I am involved in a one-name study for the surname Hatfield. I am researching this name throughout the world. My earliest Hatfield ancestor that I have documented is my 6th great grandfather John Hatfield, who was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania in 1686. He died in Montgomery County, Pa. before 1756. He was married to Elizabeth Travis. John’s father might have been Adam Hatfield, who was born in 1655 in Germany; however, I have no documented proof of that. Adam’s wife might have been a Miss Pauling.
