Sometimes it is possible to guess where a surname originated through surname distribution maps. These maps graphically display locations where surnames occurred at different periods in time. This strategy provides genealogists with a starting point for research in the birth country, when that information cannot be discovered through sources recorded in the new country of settlement. It works particularly well for less-common surnames and among families that have stayed in the same European locations for centuries.

This site has information about the Hullinger family and some information about other relatives - Hollinger Holiger Harlan Liffengren Anderson Hart Lockridge Kaasa Bagn Poe

The information is primarily about the Hullingers who settled in western South Dakota, but our early ancestors in Switzerland are the likely ancestors of most or all people with the Hullinger / Hollinger name.

Our Hullinger family originated in the small Village of Holvil (Boniswyl), Aargau, Switzerland, located near Zurich. We have visited this community, and found relatives. Since our ancestor left Switzerland in 1736, the connection is distant.









lwil in Boniswil, AG, Switzerland









Schoss Hallwil in Boniswil, AG, Switzerland

The small castle is located in Boniswil, Argau Switzerland, the original home of the Hullingers. Beautiful lake and mountains adjacent to the Village.


The community is very attractive, with a small castle located at the foot of a lake. A fast flowing stream forms a moat around the castle. The small community is affluent and friendly.

______________________

After leaving Switzerland, our people gradually moved west, settling first in Pennsylvania, then Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, and finally homesteading in western South Dakota, south of the Capital of Pierre in Vivian.

Our other family names originated in Monkwearmouth, England (Harlan), and Vik, Seljord, (Kaasa) and Bagn, Norway (Liffengren, Bagn)and North Carolina (Poe Cherokee). We have also visited these communities, and met charming relatives and visited historic buildings in our ancestral communities.

You should be able to download our geneology from this page if you need it. If not, I will be glad to send you the geneology by Email.

Contact my father at Clifhull@juno.com - He is the expert.

The name in Switzerland is with an umlaut over an the o.  In English this is variously translated to Hullinger or Hollinger.  We think it likely that most of us are descended from the Hollingers from Aargau in Switzerland.

Craig Hullinger at the store operated by cousin E. Holliger in Boniswil, AG, Switzerland in 1990. We met the Mrs. E Hollinger, compared geneologies, and found that we were related from the 1660's. We visited with her again in 2003. The store is now closed.

He had his age recorded (as taken from his father's Family Record) in a book prepared & kept by him for the purpose of a Family Record Book.      

He continued to reside in the County in which he was born, until the year 1777, when a short short time after harvest, (the day he does not remember,) he volunteered for seven months, as a private in a company of volunteers under the command of Captain John Ashton - Gen. Bull was commander of the Regiment or Battalian: 

- the company was formed at Philadelphia 

- he was at the battle of Germantown near Philadelphia, in October 1777 

- he served out his seven months term, and received a discharge, which he has lost.      

Sometime after (the exact time he does not remember) he was called out with a company of militia under Capt.  John Ashton -- and served a term of two months -- during which time, he believes they were stationed a short time on Chesnut Hill near German Town, in Pennsylvania. 
he received a discharge, but has lost it-

His fourth and last term he believes was two months in guarding the prisoners at Lancaster barricks, (he thinks the prisoners were taken at Yorktown in Virginia, on the surrender of Lord Cornwallis) - he was first Lieutenant under a Captain whose name he does not distinctly recollect; but thinks it was Capt. Fetter, or Vedder. he received his discharge, which is also lost.  
    
Soon after the war of the Revolution he removed to the State of Virginia - from thence to Ross County in this State (Ohio) - from thence to Champaign County Ohio, where he has resided for about sixteen years, & where he now resides.      
He has no documentary evidence, and knows of no person, whose testimony he can produce, who can testify to his services.      

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any State, or (if any) only on that of the agency of the State of Pennsylvania.
