Howanstine and Family

My grandfather also was David B. Howanstine, married to Sara Jane Temple. My mother's name was Laura. I have traced Conrad to Ober Lundstadt, in the Palatine region of Germany. Due to the 30 Years War and disease, the population of the Palatinate had been decimated. Incentives were offered to have people immigrate and repopulate it. Some of the immigrants came from German speaking areas of Switzerland. I have no evidence that the Howanstines may have ultimately originated from the Switzerland area. I would be interested in any information that you may have on this family.
