    I am from the John Jacob Huber, father George and mother Barbara, who was born in 1727 in the Netherlands. He immigrated to US in 1749. I would like to continue my search for George’s parents. Any help with this?

    There is a comment that one researcher found 52 Huber progenitors. I found the following site, which perhaps you are aware of. Type in your search area ThePalatineProject. The home page will come up; go the right and at the bottom of the list you will see the statement “search the palatine project”. This is a search of ship records in an attempt to catalog immigrants from the Palatine area 1600′s and through the 1700′s. If you type in “Huber” you will have numerous records of this line. Many Huber names. I believe we have my line pretty firmly established as the line of Hans Huber and his son Jacob Huber line…….I think. My Conrad Barnhart and his many name spellings in connection with the Huber/Gefeller line of the late 1700′s period is probably going to send me to the genealogy nuthouse. Again thanks for your website. No need to reply, I know you are busy but I wanted you to know of The Palatine Project site.

    1. Hello Vicky,

      I’ll contact you tomorrow regarding the Huber and G’Fellers line via Find a Grave. My mother is the 2nd great granddaughter of Sarah G’Fellers and Joshua Greene. Their son Jacob Greene, my mother’s great grandfather is buried at Ebenezer. My mom’s mother was born back there.

      DNA testing of my mother has made the Hoover line very clear, along with many other Mennonite matches in Lancaster county. We match a descendant from your line.

  3. Kris I hope it is o.k. if I use the names of the Hubers and the townships you have listed.
    My 5th great grandfather was Hans Huber and I did a report from findings on the net in an attempt to get information in one place under Hans Huber in my Ancestry.com site. There is much confusion and I am certainly not unconfused, but less than I was……I think. I work on many lines but the Huber/Barnhart/Gefeller line is one of them.
    Thank you for your hard work, it is very much appreciated.

    1. Let me know if I can be of any assistance, Vickey. There a quite a number of Hubers in Martic Township—many with the same given names (Jacob in particular). Their land adjoined one another. They also intermarried. I don’t know that there’s any proof of a relationship, but I’m sure you’ll find lots of tree on the net that show one.

      The names one the map are the ones I found from warrant records—meaning they received original patents from the Penns or their representatives to hold the land. Many more Huber/Hoovers probably settled in Lancaster (I can think of a few off the top of my head, including my presumed ancestor Michael Huber) and either settled for a short time and moved on without leaving a record or purchased land from another original warrantee. So, this list of Huber/Hoovers is not complete. I think another researcher was able to find something like 52 Hoover progenitors… That’s quite a few families. My map shows only a handful!
