Hauser Family

First Generation

Martin Hauser was born in 1696 in Reichenweier, Alsace, and married Margaretha Schaefer (b. 1702) of Lampertsloch in Woerth Lutheran church in 1722. They immigrated in 1727 on the Molly with their infant son, who died on the voyage. Settling initially in PA, then MD, they moved to NC in 1753. Martin died in 1761, Margaretha in 1775. Several generations further back are known; contact Elizabeth Harris for more information.

Michael Hauser House (son of Martin)

This two-story house was built in the late 1700s or early 1800s and remodeled around 1850. It appears Greek Revival in style with flush-sheathed pedimented gable ends and corner blocks in the interior door surrounds.
