Dehavens: EArly ancestry and Descendants of Samuel II

For more information on early Dehavens and for information on

Smith lines of descent from Jesse Dehaven, see

    My main genealogical file on my father's ancestry 

    My notes on the Dehavens 

    German Dehaven history 

    Evert's and Peter's seal, Jesse Dehaven's mark" 

Following is a partial table of Dehavens (they are a large 

family) with my own direct line and their siblings, showing

relationships to Jacob Dehaven of the Revolutionary War loans.

I will be glad to look anyone up in my copy of Baron Von Alten's

(l894) Dehaven table and other information on request. I 

have the most specific information on my own lines, and the

purpose of this file is to compile information on people

descended from Samuel II and closely related to me.  See also my

Smith group sheets in  my main 

genealogical file  for descendants of Samuel II who are 

members of my own Smith family.  My great-great grandfather,

William Smith, of London Britain PA and White Clay Creek, DE, 

married Mary the daughter of Jesse Dehaven, and they had ten

children, and many descendants.  I have information on several

of those lines, and am looking for the rest of them.    

A number of books on Dehavens have been published; Martha

Wright's  good one is available from the Mormon LDS library 

through its family history centers. The information below is

generally known about the family, comes from Baron Von Alten's

chart of the genealogy of the Peter I branch of the Dehaven

family published in 1894 and up to date on many lines at that

time, Martha WRight's book on the Dehavens, and relatives.

Don Shockley and Joe Patterson have a set of good and informative

biographical and genealogical documents on early Dehavens

including Samuel II's line at the USGENWEB archives under

Pennsylvania: Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties, biography.

This page and the information on it are copyrighted by law. The

notice, which is not mandatory, serves as a warning, and also

makes it hard for anyone to claim they didn't know the stuff is

copyrighted.  Which I bet many people don't know - I didn't

until two weeks ago, and also didn't care.  Anyone but

Dorothy Bertine and the Dehaven Club as a legal entity have my

permission to copy, use, publish, put on their web pages, even

try to sell (good luck) anything on this page, subject to I 

retain my copyright and the rights it gives me, and noone may

copyright it, own it, have proprietary rights to it, or tell 

other people not to publish it or give it to anyone.  And I would

appreciate being credited for information in these pages, not 

because I deserve more credit than the rest of my family who like

all genealogical information it came from (!!!!!), but because

crediting information puts people on notice that the material

may be copyright, and a trail of uncredited information could

end in a situation like the one that prompted me to put copyright

notices on some of my pages, and I might not even know about it

to fix it.  And keep in mind that my copyright still exists if

I fail to come after you and eat you for dinner, which I 

probably won't, since my interest is in the whole health of a

family group!     

The reason for this notice is that a distant cousin associated

with a family club recently tried to restrict the members of the

entire family group from sharing, publishing on the web, or

giving o public data bases like the Mormon Family History

Library's or Genweb their own genealogical information, subject

to the publication and sale of a book! Until that moment, I

thought that the book, as a COOPERATAIVE family project, was a

good idea.  I VERY strongly believe that a family's genealogical

information belongs to the entire family, and noone has a right

to tell people what they can and can't do with their own

genealogical information, prevent them from using their own

genealogical information, or interfere with communication of

such basic and critical information within a family.  The 

reality of modern family communication is that most families in this country are l3 or so generations old, some far older, and huge, and their members don't know who or where each other are, and have limited at best interest in direct communication if 

they did.  A family still needs to transmit its basic genealogical, genetic health and historical information,and 

under the circumstances that communication is necessarily

largely public.  It takes place via the Web and large data

bases, where people can access it.   Unfortunately, another fact

of modern intellectual life is retain the right to use one's

own "intellectual property" is copyright it.  This is a major

issue in professions that do substantial academic and

scientific research, most of which depend on the free exchange

and open availability of knowledge and of research findings. 

So the purpose of the copyright notice is to make it clear to all

that this information is freely available AND WILL REMAIN SO. 

The reasons why Dorothy Bertine and the Dehaven Club don't have

my permission to use it are that I don't want my information 

legally entangled with people who are acting like this, and I

can't justify to my relatives letting people like this have our

collective information.
