About Greathouse Descendants USA
Many Greathouse descendants have completed their lines back to the original Greathouse  settler in Philadelphia PA - Herman Groethausen - while others are still seeking their  roots in America and still others are currently tying Herman's line back to Germany.

Most West Virginia Greathouses can trace their ancestry to the Greathouses of the  northern Panhandle Counties - or - to the Greathouses of Monongalia and Preston  County - or - to the Greathouses of Harrison County WV - or - to John Greathouse who  was born about 1778 somewhere in VA and who married Sarah McDade in 1806 in Mason County VA.

John and Sarah McDade Greathouse and their children lived in the part of (W)VA that  was part of different counties at different times -  Mason, Kanawha, Jackson, Wirt and  finally Roane County, WV where John died in 1866. He is buried in Spencer, Roane  County, WV.

In searching for the parents of my ancestor, John Greathouse, I gathered information  about many other Greathouse lines. There are many different lines of Greathouses on  this site along with allied family listings, totalling over 6000 people.

This is an on-going search.  I have recorded information from documents, descendants  and many other sources, some more accurate than others.  If you are researching this  line and have questions or more accurate data, please contact me at  betty.renick@gmail.com

The site is searchable by surname by clicking on a letter of the alphabet below - or -  by entering information in the search box above. If you are interested in a particular person,  and desire more details, please Email me.

As you scroll through listings you will find some are marked with a RED square. This  square indicates that the person is a direct descendant of the John and Sarah McDade  Greathouse line, which is my direct line.
