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."

The tintype image at right is the only known photographic portrait of Augustus. 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.

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 fatherenough for a small private farm.
Laban A 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. Laban died on 14 Mar 1906 in Memphis, MI (see his Death Certificate here). He and Melissa had the following children:

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.

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."

10. 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 n0ow 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 sonsEarl 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."

Perhaps Parks' greatest legacy are the 160 fellows he trained in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus. Many of these former fellows have gone on to leadership positions within the field themselves.Dr. Kenneth Wright, a former Parks fellow and current Director of Pediatric Ophthalmology Research and Education at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, published a tribute to Dr. Parks in the medical text Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus, calling him "the driving force that has led to the development and maturation of our specialty, pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus."
He travelled extensively, leading opthalmologic seminars worldwide, and was a pioneer in enhancing opthalmologic practice in the Eastern block, especially in the Soviet Union, during the thaw in relations between the Eastern Bloc and the United States. One story he told was of being allowed to use a secret subway tunnel between East and West Berlin to travel between the two zones to avoid the checkpoints. He was a patriot and loyal American.
Parks and his late wife, Angeline Miller Parks, raised eleven children. Following the death of his first wife, Parks and Martha McSteen Parks married and resided in Washington, D.C. for 14 years prior to his death.

8. Lyman E Hause (1843-1910) fought in Company F, 26th MI Infantry during the Civil War, served in NYC during the "draft riots," was present at the Appomattox Court House when CSA General Lee surrendered to US General Grant in 1865. Copied from Lenawee Co. records of 1888: "Lyman E. Hause, a prominent farmer and old resident of Ridgeway Township, resided on section 4, where he owns a fine property of eighty acres, which is known as the old Hause homestead. Mr. Hause became the owner of this property in 1878, since which time his skillful management has resulted in greatly improving it. Although incurring a considerable debt at the time of his purchase, his energy and industry will soon enable him to clear it of all encumbrance. Our subject was born where he now resides. Dec. 21, l841 and is the son of Sanford Hause, who was born and reared in Seneca County, N. Y., where he grew to manhood and selected Miss Lydia Swarthout for his companion in life. She had been reared in the same neighborhood, and surrounded by similar influences as her husband. The parents continued to reside on a farm in Seneca County until their household was increased by the birth of four children, when, feeling the necessity for better opportunities to use the limited means at their command, they decided to join the tide of emigration which was then setting toward Southern Michigan and which place accordingly became their home more than fifty years ago. The country was then in its primitive condition, and the settlement below the Ridge, in Ridgeway Township, had few inhabitants other than the wild game and animals which the settlers found there upon their arrival. This section was then very low and flat, being thought by many to have originally formed a part of Lake Erie. The land was exceedingly wet and muddy, so much so that it was known as 'the Muddy Swamp,' and was greatly dreaded by travelers. The elder Hause took up his home on this flat land, building himself a log hut on the principal road. When travel began to increase, he enlarged his original cabin and converted it into a public house, known in those times as a tavern, which he operated for some years successfully and gained the reputation of being a genial landlord. The muddy condition of the roads contributed to his prosperity, as it frequently necessitated delay on the part of travelers, and he kept many of his guests two nights. Travelers would get within a mile or so of the house, and leaving their wagons in the muddy road, would proceed to the tavern and put up, in order to give their worn-out teams a chance to recuperate. The next day they would not get very far on the other side of the hotel, and would return to the house and spend another night of comfort and good cheer. An incident told by one of the guests who stopped it this wayside inn will serve to illustrate the condition of the primitive roads in that section. The author of the story was a real Yankee, and some allowance should perhaps be made for the exercise of his imagination. As he was coming through the swamp, so he says, and was nearing the tavern, he saw a hat, as he supposed, lying on the ground. He reached down from his animal, which was sinking deep into the bog, to pick up the hat, but was told by a voice from under it to let it alone, as the wearer was all right, since he had a good horse under him. The meat supplied for Father Hause's guests consisted chiefly of venison. which was prepared by the landlord's faithful wife. Sanford Hause lived to a ripe old age, and died Feb. 15, 1885. He filled the office of Supervisor for several years, and was many times elected Justice of the Peace, being known for many years by the familiar name of 'Squire Hause'. He was a charter member of the First Christian Church of Ridgeway, of which his wife, who still survives, is a member, as was also her daughter, Mrs. Coryell, of Ridgeway, who is now deceased. The only opportunities for education which our subject enjoyed were those derived from the common schools of his neighborhood, enlarged by his own observation and a general reading of good books and periodicals. He was a soldier in the Iate war, having enlisted Aug. 12, 1862, in Company F. 26th Michigan Infantry, commanded by Capt. Saviers, which became a part of the Army of the Potomac. Company F, however, was detached and assigned to guard duty during the whole three years of service, at Alexandria. Va. Our subject thus saw little fighting, but was exposed to many physical dangers and hardships, from which he contracted a fever and other forms of disease, which have somewhat impaired his health. He was honorably discharged at Jackson, June 14,1865, and upon his return home he resumed his agricultural pursuits, in which he has been engaged ever since. Mr. Hause has been twice married. his first wife being Miss Emma Pocklington, to whom he was united Feb. 17, 1866, at Ida Station, Monroe Co., Mich. She was a native of Yorkshire, England, born about 1846, and when a mere child came to this country with her parents, who settled in Ridgeway Township, this county, where they are still living, on a pleasant little farm. By her union with our subject she became the mother of three children--William S., Irva and Emma--all of whom are still living at home. She died at the birth of the last child, Sept. 23, 1875. Mr. Hause was married a second time, to Miss Caroline Kniffen, who was born in Seneca County, N. Y., Sept. 13, 1839, and came to Lenawee County, Mich., with her parents while yet a child. She is the daughter of Isaac L. and Eliza (Fowle) Kniffen, who were married in Seneca County, the place of their birth. They came to Michigan in 1843, locating on a farm in Ridgeway Township, where the mother is still living at a good old age. She was deprived of her faithful partner in the year 1881. Both were charter members of the First Christian Church of Ridgeway. To Lyman and Caroline Hause one child has been born, a son, Clarence. Our subject and wife are active members and workers in the Christian Church, while in politics Mr. H. is a Prohibitionist." Children of Lyman and Emma Pocklington (1844-1875) were:

1. Loretta Mae Hause (b. 1937), who married Victor Thornton Elliott: "Wedding rings and vows exchanged in St. Luke's Episcopal Church united Loretta Mae Hause, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank LeRoy Hause of Long Beach, and Victor Thornton Elliott, son of Lt. (USMC, Ret.) and Mrs. Ellsbury B. Elliott, Lakewood. For the ceremony performed by her uncle, the Rev. Bertrand M. Hause, and the Rev. Hiram Crosby, the bride wore a formal gown fashioned of Chantilly lace and crystalline tulle over white satin. Her fingertip-length illusion veil was attached to a matching crown of lace and pleated tulle scattered with pearls and iridescent sequins. She held a cascade of stephsnotis and white carnations centered with a yellow-throated white orchid."
Loretta Mae Hause (b. 1937)
ii. Bertrand M Hause was born on 28 Aug 1899 in Michigan. He married Ethel (b. 1899) and became a Reverend. He even performed the wedding of Frank's daughter, Loretta Mae Hause. He died on 10 Oct 1977 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles.

She died on Mar 1974 in Lapeer, Lapeer, Michigan. Their children:
Emma Elizabeth Hause (1875-1974) with sons Neil Roff (1898-1980) and Roland Clare (b. 1900).

d. Clarence Leander Hause was born on 19 Jul 1879 in Ridgeway, Lenawee, Michigan. He also married into the John Hause line, becoming the husband of Jane Louise Hause (1877-1962), the sister of Howard Roff Hause on 17 Jun 1905 in Clinton, Lenawee, Michigan. It is unclear if they knew they had common ancestors four-to-five generations before, in New York. He died in 1959 in Clinton, Lenawee, Michigan. He an Jane had a son:
Clarence Leander Hause (1879-1959).
i. John Sanford Hause was born on 13 Jan 1908 in Clinton, Lenawee, Michigan. He married Dorothy Elizabeth Smedley (1916-2007) and they had four children, listed below. He died on 16 Jun 1976 in Clinton, Lenawee, Michigan, leaving:
II. Elizabeth Hause was born on 12 February 1807 in Ovid Township, Seneca County, New York. She married Manley Swarthout on September 12, 1824 in Wayne, Schuyler County, New York. Elizabeth also married W. Wright Redding, and were living in Lenawee County, Michigan in 1835 (probably Ridgeway Township). She died on 18 January 1848 in Reading Township, Hillsdale County, Michigan and was buried in North Reading Cemetery, Hillsdale County, Michigan. For a history of their family, click here. The children then grew up in Michigan with Wright and their stepmother, Romina (Foster) Redding. Those children were:
1. Henry E. Redding (Hawes) was born between 1827 and 1831 in New York. Henry was born in New York but moved with his parents to Michigan around 1835. They lived in Lenawee County for a short time and then moved to Reading Township, Lenawee County, Michigan. Wen Henry was 24 years old, he married Lydia Ransom, daughter of Jason Ransom and Clarissa last name possibly Ressie, on 31 August 1853 in Branch County, Michigan. Lydia was born 1834 or 1835 in New York. She died on 10 September 1896 in Miller Township, Phelps County, Missouri. Henry joined the Union army during the Civil war. Military record: Redding, Henry E., Algansee. Enlisted in Company M, Fifth Cavalry, Aug. 12, 1862, at Algansee, for 3 years, age 31. Mustered Aug. 30, 1862. Deserted at Detroit, Mich., Nov. 5, 1862. Sometime between the end of the Civil War in 1865 and the summer of 1870 Henry and his family moved back to Michigan, settling in Tuscola County. They could not return to Branch County, where they had been living before the war because if the army would have been looking for him, the first place they would have looked was Branch County. (The sentence for desertion would have been hanging or firing squad.) The family name changes here from Redding to Hawes. Henry E. Redding changed his name to Henry E. Hawes and also changed the names of his wife and children to Hawes. 1870 Elkland Township, Tuscola County, Michigan: Henry 48, farmer, $1200 in real estate, born in New York; wife Lydia 36, born in New York. 1880 Elkland Township, Tuscola County, Michigan: Henry, 53, farmer, born in New York; wife Lydia 46, born in New York. Henry probably changed his name to Hawes because it was his mother's maiden name. His children:
a. George W. Redding was born 1854 to 1855 in Michigan. He died (date unknown). He is listed as 5 years old on the 1860 Alagansee Township, Branch County, Michigan census but not on the 1870 Elkland Township, Tuscola County, Michigan census with his parents.
Frank Hawes (1859-1933) and family
b. Francis Drake "Frank" Redding was born 1856 to 1857 in Michigan. Francis Redding became Francis Hawes in 1862 after his father, Henry, deserted from the Union army. Francis Hawes married Catherine Alice (Allie) Williams, daughter of David Weiss and Jane (Lucas) Williams. According to Alcona County History, What's In A Name, "Hawes, Frank, early settler who provided wood for the railroad fuel for Alger Smith railroad." Hawes Township, incorporated in 1893 in Alcona County, was named after Frank. According to booklet entitled "Early Pioneers", "Hawes township was named for Frank Hawes who provided wood and water for railroads throughout the area. He had the job of removing the tracks when the railroad was abandoned." He died on 16 Feb 1933 in Cooks, Schoolcraft, Michigan, and is buried at Cooks Cemetery. His children:

The triplets only lived a few hours and Blanche miscarried one set of twins while chopping wood (a piece of wood flew up and hit her). She was only 6 1/2 months along and the babies were so small that Fredrick put them in canning jars and buried them while Blanche was still sick in bed. According to a granddaughter of Blanche: "Blanche's life was a hard one because my grandfather (Fredrick) was a gambler for many years, then he met Christ, was saved and became a preacher but never really had a church, he just preached wherever he could.

That is until Veron found out he was going to have to report for basic training (WWII) soon. Veron and Harriet wanted to be married before he left, so on Friday, January 12, 1945 they went to Harriet's parents to ask for permission to be married, since Harriet was only 16.

iv. Homer Hawes was born on 23 Sep 1898 in Venus, Maries, Missouri. He died on 20 Nov 1912. Elsie (Hawes) McFarland believes Homer died of diphtheria. According to family stories, Homer traveled around with older brothers, Will and Floyd, working in logging camps after his mother, Elise (Wagonseller) Hawes died and his father, Charles Hawes, deserted the children.
v. Myrtle Katheren Hawes (McLaurin) was born on 6 Apr 1903 in Barton City, (Mud Lake) Alcona County, Michigan. "Katheren" was only 18 days old when her mother, Elsie (Wagonseller) died. Katheren was eventually taken in by neighbors, Albert and Phoebe Williams. Mytrle, Katheren's oldest child, recalled that Katheren was with the Williams's for a year or two and then was adopted by the McLaurins. She married Oscar A. Michaud and they had two children:
1. Lloyd Michaud married Sylvia. Their children are: Sylvia G., Katheren M., Branda M., Lloyd E. Jr. and Sharon R. Lloyd and Sylvia live in the Barton City area. They winter 20 miles south of Charleston because one of their daughters lives there.
2. Arden Michaud married James Bassellman and they have Lynn, Marilan, and Robert Lloyd. They also had a fourth child; Twila, who married Travis Lauecrinn (?) but Twila is now deceased.
After Oscar Michaud died, Katheren married Alexander Fernsmer (or Dernsemer). They had one son together; Oscar Fredrick Alexander, and he had 7 or 8 children.
In 1905, Charles Hawes married (2) Mildred Ketchepaugh (5 Aug 1892 in Mikado, Alcona, Michigan - 17 May 1978 in Muskegon, Muskegon, Michigan). "Millie" was traded by her father to Charles Hawes for some land and that she was "quite young" at the time. One source even believes that a lawsuit was filed against Charles for marrying Millie so young (about age 13). The judge agreed and threw him in jail but Millie remarried him when he was released. would leave Millie and the children for days with no money and no food. Millie would pick wild berries and can them with no sugar (because she didn't have any), and sometimes that was all they had to eat. Eventually the children were removed. After Millie divorced Charles, she married a man named Wally Knott who owned a gas station/store in the Hudson area of Lenawee County, Michigan. A step-granddaughter of Millie claims that once Millie divorced Charles, and got back on her feet, she found all of her children and put the family back together and they children really admired her for it. Wally Knott committed suicide at their residence. After that, Millie lived with Elise (Hawes) McFarland for awhile in her old age but when they tried to get her welfare, the state said that Millie had to be living on her own so they moved her into a house next door to Elise and fixed that up for her. Millie is buried in North Rome Cemetery next to her stepson, Floyd Hawes, and his wife, Monia. It seems that Charles Hawes's two families became close, and perhaps Millie became like the mother that Floyd lost when he was a boy, even though they were very close in age. Charles and Mildred had the following children:
vi. Homer Hawes was born on 13 Oct 1906 in Joplin, Newton, Missouri. He died on 20 Oct 1993 in Portland, Clackamas, Oregon. He married (1) Odessa and had a son:
On 12 Jan 1947, Homer married (2) Hazel Virginia Chambers (1908-1992) in Portland, Clackamas, Oregon, and they had one son:
vii. Fredrick Jacob "Fred" Hawes was born on 18 Feb 1908. According to a grandson, Fred was a logger by trade and lived in Cooks, Schoolcraft County in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Fred got out of bed one morning, ate breakfast and said he was going to lay down for a few minutes before going to work. Merle heard a funny noise a few minutes later and went to see what was happening, and he was dead. Fred's son, Gail died suddenly the same way and so did Fred's father, Charles. He died on 8 Sep 1974 in Manistique, Schoolcraft County, Michigan. Fred married Gladys Merle Andress (1909-1990) on 20 Jul 1929 in Caro, Tuscola, Michigan, and they had six children together:

Charles Hawes Obituary (.PDF file).
e. Jason Hawes was born 1866 to 1867 in Michigan. I believe that Jason Hawes died as a young child. He is listed on the 1870 census with his parents, but is not listed on the 1880 census with them.
f. Harriet E. Hawes was born on 2 May 1870 in Elkland Township, Tuscola County, Michigan.
g. Melvin L. Hawes was born on 24 May 1879 in Michigan. He died on 24 May 1948 in Rolla, Phelps County, Missouri and was buried in Macedonia Cemetery, Phelps County, Missouri. Melvin married Sarah Francis Dyo July 2, 1907 in Missouri. Sarah was a half-sister to Elsie Wagonseller, who married Melvin's older brother, Charles Hawes. Melvin and Sarah adopted one child; Ervin, in 1910 in Missouri. According to Elsie (Hawes) McFarland, Melvin's grandniece, Melvin was relatively well-off but very tight with a dollar. She recalls that Melvin bought an entire city block in Rolla, Phelps County, Missouri, built homes on it and then sold them. He built his family a house with a bathroom, but no one was allowed to use it. He also bought good dishes and silverware, but his wife was not allowed to use those either. Sarah Francis had been having stomach pain and her stomach kept getting bigger (probably a tumor) and Melvin didn't take her to the hospital until it was too late and she died soon after. When Sarah Francis was sick, Elsie asked Melvin if she could live with them so she would be able to attend high school in Rolla and she would help Sarah Francis around the house to earn her board. Melvin told her "no." Sarah Francis (Dyo) Hawes died on December 24, 1931. She is buried in Macedonia cemetery. Elsie (Hawes) McFarland also remembers going to St. Louis, Missouri with Melvin to meet a woman he met through the "romance column".

III. Jesse J. Hause was born on 23 June 1808 in Wayne or Ovid Township, Seneca County, New York. He died on 14 November 1888 in Williamston, Ingham County, Michigan. Jesse married Sally Ann Swarthout on February 2, 1827 in Steuben County, New York. They may have been the last Hauses to live on Hause Hill, leaving for Michigan in 1835. Jesse was one of the first settlers in Livingston County, Michigan, arriving there in 1837 with brother Sanford. Census records: Jesse was living in Putnam Township, Livingston County, Michigan in 1870. We learn of their life in the Michigan wilderness through Sally's obituary in the Watkins Express in 1900: "The subject of this sketch was born in 1806 on the farm on the shore of Lake Waneta in Tyrone, now owned by James Ellwood, and died at her home in Putnam, Livingston county, Mich., July 2, 1900. She was the oldest of a family of eight children born to Ralph Swarthout and, Jane Bennett who were about the first young people married in Tyrone.
Her father was among the many who went to the defence of their country in the war with Great Britain in 1812.
Shortly after his return he sold his farm on the lake shore and bought a farm on Hause Hill now owned by Mr. Sprowl, where his daughter grew to womanhood.
In 1827 she was united in marriage to Jepe (sic) J. Hause, with whom she lived three score and two years before death parted them. In early womanhood she experienced religion and united with the Barrington (now Wayne) Baptist church, her husband uniting with the church at the same time and place. Shortly after marriage they settled on a small tract of land (twenty acres) at Rogers' Corners, Hause Hill, where they lived until 1835. That year they sold out and went to the territory of Michigan. June 5, 1836, they moved onto a quarter section in the town of Putnam, Livingston county, Mich., where she lived until her death, a little over sixty-four years. When they settled in their Western home their nearest neighbor was three miles away and the nearest place to get provisions was Detroit, fifty-five miles away, and no roads but Indian trails. Their home was a log cabin surrounded by a dense forest where the red man roamed at will, and the nights were made hideous by the howl of the wolf, the scream of the wildcat and lynx and the screech of the panther. Often in those days did she at night open the door and throw brands of fire out to scare the wild animals away.
Few live to see the great change from territory to state that she has seen, and fewer still have passed through the trials and perils of pioneer life that it has been her lot to bear, and never a murmur known. to pass her lipsa noble woman, ever relying upon God, with strong faith that He forsaketh not those that trust in Him. Ever ready with heart and hand to help transform her forest home into beautiful and fertile fields and the log cabin into a commodious residencea home where all were welcomeshe lived to enjoy the fruits of her labor, and was the mother of six children, five sons and a daughter. All grew to man and womanhood, but two of her children have gone before her, her daughter and one son. She leaves to mourn the loss of a loving and faithful mother four sons, nineteen grand-children, twenty-two great grandchildren, seven great-great grand-children and a host of friends too numerous to number. Her grandfathers, Bennett and Swarthout, were Revolutionary soldiers.
Her father and uncles, Abraham and Justice Bennett, went from Tyrone as soldiers in the war of 1812. Three sons and sixteen nephews were in the war of the rebellion, none that came out alive serving less than three years in the service. Gershom Swarthout, her brother, is the only one now left of her brothers, and her sisters have all gone before her."

From History of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties by John Brown, Jr., Editor for San Bernardino County and James Boyd, Editor for Riverside County with selected biography of actors and witnesses of the period of growth and achievement. Volume III, the Western Historical Association, 1922, The Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago, ILL: "NORMAN S. HAWESThis veteran soldier of the Union has been identified with the citizenship of Riverside more than thirty years, and the business which he founded here is still continued by one of his sons.
Mr. Hawes was born at Reading, Hillsdale County, Michigan, October 28, 1842. His family name was written in the record of births as Hause, and it is said that when he was a boy of about fifteen he proposed to his father that they change the spelling to Hawes, which was done, though his uncles and other members of the family still continue the old spelling.
The record of the Hause family runs back to William Hause, who was born February 24, 1750. He married Martha Wood, who was born May 4, 1753, and died September 8, 1818. Of their fourteen children William Hause, Jr., was born November 22. 1781, and died January 2, 1825. April 7, 1804, he married Esther Sanford, who was born September 22, 1785. They were the parents of ten children. Of these Jesse J. Hause was born June 23, 1808, and married Sally Swarthout, who was born September 2, 1807. Heman C. Hause, a brother of Jesse J. Hause, was the father of the old soldier and Riverside resident. Heman C. Hause was born May 13, 1813, and died August 11, 1872. On November 26, 1832. he married Maria Elvira Bacon, who died May 20, 1852. The second wife of Heman Hause was Adaline L. Holt.
Norman S. Hawes was the fifth in a family of seven children. His brother Edward R. was a Union soldier and died in the service. Another brother, Andrew J., enlisted in the Eleventh Michigan, but was rejected on account of age, and subsequently enlisted in the Seventeenth Michigan Infantry and served until discharged on account of disability. He finally joined Battery D of the First Michigan Light Artillery, and was in service until the close of the war.
Norman S. Hawes received his education in the schools of Litchfield, Michigan, and the country schools of Branch County, and Was identified with the work of his father's farm until he joined the army in September. 1861. His military service is compiled from the official account drawn up by the Soldiers and Sailors Historical and Benevolent Society. He was a member of the famous First Regiment. Michigan Light Artillery Battery D, under command of Capt. Josiah W. Church and known as Church's Battery. Norman Hawes enlisted September 17, 1861. from Branch County to serve three years. He was mustered in at White Pigeon, Michigan, September 17th as a private in Battery D, commanded successively by Capt. William W. Andrews, Capt. Alonza F. Bidwell and Capt. Josiah W. Church. This battery was organized in White Pigeon and mustered in September 17th and attached to the Fourteenth Army Corps. It was on duty at Camp Robinson and Louisville, Kentucky, until January, 1862, and then went by l)oat down the Ohio and up the Cumberland to Spring Hill, south of Nashville, Tennessee. Mr. Hawes was taken ill and sent home on a discharged furlough, but rejoined his battery after the battle of Stone River in the concluding days of the year 1862. The battery was then ordered to Triune, where it remained several months, until the advance of Rosecrans on Chattanooga. The first engagement on his return was at Hoover's Gap and then at Winchester, Tennessee, where the raiment remained a few weeks. Then crossing the Tennessee River at Stevenson, Alabama, it advanced over Lookout Mountain down into the Chickamauga Valley. In September 1863, the battery was assigned to the First Brigade, Third Division. It reached Growers Ford on the Chickamauga September 18th and participated in the great battle of that name on the following day, rendering conspicuous service, no battery in that memorable battle being handled more skillfully or doing greater execution. The battery occupied Fort N^ley at Chattanooga. In November following the battery assisted in shelling the enemy on Lookout Mountain when General Hooker was advancing across the face of the mountain, and also participated in the assault on Missionary Ridge November 25th. From March until December, following the battery was at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and then was sent back to Nashville, Tennessee, where they remained in camp during the winter. The following spring they marched to Murfreesboro and occupied Fort Rosecrans during the remainder of the war.
Norman S. Hawes was in all the engagements of his battery excepting the time he was in the hospital and at home and was always at his post of duty and achieved a gallant record for meritorious service and soldierly conduct. He left the battery at Columbia, Tennessee, and was in the hospital, later at Nashville, and was furloughed home and after recovering reported at Detroit and rejoined the battery at Murfreesboro. At Louisville, while in drill, he was injured when a team fell on him, causing injury to neck and spine which has ever since affected him. For a time he was a nurse in the smallpox hospital at Louisville. His certificate of honorable discharge was dated at Nashville, September 17, 1864.
After leaving the army Mr. Hawes returned to Butler. Michigan, and helped his uncle complete a school building. A teacher being needed for the school, he took the examination and, passing the highest marks of all the applicants, was given the school and at the end of the year was complimented by the board for having the most orderly and best attended school in the district. Following that he took a high school teacher's course at Coldwater, and following that was given a school in Quincy Township of Branch County. His pupils stood high in the usual branches and he was especially commended for his classes in singing and debating. He taught another term at Butler and then went on the road as a salesman selling sewing machines, and had a store at Hillsdale, Michigan. Later he went on the road for the firm of Whitney & Currier of Toledo, Ohio, selling organs and pianos. That was his business for fifteen years, and in 1888 Mr. Hawes came to Riverside and opened an establishment of his own in the Tetley Hotel Block, selling pianos and other musical instruments, sewing machines and bicycles. He prospered, and with increasing business moved his quarters to the Frederick Block, and continued there until he retired, since which time the business has been conducted by his son, H. W. Hawes.

1. William Hause Avery was born on 19 Nov 1837 in Hillsdale, Hillsdale County, Michigan; He fought during the Civil War with Co. D, 18th Michigan Infantry; Residence at enlistment: Allen, Michigan; Enlisted as a Private on 31 July 1862 at the age of 25; He received a disability discharge on 21 March 1864 at Camp Nelson, Kentucky. William died on 28 Apr 1923 in Sawtelle, Los Angeles County, California. Biography in History of Butler County, Kansas, by Vol. P. Mooney, 1916, Pages 404-406: "William H. Avery, justice of the peace of El Dorado, is a Civil war veteran and a Butler county pioneer. Mr. Avery was born in Hillsdale, Mich., November, 19, 1837, and is a son of Horace B. and Mary (Hause) Avery, the former a native of Steuben County, New York and of New England stock, and the latter of Pennsylvania, and a descendant of Pennsylvania Dutch. The Avery family came from Vermont to New York State and Ebenezer Avery, grandfather of William H., was the founder of the family in New York. Horace B. Avery, and his wife, the parents of William H., removed from Steuben County, New York, to Michigan and spent most of their lives in Branch and Hillsdale Counties, that State. H. B. Avery died at Pontiac, Ill., and the mother died at Hillsdale, Mich., in 1857.
William Hause Avery, his wife Maria Anne Hall and their granddaughters whom they raised, Myrtle Elizabeth (front) and Anne Marie Avery (rear). Taken in El Dorado, KS in about 1902.
"William H. Avery is one of seven children born to his parents, as follows: William H., the subject of this sketch; C. F., a Civil war veteran who served in Company B, Eleventh regiment, Michigan infantry, and now resides at Pontiac, Ill.; D. S. was also a Civil war veteran and served in the same company as O. F. and was wounded at the battle of Chickamauga, now living at Pontiac, Ill.; D. C. also served in the same company and regiment, was captured, and confined in Libby prison, contracting rheumatism from exposure, from which he never recovered and is now deceased; Mrs. Emily V. Swartout, a widow, residing at Bancroft, Mich.; Mrs. Anne Jeanette Austin, a widow, residing at El Dorado, Kans., and Mrs. Ella Withington, a widow residing at Detroit, Mich.
"Mr. Avery was reared to manhood in Hillsdale County, Michigan, and attended the public school. He was brought up on a farm and thus became familiar with that line of work, and in early life learned the stonemason's trade, and worked at that occupation until July 31, 1862, when he enlisted at Hillsdale, Mich., in Company D, Eighteenth regiment, Michigan Infantry. His regiment served with the army of the Cumberland, and after participating in a number of skirmishes, they took part in the battle of Nashville. Mr. Avery was thrown from his horse and his spine so severely injured that later he was placed in the invalid corps and detailed to duty in the quartermaster's department and served until after the close of the war, receiving his honorable discharge in July, 1865.
"Mr. Avery was married February 21, 1860, to Miss Mariah A. Hall, a native of New York who was reared and educated in Michigan. Mr. and Mrs. Avery passed their golden wedding anniversary six years ago and bear the distinction of having been married longer than any other couple in Butler County. To Mr. and Mrs. Avery were born two children, Ulysses Sherman and Hattie L., the latter dying at the age of sixteen years. Ulysses Sherman married Maggie Dean, a Butler County girl, now deceased. Two children were born to Ulysses Sherman Avery and wife: Anne M., who was educated in private school and is a graduate of El Dorado High School, now serving her second term as clerk of the District Court of Butler County, and Elizabeth, a student in the El Dorado High School. The mother of these girls died when the younger was about a year old, and the children were reared and educated by their grandparents and they seem more like the children of Mr. and Mrs. Avery than their grandchildren.
"William H. Avery is a Kansas pioneer in the fullest sense of the term. He came to this State, or rather territory, in i860, and at that time there was not a mile of railroad in the territory of Kansas. Mr. Avery came as far as St. Joseph, Mo., by rail, having started originally for Pikes Peak, but about the time he reached St. Joseph he heard discouraging news from the Pikes Peak boom and he drifted as far west as where Emporia now stands, the town at that time consisting of three houses, one of which belonged to Preston Plumb who later became United States Senator from Kansas. Mr. Avery went as far west as Little River on a buffalo hunt and has seen the plains when buffalo could be seen as far as the vision reached. In i860 he killed seven buffalo on one trip, and when Mr. Avery first came to Kansas deer could be seen here by the thousands. After remaining here during the summer and fall of i860, he returned to Michigan where he remained until he enlisted in the army, as above stated, and in 1865, after receiving his discharge, he returned to Kansas and located in Clifford Township, Butler County, and was a pioneer of that section of Butler County. He built the first stone school house in Butler County, which was in District No. 21, Clifford Township, and was built in 1872 and is still standing. He built a number of stone dwellings in the early days. Further interesting historical information in reference to Mr. Avery's career in Clifford Township will be found in the chapter containing the history of that township. When Mr. Avery settled in Clifford Township his nearest neighbor was three miles distant and he experienced all the trials and vicissitudes of pioneer life in Butler County. He remained on his Clifford Township homestead until 1887, when he removed to El Dorado. Here he bought out a marble works and conducted that business for two years.
"In 1890 Mr. Avery was admitted to practice as a pension attorney in the Department of the Interior at Washington, D. C, and since that time has conducted an extensive practice in that specialty of the law. He has been a notary public for a number of years and for twenty-four years has been a justice of the peace in El Dorado, and he has also been a police judge for six years. Mr. Avery is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, Lew Wallace Post No. 66*, and is past commander of the local order here. He was made a Mason at Lexington, Ky., fifty-two years ago, and for fifteen years has been secretary of the local lodge. He is a Republican and takes an active part in local politics and served as chairman of the Republican county central committee for six years." He is buried at Belle Vista Cemetery, El Dorado.

In 1901, her mother died from a heart ailment while living at the home of her in-laws in El Dorado. Anne's Grandparents, William H. and Maria Avery, raised both Anne and her sister, Myrtle Elizabeth in El Dorado, KS.
On May 17, 1917 she married a divorcee, Dr. Lewis David Johnson, in Kansas City, Missouri. The couple later moved to Chanute, KS where he was a surgeon in the hospital he had founded there. They had two daughters but divorced in 1931. She was there at her daughter, Betty Jane [Johnson] Chain's bedside when she died at age 22 from pneumonia. After her divorce she moved to Lawrence, Kansas and lived there until about 1950 when she moved, briefly to Wichita, Kansas and then later to Overland Park, KS where she lived with her daughter, Anne Marie and died in 1965 after an extended illness.
She enjoyed bridge and was very active socially in Lawrence, Kansas. She never remarried and kept her married name after divorcing Dr. Johnson, frequently using the name "Mrs. Avery Johnson."

1. Parker Halsey Hawes was born on 28 Nov 1857 in Hector, Schuyler Co., New York. "Clerk of Schuyler County, (he) was born in the town of Hector, this county, November 28, 1857, being the son of Joshua and Elizabeth (Halsey) Hawes. He represents the third generation of the family that has resided in this locality, his grandfather, Jonas Hawes, having removed hither in an early day and made settlement in the town of Hector, where he resided for a number of years, or until his death. The father of our subject was born in Schuyler County, this state, on his father's farm in Hector. He became a member of the firm of Squires, Wilcox and Co., who were engaged in merchandising at North Hector. In 1875 he went to Michigan on a business trip, and died there.* His wife, who still survives him, is a resident of Watkins. While he never became very wealthy, yet he was well-to-do, having through his excellent management and industry accumulated a competency, which enabled him to surround his family with every comfort and give his only child, our subject, an excellent education. In the town of Hector, upon the old homestead of his grandfather, Halsey passed the days of childhood and youth. After spending some years in the public schools he entered Cook's Academy, where his education was completed. On leaving school he came to Watkins and secured a position as clerk for Charles S. Frost, with whom he remained for five years. In 1883 he entered the employ of Durland, Smith and Co., dealers in hardware, with whom he remained in the capacity of bookkeeper until January 1, 1894. In 1893 he was elected to the office of County Clerk, the duties of which he assumed January 1, 1894, for a term of three years. As an official, he is prompt, energetic, faithful and efficient, and the manner in which he is discharging the duties of his office is winning him the approbation of the people of the county. He is a staunch Republican, and never loses an opportunity to advance the interests of his party. On New Year's Day of 1880 Mr. Hawes was united in marriage with Miss Jennie Macrury, daughter of John Macrury, a prosperous farmer of Schuyler County. They are the parents of three children, namely: Edna E., Chester A. and Margaret I. Socially Mr. Hawes is connected with Jefferson Lodge No. 332, F. & A. M.; Watkins Chapter No. 182, R. A. M.; and St. Omar's Commandery No. 19, K. T., of Elmira. With his wife he holds membership in St. James' Episcopal Church, in which he is a Vestryman. He is a man who possesses in a marked degree the confidence and respect of the people of the village and county, for his course in life has ever been upright and honorable." Portrait and biographical record of Seneca and Schuyler counties, New York: New York, Chapman publishing co., 1895, p.174, 175. Parker and Jennie E Macrury (b. 1861) had the following children:

*FOOTNOTE: The story told by Parker Hawes in his autobiography is incorrect. Joshua Hause did not die on a business trip to Michigan. He actually moved to Dane, Wisconsin, and worked as a tavern keeper. On 20 Apr 1869 he married (2) Cordelia C who was 14 years younger than him. Joshua died in 1875 in Madison, Dane, Wisconsin leaving a wife and child in New York... a wife in Wisconsin... and a hell of a probate battle! Neither wife ultimately received anything from his estate, which was sold off to pay Joshua's debts.

Alvin served the Union cause politically in the Civil War by representing Schuyler County in the New York State Assembly in 1862: "MR Hause has proven himself one of the most useful and reliable men that Schuyler county has sent to the Legislature since its formation as a county. He is descended from a long line of English ancestry on his paternal side, and has inherited just enough of German blood on his maternal side, to make him one of the most quiet and substantial men in the House. He is a native of the town of Wayne, Steuben county, N. Y., where he was born on the 15th of December, 1814, and like most men reared in a new country has lived the life of a frugal, industrious and successful man. His father, Joseph Hause, who was a native of Orange county, died in 1838, at the age of fifty-one, and his mother, who was a Miss Rogers from Putnam county, died in 1847, at the age of sixty-three. Mr. Hause received a common school education, and was bred a farmer, which has always been his chief occupation. He held the office of Supervisor in 1852, before the organistion of Schuyler county, and has occupied the same position, during the past two years, in the town where he resides. Unlike most public men he has never sought office, and has never met with any opposition when once a candidate. He has always been a firm and unyielding Democrat of the Douglas school, and was chosen to his present position by a combination of the friends of the Union belonging to all parties. Mr. Hause was married on the 28th of October, 1841, to Miss Perces F. Noble, who is a native of Enfield, Conn. He is a member of the Baptist Church, and is a gentleman of high standing in the community where he resides."

He died on 4 Jun 1900 in Pontiac, Livingston, Illinois. Obituary: Dundee Observer, 10 January 1900: "Last Sunday morning on the 10:27 train from the North, the remains of Charles Hause arrived in this village to be laid at rest in Hillside Cemetery beside his departed wife and son. Mr. Hause, who was born in Tyrone on February 27, 1817, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George Beach at Pontiac, Ill Thursday, January 4, 1900. The funeral services were held at the home of his daughter, who, with her husband, accompanied the remains to this village. There were also present at the burial service Miss Wolverton, of Elmira, Thomas P. Hause, of Farmer, and Miss Alice Kernan, of Whitesboro, N.Y., all relatives of the deceased, together with a large number of friends from this section. Rev. D. E. Sprague officiated at the grave, the ceremony taking place about 1 p.m. Mr. Hause was well known to many residents of this section as a prosperous farmer, who left here about 1870. After leaving Dundee he settled in the west, where he bought large tracts of land near Minneapolis, Minn. Later he spent much time in travel. He had twice visited Europe, and also made a tour of the Holy Land. He visited Alaska, Cuba, and nearly all of the important sections of the United States. During his travels he wrote descriptive letters for the Farmer Review, of which his nephew T.P. Hause is editor. Many of these letters were copied by the Observer, as will be remembered by our readers. Mr. Hause frequently visited Dundee and greatly enjoyed greeting his early neighbors and friends. He was a good conversationalist, a deep thinker, and possessed a keen vein of humor, which made his visits both pleasant and profitable. Besides the daughter, one son, Lodiwick, residing at Minneapolis, and one sister, Mrs. Betsey Wolverton, of Elmira, survive.

He had joined the 130th New York Volunteer Infantry in 1862 and spent the next three years fighting secessionists in Virginia. On 5 August 1862, after a call from President Lincoln for more men to fight, the twenty-four year old enlisted in the 130th New York Volunteer Infantry. The regiment was later converted to a cavalry unit known as the 1st New York Dragoons. The Dragoons were one of the 300 Union regiments that suffered the greatest casualties during the War. George was at Appomattox Court House on 9 April 1865 when Lee surrendered.

He was commissioned in Company S, 28th Infantry Regiment Wisconsin and received a disability discharge on 18 Nov 1863. Lewis is the author of the genealogical sketches that are the basis of the John Hause legend. He died in January 1870 in Walworth County, Wisconsin. He and Fanny had the following children:
1. Cecil Stewart Hause (Hawes) was born on 29 August 1848 in Whitewater, Walworth County, Wisconsin. He died on 13 March 1925 in East Nelson, Moultrie, Illinois.

i. Robert William Galloway, Sr. was born on 28 Apr 1919 in Racine, Wisconsin. His biological mother, Mildred Hawes, apparently had him with a man named William Andrew Schmitt (1897-1969), but then placed him for adoption. However, Mildred's mother Belle Olsen-Hawes and her second husband John Galloway (1899-1921), adopted him and re-named him Robert William Galloway. After their deaths he was raised by his biological mother, Mildred, and her husband William Rowley (according to the 1930 and 1940 census). Robert worked much of his way through school washing dishes, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1941. He majored in physics and engineering. Upon graduation, Robert went to work for Western Electric until his retirement in 1981. His initial work was to build or design bombs for the WWII war effort. He married Bette Mae Macemon (1920-2004) on 27 Dec 1943 and initially moved to an apartment outside Chicago. By 1944, they had saved enough money to purchase their first home for $9000 at 510 S Grace St, Lombard, Ill. They had two children, Cheryl (b. 1945) and Robert Jr. Robert Sr. died on 23 Jan 2007 in Palm Coast, Flagler, Florida.

VII. Joseph Hause was born on 24 Mar 1821 in Steuben, New York. On 18 Nov 1856 he married Nancy B. Purdy (1832-1872). He was a teacher and insurance salesman. He died on the 18th of May in 1864, in Ovid, Seneca, New York. Joseph Jr. was followed eight years later by Nancy, on November 6, 1872. They had the following children:
1. Alfred B. Hause in 1858 in Seneca, New York, and died in 1916 in Ovid, Seneca, New York. In 1891, he married Susan A Seeley (1857-1901). Alfred co-owned the Hause and Purdy Insurance Agency in Ovid, Seneca County, but spent a great deal of time unearthing his genealogy. Part of the reason he did this may have been that he wanted to learn more about his father and mother, who had passed away while he was young. Then Alfred, Thomas and their younger brother, William (3 Nov 1862 - 2 Mar 1915), were raised by their maternal grandparents, the Purdys. Alfred began his research with a family history written in 1850 by his uncle, Lewis K. Hause (born 6 Aug 1818), as well as the family bible of Albert's grandfather Joseph Hause, Sr., that Thomas apparently hadn't known about. (Both of these sources are now lost, as well.) Then Alfred and distant cousins named James Dwight Hause (a descendant of Joseph Sr.'s brother, William Hause, Jr., and the son in "J.B. HAUSE & SON FURNITURE AND UNDERTAKING") and Dr. James P Hawes (1839-1915) teamed up to trace the Hause family all the way back to Johannes Hauss, correctly deducing that his origins were from Germany, and also uncovered some interesting stories about William E. Hause. A letter detailing their research is at right. Alfred is rumored to have written the entire genealogy in book form, which was published by his brother Thomas, a newspaper owner, but no copies can be found today, although he did publish one on the Purdy family (Hause, Alfred B: Purdy Family, bound manuscript; The New York genealogical and biographical record, Volume 40 Volumes 451-455 of American periodical series, 1850-1900 Author New York Genealogical and Biographical Society Publisher New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 1909).

2. Thomas Purdy Hause was born on 29 Feb 1860 in Seneca, New York. On 6 Apr 1881, he married Jessie E Frantz (1863-1936) in Ovid, Seneca Co. On July 23, 1887, 27-year-old Thomas, a printer for the Ovid Gazette, struck out on his own and published the very first copy of the Interlaken (formerly Farmer) weekly newspaperoriginally called the Saturday Morning Review. In 1892, after a successful 15 years, Hause redubbed the newspaper the Farmer Review, named for the village of Farmer. In 1904, the village of Farmer itself was renamed Interlaken. Hause again responded, replacing the Farmer Review masthead soon after with the Interlaken Review. It's been in continuous publication ever since. Thomas also served as mayor of Interlaken from 1909 to 1911, was president of the local school board in 1897, worked as second assistant foreman in the local fire departmentCataract Engine and Hose Company No. 1, and was master of the Farmerville Lodge No. 183 in 1901. He died on 24 Jan 1929. "THOMAS P. HAUSE is the proprietor and publisher of the Farmer Review, having founded it and begun its publication in the month of July, 1887, at a time when no paper had been published in the town for several years. It is an eight-column folio, local and independent, devoted to the interests of Farmer, and has appeared every week since its first publication. It has grown to considerable prominence, and has an appreciative and valuable patronage. Mr. Hause was born in Ovid February 29, 1860, the son of Joseph and Nancy (Purdy) Hause, who were also natives of New York. Joseph Hause settled in Seneca County before his marriage, and taught school. The grandfather, also Joseph Hause, was one of the pioneers of Seneca County, and helped to clear up the virgin forests around Farmer. He and an Irishman (ex-Senator Francis Kernan's father) went across Seneca Lake and settled at Tyrone, to which point they presently removed their families. The Hause family trace their ancestry back to William Hause, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1750. After the marriage of the parents in 1856, they resided in Ovid. The father died in May, 1864, and the mother in 1872. They had three children, all sons: Alfred B., Thomas P. and William J. Our subject was born in Ovid, received his education in the village schools, and learned the printer's trade in the office of the Ovid Independent. In 1887 he came to Farmer. Previous to this, in 1881, he was married to Jessie E., the daughter of D. F. Frantz, and they have two children, Nancy E. and Frank E. In politics Mr. Hause is independent, voting for the best men and measures, irrespective of party interests, and by strictly carrying out this principle he has made himself a power. The proportions of his office and the increase of his establishment show how much the people appreciate a candid and honorable newspaper. He began business with a Washington Hand-press, and with but little material on hand, and now has a steam outfit, with a Campbell Country Press, and one of the most complete country job offices found west of New York. He is sole owner of both the plant and the building. Mr. Hause is found among the members of Farmersville Lodge No. 183, F. and A. M., and Seneca Lodge No. 694, I. O. O. F."

XII. William Henry Hause (1829-1878). His obituary in the Watkins Express: DEATH OF WILLIAM HAUSE.Our citizens were startled on Tuesday morning last, Sept. 4th, by the report that William Hanse was no more. He bad been sick but a few days and no one supposed, not even his family and physician, that his disease was dangerous or likely to prove fatal. He retained his physical strength to the last moment, and only a few minutes before his death, Tuesday morning, raised himself up in bed and placed his feet upon the floor. It is needless to say that the announcement of his decease caused unfeigned sorrow and mourning in our village.
Like all other men he had his faults, but his good qualities and his generous and sympathetic heart overshadowed all human frailties and made him a valued and useful citizen and neighbor. He was not blessed with a large share of this world's goods, but his heart was ever open to the calls of tbe poor and distressed, and many are the incidents that we could name of his noble sacrifices in behalf of the needy, and generous but unostentatious aid extended to the destitute. He was peculiarly fond of little children, and never tired of caressing and encouraging them and doing such kind offices for them as would make their little hearts glad. The children of Watkins will long remember the name of William Hause and revere his memory.
The deceased was born in tbe town of Tyrone, Feb. 28th, 1829, and had therefore reached his 49th year. A few years of his early life was spent in the West teaching school. He afterwards became a resident of Dundee, Yates county, where he held a clerkship in a dry goods store for several years.
In 1853 he married Maria Kinney, a daughter of Judge Henry Kinney, of Dundee. Subsequently he became a resident ot tbe town of Barrington, Yates county, where be spent nine years of his life upon a farm. He held the office of Justice of the Peace in Barrington eight years and was twice elected Justice of Sessions in Yates county. He afterwards returned to Dundee for a short period, and in 1867 removed with his family to Watkins, where he spent the remainder of his life. He held the office of Justice of the Peace in this town for nearly eight years; his second term would have expired on the first day of January next. He was also twice elected Justice of Sessions in this county, and in all his official career maintained an excellent reputation for tbe fairness of his legal decisions, and for his upright and dignified course in all matters of controversy submitted to him for examination or trial.
The funeral services will take place today, Thursday, at the Methodist Church in Dundee. Rev. Cameron Mann, rector of St. James's church, of this village, will officiate.
His remains will be buried in the Dundee cemetery by his Masonic brethren of Dundee Lodge, assisted by many of the fraternity from this county. Mr. John J. Smith of this village will conduct the Masonic services. Deceased leaves a wife and one son, Henry K. Hause, Esq., of the law firm of Evarts & Hause. The bereaved family have the sympathy of a wide circle of sorrowing friends and neighbors.

Madison, Dane County and surrounding towns ; being a history and guide to places of scenic beauty and historical note ... early intercourse of the settlers with the indians ... with a complete list of county supervisors and officers, and legislative members, by W. J. Park & Co., 1877. From the chapter, 'Verona,' pp. 571-588, by MacDonald, Donald; Hawes, J. T.; Page 586: ADDITIONS BY J.T. HAWES: "My father and mother and three children moved into the town of Verona on the 7th day of March, 1843. It was a very cold day, with deep snow, which lay on the ground until April, when men went to the town, meeting in sleighs. It was a remarkably long and hard winter, and many cattle starved to death. I well remember instances of men coming fifteen miles to get a load of straw, when we would give them the load and keep them over night. We had moved on to Mr. Samuel Taylor's farm, so had plenty of feed. At this time there was only one other family in the town, Peter Martin's, one mile from us. The next nearest was Joseph Vroman, five miles east, Ed. Campbell seven miles north, and McFadden, seven miles south. We living (sic) on the road from Janesvilleto Mineral Point, and as it was the only house for a long distance each way, having a good barn, something very scarce in those days, it was a regular stopping place for all travelers. Among the notables who used to frequent our house was Judge Irvin, Hons. Moses M. and Marshal M. Strong, Ebenezrt Brigham, of Blue Mounds, George Delaplaine, etc. J.G. Knapp and E.M.Williamson, of Madison, used to make it their home while acting as surveyors in that part of the county. Judge Irvin was always accompanied by his famous horse Pedro, and dog York. My father one winter boarded old Pedro for the judge. If my memory serves me right, the first child born in the town was Ebenezer Collins. He was born in the evening. My mother was present, and early the next morning she was called to attend the birth of Olive Wheeler, a daughter of William A. Wheeler, who lived at Badger Mills. The first religious services in town were held at our house, by the Rev. Salmon Stebbins. He was followed soon after by a Methodist missionary by the name of Bennett, who afterwards took up the less honorable calling of office seeking. About this time we had occasional by the Rev. Matthew Fox, of Fitchburg, a Presbyterian minister; also by his father, who was a Methodist preacher. He was known all over the county as Father Fox, or, as he sometimes styled himself in his jocular way, 'Ould Daddy Fox.' In the summer of 1845 the settlers built a log school house on the northwest quarter of section 22, but when they got the body up, they decided it was not located in the proper place, and so sold it to my father, who took it down and moved it on his farm, on section 13, which he was just beginning to open. The next year they erected a log school house on the west edge of what is now known as the Dane county poor farm. The first school was taught by Amy Thornton, in the winter of 1846-47, and I was one of her scholars. It was the custom in those days for the teacher to board around, and the big boys to take turns in building the fires. My turn came every Monday morning, and I remember getting a frozen ear on one of those occasions. The first summer school was taught by Miss Noyes, and the second winter term by Dr. Waterbury. He being the only physician in that part of the country, was frequently called away on professional duties, and at such times he placed the school in charge of some one of the big boys, quite a number of whom were grown men. One of the number, an Englishman by the name of Baker, who was sometimes called upon to preside, caused a good deal of merriment one day by telling some one in a class of spelling, who had left out the letter 'n' in a word, that 'there was a 'hen' in there somewheres.' In 1843 my father was elected the first justice of the peace in the town, and my brother, Harvey L. Hawes, the first constable. The same year my father was elected a supervisor of the town. Among his duties were the laying out and repairing of roads. This office he held for many years. In 1846 we moved on our own farm, and entertained travelers in our little log house. A sign over our door with the word BEER in large letters, caused considerable attraction, as it was, for many miles around, the only thing of the kind outside of Madison. As the town has filled up fast with settlers, it will be difficult to follow its history further." Matthew married (1) Johanna Wood (1794-1831) and they had the following children:
VI. Sherman M Hawes was born in 1822 in New York. In 1848, he married Hannah Belle Cox (1829-1911) Dane, Dane, Wisconsin. He died on 19 Mar 1853 in Dane County, Wisconsin.
1. Ellen Olivia Hawes was born on 1 Aug 1848 in Sauk City, Sauk, Wisconsin. She married Joseph Dawson. She died on 28 Dec 1922 in Pleasantville, Marion, Iowa. Their children:
2. George F Hawes was born 27 Mar 1852 in Wisconsin. He died on 23 Oct 1922 in Maple Grove, Hennepin, Minnesota.
3. Sherman Eugene Hawes was born on 26 Apr 1853 in Sauk City, Sauk, Wisconsin. She died on 2 Sep 1924 in Jasper, Rock, Minnesota.
VIII. Catherine Hawes was born on 11 Jun 1824 in New York. On 23 Apr 1846, she married Russell Deming Lay (1824-1865) in Kinderhook, Columbia, New York. She died in 1867 in Keeler, Van Buren, Michigan. Her children:

Mr. Hawes married Miss Eliza Fargo, a native of Pennsylvania; they have six children, all living in the State of Wisconsin. Mr. Hawes has a beautiful farm of 130 acres, well adapted to stock and grain, nine miles from the capital, and four miles south of Middleton, valued at $5,000. Mr. H. was one of the first who started for the gold-fields of California, going in 1849, and remained there one year and a half, following mining ; he is turning his attention at present to the raising of short horns, and going some into tobacco-raising. In politics he is a Republican."
XIII. Jasper Townley Hawes was born on 17 Jun 1834 in Pennsylvania. From History of Dane County, Wisconsin ... preceded by a history of Wisconsin, statistics of the state, and an abstract of its laws and constitution and of the Constitution of the United States by Butterfield, Consul Willshire, 1824-1899; Published by the Western Historical Co., Chicago, 1880; P. 1255: "J. T. HAWES, Sec, 18; P. 0. Madison; born June 17, 1834, in Erie Co., Penn. ; his parents, Matthew and Anna M. (Miles) Hawes, came West in 1842, reaching Madison with a team Dec. 24, 1842; while here, J. T. attended school under tuition of Theodore Conkey; afterward a Union Captain and member of the Legislature ; he also attended the first Sabbath school, taught by the Rev. Mines, in the old capitol. The family settled in Verona in March, 1843, the second family in that town, and in their house the first religious service was held by the Rev. Stebbins in the summer of 1843. J. T. attended school in the first schoolhouse, built in 1846, near what is now the poor farm ; his father also kept open house for the traveling public ; in 1849 and 1850, he kept the old National Hotel, on the site of the present Vilas House. In 1856, J. T. Hawes married Mary J. Williams, of Oneida Co., N. Y. ; she was born Sept. 27, 1834; her father, B. W., was a lineal descendant of Roger Williams, founder, of Rhode Island ; and her mother, Abigail Sheldon, a native of New York. Since 1856, Mr. Hawes has lived on his present 130-acre farm; has four living children— Estelle A. (Mrs F. A. Matts), Edith A., Mary L. and Fred W. ; and lost an infant daughter, Charlotte E., died in 1872. Matthew Hawes died May 4, 1873 ; he was a Democrat ; and was elected Justice of the Peace and Supervisor on the first town ticket in Verona ; was later Town Treasurer and one of the Commissioners to lay out the Madison and Wiota road ; his son, our subject, has made his own farm and home ; he is likewise a Democrat and has been Justice of the Peace eight years ; he served seven and a half months of the year 1865, in Co. G, 49th W. V. I. ; was honorably discharged on account of disability, and still suffers much from partial loss of speech and eye-sight ; has made application and will doubtless receive a pension." During the Civil War, he served in the 49th Regiment, Wisconsin Infantry Company as a Private, enlisting on 13 Feb 1865. He received a disability discharge on 30 Sep 1865. Jasper died on 7 Jul 1911 in Ventura, Ventura, California. In 1969, the City of Ventura, California abandoned its two city-owned pioneer cemeteries: St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery, founded in 1862, and the adjacent Ventura Protestant Cemetery, founded in 1889. These two cemeteries located at main and Poli Streets in Ventura, were converted to a public park. The remains over 3,000 of the city's pioneer residents are still buried on the property, but the headstones and monuments were disposed of in a landfill in the nearby Santa Clara River. Research by Edson T. Strobridge, Civil War research historian in San Luis Obispo, CA. has so far identified fifty-five Civil War veterans originally buried in these historic burial grounds. There still remain the graves of forty seven veterans of the Civil War including many of their wives and children, in what has become known as Cemetery Memorial Park. Among the more than 3,000 graves remaining is one of a Civil War General and former member of Congress, another, a Confederate Colonel and many others who served their country in time of war. They include seven members of the original 99 men who enrolled in Company C, 1st Battalion, Native California Cavalry originally enrolled in Santa Barbara in April 1864 (when Ventura Co. was still a part) and made up entirely of native Californians, who represented California in the Union Army during the Civil War. This research is ongoing and not yet complete and does not include the names of veterans of other wars, one Medal of Honor winner won during the Indian Wars in 1869. As more information develops and confirmed Mr. Strobridge plans to share it with Mr. Steven Shleder to aid in his mission to gain support in "Restoring St. Mary's Cemetery." "The refusal to restore this and all of the 600+ desecrated headstones to their proper grave locations makes each City Council person, since, culpable for this 3,000 pioneer grave desecration." He adds, "It is not a memorial dog park, it was declared a cemetery of our forefathers by state and federal law." Jasper married Mary Jane Williams (b. 1834) and they had the following children:
Jasper Hawes's headstone was discarded in the 1960's by the Ventura City Council to make way for a dog park, but the stone was stored away by a concerned citizen. There is no current memorial for Jaspar T. Hawes, and his line has ended (at least, no one could be located). However, Sharon Troll, a volunteer trying to reclaim the park, contacted this author and we have requested that Memorial Program Services (41B) in the Department of Veteran's Affairs re-install a flat bronze marker with raised letters in Jasper's name and a Union Civil War emblem. His name will also be on an information area memorial at the site.
- Samuel HAUSE was born on 12 May 1794 in Warwick, Orange County, New York, and married Catherine Howard (1801-1852). According to land records, Samuel purchased property in Ripley, Chautauqua County, New York in 1828, and was living next to a younger brother, Morris Fant Hause. Eventually he and Morris both would move to Wisconson. Samuel and Catherine had the following children:
I. Silas Hawes was born in 1824 in New York, according to later census and travel documents (the 1825 New York State Census shows Samuel living with a woman and 2 male children. We presume Silas to be one of the boys, but we do not know the name of the other son). Silas emigrated to Argentina and married Matilda Sarmiento (b. 1833) there in January 1856, with the license listing his parents as Samuel Hawes and Caderine [sic] Howard. It has been passed down that Matilda Sarmiento is the niece of Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, who was president of Argentina from 1868-1874 (they are from the same provincial town of Argentina: San Juan). They had the following children:
1. Samuel Gregorio Hawes was born in Mar 1857 in San Juan, San Juan, Argentina. He died before 1869 in San Juan, San Juan, Argentina. as he is not on any travel documents or Argentinian archives.
2. Fayetta C. Hawes was born and baptized in 1858 in Argentina, South America. No further information.

According to the Los Angeles Times, on 18 Feb 1915, Thu, Page 12, Stella'a divorce decree could not be granted because while Carlos had been caught in a hotel room drinking with another woman, it had been a set-up by a private detective using his own wife, a "stool pigeon." Eventually the divorce was granted. Carlos married again, on 21 Jan 1919 in Los Angeles, to (2) Helen Nancy Smith (1898-1988).

9. Milo Hawes was born in 1865 in San Juan, San Juan, Argentina. After moving with his family to Wisconsin, he moved to Denver, CO, then settled near San Francisco CA. He was murdered by an unknown person, his skull crushed by a large rock and dragged into the bushes on 9 Jun 1889 in Yolo, California. The Sacramento Daily Union, Volume 61, Number 92, 11 June 1889, reported on page one, "The verdict of the jury was that Milo Hawes came to his death at the hands of a party or parties to the jurors unknownand here rests, at least for the present, the case of one of the most brutal and cowardly murders which ever disgraced the State of California." Milo's brother-in-law, Anthony R. Hernandez, traveled up from Los Angeles and buried Milo at the Sacramento City Cemetery in Sacramento, Sacramento County, California, Plot: 6-89.
10. Luvina del Carmen Hawes was born about 1868 in San Juan, San Juan, Argentina. She moved with her family to Verona, Dane, Wisconsin, USA. She married David S Murray (Mar 1867 - 22 Oct 1907) of Canada on 16 Apr 1900 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and they moved to San Francisco, CA. She died on 24 Aug 1913 in Oakland, Alameda, California while living with her sister, Josephine Hawes-Allen.
11. Thomas Hawes was born in Feb 1870 in Wisconsin. He died in a shooting accident at the age of nine in Oct 1879 in Denver, Arapahoe, Colorado.
12. Josephine "Jossie" Ellen Hawes was born on 12 Sep 1873 in Verona, Dane, Wisconsin. On 5 Jul 1917 she married David Allen (b. 1860) of Canada, in Alameda, California. They moved from the San Francisco area to Los Angeles sometime between 1930 and 1935. She died on 10 Sep 1950 in Los Angeles, California.
Immigration documents from 1869 show the Silas traveled back to the U.S.A. from Argentina with his family. The 1870 United States Federal Census shows that Silas is living on what had been the Samuel Hawes farm. In the 1880 Federal Census the family had moved out of state. The address of this Census is 509 Curtis Street in Denver, Arapahoe, Colorado. Although Silas is not listed, Matilda lists herself as married. Silas disappears from the record. Matilda lived with her children until her death on Los Angeles, CA, before 1893. Despite having so many children, only one of Silas' sons had a son to carry the Hawes name, and he died without children. Of Silas' daughters, only three had children. So this family remained unconnected to the Samuel Hawes line until family historian Derek Foxley found Samuel and Catherine's names as the parents of the groom in marriage records in Argentina. Thus, we now know that the Hause/Hawes line extends all the way to South America!
II. Lucy Ann Hawes was born on 15 Sep 1827 near Seneca Lake, New York, and died on 10 May 1876 in Dane County, Wisconsin. She married David Richardson. From Biographical Review of Dane County, WI.

Hawes, who was born near Seneca lake, NY, Sept. 15, 1827, and died on the old farm in Wisconsin, May 10, 1876. She was a daughter of Samuel and Catherine Hawes, natives respectively of New York and New Jersey. They came West in about 1849 or 1850, and the mother died in 1850, and the father is still living. Mr. and Mrs. Richardson had five children: Ira married Libby Martin; Adrian M. married Alla Miller; Clara married William Miller; Orrin C.; and one who died when one week old. David Richardson was again married, in 1877, to E. S. Plato, who died two years later. Mr. Richardson, the subject of this sketch, has suffered the privations of pioneer life. During the first year of his married life, only one-fourth of a pound of tea, a half pound of coffee and six pounds of sugar was all of that line of groceries used."
III. Edward Hause was born in 1829 in New York. On 29 May 1853 he married (1) Sarah Bardison in Dane, Wisconsin. He then married (2) Emma Personn on 23 Sep 1865 in Verona, Dane, Wisconsin, and the Marriage Record lists Samuel Hawes as Edward's father (Wisconsin Historical Society, Madison; FHL microfilm 1,275,924). Edward died in 1876.
IV. Albert B Hawes was born in Cattaraugus Co. NY, in 1830. He married Emily Jane Despain (25 Sep 1847 - 1870); Albert was a harnessmaker and fought for the Union in the Civil War, in the 2nd Regiment of the California Cavalry, Company L, joining as a Sergeant, and then becoming a Wagoner (Film Number: M533 roll 3). The Regiment was stationed at Camp Union, Sacramento, until June 1865, when it moved to the mining town of Dun Glen, Nevada, where it served defending against Indian attacks, until mustered out in the spring of 1866. Albert became a "desperado" and was killed in a shoot out in Utah on 3 May 1870. After Albert's violent death, his three children were adopted by other families. Those children were:

V. Alfred H Hawes was born in Cattaraugus Co. NY, in June of 1833. He married Mahala Algard on 12 Sep 1858 in Dane, Wisconsin. They are living with her parents in the 1860 Census. However, the very same Mahala Algard(t) married George Harrington in Feb 1862, so apparently she and Alfred had divorced. During the Civil War he joined the Union Army in California five days after his brother Albert, in October of 1861, signing up with the 2nd Regiment of the California Cavalry, Company L, as a Private (Film Number: M533 roll 3). But Alfred deserted and joined the Nevada Cavalry, and deserted again, until the war was over. In 1872, he married Martha Bailey (1834-1910) in Utah and became father to her two children, Mary A (1861-1925) and Mike Farrington Hawes (b. 1865). Alfred died in in Phillipsburg, Montana, in 1912.

The James Henry Foxley family, recently proven to be related through Y-DNA testing. Welcome to the family!
3. James Henry Hawes (Foxley) was born on 10 Aug 1868 in Ruby Valley, Elko, Nevada. (This genetic link was proven through Y-DNA testing of his great-grandson, Derek Foxley, which matched Bob Hause and this author.)

- Morris Fant HAUSE (HAWES) was born November 12, 1797 at Warwick, Orange County, New York. When very young his father removed to Steuben County, in the same state, where the son volunteered, although a mere boy, in the War of 1812. On May 17, 1818, young Hawes married Sarah, daughter of Capt. Nathan LOUNSBURY, at Rutland, Vermont, and with his bride started for Chautauqua County, New York, where they lived twelve years, and where their older children were born. In 1830 Mr. Hawes removed his family to Hillsdale, Michigan, where after a year or two he opened a tavern on the Detroit-Chicago road. In 1,837 he determined to migrate to Wisconsin, and in August arrived in Richmond Township, Waiworth County, of which he was the first settler, and which he was elected to represent as a Democrat in the constitutional convention. Mr. Hawes bought land at the Milwaukee land office in 1839, and lived on his farm until 1857, when he removed to Whitewater, and there died January 13, 1868. He was justice of the peace and county commissioner and held several local offices. Although elected to the convention he was unable to attend because of serious illness in his family.

They had the following children:
III. Lucerne Edmund Hawes (1829-1915). Among the first to brave the wilds of Walworth county was the Hawes family, members of which have aided very materially in its development during the past three-quarters of a century, for it was in the days of the wide-stretching forest, unused to the ring of the axeman, and the days of the Indian and wild deer when this family emigrated from the old Empire state, through a country of bad roads, across unbridged streams, toiling patiently for weeks until they reached this favored section of the commonwealth of Wisconsin, and, having the sagacity to foresee here a great future, established their home in Walworth county, where they became well fixed through their industry and were well known and influential in the life of the community. One of the best known of the present generation is L. Edmund Hawes, now living in retirement in his pleasant home in Whitewater, after a life of strenuous endeavor. He comes down to us from a pioneer age, and he has lived here to note wondrous changes in everything, taking a leading part in the upbuilding of the county, so that he is today highly honored by all who know him. Mr. Hawes was born in Chautauqua county, New York, August 14, 1829. He is the son of Morris F. and Sarah ( Lounsbury ) Hawes, the father born in Warwick, Orange county, New York, in 1797, and the mother born in Rutland, Vermont, in 1797. They grew up and were married in the East, and in 1837 they emigrated to Walworth county, Wisconsin, locating in Richmond township, squatting on land, and in 1839 they took up three hundred and seventy-five acres. Mr. Hawes walked from Richmond to Milwaukee to attend a land sale, which was then postponed, and he went a second time. He was a successful farmer, although he had hard work clearing and improving his land here from the wild condition in which he found the country. He finally sold his farm, retired from active life and moved to Whitewater, where his death occurred in January, 1868, his wife having preceded him to the grave in July, 1869. They had a family of nine children, of whom L. Edmund, of this sketch, and Dr. Palmer Hawes are the only ones living. Their son, Francis Marion Hawes, whose birth occurred on January 5, 1838; was the first white child born in Richmond township. Politically, Morris F. Hawes, the father, was a Democrat, and was prominent in political affairs, having been a member of the state Legislature in the early days, and he was a justice of the peace for many years. His wife belonged to the Episcopal church. L. Edmund Hawes, of this sketch, went with his parents to Lenawee county, Michigan, and his father kept a tavern between Coldwater and Au Train. He came overland to Walworth county, driving horses to Chicago and two yoke of oxen on to Walworth county, Wisconsin, living in the wagon and camping under trees until a home could be built. The subject grew up on the home farm, which he helped to clear and improve, and he received his education in the public schools, such as there were in those early times. He began a livery business in Whitewater in the year 1852, which he continued successfully for fifteen years, then bought a farm in Whitewater township, two miles from the city, remaining there twenty-nine years. He was very successful as a general farmer and stock raiser, and he added to his original holdings until his place consisted of four hundred acres of well improved and productive land, and he became one of the substantial agriculturists of the county. This land he still retains; however, retired from active life a number of years ago. moved to a pleasant home in Whitewater, where he still resides, enjoying the fruits of his former years of labor. He has bought and sold several valuable places in Whitewater. Politically, Mr. Hawes is a Democrat, but he has never been an aspirant to office, though he was pathmaster a number of years, during which time he built many good roads. Mr. Hawes was married in 1855 to Carrie Beamer, who was born in 1832, and to this union six children were born, namely: Stella, deceased: Harriet married Lincoln Gantt, of Tacoma, Washington; Mabel, wife of Edmund Lanngan, died in 1908; Fred married Catherine Smith and thev have two children, Harold and Charles ; Morris J. married Ida Wagner and they have one child, Edmund; Frank married Margaret Macdonald and they have two children.

She died on 12 Feb 2010 in Whitewater, Walworth County, Wisconsin. Her obituary: "Mrs. Harriett (Hawes) Brigham passed away on Friday evening, February 12, 2010, in her beautiful old Victorian home on Fremont Street, the famous one with the three Christmas trees in the windows. She had lived there since 1951, having raised three lovely daughters there with her husband, Merle Brigham, the love of her life. A heroine and a legend in the minds of her six adoring grandchildren, Harriett was 88 years old, a fact that failed to deter her from living every precious day of her dynamic, colorful life exactly the way she saw fit. Even in her final hours, Harriett was spotted all about Whitewater, attending to the daily business of a vibrant lady. While she would have been staunchly opposed to the prospect of such a sudden departure from the life and the people that she loved so much, Harriett was a woman of tremendous faith, and she knew in her heart that her husband, parents, brothers, and so many others would be waiting to meet her at the next stop. Harriett found something to appreciate and admire in each of the enumerable relatives, friends, and neighbors that filled her life and those feelings were clearly mutual. The honored matriarch of her family, Harriett's presence was always felt, even from afar, as her memory will continue to be.

"Harriett was born on Dec. 5, 1921, in Whitewater, WI, to Maurice and Clara (Scheels) Hawes. She grew up on Fremont Street, four houses down from the cherished home where she would gracefully preside over decades of holidays, get-togethers, and the daily affairs of her family. She married Merle Brigham on Feb. 5, 1944, at the First United Methodist Church in Whitewater. Merle preceded her in death on Dec. 4, 1976. Familiar to generations of Whitewater residents, Harriett was active in the First United Methodist Church of Whitewater, an enthusiastic member of Alpha Club, and a long-serving volunteer at the local polls on voting day. Before retiring in 1988, Harriett served for many years as an administrative secretary at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus library.

NOTES ON THIS PAGE:
¹William's birthdate changes from 1750 to 1751 because Britain and its colonies changed from the old style (Julian) calendar to the new style (Gregorian) calendar on January 1, 1752. But this change had occurred in Holland about 170 years earlier, in 1582, and the Gregorian calendar therefore was used in the Dutch colony of New Netherland (New York). The colony of New Netherland operated according to the laws and customs of the Netherlands province of Holland, where the new calendar had been in use since Pope Gregory introduced it in 1582. Therefore New Netherland records are dated as we would date them today, with the year beginning January 1 and no double-dating.
But under the old calendar in use prior to 1752 in Britain and its colonies, the year began on March 25, and March was the first month, February the twelfth. Dates in January, February, and the first 24 days of March were often "double-dated" to indicate both the past and incoming years. For example, what we would call February 24,1714 would then have been February 24, 1713, but could also be written February 24,1713/14. It would also have been the 24th of the twelfth month, not the second month.
When the new calendar was adopted, eleven days had to be dropped, and this was done by declaring that the day after September 2,1752 was September 14, 1752.
After the English conquered New Netherland in 1664, and except for the brief return of Dutch rule in 1673-74, the old (Julian) calendar was used in official documents, but the Dutch often continued using the Gregorian calendar (or some aspects of it) in their church and family records.
Some genealogists have tried to convert all old style dates to their new equivalents, and published only the new forms, just like we say George Washington was born February 22, 1732, when at the time he was born the date was February 11, 1731/2.
