My father Christoph A. and all his siblings grew up on this farm and graduated from school in Charlotte Court House. The farm which was named "Forrestdale" was originally purchased in 1870 (Deed book 33), page 38 by my gguncle Frederick William Haneiwnckel of Richmond, VA. This farm on Cub Creek contained 418 acres was given to my grandfather Christoph Ludewig Herman Hanewinckel on his 21st birthday. Christoph L.H.
