My grandfather on my mothers side is named Harrold Householder. We have been LDS for many generations. We have traced his lineage back to Hans michael Haushalter, brother of Lorentz Haushalter whom I expect is the father of the Lorentz Haushalter shown here. According to our records, there appears to have been a rift between Lorentz Haushalter Sr and his father Johannes Haushalter and family as we find Johannes had 3 children, Hans Michael born 1650, Lorentz born 1657 and Anna Eva born 1663. We can trace the line of Hans Michael, from whom my grandfather decended, but only show that Lorentz Sr had one son, Hans Michael. I am certain he had another son, Lorentz Jr, but have no record of it.
    Do you have any information that might show the family of Lorentz Sr. and his father Johannes Haushalter and mother?

    1. David,
      thanks for commenting.

      I don’t have any direct evidence on the ancestry of Lorentz Haushalter. His gravestone says: “Born in Rußheim in the Province of the Border Count Durlach in Europe.” He was born 13 Aug 1727 in Rußheim and married Margaretha Hacker on 24 Nov 1750 in Rußheim. I believe his parents likely were Lorentz Haushalter (3 May 1696—?) and Maria Barbara Hager (31 Jul 1700—?) of Rußheim. They married 20 Jan 1722 and had children: Johann George (12 Feb 1723—24 Apr 1733), Johann Friedrich (17 Jul 1724—5 Aug 1795), Lorentz, Christoph (18 Sep 1731—5 Jan 1735), and Anna Catharina (bef May 1736—?).

      I believe Lorentz Haushalter (1696—?) was the son of Lorentz Haushalter (1657—12 Dec 1701) and Margaretha Kaerber of Rußheim. They may have had a son Johann Michael in 1694. Lorentz (1657—1701) was, I believe, the son of Johannes Haushalter (ca 1620—?). Johannes Haushalter’s great grandson, Johann Adam Haushalter (Johannes3, Johannes Michael2, Johannes1) married Maria Elisabetha Weidman, sister to Matthias Weidman, the father of Maria Elisabetha Weidman who married my ancestor Johan Adam Hacker, brother of Anna Margaretha (Hacker) Haushalter. Maria Elisabetha (Weidman) Haushalter and Matthias Weidman’s brothers John and Johan George also married Haushalters, possibly sisters of Johann Adam Haushalter.

      All the information I have on these Haushalters came from the IGI and Keith Dull’s Early Families of Lancaster, Lebanon & Dauphin Counties Pennsylvania.

What do you think?
