THE FAMILY OF PETER HAAG & BARBARA

Peter Haag & Barbara Vellmond

John Peter Haag & Eva Barbara Vollmond (sometimes spelled Barbary) were married on July 8, 1822 in Feuchtwangen, Ansbach, Bayern (Bavaria) and they had 5 children. Peter & Barbara emigrated to America with their 5 children, and they are on a passenger list for the ship Pauline that had sailed out of Bremen and arrived in New York on October 9, 1841. (Peter's obituary indicates that he emigrated to America in 1837, but this is an error.) The family first settled in Little Falls, NY, where they linked up with fellow Bavarian emigrees George Foust & John Hem who had emigrated to America in 1840. (George Foust later married their daughter Margaret in 1844) They moved with a group of about 12 of these Bavarian emigrees from New York to Illinois by late 1843 or early 1844. There is an 1845 land patent for John Haag in Kendall Co., IL and an 1847 land patent for Godfrey Haag in Kankakee Co., IL (not sure who Godfrey is.) Peter & Barbara's daughter Margaret Foust had a child born in Illinois in 1846; also their son John was married in 1848 & another son Leonard was married in 1849, both in Kendall Co., IL. Peter & Barbara are listed on the 1850 census of Oswego, Kendall Co., IL living with Leonard and by John, and there was a land patent issued to Peter Haag of Grundy Co., IL in 1851. A book by John Hafenrichter suggests that Peter & Barbara separated in 1851 when Peter moved to Grundy County, but they are both listed on the 1860 census Goodfarms, Grundy Co., IL living with son George and next to the family of married daughter Mary Schrotberger. Peter is listed as being a farmer on US census records, but he had been a master weaver in Bavaria. Peter Haag died March 25, 1862 in Mazon, Grundy Co., IL. He is buried in the Goodfarm Cemetery, Dwight Co., IL. Barbara moved to Kendall County Illinois to live with the family of her married daughter Margaret Foust. She is listed with them on the 1870 & 1880 censuses of Oswego, Kendall Co., IL. She was age 84 on the 1880 census. Barbara died on April 25, 1882 in Oswego, Kendall Co., IL. She is buried in the Oswego Prairie Evergreen Cemetery, Roth Road, Oswego Township, Kendall Co., IL.

Margaret Haag

Eva Margarette Haag was born on September 8, 1824 in Bavaria. She came to America with her parents when she was age 17, in October 1841 on the ship Pauline. The family settled in Little Falls, NY for a few years, but moved from New York to Illinois in late 1843 or early 1844, and I assume Margaret came with them. Margaret married George Foust on December 15, 1844, probably in Illinois, although I have not found them on the Illinois marriage index at this time. George was a fellow Bavarian emigree, who had come to America in 1840 and had known the family in New York. George & Margaret had 8 children. According to birth places of their children they were in Illinois by 1846. George & Margaret had 8 children. The family is listed on the 1850, 1860, & 1870 censuses of Oswego, Kendall Co., IL. In 1870 Margaret's mother Barbara is living with them. George died on March 21, 1878, probably in Oswego. Margaret and her mother Barbara are both living in the household of Margaret's son Peter Foust on the 1880 census of Oswego, Kendall Co., IL. Margaret Haag Foust died on August 1, 1898, probably in Oswego, Kendall Co., IL.
