Herman Zumbrunnen

Life Sketch
Herman Zumbrunnen, sometimes Hermann, was the second son of Walter Zumbrunnen (and thus the third Zumbrunnen man in history?). I’ve uncovered no information of note about his life, and he seems to have been included in genealogies because his grandson Conrad Zumbrunnen became a prominent Abbot. It’s a reminder that there have probably been many other junior lines of the family that were not as well documented as the main line.
