ARMSHEIM TO INDIANA
Can anyone connect this Hausman family with any other Hausman(n)'s of Vanderburgh/Posey Indiana?
Has anyone here done any research in Armsheim?
Peter HAUSSMANN, b 1835, came from Armsheim Germany with his family, Maria Elisabetha (MARTIN), children Katharina b. 1862, Eva b.1864, and Wilhelm b.1865. They arrived at the port of NY on the ship the "John Bertram". on 7 Jul 1866. In 1870, They were listed as HOUSMAN in Marrs Twp Posey Co., IN census. "Mary" Elisabeth died sometime between 1871 and 1778, because Henry HAUSMAN was born 1868 & Charles HAUSMAN was born 5 Jul 1871 Vanderburgh Co. and Peter remarried to a Barbara (HITZLER / HITZEL) SCHAEFER on 9 Apr 1878 Vanderburgh Co..
Peter and Barbara show up in the 1880 Center Twp, Vanderburgh Co. IN Census as HAUSMAN with SCHAVER step children as well.
Peter and Barbara had children Hannah HAUSMANN b. 1879 and Emma Margaretha HOUSMAN b. 1884, who were baptized at the Salem United Methodist Church of Evansville. Peter died at age 54 on 19 Oct 1890 in Center Twp, McCuntchanville, Vanderburgh Co.
A Philipp HAUSMANN was in this area (Marrs Twp, Posey Co.) also reportedly from Armsheim, who, may be a brother or cousin? There was also a John HAUSMAN b. abt 1804, from "Hesse-Darmstadt" who is shown to be living with Jacob Fredrick SCHLIMM / SCHLUMN in 1870 and 1880, and is listed as an uncle. Does anyone know how he might connect or where he was from? Armsheim was part of that region (Hesse-Darmstadt) at the time. If anyone can help with this line please let me know.
