Larry's Family

Lawrenceburg Pictures
Feldhaus Family of Lawrenceburg TN eBook

Welcome graphic

My name is Lawrence Bernard Feldhaus, Jr.  I go by the name Larry Feldhaus.  My parents spent most of their lives in Lawrenceburg Tennessee, but their ancestors came to this country from Germany, Scotland, and elsewhere. Now they are both deceased and their children are scattered around the country. Below are pictures of my parents' parents, none of whom were born in Lawrenceburg, but all of whom died there after spending most of their life in the community.
I've also included pictures of my grandparent's ancestors that I have in my possession.  As you can see, I don't have pictures of many of their ancestors and would appreciate receiving pictures of any of them.

Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what I've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart.

I have created several separate web sites to make it easier for those who may be interested in a family group, but not in another part of the family.

I started collecting this information in October of 2006 in response to a request from my brother's daughter, Pam Smith, for information about the family.

Most of this information was obtained from talking to living relatives, reviewing my files, and from researching public records. In the course of doing this research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought possible!

This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.

I've had lots of help putting together the information on these web pages and have tried to give credit to the persons supplying the information. If I have failed to give credit I apologize. I know how hard many have worked to gather the information contained on these web pages.
