Thank you for your reply. I am not sure if we are from the same family. I am a direct descendant of Adam Humbert b., Oct. 17, 1733, son of Antoine Humbert Jr. and Barbara Ditmar. Adam migrated to Frederick Co. MD in 1767 from Neu Kelsterbach, Hesse, Germany. They came from Nancy, Alsace-Lorraine, France and left France at the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, to settle in Hesse. Adam came over on the ship Hamilton and was a school teacher and a carpenter. He died 1783. His brothers were Wilhelm, Frederick Ditmar, Jacob Phillip, Johannes Georg and Peter. I have an excerpt from the Frances Mackin Monlux book which is a history of the Humbert Family and biography of Frederick, brother of Adam. The tree that I found this year after my mother's passing, shows Adam, then Andrew, no dates, George W., b. 1810, George W. Jr., b. May 19, 1836; Homer Jackson Humbert, b. 1861 in Pittsburgh, PA; Homer Jackson Humbert, Jr., b. 1894 in Chester, PA. Does any of this data match your family history?
