Hoobler Family Genealogy Forum
Kevin, this is a stab in the dark, but there are enough coincidences that there might be something there.
Michael Braun, Sr. of Alsace-Lorraine, Germany, married about 1766 in Berks Co., PA, Margerette Catarina Shamback (possibly a spelling variation?). I show Margerette's father as George.
They had a daughter, Margaret, who married Jacob Hoobler I. They had a son, George.
I don't know if there is a connection here, but thought I would share this info.
