I have been researching the Hoodenpyle Families in America since 1990 and currently working on the connection to the Gijsberti-Hodenpijl family in Holland. I have most of the entire family listing from 1756 - Present. Additional Surnames included are Campbell, Nichols, Hatfield, Kilgore, Turner & Rains. Most of these names come from the Sequatchie county area in Dunlap and Pikeville, Tennessee. The Hoodenpyles were farmers, road construction designers, merchants, professors, and Doctors that spread out to Warren county McMinnville, TN 25 miles north of Dunlap. More moved to NW Texas, Ark, Missouri, & OK. From those areas, more moved to Washington state, Idhao, Utah, and California. The Hodenpijl's of Holland were Knights and married into Royality. All the Hoodenpyles are related to Philip Gijsberti Hodenpyl of Holland. He came through Philidelphia PA. and his first settlement started in Buncombe County, (Asheville) North Carolina where he is considered one of the first families of the county and a Justice. He later helped to build the small town of Pikeville, (Bledsole Co.) TN. My paternal family is listed in the Phillip Gijsberti Hodenpyl descendants. My maternal family is listed in the Thomas Campbell descendants.

    April 23, 1598ľAugust 10, 1653 Maarten was an officer and later admiral in the Dutch navy. Born in Den Briel, Tromp was the son of an officer of an early Dutch man-of-war. His mother washed sailor's shirts to supplement the family income. At the age of nine, Tromp went to sea with his father and was present at the Battle of Gibraltar. He is well known in Holland. Our connection may be through Bastiaan Gijsberti Hodenpijl son of Philip Gijsberti and Hester Hodenpijl. Research is still in progress with Recia Bruggeman leading the way.
