HAUSFELD posted by Eric Hausfeld on Tuesday, July 7, 1998

I am searching for information on two people with the surname HAUSFELD.

1. Joseph HAUSFELD purchased land in Jackson Twp. Mercer County at the time (later Auglaize) in township 8S, Range 4E. He does not seem to be related to the main family I am researching Heinrich Clemens HAUSFELD. He does nom appear in the census data for that year, and I am unable to find his name on passenger lists.

2. Garret HAUSFELD appears on the census data for Mercer County for 1840. He does not appear after that time. I am unable to find his name on passenger lists, (perhaps would be listed at Gerhard).

I would appreciate any information or suggestions for either of these two persons.
