By 1692, the great-great grandchildren of Hans Witzel are born in Vacha, with Johan Casper Witzel, son of Johann Andreas Witzel. But by 1752, Johan Casper Witzel moves to Wabern to establish a long Witzel line here.

The history of this line is the work of Karl Heinz Witzel. He is the author of a booklet entitled Die Witzels von Wabern. He is also the author of Ortsfamilienbuch Wabern, a modern compilation of the records of old church books and other documents in Wabern.
