I am looking for a Frederick (school master)and Susanna Margareta Kraus who disappeared from records in Lehigh County after 1791. They had 4 children baptized at Ziegle Church in Weisenburg twp. Anna Maria - 1784, Susanna - 1786, Anna Fredrica - 1788, and Johan Frederick - 1790. Though for most of the records the name was spelled Graus or Grause ther is one record that has the name spelled Kraus.

There is also a reference to a Frederick Graus and a Susanna Wegman as sponsors for a baptism at Ziegles.

I don't if this is the same family but would be happy to share information.

Hi Kathy,

I descend from the Kraus/Crouse line that you mention.

The Johan Frederick that was christened in 1790 married Salome and they had 9 children, some of whom where also christened at Ziegels Church. This Frederick & Salome were buried in Trinity Cemetery, Black Creek, Luzerne.

Their son, Frederick, who was born & christened at Ziegels in 1815 was my 3rd Great Grandfather.

I would love to compare notes. What is your connection?

Dianne,
I would be happy to share information. I do not have the name of all the children of Fredrick and Salome:Frederick, Peter,Jacob. I have been tracing the family of Frederick (his son) and Magdalena (Benninger)for my husband Charles Miller. Frederick and Magdalena had seven or eight children of which I can only verify six: Jacob, Steven, Christian, Dorthea, Francis, Luisianna. Christian is the next in our line. He had nine children with Hanna Sophia (Benninger): Lloyd, Oliver, Lydia, Rosetta, Florence, Walter, Carrie, Foster, and Clara. Foster is my husband's grandfather. He had four girls with Susan Delila(Markle) Naomi, Miriam, Violet, and Susanne. Naomi married Charles Miller.
The earliest information I have is that John Frederick Graus, Ludimaister (school teacher) at Zeigel's Lutheran in Weisenberg twp Lehigh Co. had four children with Susanna Margaret: Anna Marie (1784), Susanna (1786), Anna Friederica (1988), and Johann Friederick (July 28 1790). There is a reference to the death of the school master/mistress (depending on the transcriber)in 1791.

I hope you can fill in some names for me.

Hi Kathy,

This is what I have on Johan Frederich and Salome. I only have the names of 5 of their children. The bio for Augustus Crouse (copied at the bottom of this post) says they had 9 children with 6 making it to maturity. Who knows if it is accurate. The bio also states that the father of Johan Frederich was Samuel which I think is wrong. I think we have both found that his parents were Johan Frederick & Margaret Suzanna. Maybe Samuel was a previous generation?

Johan Frederich Crouse (Johan Frederick) was born in 1790 in Weisenberg Twp.. He was christened on 4 Aug 1790 in Ziegels Lutheran & Reformed,Weisenberg Twp. Lehigh,PA. He died in 1856. He was buried in Trinity Cemetery,Mountain Grove,Black Creek Twp. Luzerne Co. PA.

Frederick Crouse was born on 15 Oct 1815. He was Christened 10 APR 1817 Ziegels Lutheran And Reformed, Weisenberg Twp, Lehigh, Pa. He died on 21 Sep 1883.

BIOGRAPHY: History of Luzerne County, by H.C. Bradsby, 1893

AUGUSTUS CROUSE, carpenter, P.O. Rock Glen, was born in North Union, Schuylkill Co., Pa., February 2, 1850, a son of Peter and Matilda (Pennybaker) Crouse. His great grandfather, Samuel Crose, a native of Germany, was a Revolutionary soldier, serving throughout the entire war. His grandfather, Frederick Crouse, a native of Pennsylvania, was a pioneer of Black Creek township, where he cleared a large farm and died. He had a family of nine children, of whom six grew to maturity. Peter, the father of our subject, was the eighth child, and was reared in Black Creek township. In 1851 he removed to Auglaize county, Ohio, where he still resides. His children were Mary A., Augustus, John, Sarah, Cynthia, Gabriel and Clara. Our subject was reared in Auglaize county, Ohio, serving a apprenticeship of two years at the carpenter's trade, and in 1875 located in Black Creek township, where he has since resided and followed his trade. He married Hannah, daughter of Samuel and Lydia (Eroh) Shellhammer, of Black Creek township, and he has five children living: Clara May, Bertha Maud, Stella Elizabeth, Mintil Pearl and Mabel Grace.

you will find lots of good info about the Binninger and leimenstoll lines here. Sharon was very helpful when I contacted her a few years back.
