A letter from Charles Raymond Hause, 1969:


  • CHARLES RAYMOND HAUSE (John Hause, William, William Jr., Harris, Elmer, Howard Hause) is my 4th cousin, 3x removed; Charles was born on 24 Nov 1913 in Blaine County, Oklahoma, to Howard Alison Hause (1881-1957) and Flora May Babbs Hause (1881-1952). Charles became a chemist, but did extensive genealogical research on the Hause family in New York, attempting to connect William Hause (1750-1818) to Palatine immigrant Johann Christian Hauß (b. @ 1666), but that theory is still unproven. Charles died on 30 Mar 2002 in Arnold, Jefferson County, Missouri, and is buried at Waterloo Cemetery in Waterloo, De Kalb County, Indiana. Read a 1969 letter from Charles tracing the moves of the William Hause family here. His obituary:

    St Louis Post-Dispatch: HAUSE, CHARLES R. 88, died in his sleep of congestive heart failure, at the Woodlands Nursing Home in Arnold, MO, on March 30, 2002; Charley is survived by his wife of 66 years, Almina K.'Kitty' Hause (nee Hine), of Arnold; by his son Dr. Steven C. Hause of St. Louis, and by his daughter-in-law, Dr. Kathryn A. Walterscheid of St. Louis; he was preceded in death by his other son, Sheldon K. Hause, of Washington D.C. Charley was born on a farm in Oklahoma and always remembered a childhood braiding the hair of an Indian Chief. Moving to the big city, he graduated as Salutatorian of his class at age 15, leading to the distinguished career as a chemist. He served as a chemical analyst for the Wayne Foods division of Allied Mills (today Continental Grain) for 49 years, in Fort Wayne, Indiana; Portsmouth, Virginia; and Libertyville, Illinois. He retired to Shawnee, Oklahoma in 1979. No local service. Burial in the Hine family plot in the old Waterloo Cemetery, Waterloo, Indiana. Memorials to the History Department Gift Fund at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. The family is being served by the Heiligtag Funeral Home of Arnold, Missouri.
