Surnames: Shaw Christoff Houser Guenther
Looking for information on my great-grandmother. I'm actually a little confused to who she is and I"m hoping someone can help.

My grandfather was Robert L Houser. DOB 17 July 1929, Portsmouth, Ohio. On Roberts birth certificate, his father is listed as Sylvester Houser, DOB 1901 in Wayne, WV. Sylvester's DOD was 1937 in Peebles, Ohio (son of Joseph and Elizabeth Houser). Roberts mother's full maiden name is listed on his birth certificate as Maud Christoff, born in Forestville, Ohio abt 1905-06. However, on every other legal document I've found, her full maiden name is listed as Maud Shaw. So I'm unsure if she is Maud Christoff or Maud Shaw. Perhaps she was previously married? I just don't know.

Sylvester and Maud had at least 4 sons: Russell 1925-2004, Forrest 1924-1952, George 1997-1926 and Robert 1929-2007. I believe they also had one other son, William, but I can't find any information on him.

Surnames: Shaw & Houser
I am not related, but did find on the 1930 Clark Co Ohio census: Lawrence Hauser 29 born West Virginia-West Virginia-West Virginia;wife Maud 24, born OH-OH-OH;sons Forrest,5,born Oh-W.Va-OH;Russell,4 born OH-W.VA-OH;George 2 born West Virginia-W VA-W VA; and Robert 8 months( born Sept 1929 OH).
Lawrence was married at age 22 & Maude was married at age 17. I am lookinto finding the parents of Maude. I do believe they are James S.Shaw born 9-22-1862 Brown CO OH,married 8-18-1904 Maggie Maud Kelcher. Maggie Maud was born in 1871 & died in 1913. I can forward the death cert for Maggie Maud if you want it. Sharon Karns
