Georg 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.
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 Huthsteiner) inherited 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 me to review my father’s records, organize the information for easier comprehension, and share it with relatives.
