Descendants of Johann Georg Haugen

Generation No. 2

2. FREDERICK (HAUG)2 HOUCK, SR. (JOHANN GEORG1 HAUGEN) was born November 12, 1711 in (probably) Stetten, Germany, and died April 4, 1795 in Coventry, Chester, PA. He married ANNA SARA NEGLE June 24, 1743 in Beutelsbach, Germany, daughter of DANIEL NEGLE and CHRISTINA BEERWARTHEN. She was born September 1, 1715 in Beutelsbach, Germany, and died Aft. 1795.

Notes for F
Georg Friedrich Haug's birth record was not listed in the records of Beutelsbach. Since his Father was from Stetten, Georg Friedrich was most likely born in Stetten. (Note: Beutelsbach and Stetten are adjacent to each other, a short distance east of Stuttgart, Germany.)


FHL Film No. 1184738: He attended school and knows how to write and read. He worked for 4 years in Stetten, then he went to Stuttgart and worked for two years. He went back home (Beutelsbach) for a while and came back (to Stuttgart) and worked for 7 years. He left with his wife and children on 4 May 1750 to "Pensylvanicn".
