12 "9.Oct.1591. Georg was born to Michael Grimm and Catharina. Georg Wagner was the godfather." This record comes from the Nördlingen parish.

In the death register for 21.Nov.1633 there appears "Michael Grimm, baker, 70 years old."

Catharina Grimm does not appear in the death register but it only starts in 1618. The marriage of Michael and Catharina is not recorded in Nördlingen.

30 (Research):Henry V. Haley was living in Quinnimont District, Fayette Co., WV in the 1900 census. Based upon families living nearby (Backus, Fox, particularly Charles A. Fox, JOP), I have estimated his residence to be near Crickmer or Clute. The Hawley Coal Co. (Meadow Bridge) is a possibility for H.V.H.'s place of work. There appears to have been a sawmill and railroad close by his residence as well.

In the 1920 Census, Henry V. Haley was living with his family on Willis Branch Road. It seems likely that he would have been employed at Willis Branch Coal Co.

George Howard Zvonaric appeals from the district court's denial of his petition for writ of habeas corpus and dismissal without prejudice of his motion to transfer. We affirm.

Zvonaric is imprisoned in the Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, Minnesota, serving a two year sentence imposed in May of 1974 by the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia following his plea of guilty to charges of possession of stolen mail and uttering and publishing a forged United States Treasury check.

...What a powerful word, "if." Mrs. Harter continued by elaborating on the family of John Jacob Peterson, an early South Branch settler in Hardy County, who had emigrated from Switzerland as Hans Joggi Bidert. In the Peterson family records, which are quite good for that time period (ca. 1750), there is no record or rumor of a daughter Mary married to a Cunningham. There was a daughter named Ursula, for which there is no further adult record, whom they suggest never returned from Indian captivity. Mary Harter made the preposterous suggestion that since "Maria" is the commonly given first name for many girls in Germanic families, Ursula must have been "Maria Ursula," and became known as Mary [Cunningham]. This is no different than having an ancestor named John, finding a family of that given surname that has a son named Valentine, then concluding that this must be your ancestor, since most Germanic sons had Johann as their first given name! In addition to this, only 36 years separates the birth of Ursula Peterson and James Cunningham's oldest child, which narrows in practical terms the possibility of her having been James' mother. Mary Harter also sidestepped the obvious conflict of James Cunningham's traditionally reported birth date of 1741, and Ursula' s of 1731. This really was unlike Mary Harter to have made such a ridiculous jump, and taints an otherwise excellent article. As strange as that was, it is even more frustrating that other readers/researchers uncritically added this lineage to their charts.

Via some incidental researching, the genesis of Mrs. Harter's suggestion may have been found. In her book The Hammers and Allied Families of Pendleton County, WV (1950), Elsie Byrd Boggs reported (p.2) that the Petersons were "sometimes called Pedroes." While it is true that the Bidert family underwent several varietal name changes to Peterson, including Peters, I have not found any evidence that the Petersons were ever called Petro. Most of what Mrs. Boggs recounted were family traditions. She later (p.23) told about the Cunningham family, and the Petro family that came about the same time; ". . . their [Petro's] daughter became the wife of John Cunningham." Mrs. Boggs went on to recount the Indian captivity. With family traditions, it is hard to tell what is accurate and what gets garbled after 200 years. It is also unclear if the family legend was "Petro" and Mrs. Boggs changed it to Peterson, or if the legend was Peterson and changed it to Petro. As many in Randolph County know, there is a distinct family named Petro. They first settled in Hampshire County, and moved to Randolph County in the late 1700's. I ran across a brief narrative of that family, by James H. Petro of Chillicothe, OH; it is interesting to note that three members of the Petro family were also taken captive by Indians. He did not mention any connection to the Cunninghams. Their generational time-frames would not seem to accommodate Mary (Cunningham) Ward.

Another Peterson connection comes through the William and Mary (Bennett) Peterson family of Lewis County. A book by W. H. Peterson claims that William Peterson was of Swedish descent, the son of Lawrens Peterson; the author claimed that Lawrens married Nancy Jones and settled on the South Branch. Unfortunately, a rather imposing tombstone recounts this in a cemetery at Vandalia in Lewis County. There is absolutely no evidence of a Lawrens Peterson anywhere near the Hampshire County area. In fact, the available evidence suggests that William descends from the same Peterson family described above. While I have yet to find any proving evidence, William's circumstantial evidence (mostly tax lists) always place him in proximity to that family. Given William's approximate birth date of 1762, he was of the generation to have been a grandson of John Jacob Peterson/Hans Joggi Bidert Sr. Jacob Sr. had three sons: Jacob Jr., Martin, and Michael. The families of Jacob Jr. and Martin are fairly well documented. However, we can't just assume that William was a son of Michael, due to our lack knowledge of all the relationships and possible illegitimate relationships. In that same book by W.H. Peterson, a Henry Peterson was reported as a brother to William. Oddly enough, I know of no evidence of a Henry in relation to the Hardy-Hampshire County family. Henry Peterson was reported to have come to Lewis County in 1816 from Cumberland, MD; this may be accurate, and there may not have any relationship between William and Henry.

Corrected Pedigrees by Jeff Carr

Bennetts. Over the years, a variety of mistakes have been passed along about the Bennett family. One of the more persistent ones comes from The Holt-Bennett Family History (1974). This book refers largely to the Holt family and a few other of the author's related families. Only thirty pages of it refer to the Bennetts, and those trace the descendants of William and Rebecca (McCauley) Bennett. Of this, one paragraph recounts the Bennett ancestry of William Bennett. It reports that Joseph Bennett Sr. of Pendleton County was the son of a William Bennett who was born in England in 1668, and that William married Elizabeth Lee. They supposedly had a son, Joseph, who was born in 1695 in New Jersey, married a Mary Vernon, and died in 1767; this is supposed to be our Joseph Sr. No evidence or references to support corroborate these are given; this, of course, makes it totally unreliable. The last bit about Joseph is completely refutable; it is incredibly unlikely that he was born in 1695, had kids in the 1745-68 range, and was living as late as 1804 in Harrison County. We know that Joseph Bennett Sr. did not die in 1767. However, once again, some researchers have uncritically added these purported ancestors to their charts without verification. While those people (William and Elizabeth, Joseph of 1695, and Mary Vernon) may have existed, no one has yet offered any documentable evidence, or connected them to our Pendleton County family.

The late Mary Harter did extensive research on the Bennett family, and sold manuscripts of her research in the late 1970's. Since that time, several of us have continued to research this family and the progress has been slow. At present, our research has taken us only as far back as Joseph Sr., and then not always definitively. Another Bennett mistake that has continued to have a seemingly immortal life of it's own came from The Henckel Genealogy, and The Henckel Genealogical Bulletin. Without going into the myriad of details, the wife of Joseph Bennett Jr. was given as Hannah Elsworth. This has been refuted and corrected in both The Henckel Bulletin and this journal, and in much correspondence by those who continue to advance the research on the Bennett family. However, some researchers continue to carry the Elsworth name on their sheets; it should be removed. Evidence has been reviewed that suggests that Hannah's maiden name may have been Starnes. Corroborating public-record evidence of this, and her parentage have yet to be found.

40 (Research):Robert A. Hunter was an illegitimate child. According to my grandfather, Bob was the son of "a Hayslett." When asked about a first name, I was given "John Hayslett... maybe." After looking at records, I found that John Franklin Hayslett would have been about 16 at the time of Robert A. Hunter's conception - not impossible, but highly improbable. I then thought Bob's father to be George Hayslett, father of the aforementioned John F. However, this too seems somewhat improbable - I have no record of George Hayslett in Greenbrier Co. Which brought me to my next theory - Robert B. Hunter's father was Robert Bradley Hayslett - the oldest son of George Hayslett. At the time of Bob's conception, he would have been about 21 years old. I have no record of Robert B. Hayslett in Greenbrier Co., much like his father. This would fit the other story I was told by my grandfather - Bob Hunter's father was murdered (as Grandpa put it, "they (who they were was never specified) took the sonuvabitch out in the woods, made him dig a big hole, shot him, shot his horse, and buried both on the spot." The similarity in the names of alleged father and son would also seem to be a link as Robert is not a name found in either the Hunter or Kelly families. I have since discovered that Robert Bradley Hayslett remained in Rockbridge Co. where he was married and had a family. Which led to my final theory - Robert B. Hunter is the son of Robert Hayslett, brother of George. Robert Hayslett would have been about 42 at the time of Bob's birth, and died single (no record of his death exists, but it was sometime after 1887 - so much for my grandfather's story). Note: All Hayslett(e)s found in Greenbrier Co. are the descendants of George Hayslett.

According to my grandfather, Roy M. Hunter, his "Granddaddy Bob" was... what was his word... a "sonuvabitch." In no way could he be considered "kind." At some point, as the story goes, Kate left Bob for a period of about a week, running away to Indiana with a Mr. Burns (probably part of the Benjamin F. Burns family from Kieffer). Kate returned home, only to be greeted by her loving husband, gun in hand. Bob took a shot at her, aiming for her head, but missed his mark, only grazing her scalp (and ruining her bonnet). They were divorced shortly thereafter.

Bob was later married to Kate Shawver Crane, inheriting a large number of stepchildren. It was no secret that Bob did not care for the Crane children - they were not properly cared for and at times went hungry. Bob died in 1938 from massive head trauma resulting from having a seizure and falling into a fireplace. My grandfather discovered Bob after the accident, and along with a friend, took him to a doctor in East Rainelle where he was pronounced dead after some time. Foul play for some reason was suspected and Bob's death was investigated. My grandfather was even considered a suspect, but was never arrested.
