This is not a complete genealogy of all of the HASSELL family branches, simply the ones who settled in that area in or near what is now known as Merrimack NH. There is much dispute about the origin of this line, and I have done my best to present an accurate genealogy. Please do not ask me to research your family line. If you have additional material to add to the Merrimack lines, I would be glad to add that information if you contact me.
