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

His 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.
