Valeri Jean Shafer
Hi, there! Hatfield is my MATERNAL line, but I am hoping to still find help. Many people are claiming that my line connects with the Hatfield/McCoy line, but I do not see how this is possible. My line, as I believe it to be, is below:
Matthias Hatfield m Mariken Melijn (father was Cornelius Melijn, Patroon of Staten Island via DWI Co.)
Abraham Hatfield, Sr. m Phoebe Ogden
Abraham Hatfield, Jr. m Margaret Winans*
David Hatfield, Sr. m Susanna Clark
David Hatfield, Jr. m1 Sarah Ross m2 Rachael Crane
Mary Hatfield m Benjamin PERRY
David Perry m Anna Maria Wilson
Oliver Hazard Perry m Margaret Roe
Lillian May Perry m Andrew ATTLESEY
Mildred Margaret Attlesey m Rayond VALLETTE
Barbara Vallette m David SHAFER
Valeri Jean Shafer (me)
*Here's my question--Many people say Abraham Hatfield and Margaret Winans somehow emigrated from Rahway, NJ to Virginia and began a Hatfield (of Hatfield/McCoy infamy) line. I have NO evidence of this. Can anyone confirm or deny with DNA certainty that they do not connect?
Finally, anyone who has any additional info or corrections, kindly contact!
