Anna’s father, John Paul Hasenbeck, was one of seven children.  He was born in Strümp, a district of Meerbusch, Nordrhein-Westfalen to Johan Joseph Hasenbeck and Maria Margaretha Kreutz.  He immigrated sometime in or before 1850 to Bexar County, Texas, United States.

Some of his siblings joined him in the U.S., including two brothers Carl “Charles” Theodore and Hermann Joseph, and one sister Anna Elizabeth who married John Demmer in Lank-Latum, Rhineland prior to their immigration.  The eldest child, Maria Josepha married Johann Heinrich Weyers on November 4, 1847 at the same location in Germany, there is a record for one son born to their marriage, but there is no record of her possible immigration to the U.S.

Hermann Joseph immigrated in 1852, his older brother Carl had already been living in the U.S. for two years.  At least until 1861, Carl and Hermann were living together, along with Hermann’s wife Maria Anna Rittimann, who was from Alsace, France, and Hermann and Maria’s infant daughter Anna.  Though their daughter would not survive childhood, they would go on to have seven more children.

At the start of the Civil War in 1861, Carl, then 40 years old, joined the Confederacy and served in the Seventh Cavalry (Seventh Mounted Volunteers; Third Regiment, Sibley’s Brigade).  By the end of the war, he married Gertrude Faust, a widow with three children, on April 5, 1865.  Together they would not have any additional children.

The fate of the two youngest siblings of John Paul Hasenbeck, named Margaretha and Paul Peter is unknown, they were born sometime around 1839 and 1843, respectively.  Of interest to note is that their mother Maria Margaretha died on July 12, 1844 in Strümp, Germany and there is no record that their father, Johan Joseph, remarried.  Some seven years later, he would attempt to emigrate from Germany.

He was supposed to immigrate to the United States in 1851, arriving in Galveston, Texas, to be with his children who were already living in the Bexar County region, but died in route and was buried at sea.  Though deceased, his passenger record was retained and archived in Passenger and Immigration Lists Index 1500 – 1900, source publication code 571.2, Gale I.D. 260163, Accession# 9998646108.  No passenger information could be found for any accompanying children.

According to his baptismal record, Johan Joseph was born on or before July 14, 1800 in Ratingen, Rhineland, Prussia to Adolph Hasenbeck and Gertrud Willems.  The family lived in what is now the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.  His baptismal record is archived in batch# C94269-1 of the Germany-VR system, with microfilm number 187200 and reference ID 2:NC9XLB (Germany, Births and Baptisms, 1558-1898).

His father, Adolph Hasenbeck, was born in Ratingen, Rhineland, Prussia to Johann Wilhelm Hasenbeck and Anna Maria Brockes/Bruecker.  They were married on February 3, 1771 at the St. Peter and Paul Catholic church in Ratingen, this marriage is archived in batch# M94269-1 of the Germany-VR system, with microfilm number 187200 and reference I.D. 2:P56J88 (Germany, Marriages, 1558-1929).  Johann Wilhelm Hasenbeck was the son of Joannes Henricus Wilhelm Hasenbeck and Maria Catharina Bovermans.

    *U.S. Federal Census data shows Leo moved to Milwaukee County, Wisconsin between 1920 and 1930, and was living with his brother Charles.  Second-hand information which I could not validate, suggested he later moved west to the state of Oregon.  There is a gravestone in Mount Calvary Cemetery in Portland, Oregon for a Leo H. Bauer (June 5, 1902 – March 12, 1970), but the listed obituary states he was born in Freeburg, Illinois.
    There’s a Leo John Bauer (August 22, 1901 – July 30, 1994) buried in Mount Jefferson Memorial Park cemetery in Madras, Oregon, but no information about his parents or his place of birth is given.  Seeing as he had moved to Wisconsin, I checked records there, but again could not find anything.
