I see your post is 2003, I am a Cornstubble by birth and I have always wondered our origin. My Dad was Robert Cornstubble, his parents, Henry & Mary Cornstubble. I am wondering if your still there? I have been wondering the same thing. I figured English, but with gathering info, I have had comments on the double b's meaning it is German. I was skeptic, once at a genealogy meeting the guess of the crowd was German, once again double b's. Last year I happened to run into my first cousin, Bert (Jr.) Cornstubble & our Dad's were brothers. My Dad was the youngest & his Dad an older brother. I asked him if he had ever heard what nationality Cornstubble is, he responded right away with German, I said how do you know that? He said my Dad told me. Sooo...I think it must be German. Sincerely Sandra Cornstubble Mullan.

That is what I was told years ago also...my Dad's oldest sister, Aunt Ivy told me she thought it was Indian,my Dad had no idea, he knew we had Irish & Scottish descent on one side. With investigation there is nothing to be found as far as tribes to be found in the area where they lived to connect with & she also gave me the name of Felix Cornstubble saying he was half & was actually murdered because he was a half breed:( He had a wife & about 6 children. I have searched & searched for Felix to no avail. Wondered if that could have been a nick name for him? I was hell bent that Cornstubble was Indian. With researching, I have come to the conclusion that it's possible our Indian may have been a full blooded Grandmother? & with the sons being half ..the Indian nationality come out & they carried the surname of Cornstubble. I had met my Aunt for the first time in the late 70's, she was my Dad's oldest sibling born in 1883..died in 1980, so more than way over 30yrs ago.She lived in Colorado. My Dad looked so "Irish", I knew or met most of his siblings & they are all fair & light. Our families are predominately light eyed & hair. But..on my great grandfather,Greenbrier Cornstubble's military record lists him as black eyes, black hair & dark complexion...hmmm? Of course this is speculation, but I really feel our Indian is from a female Grandparent. The German keeps coming up for Cornstubble. If you have any other information for this...I would love to hear it. Sincerely, Sandy Cornstubble Mullan.:)
