Trace Yourself to Jacob

This simple outline of the four married children and of the 32 known grandchildren of the immigrant Jacob Hochstetler and their spouses is compiled from harvey Hostetler's Descendants of Jacob Hochstetler (1912), Descendants of Barbara Hochstedler (1938) and Gingerich & Kreider's AAMG (1986). The work was done by Daniel E. Hochstetler in Sept 1997.


First complete a 5-generation family tree chart of your own immediate family. In many cases that chart should connect with this outline. If you are under 50, there might still be a missing link or two! You may need Harvey Hostetler's DJH or DBH to make the connections.
