My grandfather, Harry Neville Hunsicker (they changed the spelling in the 1950s), was a grandson of Philip and Caroline Hansucker of Millwood. Just before he died in 1995, Granddad wrote a short history of his life. Here's a quote from the introduction:
< My research shows that some of my father's family spelled their name two ways--"Hansucker" which was the legal spelling of the name; and "Hunsicker", which was preferred. "Hunsicker" was more dignified so was used regularly. My great grandfather, George, used the name Hunsicker on his marriage certificate, when he married Elizabeth Shearer, June 30, 1808, in Winchester, Va. He named his oldest son after himself, (George). George Jr.'s children; John, Willie, Mattie, and Sydnie, preferred using "Hunsicker". John, almost always used the name, "Hunsicker" in everyday life, although his marriage license lists him as John Hansucker. His obituary records his name as "Hunsicker", yet his tombstone uses the name, "Hansucker". Mattie also has the name "Hansucker" on her marriage license, but preferred "Hunsicker" even after she married Mr. E. R. Hook. She encouraged the family to make Hunsicker the official name, although it was never done during her lifetime. John and Mattie's brother, Willie, (William T), generally used the name, "Hansucker". Their sister, Sydnie used Hunsicker. My grandfather, Philip, (George's younger brother) used Hansucker as his family name. As a result, my father used "Hansucker.">>
As of 2004, there are no male descendants to carry on the family name in this branch of the family.
