Hans Georg Bäuchel, son of Hanss Andreas Bäuchel & Anna Maria Schmierer, was born 9 April 1725 in Wiernsheim. He married on 4 April 1752 to Maria Juditha Schochen, daughter of Michael Schochen of Werse [today in Nordrhein-Westfalen].

The baptisms of children born to Hans Georg Bäuchel & Maria Juditha Schochen are recorded in the parish register of Wiernsheim: (1) Maria Catharina, born 23 October 1752, baptized 24 October 1752; (2) Johann Georg, born 22 June 1754, baptized 23 June 1754; and (3) Regina, born & baptized 20 December 1758, died 8 April 1761.

Hans Georg Beuchle [sic] a daylaborer (Tagelöhner) and linen weaver (Leinweber) from the area of Maulbronn in Württemberg, his wife Juditha, and children (Catharina, age 8; Georg, age 6) arrived in Flensburg, Schleswig-Holstein (Denmark) on 1 August 1761 and swore allegiance to the King of Denmark on 3 August 1761. They were dismissed from the Danish colonies on 6 June 1763.
