There is an old song we learned as kids, called John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmitt. In our family line, going up father to father, it goes like this: Kenneth Glyn Hales, Frank Hales, Charles Harmon Hales, George Hales, Stephen Hales, Stephen Hales, Stephen Hales (yes, there were 3 in a row), John Hales, Jacob Hales. That is as far as we have been able to go. So, it is John, Jacob, ???. For now we have called him Jingleheimer. The purpose of this thread is to note any research into who Jingleheimer really was.
