Name: Joseph C. House was born between 1745 and 1750 in New York.
↑ Source: #S282 Joseph C. House, son of Conrad and Margaretha and our ancestor, probably b. c.1745-50, (he wasnt yet 20 to qualify as a taxpayer on the 1766 role) served as Corporal in Capt. Joseph Houses Company of the Canajoharie District Regiment of Militia. (NOTE: Captain House was a cousin of our Corporal. He married Elizabeth Young; both are buried in Geisenburg Cemetery in Minden Twp., Montgomery Co. NY.) Cpl. Joseph C. House married Elisabeth ___ and had an unknown number of children, among them were Johan Joseph C. House, our ancestor, and Maria (Mary), both possibly b. early 1770s, Christina b. 1776 and Jacobus (aka James) b.1779. In the 1780 attack on Fort Plank, the enemy took his wife Elisabeth, and Christina and Jacobus. Her captors killed Christina during the march to Canada. The 1790 census for Canajohari Twp. in Montgomery Co. lists a Yost Seahouse (written by an imaginative census taker), and hes the only Joseph C. House in the record with appropriate age-groups: (male over 16, 3 males under 16, and 2 females). Christina was dead by 1780, leaving Johan and Jacobus plus one more male, Maria and wife Elisabeth.
