Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Luther HAWS

Residences & events:

1840 New Albany, Floyd Co, IN. Was it this couple living there at census time? Recorded as Luther Hause, 30-40, with 1 female aged 20-30?

8/16/1850 Same place, the part of the city north of State St. According to that census, Luther Haws was a 42 year old grave digger with real estate worth $800. Wife Anna F H was 38 and their children were Isaac J H, 7, and Joseph L, 1. Living with the family was Jason Haws, 83 (Luther's father?), and Esther Brown, 43, relationship unstated but she was born in NJ so was probably a sister.

6/19/1860 Still there. Family dynamics had changed by the next census. Luther was recorded at age 54, a sexton with property valued at $1000/150. Wife Anna was gone but sons Isaac, 17, and Theadore, 11, were there as well as Jane McGuire, 30. (Jane may have been a niece, the daughter of James and Sarah Stark McGuire.)
