Millhousen, Indiana, is located in Marion Township, Decatur County, adjacent to Ripley County, and near Jennings and Franklin counties. In 1838 Maximillian Schneider, a German immigrant living in Cincinnati, entered land in Decatur County and proceeded to bring approximately twenty families and friends to settle there. One of the group's first priorities was to build a church in 1840 which became the center of the community. The town of Millhousen was platted in 1858. Here in the hills of Decatur County the German immigrants seemed to be able to perpetuate their language, religion, and culture. In 1859 Father Januaris Weisenberger was sent to serve the church. In 1860 the assistant United States Marshal assigned to take the census for this southern part of Decatur County was William M. English, age thirty five, born in Indiana. According to the census he was living with a female. Eleanor English, age 66, born in Virginia, who could possibly be his mother. It is assumed that English could not speak German, probably could not understand English when spoken with a German accent, and could not or would not spell German names. During the transcription of the 1860 federal census, as a part of the 1860 Census Project of the Indiana Historical Society, the transcribers were surprised to find few German names entered for the area around Millhousen. An ink blot was found to cover the first part of the surname of the priest who was improperly listed as a female. His given name was Januaris, the last part of his surname was "burger." The transcriber was curious about the first part of his surname. A history of Millhousen,1 written in 1934 to celebrate the centennial of the village, yielded the correct surname of the priest as "Weisenburger." The booklet gave the following information about the priest: "in 1860. Father Weisenburger listed the Parish members." The booklet then proceeded to give a transcription of the list, providing a second census of the area! The printed list was compared with the federal census with interest. It was then discovered that the priest's original handwritten list, in Latin, was available at the church. Rita Kneuven, pastoral assistant of the parish, kindly allowed the 1860 census transcribers to exam the original document. Not all persons in the township were listed, only those who were members of Father Weisenburger's parish. Some of the members lived in other counties, namely, Ripley. Franklin, and Jennings.
A comparison of the two censuses is given below. Father Weisenburger's census is listed on the left with information concerning the same families on the federal i ensuson the right. Some families were not found on the federal census. Obviously some births were added to the priests list after I860. The priest's Original his was in alphabetical order by first name of the head of household
