Clowser Homestead

from the Winchester Star

This home is where Henry Clowser lived with his family, until their family was killed by Shawnee Indians. Young Henry Clowser survived, as well as his two sisters, who had been abducted by the Shawnee.

Marion Clowser is a descendant and so am I.

Henry Clowser's guardian was Casper Larrick, an immigrant from Alsace-Lorraine. The Clowsers came from Germany. I am wondering if they came on the same ship, from the same town, the same church, or were related in some way or if they were just chance neighbors, in the military together, or in some other way knew each other.

My mother's father, William James Lockhart, Sr.'s grandmother was Mary Jane Foreman, whose grandfather was the young Henry Clowser. He is my grandfather's grandmother's grandfather. Which makes him my 4th great-grandfather, I believe, and the elder Henry Clowser (or Heinrich Clauser) and his wife Anna Maria Arma, my 5th great-grandparents.
