Happy to see this site, but my line may be off this path. My Hatmaker's history takes me from Florida, to Huntington WV, to Chillicothe, Oh, Then Dierbach, Germany (Huthmacher's). Sister: Elizabeth (Beth) Kaye (Hatmaker) Weeks, Father: Charles Richard Hatmaker, Paternal G-father: Loy E. Hatmaker. With the rest in writing somewhere.

I just stumbled onto this site and I am amazed and thrilled and somewhat daunted by the volume of Hatmakers out there! My father was Luther Lee Hatmaker, Jr., son of Luther Sr. and Cora (Gipson, maybe? Not sure.) I believe my grandparents were originally from WV and later lived in and near Lafollette, TN. Don't have any more info about ancestry on my father's side. I would love to know more. If anyone is able to provide info please contact me at the email provided.

I am a Hatmaker, even though my last name isn't. I am tracing my lineage and need some help. I can trace the Hatmaker name back this way: my grandfather was Charles Franklin Hatmaker Sr of Three Point, KY; his dad was John Franklin Hatmaker of Caryville, TN; his dad was Madison Hatmaker of Caryville, TN; his dad was John Hatmaker (born circa 1833) in TN; his dad was William Hatmaker born in 1795 in Orange, NC and died January 21, 1887 in Campbell County, TN. That is as far as I can find myself. Any help and comments would be greatly appreciated

For many years I lived across the street from Ernest and Libby Hatmaker. There were four children: Peggy, Billy, Nancy, and Eddy. I moved away in 1957. I have lost track of them, (the children). Then I found this website. I am looking for any information on them. I enjoyed reading some of the messages. My maiden name was Holliday, and I lived on Sanders Lane, Fountain City, TN. It was a wonderful time in a great little town, with wonderful neighbors like the Hatmakers.

Thanks to all who worked tirelessly researching and providing us with the history of our Hatmaker ancestors. We, the descendants, now have the opportunity to pay tribute to our ancestors, and show our appreciation by contributing to the Monument Fund. What a tribute it will be to show that we are a generation who cares enough to preserve the history for future generations so the struggles and hardships our ancestors endured, while fighting for our freedom and Country, will never be forgotten. Our generation will have the privilege of seeing the monument erected where our ancestors settled in Campbell County, TN. The Hatmaker descendants can make this project move forward quickly and become a reality. Let's show our support for the Monument Fund as a memorial to our forefathers who paved the way for us!

My name is David Huthmacher and I am a descendant of Jacob Hatmaker(b. 1840) of the Ross County Hatmakers (later changed to Huthmacher). I see in the book "Shadows Over Us Part II" on pages 624-627 there is a chapter on the Ross County, Ohio Hatmakers. However, the book is listed as sold out. Is it possible more copies will be available in the future? Is this title available in any library. Is there a way someone could scan or photocopy these few pages and email or mail them to me? Even if someone could verify that Jacob (b. 1840) or his son Henry E. are mentioned or pictured, that would be very helpful to me.

I am a Campbell Co., Tennessee Hatmaker. My dad was Lawrence of the Demory community, Arthur, Joseph "Pence". My great grandmother was Millie Murray who married Pence. There were a lot of Murrays, Sharps, and Wilsons who married into the Hatmaker family. My dad and his brothers Ed and Raymond loved to joke and tell old stories. I think all the Hatmakers inherited this trait. They always had a big smile on their faces. You didn't know if it was a friendly smile or a smile about something they were getting ready to do to you. They loved to have fun. I miss them so much.

My dad's name was Ernest W Hatmaker born 1914, son of Julia Longmire and Issac Hatmaker. My dad, two brothers, Sam & Jack, and one sister Mary were put in an orphans home when they were young children.  He also had an older brother named Edward who went to work in the coal mine in Pineville, KY at age 14 so he did not go to the orphans home. My dad remembered living in Dug town, some where in La Follette, TN.

Hello.  My purpose for this letter is in regards to my belated father. Dad told me about a man who owned a diner in Lake City who gave him a place to stay as well as a job when grandpa abandoned all the kids. I found dad's old wallet along with a ticket with his SS#. At the bottom it reads Hatmaker's cafe Lake City TN. My I say I pay honor and tribute to your family member. Thank you.

Dear Patsy Lee Nunn, Please accept my family's condolences for the loss of your father. By your comments, he was a wonderful father to you, a light that guided you and a rock to lean upon--an inspiration to the entire family. I was particularly interested in your comments because my father and his siblings all lived at Evarts, KY. Dad was born in 1918 and died in 2002 near Pickerington, OH. His grandfather was Malone Hatmaker who operated a drygoods store in Evarts during the 1920s and 1930s. My dad's father, Jerry French Hatmaker, was born in 1896 at Hatmaker, TN (before Norris Lake it was located at the junction of Racetrack Hollow and Indian Creek). Malone was postmaster at Hatmaker for several years during the 1880s and 90s. One other thing that caught my attention was your commentary regarding buttermilk. I laughed because my father and grandfather loved buttermilk (I could never stand it myself) and many times I would see them filling a big glass with black skillet cornbread and buttermilk. At times, a little peach brandy and buttermilk seemed to be a favorite mix for them. I thought I would send you this note because I know how difficult it is to lose someone you love very much, It sounds as if you and your father were very close. The pain will subside in time, but thankfully not the memories. Also, I attempted to post a comment at the funeral home's website, but was unable to--it was confusing to me. P.S. I see that you live in Hillsville, VA. Hillsville and the town in which I was born and raised (Coalwood, WV) have much history in common.

I am the son of Charles Edward Hatmaker. My grandfathers name was Usher Claude Hatmaker. My father has 4 brothers. Ernest Hatmaker, Narvel Hatmaker, Carl Hatmaker, David Hatmaker, and Roger Hatmaker. Of these 4, two are now deceased (Roger, and David). They also had some sisters. Imogene, Cassandra, and Wilma. The question I have, and Jeff (Usher Carl's son) may be able to answer this one, I know that Cicero and some of the girls were actually Usher Claudes nephews and nieces and that his brother committed suicide while they were still young, but which ones of the girls were actually sisters? From a young age we have always referred to each and every one of them as "aunt" Imogene, Cassandra, or Wilma. Also Was Usher Claudes brother's name Virgil and wife Pearl? did he have any other brothers? and was the lady we always referred to as Aunt Mary Gill his sister? and did he have any other sisters? thanks, Brian Hatmaker

My Grandmother Bessie Slavy's maiden name was Hatmaker. Her fathers name was Milton Hatmaker and he is buried in the Roderfield Cemetery. I have a picture of his lunch room somewhere in Logan County as Hatmaker's Lunch. My grandfather and grandmother were from around Jellico, TN. She was born in Coal Creek now called Lake City, TN in 1896 and was 100 years old when died in 1996. They came to Coalwood around 1916. My father Harry Slavy was born in Yukon, WV in 1917. My grandmother had two brothers both deceased George and William. George left WV for Detroit and has one son still living named Bob Hatmaker.  Does anyone know my relatives?

I am the Grandson of Virgil Wilson, son of Mattie Hatmaker and William Wilson. I am in desperate need of any information, photos or whatever you may have of Virgil, William or Mattie. Virgil (born: 11 Jun 1912 Died: 17 Nov 1994) married Rosie Marie Adkins (Born: 30 Jan 1921 Died: 11 October 2004). They were married January 8, 1939 in Campbell Co, TN. They divorced in late 1959 and Virgil moved back to TN. Dad (Winston) never heard from him again. We have no pictures. My Grandmother destroyed all pictures following the divorce, so I have no idea what any of my ancestors looked like on the Wilson side. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am a descendant of Adam Hatmaker of New York , who I believe was the son of a Melchoir and brother of another Melchoir.  Adam went north from Philadelpha when the others went south.  I had always assumed that our last name was a translation of the German version of “one who makes hats.”  But I believe that your books state that our family were in the barge trade in the upper Rhine .  Did “Huth” mean something related to barges?

I am the oldest daughter of  the late Sammy Dale Hatmaker.
Granddaughter of Mirmi and Mary Jo Hatmaker.

My father is HC Hatmaker (that's his full name, the H&C aren't initials). My uncle is Bob Hatmaker. They're the sons of Harry Charles Hatmaker who was married to Jayetta Walker. She was the daughter of my great grandfather Thomas Jefferson Walker.
 
As I understand it, for work-related reasons, my grandfather (Harry Charles) moved out to Washington state with his brother James Hatmaker, and this is where my father was born. Harry and James had three other brothers (David, Robert & Claude) and a sister Mary. I believe their father was named Usher Hatmaker, but my father isn't sure of the exact name. At some point, my grandfather skipped out on grandma and moved to California where he produced two or three more Hatmakers. Seems like there's a lot more Hatmakers running around than I ever would've known about while growing up.
 
My grandmother, Jayetta Walker, had a sister Christina who married a Charles Keck. They all lived in Kokomo, Indiana for a time. That's where my sister, Monica, and I were born. In addition to the Keck angle, I understand there are some Sharps and Andersons in the family history too. It's clear my family all came from around the Campbell county. I remember going to my great grandfather Walker's funeral when I was five and seeing the Smokies and the Cumberland Gap for the first time.
 
According to my father, grandma Jayetta has some of the exact same pictures that were in the second "Shadows" book. Seeing pictures of my father when he was younger, it's clear that we're closely related to those in the pictures. I wouldn't know how to trace the lines of descent, though. Unfortunately, the last time I was in Alabama, I missed on the opportunity to have Grandma Jay put names to all the faces.
 
Myself, after growing up a Hoosier, then living in Florida for a long time, I now live in Montreal. I'm married to a French Canadian, Violette Dessureault, and we have a 1 year-old daughter named Liane. Many thanks for all the effort that's been put into this site. I look forward to reading the third book soon.

My brother saw your website and told me about it.  It’s awesome!  I’ve looked through it but was unable to locate anything pertaining to my family background and was wondering if you have any information.  My grandfather’s name is Marcellus Charles Hatmaker and he was married to Lettie Julia Ball.   Marcellus’ parents were John Hatmaker and Caroline Hatmaker and Lettie’s parents were James Ball and Cecelia Ball.

 Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

Your ancestors came to Philadelphia from Baden-Duerlach Germany in 1738.  Your branch went to the piedmont of NC, and then to Tennessee.  From there, your branch removed to the Northwest.
 
Your line seems to be:
 
JSarah Hatmaker, Ack Neal hatmaker, Ira Leo Hatmaker, John Henderson Hatmaker, James Isaih Hatmaker, Daniel Hatmaker, George "Tankman" Hatmaker, Francis Hatmaker, Johann Melchior Huthmacher, Melchior Huthmacher, etc.

 


Comments:

My Grandfather is Ira Hatmaker which is all the family I know.  I know that Hatmakers in this part of the states are very distant. I'm related to every single Hatmaker in the valley but only know two or three and there's probably 20 or more.  Just interested about the ancestry and heritage.

We have done extensive research on your line, but we did not include it in book because the middle initial of William was unclear.
 
Usher Campbell was the son of William R Hatmaker (also recorded as  William P, or T. Hatmaker) and Mary E. Wilson (The 1920 census clearly notes an "R" as William's middle initial).
 
In the 1900 census Usher is living with William R. Hatmaker and his wife, Elen C. Hatmaker.  William R. is 47 years old but has been married to Elen only 17 years. 
Usher is 18 years old, so it appears that this is William's second marriage and that his first wife, Mary, died a year or so before William married Elen.  Probably  during the birth of Usher.
 
Now, here's what we believe: 
 
Mary E. Usher was born about1846 in Campbell County, TN to David Usher (born NC) and Elizabeth Riggs (born VA).  She married a Wilson, and her Wilson husband evidently died before she married William R, Hatmaker.  During or after the birth of Usher Campbell, she died.  William R. subsequently married Elen C. (You might remember that the Riggs families were very close to the Hatmakers in NC--Malachi served with a Riggs in the Revolution, and Riggs wrote in support of Molly Hatmaker's  pension claim).
 
This explains the "Usher."  As far as the middle name Campbell, Claud, etc., it was not unusual for families during that period to name their sons for military, political, esteemed friends, etc.  Campbell was not only the county name but an esteemed family in all of Tennessee--one Campbell commanded the 24th U.S. in which Old Jacob was a soldier during the War of 1812.  Campbell was killed in battle (See Shadows Over Us II).
 
As far as Claude and Carl, they were probably just family names, or popular names of the period. 
 
At any rate, all indications are that William R. Hatmaker was a son of Old Jacob Hatmaker (War of 1812 veteran), so we believe that your line is Usher Campbell, William R., Old Jacob, Francis, Johann Melchior, etc.
 
We have also looked at the "stature" of several Hatmaker branches, and found that many are tall.  This leads us to believe that the original Hatmakers were fairly big people for the time.  Rafting Black Forest timber had to require physical power and probably a tall slim physique with upper body strength.  The branches that married into the Sharp family (and continued marrying Sharps) are smaller people.  So, this is probably where the stature difference is.  One has to also take into account Murrays, Wilsons, Isleys, Native American marriages, etc.

I've got a serious stumper of a question; My great grandfather was Usher Campbell Hatmaker, his son was Usher Claude Hatmaker, his son was Usher Carl, who in turn sired my brother, Usher Carl Jr.  WHAT is up with the tradition of Usher and a middle name starting with "C?"  (They invariably went by their middle names; Claude, Carl, etc.  Again, I don't know why.)  My line absolutely stops at Usher Campbell.  Adopted?  Base-born?  Tradition has it he was a river boat gambler.  He ended up with the land that became "Hatmaker Holler" on Norris Lake, which was eventually taken by the government to form the Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area.  Usher Claude and my father, Usher Carl, ended up living in Sharps Chapel, Tennessee.  Usher Campbell Hatmaker's wife was Eldora Anderson, and I can find little about her either, though I do have some rather old photos.  If anyone can help me unravel any of this, I would be very grateful.  Wonderful web site, and the books are fascinating.

 Comments:

I am the great- great-granddaughter of Caswell & Elizabeth Rains.  Caswell Rains was a Civil War veteran, having fought on the side of the North, loosing an eye in battle probably in the Knoxville area.  He donated the land on which the first schoolhouse was built in Campbell County, Tennessee.  It was a two-room school named Rains Grove in honor of him.  The grove part was suggested by the grove of huge beechnut trees that shaded the rough terrain on which the school was built.

 

Caswell is the related via marriage to the Hatmakers, but I am stuck as to how.  Can anyone help me with this?  

 

Thanks!

Huthmacher means Hatmaker in Germany, so I'm sure were related somehow in the old country!

I'm the son of Francis Howard Hatmaker Jr., son of Francis Howard Hatmaker Sr., son of Kelly (Kelley) Francis Hatmaker, son of Lewis Hatmaker, son of William L. Hatmaker, son of George "Tankman" Hatmaker, son of Francis Hatmaker, son of Melchior Huthmacher, Jr., son of Melchior Huthmacher, Sr. ... did I get it right?


Comments

I would imagine that the name Huthmaker is coincidental with that of Hatmaker (meaning "maker of hats", in Germany). We are doubtless related some way. Where do you live? We do have a "Family Tree" if you are interested in looking into that. Regards, Linda Huthmaker

I will buy your book, but I wanted to ask if you knew this: I am researching a confederate soldier of 65th Georgia who was captured at Jacksboro where he was left behind while ill. He was captured Aug 28, 1863 at Jacksboro and ended up in prison at Camp Douglas. Now on the Tennessee Civil War website it says: "On August 28, the regiment (meaning 1st East Tennessee Mounted Infantry) captured 48 Confederates at Jacksboro, Tennessee." I am trying to find out two things: the source for that comment about the capture of 48 confederates at Jacksboro on that day and if there is anyway of tracing how they were taken from Jacksboro to Chicago where Camp Douglas is - I assume by rail, but I thought there might be reports. Thanks for your time and help, DeEtta Demaratus

Your book has challenged me to be faithful to Him and walk each day so that all aspects of my life are "compatible with eternity in the light". Thanks for all your encouragement!

I thank God for you Grace. I believe we walk in purpose. No mater what. In your gentle and noninvasive manner, you touched my heart and soul today. The journey that began with a seizure while holding my precious son, hospitalization, and brain surgery has been a wonderful experience. I'm thankful for this experience - pain comes along at times, but the good out ways the bad. Your ability to listen, allow for vulnerability, and reflect back my emotion and hurt, allowed me to move forward today. I'm actually enjoying this journey through the unknown. The Dean of Students at Bethany Bible College used to challenge me daily to expand by boundaries. I have always tried to stretch myself, and now, I am being stretched beyond my ability to stretch myself, and it's wonderful. Thanks for helping adjust to today's stretching dear friend.

God Bless, John

I'm looking for relatives. My father is David K. Hatmaker married to Shirley N. Phillips. My grandfather was James M. Hatmaker from Briceville, TN married to Bertie Roberts, he was killed in a coal mine in 1948. My father has two sisters, Linda Hatmaker and Nancy Hatmaker. My father is now living in Toledo, Ohio with the rest of the family still living in Briceville and Lake City, TN. Any information you can share would be great!!!

The "Shadows Over Us" books are great! Anyone who hasn't seen them yet, should definitely take a look.

I am descended from the House of Adam Hatmaker, who went to western New York state and farmed after emigrating in the mid-1700's. Adam was young Melchoir's brother, I am told. My great great grandfather was Dr. John Hatmaker of Penn Yan, NY, my great grandfather was David F., my grandfather was Benjamin Joy and my father was Paul Castleton. I would be especially glad to hear from any cousins who descended from the above.

Hi, I am actually looking for Terri Hatmaker Wessinger. She was looking for my brother and I on a genealogy website in 2000, however, the email address is no longer valid. My father was Roger Dale Hatmaker he passed away in Cobb county Georgia several years ago. If anyone has any information I would love to hear.


Comments

Just like to visit the site every so often to see if I've missed anything. For those that may be interested, I've published a book "Forgotten Yankees of East Tennessee." It covers the 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment, aka, 1st East Tennessee Mounted Infantry, USA, and William Henry "Red Bill" Hatmaker. It can be purchased at Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com, 1stBooks.com. The book is about 80-85% history and the rest my imagination.

WOW! There's a lot of us huh?

This website is great. I recently moved to SC from Texas, originally from Mich. fathers family from Kentucky/Tenn. Just found out about a dedication ceremony occurring tomorrow to place improved headstones at my great grandparents (maternal side) graves. My grandmother was Margaret White. So I'm driving up to my uncles house in Williamsburg, Ky. today after work so I can go with him tomorrow. The dedication is in Tenn. I don't know much about my grandmothers side of the family so this sounded like a wonderful experience and opportunity. My uncle Hobert seems to be quite the living historian since he knows everyone around his neck of the world. To those that put such effort toward the website and the book, Thank you. This is very enlightening. Sharon

great info on website

I had no idea there were this many Hatmaker's around. I would love to go back 200 years and see who my ancestors were and what they were like.


Comments

CORRECTION: In a previous announcement, Phillip Jacab Murray was listed as the husband of Mary Ann Moser. His name should read JOHN PHILLIP MURRAY (he had the daughters who married Hatmakers whose descendants might qualify for First Families of Tennessee and/or Sons/Daughters of the American Revolution. John Phillip Murray settled near what is now Murrayville in Campbell County, TN. We are sorry for the confusion.


Comments


Comments

ATTENTION: DESCENDANTS OF ADAM HUTHMACHER/HATMAKER MAY QUALIFY FOR SONS/DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. MANY OF HIS DESCENDANTS REMOVED FROM UPSTATE (MOHAWK VALLEY AREA) NEW YORK TO MICHIGAN AND THEN FARTHER WEST TO CALIFORNIA. ADAM WAS NOT ONLY A REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIER BUT ALSO FOUGHT IN THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR FOR THE BRITISH. HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST IN ALBANY/MONTGOMER/TRYON COUNTY, NY TO HELP SET UP A COMMITTEE OF SAFETY THUS EXPOSING HIMSELF TO TREASONESS ACTIVITIES AGAINST THE BRITISH.


Comments

ATTENTION: THOSE DESCENDANTS OF ANY HATMAKER THAT MARRIED ONE OF PHILLIP JACOB AND MARY ANN MOSER MURRAY'S DAUGHTERS MAY QUALIFY FOR MEMBERSHIP IN FIRST FAMILIES OF TENNESSEE THROUGH JAMES MURRAY. ALSO, YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR SONS OR DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION THROUGH JACOB MOSER (MARY ANN'S GRANDFATHER)WHO0 SERVED IN THE MARYLAND GERMAN DIVISION.

Nice to see a Ancestral surname with a website.

My mother is a Hatmaker from Tennessee and I found this interesting. Thanks for the input.

I enjoyed both of the books "Shadows Over Us". My mother was a Hatmaker from Campbell County. Duncan Hatmaker was her grandfather. There was a lot a people in both books that I remember from my youth.


Comments

Samuel Baird Hatmaker can be found on pages 491 and 543 in Shadows Over Us, Part II. He is also listed on the Hatmaker Map margin as having served as POSTMASTER at BLOCK, TN. His wife is listed as Roxie Belle Lane. More info may be found in the book.


Comments

Hi from a Hatmaker descendant--My grandmother on my mother's side was a Hatmaker, married to Sam Hatmaker of Block Tennessee Mr. Hatmaker worked as an accountant for a coal company back in the 1900's--we think--we are interested in any Hatmaker info from the Tennessee area, of Jacksboro, LaFollette, Caryville--

Hatmaker Hospital and a picture of the postcard are featured on page 648 of "Shadows Over Us, Part II," and romantically as "Hootmocker Hospital" in the novel, "The Kindred Gathering" The old hospital structure is located at 246 E. Main Street in Penn Yan, NY. and it was owned and operated by nurse, Sussannah Hatmaker. It was Penn Yan's very first hospital. If you need more information write to jrhatmaker@greenapple.com


Comments

I recently found an old post card from 1916 with a picture of the Hatmaker Hospital in Penn Yan, New York. My family there knows nothing about its history. A Google search for "Hatmaker Hospital, Penn Yan" brought me to your website. Would you be able to offer a little insight as to what it was?

Thanks,

For those of you researching Caswell Rain(e)s, Shadows Over Us, Part II has several statements made by him. On starts:

"On October 19, 1888 at Little Cove Creek, Campbell County, Tennessee, Caswell Raines makes a statement on behalf of William Hatmaker's pension claim # 468892, before Special Examiner, Perham: 'I am 50 years, occupation farming and my post office address is Careyville, Campbell County, Tennessee. I am not related to William Hatmaker...Hatmaker married my cousin. During the late War, I served as a member of Company A, 1st Tennessee Infantry.........'"


Comments

I have just received info regarding Caswell Rains. I understand he has several statements in your book. I would be very interested in the purchase of your book in the near future. The Caswell Rains I am looking for is from Campbell County Tenn. Civil War Vet. 1st TN infantry. Wife named Elizabeth. If the location of your Caswell Rains is consistent with mine I am definitely interested in the purchase of your book. Please let me know. Also, are you aware of Lasley, Franklin, James Washington? Thank you for your time.

When I go back to New York, I am going to try to find Adam Hutmacher's head stone! Now that the tale of him being in an Indian massacre has been lifted, he must not be buried in a mass grave somewhere. I am 46 yrs old and my grandmother had far out stories that I believed-it is difficult for me to wipe all of them out. Oh well, I love New York! and I can wait to be back on the soil my ancestors walked. Hi you all!

Richard,

We know nothing about Ortis-Sippenbuch, so I suggest you contact Juergen von der Ehe at jvdEhe@gmx.de Juergen is a genealogist and lives in Pforzheim; he has done a fantastic job for us, and he may be able to help you. He may charge a fee for his services, but it would be well spent if he uncovers something for you.

By the way, do you have any Huthmachers in your files.

Good luck with your search.

The books look very interesting. I know Boots and Delsie Dagley. They are a wealth of information about the community. I have been doing research on our families since 1996, and have been told numerous times, "Ask Boots Dagley, he knows". Thank you for your contribution to history. I hope to do the same some day.

I must say that I stumbled onto this site. I am extremely happy to see so many people with my last name. I must explain that I have never in my life met another Hatmaker other than my father and my grandfather (who passed when I was 2 yrs old). I do not have a relationship with my father and therefore, I am on my own finding out about who I am...this site has brought tears to my eyes. THANK YOU!

During Thanksgiving, I had the chance to look through Part II. It is a very comprehensive and interesting history. Grace Hatmaker (Jerry's sister) was my grandmother. My father, Earl, is named after Stud Hatmaker. I remember my granny's sisters, Belle, Johnnie and Sid, and I have heard many stories about Polly, Floss, Buck, et al. I learned a lot about the family that I did not know. Good work.

They lived in ------- Tennessee and moved to Orlando, FL where both grandparents died in the 1980s. I did not get the chance to know them.

I am truly amazed with this site. I am a descendant of John Bullock and Elizabeth Hatmaker. Their daughter Nancy Arminda married first to Aaron Hatmaker (had two sons before the death of Aaron) and then married to Isaac Thomas Lindsay. I have many wonderful Hatmaker cousins that are directly descended from these listed above. It is true that if you dig deep enough and long enough in any given locality that you will find a connection to almost every family that homesteaded that area. A 1st or 7th Cousin is indeed a cousin and what a great place to find them on here. Thanks!! Debbie

Hi Marianna,

We were wondering if you know if your Hutmachers came from the US originally. There were several Hutmachers who settled in the Great Plains of North America (Dakota Territory).

We have also found Hutmachers in Canada. We believe at least one or two removed from Dakota Territory to Canada--cheap and better land. Yours may have been Germans from Russia. During the 18th and 19th Century Catherine the Great and Czar Alexander encouraged Germans, especially those from Wuerttemberg to relocate to the Steppes of Russia. After a few generations they once again relocated, this time to North America.

What do you know of Jacob?

Your Julia A. Hatmaker who married James Ballard was the daughter of Jacob (Jacob SR in the book) and Barbara Murray Hatmaker. She was a sister to Malone Hatmaker, who is my great grandfather. We have very little on Julia and James. Can you bring the family up to date?

I saw his granddaughter (Rose daughter of Cora Hatmaker) in Tennessee this summer in her late 80s. She gave me a hand sown blanket, "it's a beauty".

I'm impressed at the time and research it must have taken to search and assemble so much family data. Up until 10 years ago, I thought the family of "Huthmaker" was limited to our immediate clan. I was very surprised and have enjoyed being able to contribute information that you can use.
