I do not have an answer on your questions, but I too am looking into my husbands ancestry line of the "Homan", not to confuse it with the "Homans". The Homan line that I am researching is from Brookhaven, Long Island, NY also around Southold, Bellport, & Patchogue and possibly Yaphank, Long Island, NY. Also not to confuse with Homan line from Wading River or Pt. Jefferson, Long Island, NY-haven't figured out yet if they are related.
Anyhow, in our family line there is also talk of our Homan line being of Indian Heritage (Mohauk / Onondaga) from around Rochester, NY - but I haven't figured out how that is possible because the GGGGgrandfather's were born in England, moved to Salem, Essex,Massachusetts and then to Long Island during the late 1700's & early 1800's.
I did find that some of the Homan did branch out to New Jersey, PA, and I believe TX.
That's all I have so far. So maybe I did answer some Indian questions for you? If you have any more info, would you please share your idea's?
