Hi Leigh,Glad to get your response.This is all I know:from History of Columbia&Montour Counties: "Henry Faus was born in Lehigh county PA where he lived and died, having been a farmer all his life.He married Elizabeth Hepler, who after his death came with her children to Columbia county,and still later moved to Michigan, where she died.For her 2nd husband she married a Mr Krisher, and after his death she took as her 3rd husband Joseph Snyder. Henrly Faus and his wife had the following children: Thomas;Henry; Polly, who marriedPeter Whitney;and Eliza,who married Abraham Krauss" There is more stuff on Thomas and Henry (my line). In try-ing to find out when HenrySr Elizabeth died I did research on Julia and have tried Eliza with no luck. On Julia: Abt 1833 marriage based on birth of dau Elizabeth. Census 1840 Lycoming Co Franklin Twp under Jacob D Foucht, 1850 same under Faft, 1870Lycoming Jordan PO Unityville under Foch; 1880 Lycoming Jordan under Fought. Salem Cemetery: Julia A Fought died 29 Feb 1892 77y5m25d, Facob D Fought died 16 Jan 1889 78y8m16d. I figured her birth backwards from death at 4 Sep 1814. Could definitely be a little off. A web sight gives birth as 25 Sep 1815.Site:

Julia could be a product of the second marriasge. Where did you get the Krischner from? I have worked on this Faus line for a long time with minimal success so every little clue helps. My Henry married Mary DeLong, Thomas married Rachel Robbins. Looking forward to hearing from you. Marilyn
