Howernehr Family

The Howernehr Family appears to have been from Schottland, Danzig, Prussia, in the late 1600's. I know absolutely nothing about the family history. All of the information presented here comes directly from the Grandma3 CD. I don't like knowing just the names, dates, etc., I like to know about the family. I will definitely be doing more research into this family. Any help from the many descendents listed, and those not listed, is greatly appreciated.

In the Grandma3 CD, many other families are descended from this family. Names like: Von Kampen, Heidebrecht, Tiessen, Foht, Barg, Siemens, only to name a few. This is definitely a family worth pursuing farther. But then, aren't they all. Here we go:
