My name is Melodie(Rensehausen)Clarke. My great,
great grandfather name was William Rensehausen. He
was married to Louisa Boleman. His children were
Augusta, William, Jr., Fred, Henry, Louisa, Esther,
Hannah, John, and Susan.
He came to the US in the early to mid 1800's
(1830-1860's). He was a stone mason and worked on the
Boston/Albany railroad laying the culvert work. He
settled in Copake, NY. My grandfather always said our
name was originally spelled Renziehausen. There are
many variations that I have come upon. Two of the
most popular are Rensehauser and Renchausen.
The family went from Copake to Pittsfield, Ma and
Pittsburgh, PA. I am looking for any information that
might be available on them. Any information and help
would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
