Re: House family
I believe I am also descended from Johann Christian House from the Palatine.My family may be connected through Harmanus House, son of Conrad and Entjelji, who fought for the British in Butler's Rangers and emigrated to Upper Canada about 1781. He settled in Clinton township near Beamsville, Ontario, had sons Daniel, Joseph, John and George. I can trace my lineage back to Joseph House (1816-1900), who married Louisa Sullivan about 1840 in Grimsby Township, then moved to Brantford, Simcoe and finally returned to Grimsby Village in 1882. Any information on the parentage of this Joseph House would be much appreciated. I am guessing that he was the son of George, the youngest son of Harmanus the U.E.L.
