My wife's line were cousins to your line. They came to Berrien County, Michigan from Russia in 1904. Several members of this Hauch family settled here including a sister of your Herman, Louise (Hauch) Strunk. I will send you a descendant chart that will explain the connetion better. I am still trying to locate the origins of the original Hauch in Volhynia, Russia, who was named Christian Hauch back in Germany. They were germans who were living in Russia, not Russian.
