My ex was a Hiatt. I remember researching her Hiatts back to the Quakers. I don't research that tree anymore. Her ancestors migrated from NC to PA to IN just like my Mennonite people.

I had disconnected Thomas Haines from Matthias and Jane Brackett Haines since he doesn't appear in a primary source for the family as their child. Could he be connected to one of the other Matthias' in the Haines family? Is there a primary source for him being their son? I disconnected him again - though I hadn't done that - then saw you had reconnected him. :-)
