 "Henry Geise, son of Samuel, was born Jan. 15, 1818, in Ohio, whither his father had emigrated from Mahanoy township, making the trip by wagon. The family remained in that State only one year, however, returning to Pennsylvania and settling in Snyder county. Mr. Geise passed his earlier years in Snyder and Union counties, operating gristmills, and, about 1850 came to Point township, Northumberland county, where he engaged in farming and passed the remainder of his long life, dying July 9, 1900. He is buried at Northumberland. He owned his own farm of eighty-one acres, which he cultivated until his retirement, being succeeded there by his son Samuel, who is now deceased. In religion Mr. Geise was a Lutheran. His wife, Susanna, was a daughter of Henry and Sarah (Frederick) Brouse, of Kratzerville, Snyder county, and they were the parents of two children, Samuel and Henry F. The former was a farmer in Point township; his children were William, Dora, Harvey, Ammon, and Anna (deceased)."

1850
1850 United States Federal Census about Henry Gise

Birthplace: Ohio
Home in 1850: Penns, Union, Pennsylvania

Family Number: 664
Household Members:
Name Age
Henry Gise 30
Susanna Gise 20
Samuel Gise 2
Sarah Gise        2/12
William Clark 21
The date on this census page is September 24 - so I am estimating that Sarah was born in July.  There is no mention of her in Floyd's History of North'd County, nor is she in the 1860 census.



1850 - Moved to Point Twp, Northumberland County PA
"Mr. Geise passed his earlier years in Snyder and Union counties, operating gristmills, and abou 1850 came to Point township, Northumberland county, where he engaged in farming and passed the remainder of his long life."

Household Members:

Henry Geist 40
Susanna Geist 29
Samuel Geist 13
Not named Geist 9/12

Sarah is not listed here, so we assume she died before 1860.  The "Not Yet Named" 9 month old listed in 1860 is listed as male - and would be Henry F. Geise.  It would be interesting to know why he was not yet named at 9 months old.
