Rudolphus Buche Greathouse was born 210 years ago – August 21, 1801 – to Harmon Greathouse, III, and Marcia “Mercy” Buche, probably in Virginia.  The couple moved to Nelson County, Kentucky, by 1792, where their children were born.  Rudolphus Buche Greathouse married Susanna Rebecca Lewis, daughter of John Lewis and Hannah Eskridge Lewis, December 15, 1825.  I do not have information about children.

  1. Just curious: why do you say that Rudolphus was born in Virginia in 1801 if his parents had moved to Nelson County, KY, in 1792? Or do you mean that Harmon and Mercy were married in Virginia?
