1. JOHANN BERNHARD HERTZOG was born 23 Oct 1707, in Sandhausen, Baden, Germany and died in Orangeburgh District before 1790. He was the son of Hans Henrick Hertzog (b. about 1685) and Katharina Kreyenbuhl. Bernhard married (1)Maria Salome Meyer (daughter of Johann Georg Meyer) on 21 Jan 1733 in Sandhausen, Baden, Germany. He married (2)Ann Mary ____ (widow of Warner Ulmer) on 15 Aug 1756 in Orangeburgh District, South Carolina[6,7].
Barnard's occupation was a cooper.
He, his wife and four surviving children left Sandhausen "for the New Land" on 29 Apr 1752 . On 20 Oct 1752, in the SC Council Journal, Bernhard petitioned for a land grant of 300 acres for his wife and four children, in which he states that he came over on the Cunliff. The Cunliffe arrived in Charleston on 19 Sep 1752, following a major hurricane that hit Charleston on 15 Sep, 1752 . He also states that his children were Tobias, age abt. 18 (actually 16), George about 16 (actually 14) and Barbara and Elisabeth (twins) age abt. 10. His name was recorded as Barnard Hartogs in the petition. A plat was prepared on 20 Nov 1752 for 300 acres on Cow Castle Swamp below Orangeburg Township in Berkley County  and the land grant was issued on 2 Jan 1754 .
On 16 Nov 1755, Barnard Hartzog was suscept for the baptism of Mary Catharina, daughter of John and Elizabeth Waber, born 9 Sep 1755. On 27 Feb 1757, Barnard and Anne Mary Hertzog were surets at the baptism of John Martin, son of George Frederick and Elizabeth Knobel, born 18 Jan 1757 [6,7]. Barnard Hartzog and his wife, Mary, along with Peter Foure witnessed the will of Henry Snell, Sr. on 5 Aug 1760 .
Bernard's memorial of 26 Feb 1763 paid quit rent on 300 acres . On 13 Jan 1763, a plat was made showing 100 acres of Barnard's original land grant being sold to Michael Bender. In a 22 Nov 1769 memorial, George Hinkel paid quit rent on these 100 acres and stated that he bought it on 9 Sep 1769 .
Barnard Hartzog is shown on the 1778-1789 Petit Jurors list . He did not appear in the 1790 census.
Children of Bernhard Hartzog and (1)Maria Meyer are:
a. Infant HERTZOG, born and died on 20 Dec 1733.
b. TOBIAS HERTZOG was born on 13 Mar 1736 in Sandhausen, Baden, Germany and died in South Carolina.
On 2 Apr 1760, Tobias was a witness to a deed where Henry Felder bought land from James Taylor .
On 7 Sep 1760, Tobias and his wife, Mary, were surets at the baptism of Isham Clayton [6,7].
He was granted 100 acres on the east side of the north fork of the Edisto River at Water's Pond in 1764 [12,28,29]. Nine years later, in 1773, he was granted another 100 acres on the North side of the Edisto River on Pen Branch [13,36,37]. This land joined land that he already owned and that of his brother, George. On 4 Sep 1786, he was granted 417 acres on Pen Branch [14,38].
Tobias' name appears on the Petit Jurors list of 1778-1779 .
On 21 Mar 1785 Tobias received an Indented Certificate (to Tobias Herzog) for 2 pounds 8 shillings for corn and forage furnished to General St. Clair in 1881. He received, on the same day, another Indented Certificate (to Tobias Hartsack) for 15 pounds, 8 shilling for 1200 pounds of beef furnished for Continental use in 1782. His signature appears on this document as Tobias Hartzog . Tobias' name appears in a petition of 1785 concerning building a road .
In 1788, a petition was made to the S. C. House of Representatives asking for incorporation for 15 German Protestant churches. The petition was signed by pastors and some male members. Tobias Hartzog was one of the signees as a member of the Frederican Church on Cattles Creek .
On 21 Aug 1788, a lawsuit, brought by Tobias on 13 Sep 1786, against Samuel Griffeth accusing him of defrauding Tobias of 32 head of meat cattle, was decided by a jury in Griffeth's favor. Tobias had to pay Griffeth's attorney 15 pounds 15 shillings .
On 10 May 1789, Tobias made a will, which was certified by William Gressett, on 20 Nov 1790 that he and Tobias Hartzog, Jr. witnessed the signing of the will by Tobias. Tobias, Jr. is thought to be his nephew, the son of his brother, George. Since Tobias was not in the 1790 census, he probably died after 10 May 1789 and before the census was taken in 1790. In his will, he leaves 250 acres of land to his son George. He divides his goods and chattel among George's brothers and sisters. He names daughters Elizabeth, Margaret, Barbarah, Mary Ann, and Catherina, but does not name any other sons. His executors were his wife, Mary, his son George, and his daughter Margaret . (Note: I have not found any documentation concerning Tobias' descendants.)
c. HANS GEORGE HERTZOG was born 23 Nov 1738 in Sandhausen, Baden, Germany and and died in South Carolina. He married Catherine Magdalen Snell abt. 1765 in South Carolina (according to family tradition).

On 5 Jun 1786, a State plat was issued for Catherine Hartzog for 100 acres on the waters of Four Holes, adjoining Peter Frederick's land .
According to family tradition, a Tory, by the name of Blitchington, killed George in 1782 at Rush's Mill, in Barnwell District near the present town of Olar, and Catherine was killed when lightening struck the chimney of her house in 1789. Neither George nor Catherine appears in the 1790 census.
