* The Family Web*

Updated June 29, 2011

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it...." So said Chief Seattle. Researching our family connections throughout time allows each of us to better appreciate the role we play in the web of life. It also affords us the opportunity to "re-connect" with our scattered families.

My family research is a "work in progress" and is not fully verified. Please use it only as a starting point for your own research. I have a website at which contains source files, photos, and gedcoms of many researchers who collaborate with me to trace the lines listed below, and numerous affiliated family lines. If you'd like to join our collaboration, or seek more up-to-date research than is represented here, please contact me at I descend from German immigrants Johannes and Anna Flinner (arrived PA 1754) and from Johan Michel Hattenbach who arrived in Philadelphia in 1752 with a Johan George Hattenbach who was possibly his brother. An earlier Hattenbach immigrant, Jacob, arrived in 1749 and may have been an older brother of Michael and George. The names changed to Fleenor and Hattabaugh and the Flinner family followed a migratory path from PA>MD>VA>IN and points west. Johan Michael Hattenbach's son George moved from PA to VA to IN. around 1809 but stopped first in KY to link up with Jacob Hattabaugh, the grandson of the 1749 immigrant. Both George and Jacob settled in Indiana Territory as neighbors.

Other names in the files are:
*Blackwood * Roney * McCallem * Turley * Trueblood *Jackson * Carter * Greene * Smith * Nelson *Barnett * Fulkerson * Crow(e) * Templeton * Holmes *Shields * Walker * Stalker * Koiner/Keinadt/Coyner
*Nicholson * Denny * Roll * Johnson * Diller
*Kemp * Robbins * Potts * and many others

Geographic ares of research include:

Countries : * Germany * Ireland
* England * Scotland

States: Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana, Tennessee and points west.
