Yes, we connect on this Eusey/Jusi family! This is an unusual name and, besides my close relation, I have corresponded with only a couple Eusey people who are related. I know there are Euseys still living in Crawford and near-by Richland County (and I met a couple Eusey cousins at my grandfather's funeral in Shelby, OH, in March 2000). There are at least four Euseys living in Galion yet.
My great-grandmother was Lola Delight (Eusey) Sand (1905-1985), daughter of John and Mary Ella (Mills) Eusey of North Robinson, Crawford County, Ohio. John Eusey (1869-1942) was the brother of your Benjamin Franklin Eusey (1871-1955) who married Margaret "Maggie" Aurelia Bogan (1876-1948).
"Your" B. Frank Eusey (1871-1955) and "my" John Eusey (1869-1942) were sons of Samuel Jusi/Eusey (1814/18-1886; a native of Aeschi, Frutigen, Canton of Berne, Switzerland) and Theodora "Dora" Johanna (Newhouse/Neuhaus) Jusi/Eusey (1837-1899; a native of Sidenbuch, Hessen, Germany).
"Our" Samuel Eusey was the son of Johannes Jusi (1767-1829) and Anna Andrist (1780-1850) of Aeschi, Switzerland. Two other sons of Johannes and Anna (Andrist) Jusi also immigrated to America: Johannes and Christian. Some of them lived in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.
One of the Christman "cousins" --I think it was John "Elwood" (b. 1911), son of Aaron and Mary "Barbara" (Eusey) Christman-- traveled to Switzerland a couple times. Coral (Eusey) Eckstein, daughter of Michael Eusey (1864-1914), also visited Switzerland and died over there in 1966. Coral's daughter, Phyllis, is living is Woodinville, WA and corresponds with my Grandma Rosella, her second cousin.
I have quite a bit on the Eusey family from the papers of my great-grandmother, and letters from the Cristman, Stogie and Eusey "cousins". I have a transcribed copy of the family record from the Bible of Samuel and Dora Jusi/Eusey, copies of church records from Aeschi, Switzerland, and obituary and other notices for many family members in Ohio.
I also have a large copied photograph of a Eusey family reunion in 1930 sent to me by Helen Nelson of Iberia, OH; her husband, Don, descends from a Eusey through the Stogie family. They was able to identify a half dozen people; my grandma Rosella recognized about two dozen more and I am waiting to see if cousin Phyllis recognizes anyone else. Maybe you could identify some relation too?!
I do not have Woodrow "Tubby" Christman in my file, but if he was a son of Aaron and Barbara (Eusey) Christman, then he was a brother to Leah Alberta (b. 1902), Herman Henry (b. 1908), and John "Elwood" (b. 1911). I have a letter from Herman to my great-grandmother with genealogical information, but these three were the only children he listed for his parents, Aaron and Barbara; and the obituary of Barbara (Eusey) Christman (1874-1964) does not mention a Woodrow "Tubby". We'll sort it out!
I will send you some e-mails with attachments in Microsoft word: information on the Jusi/Eusey, Neuhaus/Newhouse, and Andrist families. I have only been at this family history project a short time, too, but have been blessed with sentimental grandparents who never threw anything away and lots of pieces of the puzzle coming together! I am very pleased to receive your message and very happy to share and exchange information! I am interested in information on any cousins named Eusey and anyone who descends from "our" Euseys.
