ELIZABETH YOUNG (1746 1813) and JOSEPH HOUSE (1742 1821)




Elizabeth Young was born 1746, died 13 Apr. 1813. She married Joseph House (Jost Hauss) and resided at the Geissenburg Settlement near Ft. Plain, NY. Her husband Joseph supported the Patriot cause during the Revolution, and claimed the property of his father-in-law (Adam)) on Young's Lake after the War.


L.H. Shultz suggests that Mary who md. Wm. Cunningham; Abraham, b. 24 Mar 1795; and Margretha, b. 29 Dec. 1796, were children of Jost Haus and Elizabeth (--). The dates of birth make this seem unlikely. In addition, Melvin R. Shaver records that Abram House who married Maria Smith was a son of Major Joseph House and wife Elizabeth Young - however both resources provide little information on the Joseph House line.


The prime resource for this branch of the family is Ken Johnson formerly of Nebraska and Kansas, and now of Ft. Plain, NY.
