Descendants of George Hahn




Generation No. 1


      1. George1 Hahn was born January 15, 1815 in Prussia, Germany, and died December 28, 1872 in German Township, Keokuk County, Iowa. He married (1) Barbara Unknown Abt. 1838. She was born Abt. 1817 in Prussia, Germany, and died Abt. 1857 in Keokuk County, Iowa. He married (2) Anna Maria Greiner November 1, 1857 in Sigourney, Iowa, daughter of Frederick Greiner and Anna Lang. She was born May 22, 1833 in Vinningen, Bavaria, Germany, and died January 29, 1923 in Wright County, Dayton Township, Iowa.

Notes for George Hahn:
Believed to be buried in Baden Cemetery, southwest of Harper, Iowa. Located south of Harper to Highway 92, west .5 of a mile, north .25 of a mile - or from Sigourney east on Highway 92, 7 miles, north .25 of a mile. German Catholic families from Baden, Germany were buried in the cemetery. No know plot remains. Although, I suspect that George Hahn was not Catholic, but was Evangelical or Lutheran. Two of his sons from his first marriage, George and Valentine, have birth and death records of their children at the German Evangelical (Lutheran) Church, now known as the Sunny Ridge Church.

Trish Wrote;
George Hahn was married to a Barbara Hahn when their family moved
to Keokuk County around 1856. George Hahn was born in Germany in 1815,
but four of his five children were born in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
His oldest son George Henry Hahn was born in 1839. The other children
were Louisa Hahn Bender, Valentine Hahn, Joseph Hahn, and Caroline Hahn
Mohme. Caroline was born in Louisville, Kentucky. Barbara Hahn died
shortly after arriving in Iowa.

A year later, in 1857, George Hahn married Anna Maria Greiner (her
parents were Frederick and Anna Lang Greiner) and they had eight
children: Frederich, Sebastian, Theresa (my great-grandmother), Henry,
Frank, Louis, and O'Tilda (Tillie). They also had another son, George,
who died at the age of eight. When they married, George Hahn was 45 and
Anna Maria was 23! He died in 1872, leaving her with very young
children. I've been able to piece together enough information from
probate records to know that there was a rift between the two families
over George Hahn's estate. Anna Maria bought a 40 acre farm in
Lancaster township, south of the Doggett Cemetery. In 1890 she moved
with the family to Wright County, except for Fred Hahn who stayed on the
farm in Keokuk County.

Obituary, Wright County Monitor, February 7, 1923:

      Anna Mary Greiner was born in Germany May 22, 1833, and died January 29, 1923, at the age of eighty-nine years, eight months, and seven days. Her last illness, paralysis, was of short duration lasting only a period of seven weeks.
      While a young girl, she emigrated with her parents to America. On November 1, 1857, she was united in marriage with George Hahn, who preceded here in death by fifty years. She resided near Sigourney, Iowa, until 1889 when with her family she moved to Wright County and located on a farm south of Clarion where she lived at the time of her death.
      Mrs. Hahn was the mother of nine children, two of whom died in infancy and a daughter Mrs. Mets Deimerly passed away in 1920. Those surviving are Fredrick of Sigourney, Frank of Rosberg, Ore., Sebastian, Henry, Lewis, and Mrs. Tillie Russell, all of Clarion. There are fourteen grandchildren, one of whom, Bertha, has been the mainstay and helper in the last days of her grandmother's infirmity. She also had fifteen great grandchildren. She was one of a family of six, only one sister, Mrs. Kate Keifer of Tallyrand surviving.
      She was a devout Catholic and was faithful to her convictions. Hers was a quiet modest life devoted to her home and family. She was every ready to do a kind deed and counted her friends by the score.
      Funeral services were held in the St. John's Church Wednesday morning. Internment was made in the Catholic cemetery.

Thank You, Wright County Monitor:     
      We wish to thank our neighbors and friends for the kindnesses and sympathy shown to us and also for the many beautiful flowers sent during the illness and death of our beloved mother. Mrs. Mike Russell, Bertha Hahn, Sebastian Hahn, Lewis Hahn, Henry Hahn.
