Protestantic/Lutheran Line

The larger part of the Westphalian-Hesse family  originated in Dillenburg. First known member was Michael Hutsteiner, born about 1709. It is important to note that before 1734, the year his first baptised child was recorded, obviously no Hutsteiner had been in Dillenburg. Also important his profession: something like a doctor (‚Bader‘), with some relationships to the local palace there.  

Several families emigrated to the USA where a lot of their descendants still live.
