The family tree consisting of 55 pages prepared by Daniel Williams, grandson of Fred and Hulda (Wickland) Humbke, goes back around 16 generations (400 years) to Tieleke Humbke (born between 1616 & 1620). I will be starting a tree with Ernest Dietrich Christian Humbke b. Aug 2, 1845 at #57 Windheim, Germany. Dietrich and his younger brother Chris were the first Humbkes from his family to come to North America.
A rolled-up version of the family tree for Dietrich and Louise (Schnepel) Humbke prepared by Dennis George, grandson of Joe and Mary (Humbke) George, occupies 7 feet on a wall and shows the families of each of Dietrich and Louise (Schnepel) Humbke’s 7 children that lived to adulthood.
Each of the 7 families consists of the following lengths:
Conrad and Catherine (Humbke) Conradi – 9 in
William and Emma (Humbke) Harris – 1 ft 6 in
Dave and Alvina (Humbke) – 2 ft 6 in
Ernest Sr. and Mary (Westenfeldt) Humbke – 3 ft 2 in
Carl and Mina (Humbke) Callies – 4 ft 5 in
Joe and Mary (Humbke) George – 5 ft 5 in
Dick and Hulda (Wickland) Humbke – 6 ft 10 in
On behalf of all kin, I would like to thank Dennis George, Daniel Williams, and Pastor Robert C. Greene for their efforts in researching our ancestors and the locations of presently living relatives.
I will be putting the tree on-line once I have contacted all families and have it relatively current.
