Hi Linda,

I checked the Hahn sites you listed but couldn't connect to the Hahn page???I don't know where my George HAHN was born. I've never been able to locate him on a census record. I know the following: 1His wife's name was Jenny.
2. He died before 1882
3. He had three daughters, Irene, Ellin, and Dellaphine.
4. Dellaphine was born 16 Jun 1864 in Mansfield, Richland Co., OH
5. Somehow Dellaphine was in Jasper Co., MO by 1883 where she married Nathaniel Ben Carlisle.

Would any of your Hahns been in OH in mid-1860's? Thanks so much for responding to my query.

Info on George W. Hahn

Date: Tue, 30 Sep 1997
From: [email protected]


It has been quite a while since I had looked at your page and I see you have been making additions. Your work is greatly appreciated.

I would like to add a little information about a couple of the families. Specifically, Dr. George Washington Hahn was born 18 Dec 1842, I think in Mississippi, since his parents Christian and Annie Hahn Hahn sold the family farm before he was born and then bought property after his birth. Also the 1850 or 60 census gives his state of birth as Mississippi. Dr. Hahn died on 24 June 1917 and was buried in Hickory two days later. He was married to Frances Rebecca Abernethy, b-15 Oct 1847 and died 17 Oct 1919. Her parents were Dr. Robert Laban Abernethy b-3 April 1822in Burke Co and died 28 Nov 1894, and Mary Hayes, b 1834 in Lovejoy and died 12 Nov 1912 in Rutherford College, Burke Co. Dr. Abernethy was the founder of the college for which the town is named. Mary was a fourteen year old student when they were married. I have more on these lines if you are interested.

Also, you may be aware of the book published by Dr. Hahn in 1912, "The Catawba County Soldier in the Civil War" which has sketches of most of the soldiers from the county as well as pictures of many. I am descended from Otto North Hahn. The door knocker from the Dr. Hahns home has been passed down through the years and is in my possession. Nothing special, but nice. Thought this may be of interest. If you have any information on Turner Abernethy, son of Robert III, and his wife, Froney (Fannie) Whitener I would be curious as well.

Ken Jackson

Ken, you have two men of the same name combined. Prof. George W. Hahn is indeed author of The Catawba Soldier in the Civil War but he lived in the Catawba County NC area all his life. The other George Washington Hahn was born and lived in Missouri. The first was married to Frances Abernethy and the second was married to Elizabeth Hovis. Linda

I am in a quandry. Could you do me a favor and furnish me your source that Sarah Hahn did marry William Trout on 10/29/1807.

The reason that I am asking is the fact that I am corresponding with another Haas descendant who shows that William Trout (b. 1781 in TN?; and d. 4/11/1878in Lewis Twp., Brown Co., OH) married Sarah (Sally) Hauss/Haas on 10/29/1807.She also shows that Sarah/Sally died7/28/1879 also in Lewis Twp., Brown Co.,OH.

Any info will be appreciated.

Thanks so much for taking the time to respond with what info you have or can remember.

By the way, it is Dianne, my mother was a Katherine so she called me by my second name. Though that does not expain why she called my youngest sister by her middle name. Everything you have given me will be useful, because it helps me to better understand my ancestors. I'm wishing my grandmother were stil lalive because I know she would have old letters and papers for me to look at. I have the china cabinet she used to keep all those types of things in while she was still living. That was the one thing I truly wanted when they settled her estate, so my husband and I bid on it and I am very lucky to have it because it brings back memories every time I open those drawers.

I'm still digging for more information. I hope to try to see what I can find out about ancestors in Germany. Did not have much luck Sunday with the little bit of time that I had to devote to browsing.

Joshua Hahn

Subject: Re: Family?
Date: Mon, 27 Apr 1998
From: "Harold F. Hahn"

It looks as though we're all part of Johannes' family. I'm certain my father had told me, before he died in 1962 when I was 10, that our first Hahn born in America was born in Pensylvania (and I believe that his name was Joshua). In any case I'm a great-grandson of the eldest son, Benjamin, of David Hahn (born in Cape Girardeau, MO, in 1810) and Mary Hubbard ( in KY and daughter of Asa Hubbard from CT).

My grandfather William Jefferson Hahn took his family to Osage Co., OK, shortly after the oil strikes there at the turn of the century. My previous research, now largely lost, had turned up some mention of Joshua having a youngest child David(with no further information given) and Joshua listed as dying prior to 1817. I believe some of the MO information and the various various petitions signed and sent to Washington in protest of the expropriation of their Spanish land grants may indicate a later death than 1807 for Joshua. In any case it appears that our David was living with one of the older Hahns settled in the Illinois River areaofsouthern IL (I believe Joshua, Jr., and one or two other Hahn households were listed in the 1820 census in what is now the Greene Co./Scott Co. area and I believe some were there in a special census I believe was taken in1816). As I recall from research 20yrs. ago at least one of these households was listed a shaving males in the right age range for David. In1828 David started his own homestead in the area. I believe some of the Hahns remained in that area until fairly recent times and in the 80's Ifound phone listings, etc., in the area which I can no longer find today. Most of descendants of our group that went to OK about 1906/7 are scattered across OK and TX to the best of my knowledge. O fmy grandparents 5 children(out of 12? per 1910 Census) who survived childhood 3eventually wound up in Washington, DC/Northern VA, but the 2 that remained in OK ( James and Benjamin) produced a lot more descendants.

(Personal information deleted)Last April Susan and I drove along the Skyline Drive/Blueridge Parkway on our honeymoon and detoured east to Hickory and visited a local library and visited Zion Lutheran Church there and photographed his gravestone.

Hi Linda


My Hahns are such a mess, you wouldn't want them. The only thing I can state absolutely certain is that my gr gr grandmother was Susannah Hahn b.11-10-1845, probably Perry Co., MO. Her parents have been given as Solomon Hahn b. abt. 1815, supposedly the son of Abraham Hahn and Barbara Wise, and Mary Polly Bollinger, but this has been disputed. I'm sure you know how "family tales" go, and it has been said that Sarah and her siblings were the children of Mary Bollinger and John Hahn b.6-24-1794, s/o Joshua Hahn and brother to the above Abraham Hahn. From Abraham and Barbara's bible we see the births of their children, and on 6-6-1817 they had a son, ABSOLOM. Now, this is first and only mention I have ever come across for a son by this name. We know there WAS a Solomon Hahn b. abt. 1815 living in Perry Co. MO, Cinnque HommeTwp.H.H. #301 with wife Mary and children Abraham, Andrew, SUSANNAH, and Henry ,collectively known as my grgr grandmother's family. Living next door in #302 is Adam J. Bollinger and wife Sarah, nee Hahn, the daughter of Abraham and Barbara(Wise) Hahn. Living at #305 is Abraham and Barbara Hahn with three children, Catharine, Rachel, and Abraham. Solomon Hahn died about 1855 and there are no death records in Perry Co. that early. No probate, etc., nothing.

Could Absolom Hahn, son of Abraham and Barbara be one in the same as SOLOMON Hahn??? Your guess is as good as mine, but the Solomon who appears with my gggrandmother in 1850 was indeed a real, living person ,and had a very close relationship with Abraham Hahn. The story about John Hahn being the actual father is taken very seriously by some folks. Personally, with 14 children of his own with wife Elizabeth Bollinger,I don't see where he had much spare time.Stories of his sexual prowess have circulated for years, and he has become somewhat a legend(GR). Bu tif my gg grandmother and her 5 siblings were illegitimate, then who is the Solomon Hahn living with them in 1850??

I'll bet I've thoroughly confused you here!

I saw your web page about the Hahn family that mentioned George Franklin Hahn.I know this is a stretch, but I was wondering if you were in contact with him and/or his family?

I ask because I'm trying to hunt down a book he wrote called "Some Descendants of Andrew Huneycutt, 1809, son of Eli B." (1993edition, not 1977). I've seen an earlier edition of his work on this name and I think there might be a link between his family and mine. The only places I've found that have the book, however, are the Library of Congress and the National Genealogical Society. (I've tried Interlibrary loans and calling the local libraries around Mt. Pleasant, which is where the book was published.) I'm actually going to be in NC (Charlotte area) on the 16th and17th of June and was hoping to possibly find more information while I'm there. If you know of any way I can get my hands on this book, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Please respond before June 11, if possible, because that's when I leave for my trip. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Linda :Milly Hunt gave me the majority of her Hon/Honn/Hawn/Haun/Hahn family generalogical materials, including your wonderful family history. Unfortunately, Milly's Macular degeration has progressed to the point she cannot continue her research. She has so much material over her 35 plus year collection, it's impossible for me to cover all of it in one volume.

I am Marilyn Westlund McCarthy, a third cousin to Albert Hunt, Milly's husband. We descend from Andrew Hon and Sarah Hoke Hon, Albert's second greatgrandfather and my second great grandmother being brother and sister.

Andrew Hon's parents were Jacob Hon/Honn and Mary A. Lawrence. I'm compiling a publication mainly based on the descendants of Andrew Hon and Sarah Hoke Hon at this point but plan to cover Andrew's ancestors at a later date. I am very interested in your Hahn Family history and your huge amount of research is most impressive.

I'm trying to further prove parentage of Jacob Hon & Mary Lawrence who died in Owen County, Indiana. It occurred to me that you may have come across more information since your publication was finished? I'd be most interested is you would share with me anything you might have in connection with Jacob Hon and Mary Lawrence. Of course, I'm happy to share any of my materials with you.

My father was Herbert hadley who married maude grindstaff, my grandfather henry august who married emily steakley, my great grandfather was marion who married louisa welker, my g-g grandfather was john who married eliz bollinger, my g-g-g grandfather was joshua who married eliz hunccle, the son of Johannes and agnes hahn. I have a partial copy of WP Hahns history. I would appreciate any info on the johannes, ie. why he left germany? who was his father and family in germany? how did he serve in rev war? where did they live in PA? any idea as to the origins of name hahn other than it is rooster in deutsch?

my father was born in Bollinger County, MO and migrated to St. Louis. I still have one aunt living, aunt annie, in sedgewickville mo. i believe she is 93. i look forward to hearing from you. (

From the Middle High German "han" or "hane" meaning cock or rooster, Hahn was originally a nickname for a proud, cocky individual. LHS)

Well, hello 'cuz! Greetings from Texas! We most definitely have a link!!

I am a descendant of:

Ernest Dow GREEN b: 1876 son of:
Joseph R. GREEN b: 1843 and Emma E. HONN b: 1849 in IN dtr of: Jacob HONN, Jr. b: 1812 in MO and Mary A. Putoff (BOTTORFF) b: 1815in KY son of: Jacob HONN b: ca 1776 in NC and Mary Lawrence b: 1787 in NC etc. etc.

Ernest Dow GREEN was my grandfather, the father of my mother. My records indicate that Jacob HONN, Jr. was a Methodist minister, but I'm starting to wonder if I have gotten the two Jacob's mixed up. I'm not real sure on that point.

Anyway, very excited to find your webpage and was most anxious to say hi to a new cousin!!

Linda, I've enjoy your work on the Hawn Family. I know my father will get akick out of the data. He is 82 years young and remembers talk about some of these family members from his father (Ressie) and grandfather(Jefferson). Their graves are in St. Genevieve County, in the Chestnut Ridge Baptist Cemetery on HY 32, near the St. Francis County line. If I get any data that might be of interest, I'll hit you on the WEB.

Again, thank you for your fine work, R
