My great grandfather was a Peter Haas who emigated to Philadelphia - no date - married and had children Annie, Jacob (who remained in Germany),k Mary, Samuel, Margrett & George. George married Mary Amer and they had children William, Annarose & Charlotte. William was my grandfather and married Dorcas J. Mingin and had children Madalyn J. and George F. My grandmother, Dorcas, kept sketchy records which have not been much help in finding information. Peter is said to have had a saloon in Philadelphia. My grandfather, William, worked for Dobson's Mills in Falls of Schuylkill. 1870 Census Philadelphia showed George & Mary living with two children with McNulty and Felton families. My father George Felton Haas was named for Anthony Felton. This census showed George, my great grandfather born in Bavaria. I was told by my grandmother that our Haas family was originally Catholic. If any of this sounds familiar to you please let me know.
