I'm not aware of any connection, though, it would appear likely that they are somehow related! I'd love to know how, as my great-great grandfather Abraham Bachtel continues to be an enigma (nothing known of HIS parents or siblings)!

As I'm letting my subscription to this website lapse (to save money), I'm going to post two loose ends from my own handwritten notes from the pre-internet days. May they be of some use to you:
From: A petition of {the Orphan Court to settle the estate of} Abraham Bechtel, son of Abraham Bechtel the elder late of East Huntington twp., Westmoreland, Co., PA, who died leaving ten children {and no will}. Document dated: 5/22/1815.3339
The children's names being:
1) Peter, eldest son (husband of Sophia)
2) Henry
3) Abraham
4) George (husband of Catharine)
5) Martin
6) Barbara (wife of Uly Ellnberger)
7) Hannah (wife of Peter Stockslager)
8) Mary (wife of William Vance)
9) Elizabeth (wife of Christian Riest)
10) Ester

An Andrew K. Bachtel owned property about nine miles from Abraham Bachtel's farm. He died in Pleasant Township, Hancock Co., OH on 3-31-1874, aged 71 years. Andrew's estate was executed by a Hiram J. Bachtel. How related?

Good luck. Here is my e-mail: randleland (at) alltel (dot) net
