Looking for family members
Posted by: Cynthia Kingman-Rothberg (ID *****9180) Date: December 03, 2002 at 09:12:28

My name is Cynthia Kingman, I am married to Ian Rothberg and we live in NJ.
(My old fourm post id was
My Dad is Robert Kingman and his Dad is George Kingman.
We all started out in Brooklyn, NY about 100 years ago. (My grand parents)
I do not know much about my fathers side of the family accept for the name of my grandfather and his 2 brothers.
My grandparents died 20 years ago before I really got to know them and to be interested in family heritage.
Since then I have come across several Kingman's that are not part of my immediate family.
One branch is the Raff's - I understand from Nancy (Raff) that her father was originally a Kingman that was adopted by the Raffs. The Kingman family that he came from lived in Arizona.
Over the years I have lost touch with Nancy and was wondering if anyone knew the Raff family?

Anyway, my Grandfather was George and his 2 brothers were Gene and Aubrey.
Aubrey had no children; Gene had 4 - 2 boys, 2 girls
My grandfather George had 3 - 2 boys, 1 girl.
Robert - my dad, George, and Mable.
Mable-May - didn't have any children, but she did foster a couple (don't know there names)
George had 3, Christine, Leslie, and Thomas. (Thomas died, leaving no children)
Leslie doesn't have any kids, but Christine has 2 - 1 boy and 1 girl.
(Again do not know their names)
Robert - my dad, had 4 - 3 girls, 1 boy.
Robert (jr), Patricia, Janet, and myself.
We are all married and live in different states now.
Bob - married Faye Hokallah, they live in MN, and have 2 kids, 1 boy-Robert, 1 girl-Lynn. Robert #3 has 1 child - Casey - a little girl. Lynn does not but she is married.
Bob since divorced Faye and married Linda Davidson. They still live in MN.
Patricia - married Richard Hough, they live in OH, and have 2 girls that are both married. Tricia and Kathleen - neither one has children - yet.
Janet - married Dr. Owen Kieran and lives in CT. They have 9 kids, 6 girls, and 3 boys.
None are married and none are over 21.
I am Cynthia - I cannot have children, but I plan to adopt one day. (Family trait unfortunately)
This is most likely more information then anyone needs - but I am hopeful someone can help.
My Grandmother Kingman (Mabel Betz) always told me when I was growing up, that we come from a very old, very big family, and that we are all related in way or another.
It would be really nice if this was true, I would like to meet some other Kingman family members.
I know quite a bit about my motherís side of the family (Wright/Hubble)- but very little about my fathers, we were never very close, don't know why.
I remember when I was very little, when I would stay with my grandmother. She would take me to visit my cousins for birthday parties, and all I could remember about them is that they were not from NY - they were always from out of town.
Well anyway if someone can help me with my quest, that would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Cynthia Kingman-Rothberg
Browns Mills, NJ
