Thank you for the response. It is cool to meet a distant cousin in such a way! I appreciate all the work you have done regarding the House line. My cousin gave me a family tree a few years ago when my uncle Sam passed, and was able to trace my line with that. Uncle Sam was buried in the House cemetary out in Pollard in Jessamine County, as was my father, David, who passed in May 2010. I can tell you that two of my dads brothers, Hansel and Lewis, are buried at Camp Nelson National Cemetary here in Jessamine County. Lewis was killed in action in WW2. Hansel was a member of the National Guard. These were all sons of Clifton House. There is one surviving offspring of Clifton, and that is Roy House. He lives in Ohio, near Dayton. When he came in for my dads funeral, he told me he had quite a bit of info on the House family. I hope to be able to get some of that info from him. Cheers!
I'm finally getting your answer posted.
My line is: Mathias House, Adam House, Jacob House, Francis Marion House,
Malinda Ellen House Welch, Rex Sterling Welch, and me, Rexene Welch Pennell.
Nancy has posted some history on my grandparents Riley and "Ellie" House Welch.
We still have a Welch reunion. Years ago, there was the Welch-House Reunion because the two House sisters married the two Welch brothers, Riley and Charlie.
Sorry it took so long to reply. My grandmother, Nora Ethel Bussell White's mother was Louisa Ellen House Bussell. Louisa Ellen's father was Jacob House Jr. I have some information on that branch but am still not sure if it is correct yet. I do hope that with all the information that is being shared here on this site that I might get the answers that I need. Thanks for asking, Ron.
