Family Reunion Forum
In Response To: House/Barnes ()
Congratulations on your reunion...I am also House....that is my mother was Felicia Louise House born about 1899, one of six children born to John and Martha House. The House family I belong to come from Rowan County, N.C., in Gold Hill Township.
Joel House my greatgrandfather was aborn about 1824, lived in Cabarrus County, N.C. and considered a free person of color. He was married to Kaziah, who appears in the 1870 RowanCounty census at 46; and she had four sons: Josiah House, Monroe House, Martin House, and John House. John House, my grandfather was born in 1860 and died in 1910; he married Martha Crowell, daughter of Andrew and Rachael Crowell, in November 1885. They had six children: Fred in 1888, Eugene in 1894, Maggie in 1890, Felicia in 1899, Theola in 1901, and Frankie in 1903. We have had some reunions, but now slacked off for a while, and just might get back into the stream of things. Wonder if we are related though. Joseph
