    "The Haller family is of German origin. The grandfather of Flavius Haller, John Haller, was born at Fredrick, Maryland, but little is known of his life work. His brother, Godfrey Haller, spent his life in Barbour County, and Tobias Haller also lives there. Godfrey was a hatter by trade and Tobias made combs out of horn. All these brothers left posterity in Barbour County."
