I have been working on the HARTLEP line for some time now.
Although I don't recognize the names you mention, the names I have are:
Kaspiere HARTLEB b. abt. 1815 Hanover, Germany
wife Mfary b. abt. 1817 Hanover, Germany, d. abt. 1853.
children: Caspere HARTLEB/HARTLEP
b. 20 October 1835 Hesse Cassel, Province of Hanover, Germany, m. 6 March 1864 Vermillion Co., IL.
d. 4 January 1918 Praire Twp., Warren co., IN
sp. Elizabeth Frances FRENCH

Charllotta HARTLEB/HARTLEP b. 1837, Prov. of Hanover, Ger.
Dudea HARTLEB/HARTLEP b. 1839, Prov. of Hanover, Ger.
Unsome HARTLEB/HARTLEP b. 1840, Prov. of Hanover, Ger.

I have the information that this family came to New York from Germany and somehow the first son (My line) Caspere became separated from his family and never found them again.
The time line I have for him is:

The spelling of Hartleb was determined from the Naturalization papers that Robert Casper Hartlep of Florida has. It is suspected that this spelling of Hartleb was an interpertation of the German pronounciation. It is very possible that the spelling was Hartlieb.
