We need more Hennigan/Henigan descendants to submit for DNA Test. So far we have one individual from John C. Henigan and first wife Mary unk., and 1 individual from John C. Henigan and second spouse Sirenia Coleman Henigan. Another test is pending on a descendant of James Manuel Hennigan and Millie Coleman Hennigan. We also have a descendant from Samuel Hennigan and Mary Gore Hennigan tested by another Company and can match him through Y-Search. We need a descendant of Michael/Mitchell Hennigan and Nancy Coleman Hennigan, Ambrose Hennigan and Sarah Mosely Hennigan, and Hiram Hennigan and Rachel Honeycutt Hennigan. These are the sons of Michael D. Hennigan and Amy Brumbelow Hennigan from NC to La. Michael and Amy are buried in Hennigan Cemetery in Beauregard Parish La. Michaels tombstone has name Michel J. Hennigan which shows at death he reverted back to what i suspect is Johann Michel Hennigan before name change from Johann Michel Henninger. A paper trail verifies he was Michael Henninger in Mecklenberg NC, and a possible/most likely son of Michel Henninger born Pa. or Va. and find in Fincastle(later Montgomery)County Va. He is found on same documents appearing with signature next to Conrad Henninger in Va. Michael could be the son of the "original immigrant" Johann Michael Henninger Sr.(although Johann Michael Henninger Jr. leaves will and is presumed deceased), son of Conrad since when Conrad goes to Orphans Court to dispute his sister(Maria Rosina) and husbands(Martin Kinkinger) handling of late fathers estate, they remind court that Michael Henninger has not yet paid to estate what he owes. Since Michael Henninger Jr. has presumed to be dead for 5 years, would they be referring to a son of Conrad? Regardless if son or grandson of Johann Michael Henninger Sr., we know DNA of Hennigan/Henigan participants is a match to the only Henninger that has been DNA tested, a descendant of Martin Henninger, brother to "original immigrant".
We need more Henningers and Hennigans of all spellings to test DNA to get a better feeling how all of us tie into this family.
