Hause Family Tree

  • Name: Phin Lee HAUSE
  • Surname: Hause/House/
  • Given Name: Phin Lee
  • Birth: 01 Nov 2013, Kaiser Permanente Hospital, 1600 Eureka Rd, Roseville, CA
  • NOTES: Phin was named after her seven-time great-grandfather, Phinehas Briggs, who was a minuteman at Bunker Hill and other battles during the Revolutionary war. We have known since very early on in my pregnancy that Phin was having a hard go of it—so the name of a fighter seemed perfect for our little one who has worked so hard to soldier on.

This, before she even saw Phin's glowing hand. So here's our little space explorer, resting after a day's adventure..."
