A Genealogical History of the Hunsicker Family (Classic Reprint)

Henry A Hunsicker

Excerpt from A Genealogical History of the Hunsicker Family It was our purpose originally to include in our book the entire family of the progenitor Valentine Hunsicker, who by his first marriage had two children, Elizabeth and Samuel, and by his second marriage seven children, Valentine, Jacob, Isaac, Sara, Catherine, Abraham, and Henry but, con fronted by the magnitude of the labor involved in the collection of all the names, dates of births, of marriages, and of deaths of the many descendants of this numerous family, we concluded (at our time of life) to confine our selves to the compilation of the names belonging to the Fifth Branch only of our grandfather Henry Hunsicker (second generation), youngest son of the progenitor Valentine Hunsicker (first generation). Apparent indifference on the part of some relatives to respond to inquiries directed to them for information has prevented as complete a list of all the names belonging to our branch as we desired. Where names and dates do not appear, it is from no fault of ours. In the preparation of our book the aim has been not merely to furnish names and a brief history of our progenitor and sketches of some of the more prominent of his descendants, but rather to stir up a spirit of becoming pride in his posterity to emulate the worth and character of honored ancestors.
