Hausmann / Houseman
Hi, I am looking for any relatives (living or deceased). My last name is Houseman, however I recently learned that my great-great grandfather Michael changed it from Hausmann somewhere between 1870 and 1880.
I don't know much about Michael (brothers, sisters, parents) except that he came from Bavaria. He married a woman named Mary, however I don't have a maiden name (we figure around 1862 or 1863). He had four children: George (my Great Grandfather), twins Harry A. and Michael, and a daughter Mary.
This is what I have on Michael's children:
-George married Anna Rielly and had five children (Jacob, Clara, George, Viola, and Patrick). He died in an accident in Philadelphia in 1905.
-Harry married a woman named Ann and had three children: Harold, Emma, and Wilbur. Harry was the president of a company (looks like Standard knitting or Standard heating??). He is buried in Northeast Philadelphia and has a Masonic lodge named after him.
Any info would be great.
