The Pennsylvania Honse Family

Updated April 22, 2001

About Our Family Research


I know very little about the Honse side of my family and was hoping some of the information could be filled in by starting this site. My great grandfather was named Joseph Bostian Honse. He married Jennie Widger and they had four children: William Woodard, John, Leola, Mayme and Blanche. Leola died in infancy. I do not know where Joseph came from but heard that he was of German ancestrage and affiliated with the Pennsylvania Dutch, possibly from the Somerset area.

John and William came to the Luzerne County area where they farmed. William married Caroline Matilda Jones and they had 16 children. John and Mayme had no children. They moved to Florida and took two of William's daughters to raise.
