Thanks to Larry Kistner for his on-going work on this family. Somehow I had disconnected  Mariah Bailey and David Greathouse from the main family. Thankfully, my back-up showed me where I went wrong, and that is now corrected.  Deleted Virgil A. Greathouse, son of Rachel Walser. Census, obituary, and other data show this child was clearly in error.  We already  moved Virgil to what is now the Herman Groethausen family, and left this one while we made certain there was not a second Virgil A. Greathouse before deleting completely.
20 Jul 2008 The Orphans file has added information for William Henry Greathouse born abt 1872-1876 in Kentucky. Orphans information for the Vernon George Greathouse family has been moved to Solomon Greathouse and Catherine Little. Also, sisters Maude and Cyrena Greathouse have been moved from the John Greathouse and Elizabeth family to Orphans, because of lack of documentation to support their presence in the John Greathouse and Elizabeth file.

12 Apr 2008

We have updated information for Mary Elizabeth Vandal married to William Anderson Greathouse and their descendants.  There is compelling evidence that Mary Elizabeth Vandal/Vandale was married to William Anderson Greathouse in our  John Greathoue and Sarah McDade family, not to William Asa Greathouse, as previously thought in our John Greathouse and Catharina family.  Patti Lalack Hutterli contributed much of this family's information and has provided convincing evidence that this is the correct connection for Mary Elizabeth Vandale to the Greathouse family.

11 Apr 2008 New John Greathouse and Elizabeth family file started from old John of Virginia file.  John Greathouse Sr. and John Greathouse Jr. have been updated with many new individuals and lots of new source documents including tax records.  Aesearch group is continuing to add information for other descendants of John Greathouse Sr.  Many thanks to Vivian Taylor, Louise Johnson and Penny Knapp.
11 Apr 2008 Our John Greathouse and Catharina family file has had over 100 pictures and obituaries to the family files with the information included from the obituaries and tombstones.  Areas with the most new information include descendants of: Tilghman Howard Aley, Samuel B. Greathouse, Freddy Younger Greathouse, Cleveland Greathouse and Charley Lee Greathouse.  Thanks to Marvetta Springs Childs, Sandy Faler, Patty Hutterli, Melba Magnus, and Larry Kistner.  We have also removed the Leroy Pennington line from John and Catharina as we have now determined that this family belongs in the John Greathouse of Virginia and Elizabeth family.
