I don't know much about my family tree. Most of my research seems to point to the fact that Battenfield was not the original surname of my family but that Am Ende may have been. The Am Ende name seems to have been dropped from the Am Ende-Battenfield link around 1650-1700, about the time the family immigrated to the United States on the boat, Two Brothers. The primary male name listed on the registry appears to be Johannes Battenfield (also seen as Johann Paul Am Ende Battenfield on some papers and documents it seems like).
As per my direct Battenfield knowledge, here is my lineage:
Jeri Battenfield (me) - father: Jerry D. Battenfield, mother: Kimberly A. Battenfield
Jerry D. Battenfield - father: Jerry G. Battenfield, mother: (Edith?) Louise Duggan
Jerry G Battenfield - father: Earl Battenfield, mother: Mavis Battenfield
Earl Battenfield - father: Maddion(Mattison?) Battenfield, mother: Sarah M(atilda) Battenfield
Maddion(Mattison?) Battenfield - father: Phillip Battenfield (possibly Am Ende? He was French/German I know that much), mother: Debra (Rouse?) Battenfield.
Earl had MULTIPLE siblings (upwards of 13!). Prior to Phillip, what I know is that Johannes/Johann Paul was one of potentially 3 Am Ende names that appear to be on the ship registry at the time of immigration. The other two may have been a Hans Adam/or just Hans Am Ende and a Phillip(Johannes Phillip?) Am Ende.
Any help would be appreciated! :)
