Another Ancestor Chart

This is a chart of my ancestors. The lines only go back to an immigrant ancestor. I can go farther back with some of these ancestors but I just don't have the space. I don't know the immigrant ancestor on some of these lines.

Immigrant ancestors' names are italicized.

Keep in mind that I subscribe to The Way-I-Do-Genealogy-Makes-Real-Genealogists-Spin-In-Their-Graves School of Genealogical Research. Though I am pretty confident in what I've learned about my family tree back to about the 1830s or so, much before that has been, um, borrowed.

A little bit more information about my immigrant ancestors is here.

1. These ancestors are thought to be immigrant ancestors but no records of their immigration can be found.
2. Sources have her born in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, in 1730. Her parents must certainly have been immigrants.
3. If Leonhardt's (Leonhard Weissner) father was Johann Michael Wiesner (many spellings for Wiesner), then he would have come to America as a child.
4. If Rosina's father was Erhardt Schick, then she would have come to America as a child.
5. Hannah Howell may have emigrated from Berkeley, Gloucestershire, England, as a child though most sources say she was born in Pennsylvania at a very early date (about 1666). She is the daughter of Thomas Howell who may have come to America from Berkeley in 1683.
6. If Johann Christian's father was Johann Michael Ittich/Itig who settled around Schoharie, New York, then the family is from Landshausen in the Kraichgau region of Baden.
7. Apparently, there is no evidence of Andreas Müller being an immigrant, but one can't help think that his parents were. His parents' names are unknown.
8. Charles Hickman seems to have been an immigrant. A descendant says he was from Holland, but it may be that he was the son of Andreas Heckman of Wolfersweiler in the Saarland. Andreas immigrated in 1742. Charles was born about 1735.
9. Catharina's surname was originally Vieillard (various spellings). She was a Huguenot descendant.
10. Anna Barbara LeFevre may have been a daughter or granddaughter of Isaac LeFevre and Catherine Ferree.
11. There is no record of Barbara's father's (Alexander Heinrich Brandenburg) immigration to America. Men who are thought to be his brothers came from Niederhattert and Winkelbach. These towns are only two or three kilometers apart. They were in the Grafschaft (county) of Sayn-Hachenburg when they left in the 1750s. Later these became a part of Nassau.
12. Johan Philip Haman as Frederick Howman's father has not been established through civil or religious records. Paternity has been assumed through DNA tests. Haman could conceivably be an uncle or grandfather. Circumstantially, it seems likely that he is his father.
13. Kürnbach was in the Württembergisch-Hessisch Kondominium when Haman emigrated. It is now in the state of Baden-Württemberg.
14. Johan Philip Haman married a Margareth(a) Bromm in Kürnbach.
15. This line is weakly documented, and Isaac Hibbs's ancestry has always been problematic for me and others. Some think he is a descendant of a William Hibbs, but it's been difficult to fit him into the family tree. Some now think he was the husband of an Elizabeth Cuppy and not Elizabeth Roberts (daughter of John Roberts).
16. That Barbara comes from Ireland is based only on a reconstruction of the 1820 Census of Green Twp., Harrison Co., Ohio. Another source says she's from Pennsylvania. This seems more likely. If the reconstruction is accurate, Barbara's maiden name may have been Black. Next to her in the reconstruction is a James Black from Ireland.
17. John Cuppy (Junior; Elizabeth Cuppy's brother) was 99 or 100 years old when someone wrote down some of his biography. He said that his mother's name was Devore, but circumstantial evidence suggests it was Parker. A summary of the problem is here.
18. Some researchers have her name as Felger. There are several Felgers near her in West Salem Cemetery (Wayne County, Ohio). Her father may have been a Henry Felger, but I can't find her in any lists of his children. Some have identified her father as an Adam Felger. This may be, but this Adam is not the Adam near her in West Salem Cemetery. Given the dates on the stone, he may be a younger brother.
19. Abraham Herr came to America as a child with his parents—Rev. Christian Herr and Anna Barr/Bar/Bär—and other Mennonites. Abraham's grandfather was Bishop Hans Herr from Zürich, Switzerland (according to his wiki, but some reseachers have his birthplace in Baden, Canton Aargau, Switzerland). Because Mennonites were persecuted during this period, they had to move around. Some ended up in the Palatinate for a few years so Abraham may have been born in the Palatinate.
20. Many have Maria Mertz's father as Heinrich Mertz, but in his book Johann Adam and Anna Maria (Mertz) Zehner Family of Berks and Schuylkill Counties, Pennsylvania William J. Zehner believes her father was Johann Peter Mertz.
21. I no longer believe that Sarah Ann was the daughter of Benjamin Mattox. I think her father had the surname Worline. Benjamin and Lydia's other children would then be half-siblings to Sarah Ann. Benjamin was the son of Christopher Mattox and Christi(a)na Hinds/Heintz. Christopher's family tree cannot reliably be traced any further back. Christiana's can be easily found on various sites. I think Lydia Boston may be connected to the Bastians of Woodsboro, Maryland.
22. Rebecca Hibbs Harden Hosterman's pedigree has always been problematic. Some are not convinced that her parents are Isaac Hibbs and Mary Lucas. I don't have a problem with this, but identifying her grandparents, as well as her great-grandparents, is also difficult. There is simply much speculation involved here. See notes 15 and 17 above.
23. When Georg Andreas emigrated with his parents and siblings, Nesselbach was in the County of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. Later the county was made a principality. In the early 19th century it was in Württemberg. Today, Nesselbach is simply a section of the small city of Langenburg, Baden-Württemberg. Some sources say Georg Andreas emigrated from Bächlingen. It too is now a section of Langenburg.
24. I think Esther Brubaker (1772-1848) may have been the daughter of a John Brubaker and a woman whose maiden name was Oberholtzer, but I don't have a shred of evidence to back that up. If she was his daughter, she would be a granddaughter of a Hans Jacob/John Jacob Bruppacher who emigrated from Ibersheim in the Palatinate. The family was Mennonite and earlier migrated from Switzerland due to the religious persecution of Anabaptists.
25. Elisabetha's name actually shows up as "Elizabetha Markreta Waagener".
26. Some think that Sophia's maiden name was "Serier".
