The Kornrumpf lines described in this website originated in the
part of Germany around the cities of Göttingen and Kassel that are now known as Hesse and Lower Saxony.
The borders of the region and names have changed throughout history.
Formerly the area where our Kornrumpfs lived included portions of Hesse-Kassel, Hanover and Thüringen.<
of our Kornrumpf ancestors emigrated to America in the 1800s
and settled in New York, Michigan, and Illinois, then later
spread out across the country to Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska,
Wisconsin, Maryland and other states.
