DNA Testing

We now have the mtDNA testing complete for Pearl Harlan Hullinger. All of her children, and all the children of her female descendants, and all of her female ancestors would have the same or nearly the same mtDNA.


Her Mitochondrial (mtDNA) Haplogroup T which is thought to have originated in Mesopotamia and/or the Fertile Crescent (modern Syria and Turkey) approximately 10,000-12,000 years ago, and then moved northwest in to Europe and east as far as modern Pakistan and India.


In his popular book The Seven Daughters of EveBryan Sykes, who is himself in Haplogroup T, named the originator of this group "Tara," which means rocky hill in Gaelic. Sykes believes that: "Tara herself lived 17,000 years ago in the northwest of Italy among the hills of Tuscany and along the estuary of the river Arno."

      (Clifford Hullinger fought along the River Arno in Italy in World War II. Back to were our GGGGGGGGGGGrandmother lived)

We also have the "Y" Chromsome Tests on the Hullinger men. We have a number of links to other Hullinger from Switzerland, which proves our Swiss connection. But the chromosome is relatively rare in Switzerland, indicating that our ancestry came to Switzerland from somewhere else, probably the middle east.

Serious Hail in Vivian South Dakota in July 2010. Note that this occurred after the Hullinger Reunion.


Best for Vivian to keep a constant Hullinger reunion going on to prevent this in the future.

Information about: 

Louise Liffengren Hullinger






This site is primarily about the Hullingers who settled in western South Dakota. Our early ancestors in Switzerland are the likely ancestors of most or all people with the Hullinger / Hollinger name.

Our Hullinger family originated in the small Village of Holvil (Boniswyl), Aargau, Switzerland, located near Zurich. We have visited this community, and found relatives. Since our ancestor left Switzerland in 1736, the connection is distant.












Schoss Hallwil in Boniswil, AG, Switzerland

The small castle is located in Boniswil, Argau Switzerland, the original home of the Hullingers. Beautiful lake and mountains adjacent to the Village.


The community is very attractive, with a small castle located at the foot of a lake. A fast flowing stream forms a moat around the castle. The small community is affluent and friendly.
______________________

After leaving Switzerland, our people gradually moved west, settling first in Pennsylvania, then Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, and finally homesteading in western South Dakota, south of the Capital of Pierre in Vivian.

Our other family names originated in Monkwearmouth, England (Harlan), and North Carolina (Poe, Cherokee). We have also visited these communities, and met charming relatives and visited historic buildings in our ancestral communities.

You should be able to see our family tree from this page. If not, I will be glad to send you the genealogy by Email.

Contact my father at 


Clifhull@juno.com - He is the expert.

The name in Switzerland is with an umlaut over the o.  In English this is variously translated to Hullinger or Hollinger.

Holliger Store in Switzerland

Craig Hullinger at the store operated by cousin E. Holliger in Boniswil, AG, Switzerland in 1990. We met the Mrs. E Hollinger, compared geneologies, and found that we were related from the 1660's. We visited with her again in 2003. The store is now closed.

Daniel Hullinger a resident of Madriver Township, County of Champaign & State of Ohio, in the Seventy Sixth year of his age, who being first duly sworn according to laws doth on his oath, make the following declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress passed June 7th A.D. 1832.      

That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers, and served as herein stated.      
He was born in Lancaster County, State of Pennsylvania on the 12th day of March A.D. 1757.  

He had his age recorded (as taken from his father's Family Record) in a book prepared & kept by him for the purpose of a Family Record Book.      

He continued to reside in the County in which he was born, until the year 1777, when a short short time after harvest, (the day he does not remember,) he volunteered for seven months, as a private in a company of volunteers under the command of Captain John Ashton - Gen. Bull was commander of the Regiment or Battalian: 

- the company was formed at Philadelphia 

- he was at the battle of Germantown near Philadelphia, in October 1777 

- he served out his seven months term, and received a discharge, which he has lost.      

Sometime after (the exact time he does not remember) he was called out with a company of militia under Capt.  John Ashton -- and served a term of two months -- during which time, he believes they were stationed a short time on Chesnut Hill near German Town, in Pennsylvania. 
he received a discharge, but has lost it-      

After which, a waggon and team of horses of his father, Christian Hullinger, was called into the service of the regular Army, in the neighborhood of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Daniel Barry being waggonmaster which team, he the said Daniel Hullinger drove for the term of eight months in succession, and was then discharged.  

His fourth and last term he believes was two months in guarding the prisoners at Lancaster barricks, (he thinks the prisoners were taken at Yorktown in Virginia, on the surrender of Lord Cornwallis) - he was first Lieutenant under a Captain whose name he does not distinctly recollect; but thinks it was Capt. Fetter, or Vedder. he received his discharge, which is also lost.  
    
Soon after the war of the Revolution he removed to the State of Virginia - from thence to Ross County in this State (Ohio) - from thence to Champaign County Ohio, where he has resided for about sixteen years, & where he now resides.      
He has no documentary evidence, and knows of no person, whose testimony he can produce, who can testify to his services.

[0002photo.jpg]HULLINGER - HOLLIGER
U.S. COAT OF ARMS

This is an American Coat of Arms for the American-Swiss Family of Hullinger - Holliger

The M -1 Rifle represents the weapons used by by our family, including:

  American Revolution - Christian and Daniel Hollinger


  Blackhawk War - William Morgan Hart


  Civil War - Lewis Harlan and David Lockridge


  World War I - John and Harvey Hullinger


  World War II - Clifford, Ellis, Alan and Jack Hullinger


  Vietnam - Craig Hullinger, Dana and Noel Erickson

The Swiss Halberd was carried by our Swiss Hollinger forebears. It also stands for the weapons carried by our ancestors in England, Norway, and Native America.

The silhouette is of Ellis (Red) Hullinger, a real South Dakota cowboy, and represents our pioneer journey from Europe west to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, and South Dakota.

The Dove stands for peace, a preferred alternative to war.
