My grandfather, C.O.Hosterman Sr. came from Halifax and my Dad was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts and I was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts. My Dad passed away on 08/04/2000 at 91 years old. I do not have any other info at the present time. I do have a coin that bears the Hosterman and Etter names fron N.S.

To Charles O. Hosterman, I din't get your e-mail address if you sent it so I hope you get this message. Your ancestor must be Charles Owen Hosterman, b. 09/29/1834 in St. John, New Brunswick, d. 03/07/1870. His wife was Charlotte Howe, b. 05/03/1830, d. 1911. They married in St. John, New Brunswick on 04/26/1858. Charles Owen Hosterman's brother was my ancestor John Edward Hosterman. Also his wife Sarah Minns Howe was Charlotte Howe's sister. Their son Thomas Melville Hosterman, my great-grandfather is the one I have problems finding info on. My father was born in R.I. in 1918. He is 83yrs. now. I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. and we still reside in Florida. I have one brother and he has three sons to carry on the Hosterman line. Do you still live in MA? My great-grandfather was supposed to of lived in Sharon, MA. and is buried in Somerset, MA. Well e-mail me again if you can with any other info you might have. P.S. My brother brought a spoon from England that bears an "H' for Thomas Hosterman. He was a silversmith that was married to Eliza Etter.

That must be the same Charles O. Hosterman as my uncle is was John Howe Hosterman and I am currently talking to a relative about the connection to a Howe in Boston in the 1700's. Yes, I still live in Massacxhusetts, in Methuen. Keep in touch, my e-mail is m3csind@aol. com or chuck03@mediaone.net, also chuck03@aol.com. Have a good one.

I have family in Elkhart, Indiana but they originally came from the Selingrove, PA area and before that were traced to the Palitinate region of Germany. One of our ancestors was Lt. Col. Peter Hosterman from the French & Indiana War and served under Gen. George Washington. My mother has quite a complete geneaology of Hostermans reaching out to many families. She may have some info that would help your familly. Please let me know if I can help and I can connect you to her. Deborah

Hi Lil,
Thanks for writing. I'm in Northern Indiana where there is still a lot of history arorund about the Hostermans. My grandfather's father, John Hosterman, I believe came here from Pennsylvania, where there are thousands of Hostermans in Lancaster County. That seems to be the area where they began after coming over around 1680. You may already know most of this history. I have some family history packed in a box, because we were planning on moving this year. Please be in touch with me again, and let me know more of your queries, and perhaps I can help you. I could go and get out some of the history and share with you if you like. I also have some Hosterman CD's that were sent to me by a relative in California. There are several Hostermans in Califoirnia.
Hope to hear from you again. Greetings, Debby :-)
