The Hannah Brand in Portage is my Hannah Hunsicker Brand.  I have her children and information on her that was written by her granddaughter, Ida Brand Northrup who is my great-grandmother.  I have a picture of her as an elderly lady.

When I said that Michael Hunsicker's family was not traced in the book below I meant the descendents not the ancestors.

Hi, Laressa. Thank you for participating in this group.

In the book A Genealogical History of the Hunsicker Family (published 1911) on page 298 (Apendix I) is listed Michael Hunsicker who married Hannah Clemens. Unfortunately this family is not traced in this book.

On Ancestry.com I have found a Hannah Hunsicker (born 14 July 1830 died 11 May 1911) listed as the daughter of Michael Hunsicker and Hannah Clemens in other family trees. I have not research this person further.

When I went on Ancestry.com tonight to see if Hannah Hunsicker was in my tree there was a hint that led to a 1900 census from Main Street, Portage, Wood County, Ohio that lists a  Hanah Brand, widow, (born July 1830) and Sarah H. Brand, daughter (born September 1861).

Whether or not this Hanah Brand is the same as the Hannah Hunsicker in my tree would require further research. However, if the daughter matches we may be distant cousins.

Michael Hunsicker is the son of Jacob Hunsicker and Anna Ziegler.

Jacob Hunsicker is the son of Isaac Hunsicker and Barbara Greder.

Isaac Hunsicker is the son of Valentine Hunsicker and Elizabeth Kolb.

Valentine Hunsicker (who came to America in 1717) is my direct ancestor through his youngest son Henry.

This looks like it may be a connection but only more research will prove it.

Thanks William.  One of my 2nd great-grandfathers was Henry Hunsicker Brand b. 13 Aug 1854 Ohio to Michael Brand and Hannah Hunsicker.  Hannah was b. 14 Jul 1830 Montgomery Co., PA to Michael Hunsicker and Hannah Clemens.
