Surname Saturday - Hummel

Today's Surname Saturday entry is Hummel.

This is me with my almost 95-year-old grandmother. Her only sibling is 97. You read that right. Long live the Hummel's! My line, through Grandma, lived near Stuttgart, Germany, in a village called Bunzwangen, as far back as the late 1600's. Our immigrant ancestor arrived in 1866 in Michigan.

Some of their American locations are:

Adrian, Lenawee, Michigan
Pemberville, Wood, Ohio
Lansing, Ingham, Michigan

Some collateral names are:

Dork / Doerk
Schmidtke / Schmeidke
Hoefer / Hofer / Hoffer

Here is a link to my website with all my known Hummel names. I'd love to hear from you if you find we have anyone in common!
