WELCOME to our family research forum for the"Greathouse Orphans". Greathouse Orphans are any families that are unconnected to the Greathouse families above.

Come on in , look around for  some new cousins, and set a spell!

You may already belong to the Greathouse mailing list and participate in Greathouse Point, but this forum focuses on the branches of the Greathouse family we call Greathouse Orphans. Through your efforts, we hope to connect these "orphans" with their larger families.

Please join us, visit often,  and become an active member of our community.

If you have any problems, questions, or comments please let me know!

If you are a "Greathouse Orphan" please post your lineage to share with the other researchers in our group.

As an example, though I am from the John and Catharina Haack group, mine is:

-John unknown? parent of Samuel B Greathouse Sr.
and John Greathouse and Catharina Elissen Haack parents of Susannah
---Samuel Brown Greathouse Sr. and Susannah Greathouse
---Samuel Brown Greathouse Jr. and Mary "Polyp" Arnold
---Louis Thomas Greathouse and Judia Alice Joseph
--- Sidney Neal Greathouse and Cloa Seitz
--- Melbadine Greathouse and Harold A Magnus
--- Carol Lynn Magnus (Me) and Stanley R. Leonard

I am certain of mine back through Louis Thomas.
