I have found, in the last two weeks, information that says that there were three Schauss brothers that came to the USA from Germany. John, (Johan Georg), (Johann and sometimes Johan) Adam Schauss, and Henry Schauss.
I haven't looked it up, but I have a paper that says the John came to America on the ship Samuel.
Johann Adam Schauss was born 1704 in Albisheim, Pfalz, Germany.He died Dec 12, 1770 in Bethania, Rowan Co, NC.He came to the USA on Sept 1,1736 aboard the Ship Harle from Rotterdam, Holland to Philadelphia, PA.Check http//www.ristenbatt.com/genealogy.It has the passenger list with Adam's name listed.(I have found the Johan Adam Schauss many times is called Adam) I found a lot of my information on the internet at"WorldConnect Project" which had information on the Shows that goes back to Johanne Shauss 1625-1674, the father of Johanne Bernhart Schauss 1650-1734, father of Johann Conrad Schauss b. 1674 or 1675, death unknown, father of Johann Adam Schauss 1704-1770 who came to America in 1736.He is the father of John Conrad Schauss 1737 or 38 to aft 1791, father of Jacob Shows bet. 1770-1780 D. unknown. Father of Joseph Daniel Shows Sr. 1811-1858 in Bibb CO. AL.Father of Henry Warren Shows 1838-1876, father of Joseph H Shows 1872-1945, father of John Thomas Shows 1897-1942, who was the father of James Leonard Shows 1939.(That is my husband). Do you have any more information about their history.I have who they married, and dates, but I am looking for facts about them. Thank you very much for your help.
