Hoping to find a connection to my great great grandmother, Mary Ann Blythe, who, according to census records, was born in Ohio and married John Henry Housen (native of Germany) and moved to Louisiana and later Austin, Texas, where she died. She was a seamstress. His occupation was listed as machinist.
Mary Ann Blythewas born circa 1827 – 1828.Census records have her birthplace as Ohio andparents born in Kentucky.She may have been born in Stark County, Ohio.
She married John Henry Housen, about 1857somewhere. Their daughters were named Ida and Mollie and sons, Henry, William and Thomas.
By 1865 Mary and John Henry were in New Orleans, Louisiana.
