My great great grandfather, William Smith, married Mary Dehaven, daughter of Jesse Dehaven of London Britain, Pennsylvania. I am particularly tracing his descendants and those of his father, Samuel II of Horsham, in Montgomery County. For those lines, go to descendants of Samuel II, , below. For Jesse Dehaven's Smith line of descent, Go to my main genealogical file , see Smith group sheets at end. But people tracing Dehaven ancestry are likely to be descended from any branch of the family, so there is a need for the data base below. I am often finding that to trace my close relatives I have to be able to tell people which Dehavens they ARE descended from! One key clue; if you know of a family tale about an ancestor named Jacob who leant money to George Washington during the Revolutionary War and it was never paid back, you're a Dehaven. No matter HOW you don't know how you link up to the family. That story happened to alot of people, but no other family REMEMBERS such a tale - let alone has been persistently fully organized and suing in federal courts and lobbying Congress to RECOVER the money for the past 200 years. Dehavens are one exceptional family. For the full story, Go to my Dehaven history page . For more information on early Dehavens and for information on Smith lines of descent from Jesse Dehaven, see My main genealogical file My notes on the Dehavens German Dehaven history Evert's and Peter's seal, Jesse Dehaven's mark" Unfortunately Dehavens are a feudal lot (we come from French pre-Reformation Huguenot stock) and not too great on coordination, so anyone researching Dehaven ancestry needs to check a half dozen places where the information is likely to be. A number of Dehavens belong to a mailing list, DEHAVEN-L@rootsweb.com, and their postings are archived and searchable at mailing list (click on searches) at Rootsweb . Several people have posted LARGE amounts of Dehaven genealogical information to this list. 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. Montgomery Co PA biography Philadelphia Co PA biography Then there is the Dehaven Club. This large 20+ or something year old club is a great resource. Membership is $10 per year, and you get your own genealogy, if their president (and author) Dorothy Bertine has it, and she has an awful lot collected. You also get three interesting newsletters full of interesting information, and I got a set of back issues, a copy of Baron Von Alten's chart, and a directory of the club's several hundred members with phone numbers, addresses, and code of which Dehaven line they belong to if they know it. You don't have to know or prove you are a Dehaven to join the club. Bertine the genealogy-eating monster is secretive, won't share with you an awful lot of information you need to for instance find your immediate relatives, and also likes to harass people with legal threats if they share their own information, so alot of people don't give her their information, therefore she doesn't have all of it! However, people will often share freely with each other, so one just writes to them or calls them up on the phone. Bertine the genealogy-eating fiend aside, Club membership is well worth the investment. Their web site is at Dehaven Club Web site . The information below is taken from information available to me; from relatives and members of those lines, Baron Von Alten's chart, Helen Martha Wright's Dehaven genealogy, Brogan family documents compiled by D.A.R. This isn't necessarily the most up to date information, and Baron VonAlten's chart is particularly prone to errors. The chart was compiled to settle an estate. Compilers of such charts often have little reason to make any effort to be accurate. It's still one of the best Dehaven genealogical guides ever put together, and its small size (it comes as a compact 11 X 17 or something chart) makes it popular. Following is sections of an article on its history from a Chester County newspaper. January unreadable, vol 9, #1, forget about the title of the newspaper, I guess. "DE HAVEN- A Correction. At the rooms of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, in Phiadelphia, and also at the Historical Society of Montgomery County, in Norristown, there is the copy of a chart bearing the heading, "Genealogy of de Haven." The descendants of some of teh male lines of the immigrant "Evert in den Hoeven" (De Haven) are there given." Author, Mrs. Carrie E. Tucker Dracasse, purports to be compiler from original sources of a larger sheet "of a part of which the foregoing purported to be a copy" here clarifies its history. "The original large sheet, or, as it is better known, the "Chart", four yards long and four feet wide, written by hand and mounted on muslin, is a "they-say-so" chart, compiled from a correspondence carried on with De Haven descendants in all parts of the United States, from February, 1894, to May, 1895, by the writer of this article, and contanis the information exactly as it was received. "Many of the records are from "Family Bibles" or "lineage books" kept in the families. The many inconsistencies found in the earlier generations show taht, the constant repition of Christian Nanes in all lines, caused great confusion when it came to recitin g traditions. No efforts were made during that year to verify any of the statements received...no material changes ever having been made in it for certain very definiate reasons. "BAron Eberhard von Alten, then of Weimar, Germany, whose wife was a De Haven, arranged the data for the printed sheet. IN 1894-1895, he had visited America, made some researchesinNew York and Philadelphia and called at my home in Chicago. Returning to GErmany, he employed a genealogiest to collect such data as could be found there, which, later, he sent me. Meanwhile, as secretary-treasurer of the "De Haven club of Chicago," I had made the compilation from the correspondence to show the inconsistencies and the need of careful research; had spent several weeks among De Haven descendants in Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, being greatly assisted in Philadelphia by Mr. Thomas R. Supplee, since deceased, and had continued the correspondence. (Note, if this person wasn't his only source, it is unlikely that his chart contains only information he copied from her chart.) Returning to America about four years later, Baron von Alten requested the privelege of copying some of the male lines from my compilation, and himself did the copying. In several places, as dates and locations seemd to justify them, he made changes or additions. Records found since show that, some of these changes and additions were not warranted by facts. There are other errors in the printed sheet, such as come from haste in copying, and typographical errors, which could hardly have been avoided since the printing was done in Germany...No attempt has been made to correct errors in the printed copies which have come to my notice..." Mrs. Dracasse then describes the history of her De Haven family club in Chicago, started winter 1893-4, she daughter of Ann CAtharine Dehaven Tucker, one of the tehn two living daughters of JOhn De Haven, b Pennsylvania. She hoped to publish the apparently considerable information that they compiled; it doesn't say if she ever did, and I don't know if she ever did.

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.
