Yes, we connect on this Eusey/Jusi family!This is an unusual name and, besides my close relation, I have corresponded with only a couple Eusey people who are related.I know there are Euseys still living in Crawford and near-by Richland County (and I met a couple Eusey cousins at my grandfather's funeral in Shelby, OH, in March 2000).There are at least four Euseys living in Galion yet.
My great-grandmother was Lola Delight (Eusey) Sand (1905-1985), daughter of John and Mary Ella (Mills) Eusey of North Robinson, Crawford County, Ohio.John Eusey (1869-1942) was the brother of your Benjamin Franklin Eusey (1871-1955) who married Margaret "Maggie" Aurelia Bogan (1876-1948).
"Your" B. Frank Eusey (1871-1955) and "my" John Eusey (1869-1942) were sons of Samuel Jusi/Eusey (1814/18-1886; a native of Aeschi, Frutigen, Canton of Berne, Switzerland) and Theodora "Dora" Johanna (Newhouse/Neuhaus) Jusi/Eusey (1837-1899; a native of Sidenbuch, Hessen, Germany).
"Our" Samuel Eusey was the son of Johannes Jusi (1767-1829) and Anna Andrist (1780-1850) of Aeschi, Switzerland.Two other sons of Johannes and Anna (Andrist) Jusi also immigrated to America: Johannes and Christian.Some of them lived in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.
One of the Christman "cousins" --I think it was John "Elwood" (b. 1911), son of Aaron and Mary "Barbara" (Eusey) Christman-- traveled to Switzerland a couple times.Coral (Eusey) Eckstein, daughter of Michael Eusey (1864-1914), also visited Switzerland and died over there in 1966.Coral's daughter, Phyllis, is living is Woodinville, WA and corresponds with my Grandma Rosella, her second cousin.
I have quite a bit on the Eusey family from the papers of my great-grandmother, and letters from the Cristman, Stogie and Eusey "cousins".I have a transcribed copy of the family record from the Bible of Samuel and Dora Jusi/Eusey, copies of church records from Aeschi, Switzerland, and obituary and other notices for many family members in Ohio.
I also have a large copied photograph of a Eusey family reunion in 1930 sent to me by Helen Nelson of Iberia, OH; her husband, Don, descends from a Eusey through the Stogie family.They was able to identify a half dozen people; my grandma Rosella recognized about two dozen more and I am waiting to see if cousin Phyllis recognizes anyone else.Maybe you could identify some relation too?!
I do not have Woodrow "Tubby" Christman in my file, but if he was a son of Aaron and Barbara (Eusey) Christman, then he was a brother to Leah Alberta (b. 1902), Herman Henry (b. 1908), and John "Elwood" (b. 1911).I have a letter from Herman to my great-grandmother with genealogical information, but these three were the only children he listed for his parents, Aaron and Barbara; and the obituary of Barbara (Eusey) Christman (1874-1964) does not mention a Woodrow "Tubby".We'll sort it out!
I will send you some e-mails with attachments in Microsoft word: information on the Jusi/Eusey, Neuhaus/Newhouse, and Andrist families.I have only been at this family history project a short time, too, but have been blessed with sentimental grandparents who never threw anything away and lots of pieces of the puzzle coming together!I am very pleased to receive your message and very happy to share and exchange information!I am interested in information on any cousins named Eusey and anyone who descends from "our" Euseys.
