    We spent years trying to trace back past a Harvey Hinkle around 1812 in Virginia and kept failing. About a year ago, my uncle found a woman from another branch who managed to do so. Her tree intertwined with ours somewhere along the line and managed to trace is back to the Reverend Anthony Jacob. But never in my life would I had expected to see this site. This is truly amazing. Just when I thought our family was in danger of extinction (many untimely deaths took some anc store out before they could help the tree grow) I find this. Our dwindling branch is but a twig amongst a large thriving tree spread all over. I am truly amazed to find this and can’t find the proper words to explain how truly awesome it is to see this website and hope to somehow, someway meet you all.

    • Your comment really made my day! I am the one that started the website back in 2014 and to date we have had almost 50,000 views. I went through almost the same thing as you did, I could not find much about the Henckel side of my family either, although I was lucky because my father had left me The Henckel Genealogy by Junkin and Junkin. I contacted a local genealogist and he had heard of the Henckel Family Association because his wife was a decendant of the Henckel family. He said he could never find it, so I went on a hunt on-line to find it, to help me with my research. After 6 months I found the Association by contacting another genealogist, who lived in Oregon, who I read about on-line. I contacted her and she directed me to the President of the Association and I signed up as a member and attended my first reunion in 2012. After attending, I decided to do this website to help Henckel descendants to find help in tracing their roots. The website has been running since 2014 and has helped many people like yourself connect with members of their extended families. I hope you will become a member because we need to keep the Association going for another 100 years. Thank you for making my day. Richard Henkel, President – “The Henckel Family Association”

  4. Very interesting Henckel Family Tree! I too have Henckel’s on two sides of my family tree. My Great Grandfather and Grandmother were 2nd cousins. You obviously are a Branch V on both sides as I am.

    Hope you will join our “Association” and be able to attend our 300th Anniversary, 2017 Reunion in Pennsylvania where all our Branches come together.

        Also, my first cousin, Irv Magri (his mom, June Parker Magri, and my dad, Guy Allen Parker, Jr. were siblings) is very interested and excited to come. He is not as computer savvy, but I will get him on this site!!!

    Hi Hinkles! Well, I believe I have figured out how I am related… twice! Gotta love those inter-marrying relations!

    Here is the first way:
    Anthony Jacob Henckel Reverend (1668 – 1728) – 7th great-grandfather

    Johann Justus Henckel Sr. (1706 – 1778) – 6th Great Grandfather
    son of Anthony Jacob Henckel Reverend

    Jacob Anthony Henkel (1733 – 1779) – 5th Grat Grandfather
    son of Johann Justus Henckel Sr.

    Moses Henkle (1757 – 1827) – 4th Great Grandfather %%%%%%%%%
    son of Jacob Anthony Henkel
    ****************************************************** Here is where it gets interesting!

    Sampson Henkle (1801 – 1852) – 3rd Great Grandfather
    son of Moses Henkle

    Amelia Fleming Hinkle (1833 – 1947) – Great, Great Grandmother
    daughter of Sampson Henkle

    Charles Marion Parker (1866 – 1962) – Great Grandfather
    son of Amelia Fleming Hinkle

    Guy Allen Parker (1895 – 1977) – Grandfather
    son of Charles Marion Parker

    Guy Allen Parker Jr (1926 – 2002) – Father
    son of Guy Allen Parker

    Georgiene Marie “Gigi” Parker Hudnall —————————-Me!
    You are the daughter of Guy Allen Parker Jr

    But then there is also this:
    *************************************************************************
    Moses Henkle (1757 – 1827) – 5th Great Grandfather %%%%%%%%%%%%
    son of Jacob Anthony Henkel

    Jesse (Col.) Hinkle (1780 – 1821) – 4th great-grandfather
    son of Moses Henkle

    Margaret Ann Hinkle (1803 – 1894) – 3rd Great Grandmother
    daughter of Jesse (Col.) Hinkle

    Amelia Fleming Hinkle (1833 – 1947) – Great, Great Grandmother
    daughter of Margaret Ann Hinkle

    Charles Marion Parker (1866 – 1962) – Great Grandfather
    son of Amelia Fleming Hinkle

    Guy Allen Parker (1895 – 1977) – Grandfather
    son of Charles Marion Parker

    Guy Allen Parker Jr (1926 – 2002) – Father
    son of Guy Allen Parker

    Georgiene Marie “Gigi” Parker Hudnall ——————————Me again!
    You are the daughter of Guy Allen Parker Jr

    It appears that Margaret Ann Hinkle (1803-1894) married her father’s younger brother, Sampson Hinkle (her Uncle!). So Rev, Anthony Jacob Hinkle is both my 7th AND 8th Great-Grandfather! I guess that means I am definitely part of the family!!!

    I want to come to the big reunion next year! So happy to find you all!

    John Hinkle 1773-1832 buried in Hall GA is as far back as I have been able to trace my Hinkle line. Recently I found a DNA match to a person who has a William Hinkle born ca 1760 in their line, but we have no common ancestors. I am wondering if William Hinkle could be a brother of John Hinkle. This is the first clue I have gotten regarding my Hinkle line. One other thing about William Hinkle, he supposedly came from Ireland. I know there were some Germans who emigrated to Ireland at one point, but they did not assimilate and kept their German culture. Thanks for any help.

  8. Lonnie R. Totten said:

    Hello, I am from the Georg Rudolphus Henckel branch. The family that moved to Frederick Co., MD. His granddaughter Anna Margreth married Casper Rine, whose son William Rine moved to Coshocton Co., Ohio about 1815. I have seen some sites that say our ancestor Anna Eulala (Dentzer) Henckel was a descendant of Martin Luther through her mother’s line, the Wagner family. Can anyone confirm or deny? Our family has many branches here in Knox and Coshocton Counties in Ohio, Glad to be part of the Henckel (Hinkle) family.
    Mr. Lonnie R. Totten

  9. Charleta Beebe Affeldt said:

    Yes, I am a interested in updating the lineage of my family, to the Henckel /Henkel/Hinkle family. I have Justus Henckel Sr. as one of my Revolutionary Ancestors in DAR. He is my 5th great grandparent. His daughter, Mary Magdalena Henckle and John Skidmore are my 4th great grandparents. My parents and I are listed in, The Henckel Genealogy by William Sumner Junkin and Minnie Wyatt Junkin.

  10. Jennifer Smith said:

    Glad I found this site. Anthony Henckel is the 11th great grandparent to my grandmother, Helen Marie Felix Smith(my father’s mother). Catharine Hinkle is her 3rd great grandparent. And of course John Justus Henkel is her 4th grandparent. John Justus Henkel lived in Manheim township. I live in Hanover, Pa. Manheim is only few minuters away from me. John is buried the same place where my grandmother was buried at Mt.Olivet

    Wow, this is amazing! I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii. While dabbling in family history for years I was always more interested in my fathers side of the family (the Hawaiian side). I can’t believe everything I’ve found since looking into my mothers side. She’s from California but once I clicked on her grandfather everything started branching out by itself. I’m related to a Sarah Hinkle who’s great grandfather was a Anthony Jacob Henckle. I’ve put so much time and effort into my dads side of the family and it’s still looks pretty lame lol.
    It looks like an entire group of Angels did my moms side for me:) I’m feeling very blessed right now, mahalo to anyone and everyone who contributed to all this information. You rock!!!

  12. We all look forward to meeting you and other members of your family!! Richard

  13. Richard Alan Smith – Being a direct descendant of George Rudolph Henckel makes you a Branch IV Henckel. We really need new Branch IV members in the Henckel Family Association. Noticed that George and his wife lived around Frederick, MD. Their 7 children grew up there and married and settled in the area. It would be a great spot for a Henckel Family Reunion in the future! Please consider becoming a member of our Association. Richard Henkel

    • Richard Alan Smith said:

      Thank you for your information. My Father, Lt. Colonel Harold Henkel Smith was a past member. I think my Sister, Sharon Smith Hayes and her Husband, Robert D. Hayes are current members, who live in California, Maryland. Also, I will send this information to my Brothers, Charles Gregory Smith and Harold Henkel Smith, Jr., as well as, his Son, Harold Henkel Smith III. I will more than likely join. Again, Thank you Richard Henkel.

  14. Any knowledge of descendants of this Hinkle family making it to New Mexico? My Grandfather was Warren Hinkle. Born 1911 in East Grand Plains, NM and passed away 1987 in Roswell, NM.

    • Hi TC Hinkle Here (look at the post listed above yours). Am in los Indios TX now. Am retired and traveling now. Planning on being in Rowell NM from 04/15/15 through 05/15/15. feel free to drop me a line.

    We are hoping someone can help us….How can we find the real image of the Henckel coat of arms? My grandfather had several very old journals and one of the journals had the crest in it. From my understanding these journals were passed down from generations in the family, my aunt the youngest of his children received them after the passing of my grandfather. However, unfortunately, she passed 4 yrs ago unexpectedly and her two sons are going through her items to try to locate them. We will take a trip east of TN in a few months (where she moved to several yrs ago) to help locate them. Several family members – uncles, aunts, mom, dad, cousins, etc. have seen and read some of the old journals over the years We are Hinkles located currently in Tennessee and have a lineage to the ancestor of Anthony Jacob Henckel. Currently until we locate the journals we were trying to find a copy of the original crest that is in the old journals that have been missed placed. If we see the image I was told some of the family can confirm if it was the one in our journals. We appreciated any information that you can provide and help us with. As same as you, we are devoted to preserving the heritage of our family, I’m the second youngest generation currently and want to carry the history of the stories told to me throughout my life and info down to my children. My name is Angela.

    • I Live in Ohio and my father was from The Riverton WV. The Germany Valley area. Have researched the family and tracked my family back to Ludwig Henckel 1535. I really do not think we have a cost of arms. The ones I have found are spelled.
      “Henckel von Donnersmarck” and “Henkel” (original spelling From what I can find out) You can find the history of these coats of arms on line, and even though we may be related to the people who have these ( Distantly). It Looks like Neither Ludwig Henckel or his decendents have a Coat of arms. But If I am wrong anyone Please feel free to message me and let me know. Would Love to have a Family Coat of arms!

      • nedrabrill said:

        TC, the proven ancestry of the Rev AJH only goes back to Matthaus, grandfather of Rev. AJH. The most recent research with documentation was published in the Henckel Genealogical Bulletin, Vol 42, Spring 2011. We most likely are not descended from the Henckel von Donnersmarck from Hungary, a Catholic priest.

    • Richard Alan Smith said:

      My Father was Lt. Colonel Harold Henkel Smith, USA, retired (1918-2002). His Mother was Anna Louise Henkel (1892-1978). Her Father was Daniel Grove Henkel (Henkle) (1844-1906). His Father was John Troxel Henkel (Henkle) (1810-1882). His Father was John Henkle (Hinkel) (1765-?). My name is Richard Alan Smith the youngest of four siblings. I have a Henkel Coat of Arms presently hanging on the wall that was my Father’s and hung in my Grand Mother’s house, Anna Louise Henkel Smith in Romney, WV. I can make a photo copy of it at Staples and send it by mail. My flatbed scanner no longer works because HP no longer makes the software. I am not certain of the origin but it is hand lettered.

      • Richard Alan Smith said:

        I found some more information about the above post of mine. Daniel Grove Henkel was married to Eugenia Gertrude Cavalier. Captain John Troxell Henkel was married to Mary Virginia Swagler. John Henkel was married to Barbara Troxell. His Father was George Rudolph Henkel and his wife was Elizabeth Grove. His Father was Jacob Anthony Henkel (Henckel).
