How did you determine he was born in Austria? The 1807 census states he was born in Holstien. Holstein is a region in Germany There is no place in Austria now or in the 1860s that was called by this name.

However the other census records I find for him state he was born in Iowa.... and there is a place in Iowa called Holstein which was settled by Germans... and the other census records state his parents were from Germany. I see nothing in records which make any mention of Austria.
