The Hackman Story: The Descendants of Henry Hackman of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Dorothy Elaine Hackman Grace compiled the original version of "The Hackman Story" in 1976 for her cousins, neices, nephews and children. Lawrence Knorr was a recipient of one of these comb-bound volumes, triggering his interest in genealogy and family history. 'Elaine' passed in 1999, and Lawrence has since updated the book based on correspondence between the two and Lawrence's subsequent research. This book details the history of the Hackman family, Mennonites who emigrated from Ibersheim, near Worms, Germany, and settled in Lancaster County near Lititz and Manheim. Much more than just genealogical information, this book contains many anecdotes, including early farm life, the first airplane and automobile seen in Millport, near Manheim, life at Elizabethown College from the 30's to the 60's, and events at various Churches of the Brethren.
