From John Hafenrichter book:
1) John Peter Haag, ?/?/1794[0berhinterhof, Ansbach, Bavaria] - 3/25/1862[Mazon, il] / m. ( )[_.Bavaria] Eva Barbara Vellmond, 4/1 /1796[Steinbach, Ansbach, Bavaria] - 4/25/1882[0swego Township, Kendall County, IL] ,
John Peter's obituary cites 1837 as his year of emigration. But we know that at least one son remained in Bavaria in 1840. Perhaps John Peter had come on ahead; and later his wife and five children came on separately. John Peter had been a master weaver in Bavaria. In the U.S. the family settled initially in Little Falls, NY, an Erie Canal town. Here they linked up with fellow Bavarian emigres, John Hem and
George Faust who arrived in 1840. Not far behind came Margaret Barbara Burkhart in search of her future husband, John Hem. By late 1843 or early 1844 the group had grown to 12, and they decided to move west toward Chicago. Reputedly, stone cutting, John Hem's trade, was in demand in Montgomery, IL, where Gray's mill was taking shape. Once in the area, Haag, Hem, and Faust, all, took land patents on adjoining acreage that had just come on the market in Oswego Township, Kendall County, IL. Thus was the Oswego Prairie German Settlement born.
John Peter's family prospered. But for an unknown reason the family also suffered a split in 1851. John Peter moved to Grundy County, 40 miles to the south, taking with him his two younger children. His wife and three elder children remained in Kendall County. John Peter is buried in Goodfarm Cemetery, Dwight, IL; his wife, Eva Barbara, in Oswego Prairie Evergreen Cemetery, Roth Road, Oswego Township, Kendall County, IL
(Note from Kari - I do not think they separated - Peter & Barbara are listed together on the 1860 census of Goodfarm Twp., Grundy Co., IL. Peter died in Goodfarm in 1862 and is buried there. After his death, Barbara went to live with the family of her married daughter Margaret Faust in Oswego, Kendall Co., IL, and she is listed with them on the 1870 & 1880 censuses. She died in 1882 in Kendall County (20 years after her husband) and that is why she is buried there.)
