    Hi Enid! Great to hear from you, and it’s a wonderful family picture 🙂 It’s terrific that your family holds such a well-attended reunion.

    I learned a lot working on this article and was happy to discover there is another branch of Hagenbuchs here in the US.

    Hey cousin, Since I was 6 or so, I have been wondering where the middle name of my grandfather, Benjamin Haughabook Kaigler came from. I was able to determine Haughabook was his maternal grandmother’s maiden name, but that was it. Someone apparently wanted us to remember the name. Looking at the map of Saxe-Gotha township, I see a lot of familiar names. We used to own part of Haughabook swamp. And relatives owned a colonial house about where the Hermann Geiger section is, up until the ’80’s. Thank you for solving this mystery. Is there any way I can get in touch with Harriet Imrey?

    • Andrew Hagenbuch Andrew Hagenbuch says:

      Hi Tom! Wonderful to hear your story and I’m glad that this research helped answer your question. The source I found from Harriet mentions an email address of harriet (at) imrey (dot) com. That said, it looks like it is from the early 2000s, so I am not positive it is still working. It’s worth a shot though.

    This information about my deceased husband family line on his father’s side is very interesting and informative. To him, family was always important. Thank you for the family history. Having the family reunions enriches family values for our young people and brings closure to some misunderstandings of the family background for the elders.

    My ancestor was Caroline Haughabook born in 1818 in SC. I do not know anything about her ancestors.
