THE NEWHOUSE WEB SITE

This website is intended to be a compilation of Newhouse Family information with major emphasis on North America. It is intended to cover any form/spelling of the name and include all national origins. It is organized by family groups. For others not in North America we would be glad to accept family information.
Because of my interest and research on my own family this site will look overloaded with the family of Anthony Newhouse, the papermaker of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania There was also an Anthony Newhouse, the cabinetmaker of Bucks and Westmoreland Counties, Pennsylvania. Anthony, the cabinetmaker was a generation younger than Anthony, the papermaker.
This site basically outlines families that were in the U.S. before 1800 since that is most of what I have discovered and likewise for those that I have corresponded with. Hopefully with the help of others who would contribute their family information we can have a more balanced site. Many immigrants came to this continent in the 1800s with the Newhouse surname in it’s many forms and spellings.
The name, spelled Newhouse, had early roots in England. The same name, in the language of the place of origin, Neuhaus, Neuhauser, Niehus, Casanueva, Casanova, Villenueve for example, arose in Germany, Holland, Scandinavia, Spain, Italy, France and other countries and was anglicized to Newhouse by immigrants to North America.

THE NEWHOUSES OF PHILADELPHIA COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA; LOUDOUN, FAUQUIER, CULPEPER, WASHINGTON, WYTHE COUNTIES, VIRGINIA; SULLIVAN COUNTY, TENNESSEE; OHIO; INDIANA; ILLINOIS; IOWA AND MISSOURI.

The beginnings of this family start with a John Newhouse or perhaps John Anthony Newhouse in the early 1740s in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. The first record of any Newhouse I could find in Pennsylvania was a deed record for John Newhouse recorded in 1742. Then there is the burial record of an Anthon Neuhaus August 24, 1756, age 96 years, in Augustus ground (grounds of the Augustus Evangelical Lutheran Church of Trappe, Montgomery County (then Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania). Trappe is a few miles northwest of Norristown. Trappe was an early community that developed as settlers moved upstream along the Schuykill River. A week after the Anthony Neuhaus burial, a John Newhouse will was filed in Philadelphia County by Jacob Unstat and John Hall August 31, 1756. Is this a coincidence or is this the same person? German men of this time period typically went by their middle name with a first name of John, Johannes, Johann, or Hans. For many reasons there is doubt that John Newhouse was 96 years old when he died. He was likely about 70 to 76 years old. A man 96 years old would likely have outlived most or all of his children and would likely have grandchildren worthy of mention in his will. None were mentioned. The persons identified in John’s will were three wives, five children and one stepson. The first wife was Agnes by whom John had a son, Antony. The second wife was Magdalene and she had children John, Magdalene and Euphronica. The third wife was Anna Mary and she had children Eva and stepson, Valentine. Only the descendants of John’s son, Anthony, are known.
ANTHONY NEWHOUSE
was born between 1710 and 1725 place unknown. He died between August 6, 1762 and November 1763 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania (perhaps Germantown). His wife was MARY. She was born in the same time period as Anthony and died between November 5 and December 18, 1763 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She filed a will in Philadelphia County in which she identifies six children of which none had reached the age of majority. The oldest son was JACOB NEWHOUSE and he received the Family Bible in Mary’s will. He was baptized 3 Jun 1744 in the Abington Presbyterian Church, Abington Township. He married Margaret in Pennsylvania. The other three sons in estimated order of birth were DAVID, JONATHAN, and ISAAC. There were two daughters named in Mary’s will. They were SUSANNAH and SARAH. Anthony Newhouse was a papermaker operating a mill on Trout Run from 1744 to February 18, 1752 when he sold out to Jacob Hagy for a fortune. He bought a townhouse in Philadelphia and remained there the rest of his life. Anthony had a close business relationship with Benjamin Franklin and supplied paper to Benjamin for his printing business in Philadelphia while Benjamin sold rags for papermaking to Anthony. Anthony was contracted by the Province of Pennsylvania to make paper money (at Benjamin’s urging). He also received a cash prize from Pennsylvania for revealing a counterfeiting operation. We have information on all four of Anthony’s sons and Anthony’s daughter, Susannah.

I. SUSANNAH NEWHOUSE was born about 1743. She married ADAM WALKER November 8, 1762 in Pennsylvania. Nothing further known.

II. SARAH NEWHOUSE was born before 1760. Nothing further known.

III. JACOB NEWHOUSE was born about 1744 and married MARGARET probably between 1770 and 1776 in Pennsylvania. Evidently Jacob continued to be involved in the paper making business with Jacob Hagy many years after his father’s death. In the tax book for Lower Merion Township, Philadelphia County for September and October 1780, entries show that Jacob Newhouse and Jacob Hagy were taxed on the value of a paper machine they evidently owned together. The only child of Jacob’s we are reasonably sure of is John Newhouse. Early census records indicate Jacob and Margaret had a large family.
A. JOHN NEWHOUSE was born about 1780 in Pennsylvania. He was baptized (as John Friderich Neuhaus, parents Jacob & Margurit) December 8, 1780 in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Ardmore, Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (In 1780 this area was still part of Philadelphia County). John married JANE about 1800 or a little before probably in Pennsylvania. John was in the 1810 census for Fannett Township, Franklin County, Pennsylvania; the 1820 census for Harrison County, Ohio; and the 1830 census for Knox Township, Holmes County, Ohio. John and Jane had the following children: Margaret, Edward, Joseph, Mary and Jacob. There could have been other children.
1. MARGARET NEWHOUSE was born about 1801 in Pennsylvania. She married THOMAS ORR June 24, 1819 in Harrison County, Ohio. Thomas was born about 1797 in Pennsylvania. This family was in the 1850 census for Case Township, Richland County, Ohio with nine children. There were likely two or three older children that had left the household by this time whose identities are not known. The nine Orr children (all born in Ohio) were Edward (born abt. 1826), John (born abt. 1829), Thomas (born abt. 1832), Elizabeth (born abt. 1834), Abram (born abt. 1838), James (born abt. 1840), Charles (born abt. 1841), Martha (born abt. 1843) and Henry (born abt. 1845).
2. EDWARD NEWHOUSE was born about 1802 in Pennsylvania. He married MATILDA FRAZIER December 8, 1825 in Holmes County, Ohio. He married second MARTHA McCOY April 4, 1838 in Holmes County, Ohio. Martha was born about 1807 in Pennsylvania. Edward apparently went to live in Iowa Territory in the early 1830s and returned to Holmes County, Ohio about 1838/1840. In 1843 he went to live in Marshall County, Indiana. Edward and Matilda had the following children: Thomas (born abt. 1826 Ohio), Mary Ann (born abt. 1827 Ohio), John Newhouse (born abt. 1829 Ohio), Cyrus (born abt. 1831 Ohio), Amanda (born abt. 1833 Ohio) and Matilda (born abt. 1834 Ohio). Cyrus and Matilda died in Iowa Territory. Edward and Martha had the following children: Alexander (born abt 1839 Ohio, married Alvina), James (born abt. 1841 Ohio), Wilbur (born abt. 1841/1843 Indiana or Ohio), Clement (born abt. 1844 Indiana, married Lavinia), Selden (born abt. 1846 Indiana, married Mary M.) and Elizabeth (born abt. 1848 Indiana).
3. JOSEPH NEWHOUSE is a person about which we know little. He was a witness on the deed for his father when he sold land in 1835 in Holmes County to Martha McCoy.
4. MARY NEWHOUSE was born about 1803 in Pennsylvania. She married ABRAHAM JOHNSON September 14, 1824 in Harrison County, Ohio. Abraham was born about 1793 in New Jersey. This family was in the 1830 census for Nottingham Township, Harrison County, Ohio and the 1840 census for Orange Township, Carroll County, Ohio however the age categories of the children seem to not fit what we know from the 1850 census. It could be that there was at least another son and daughter between the births of Franklin and William. Abraham and family were in the 1850 census for Wheeling Township, Belmont County, Ohio. Abraham was a farmer. The ten Johnson children (all born Ohio) that are known are Son born about 1825, John born about 1827, Franklin born about 1828, Margaret born about 1833, William born about 1837, Mary born about 1838, Elizabeth born about 1840, Abraham born about 1844, Sarah born about 1846 and Moses born about 1849.
5. JACOB NEWHOUSE was born about 1806 in Pennsylvania. He married IVEA L. CASEY December 1831 in Holmes County, Ohio. She was the daughter of Peter Casey, the first Judge of Holmes County. She was born about 1808 in Ohio. This family went to Iowa in the mid 1840s and they were in the 1850 census for Lee County, Iowa. Jacob and Ivea had the following children: Casey born about 1833 in Ohio, John H. born about 1835 in Ohio, Melinda R. born about 1838 in Ohio, Sarah E. born about 1840 in Ohio, Benjamin born about 1845 in Ohio and Unavista born about 1848 in Iowa.

IV. DAVID NEWHOUSE was the fourth child of ANTHONY NEWHOUSE (the papermaker) & MARY.
David Newhouse was born about 1746 in Pennsylvania. Very little is known about David. He appears on the list of tithables for Loudoun County, Virginia from 1770 to 1775. He also appears on a parish register in Loudoun County during this time frame. No mention of him after this time. There is reason to believe that he served and died in the Revolutionary War. John Richey Newhouse in his History of the Newhouse Family stated that his great grandfather died in the Revolutionary War. He stated that he was from Loudoun County, Virginia and that he served at least part of his service in the Virginia Navy. One of the Histories of Delaware County, Ohio stated that he served in the Revolutionary War and died of camp fever. HOWEVER these sources gave his name as Anthony Newhouse. The only problem with this family lore is that David Newhouse was the only adult Newhouse living in Loudoun County, Virginia during the Revolutionary War. All the children attributed to this Anthony Newhouse did live in Loudoun County. The name of the spouse of this Newhouse Revolutionary War Veteran has never been discovered. John Richey Newhouse referred to her as a “Lady of English descent”. David Newhouse had five children, all born in Loudoun County, Virginia (Jonathan may have been born elsewhere). Their names were Jonathan who was born March 3, 1767; Isaac who was born 1770; Anthony who was born February 10, 1772; Eura who was born 1774 and David who was born January 20, 1777. The five children of David Newhouse all eventually migrated to Ohio in the early 1800s. Son Anthony was the first to leave Loudoun County about 1800 for Pickaway County, Ohio. Next was David in 1804 or 1805. He came to Columbiana County, Ohio. Isaac left in about 1806 and also came to Pickaway County. He may have lived in Pennsylvania for a short time. Much later the family of Jonathan Newhouse left Loudoun County for Hocking County, Ohio in 1817 or 1818. The last to leave in 1820 were the Eura Newhouse and John Jackson family that came to Hocking and then Pickaway County. Before too many years these families spread to Delaware, Union and Muskingum Counties in Ohio.
A. JONATHAN NEWHOUSE and family came to Hocking County, Ohio in about 1817 or 1818. He married M. E. COPELAND, daughter of Andrew Copeland, about 1789 probably in Loudoun County but it could have been an adjacent County. She was the mother of all his children. Jonathan married second SUSANNAH MILLER (probably a widow) August 28, 1828 in Muskingum County. Jonathan died November 15, 1848 in Adams Township, Muskingum County, Ohio where he is buried in the Bethesda Church Cemetery. Jonathan’s children were Andrew, Amos, Ann or Nancy (aka as Mary Ann in some branches of this family), Sarah, Eura, John, Hannah and Mary Polly.

Mr Strother owned and operated the largest printing establishment in the south. Because he did the Confederate printing for North Carolina, General Sherman caused the plant to be destroyed. Left penniless, the family moved to Illinois and later to Kansas. With his sons, he established newspapers both in Galena and Abilene. The Abilene Reflector continued many years after Mr. Strother's death. He and his wife are buried in Abilene, Kansas. This writer found the Strother family mentioned in the publication, Virginia Genealogies, where the connection to the Newhouse family is noted. Possibly this is the same Strother Family associated with the Newhouses in Fauquier County, Virginia.
2’ WILLIAM NEWHOUSE died young.

Nancy was the daughter of SAMUEL & SARAH ANN (MCGEE) NEWHOUSE. Samuel served in the Civil War. He sold his farm in Scioto Township and moved to Illinois near the town of Quincy. He bought land there and became quite wealthy. Nancy was born 27 Sep 1839 in Scioto Township and died 23 Jan 1922 again probably in Adams County, Illinois although this is not known for sure. Much of this information comes from their family bible for which the following story is told. In May 1985, Verne Newhouse of Stone Mountain, Georgia noticed an ad in the Genealogical Helper for a Newhouse Bible. A Mrs Newbern of Florence, Oregon had picked it up at a flea market and was looking for someone of the proper family to claim it. Verne called immediately but the bible was claimed by Mrs LaVonne Tidball, who was of a closer relationship. However Mrs Newbern made copies of those pages of the bible having family information on them. Verne then sent copies of those pages to this writer. This bible weighed nine pounds. The title page of the bible reads "THE HOLY BIBLE containing The Authorized Edition Of The New Testament, A. D. 1611 and The Revised Version Of A. D. 1881 Arranged In Parallel Columns; with Complete Concordance embracing every passage of scripture in the Largest Editions, Apocrypha And Psalms." This bible was published by A. J. Holman & Co. of No. 1222 Arch Street, Philadelphia, 1885.

Patten, Minister of God. (The Newhouse family history gives the date of marriage as 7 Oct 1885 but that is wrong since the actual marriage certificate is in the Family Bible). John was born 18 Nov 1862 and died 28 Oct 1935. According to the Family History John and Olive moved to Creston, Iowa (Union County).

7. HANNAH NEWHOUSE was born about 1803 in Loudoun County, Virginia and she died 12 Oct 1887 in Loudoun County. She is buried in the Ketoctin Baptist Church Cemetery in Loudoun County. She married SAMUEL BEANS 22 Sep 1842 (or 22 Sep 1834 depending on which record you look at) in Loudoun County. She is referred to as Harriet in her marriage record but she is Hannah in the census records, on her gravestone, on her death certificate, and in the John Richey Newhouse Family History. On her gravestone are the words "Hannah Beans, wife of Samuel". Hannah was the second wife of Samuel. He previously had married Pleasant Adams 8 Apr 1823. In the 1850 census of Loudoun County Hannah is shown as 45 years old (census taken on 6 Sep 1850) and in the 1880 census she is shown as 77 years old (census taken 7 Jun 1880). The 1850 census lists Samuel as a farmer, age 47. His children were Charles, age 25; Richard, age 15 and Jonathan, age 5. From the ages it can be assumed that Richard(?) and Jonathan were the only children of Samuel and Hannah. In the 1880 census of Jefferson Township, Loudoun County, Hannah is listed as a widow living in the household of her son, Jonathan. Jonathan is shown as age 36, single, occupation farmer, born in Virginia and mother & father born in Virginia. Hannah is listed as keeping house and she reports her mother and father as both born in Virginia. Also in the 1880 census in the household of Jonathan and Hannah is a servant, John W. Love, age 13, white, male who was born in Virginia and whose mother and father were born in Virginia. Hannah's death record in Loudoun County reports her death date as 12 Oct 1887, age 84, death of a spinal affection, parents names left blank, husband Samuel, death reported by son, Jonathan.
a. RICHARD BEANS born 1835.
b. JONATHAN N. BEANS (4 Sep 1844-19 Mar 1921) born and died in Loudoun County, Virginia. His occupation was farming. He married LAURA VIRGINIA SCATTERDAY 5 Mar 1894 in Loudoun County, Virginia. Laura was the widow of SAMUEL P. LOVE. She was the daughter of AARON SCATTERDAY & ANN MATILDA BEATTY. Laura was born 4 Dec 1858 in Loudoun County, Virginia. She died 13 Jan 1943 in Loudoun County. Jonathan and Laura are buried in the Hillsboro City Cemetery in Loudoun County.
1’ SAMUEL BEANS, JR. born January 1895 in Loudoun County, Virginia. He married GERTRUDE WILLINGHAM October 16, 1920 in Loudoun County by J. N. Mast. She was born about 1900 in Loudoun County, Virginia. Gertrude was the daughter of WILLIAM & SARAH WILLINGHAM. Samuel was a farmer.

Clayton was the son of WILLIAM & SARAH WILLINGHAM. The couple were living in Purcellville at the time of their marriage. Clayton was a farmer.
4’ LAURA M. BEANS was born about 1904 in Loudoun County.
8. MARY "POLLY" NEWHOUSE (25 Oct 1806-11 Mar 1867) probably born in Loudoun County, Virginia. She married BENJAMIN GIBERSON 19 Feb 1829 in Hocking County, Ohio. Sometime between 1843 and 1850 they moved to Jersey County, Illinois. In 1860 this family was in Macoupin County, Illinois. As far as I know this family was the last of the Newhouses in Hocking County. The Giberson family was from Monmouth County, New Jersey. Benjamin was born there about 1800. The name Giberson also appears as Gibison in the early records. (For more information on the Gibison Family see the book "History of the Hocking Valley".) In Benjamin and Mary's marriage record the name is spelled as Gibeson. They were married by LEVI McCOLLUM, Justice of the Peace. The town of Gibisonville was laid out by Samuel and William Gibison. Very likely Samuel was Benjamin's father or uncle. Mary probably died in Macoupin County, Illinois where she is buried in the Shaws Point Cemetery. Her tombstone inscription, "Mary Newhouse Giberson (Born in Virginia - (d/J&ME Newhouse, w/Benjamin Giberson) ........ Oct 25, 1806 Mar 11, 1867." The children of Benjamin Giberson & Mary Newhouse as listed in the 1850 census of Jersey County, IL and the 1860 census of Macoupin County, IL.
a. JAMES GIBERSON born ca 1833 in Hocking County, OH.
b. JONATHAN GIBERSON born ca 1834 in Hocking County, OH.
c. BENJAMIN GIBERSON born ca 1839 in Hocking County, OH. In the Shaws Point Cemetery in Macoupin County, IL is a gravestone for Ben ...... 44 years 8 months 26 days Dec 16, 1883. Same Benjamin? I think so.
d. MARY GIBERSON born ca 1842 in Hocking County, OH.
e. SARAH GIBERSON born ca 1843 in Hocking County, OH.
f. WILLIAM GIBERSON born ca 1848 in Jersey County, IL.








B. ISAAC NEWHOUSE, second child of David Newhouse, was born ca 1770 in Loudoun County, Virginia. He was married to ELIZABETH RICKEY ca 1790 possibly in Loudoun County. Elizabeth was of Welsh descent. Isaac and his family came to Pickaway County, Ohio ca 1806 and settled in Salt Creek Township. The History of Pickaway County, Ohio by Van Cleaf refers to the Newhouse family as coming from Pennsylvania so it is possible that Isaac and family lived somewhere in PA for a time before coming to Ohio. Isaac appears in the 1788 personal property tax list for Loudoun County, Virginia in the household of WILLIAM EVANS. Perhaps William Evans was the person who raised Isaac after his father died in the Revolutionary War.
Isaac was a farmer. He died in 1850 and Elizabeth died February 15, 1853, age 83 years and 7 months (making her birthday June 1769). According to the 1850 census of Pickaway County, Elizabeth was born in Virginia. Elizabeth was buried in the Whisler Cemetery, Salt Creek Township. Her tombstone inscription is "Newhouse, Elizabeth w. of Isaac d Feb 15 1853 age 83 yrs." Isaac is probably buried there also in an unmarked grave. Their children are indicated by the below roman numerals. Indentures indicate the following generations.

1. MARY NEWHOUSE (1791-1829) born in Loudoun County, VA. She married HUGH STALL 2 Oct 1819 in Pickaway County by Justice of the Peace, David Kinnear. She died in 1829. Children are not known at this time.

2. ABRAHAM NEWHOUSE (30 Oct 1793-1870) born in Loudoun County, VA. He married ANN (NANCY) STEWARD VICKERS on 30 Dec 1815 in Pickaway County. Abraham (Abram) bought land in Hocking County in 1817 and sold it in 1824 (at least part of it) and returned to Pickaway County in 1825. His wife is identified as Nancy in the deed records in Hocking County but she is Ann in her marriage record and the census records. She was born 1 Dec 1798 in Maryland. He was a veteran of the War of 1812, a private in the Company of Capt. Rezin Shelby. Abraham appears in the census records of Pickaway County from 1830-1870 and in the 1820 census of Hocking County.
The first Newhouse in Hocking County was Abraham (see also the family of Jonathan Newhouse, 1767-1848) who according to the Chillicothe Land Office acquired 155.48+ acres 12 Feb 1817 in Range 18, Township 12, Section 4, SW quarter. All my information on the Chillicothe Land Office comes from the book "Ohio Lands, Chillicothe Land Office" by Marie Taylor Clark, C. G. published June 1984. The above date is confirmed by a response to a letter I wrote to the State Land Office of Ohio. Thomas A. Burke, Supervisor of the Ohio Land Office wrote to me "I am pleased that you wrote requesting information from the State Land Office. Vicki Porter of the staff searched the index cards and records books for the surnames Newhouse and Gibison of Hocking and Pickaway Counties. Unfortunately, we could not locate a Amos and Andrew Newhouse…..Abraham Newhouse - Range 18, Township 12, Section 4, Part of Section: West Half of the Southwest Quarter, 79.41 Acres, Date of Entry: February 12, 1817. Land Office Where Entered: Chillicothe. Located now in Hocking County, Laurel Township, Ohio River Survey, Page 353." There is obvious disagreement between the two sources on how much land Abraham bought. Did he buy the whole SW Quarter or just half of it?
From the deed records in the Hocking County Courthouse Abraham Newhouse bought 80 acres from J. J. Frazier on Aug 5, 1820 for $200. This land was in range 18, Township 12, Section 10, the east half of the NW quarter. On Jan 13, 1824 Abraham Newhouse and wife, Nancy, sold nine acres to Cornelius Anderson in Range 18, Township 12, Section 10, part of the NW quarter. On March 26, 1824 Abraham and Nancy sold 78 acres to John Kinzer for $331. This land was in range 18, Township 12, Section 10, part of the NW quarter. A further check is needed on the deed records because nowhere did I find where Abraham sold his land in the SW quarter of Section 4. Today most of the SW quarter of section 4 is part of the State of Ohio's Cantwell Cliffs scenic/recreation area. Abraham appears in the Hocking county tax records from 1820 to 1825.
The following memo or note was received by Verne Newhouse of Stone Mountain, GA from his father, Verne B. Newhouse. This memo concerns the family of Abraham Newhouse.

Beginning of memo.
Seattle, Washington
June 14, 1977.
When we lived in Soda Springs, Idaho, a man came by the house and said his name was Newhouse. I did not write down his name, guess I thought I would remember it. He wondered if we were from the same family: and gave a few names of his ancestors. They sounded familiar, and I said 'probably'. He said they had a family Bible with all the names in it, and he would send it to me.
A short time later, I received three sheets of a small tablet with the following information in it. The information is quite incomplete, but this is it.
John Newhouse was born in Piqua County, Ohio on the 25th of September, 1827. He was the son of Abram and Nancy Newhouse. ("Grandpa told me this about 4 weeks before he passed away"). I wrote the other information just as it was spelled in the Bible.

As follows:

The Father and Mother of Grandpa was:
Abram Newhouse - Born October 30th, 1793
Nancy Newhouse - born December 1, 1798

Their Children:
Elizabeth Newhouse was born December 21, 1816.

Mary Newhouse was born February 26, 1818

Sarah Newhouse was born February 29, 1820

Isaac Newhouse was born April 23, 1821

Hanah Newhouse was born April 4, 1823 (spelled "Hannah" in our
bound volume on Page 10.)
Plesant Newhouse was born March 13, 1825 "Pleasant"

John Newhouse was born September 25, 1827

Amos Newhouse was born September (no date) 1833

Jane Newhouse was born Octobre 31, 1834

Elan Newhouse was born April (no date), 1837

(Added Note -- I wrote this just as it was in the Bible only I put "e" to the last of "Newhouse" -- that letter wasn't on the last of the name in the Bible.)
This is my comment: I copied it as he wrote it. And I am

bound volume.
End of memo.

The bound volume referred to above is The History of the Newhouse Family 1740-1915 by John Richey Newhouse. Attached to this memo was a note from Verne B. to his son as follows " Dear Bud: This is what you referred to in your letter. And the man who came to see me, was the grandson of John Newhouse, born in 1827.
The Genealogical Chart in our Bound Volume on Page 6: Anthony I then the second son of his is Isaac Newhouse born in 1770. And his Second child is Abram who married Nancy, and is told of very briefly (though Her name is not given) on pages 9 and 10. And that record stops where the date of Abram's death is given."
The dates in the above letter are the only source for the exact birthdates of Abraham's children although the year of birth can be closely approximated from census records in most instances.

(Monnett Hall was torn down in 1978 amid some controversy, it was on the National Register of historic buildings).

Mary Monnett was of medium height, dark hair, wavy and abundant, voice soft and low, face fair and lighted by large wonderful blue eyes, whose very glance seemed an appeal for humanities uplift. Her aim was to assist to an education, girls of limited financial resources. She was noted for her gifts to the Church and University. She inherited a large estate and possessed noble aspirations for a useful life. But unfortunately her life was clouded in sorrow. She trusted others to handle her wealth. They failed financially and left her without financial resources. After her marriage they lived in Marion, Ohio; Brooklyn, New York and Philadelphia, PA. After her husband's death in 1880 she went to Leavenworth, Kansas. She died at Ossawatomi, Kansas July 30, 1885. Her remains were returned to Ohio where she was buried beside her husband in the cemetery near Marion, Ohio.

C. ANTHONY NEWHOUSE was born February 10, 1772 in Loudoun County, Virginia and died July 17, 1851 in Scioto Township, Delaware County, Ohio. He married NANCY COONS, daughter of JOHN & HANNA COONS, March 28, 1799 at Old Red Stone Fort, Fayette County, Pennsylvania.

The history of this family has been extensively covered in the "NEWHOUSE FAMILY HISTORY, 1740-1915" published by John Richey Newhouse. Material was also taken from an early draft of this history done in 1897 and a Richey Family History both also written by John Richey Newhouse. A partial update to the published history was done in 1967 by Margaret Bouic and Pauline Newhouse. This material is also included here. Margaret Bouic has continued to collect material on the Newhouses and other families of Delaware and Union Counties in Ohio. This material is also a source for what appears in this document. Anyone who has done a family history on Delaware/Union County families owes a great debt to Margaret Bouic.

John Richey Newhouse wrote the following of his grandfather, Anthony. "Anthony Newhouse, the third son of the writer's great grandfather, was born in Louden County, Va., February 10, 1772. He was four years old when his father enlisted in the Revolutionary War, and 8 years old when his father died in the service. He remained with his mother and assisted in raising the family until 1784 (should be 1794) when he enlisted in the army ordered out by General Washington for the suppression of the Whisky Insurrection in western Pennsylvania. Anthony Newhouse went with the army as far as Fort Pitt, now Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
He remained with the army six months and the insurrection being suppressed, he was discharged. He then returned to Louden County, where he remained six months. From there he went to Old Red Stone Fort in Fayette county, Pennsylvania. He then became acquainted with NANCY COONS and married her March 28, 1799. From this place Anthony Newhouse and wife, his father-in-law, JOHN COONS and family, and a man by the name of Henry Moore and his wife, all moved to the Territory of Ohio. They settled on Scippo Creek which is in the present limits of Pickaway county, Ohio, Salt Creek Township. They moved there in the early part of 1800, settled on a place formerly occupied by the Indians. The nearest settlement was Circleville, 13 miles, and Lancaster, 18 miles. They went from Fayette county, Pennsylvania, to the Ohio River in Virginia. There Anthony Newhouse and John Coons rode their horses, driving their stock before them. They took what was called the Ganes (should be Zanes) Track, a road cut out from Wheeling, W. Va., to Chillicothe, Ohio, by a man by the name of Ebeneezer Gane (Zane). For the cutting out of this road Gane (Zane) received from the government three sections of land. The family of Anthony Newhouse with the other families and their goods went down the Ohio river until they came to the mouth of the Scioto river. There they transferred to the old Piergan boat and went up the Scioto to Chillicothe, where Anthony Newhouse and John Coons met them.
From there they went to Scippo creek, now in Pickaway county, Ohio. They built their cabins close together, it being a wilderness, and they were visited almost daily by the Indians.
There had been no survey made at that time. The land was all government land. Pickaway county was the first county organized in the State.
The first year these families subsisted on corn brought from the Ohio river on pack horses. Deer, bear, wild turkey and wild honey being very plentiful, they got along very well. There were no mills in the country to grind their corn. They made their corn meal as follows: they sawed a log off about 2 feet long and about 18 inches in diameter, burned out one end and dug out until they made what they called a mortar, they then fastened an iron wedge in the end of a stick. With it they pounded the corn in the mortar until it was fine enough for meal. They then fanned the meal with a turkey wing, and it was then ready to be made into bread.
The first year Mrs. Moore died, and Anthony Newhouse and John Coons made a coffin for her out of a Blue lAsh tree. They cut off a log and split it into slabs, then hewed the slabs nicely, placed them in the ground for a coffin, lowered the body into the coffin, placing a slab over the top and filled up the grave. This was the first white person buried in that part of the country.
While Anthony Newhouse and wife lived in Pickaway county, they had the following children:
William, Sarah, Elizabeth, Mary, John, Isaac, Margaret and Eura.
In 1812, Anthony Newhouse enlisted in the second war with Great Brittain from Pickaway county, in the Company of which John Boggs was Captain. This Company was in command of General Tupper. They were sent to Fort Defiance, Ohio, against the Indians. General Winchester was there with his troops from Kentucky. General Harrison was Commander in Chief.
From Fort Defiance, General Tupper went to the town of Wapakoneta, and from there to Urbana, Ohio, where they were discharged.
On their way in the night the Indians stuck a Tommyhock in the thigh of Anthony Newhouse's horse. The horse was badly crippled. He led it back to Pickaway County, Ohio.
While living in Pickaway County, Anthony Newhouse had to go below Chillicothe to what was known as Tuppe Prairie to get seed for planting and sowing and also for hogs to start a herd of swine. He first made his trip for seed potatoes. He went to a man by the name of Henry Abrams, who gave him all the seed potatoes he needed, and also gave him two of the nicest pigs in his lot. He carried the potatoes and pigs on horseback fourteen miles back home. In two years he had all the hogs he needed.
Wolves and panthers were numerous and made night hideous with their screams and howling.
Sometime before the war of 1812-14 a large party of Indians passed through the settlement from east to west, a number of ponies being loaded with lead. Where they got it was unknown, but it was supposed they were preparing for the coming war.
In 1814 Anthony Newhouse sold his farm of one hundred and sixty acres in Pickaway county to Henry Holland and went to Chillicothe and bought 200 acres in Scioto Township, Delaware County, Ohio. He bought this land from Henry Massie and paid two dollars an acre.
After buying this land he went to see it. He walked from Pickaway county to Franklinton, now Columbus, Ohio, the first day, and the next forenoon to the Calls settlement, now Dublin, Ohio.
They advised him there not to go further for the reason that he could not cross Mill creek because of high water. But being young, strong and full of life, he determined to go on. He walked ten miles further north to the mouth of Mill creek-Bellpoint-and found its banks full and floating with slush and ice. It was beginning to get dark and the wolves were commencing to howl around him. To go back was ten miles to the first settlement, to go forward it was five miles to the next settlement. He determined to wade the creek. He cut a pole and using it for a brace started across the stream. The water came up to his arms but he got safely over. He had not left the water but a few minutes when his clothes commenced to freeze. He ran all the way to the Hushaw settlement, afterward Millville, now Warrensburg. In his pitiable condition he rushed to the door, reached forward to knock, but the hogs had rooted a deep hole right in front of the door and he slipped into the hole, fell against the door, burst it open and fell full length into the house, and frightened the old lady and children badly. They supposed it was Indians, the man of the house not being at home and it was just at the time there were so many raids. After an explanation Mrs. Hushaw let him warm and his clothes. He then walked up the river a half mile further to James McCume's, who kept a house of entertainment, where he staid all night. This was the house that Col. Richard M. Johnson was brought to after being wounded at the Battle of the Thames. He rested at this house one week before he was able to go to his home in Kentucky. Col. Richard M. Johnson became Vice President under President Martin Van Buren. The next day Anthony Newhouse went on up the river two and one-half miles to the residence of his brother-in-law, Michael Dilsaver. From there he went to see the land he had bought. He then returned to Pickaway county. This was in the month of January, 1814.
The British soldiers who were taken prisoners by Commodore Perry on Lake Erie were marched through the Newhouse settlement about this time on their way to Chillicothe, where they were guarded until they were exchanged. the prisoners and guards numbered about seven hundred. They stopped at Mr. Newhouse's home to get water and rest.
In May, 1814, Anthony Newhouse and family started to move to Scioto township, Delaware county. They brought with them their cattle and three head of horses. After he started he fell in company with a colored man who was going to Franklinton with a four-horse team loaded with corn and a hen coop on top of the load of corn filled with chickens. The colored man persuaded Anthony Newhouse to cross the river two miles below Franklinton. He claimed he knew of a good ford and offered to take the children with him. The children were put on the load of corn and started across the river. by the time the front wheels were in the water the lead horses were swimming. There was no turning back so the four horses, wagon and all swam the river. The wagon bed raised out of the standards, barely holding to the hind standards, when they struck the opposite bank. The hen coop floated off and down the river with the chickens squawking.
Anthony Newhouse and wife stood on the bank unable to render any assistance. They took the children back across the river in a canoe, and then went up the river to Franklinton and crossed in a ferry boat. In two days travel they reached the Hushaw settlement, now Warrensburg, where they remained until after harvest.
Anthony Newhouse farmed some at this settlement and in August of the same year built a log cabin on his own land, one mile west of Millville, now Warrensburg, and moved there in the fall.
That fall the entire family was afflicted with chills and fever but all recovered. Anthony Newhouse cleared two acres of ground, sowed it in wheat and raised a good crop and it made good bread.
The next year he sowed the same ground in wheat. It produced a good crop but proved to be what is called a sick wheat. There was something strange about it. When it was made into bread and eaten it made the person eating it dreadfully sick. No kind of stock would eat it and even hogs would not touch it. The same wheat when sowed again would raise a good crop and the wheat would make good healthy bread.
While living in Scioto township, Delaware County, Ohio, the following children were born to them:

Elijah, Samuel and Anthony.

The first fall he farmed in Scioto township the Wyandotte Indians from Upper Sandusky stole his horses. He never recovered them.
In 1825 he made a trip through the west. While traveling among the Indians he found a family of Newhouses, a brother and two sisters. They proved to be his cousins. The brother was a Baptist minister by the name of John Newhouse. The settlement where they lived was called Flat Rock.
Anthony Newhouse and his wife Nancy Coons Newhouse, continued to live on the old home farm in Scioto township until they were removed by death.
Anthony Newhouse died July 17, 1851, aged 79 years, 5 months and 7 days.
Nancy Coons Newhouse died April 21, 1863, aged 80 years.
These aged people were devoted members of the Methodist Episcopal church from early youth. In the early history of the country their house was a place of public worship. In 1840 they were largely instrumental in building one of the first log churches in Scioto township. They were buried in the Newhouse Cemetery on the Old Home farm. The history of Anthony Newhouse has been quite full here to show the toils and privations of early pioneer life."

In a letter to Pauline Newhouse , Jan. 1963, he describes his ranch: "It's 2000 acres surrounded on 2 sides by the Sacremento River. There is also a flat topped mountain with about 20 acres in a lake there. It is strictly a wet weather lake as all that fills it is rain water. It's about half-full now and sometimes almost covered with geese, ducks, and wild swans. There is only a very bad jeep road up to the mountain and impassable now, so the wild life is almost to itself up there. Four days ago I rode across it to a salt box on the river and packed some salt on another horse on top, in one bunch I counted 50 deer. It was almost like a herd of cattle. Also on the lake my count made over 200 big swans...... Of course the deer sure compete with the cattle for feed.....We have 40 acres under irrigation and by next fall will have 40 more ready for irrigation and in another year will have 20 more ready so it will make near 100 acres of green feed in the summer. Of course our water for irrigation comes from the Sacramento River. Since Shasta Dam is only 30 miles up river and it impounds 2 1/2 million acre feet of water the bottom part of the lake is always cold and accordingly our river water never gets above 55 and not too much below that in winter." He mentions the neighbors fishing for salmon in the Sacramento River.

He was taken prisoner and was in Libby Prison and then he was taken to Bell Isle where it is said that he starved to death.
His service record shows that he enlisted July 31, 1862 at Napoleon, Henry County, Ohio for three years in Company B, 100th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The muster roll of 1 September 1862 shows the Regiment at Camp Toledo, Ohio. The company muster roll of Jan and Feb 1863 shows David Howard as a corporal.

When David's company was mustered out at Greensboro, NC 20 Jun 1865 David was listed as died in rebel prison, date unknown. I assume that later captured Confederate records gave the date of David's death (November 9, 1863).

This family was in the 1870 census for Lancaster County, Nebraska. The Newhouse Family History stated that David and Nancy died in Nebraska.

E. DAVID NEWHOUSE, fifth and last child of David Newhouse was born January 20, 1777 in Loudoun County, Virginia. He married HANNAH BEANS February 2, 1803 in Loudoun County. She was born October 2, 1778. According to the Newhouse Family History 1740-1915, David lived in Loudoun County until the year 1800 when he came to the Territory of Ohio in company with a family he had spent a good many of his younger days with. Since his marriage record is in Loudoun County after this time he either returned to Loudoun County to be married or the date given in the history was inaccurate. According to the census data and death record, David's oldest son, Jefferson, was born June 1803 in Virginia. Therefore I would estimate that David came to Ohio in about 1804/5.
In an earlier handwritten journal on the Newhouse Family History done in 1897, John Richey Newhouse stated that "David Newhouse was the youngest child of Grand Father Newhouse being born in 1776. After his father died in the army his mother let him go to live with a neighbour who moved to Columbiana County O. in 1800. David Newhouse going along with them."
Continuing from the History of the Newhouse Family about David and Hannah "They endured all the privations, trials and hardships incident to pioneer life, passing through Indian wars and the second war with Great Britian. He came to Ohio when it was a wilderness, inhabited only by Indians and wild beasts. He helped to make the wilderness blossom as the rose." David died February 13, 1857 and Hannah died January 13, 1846. Both are buried in Cool Springs (Devil's Den) Cemetery, Fairfield Township, Columbiana County, Ohio.

He married ELIZABETH (BETSY) FARMER April 7, 1831 (by Samuel Hardman JP) in Columbiana County. She was born 19 Jan 1812 (date computed from tombstone) in Columbiana County. She died 1 Sep 1869 (age 57Y 8M 13D) and is buried next to Isaiah. Elizabeth was the daughter of THOMAS & JERUSHA CALDWELL FARMER (They are also buried in the Church Hill Cemetery). Isaiah was a farmer all his life in Elkrun Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. Isaiah later married REBECCA DILDINE June 11, 1870 (by A. C. Hanger, min) in Columbiana County.
The Church Hill Christian Church & Cemetery is indeed on a hill reachable from a rough dirt drive that leads south from Church Hill Rd (CR 894) just before the intersection with CR 796. The cemetery was well cared for. Next to it was what appeared to me to be the abandoned Christian Church still with pews and a piano. The last burial in this cemetery was in 1914. This I saw on a trip to Columbiana County in July 1984.
a. MARY NEWHOUSE born between 1842 and 1845 in Columbiana County, Ohio. Married JOHN FINK at Poland, Ohio. In the 1880 census of Elkrun Township Mary is shown as age 48 (single) taking care of her father. So it is likely that her marriage to John was a late marriage and that they had no children.

Mabel moved to San Diego, California in 1913 and made one visit to Ohio in 1947. Before moving to California she had lived in Leetonia and Salem. Mabel took care of her mother until she died. It was then that she moved to California. Henry Crawford was her childhood sweetheart but her parents considered her to young to get married. After Henry became a widower they became reacquainted and married.
Mabel evidently kept up a correspondence with her uncle, Simeon S. Newhouse. Two of these letters survived in the possession of Hazel Marie (Newhouse) Armstrong. Hazel remembers that Simeon was widely admired in the family.
Henry J. Crawford was born 16 Jun 1873 in Elkton, Columbiana County, OH. He was the son of WILLIAM & SALOME MEEHAN CRAWFORD. He was a teacher in Trumbull County schools where he was superintendent of Johnston schools for about seven years from 1901 to 1908.

He died in Van Nuys, California in May 1965.

Lee worked for the Buick Automobile Co. and eventually came to own the dealership. He made good money. They had a nice home but as time went on they spent the winters in Florida.

e. WILLIAM GEORGE NEWHOUSE (28 Apr 1840- 17 Jul 1913) born in Columbiana County, OH and died in Lisbon, OH. William is buried in the Lisbon Cemetery. He was educated in the common schools as the times afforded. He early adopted farming as his life work. He married first MARY ELIZABETH SWITZER 22 Feb 1862 (by Elderman D. V. Hyde) in Columbiana County, OH. I suspect that Mary Elizabeth died in childbirth having a son named Ellis.

They had twelve children of which three died in infancy. It is my belief that at least two of these children are buried next to their grandfather, Isaiah. To the left of Isaiah's stone is an infant's stone barely legible that reads IRA H. NEWHOUSE. Then in front of this stone is another barely legible stone that reads Infant son of W. G. and R. E. Newhouse died Mar 11, 1878. Elizabeth's stone is to the right of Isaiah's.
1’ ELLIS M. NEWHOUSE (25 Jul 1863-4 Apr 1888) born and died in Columbiana County, OH. Ellis' s birth date was computed from his tombstone which read "Died Apr 4, 1888, 24Y 8M. 10D." He is buried in the Church Hill Christian Church Cemetery in Elkrun Twp., Columbiana County marked by a common monument with his grandparents, SAMUEL & J. ELLEN SWITZER. I believe that Ellis was raised by his grandparents. In the 1880 census for Elkrun Twp. Ellis is listed in the household of Samuel & Ellen Switzer with the notation of "idiotic from birth".

f. SIMEON S. NEWHOUSE was born February 15, 1842 in Columbiana County, Ohio. Being raised on a farm, he attended the common district school and graduated from the high school at Lisbon at about the age of eighteen years. From early youth he was strongly impressed with the thought of the ministry as a life work, and as years increased this impression grew into the conviction: "Woe is me if I preach not the gospel." At the age of sixteen he made a public profession of faith in Christ as his Saviour and united with the Christian church at "Church Hill," the church of his parents, under the ministry of Rev. S. S. McKown (He was born 31 Aug 1822 in Jackson Co., WVA and died 7 Oct 1907, buried in the Church Hill Christian Church Cemetery with his wife Matilda A. (28 Aug 1828-18 Feb 1907). The next five years, from 1860-1865, the date of his graduation from the theological school at Meadville, Pennsylvania, the time was devoted to the single end of specializing for efficiency in his "high calling in Christ Jesus." Forty-two years were devoted to the work of the Christian ministry as follows: Felicity (Clermont County), Ohio, eighteen years; Jamestown, Ohio, seven years; Piqua, Ohio, seven years; Marion, Indiana, five years Lima, Ohio, five years. Under his ministry some thousands of persons were won to Christ, and the churches served were built up in strength and efficiency.
Though chiefly and faithfully employing his time and energies in the work of the gospel ministry, he was not indifferent to the general public welfare, having engaged earnestly and actively in the temperence and other reform movements, and served on various educational and religious boards. For ten years he served as a member and president of the Educational Society of Antioch College. Both at Felicity and Jamestown, Ohio, he served either as president or clerk. He was ordained to the ministry while yet a student, in 1862, in the Mount Vernon Christian Conference at Mount Vernon, Ohio. From Lima, Ohio, he was called to the chair of Homiletics and Biblical Literature in the Christian Biblical Institute (School of Theology) in connection with Defiance College at Defiance, Ohio, in 1907, which position he has held to the present time.
He was united in marriage to MARY ELENOR PARROTT, daughter of EDMUND and MARGARET (LAFEVER) PARROTT, Mount Vernon, Ohio, December 21, 1865. There is a biography of John S. Parrott, brother of Mary Elenor in the "History of Clermont County, Ohio". Simeon is mentioned several times in the History of Clermont County, Ohio. First he is mentioned in the records of the Clermont Teachers' Institute as an instructor at their 1875 meeting. He is next mentioned as elected to the Felicity Board of Education in 1876. Next he is mentioned in a short history of the Mount Pleasant Christian Church where it is stated that he had been pastor since 1866 and that the congregation has been so prosperous largely due to his faithful labors.

Catherine was born in Ohio. Anthony was a farmer. They are both buried in the New Baltimore Cemetery in Marlboro Township, Stark County, OH along with four of their children who died in infancy. Anthony's death date on his gravestone is 26 May 1908. The date in the History of the Newhouse Family History (above) is probably wrong. The dates on Catherine's stone are 15 May 1827-24 Aug 1900.

b. AMANDA NEWHOUSE was born June 1, 1848 in Columbiana County and died April 11, 1855 in Stark County; age 6 years, 10 months and 11 days. There is obviously a mistake on either this gravestone or Lorenzo's. Since Lorenzo did not appear in the 1850 census I would suspect that the mistake is on his stone (or how the reader of this cemetery read the stone). She is also buried in the New Baltimore Cemetery.

(Georgia Farmer provided me the identities of the other four children from the Lodge Family History). Joshua was a farmer. Mary died in 1904; Joshua in 1929.

V. JONATHAN NEWHOUSE was the fifth child of ANTHONY NEWHOUSE (the papermaker) & MARY. He was born about 1747 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania and married ANN SIMON, daughter of Mr. SIMON & JANE, probably about 1768 in Philadelphia or Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This family left Pennsylvania and moved to Fauquier County, Virginia sometime in 1777 or 1778. Jonathan died about 1799 in Fauquier County, Virginia. An allotment of dower recorded for Ann, widow of Jonathan Newhouse, was dated January 1800. Ann Newhouse died 1829 in Fauquier County. Her will was recorded 24 August 1829.

The second mention we have of Jonathan in Pennsylvania is from the Bucks County, Pennsylvania deed records. The following comes from Deed Book 14, Vol 2, page 223; ANN NEWHOUSE, grantor.

The third mention we have of Jonathan is from the book "Immigrants to Pennsylvania , 1641-1819" under Record of Servants and Apprentices bound and assigned before Hon. John Gibson, Mayor of Philadelphia, Dec. 5, 1772 - May 21, 1773. From page 222 - Mary Mitchell with consent of her father John Mitchell apprentice to Jonathan Newhouse of New Britian Twp. and his wife. (New Britian Township is in Bucks County, Pennsylvania)
The first mention we have of Ann is in the will of her mother, Jane, which was filed in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. It was signed 12 Mar 1777 and proved and recorded 8 Apr 1777. Jane Simon was of Hilltown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania at the time when her will was filed. Ann's siblings were Elizabeth and Mary Griffith.

We only know the identities of six children for Jonathan and Ann. There were probably more.

VI. ISAAC NEWHOUSE was the sixth child of ANTHONY NEWHOUSE (the papermaker) & MARY. He was born about 1749 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania and married CATHERINE VANPELT, daughter of DERRICK VANPELT & MARY BRITTON. Isaac and Catherine were married most likely in Bucks County, Pennsylvania around 1775. Isaac and Mary moved to Fauquier County, Virginia sometime between 1776 and 1779. Isaac purchased land in Wythe County, Virginia as early as March 3, 1775 but we don’t know if he actually lived on the land that early. He purchased land in Fauquier County in 1779 and was on the tax lists for Fauquier County in 1782 and 1787. It is not likely he traveled between Fauquier and Wythe Counties more than a few times if at all because of the distance. Isaac and family moved to Washington County, Virginia in 1803. It is believed that Isaac and Mary died in Washington County sometime around 1815. Isaac and Mary had six children that we know of.
A. ISAAC NEWHOUSE born about 1777 in Virginia. He married first MARTHA McCULLOCK June 21, 1798 in Washington County, Virginia. He married second WINIFRED SANDIFORD September 12, 1820 in Fayette County, Indiana.
1. ISAAC NEWHOUSE born about 1802 in Virginia. He married NANCY JAMES between 1820 and 1830 in Sullivan County, Tennessee. She was born August 18, 1800 in Sullivan County.
Isaac married Nancy probably sometime in the 1820s in Sullivan County, TN or in a surrounding county. Dorothy Ross's family information shows that Nancy was born 18 Aug 1800 in Sullivan Co., TN. She was the daughter of Walter James & Lydia Cox and the granddaughter of John James & Avarilla Standeford and William Cox & Ruth Bosley. In the 1850 census of Clinton, County besides their daughter, the household shows three persons: Eliza Berkley, age 17; William C. Stephans, age 16 & Russell I. Stephans, age 14 all born in Indiana. Were these friends or relatives of the family who lost their parents in Iowa? From the census we know this family lived for sometime in Iowa before going to Clinton County. His occupation is shown as farmer in the census.

In a letter from Dorothy Ross of Bristol, Virginia to Mrs Carl Newhouse of Westlake, Louisiana she writes the following. "In my family records I have an Isaac Newhouse married Nancy M. James born 1800. They were living in Sullivan County, Tennessee in 1830 when the census was taken, with no children. They moved from Sullivan county to Indiana and went to Rush Co. later settled in Clinton County. I have a letter they wrote her parents dated 21st December 1834 telling about where they had settled, 12 miles from Frankfort in Clinton County. There was no mention of children in the letter." Mrs. Ross was kind enough to send this writer a copy of that letter.

In three letters from Dorothy Ross to this writer the following excerpts are highlighted.
From letter dated 27 Aug 1987-"I have another old paper, badly deteriated that was an agreement between Isaac Newhouse and Walter James dated Dec. 18, 1817. Newhouse was to build onto Walter James present house. Was it the older Isaac? The younger Isaac met the young daughter Nancy (ages right) during this period?"
From letter dated 14 Sep 1987-"Looking through the 1797 tax list of Sullivan County, Tenn. I do not find Newhouse listed. In my notes I have copied Isaac Newhouse last land transaction, Deed book 9; page 94; sold 93 acres; date 23 June 1819."
From letter dated 18 Oct 1987-"...one of my son-in-laws have the Clarks, Jamesons, and McChecks in his family tree….The family records they have says John Newhouse was married twice. First to Nancy Jameson, second Hetty B. Vance. We have a book 'High on a Windy Hill' by Davis and McConell (Inscriptions of cemeteries in Washington Co., Va.) listed in that book from the Davis-Jameson Cemetery taken 9th April 1961 (located close to state roads 700 and 695)

A NEWHOUSE FAMILY OF BUCKS, WESTMORELAND and CLARION COUNTIES, PENNSYLVANIA and MORGAN COUNTY, OHIO.

This is the family of ANTHONY SMITH NEWHOUSE & ELIZABETH of Bucks and Westmoreland Counties, Pennsylvania. ANTHONY was a cabinetmaker. Anthony was born about 1751 and Elizabeth was born about 1749. Elizabeth was raised in the household of GEORGE & BARBARA SHAFER of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It is not known if she was an orphan or was related to the Shafers. Anthony and Elizabeth left Bucks County for Westmoreland County sometime between 1790 & 1800. Their children are listed under the following roman numerals.

Richard Kelanic Newhouse wrote the following on Anthony and Elizabeth. “Anthony Newhouse was a second generation German-American, born near Philadelphia about 1752. It is likely that his parents were members of the `Pastorius Colony’ of Germantown because local records list the name Neuhaus. He signed his name Antoni Neuhaus, which was transcribed on government documents as Anthony Newhouse. He enlisted in the Revolutionary War at Easton, PA, in 1775 for one year and ranked as a private. He marched on Boston and Quebec. He was discharged at Long Island in 1776. He lived in Durham Twp., Bucks Co. PA in 1778, married to Elizabeth, whose maiden name is unknown. Their first child, Elizabeth, was born about this time. Sometime between 1790 and 1797, he and some other neighbors migrated, by way of Forbes Road, with their families to Hempfield Twp. In Westmoreland Co., PA. German Lutheran Church records listed the family members by their German names. He had 4 or 5 boys and 2 or 3 girls. All children were born outside Westmoreland Co. He was a cabinetmaker in 1815. In 1818 he lived in a house rented from Jacob Linsenbigler for 30 dollars a year, at which time he applied for a Revolutionary War pension as an invalid. The pension, 8 dollars per month, was approved at Greensburg Courthouse in 1820. The entire application has been transcribed in a separate file. He died about 1825, probably close to 1822. He was not on the Tax Lists of 1825 for Westmoreland County. The grave site is unknown; however, one possibility is the Old German Cemetery in Greensburg, PA, which is now a parking lot covered over with asphalt. The names of those buried there are currently being investigated. His wife, Elizabeth, died a widow in 1827.”

I. GEORGE NEWHOUSE born about 1776 and died about 1790.

II. ELIZABETH NEWHOUSE born about 1778. She married JACOB LINSENBIGLER.

III. CATHERINE NEWHOUSE born ca 1776/1782. She married MICHAEL KATHERMAN.

IV. HENRY NEWHOUSE born about 1785. He married Elizabeth. Is this the same Henry Newhouse in Athens and Morgan Counties in Ohio? The 1850 census of Morgan County, Ohio shows Henry's age as 67 where he is living with his daughter and son-in-law, Elizabeth & Aaron Smith. Possibly two other daughters, Lucinda and Delilah.
A. ANTHONY NEWHOUSE born 23 Sep 1815 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Is this the same Anthony who appears in the 1850 census for West Van Buren Township, LaGrange County, Indiana? I think so. There is a good match on ages (Anthony is age 36 in the census and his wife is age 39). He married ELIZABETH. There were members of an Anderson and a McFarlane family in the household in the 1850 census all born in Pennsylvania.

(Hyst) Newhouse, and was born in Westmoreland county in 1846 and came to Clarion county in 1846, and was married in 1863 to Margaret McBride.

E. JOHN NEWHOUSE born about 1829 in Westmoreland County. From the History of Westmoreland Co., Vol. 3, pg. 119 by John N. Boucher comes the following biography. "CHARLES GRANT NEWHOUSE. One of those men to whom Delmont looks for the maintenance of that spirit of commercial enterprise which has ever been one of her most marked characteristics is Charles Grant Newhouse. The great-grandfather of Mr. Newhouse was a Revolutionary soldier, whose biographical papers, including his discharge from the army, were to the lasting regret of succeeding generations lost before his death, so that not even the given name of this hero survives in the memory of any one now living.
Samuel Newhouse, the son of this patriot soldier, was born in Westmoreland county, where he spent his entire life as a farmer, and where his son, John Newhouse, was born in 1824. He also was a farmer, and moved to Armstrong county where he lived for thirty years. For the last ten years he has resided in Delmont, having retired from active labor, and being now eighty one years of age.
Charles Grant Newhouse, son of John Newhouse, was born May 30, 1876, in Armstrong county, and received a good common school education. In 1895 he accompanied his father to Delmont. In March, 1905, he bought out the general store and business previously carried on by J. D. Martz, and is now conducting it with every indication of a successful future. Mr. Newhouse married, June 15, 1903, Elizabeth Bierer, and they have one daughter, Stella, born July 5, 1904. Mr. Newhouse is a member of the Presbyterian church, and Mrs. Newhouse belongs to the Lutheran church. Mr. Newhouse is an adherent to Democratic faith and principles."

THE NEWHOUSES OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MARYLAND; HAMPSHIRE/HARDY COUNTIES, VIRGINA (now WEST VIRGINIA) AND MANY PLACES SOUTH AND WEST (FANNIN COUNTY, TEXAS)

This story begins with four Newhouse men in the 1790 federal census for Montgomery County, Maryland. They were John, Benjamin, Thomas and William. They were all four heads of households. There are few details provided in this census. John’s household included three white males older than 16 and one white female. Benjamin’s household included two white males older than 16. Thomas’s household included one white male over 16, one white male under 16 and four white females. William’s household included one white male over 16, one white male under 16 and four white females. Thomas, Benjamin & William then appear on the 1800 tithable list for Hampshire County, Virginia (West Virginia) with John Newhouse who I believe is John, the son of Thomas Newhouse. The elder John Newhouse appears on the 1800 tax list for Brooke County, Virginia (now West Virginia). Where exactly these men went after this time is unclear except for Thomas Newhouse who went to Jefferson, Stark and Wayne Counties, Ohio. Benjamin Newhouse seems to have ended up in Washington County, Pennsylvania in 1850. Where he was between 1800 & 1850 is unknown but probably living with his children somewhere in what is now panhandle West Virginia, eastern Ohio or western Pennsylvania. John’s whereabouts are documented in a Revolutionary War pension file and where William went is very difficult to determine although it seems his children went to Kentucky and Tennessee.

A John Newhouse took an Oath of Fidelity to Maryland in Prince Georges County sometime between 1776-1779.

On 14 August 1787 Elisha Cox married Milley Frasier in the Frederick, Maryland Evangelical Lutheran Church. The witnesses were Wilm. Frasier, THOMAS NEWHOUSE, John Smith, Cathar. Kilian.

There are two early Newhouse marriages recorded in Maryland which may be the persons described above. John Newhouse married Ann Statia Connally 31 Dec 1791 in Frederick County, Maryland. William Newhouse married Adera Conley 10 Jan 1786 in Prince Georges County, Maryland.

THOMAS NEWHOUSE

From Margaret Johnson, Charlotte Brannan & Gail Willet we have the following information on THOMAS NEWHOUSE (and from his will filed Sep 1838 in Stark County, Ohio).

THOMAS NEWHOUSE (ca 1760/1765-ca 1838) probably born in Virginia or Maryland. He married CATHERINE WOOD sometime in the mid 1780s. He died in Stark County, Ohio.

BENJAMIN NEWHOUSE

Starting a little bit in reverse order we find a BENJAMIN & AMY E. NEWHOUSE in the 1850 census for Buffalo Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. They are in the household of ROBERT & SUSANNA COX. It seems that Susanna Cox is the daughter or granddaughter of Benjamin Newhouse. Benjamin is listed as age 93 born in Maryland. Amy E. is listed as age 83, born in Maryland. Robert Cox is listed as age 45 born in PA and Susanna Cox is listed as age 35 also born in PA. Other household members are Rebecca Cox listed as age 13, born in Ohio and Eliza G(?)inton listed as age 18 born in Ohio.

The following are possibly children of BENJAMIN NEWHOUSE.

I. MARY NEWHOUSE (20 Jan 1793-12 Jul 1877) born in Montgomery County, Maryland and died in Wellsburg, Brooke County, West Virginia. She married JOHN MOREN 1810 in Wellsburg. From the History of the Pan-Handle, West Virginia on page 355. "John Moren came to Wellsburg in 1806. He was born in Washington County, PA, March 14, 1790. He learned the cabinet making trade with a Mr McConnell at Wellsburg. In 1810 he married Mary Newhouse, who was born in Montgomery County, MD, January 20, 1793. Mr Moren enlisted as a private in Captain Moses Congleton's company of Virginia troops recruiting at Wellsburg during the War of 1812, and marched with the company to Norfolk, Va., and back. He always resided in Wellsburg after locating there in 1806. He died on the 24th day of January, 1876..........His wife survived him but a short time, passing away July 12, 1877. They were blessed with ten children, five boys and five girls, viz: Eliza, Caroline, Maria S., Narcissa P., Harriett D., George W., John T., William, James, and Robert. William died in 1849, Caroline died in 1871, Eliza died in 1879, James went to California in 1852. After being there a few months he never was heard of again by his friends at Wellsburg."

II. LEVI NEWHOUSE (ca 1798-after 1850) born in Virginia and died in Ohio. He married MARGARET VANSICKLE 4 Dec 1823 in Jefferson County, Ohio.
A. MARY JANE NEWHOUSE (25 Mar 1825- ) born in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. She married FRANKLIN BALDWIN, son of ISAAC and MARY BALDWIN Oct 1843.
B. SUSAN NEWHOUSE (1827- ) born in Wellsburg, Brooke County, West Virginia. She married WILLIAM T. HURD in Clarington, Monroe County, Ohio. William was mayor of Clarington for ten years.
C. GEORGE NEWHOUSE (1 Apr 1832- ) born in Brooke County, West Virginia. He married VICTORIA PRESCOTT 28 Oct 1855 in Clarington, Monroe County, Ohio.
D. ELIZABETH NEWHOUSE did not marry.
E. ELLEN NEWHOUSE (ca 1835- ) married Dr. BALL.
F. VIRGINIA MALVINA (JANNIE) NEWHOUSE (16 Feb 1847-25 Jul 1925) probably born in Clarington, Ohio. She married SAMUEL STONEBREAKER FARRIER.

III. NANCY NEWHOUSE (ca1800/1805- ) born in Virginia. She married OTHO LINTON 12 Dec 1824 in Jefferson County, Ohio. Otho was a son of JEREMIAH LINTON of Jefferson County, Ohio.
A. BENJAMIN LINTON
B. GEORGE LINTON
C. AMANDA LINTON married GEORGE EBERS.
D. ELIZA JANE LINTON married 1st WILLIAM COWAN and then 2nd ISAIAH VERMILION.
E. SUSAN LINTON married 1st AUGUST COLLINS and then 2nd JOHN CARPENTER.
F. LEVI LINTON
G. JEREMIAH LINTON died in the Civil War.
H. OTHO LINTON died in the Civil War.
I. JOHN M. LINTON (17 Feb 1843- ) born in Jefferson County, Ohio. He married MAGGIE SULLIVAN, daughter of CORNELIUS & MARY ANN SULLIVAN, Feb 1866. John owned a 124 acre farm on Cross Creek in Wells Township, Jefferson County, Ohio. John was a Civil War veteran (Company E, 52nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment). John was a member of E. M. Stanton Post, No. 166, GAR at Steubenville.
J. NANCY LINTON married JOHN GILCHRIST
K. Three children died in infancy.

The following two persons are born so late that they are possibly granddaughters of Benjamin by an unknown son. Beware that the Amy E. Newhouse in the 1850 household may be a late in life marriage and that Benjamin may have been married several times before.
IV. DELILAH NEWHOUSE (ca1810- ) born in Virginia. She married THOMAS F. COX 27 Jul 1828 in Jefferson County, Ohio.

V. SUSAN NEWHOUSE (ca1815- ) born in Pennsylvania. She married ROBERT COX 15 Jul 1832 in Jefferson County, Ohio.


JOHN NEWHOUSE

The key to the identity of JOHN NEWHOUSE is the fortunate discovery of a letter in the Revolutionary War pension file of Eleanor (Nelly) Virgin Swearingen Newhouse. She was the third wife of Captain Van Swearingen, a Revolutionary War veteran. This was her first marriage. She married 2nd JOHN NEWHOUSE in 1799. Is this the same John Newhouse who married Ann Statia Connally 31 Dec 1791 in Frederick County, Maryland? I will leave that answer to further research or for someone to come forward with the answer. JOHN NEWHOUSE died 29 Jul 1830 in Hamilton County, Ohio.

I. JULIA NEWHOUSE born about 1800. He married JOSHUA MARKLIN 26 Aug 1817 in Butler County, Ohio.

II. JOHN C. NEWHOUSE born about 1800. She married HANNAH CRAIG 14 May 1820 in Butler County, Ohio.

III. MATILDA NEWHOUSE born about 1805. She married JOHN HAYS 24 Aug 1823 in Franklin County, Ohio.

Perhaps one of the Butler County marriages above is not a child of John Newhouse & Eleanor Swearingen.

IV. ELIZA J. NEWHOUSE (perhaps a Swearingen?) married WILLIAM A. FRACKER. They lived in Franklin County, Ohio. Perhaps she was married to a MIDDLETON earlier.

From a publication called “Ohio Source Records” From The Ohio Genealogical Quarterly published by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. Baltimore 1986 in a section called “Abstracts of Wills, Franklin County, Ohio” compiled by Blanche Tipton Rings is “NEWHOUSE, ELEANOR, (C-292). Of Columbus. Signed Mch. 21, 1850. proven Mch. 29, 1853.. Widow of John Newhouse and formerly wife of Capt. Van Swearingen, deceased. `Have received from the war department of the U. S. A., three certificates constituting me a pension of the United States of the said Van Swearingen; one certificate dated Feb. 6, 1849, entitled me to a pension of $480 per annum for five years from Mch. 4, 1848; also—that she had `to prosecute the claim and the costs have been met by’ her daughter Eliza J. Fracker, wife of William A. Fracker, and that she had been supported by this daughter for many many years’—these certificates all to go to Eliza J. Fracker, daughter. No executor named. Witnessed by S. C. West and Daniel Evans.

The letter from the pension files follows:
September 30, 1938


Mrs. L. Virginia Grant BA-J/ILL
323 Washington Street Van Swearingen
Jefferson City, Missouri. W.5415



Dear Madam:

Reference is made to your letter in which you request information in regard to a number of Revolutionary War soldiers, listed as follow-Captain Hugh Brent, Robert Robb, David Wood, John Wood, Jonathan Wood, Malcolm Wood, Captain Thomas H. Wood, and seven officers with the name Swearingen, one of whom was Captain Van Swearingen.

A search of the Revolutionary War records has been made and no claim for pension or bounty land found which was made to the United States based upon service of Hugh Brent, Robert Robb, Malcolm Wood, or Captain Thomas H. Wood, nor of any of the Swearingens listed by you except that of Captain Van Swearingen; no claims could be identified of the particular David, John or Jonathan Wood in whom you are interested. The report of Van Swearingen is given herein, as found in pension claim, W.5415, based upon his service in the Revolutionary War.

Van Swearingen was commissioned August 9, 1776, captain in a regiment raised in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, served in Colonel Mackey’s and Daniel Brodhead’s 8th Pennsylvania regiment until June 9, 1777, from which time he served as captain in Colonel Morgan’s Rifle Corps, was in the battles of Stillwater and Saratoga, where he was taken prisoner, after a short time, was exchanged for Captain Frazor, a British officer, and resumed his command. He resigned before the close of the war, having served in all more than two years.

This officer married in May 1786, in Washington County, Pennsylvania, Eleanor or Nelly Virgin, a daughter of Jeremiah Virgin. Captain Swearingen and his wife, Eleanor, lived in Washington County, Pennsylvania, where he was sheriff for many years, later moved to a farm on the western frontier, the disputed territory between Virginia and Pennsylvania, later incorporated as Brooke County, Virginia; their home was about a mile above the town of Wellsburg in said Brooke County.

Captain Van Swearingen had two other wives whose names are not shown, nor dates of those marriages. He died December 2, 1793, and was buried on the farm of William Tarr, one mile from Wellsburg; the inscription copied from the headstone shows-“Here lies the body of Van Swearingen, esq. Who departed this life on the 2nd day of December 1793 in the 51st year of his age.”

Captain Van Swearingen and his wife, Eleanor, had three children.

After this officer’s death, Eleanor resided for some time on the farm where he died; her own father, Jeremiah Virgin, lived there with her a part of that time. Eleanor married in 1799, John Newhouse; they resided in this farm some years, moved about 1804 to “the Barrens of Kentucky”, about 1813, moved to Butler County, Ohio, thence in 1817, to Hamilton County, Ohio; John Newhouse died there July 29, 1830.

John Newhouse and his wife, Eleanor, had three children.

Eleanor Newhouse was allowed pension on account of service of her former husband, captain Van Swearingen, in the Revolutionary War on her application executed August 3, 1847; she was then a resident of Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio, aged eighty-four years. In 1848, she was living in Columbus with her daughter, Eliza Jane Middleton; this daughter’s age was not given, nor the name of her father designated. No other names of Eleanor’s children were stated. Eleanor Newhouse was residing in Columbus, Ohio, in 1830.

Eleanor has three brothers, Rezin, John and Brice Virgin, their ages not given. Reference was made to a brother of Captain Van Swearingen, but his name was not stated.

In order to obtain the date of last payment of pension, name of person paid, and, possibly, the date of death of the widow, you should address the Comptroller General, General Accounting Office, this city, and cite the following: Eleanor Newhouse, widow of Van Swearingen, certificate #3992, issued February 23, 1848, rate $480 per annum, commenced March 4, 1848, Act of February 2, 1848, Ohio Agency.

Very Truly yours,

A. D. HILLER
Executive Assistant
to the Administrator

WILLIAM NEWHOUSE

In this case I have a warm feeling that this William Newhouse is the WILLIAM NEWHOUSE who married ADERA CONLEY 10 Jan 1786 in Prince Georges County, Maryland.

The following roman numerals are my best guestimate of the children of this William Newhouse. The last four persons went to Kentucky and Tennessee.

Mrs. Pat (Mrs Dean) Newhouse of Fannin County, Texas wrote the following about JAMES ALEXANDER NEWHOUSE, SR. She published the following in the FANNIN COUNTY FOLKS AND FACTS Publ. Bonham, Tex. in 1977, "The Newhouse family of Fannin County are descended from John Newhouse who came from England in 1623 as part of the original Virginia Company. From Jamestown this family migrated up the James River until, in 1787, they settled for a time in Montgomery County, Maryland. It was here that James Alexander Newhouse, Sr. was born. He later moved further west and settled in the South Branch Valley of the Potomac River. In 1813 he married Jemima Yoakum and they made their home in Moorefield in what is now Hardy County, West Virginia. From this union came ten children and then, after Jemima's death, James married Rebecca Earls and had three additional children. Most of his children remained in same area but two came to Texas.
First to arrive in Texas about 1849 was his youngest daughter, Mary Matilda Newhouse, who had married her mother's nephew, Christopher Columbus Yoakum. (See Yoakum family history.) In 1854 Christopher and Mary Matilda returned to West Virginia for the settlement of his father's estate. Their description of the land and the opportunities to be found in Texas persuaded Mary Matilda's brother, James Alexander Jr., to return to Fannin County with them. James brought with him his wife Ann and two small children. Ann was the daughter of Joseph Lockmiller (Loughmiller) and Delilah Bruner formerly of Shenandoah County, Virginia.
In addition to farming, James A., Jr. followed his father's trade of blacksmithing. In July 1861 he joined many of his Confederate neighbors in Company 5, 14th Brigade of the Texas Militia under Capt. Hugh Wallace.
Having been born on Valentine's day in 1828, he was only 41 years old when he died December 7, 1869. He is buried at Vineyard Grove Cemetery near Allen's Chapel along side two of his children, William A. and Ann Jemima Newhouse, who had died while still young. Four sons survived James Alexander and Ann Newhouse."

On March 3, 1901 he married Allie Vera Sledge at the Shiloh school house and when death came to him on October 5, 1917, he was buried in the Shiloh community cemetery.
Brit provided materially for his family by farming, but he nourished them spiritually with his deep religious beliefs. He was known to all as a man of faith and was both preacher and elder in the Church of Christ. Brit Newhouse worked hard and provided well for his young family. He stayed abreast of the times and secured a late model surrey to take his family to church services.
His health began to fail and he died at the early age of 45. His young widow, left with eight children, was able to bring them through many hardships. Perhaps the most outstanding thing to be said of Brit Newhouse's family was that each of them was a devout Christian. The children of John Britton Newhouse and his wife Allie Vera Sldge were, Bright Kimberlin, born in 1902, married in June 1926 to Wilie McDonald, farmed in West Texas.

7' THOMAS BRITTON NEWHOUSE was born July 19, 1914 in Fannin county, Texas. From FANNIN COUNTY FOLKS AND FACTS page 275 "His parents, Britton and Allie Vera Sledge Newhouse, owned a farm near Shiloh community. Britton, a deeply religious man who spent much time studying the scriptures, was a leader in the Disciples of Christ Church at Selfs. He provided well for his family until he was taken ill and died in 1917.
To be near her sister's family, Vera took her eight children (her youngest, Mary, was only 18 months) and moved west to Roby where she settled on a farm. There the oldest sons Bright, 16, Ben, 14 and Flavil, 12 would help her put in a cotton crop and then the boys would hire out to chop and pick cotton. They received $3 per day, thus were able to obtain a meager living. Esther, age eight, and John, ten, helped their mother care for Sam, Tom and Mary Lou. In 1926 Vera decided to return to the farm at Shiloh. As the older sons married the responsibility of the farm was passed to the younger.
In 1939 Tom married June Weaver and moved to Selfs. They had four children, Diann, the oldest, attended Abilene Christian College where she married Burl Proctor of Fort Worth. Proctor is with the United States Air Force and is stationed at New Braunfels. The Proctors have two daughters, Laurie and Barbara.
Phyllis, the second child, graduated from Abilene Christian College and East Texas State University, then began teaching in Bonham Public Schools. She is married to Wayne Ryser who owns a farm near Allens Chapel. Maeta is their daughter.
David, who now manages Fannin Peanut Company, graduated from East Texas State University and married Rose Etta Farrell of Forest Hill community. They have a daughter, Hannah. Alice married Emery Banker who is a teacher in Honey Grove. She graduated from East Texas State University and opened the Honey Grove Day Care Center. The Bankers have two sons, Justin and Jules.
When Tom Newhouse first went into business for himself, he bought a filling station. In a few years he sold out and built a dairy barn. Then he tried a sawmill. In 1954 he, with Doc Melton, opened the first market for farmer's stock peanuts in Fannin County at Honey Grove. Obtaining his own property in 1961, Newhouse built a plant for drying and storing bulk peanuts. To this he added a feed store and bulk fertilizer distributing station which also was a first of its kind in Fannin County. This new type of fertilizer distributor was loaded by elevator and pulled by tractor over the field. By eliminating the handling of sacks, it saved many hours of labor and spread the fertilizer over a larger area. When larger companies put in similar stations most of Tom's business was drawn away. The feed store was sold out to expand the peanut company which Tom operated until his death.
Like his father, Tom was strongly religious. During the summer he would often travel to small congregations of the Church of Christ and lead singing for outdoor gospel meetings. He often sang religious songs with his brother Sam, brother-in-law, Frank Dobbs and sister, Mary. A diligent student of the Bible he taught himself to prepare sermons and preach. He preached at congregations in Ivanhoe, Windom, Telephone and Direct. He was an elder in the Selfs church until his death in July 1969. BY PHILLIS NEWHOUSE RYSER"

THE NEWHOUSES OF SHENANDOAH and ROCKINGHAM COUNTIES, VIRGINIA; GREENBRIER and KANAWHA COUNTIES, VIRGINIA (now WEST VIRGINIA) and MARION COUNTY, INDIANA.

The following narrative is my attempt to consolidate the information I have found on the above described Newhouses and related families beginning with a very large effort in February 1988. I have added to and corrected it several times since then.
The start of information that I have found on this family begins with a marriage recorded for Elizabeth Newhouse to Ed Price December 21, 1773 in Shenandoah County, Virginia. This marriage was also recorded in Greenbrier County, Virginia (now West Virginia) on January 19, 1785. This is an astounding difference. However the birth dates of her children confirm that the 1785 date is the accurate one. The marriages of Elizabeth Newhouse to Edward Price (Jan 19, 1785) and Henry Newhouse to Elizabeth Claypole (Sep 13, 1796)) appear in the records of the Baptist Minister, Reverend John Alderson, Jr. 1776 to 1798 who was pastor of the Linville Creek Baptist Church in Rockingham County to 1777 and then the Greenbrier Baptist Church in Alderson, Virginia (Greenbrier County). This is the story of five Newhouses of which three are clearly brothers and sister. They are Elizabeth Newhouse who married Edward Price, Michael Newhouse who married Catherine Lewis and Henry Newhouse who married Elizabeth Claypole. There was also an Edmund Newhouse who was on the muster roll of Ft. Lee and according to who you talk to was a brother of the above Newhouses or was their father. There was also a Keziah Slack who was born in 1786 and married James Slack June 26, 1806 in Kanawha County. Some believe she was a daughter of Michael or the sister of the above Newhouses.

Hardesty's West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia, Volume Four, states (in referring to the Elk District, which lies on both sides of the Elk River) "The first settlers were Michael Newhouse, Martin Hamock and Allen Baxter, all three coming in 1783. Newhouse settled on the west side of Elk River, five miles below Jarretts Ford; Hamock one mile above the mouth of Little Sandy, and one-half below Jarretts Ford, and Baxter at Baxters shoals on Elk, four miles from Charleston. ..... Other early settlers were Henry Newhouse who located near the mouth of the branch which still bears his name". Volume 16 of Hardestys West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia states that "Newhouse Branch, a small right-hand tributary to Elk River, a branch of Kanawha River, in Kanawha County". The 1850 Virginia Census shows Michael Newhouse as 80 years old. That would make him 13 in 1783!
Donna Hayes Shedd in a letter dated 13 Jan 1986 reports that the Newhouses "are deep in the history of Kanawha County beginnings in the days when it was known as Ft Lee. I believe it was Michael who was a private in the army which built and garrisoned Ft Lee."
In 1787, George Clendenin, a Virginia legislator, bought the land where Charleston now stands. The next year, he and a group of soldiers built Fort Lee on the site to protect the Kanawha Valley, which was then on the frontier. Clendenin believed it would become a highway to the West. Settlers soon built cabins near Fort Lee. In 1794, the settlement officially became a town, which George Clendenin named Charles Town for his father. The city changed its name to Charleston in 1818.
In the Courthouse in Lewisburg, Greenbrier County, West Virginia, I found the following marriages recorded; Elizabeth Newhouse to Edward Price 19 Jan 1785, Michael Newhouse to Catherine Lewis 13 Jul 1793 and Henry Newhouse to Elizabeth Claypole 13 Sep 1796. All three were married by Reverend Jonathan Alderson, Jr. I found no other records of Newhouses in Greenbrier County in the deed records, taxable land records or will records. Henry appears in the publication "Virginia Census 1790" which was partially reconstructed from personal property tax records (for Greenbrier County 1783-1786). Cemetery inscription records in the local Historical Society revealed no Newhouses. Kanawha County was a part of Greenbrier County until 1788. It is my guess that the Newhouse marriages recorded in Greenbrier County are the same persons/family as the Newhouses of Kanawha County and that no Newhouses ever lived in what is present day Greenbrier County, WVA but only what was once part of Greenbrier County. I do not have a good explanation for the marriages being recorded after 1788. My guess is that they were married by Rev Alderson on one of his trips into the wilderness and when he returned to Alderson, WVA they were recorded in Greenbrier County. Monroe County was not formed until 1799 from Greenbrier County.
From Gleanings of Monroe County West Virginia, History by Charles Motley "In 1777, John Alderson, Jr moved with his family westward onto the valley of Greenbrier River. ...... This territory into which he came as one of the pioneers was not altogether unfamiliar to him, for during the two years he had served as pastor of the Linville Baptist Church he had made missionary tours across the Alleghenies into this section, and had baptized a few people on each trip….. Upon his arrival in the general area in which he planned to locate, he settled first in Jarrett's Fort on Wolf Creek, which is now Monroe County. Not long afterward he took up a tract of 1750 acres on the south side of the Greenbrier River (on a site adjacent to and west of the place where the Alderson Hotel now stands) which turned out to be his permanent residence for many years (thus he was also the founder of the town of Alderson, which is named for him). Here he engaged in farming, and often carried a rifle swinging on his shoulder as he followed the plow. From this farm he ventured into the surrounding wilderness as a missionary, usually bearing a gun in one hand and a Bible in the other as he traveled to preach at such places as were most convenient for the people to assemble. At the time the inhabitants mostly resided in forts, as a protection from the constant and dangerous threat of Indian attacks. This courageous, zealous and arduous preacher of the gospel traveled in all directions and in all seasons in pursuit of his perilous, strenuous and laborious vocation as a good minister of Jesus Christ. (He was called "Elder" rather than "Reverend" because under British colonial rule the latter title was allowed only to those serving as ministers of the Established Church.)
It was after four years of valiant and heroic struggle in the mountainous wilderness that Elder John Alderson succeeded in getting together twelve people to organize on November 24, 1781, the Greenbrier Baptist Church."
It is my guess that Elizabeth, Michael and Henry Newhouse are brothers and sister. There is also a Keziah Newhouse that married James Slack 26 June 1806 (the first Newhouse marriage recorded in Kanawha County). I don't know if she is a younger sister of the above persons or is a niece of the above Newhouses. According to the 1850 Census, Keziah Newhouse was born in 1786. Volume 16 of Hardestys West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia reports Edmund, Henry and Michael Newhouse as having served from West Virginia in the Indian Wars following the Revolution with reference to Vol 9 pages 123 to 128 (Need to look this up). Possibly Edmund Newhouse is another brother of Henry and Michael Newhouse (Could there be service or pension records for this service?).
From research done by Donna Shedd the following (6 paragraphs) is known. The land tax records for Kanawha County show Henry in the year 1795 with one white male over 16 and 2 horses, mares, or mules. He disappears from the records until the year 1804 having two additional horses. He doesn't appear again until 1809-1813 where he has 90 acres. Michael shows up in 1803-1813 with 150 acres.
On the lists of tithables for Kanawha County, Mike and Henry are listed in 1792. In 1793 it's Mike and Edmond. In 1794 it's just Mike. In 1795 there are none. In 1796 it's Mike and Henry again.
Then there's a tax record for 1793 that lists Mike and Henry. This all comes from the records at the archives in Charleston.
The deeds at the courthouse show Mike buying land - 137 1/2 acres on Elk River below Coopers Creek - from Wm Griffith in 1797. In the years 1809, 1810, and 1824 Henry bought 90 acres on Elk, 100 acres on Elk, and 100 acres on Blue Creek respectively from Edward Burgess, Nehemiah Wood and Edmond Price respectively.
Then there are the personal property tax records from Richmond, Virginia. In 1792 there are Mike and Edmond. Both show one White male over 16 and Mike has 2 horses. In 1796 it's Mike and Henry. Mike has one horse and Henry has 3. In 1801, Mike 1 horse and Henry 4 horses.

After this she only recorded Henry. In 1814, 3 horses, 1815 - 4 horses and 18 head of cattle, 1816 - 2 males over 16 and 4 horses, 1817 - same, 1818 - 3 males over 16 and 4 horses, 1821 - 3 males over 16.
From the History of Kanawha County by George W. Atkinson "Rev William Pattison succeeded Mr (Rev Asa) Shinn, being appointed to the Guyandotte Circuit, at the Western Conference, in October, 1804. Some time in the following Summer one or two of the settlers on Elk River, Who had occasionally heard the Methodist preachers in Charleston, invited Mr. Pattison to preach in their neighborhood, which he did, at the house of Mr. Michael Newhouse about four miles from Charleston. (Footnote says that Mr. Newhouse then resided upon the same farm now owned by the mother of the author- Mrs Miriam Atkinson.) This house, thenceforth, became one of the regular appointments on the circuit. Mr Pattison was followed, in November, 1805, By Rev. Abraham Amos. Some two months afterward-in January, 1806, I think-the first Methodist Society in the Kanawha Valley was organized. This class was formed by Mr. Amos, at Mr. Newhouse's, above mentioned. The following are the names of members then enrolled, as nearly as I can now recollect: John Slack (Footnote says that he is Father of Hon. Greenbury Slack and John Slack, Sr., Esq.) of Elk River Valley; Mrs Slack, do.; Michael Newhouse, do. ; Mrs. ______ Newhouse, do. ; Keziah Newhouse; William Williams, of Charleston; Margaret Williams, do., by letter; Samuel Williams, do., by letter; with two or three other persons on Elk River, whose names are forgotten. Of this class Mr Slack was appointed leader."
It should also be noted that the family names of Price and Lewis were common in the early records of this area of Kanawha County as were the names of Slack and Samuels which shall be seen later as very important to the Newhouse genealogy of this area. While the family name Lewis is the most important early family of Greenbrier County, there is no occurrence of the name Price in the courthouse records until 1801. This is one more reason why I believe no early Newhouses actually lived in what is now Greenbrier County, WVA.
A great help in collecting this data was the Slack Family History titled "6,474 Slack Relatives". The Slack family was and is an important family of Kanawha County. My correspondence with Roscoe C. Keeney, Jr the author of the above History provided important additional information. One disappointment was that his attempts to correspond with related Newhouses were unavailing. All his letters went unanswered. His information was taken from public records and other family information. It is interesting to note that the Slacks and Aldersons had connections to Bucks County, PA; Rev John Alderson Sr was at the New Britain Baptist Church, PA until he moved to Linville Creek, Rockingham County, VA in 1756.
In the 1810 Virginia Census, Henry Newhouse is shown as being over 45 with 5 sons and 3 daughters. In the 1850 Virginia Census he is shown to be 92 years old.
Four of Michael Newhouse's sons and one nephew went to Lawrence Township, Marion Co., IN between 1828 and 1844. The relationship of John Newhouse is unclear since he is not listed as a son of either Henry or Michael in the information given Donna Shedd (see below). Their birth dates from their gravestones (as recorded by Elbert Newhouse) and the 1850 Census of Marion County, Indiana are Benjamin Newhouse born 15 Mar 1797, Edmund Newhouse born 1799, Andrew Newhouse born 1802, John Newhouse born 21 Dec 1804 and Henry Newhouse born 27 Mar 1807. From Kanawha County marriage records they show Andrew Newhouse married Juliann Jordan 27 Aug 1840, Edmund Newhouse married Sally Rucker 13 Jul 1825 and Henry Newhouse married Betsey Casdorph 24 Jan 1828. In the 1850 Marion County, Indiana Census Andrew Newhouse is shown with wife Julie A. and Edmund Newhouse with wife Sarah. In Elbert Newhouse's Family History of the Newhouses of Lawrence Township, Marion County, Indiana; he lists Henry Newhouse's wife as Elizabeth Brown (Did Elbert assume Elizabeth's last name was Brown because they were living with the Brown family in the 1850 Census? Are Elizabeth and Betsey Casdorph the same person? Check Marion County marriage records). Elbert Newhouse also reports that records in the public library in Warrenton, Virginia show that Henry Newhouse was born near there about 1807. After three days of research in that library and conversations with local experts I could find no evidence of Henry's birth.
From information provided by Donna Hayes Shedd from information sent her by a correspondent "he has in his possession the New Testament Bible of Elizabeth Claypole Newhouse, wife of Henry, and my fourth great grandmother. In it she has recorded the names and birthdates of herself and all her children. It says that she was born 6 Aug 1772 in Greenbriar county, the daughter of Joseph and Abigail Osbourne Claypole. Her children listed as follows:

1. Phoebe Newhouse b. 11 Aug 1797 d. 13 Apr 1867
m. 1820 to John Huffman
2. Edmond Newhouse b. 16 Dec 1798 d.
m. 13 Jul 1835 to Sarah Rucker
3. James Newhouse writing is illegible

4. Joseph Newhouse b. 16 July 1802 d.
m. 23 Jan 1831 to Elizabeth Slack
5. Abigail Newhouse b. 25 Feb 1804 d.
m. 18 Jun 1829 to Fielding Rucker
6. Michael Newhouse b. 15 June 1806 d.
m. to Jane Price
7. Elizabeth Newhouse b. 18 Apr 1808 d.
m. 22 Apr 1830 to Charles King
8. Henry Newhouse Jr. b. 22 Apr 1810 d.
m. 28 Nov 1833 to Sarah Martin
9. Mary "Polly" Newhouse b. 24 Oct 1812 d. 1 Dec 1858
m. 9 Jun 1835 to Cornelius Page
10. Jane Newhouse b. 17 April 1815 d.
m. 13 Mar 1834 to James Ennis

The packet of information I received also contained a list of the children of Michael, though it did not come from Elizabeth's Bible. I think it just came out of his research. He lists them as:

1. Benjamin b. ca 1795 (I know you have an accurate date)
2. Susan b. ca 1800 d. m. 10 Dec 1819 to John Baxter
3. Henry b. ca 1801 d. m. 24 Jan 1828 to Elizabeth Casdorph
4. Andrew b. ca 1804 d. m. 27 Aug 1840 to Julia Ann Jordan
5. Edmond b. ca 1808 d. m. 29 Sep 1831 to Rachel Samuels
6. Polly b. ca 1810 d. m. 1 Nov 1826 to Isaac Syaes
7. Nancy b. 12 Nov 1811 d. 29 May 1899 m. to Eli Jarrett
8. Thomas b. ca 1812 d. 26 Nov 1880 m. to Sarah McDaniel

I've received additional info on Elizabeth Claypole Newhouse, wife of Henry. Someone has researched her line across the Atlantic and all the way back to 62 B.C.! This was achieved in that her line joins into the royal line at Edward I of England and records were well kept on those folks."

He was replaced October 20, 1904 by another appointee. Ernest then entered the insurance business with the Hartford and German Fire Insurance Companies. At that time he built the family a new house located at what is now 8735 E. 46th St in Lawrence. About 1920 he sold life insurance for the Reliance Life Insurance Co. This soon became a part time job as he and several friends from the area formed the Ship Channel Oil Co. They purchased an oil lease on an island in the Houston, Texas ship channel. The company failed and he lost a lot of money. About 1922 he went to work for the Cooling Grumme Mumford General Insurance Company agency in Indianapolis. When he retired in 1946 at the age of 70, there were 3 special agents doing the same work with special assignments for him for his last 2 years of work. During his active years, Ernest moved his family several times for business and family reasons. Thus: 3746 College Ave, Indianapolis; West Lafayette; back to the home in Indianapolis; McCordsville; 2206 Bellefountaine, Indianaapolis; 622 E 46th St; back to McCordsville; 4402 N.

The family had in the meantime formed the Negladora Realty Company, a name of the combined dead members of the family; Neva, Gladstone and Doris. "Paradise" the development of this organization was an ongoing work until 1941, starting with cabins but changed during World War II to rentals. Ernest furnished most of the funds. Sons Milton and Elbert, along with relatives in need of work provided the labor. Uncle Joseph Christian was the general teacher and expert on all this work. Five, approximately 100 year old log cabins were bought, torn down, moved in and rebuilt into four modern cabins to form the theme of the development. They were original cabins of some of the early settlers of the area. Ernest was made a Mason September 11, 1901 at the Oakland Lodge #140, Oaklandon, IN. He was the Junior Deacon in 1902 and Junior Warden in 1903. His surviving sons Emerson, Milton and Elbert were made Masons of the Lodge April 5, 1930.

After retiring he provided funds, time and supervision of repairs and improvements to the property at his own expense. During World War I, Ernest did a lot of Bond promotion and helped to ease the lot of Flu suffering at Fort Benjamin Harrison, IN.

He then attended University of Cincinnati in Mechanical Engineering three and one third years of a five year cooperative course. He also attended Indiana University for one year. Elbert was appointed a 2nd Lt in the Army Ordnance Corps on November 17, 1930. On May 4, 1935 he went on active duty with the Civilian Conversation Corps. He had gained an extensive experience in design and manufacturing as a result of the various types of companies that he worked for. He also learned a great deal about general construction work in helping to build the family owned Paradise in carpentry, electrical, plumbing, etc. This experience was of great help in his administration duties in the CCC and later in the general supervision of the Mobile Shop Truck program before and during World War II. In the CCC he was able to serve as a Junior Officer for about 18 months before he was given his own command. He was given his own Company on December 19, 1936. He did well and was asked to take another Company but declined because of the need to have a damaged left knee cartilage taken care of. On October 9, 1939 he was assigned to Raritan Arsenal in Metuchen, N. J. where he was to assist in the design of suitable maintenance trucks for mobile Ordnance repair work. He was soon in complete charge. After the war he was assigned to the Philippines but later back trouble sent him to Camp Stoneman Army Hospital near San Francisco. There it was determined that he had a left branch bundle block to his heart. Elbert continued to keep up with his Army Reserve work until he was placed in the Inactive Reserve July 11, 1951, due to his back trouble. He had worked at several fill-in jobs until he was convinced to go to work for the Navy at what later became known as the Naval Avionics Facility in Indianapolis. He started as a mechanical engineer but was soon promoted in charge of repair, redesign and improvement of various optical aviation gunsights and accessories. Again back trouble forced him to retire on disability at age 54 with great regret. He then had another operation to fuse the bad back. He did a bit of work for the new owner of Paradise, mostly supervisory and renting of the units. In 1961 he and his wife went to Lehigh Acres, Florida. They rented and finally bought a home in 1970. He had joined the Oaklandon Lodge #140 F&AM April 5, 1930 serving as the secretary in 1932 and 1933 and as Junior Warden in 1935 until he was called May 4, 1935 for duty with the CCC. Elbert attended Baptist, Methodist and Lutheran Churches at various times in his life. He joined the Oaklandon Universalist Church as a youth and always found that it's members had the best out look on religious matters. After his war service he worked regularly in the organization as Trustee, Moderator and a member of the State Executive Board. In April 1978 he had a heart attack but recovered satisfactorily. Elbert is the author of "NEWHOUSE And Related Families From Lawrence Twp., Marion Co., Ind. As of 1980". He took over a work started by his brother, Milton A Newhouse, and his wife, Berniece. Elbert married JUANITA HANNA MCCONNELL August 27, 1932 in the Unitarian Church, Louisville, Kentucky.

After graduation from high school in Oaklandon and becoming of age and on her own, she went to work first at Taggarts Bakery; the Real Silk Hosiery Mill; the National Hosiery Co. and doing hosiery repair work at H.P. Wasson Co., all of Indianapolis. She worked at Wasson's again shortly after her son was born where she remained until her husband was called to active duty with the CCC.

1. HARRISON JARRETT
2. JOHN T. JARRETT. From Hardesty's West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia, Volume Four the following is taken "John T. Jarrett is a son of Eli and Nancy (Newhouse) Jarrett who were natives of Kanawha county, and in this county he was born, October 25, 1850. At Copenhavers Mills, this county, November 18, 1874, he was joined in wedlock with CYNTHIA E., daughter of J. S. and KEZIAH (SLACK) COPENHAVER. She was born in Kanawha county, November 25, 1853, and this county witnessed the nativity of her parents. Harrison Jarrett, brother of John T., enlisted in the Federal army soon after the opening of hostilities between the States, and served in the West Virginia Infantry, participating in many hard-fought battles, until the close of the war.........John T.

Since December 21, 1882, he has also held the office of postmaster, Jarrett P. O., Kanawha county, West Virginia." In the book, 6,474 Slack Relatives, it states John T. Jarrett was a Charleston surgeon who lived at Fort Hill. He died March 28, 1935. Cynthia Elizabeth Copenhaver was the second child of Keziah Slack (born 1830) and James T. Copenhaver (born 1828, died June 30, 1899). Keziah and James were married November 19, 1849. Keziah was the fourth child of James Slack and Keziah Newhouse. James T.

4. ELLEN NEWHOUSE born circa 1849 in Kanawha County.
5. MARY NEWHOUSE married HENRY RUMMEL May 1872 in Kanawha County. From Hardesty's West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia, Vol Four the following is taken "Henry Rummel- a prosperous farmer, stock-raiser and manufacturer of mineral water in Charleston, has been a resident in Kanawha county, West
Virginia, since 1871. He is a native of Ohio, born in Meigs county, July 27, 1847, a son of Henry and Elizabeth Rummel.

IV. HENRY NEWHOUSE was born in 1758 in Virginia according to the 1850 census for Kanawha County, Virginia. Earlier census data does not support this age for Henry. He was born between 1770-1780; likely between 1770 and 1775. He married ELIZABETH CLAYPOLE September 13, 1796 in Greenbrier (or Kanawha County) Virginia. She was the daughter of JOSEPH and ABIGAIL OSBORNE CLAYPOLE. Elizabeth was born August 6, 1772 in Greenbrier County, Virginia. This certainly would put Elizabeth's family among the earliest settlers in this part of Virginia and in what today is Greenbrier County since it was sometime later before settlers started to move up the Kanawha River to what is now Charleston. Henry and Elizabeth probably died between 1850 and 1860 in Kanawha County, WVA. According to Donna Shedd, Henry died ca. 1853 as there is an appraisement and sale bill record which she had not obtained yet. (Could there be a death certificate?) Elizabeth is shown as age 74 in the 1850 Census.
A. PHOEBE NEWHOUSE was born August 11, 1797 in Big Sandy, Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia) according to her death record (Father shown as Henry Newhouse-she born 1794). She married JOHN HUFFMAN in 1820 in Kanawha County. According to Donna Shedd, Phoebe was pregnant by an Indian when she married John Huffman. The child, Elizabeth, was born in 1820. She died April 13, 1866. John Huffman was born ca. 1788 in PA to parents who had been born in Germany. He came to Kanawha County in 1816. In the 1880 census he is living with his daughter, Rachel James. He died about 1882.

THE FAMILY OF CONRAD NEUHAUS OF YORK COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA and TEXAS(Spelled NEWHOUSE only in the early census records)

The following information on Conrad Neuhaus comes from a biography in the History of York County, Pennsylvania on his son, Frederick William Neuhaus. "Conrad Neuhaus, grandfather of Frederick W., was born and reared in Wetzlaau, Neubreisen, in the Rhine country, Germany, where he followed tailoring. He brought his family to the United States in 1817, sailing from Bremen on a sailing vessel to Baltimore, Md., where they landed after a stormy voyage of nine months, during which time the wife and one son died, both being buried at sea. Conrad Neuhaus was a man in comfortable circumstances, but the trip nearly exhausted his funds, and he made his way to Stewartstown, where he engaged in tailoring for a number of years. At the time of his arrival on this locality there were but two houses, those of Mr. Stewart and a Mr. Meads. After a time Mr. Newhaus purchased 300 acres of land in and about what is now Winterstown, and there he followed agricultural pursuits. He traded this tract of land for the one now owned by our subject, it at first being divided up into a number of farms. Mr. Newhaus operated a still on this place for a number of years, and also brewed beer, which he sold in Baltimore. He was married twice, his second wife being a Shrewsbury lady, and he lived in the latter place retired some years prior to his death which occurred in his fifty-sixth year. He was a member of the Reformed Church. He was a believer in the policy of protection. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Neuhaus were as follows: Jacob is mentioned below. John who died in Indianapolis, Ind., was a distiller and followed that occupation in many parts of the West, and his son George became private secretary to a general in the Civil war. Elizabeth, who married Maurice Berhahn, who was shot in the face in the Mexican War, died in the State of Indiana, near Fort Wayne. Henrietta, Mrs. Michael, died in North Hopewell township. Conrad became a rancher in Texas, and afterward laid out the town of Belknap, Texas, with his brothers, William and Charles; they often took large droves of cattle to St. Louis, Mo., being assisted by Mexican cowboys, and on one trip to St. Louis they put up at an isolated inn, where they were attacked by Indians, Conrad being killed and scalped, while William escaped, Charles having remained at home. When the Civil war broke out William enlisted in a Confederate Regiment, and died in the service. When grandfather Neuhaus died, Jacob Neuhaus, the father of our subject, settled up the estate, each child receiving $600 or $700. Charles wrote to Jacob to send him $500 and to keep the balance until he came home. The money was sent, but a little later a demand came from Charles to send the entire amount saying he had not received any money. Luckily, Mr. Neuhaus had kept the receipt, and in the proceedings that followed, showed that he had sent the money. The last heard of Charles, he was in Parker Co., Texas. He had married three times."

CONRAD NEUHAUS (1790/1800-1854/56) born in Wetzlaau, Neubreisen, Germany. Conrad is in the 1820 census (but not in the index) for Hopewell Twp., York Co., PA. His household is listed as follows.
Two white males under 10, one white male 26-45, one white female
under 10 and one white female 26-45.
Conrad is also in the 1840 census for Hopewell Twp., York County but not in the 1850 census. He married MARGARETHA about 1818/19. Conrad's children are listed under the following roman numerals. Order of birth is not known.

I. JACOB NEUHAUS was born October 23, 1815 in Germany. From the article in the History of York County, Pennsylvania "Jacob Neuhaus, the father of our subject, was born in Germany, Oct. 23, 1815, and was but two years old when brought to America by his parents. He went to the subscription and private schools at Stewartstown, and later taught the pay and public schools of the township. He was educated in both German and English. Reared to farming pursuits, he also learned milling, which he followed for four years at Stormer's mill. When his father removed to Shrewsbury he sold his farm to Jacob, and here the latter continued for several years. Fourteen years ago Jacob Neuhaus gave up active life, and four years later divided up his property among his children, our subject taking the home place. Mr. Neuhaus is of the Reformed faith. In politics he was a Whig, and on the organization of the Republican party became one of its staunch advocates.
Jacob Neuhaus was united in marriage with Miss Eliza Hildebrand, daughter of Adam and Elizabeth (Mitzel) Hildebrand, the latter of whom was a sister of Jacob Mitzel, of York."
A. FREDERICK WILLIAM NEUHAUS was born September 17, 1851 in Hopewell Township, York Co., PA. From the article in the History of York County, Pennsylvania "FREDERICK WILLIAM NEUHAUS, a farmer and tobacco raiser, located in North Hopewell township, was born on his father's farm, Sept. 17, 1851......
Frederick William Neuhaus was born on his father's farm, and attended the schools of Shrewsbury township and North Hopewell township until the age of nineteen years. He worked on his father's farm and also learned the mason's trade. He was employed on the Lehigh Valley Railroad, on stationary engine beds, and many points at Luzerne county and thereabout, for four years, and then engaged in tobacco farming, renting a farm. In 1895 he took the home farm, which he has profitably farmed, and he has been particularly successful in raising tobacco. On March 18, 1878, Mr. Neuhaus was united in marriage with Miss Martha Thompson, born in what is now east Hopewell township, Aug. 30, 1853. Mrs. Neuhaus was educated in the public schools and at Stewartstown Academy. She began teaching at the age of nineteen years, her first school being Collins school in East Hopewell township. Here she was superintendent for one term, and the next three years were spent at the Hildebrand school in North Hopewell township. Mrs. Neuhaus' father, William Thompson, was a shoemaker by trade, an occupation he followed in East Hopewell township. Her mother was Mary Ann McCleary, a sister of John McCleary, of North Hopewell township.....Mr. Neuhaus cast his first vote President Grant, and has voted for every Republican candidate since that time. He has served his township as assessor for three years, and proved a capable, popular official. He takes a great interest in educational matters. Mr. Neuhaus and his estimable wife are members of Sadler's Reformed Church, in which he has been a deacon for many years, and in the Sunday-school of which they have both been teachers."

ANOTHER NEWHOUSE FAMILY OF WESTMORELAND COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA (As researched by Richard Kelanic Newhouse)

Richard Newhouse wrote the following about this Newhouse family in his publication Ten Generation Chart of Anthony Newhouse (1751-1829) of Westmoreland County, PA, “The first unrelated Newhouse family settled in Westmoreland County about 1851. Since they were the only unrelated Newhouse line in the County during the 19th Century, their chart of early descendants is included here to clarify the Anthony Newhouse line.”

“Johannes Niehaus arrived in New York from Holland on May 6, 1850. His name was quickly Angelicized to John Newhouse by 1851, when he settled in Painterstown in Hempfield Township. He married Maria Catherina Hoebing, aka Mary Catherine. She was German born. In 18822 the family built a home in Greensburg, which is still here today. They were of the Roman Catholic faith.”

ABRAHAM NEWHOUSE born November 19, 1817 in New York City.

WILLIAM NEWHOUSE was born February 20, 1823 in New York City.




LEWIS JEROME NEWHOUSE of CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA

The immigration of Lewis Newhouse is contained in the book, “South Carolina Naturalizations, 1783-1850” by Brent H. Holcomb, published by the Genealogical Publishing Company, 1985. Lewis came to Charleston in 1785 from England. Lewis was in the 1790 federal census for the Charleston District of St. Phillips and St. Michaels County, South Carolina. There were three males over 16 in the household and two slaves. Lewis’s name was also part of a record contained in the April 1796 court minute records of Buncombe County, North Carolina. Evidently a receipt from Lewis Newhouse & c. was among the valuable papers burned in the house of James and William Chambers. These assets were recorded in the court minute records.




A NEUHAUS FAMILY of MAINE (then part of MASSACHUSETTS)

Massachusetts purchased the province of Maine from the heirs of Sir Ferdinando Gorges in 1677 and set up a government in the area. After the death of King Charles in 1685, Massachusetts lost all of its legal standings, forcing landholders to resecure their land at high fees. These land titles were recorded in Boston, but Maine also kept a special land office at York. The area was called the Province of Maine of the Massachusetts Bay Colony until 1779, when it became the District of Maine. Following the Revolution, in which Maine suffered more damage than any other New England area, settlement increased rapidly. The biggest deterrent to settlement was the difficulty of travel in the area, as roads were extremely poor. During the War of 1812, several Maine cities were captured by the British and the eastern part of Maine came under British control. Desires for separation from Massachusetts intensified, resulting in statehood in 1820 as part of the Missouri Compromise.

In 1992 I joined the Old Broad Bay (Maine) Family History Association in an attempt to discover more about the family of Christopher Neuhaus. See the following letters and an article from “Old Broad Bay, Bund und Blatt”


May 20, 1992

Dear Larry Newhouse

Will Whitaker gave me your letter of January 20, 1992 to answer and unfortunately it has taken me a long time to get caught up with all my work. I don’t know what Will may have sent you. We are working together to trace all of the (abt 250) German families that settled at Broad Bay (now called Waldoboro), Maine in 1742 and 1751-1753. In this letter I will send you all the information that we have at present on the Neuhaus (Newhouse) family that came to Broad Bay, Maine. Please send me any leads you might have on any branches of this family that may have gone to Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Ohio, etc.

Unfortunately not a lot is known about this family, but there was definitely such a family that came to Maine.

The family of Christopher Neuhaus came to Broad Bay, Maine about 1751. We have yet to identify for certain where the family came from in Germany. This connection will be made soon. It is believed the family came from the Taunus Mountain region around Herborn, Hessen-Nassau, Germany. It is also possible that this family came from the Baden-Durlach area. There was a Hans Jorg Neuhauser, farmer in Stein, originally from Wimpfen, whose daughter (Elisabetha Barbara Neuhauser) was christened at Gobrichen 4 Aug 1701.

Christopher Neuhaus married 3 Oct 1759 Ann Sidestone in Boston, Suffolk, Maine. It is believed that Ann Sidestone was actually Ann Seitz/Seiter and from one of the other Broad Bay German families. From this we estimate that Chistopher was born about 1735. He would have been in his upper teens probably at the time of his emigration to New England. Whether his parents or other family members also came to Broad Bay is unknown. Christopher and Ann had one son:
1. Henry Frederich Nehnenhawsen b abt 1759 at Waldoboro, Lincoln, ME. In the 1790 Census of Cushing, Lincoln, ME he was listed with wife, two sons, and one daughter.

Apparently there would have been other children besides the above son. Very few references to this family are found. On September 7, 1770 Christopher Neuhaus is listed as living on Lot No. 8 in Waldoboro. Later he took up land at Goose River within the plantation of Medumcook, where he was living in 1784 according to Lincoln Co, ME land deeds. He is also listed on the 1790 Census of Medumcook with his wife (no children living at home at that time).

Unfortunately this family remains quite obscure for the time being! If you have any other Neuhaus family names that have some indication of coming from New England, any references would be greatly appreciated. I did check the early New York German references but didn’t find any references to a Neuhaus family.

Thanks for your time and information that you shared. As we obtain more information on this family we will keep you in mind, and also ask that you do the same if you find any possible references to this family. We sure appreciate the work you and others like you are doing on these families!

Sincerely

Gary T. Horlacher, A.G.





In an article Gary Horlacher wrote for the “Old Broad Bay, Bund und Blatt” dated October-December 1994 titled “Broad Bay Early German Families Not On Passenger Lists” he included the following; “Christopher Neuhaus. Stahl gave the year 1753 as the date this family came to Broad Bay but gave no source and there is no evidence to support that claim. His name is listed on none of the ship lists for 1753, which seem quite complete, or subsequent petitions or sources given for emigrants of that year. He does not appear to have come over on promises made by Stahl as his name would have been given in 1788. He first appears in Broad Bay records on the petition of 1767. In 1770 he is living on the Seitz farm, lot 8 on the east side and in 1784 he is living on the Goose River in Medumcook. The name Neuhaus is fairly common in the German province of Westfalen.”

Dear Larry Newhouse

Thank you for your letter requesting information on the Newhouse (Neuhaus) family of Broad Bay. I believe Will Whitaker has sent you information on our project already so some of this letter may be redundant. I will be addressing here the background of our project, particular information on the Newhouse family, and a summary.

THE PROJECT

In November of 1990 I was engaged by Will W. Whitaker to trace his Heiler family into Germany. Over the space of six months and about $2,000, we were able to trace his Heiler family not only to Germany, but into Switzerland into the early 1500s. In doing this research there were numerous others in the Waldoboro Colony who were also located in their original ancestral homes in Germany. Especially those who came in the 1742 emigration to America.

Since Will was unable to finance the project of following up on these other leads and since my interest was by now fascinated by all these leads, I decided to join up with Will as partners to research the origins of each of these families in Germany, Switzerland, and France, as early as possible and down to about the second and in some cased third generation in America. This would bridge a gap that causes considerable problems for typical genealogists and would at the same time shed valuable light on the conditions of those emigrating and their early history.

Since we joined forces in June we have documented 25 families into their original ancestral homes in Germany and have many leads for others. Will is doing the American research and searching census, wills, deeds, vital records, published histories, etc, while I am doing area searches in Germany and extracting the parishes that these families came from.

So far almost all of the families that settled in Broad Bay were from two areas of Germany, namely the margravite Baden-Durlach and Nassau-Dillenburg. There were also various other French Huguenots from other parts of Germany and some Hessians that came during the Revolutionary War.

NEWHOUSE-NEUHAUS FAMILY

The Neuhaus family came to Broad Bay in 1753. Christopher Neuhaus married Ann Sidestone (Seitz?) 3 Oct 1759 in Boston. Christopher Neuhaus obtained the farm of Lorenz Sitz after his death in the French and Indian Wars, since he was listed as living there in September 1770. Neuhaus later took up land on Goose River within the plantation of Medumcook, where he was living in 1784. In the 1790 Census of Waldoboro (another name for the Broad Bay colony), there was a Henry Frederich Nehnenhawsen, probably a son of Christopher Neuhaus. He had three sons and two daughters at that time.

As yet the family has not been identified in Germany. We have reference to a Hans Jerg Neuhuser of Wimpfen who’s wife Magdalena had a child born in Gobrichen in 1701. There was a Ciriax Newhuser in Pforzheim in 1544 and 1581. Those are both in the Baden-Durlach area, where many of the Broad Bay families come from. It would be my guess at this time, however that the family came from the Dillenburg area of Hessen-Nassau. Eventually we should be able to trace this family back, however at present we are missing important information on the family in America which might be able to help us identify the family in Germany. If you know anything on any of the above names, your help would be extremely useful!”



Christopher Neuhaus/Newhouse and family seems to have disappeared after the 1790 census for Waldoboro. There are a few infrequent mentions of Newhouse in early 1800s census data for New England states but no strong clues to tie them to Christopher Newhouse. There was a William Newhouse in the 1800 and 1810 census for Colrain, Hampshire County, Massachusetts. He had a wife and one son. There was John, Ann and Sally Newhouse, each head of household, on page 120 of the Fairfield (City), Fairfield County, Connecticut 1830 census.
