HOUSER Families


Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana

There is a Houserville in Pennsylvania, located in Centre County, perhaps near State College.

I have found very little on my HOUSER family of Pennsylvania. There were other HOUSER's in Fort Wayne, Allen County, Indiana when my KELKER's were living in the second half of the 1800's and are buried nearby in Lindenwood Cemetery. At least one was a railroader like the KELKER's so I wonder if they are relatives of Mary HOUSER KELKER but have not found the connection.

My third great-grandmother Mary HOUSER 1802 Pennsylvania to Mahoning County to Delphos, Allen County, Ohio to 1883 Fort Wayne, Allen County, Indiana and David KELKER 1801 Lebanon County, Pennsylvania to Goshen, Mahoning County to Delphos, Allen County, Ohio to 1872 Fort Wayne, Allen County, Indiana.

4th great-grandparents Peter HOUSER and Barbara BRECHT comes from the Kelker book. Peter is found in 18th century Lancaster - now Lebanon County, Pennsylvania tax records in Schaefferstown. A likely relative Daniel Braught was in Dauphin and Lebanon County, Pennsylvania records. Need to search Heidelberg Congregation, 1765-1864, Schaefferstown, Lebanon County, PA records for Barbara Brecht Hauser.

Two different parents are found for Peter HOUSER. Mathias or Ludwig?
