Haneline Family

Johannes (John) V. Henlein was born in 1730 in Coberg, Northern Bavaria, Palatine Germany. He married Catherine Kuhn/Coone in 1748 in Germany and their first child Jacob was born in February, 1749. The ship, Isaac, arrived in Philadelphia on 27 Sept 1749 through the port of Rotterdam, Netherlands, (then Cowes). The family moved from Norfolk, Virginia (where their second child, Catherine was born in 1750) to Rowan County, North Carolina between 1750 and 1752 (when their third child Christianna was born). Johannes/John Henlein died in 1775 in Rowan County, NC. Jacob Booe was the executor of his estate. Catherine moved to Kentucky after Johannes' death with her youngest sons John, Abraham, and George and remained in Kentucky until her death in 1798.

This name appears in some records as Hainline. We have used Haneline throughout this page since it is the prevalent spelling in Davie County, where most of these families were located.
