Have any of you considered the last name of Humberson or Humbertson?We are stuck in Alabama around around 1810-1816 with the Humberston, Humberson, Umberson names.
My gggrandfather Jerome George Umberson was born in ALA, so they say, around 1810 but I think it was a little bit later, for his brother Alexander Marion Humberson was born 1816 in Ala and I don't believe they were that far apart.I have found Harberson and Harbertson on census, but so far can find no connecting person that I can find that was born in MD.
We have been working with the assumption they came from the Humbertson/Humberston family from Maryland, which some moved to PA, but from there to ALA. we haven't been able to find them.I've been working on the names Thomas, George or William, and if you happen upon any one of them that perhaps have been born in MD or PA, they may be connected.
Think about it....the way people wrote on the census, they could have spelled it with an "ar" instead of "um".It very well could be, but we have to find someone of the Harbertson family born in MD.Do you have any records on any of the Harbertsons born ca 1750 or possibly somewhere even before 1790, that you don't know where they came from?
As I said before, we are kinda looking for those 3 names that would have been born in MD.Perhaps this would account for not being able to find many more Harbetsons.
If you possibly find any link, please email me or post it here. We possibly might get lucky and find some kind of clue. Thanks!
