This 'Huthsteiner Genealogy' site is dedicated to my father, Carl Jay Huthsteiner, who was passionate in his
interest in family history. He dedicated the latter years of his life
to Huthsteiner family
genealogy by collecting information from public records,
saving personal letters and photos, and documenting phone calls and visits to
distant relatives that he located through his research.
After my father passed away in 1999, I (Ted
his family research. When I received an inquiry about Huthsteiners in
another part of the country and whether or not I might be related, I was
inspired to review my father's records, organize the information for
easier comprehension, and share it with relatives.
Thanks to major contributions from other genealogy
researchers, especially Josef Hutstein (hutstein.com),
Huthsteiner ancestry has been traced back as far as 1600. Also, thanks to many US and European
contributors, Knauth ancestry has been traced back as far as
Migration of Huthsteiners from
Prussia (Germany) to USA
Friedrich Eduard Huthsteiner migrated with his family from Germany
to the US around 1847 and located to Cincinnati, OH. Years later,
one of his many sons, Gustave Jacob Huthsteiner (my great
grandfather) moved to Tell City, Indiana, where he married Pauline
Carolyn Weber. After Pauline's death, Gustave had a 2nd marriage to
Louisa Ludwig (my great grandmother) and had 5 more children. After
Gustave died, his son, Robert, moved his step-mother, Louisa and her
children to Schenectady, NY, where some of Robert's brothers had
moved for employment opportunities with General Electric and
American Automotive. Schenectady also offered a good college for the
boys and a private school for Helen. This is how the Louisa Ludwig
Huthsteiner side of the family became Easterners in NY.
Respect for Privacy
This is a benevolent venture on my part and
I am acutely aware and respectful of issues and concerns regarding privacy
of information available through the internet. Therefore information
regarding living relatives is limited to first and last names (No birth
dates or contact info, etc.). Relatives who wish to contact living relatives might
do so via social media sites.
