I'm sorry, but about all the information I have is listed in my posting. Unfortunately, my great-grandfather died years before my father was born and my grandfather died years before I was born, so a lot of family history has been lost along the way. I do not know John Joseph Haupt's parents, but I do know the family spoke only German when they immigrated. I'm not sure I even know where to look for information about John's parents since I do not speak German and since the government of the Czech Republic has changed hands so many times. Any ideas?
To my knowledge, John was a farmer while living in Bohemia. He and Anna were devout Catholics (which I know was not uncommon in the Austrian Empire). According to oral family tradition, they immigrated to the US in 1899 and 1900 because of deteriorating conditions in the Austrian Empire. Let me know if any of this information helps or if there is any other information that I can try to find to help resolve this.
