Fouts Genealogy - North Carolina

Genealogy > Carpenter

Welcome to my Fouts genealogy pages. This surname can also be spelled Fauts, Fautz, Pfauts, Pfautz, etc. I am interested in the Fouts families in North Carolina. My interest in other states is minimal, except for Pennsylvania and Maryland where the North Carolina Fouts' originated.

Fouts Family Pages - Each Fouts family has their own web page, complete with all documentation I've found so far.*  The link will take you to the surname index. Find the "Fouts" surname and click on it and an index of all individuals will be displayed. Or you can use the search engine (to the left) to find a specific family or person. *I've done very little work on this line, so the documentation might not all be listed.

Fouts DNA Project - Genetic evidence helps us where the paper trail ends and also helps to confirm what we know from paper records.

My Ancestry:

  1. Theobald Fouts (c1722-c1782) (a.k.a. David Fouts, or Dewald Fouts) was born in Germany or Switzerland (or some Germanic region) and came to Pennsylvania in 1738. He married Catrina Spengel (a.k.a. Catherine Ann Spengel) in 1743 in York Co., PA. They moved to North Carolina in the in the early 1760's settling in what is now Randolph County.
  2. John Leonard Fouts (c1755-c1799) and Catherine Shearer. John and wife moved from Randolph County to Rowan County for a few years, then to Wilkes (now Ashe) County where he died ca 1799. Catherine lived in Ashe until the 1830's when she moved with family members to Macon County, North Carolina. John is a proven son of David.
  3. Jacob Fouts (c1786-1852) and Mary Margaret Baker. Jacob was born in Rowan Co., NC and spent many years in Ashe County. In the 1830's he moved his family to Macon Co., NC. I have no direct or primary evidence proving that Jacob is a son of John Leonard Fouts, but it seems likely.
  4. Rebecca Fouts (1822-1900/10) and Michael J. Waters. Rebecca was born in Ashe County and lived most of her life in Macon County. Her husband died only eight years after they married. She later married Reuben Evans and had more children with him. I come from the first marriage to Michael J. Waters.
