Dear Cousins,
    Just noticed your Huffman lineage from Germany to America.
    I descend from MARY ANN HUFFMAN & John King to Daniel 
Roseberry King & Mary Matilda Barnhart, My Grandparents.
    Raymond Daniel King (My father) married Ruth Cleona Bane. He had 13 
brothers & sisters.
    I noticed a discrepancy between your data & Mine. Your data has William T. 
King married to a Mertie Hennen, Mertie Irene Hennen, and Myrtle Malloy 
(these last three are NOT the same person) plus Tharp, Lucy Farmer, and 
a Henderson. Your William was born 1867-1941. I also have a William T. King 
but do not have wives or death dates.
    Daniel Roseberry King had a brother "Thomas" b: May 8,1880-d:1940.
married a Mertie ?, Myrtle Malloy, and Mertie Irene Hamilton. He had three 
wives, the last one being about 14 yrs old when he, at 60 yrs., married her. 
{he was a "ladies" man}. Buried in Enon between his two wives, who died 
befor him. (Mertie ? & Myrtle Malloy). It was rumored that before he 
died, he picked a Suitor for his last wife, Mertie Irene. Possibly 
"William?? DeCampWilliam". Not verified though.
    I have never seen the name "Thomas" anywhere but have seen William T. 
several places. Thomas King owned a market place near Claysville, Pa. 
where several of my uncles worked. Meat? & vegetables. A daughter of 
Mertie Irene swears by the above dates, told to my sister years ago. Lost 
contact with her & don't know how to reach her.
   I have been searching high & low for information on "Uncle Tom's" real 
name and on William T.'s middle name. Thinking that they might be the 
same person, plus the rest of Daniel's siblings. My uncles insist that 
Thomas is a FULL brother to Daniel, where William is a Half-brother.
   I would appreciate any help you can give me...If you need any information on 
Daniel & Mary's descendants, please let me know.
                                      Thanks.        Kenneth King

  I am not Entirely Positive that what I told you was entirely TRUE. 
I only know what I am told by my Family, just as others are told by their 
Families. I wanted to point out the discrepancies so we could be aware
  of other possibilities and be on the lookout for the truth...I do not 
have ICQ. My wife may have, I don't know what it is. Her e-mail 
[]. Our computors are 2 feet apart-
  The Barnhart reunion went fine.  Mostly relatives (Young) who are not 
into geneology. I have met a few who are into family matters and have some
leads. I met Louise Abbereg, wife of Keith Barnhart who has much knowledge.
  Also on the net in contact with others, searching & sharing. ----.
  Will keep in contact.           Thanks    Kenneth King

 Hi Cousin Ken,
 The info at the site is unproven to me and was acquired from a ged file
on Ancestry, so there could and probably are lots of mistakes. I can 
repair the mistakes, with your permission and add the sources, for 
better info. I will not put on any living members in an outline.  
Maybe with your help I can clear them up. Do you have the free AOL Instant 
Message that we can chat with or maybe ICQ? Thanks for contacting 
us. Hope to hear from you soon about getting my discrepencies fixed.
 Your Cousin Helen.

Land. (poss Springhill or Aleppo Twp.- Windy Gap area which has Barnhart land

     Looks good. Not sure how you are going to print it up. Based on 
Crell's Information, My Previous Information is suspect. IE: 3 wives,
Mertie, Myrtle Malloy & Mertie Irene Hamilton.  Also I had a TYPO...
"Myrtle Irene King D/O Myrtle Bell Malloy should have been 
"Mertie Irene King" (I am not a good typist").  I can Vividly remember 
isolated bits of mental pictures of Hamilton's Barn, front of house and 
the player piano. I stole a toy Metal car & got a whooping for it.  
DeCamps had a trailer at one point. When Mertie Irene got married.
  My family attended wedding & reception..(At least I think it was 
her). one of the parents had a nice house. I am waiting for Crell's 
wife Mary Ann to talk to Crell (Yell at him), and sipher more information. 
There is very little written anywhere & few people who remember Thomas 
"Tom" King. Thanks for helping. You have my permission to publish, 
send, distribute or file 13, this information. I cannot verify Its 
accuracy nor dispute it either.                                Kenneth King Back
