Here's the Hash family history from my grandmother's line in Southwest Virginia.

Hash name comes from the name fist used "Hashes" . First one on record was Thomas Hashes(Hash) born in Europe in 1650.
He came from either France or Germany to America.
Second Hash on record was John Hashes born in 1700.
The Third was William Hartons Hash .
The Fourth was Josephate Hash who married Margaret Haulsee.
a. William "Blind Fox Billy" Hash, son of Josephate, born 1/25/1809, died 5/11/1895.
i)married Jane Bonham (born 1/29/1811, died before 1862). They had 12 children :
a. Levi (1833), Eli, Elsie, Calvin, Elizabeth , William , Abel, Zebedee,& Wiley (twins), Mary Jane, Sarah Caroline, & Loudema.
ii) married Polly Glass (born 10/1/1831, died 7/10/1890), they had five children :
a. Alice, Emaline, and Martha Jane (twins), William Mathas, & Lee F.

Tax Records in SouthWest Virginia show the following :
Willian Hash 1771
John Hash 1773
from John's will , probated in 1784, it memtions :
a. John , son by first wife
b. William, son
c. Thomas, son
d. John, son by second wife
i)Richard Hall , grandson
Thomas Hash 1774

I have some detail on the children of William Hash. Please e-mail me if you would like to know more.

I would be interested in learning more about Jane Bonham Hash (first wife of William) .
and of Eliza Bishop Hash (1840 wife of Levi Hash)

According to the genealogy handed down to me, a John Hash moved to Grayson County, Virginia in 1732 or 1733 with his brothers, James and William. John's children were: William who married Ellender Osborn, Thomas who married Ruth Sturgeon, Jane and another John.(ca 1760) This John fathered another John 4/16/1794 who married Mary Cole. This genealogy is pretty much complete from them on down to me. Interested?

The will also mentions the following :
1. his son John by his first wife,
2. A son William (who was to have a full and equal share with all of the children [not named])
3. a son Thomas
4. another son John , by his second wife.
5. also names a grandson Richard Hall

Please let me know who John hash's ancestors were, and any additional information on his children.

I have a Crockett (William ?) Hash who married a Cora.
Crockett was the son of Eli Hash (born 1835)
and Polly Russel. Eli was the son of William "Blind Billy" Hash
(born 1805 in Grayson Co., VA).

Please let me know if this is a match, I also have several other
William Hash's , but no others matching the date of 1898.

William Hash was born March 12, 1898-died August 8, 1970. He was married to Cora Martin Mays March 6, 1918 in Comers Rock. He went by the nickname "Kenny" since his full name was William McKinley Hash. He was my grandfather. I am searching for his father Joseph Hash, born August 25, 1875, his father was Benjamin Hash which from my information immigrated from Ireland although I've found no proof of this. Would like to know if you've found more information.
