III.2.3 Generations of Doctors

III.2.3 Generations of Doctors

An interesting fact about the hessian protestant family line and their emigrated descendants: there had been generations of doctors covering a time frame of at least 200 years.

Beginning with Georg Hutsteiner who was the first in a row of many individuals whose profession was doctor. He had been a  ‘Bader’ which is a bit similar to a physician / healer.

His nephew Michael Huthsteiner who came along with uncle Georg to Wetzlar in Hesse became a  ‘Bader’, too.

Michael’s sons  Philipp Conrad  and Conrad  became doctors, too. Phillip Conrad serviced at the Hessen-Nassau army and finally ranked up to a ‘Regimentschirurgus’ (regiment’s surgeon).

Also Philipp Conrad’s sons Georg Friedrich and Johann Friedrich  got the profession of their father: doctor. Both studied in Marburg university a well known institute for medical studies even nowadays. Johann Friedrich ranked up to an ‘Obermedicinalrath’ and several papers can be found in archives stating his name and signature.

Johann Friedrich’s son Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Ludwig studied in Marburg university, too. Obviously he went to Algiers, Algeria, where he died in hospital (as stated by a short note in the Marburg university chronicles).

Then Georg W. Huthsteiner became doctor in the US and his children George Huthsteiner and Constance Huthsteiner are actually practicing doctors.
