   Here's a list of church records compiled from the Grace Stubbs-Rice collection at Cornell. The list was a part of her "History of the House Family of the Mohawk Valley Region of New York State." according to family historian Jim House, who copied the list in March of 1998. I've added records that were missed, as well as photos. Unfortunately, there is little those remaining churchbooks that can be used as documented proof of Hauß family lineage—meaning there is next to nothing about Elias, Johannes or Peter. We have the most information on Rheinhardt, Elizabeth, Jurrian (George).
