Surname: Hauer

My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Hauer. Her great-grandfather was:
  • Pierre / Peter Hauer, of Echternach, Luxembourg, was born about 1769. He married Anne Marie Christman of Berdorf, Echternach, Luxembourg, probably about 1798. Together they had at least ten children. Peter died 26 August 1839 and Anne Marie died 29 March 1827, both in Berdorf. They were my fourth great-grandparents.
  • Theodore Hauer, born 29 September 1799 in Berdorf, Echternach, Luxembourg. His name was given in his son's marriage record. I don't believe Theodore ever came to the U.S. He married Anna Maria Beissel on 20 December 1832 in Bous, Remich, Luxembourg. They had 11 children. Theodore died 17 Apri 1860 and Anna Maria died 29 March 1867, both in Kleinmacher, Wellenstein, Remich, Luxembourg. They were my third great-grandparents.
  • Henry Joseph Hauer, born about 20 June 1838 in Bous, Remich, Luxembourg. He came to the U.S. as a young unmarried man. After serving during the Civil War, he married Theresa Wolfschlager on 29 March 1864 in Center Line, Michigan. They had six children. Joseph died on 6 June 1893 at age 56 and was buried at Mount Elliott Cemetery in Detroit four days later. Joseph was my great-great-grandfather.
  • Felix J. Hauer, born 5 January 1867 in Detroit, Michigan. He married Elizabeth Louise Schulte on 21 June 1893 in Detroit, where they made their home for the few years they had together before his death at age 30 on 19 May 1897. He too was buried at Mount Elliott Cemetery. Felix was my great-grandfather.
  • Evelyn Elvina Hauer, born 1 April 1894 in Detroit. She married Rosmer Pettis Kerr on 12 June 1916. She died in Warren, Michigan on 19 December 1988 at the age of 94.
