Peter Hauer and Martha Jane Neale: Their Family in the Census

Peter Hauer, born 16 July 1829 in Berdorf, Echternach, Luxembourg, was the fourth-born child of Clement Hauer and Maria Catharine Weins and their only male child to live to adulthood.


Peter was enumerated with his parents in the five Berdorf censuses taken between 1843 and 1851. He was not listed in the census taken 3 December 1852, nor any census after that. I believe, therefore, that he may be one and the same Peter Hauer who, at the age of 22, arrived in New York on 7 June 1852 aboard the ship Europa from Antwerp, a common port of departure for Luxembourg immigrants. It appears he was the only Hauer on board the ship. He was identified as German in the record, as Luxembourgers often were.

In the U.S., Peter made his home in Kentucky, where he married Martha Jane Neale. According to Kentucky Marriages, 1851-1900 (Dodd, Jordan, comp. Kentucky Marriages, 1851-1900 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2001.), Peter and Martha were married 3 July 1853, but if Martha's birthdate is correctly 28 July 1844, she would have been only nine years old at the time. I believe the correct year of their marriage was 1859, as calculated from information in the 1900 census, where they stated that they'd been married 41 years. In addition, the birth of their first child in 1860 lends support to the 1959 date.


The 1860 census was taken on June 22. Their baby James C.'s age was listed as 1/12. Various Ancestry family trees give his birthdate as June 20, 1860, and his middle name as Clemmons. He was the first of eleven children. They lived with Martha's parents, James and Isabelle Ann (Adams) Neale.


By 1870, Peter and Martha had three more children, and the baby James was not listed. He may have died in infancy. It appears that Martha's father died also. The civil war took place in this time period, so his death may have been related to that. Ancestry was unable to provide death information for either James.


The 1880 census enumerates seven children with Peter and Martha, along with Martha's mother.


By 1900, during the course of her 41-year marriage, Martha had given birth to a total of 11 children, 9 of whom were still living. Her daughter Minnie, who had been married to Octavius Newton Banta, was widowed in 1899 and was enumerated with Peter and Martha. She had three children, but I can't tell you why they were not enumerated with her in this census. Although I searched, I did not find any of them listed elsewhere either.

The Find-A-Grave entry for Peter Hower gives the date of his death as 14 December 1908. He was interred at the Dutch Tract Cemetery in North Pleasureville, Henry County, Kentucky. I have no idea why his birthplace was said to be Lawrenceburg, Holland in the Find-A-Grave entry, as there doesn't appear to be any such place. This might have shaken my faith in the whole idea that this Peter Hower was, in fact, the son of Clement Hauer, but the 1910 census reassures me completely.


Although Peter is no longer listed, having died in 1908, there's a new resident in the home of Martha Hower. Peter Kapp is identified as her nephew, but in fact he was Peter's nephew from Luxembourg. Peter Kapp, born 11 July 1875 in Berdorf, was the son of Mathias Kapp and Barbara Hauer, Peter Hower's sister.

Martha died on 7 March 1913 and was buried at Dutch Tract Cemetery, as her husband was.

Anne Marie Hauer died 28 March 1877 in Berdorf.

Theodore Hauer's First Marriage

Theodore Hauer was thirty years old when he married his first wife, Catharina Thorn. Born 1 March 1809 in Bous, Remich, Luxembourg, Catharina was the daughter of Paul Thorn and Susanna Hartmann.


Catharina and Theodore were married in Bous on 23 December 1829.


Ten months later, on 24 October 1830, Catharina gave birth to their son Nicolas.


On 2 December 1831, when Nicolas was barely a year old, Catharina died.


A year later, Theodore married Anne Marie Beissel. It appears that Nicolas was raised in this family, as he appears with them in the 1843 and 1846 censuses. He is also named in the 1851 census, but it indicates he was in military service in Diekirch.


I searched the records of Diekirch, hoping to find a marriage record for Nicolas, but instead I found his death recorded on 10 November 1852.

Theodore Hauer: His Family in the Census

Theodore Hauer was the second child of Pierre Hauer and Anne Marie Christman. He and his family lived in Remich, Luxembourg, when the 1843 census was taken. They were enumerated in the city of Luxembourg in 1846. Theodore must still have been in Luxembourg when his wife and children were enumerated in Bech-Kleinmacher in 1847, but by 1849 he was living in Kleinmacher with them, and that became their permanent home.
