Feb. 21, 1805/06 - Mar. 9, 1835) married Feb. 5, 1823 Joseph Simmons (died 1855). Margaret Teetzel (Nov. 5, 1808) married Joseph Everitt/Evanley/Evenly. Joseph Teetzel (June 12, 1812-June 15, 1856, 44 yrs, 3 days) married March 8, 1842 Sarah Eberle of Orford at the Regular Baptist Church of St. Thomas.

James Eberle Teetzel (Mar 8, 1849, Dutton) married Oct, 27, 1874 in Dunwich, Elgin Julia Ann Leich/Leitch. ^i. Edward Eberle Teetzel (Aug. 22, 1876, Dutton)married Elsie Worrel Davis 1905 Arrow Lakes, BC. Sarah Teetzel (June 12, 1812-Jan. 3, 1861, 48 yrs, 6 mns, 21 days) married Jan. 1, 1835 Lockwood Street. Her obituary in the Christian Guardian stated she was born in Niagara District, lived in Palmyra. (Lockwood Street is the brother of Jacob Street who married Sarah's sister Julia.) John Solomon Teetzel married second October 17, 1813, in Grimsby, Lincoln Co., Mary, widow of James Campbell. Children of second wife: son born dead 1813/1814 son (May 18, 1816 - May 20, 1816, 2 days) Hiram Teetzel (Sept. 6, 1817, Grimsby)married Elizabeth Hager. He may have also moved to St. Jospeh, MI. ^I. John Teetzel of Palermo ^II. Charles Teetzel ^III. David Teetzel (July 26, 1802) of Dister, Yarmouth TWP, later moved to Woodstock (1873). His descendants were said in 1916 to live in Los Angeles and be marble dealers. ^IV. Lorenzo H. Teetzel (April 9, 1841, MI-Nov 25, 1910, MO, age 69 yrs, 7 months, 16 days) married Hilda M. Johnson (Mar 7, 1879, Norway-Jan 21, 1967, MN). Her death certificate shows the last name Harris, widow. I assume she remarried. They are both buried Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul, MN. Lorenzo Teetzel (Sept 1/10, 1819 - Dec. 23, 1845) (TS-Palermo) married Deborah Book. Carolina Teetzel (May 29, 1823, Palermo, Halton Co.) Eveline Teetzel (Jan 20, 1825, Hulton-Jan. 27, 1825) TS-Palmero) The statement from which much of this information is taken states that John Teetzel came to North America in 1780, and that the Teetzels moved to Upper Canada in 1800. (This is the same year listed in the Street land petitions.) The obituary of his oldest son Charles also states that the family came to Canada around 1800, adding that they settled near Forty-mile Creek in Grimsby. (C 371) In relating the names of his children, John Solomon Teetzel certified that all his children had been baptized according to the rules of the Church of England, and gave the names of the ministers who performed the last three baptisms, the last two were Methodists. So far I have located public documents listing John S. or John Solomon Teetzel as either a witness to a will or as the individual completing inventory of an estate in Sussex County, New Jersey in Newton, Hardwick, and Knowlton Townships between Feb. 20, 1794 and Jan. 3, 1799. In a letter written in 1916, James Vernal Teetzel, great grandson of John Solomon Teetzel, gives some slight differences from the above. J. S. Teetzel was born in Saxe Cobourg Gotha, Germany. He was being educated for the priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church, but ran away to America, arriving "shortly after the close of the Revolutionary War". He had a knowledge of Greek, as evidenced by writing in an old family Bible printed in German. John Solomon's wife was a Fisher. He was an expert marble cutter placing the initial "T" at the bottom of the stones he cut. (Note: per Paul Hutchinson who is researching monuments in the Niagra area of Canada during this period were made of , not marble.)
Supposedly two sisters with some wealth were said to have been left behind in Germany. John Solomon Teetzel was a secretary of the Masonic Lodge in Grimsby and his "beautiful" handwriting preserved in their records. "Valuable family" records appear to have been entrusted to Hiram Teetzel, apparently of St. Joseph, MI (1887). K-186 states that John S. Teetzel was age 21 when he came to Canada and had "a knowledge of the dead languages and for years was engaged at teaching in New Jersey. In 1802 he moved to Ontario and settled in the county of Morgan (here someone crossed out Morgan and wrote Lincoln), where he became very prominent in Masonry and for years was the secretary of the lodge in that locality. After his second marriage he moved to the County of Halton where he died.

John Solomon Teetzel is buried here.

It is located in Gore District,Halton, near where Highway 5 intersects with Highway 25.

JONATHAN JOHNSON TEETZEL (son of John Solomon Teetzel)

Born: Aug. 22, 1795, NJ, presumably Sussex Co. Died: Jan 17, 1873/79 in Southwold, Ontario
Married Jan. 1, 1817, in Grimsby, Mary Lawrence (Nov. 22, 1797, Grimsby-Aug. 23, 1855, Southwold).

Jonathan's grandson remembers him recounting the story of his wedding trip to Southwold. "...a sled drawn by a yoke of steers, taking all of their household effects and possessions with them....Fingal is about 100 miles west of Grimsby so that the day after he was married he took that as a wedding trip. He took up 200 acres of land in Col Talbot's settlement and visited it the Fall before putting in some wheat and building a cabin." This grandson states that Jonathan was a Methodist, a bee keeper, and fought in the battle of Lundy's Lane as a militiaman volunteer attached to the commissariat driving a yoke of steer. The couple's children are shown as all born in Southwold on an old family record. (Copy of that record in the author's possession.) In 1814 he located in the Co. of Middlesex on a farm obtained from Col. Talbot.
