AUGUSTUS HAUSE was born on 14 Jan 1804 and married JANE JONES (b: 4 Nov 1802 in New Jersey). They moved to Royalton, New York, near the Erie Canal and prospered on a large farm, thanks to the expanded exporting opportunities available because of the new canal. The Hause family attended the First Baptist Church of Christ in Royalton, organized in 1822 "at the schoolhouse that stood near the graveyard in the neighborhood that is now called Locust Tree." The first church was built in 1823, then moved a half-mile east to a new building in 1869, and the name was changed to the Royalton Community Church. (Locust Tree is now known as Dysinger's Corners, as that family opened a hotel and post office there.) A cemetery stood next to the original church/schoolhouse. Jane Hause died on September 8, 1850. Like everything else concerning Jane, there were few details handed down about the death. She was buried down the road from the farm at the church cemetery. They are buried at Dysinger Cemetery, on the North side of Bunker Hill Road, between Gasport and Ward, Royalton Township, Niagara County, New York.

They were still alive for the 1910 census, and still living in Royalton. He died on Tuesday 17 Sep 1912 when he fell out of an apple tree and broke his neck, at the age of 82 (North Tonawanda NY Evening News, 18 Sep 1912, p. 1). Catherine died in 1926, and is buried in Mt. Royal Cemetery, in Gasport, Niagara Co., New York. Their children:

ii. Margaret Edna Vodra was born on 11 Apr 1899 in New York. In 1940 she lives at the New Jersey YWCA and is a librarian. Who's Who in Library Service: A biographical directory of professional librarians of the United States and Canada. Third edition. Edited by Dorothy Ethlyn Cole. New York: Grolier Society, 1955. She died on 8 Sep 1984 in Getzville, Erie, New York.
Laban Augustus Hause was born on 10 March 1831. He moved to St. Clair Co., Michigan in the mid-1850's after marrying Sarah Deissinger on 20 Sep 1854. and his brother John J. Hause (b. 18 Oct 1829), their wives (the Dysinger sisters) had each been willed about a hundred acres of prime farmland in Lockport by their late fatherenough for a small private farm.
Laban Augustus Hause (1831-1906)|
But Laban and John had the bright idea of selling that expensive New York land, and using the money to buy more property in an area where the land was cheaper. The plan was to move west and carve out their own place from the wilderness... and the new frontier of Michigan was beckoning.
So in the mid-1850s, John, Laban, and Basheba Hause, along with cousins-in-law Daniel and Nicholas Dysinger, headed to the new state with their familieseither taking a steamship up the Erie Canal, or by land using teams of oxen or mules, towards the untamed wilderness (read: cheap land).
The group moved to Riley Center, St. Clair County, Michigan, and started over. Laban and Sarah settled a large section of wilderness on the border of St. Clair and Macomb counties, and local "Otchipwes" (Ojibwe Indians) helped them survive until Spring, when Laban could clear the trees and brush to build a farm, on what is now 13185 Belle River Road in Memphis, Michigan.
He and Sarah then sold the 100 acres of property that she had inherited from her late father in Lockport, for $500. The document was signed by Sarah's mother, Catharine, and accepted by Laban "House" and Sarah in St. Clair county, Michigan. (On the next page in the book of deeds, Catherine sold more of the Lockport land willed to her other children, including Eve Dysinger-Hause.)
The various Hause and Dysinger families then settled in, and even began to expand: County records show that on the 13th of May, 1857, 21 year-old Basheba married Charles H. Oaks, 23, of Riley. The witnesses were "Loban" Hause & John J. Hause, also of Riley; the wedding was performed by Minister William P. Russell.
Living on the edge of the Michigan wilderness left the Hause family far away from doctors, hospitals, and the superior medical attention available back in New York (which in truth wasn't all that great, anyway). There were only ten licensed physicians in all of St. Clair County. They charged from five dollars for minor surgeries, up to a hundred dollars for major ones. There was also a fee of five to twenty-five dollars for midwifery, which Sarah needed in 1857 for the birth of a child:
Sarah died on 16 Mar 1859 after complications from giving birth to their daughter, Elma. Laban then remarried, to a woman named Melissa Sanderson (1839-1921). Laban died on 14 Mar 1906 in Memphis, MI (see his Death Certificate here). He and Melissa had the following children:
b. Alice Hause was born on 16 Aug 1861 in Emmett, St. Clair County, Michigan. She married Seneca Young (1857-1898) on on 13 Aug 1879 in Millington, just days before her 18th birthday. Seneca died on 9 Aug 1898 in Saginaw City, Saginaw, Michigan, and Alice raised Frank as a single mother. A letter by Melissa Hause from 1920 says Alice was living in a tent in California with her sister-in-law, Rebecca. In 1930, Alice lived alone in Memphis, next to Ida Dysinger, then moved in with her son. She died on 24 Mar 1939 at Highland Park General Hopsital. She was buried at Millington Cemetery in Millington, Tuscola County, Michigan. They had one son:

2. Carleton Marchant Hause was born in 24 July 1917. He started out working in a Michigan factory for his father-in-law, but ended up teaching in Southern California with his wife, Jeanne May Brunner. "Bud" loved the water, whether in his youth at the cabin on Vaughn Lake, or raising his kids, Carl Jr. and Marjorie, on the shores of Lake Erie in Gibraltar, MI, or at his retirement home on a tributary to the Colorado River at 85344 Parker, LA Paz, Arizona... or finally the Pacific Ocean, where his ashes were spread in 1983 by his loving wife and children:
a. Carleton Marchant Hause, Jr., was born November 25, 1939 in Detroit, Michigan to Carleton Sr. and Jeanne Brunner Hause. Having grown up on the shore of Lake Erie with his parents and sister, Marjorie, Carl had an adventurous spirit and enjoyed boating and fishing. He graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Education. While attending college, Carl met his future bride, Martha Ellen Wenk, and after five brief months of dating, they were married on June 13, 1959. In July of 1961, along with their newborn son Jeffrey, they followed his parents and sister out to San Diego, California where Carl began his teaching career. He continued in the line of educators that started with his great- great- grandmother when he began teaching math at Washington Junior High School in Vista, California. While at Washington, Carl began his legendary coaching career in both track and football. In his first nine years of coaching track, Coach Hause compiled a 63-1 dual meet record.
In 1965, Carl and Marti added to their family by adopting Kathy. Two years later they adopted Eric and then moved to their current home where they would spend the rest of their lives together. In 1968, with the birth of Michele, their family was complete.
In 1980, Carl began coaching at Vista High School and in 1984 he was named the head track coach. In addition, Carl also coached JV football and cross-country. In 1987, he left coaching track after 16 years with an overall win-loss record of 105-5 to take the position of Athletic Director at Vista High. He served as Athletic Director until 1997 when he retired after over 40 years of teaching in the district.
In retirement Carl was as busy as ever, being able to devote more time to his fantasy sports leagues, his love of growing rare fruit, gardening, and reading James Lee Burke and Robert B. Parker novels. He was also an avid game player, loved to research genealogy, and enjoyed morning walks on the beach. Carl's retirement also afforded him time to more deeply pursue his faith journey and love for the Lord. The primary way he lived out his faith was through his membership at King of King's Lutheran Church. There he served as a church council member, financial secretary, Sunday School teacher, Men's Prayer Breakfast leader, and Intern Committee Chairman. During his teaching career, Carl was involved with Sunrise Kiwanis, and in retirement was heavily involved with the Vista Golden K Kiwanis, and their scholarship foundation, where he continued to show his care and concern for students. He also volunteered at Meals with Love.
Carl was very proud of his grandchildren and loved to visit them in New York, Stockton, Napa, Denver and enjoyed being involved in all their activities. Carl loved teaching and coaching as it gave him the opportunity to impact the lives of students and athletes. He was known for his great sense of humor and it gave him a unique ability to break down walls and bring people together in classroom and life situations. Carl was a great man loved by so many.
He is survived by his wife Marti, his sister Margy, son Jeff and his wife Lori Ann, daughter Kathy and her husband Hal Larsen, son Eric and his wife Mary, daughter Michele and her husband John Houston, and eight grandchildren: Sasha Larsen, Dylan Larsen, Camille Larsen, Madeline Hause, Atticus Hause, Phin Lee Hause, and Sara and Avery Houston. They and scores of students, athletes, and congregation members will miss him dearly.
Carl died from a heart attack on 18 Aug 2014 in Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, CA. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you would donate to Vista Golden K-Kiwanis Foundation, which is a fund for student scholarships, at 14212 Pebble Beach Way, Valley Center, CA 92082 or the King of Kings Memorial Fund.
