Family of Conrad Lautzenhausser and Maria Magalena Thielmann
About 1660 is as far back as we can get on the Lautzenhausser (LautzenhauBer) family of Lautzenhaussen Rhineland,Germany.The family was married and Baptised in the tiny village of Sohren, Germany not far from Lautzen.People still do as they did hundreds of years ago in this tiny Village they rise early and head for the fields to tend their crops.The tiny Church with a tall steeple still stands in the Village where the family attended. Conrad married Maria Magdalena Thielmann in 1708 Sohren according to the Church records. Conrad died before 1741 Sohren. Maria was the widow of Johann Matthias Schmidt who died in 1697. Maria and Conrad had two children that we know of. Anna Magdalena born abt. 1709 and Henrich David Lautzenhiser, born 10 Oct. 1711, our immigrant. He married a French girl from alsace Lorraine, France.( name unknown) From this couple descends thousands of descendants in America.
Henrich David Lautzenhiser (Lautzenhausser) and Maria Catherina ?
Henrich David Lautzenhiser was born 10 Oct. 1711, Sohren, Rhineland Germany, the son of Conrad Lautzenhausser and Maria Magdalena Thielmann. According to the Church Records of Sohren they had the following Children:
1. Johann Jakob, born 1736 Sohren, died 14 feb. 1806 West Salem, Mercer County,Pa.He married Elizabeth Margaretha Bohrn, 15 jan. 1760 in Buechenbeurn, Germany. Elizabeth died before 1800 in Westmoreland County, Pa. as she wasn't mentioned being with Johann when he moved into Mercer county in 1800. Johann Jacobs clan uses the spelling (Loutzenhiser)( see family of Johann Jacob on another forum)
2.Henrich Balthasar, born 1 March 1739 Sohren, Germany. His Estate was proven, 19 Sept. 1805, Westmoreland Co. Pa.He was in the Rev. War under Capt. James Young's company 1780 to 81. His wife was named Elizabeth..
3. Johann Nickel, born 2 october 1741, Sohren, Germany
4.Johann Peter, born 20 Feb. 1744 Sohren, Germany died 5 March 1805, Beaver County, Pa.
Johann Peter married Anna Barbara Schneider. Several of his descendants went into Stark County, Ohio.(see family of)
5. Son, born 23 Jan. 1747 Sohren, Germany "name too faded in old Church record to read"
Henrich, Johnann,and Peter came to America with their families on the Ship "Snow Tryall" 2 Dec. 1764.They eventually settled in Hempfield, Westmoreland Co. Pa. before the westward migration begin.Many new settlers were killed by the Natives in this area and it has been handed down that Henrich David and Maria Catherina were killed during one of the uprisings.
Mark Painter, Rt.1 Box 1060, fredonia, Pa. spent many months finding data at Court Houses, etc. He does have books for sale on the Johann Jacob line that contains many maps and Court records.There are several researchers on the family and we all try to combine our data, and we welcome any data from any other researchers of the family that we don't know about. It seems that Henrich Balthasar had all girls, one possibly being named Mary. Could use help on this family line. Johann Nickel, either died young or remained in Germany with relatives.Also the unnamed son, the youngest remained in Germany or died young.This leaves Johann Jacob and Johann Peter being the ones who started the hugh Loutzenhiser and Lautzenhiser families of America...

This Family needs lots of work
A surname variant that you didn't list is mine, Lutzenhiser.
I have traced back as far as John Joseph Lutzenhiser,
who was married to Minna Gregg (he was born in 1843).
I am pretty sure that he was the son of
Joseph Henry (you have L.) Lutzenhiser, who
was married to Samantha Graves (you have Groves).
I think that the spelling changed to Lutzenhiser about
this time. I would be happy to share what I
have, limited though it may be. If this family
needs lots of work. I guess that I should do
it as it is my branch. How are you related to
the Lutzenhisers (Loutzen..Lautzen..etc)?
I am responding to your message because I am one lost lautzenheiser that can not find his roots. My name is Jeffrey T. Lautzenheiser and I was born in 12/07/1960.

I beleive he was from Ohio, or I think that he was station in Ohio.

I have never done any research on the Lutzenhisers. I know when the census was taken one time in Westmoreland Co. they spelled the name Lutzenhiser, but was later spelled correctly as spelled in Germany Lautzenhiser or Lautzenhaussen, Lautzenhaussen Germany is near the Hahn Airforce base in Rhineland Germany and the tiny Village of Sohren where my Lautzenhisers were born and baptised still looks about the same as it did when they were there. The tiny Church is still there and the people still arise early each morning and go to the fields to work in their crops.My Ancestor Conrad Lautzenhaussen, later Lautzenhiser after coming to America in 1764, married Maria Magdalene Thielmann ( a widow, she was married to a Schmidt) This is as far back (1660) as we could find in records in Sohren. Only two children listed for them Magdalena and Henrich David (our Ancestor who came to America on the Ship Tryall 2 Dec. 1764. Sorry I can't be of more help. Gladys Turman
Jeffery, please forgive me for being so long to reply to your message, but I have been so busy this summer that i haven't worked on my message boards lately. You are no doubt descended from the Henrich Peter Lautzenhiser clan that went into Beaver Co. Pa. and then later some of his children went to Stark County, Ohio. I am from the brother of Henrich Peter, who used the spelling of Loutzenhiser and went into Mercer County, Pa. then my David Loutzenhiser went into Summit County, Ohio about 1828 and later moved to Pike County, Illinois.It is hard finding people after 1920 as thats when the Census records cut off. you might try the Social Security records but if he is still living that wouldn't help you either.Have you tried the white pages of ohio? There are Web sites that have people searches on them. Sorry i couldn't be of help. Gladys Turman
