Birth: Nov. 1808 in Diekirch, Luxembourg

My maternal 3rd. great Luxembourgian grandfather. A Retired Farmer. Catholic.

Father of Mary Haupert, my 2nd. great Luxembourgian grandmother. Total number of children unknown.

I believe that his wife, my 3rd. great grandmother, died  before 1854 when he emigrated to America. Her name is unknown. The emigration records state that he and his daughter, Mary Haupert emigrated in 1854 together to New York from Luxembourg, then on to Caledonia, Houston, Minnesota by covered wagon.

  1. Hello family! My name is Eleanor Haupert, and I live in Galveston, Texas. I am the daughter of John Francis Haupert from Dubuque, Iowa, born in 1951. His father was John Haupert, who was married to Everetta Brandenburg. Very interesting to stumble upon this page! =)

  2. Dear Eleanor,
    I am getting absent minded. I don’t know if I answered your post or not. I have a brother who lives in Galveston. We are some kind of cousins, I bet.
    God bless you, Sally
