am looking to fill in some about my Houseworth line. The name is originally believed to have been Hauswirt then Hauswirth then Housworth.
I have quite a bit but am looking to make sure of the accuracy.
Here is what I have so far:
Jacob Hauswirth married Barabra Brand in Bucks co., Pennsylvania in 1761. I have no birth death etc on them. I did find census info in 1800 and 1810
Their son Israel Houseworth was born in 1775 in Bucks Co. He married Catherine. I have no maiden name for her. He died abt 1863 in Marion Co., Ohio. I have census info Israel for 1860 and some I believe to be him for 1830 and 1840.
Israel had 3 children that I know of. One of them was Fredrick W. Houseworth born 1814 in Bucks Co. He Married Ursula Scribner in 1839 in Delaware Co., Ohio. In 1865 he died in Delaware Co. I have info on him in the 1840, 1850, and 1860 census.
Fred had quite a few children one of them being Elizabeth (Libby) Houseworth. She was born on 1846 in Delaware Co., Ohio. In 1868 she married Samuel Patton in Marion Co. Ohio. She died in 1923 in Montcalm Co. Michigan. I have census info on this family for all the decades from 1850 thru 1920 except for 1890. She and her husband and several dozen kin and kinder are buried in the Carson City Cemetary in Montcalm County.
Any other info and or corrections would be great
