HASH, & Related families. In 1773 the HASH family settled on the New River in Virginia. "OLD JOHN HASH" b. abt. 1708, and is believed to of died Apr. 13, 1784, in what is now Grayson Co., Va.. His son WILLIAM HORTON HASH [b. 1740/50, and d. aft 1820 ] lived and died in Grayson Co., Va.. It is WILLIAM,s son ANDREW HASH that we [ the Whitley County, Ky., & Greene Co., In.] descend from . ANDREW HASH was b. 1775/1780 in Grayson Co., VA. There on Feb. 25, 1805 he married NANCY HART HASH b. abt 1784, Va., and died in Greene Co., Indiana between 1850/1860. ANDREW & NANCY HART HASH migrated to Whitley Co., Kentucky, in the 1820's. They were the parents of; PETER b. abt 1806, WILLIAM 1810-1890, JOHN b. abt. 1810, AHART 1815-1890, MARGARET b. abt. 1816, STEPHEN b. abt. 1820-1879, and we believe there was a last child, CECELIA b. abt. 1825. The older son PETER left descendants in Pulaski, Laurel, Bell, counties in S.E. Ky., but also apparently spent time in Greene Co., In. WILLIAM 's family mostly stayed in the CORBIN, KENTUCKY area. MARGARET apparentl was married to a ANDERSON, and along with siblings STEPHEN , JOHN, AHART, & CECELIA??? lived in Greene County. The move to Greene Co., followed a seperation, and in 1845 a divorce between ANDREW & NANCY , in Whitley Co., Ky. As far as I can tell, all the HASH families in Greene County are descendant's of this family. I am still looking for a burial place for NANCY HART HASH, her children MARGARET, & CECELIA??. I have located graves for the sons, except for PETER. The family that stayed in Kentucky are most all buried at Corinth Cemetery, Corbin, Kentucky. Again in the early 1900's a group of my HASH families moved to Greene County. ANDREW & NANCY HART HASH's great grand children moved to [ I believe ] the Linton area. These were my grand mother's [ IDA HASH ALSIP 1903- 1996 ] uncles. I have found that her uncle JOSEPH HASH apparently stayed in Greene for a time, and had a family there. The others apparently moved onto the Chicago area before they all but my grand mother's dad JOHN HASH & one sister LUCY JANE HASH ASHER VANTREESE [ which stayed in Corbin, Ky. ] settled early on in Eureka , California. Eventually JOSEPH HASH settled there to be with his brothers & sisters. JOSEPH died in Ca., but I have found traces of his family in the Linton area. His grand children should be older adults now. In my research I have found several families in Greene County, from S.E. Kentucky [ Laurel, Whitley, Pulaski, Knox , counties, Ky. ]. I am looking for other descendants of my HASH family. I will exchange info upon request. THANKS! Steven H. Alsip, 1897 5th Street Road, Corbin, Kentucky 40701-9590 ph# 606/523-2700. email, madmax@2geton.net
