Before he died his was profiled in the local newspaper, giving family genealogists excellent information about the Hauses in Fayette: "By chance last week we passed a night with the aged pioneer Mr Charles Hause on Hause's Point on the west shore of Cayuga Lake. In the morning we learned it was Mr Hause's birthday (86th) and that he had spent eighty of these years on the same point of land. He was born of Dutch parents in the town of Warwick, Orange Co. N.Y. March 3, 1799, a babe in his mothers arms when the "Father of his Country Died". In 1802 his parents removed to the "lake country" and purchased a small place called Ovid Center, the same farm lately owned by Geo Helfuean, son-in-law of your townsman A. Flickinger, Esq. In 1805 or 1809 his father sold this purchase to his brother ... and bought out the improvements of a squatter on a two hundred and fifty acre lot which from him has ever since been called Hause's Point. Here Charles first distinct memory of practical life begins, although he now recalls several incidents of their carving into the wilderness; two weeks on the way in a covered wagon, as was then usual drawn by a yoke of oxen. Very few advantages were offered his youth, but few schools, no churches and their nearest mill was at Waterloo. The wild unbroken forest was spread out all around them with here and there only a settler. The timid gentle deer fed with their herds on their fields of grain till he had reached his early youth. When he had reached his majority he bought thirty acres of the rear part of his father's purchase and began life for himself. In 1826 he married Miss Elizabeth Young, and together they toiled adding to his little lot which with a portion set off to him from his father's estate now makes his farm one hundred and four acres of excellent grain land. Five children blessed their union, two sons and three daughters. One of these sons he gave to his country and he fell in the war for the Union at Cold Harbor, Va., and now lies in an unknown and unnamed grave. His wife, the faithful sharer of his struggles and triumphs, died in 1865 and two of the three daughters since then. He married a second time but was a second time bereaved and now, like a lone forest tree, almost branchless and leafless, blasted by many storms and winds of adversity, he waits his own removal."

            iii. Nelson Harry Hause was born on 12 Jun 1911 in Irondequoit, Monroe, New York. On 19 Dec 1934 he married (1) Marie Ann McHugh (b. 1911) in Monroe County, and after that union ended, he married (2) Marjorie Jean Peterson (1916-2012) on 5 Oct 1941. Nelson was an amazing guy; born poor, he opened a service station in 1938, then turned that into a Packard dealership, a home trailer business and a used car dealership. He parlayed those businesses into real estate holdings: first hotels and motels, and then ended up owning owned 4,100 apartment units in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In 1955, Nelson and several silent partners bought the Flamingo Hotel, a 137-foot, 15-story luxury apartment house in Philadelphia. Built in 1950, it was the first interracial apartment building in the city and began admitting tenants in 1951. Eleanor Roosevelt mentioned the building in a speech about the international view of how Americans treat minorities. Jazz greats Arthur Prysock, Charlie Parker, Fats Navarro, and Cliff Brown all rented apartments there. But there were money problems from the start (it was built with a loophole in FHA loans and none of of the loan amount had been paid back yet). Strapped for cash, Hause had to raise the rents and vacancy increased from 5% to 22%. In response, Hause furnished a portion of the apartments and was able to rent them out on a weekly basis. Though he was able to keep vacancy down, the transient nature of the new residents damaged the sense of community within the building, which he ultimately sold in 1957. ( https://www.ocfrealty.com/naked-philly/temple-area/delorean-time-machine-flamingo-apartments ) In the late 1950s he also invested $173,000 into some sort of foreign motion picture rights deal, which would result in years of courtroom litigation for his poor widow Marjorie (Records & Briefs New York State Appellate Division, Index No. 28228/1961). Nelson died on 2 Feb 1960 in Rochester, Monroe, New York, when he registered at someone else's hotel and took his own life. The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported that his body was found in a seventh floor room of the Manger Hotel in Rochester. He died clutching $340 in a paper clip and a letter "indicating despondency." An empty bottle of sleeping pills was found in an overnight bag beside the bed. Nelson also left behind a 15-year-old daughter:

Joe was born and raised in Niagara Falls where he attended LaSalle High School and captained its football team. After marrying his wife Patty (the former Patricia Jane Parsons of Royal Oak, Michigan) and graduating from Antioch College, Joe served as a naval officer in Washington D.C.

        Laban Augustus Hause
        Laban Augustus Hause (1831-1906)
        Has Children 2. 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 father—enough for a small private farm.
           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 families—either 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:


          Elma Hause Jackson (1857-1942)
          a. Elma Jane Hause was born on 16 Mar 1857. After the death of her mother, Sarah was raised by Laban and his second wife, Melissa Sanderson-Hause. Elma married William Jackson (b. 8 Feb 1852 in England), a Freight Agent for the Owensboro and Nashville Railroad, on 14 Nov 1874 (wedding announcement). Elma died on 3 Mar 1942 in Montclair, Essex County, New Jersey (Elma in her old age). They're buried together at Rosehill Elmwood Cemetery, Owensboro, Daviess County, Kentucky. Their children:

            i. Charles Hause Jackson was born on 25 Sep 1875. Charles lived in Upper Mountclair, New Jersey, and worked for an engineering firm in Manhattan.

Many of the photographs, obituaries and ceremonial announcements on the following pages are from those scrapbooks. Charles died in Aug 1962.

            ii. William Carlisle Jackson was born on 7 May 1884. He died on 16 Oct 1888 in Owensboro, Daviess County, Kentucky and is buried beside his mother.

                Has 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.

      On 19 Dec 1852, at the age of 48, Augustus married (2) Fannie CHRISTOPHER (18 Oct 1825 - 9 Sep 1901), according to the Niagara Democrat newspaper. She was just 26 years old, and 4 years older than Augustus's first son, John. Lockport Daily Journal, Lockport, N.Y., Tuesday Evening, September 10, 1901: "Mrs. Fannie S. Howes (SIC) died Monday morning, September 9th, 1901, at her late residence at Royalton Center, aged 76 years. Her surviving relatives are one daughter, Mrs. Ella Miles (SIC) of Royalton, Three step-sons, John J Hawes of McNalls Corners, Laban Hawes of Memphis, Mich., and Augustus Hawes of Sanborn, N.Y., one stepdaughter, Mrs. Barbara Oakes of Marlette, Mich., one brother, William Christophr (SIC), of Old Mission, Mich.

        5. Sarah A. Hause was born on 8 Sep 1863. She is buried with her father and Jane Jones-Hause in the Dysinger-Royalton Union Baptist Cemetery.

        6. Ella Hause was born on 15 Sep 1867 in Royalton, Niagara Co., NY. In 1893, she married George Arthur Wiles (b. 1868 in Genesee, New York), the son of Timothy H. Wiles (1829-1914) and Hannah Haight (1825-1891). In the 1900 Census, they lived in Royalton, renting from Ella's mother, Fannie. Lockport Union, Sun & Journal, Lockport, N.Y., Monday Evening, April 19, 1926: "Royalton Center, Apr. 19—The funeral of Mrs. Ella Wiles, wife of Arthur Wiles, aged 58 years, who died at the City Hospital on Monday afternoon, April 12, was held on Thursday at 2 o'clock at the late residence and 3:30 o'clock at the Royalton M.E. Church, of which she had been a member for many years and was largely attended. The funeral services were in charge of Rev. J. A. Peacock of Holland, a former pastor, and Rev. H. G. Stacey. Miss Florence Woodworth and Rev. Stacey each sang a vocal solo. The floral tributes were many and beautiful. Internment took place in Chestnut Ridge cemetery in the family lot." The death date was never filled in on George Arthur Wiles's burial plot, so it's unsure if he's buried there and never negotiated to have a date carved in, or if he's just buried somewhere else.

    5. AZUBAH HAUSE was born on 28 March 1806. He died three days after his fifteenth birthday.

    6. BELINDA HAUSE was born on 28 April 1808. She married James Updike (1 Oct 1803 - 27 Sep 1888) on 21 Jan 1829: "Married—On Thursday last by Rev. Lane—Mr. James Updyke to Miss Belinda Hause both of Fayette." (From the Waterloo Gazette, published by George Lewis.) They had at least ten children (listed below). They moved to Tecumseh, Lenawee, Michigan, where Belinda died on 30 Nov 1873. Their children:

        1. Charity W Updike was born in 1829 in New York. She married Rufus Keyser (1826-1878) and died on 9 Feb 1851 in Lenawee, Michigan. She's buried at Brookside Cemetery, Tecumseh, Lenawee County, Michigan, section "I."

          a. Matilda Keyser was born in 1851, and died the same year.

          b. Wesley B Keyser was born on 8 Feb 1851 in Tecumseh Twp., Lenawee Co., Michigan. Portrait and Biographical Album of Lenawee County, p. 419: "The subject of this biographical sketch resides on a tract of 135 acres of land in Clinton Township, Section 17, and is one of the substantial and vigorous young farmers who discover and diffuse new ideas among the thoughtful who follow agricultural pursuits. His beautiful home, from which an enchanting view of the surrounding countryside may be had, is named 'Maple Hill Stock Farm,' the euphonius title of a beautiful and valuable property. Mr. Keyser makes a specialty of stock-raising, and his farm is well supplied with buildings adapted to that calling. He located here in 1883. The subject of this sketch was born on his father's farm in Tecumseh Township, on the 8th February 1851, and is the son of Rufus and Charity (Updike) Keyser, the former a successful stock-dealer and farmer. The grandfather, who was named Henry, emigrated to Michigan in 1830, where he bought land in Tecumseh Township, now the township of Clinton, on which he lived untili a few years before his death, which occured in the same township at the advanced age of eighty-four years. His wife, whose maiden name was Sallie Conner, had preceded him to her eternal rest a few years before, in about the eightieth year of her age. Rufus Keyser was but a boy when he came with his father to Michigan, and assisted in the arduous labors of building up a home, which he shared with his father until his majority, learning to be resolute, frugal and industrious. Finally, after working the homestead two years, he secured a title to forty acres in Tecumseh Township, to which he added until he owned at his death 290 acres of well-improved land. Soon after this purchase, he was united in marriage with Miss Charity Updike, who died at the birth of twin children: our subject, and a sister Matilda, who died at the age of six months. Rufus Keyser was a second time married, to Esther Updike, a sister of his first wife. They lived together twenty-two years and became the parents of two children, of whom Milburn, the only surviving child, is attending school in Tecumseh. Mr. Keyser was again married, to Elizabeth Shafer, and died at his home in 1878, at the age of fifty-two years. Intelligence, good judgment and tact were qualities that went to make up the successful buyer and seller of stock he proved himself to be. A life-long Democrat, unswerving in his convictions, he merited and enjoyed the confidence of those who knew him. He was Commissioner of Highways for several years, the duties of which office he faithfully performed. We now return to the one whose name adorns the head of this article. Reared at home, surrounded with home love, with educational facilities, eagerly taken advantage of, coupled with a fertile mind, we have here a practical, strong man, with a well rounded character. In his early life school teaching engaged his attention for several years. He selected as a bride Miss Emma Welch, who was born in Franklin Township, December 19, 1853, and is the daughter of William Welch, now living in Clinton. Her father was formerly a successful farmer in Franklin, where his wife died several years ago. Mr. Keyser first owned a farm of fifty-seven acres and located there in 1874. He removed from there to the old homestead after the death of his father and remained there until he removed to his present home in 1883. Mrs. Keyser was reared and married in Franklin Township, and became the mother of four children, one of whom is deceased. The others are named Leora E., Leon K., and Ethel May. Mr. and Mrs. Keyser are members of the Presbyterian Church at Tecumseh, and Mr. Keyser is now bearing the honors of School Inspector and Justice of the Peace, while he has held other positions of trust, always with credit to himself and satisfaction to the community. He is a progressive, intelligent and popular young man, Democrat in politics, but able to see in political principles more than partyism means."

        9. James Updike, Jr. From Portrait and biographical album of Lenawee County, Mich., containing full page portraits and biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens of the county, together with portraits and biographies of all the governors of Michigan and of the presidents of the United States, published by Chapman Brothers, 1885, p. 249, 250: "JAMES UPDIKE, JR. The finely appointed little farm of eighty acres which occupies a portion of section 13, Franklin Township, became the property of the subject of this sketch in 1875, and he has since bent his energies to its improvement and cultivation, with most admirable results. The proprietor is a gentleman of more than ordinary intelligence and good taste, and while having a proper respect for the wherewithal to make life comfortable, has embellished his homestead with the various features which render it one of the most attractive spots in the township. The buildings are of modern style, the fields are fenced in a neat and substantial manner, and everything about the premises is kept in first-class order, nothing allowed to go to waste or become an offense to the eye. Around the residence are fruit and shade trees with a fine orchard in the rear, while the live stock and machinery give evidence of the care and thoughtfulness of the proprietor. Our subject, the son of one of the earliest pioneers of this county, first opened his eyes to the light in the primitive log cabin, which was the first dwelling of his parents in Tecumseh Township, and which was located upon land which had been but slightly cultivated before his father took possession of it. The latter, also James Updike, a native of New York State, was reared to manhood in his native county, and married Miss Belinda Hause, whose birthplace was not far from the early home of her husband. They continued in the Empire State until after the birth of three children, when they came to Michigan and located upon the land which they occupied until retiring from active labor. The parents of our subject came to this county prepared to meet hardships alnd difficulties, and proved themselves equal to the emergency. They succeeded in building up a comfortable home, occupying the log cabin but a few years and then removing into a good frame dwelling. The father was a man of excellent judgment, kind and generous as a neighbor and friend, and became known as one of the most thorough and successful farmers of Tecumseh Township. He is still living, and makes his home with his son Martin G., a resident of Tecumseh Township. He is now over eighty-four years of age, having been born Oct. 1, 1803. During his residence of over forty years in this county he has made many warm friends, and has abundant reason to feel that his life and labors have not been in vain. The wife and mother departed this life at the homestead Nov. 30, 1873, when about sixty-five years old. Both parents were devoted members of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the days of their youth and strength, and the father is still identified with the old society. James Updike, Jr., was the eighth in a family of ten children, four sons and six daughters. Of these, three sons and two daughters are living and residents of this county. James, in conmmon with his brothers and sisters, remained under the home roof and availed himself of the instruction afforded at the district school. Upon reaching manhood he was married, April 2, 1873, at the home of the bride in Tecumnseh Township, to Miss Atlanta A., daughter of John T. and Caroline H. (Thompson) Bates. Mr. and Mrs. Bates were natives of New York State and were married in Cortland County, where their three children were born, the wife of our subject being the youngest of the family. Her birth took place Nov. 5, 1853, and she was fifteen years of age when her father came to Michigan and located on a farm in Tecumseh Township. The mother had died in Cortland County, N. Y., in 1863, at the age of thirty-seven years. Mr. Bates subsequently married Miss Salina Coyle, who accompanied him to the West and remained here until after the death of Mr. Bates, which took place in the village of Tecumseh, July 31, 1877, when he was sixty-three years of age; Mrs. B. then returned to New York and is now a resident of Homer, that State. Mr. Bates was a man of much force of character, and became quite prominent in the politics of the county. He affiliated with the Republican party and with his estimable wife, was a member in good standing of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The wife of our subject continued with her father until her marriage, in the meantime receiving a good education and developing those elements of character which have constituted her a true wife and mother. Of her union with Mr. Updike there have been born two sons—Earl B., Dec. 7, 1876, and Lucius C., Dec. 29, 1878. Mr. Updike, politically, uniformly votes the Republican ticket. By good management and industry he has accumulated a competence and has something laid by for a rainy day."
