Looking to see where name spelling was changed. I believe it was with a Jacob H. who was married to a Cathrine____? Before 1811. He had 8 children,Jacob,Joseph,Isreal, George,Cathrine,Isabelle,Christina,John.The books I have only mention Jacob by first name Jacob was a farmer. Any help with finding the correct spelling would be appreciated. According to my 93 year old father the Hensal/Hensel was split because on of the ancestors kept two families,one on one side of the mountain and another on the other side.
