John M. Hauser, a member of the Aladdin Soap Company, was born in Joliet, Ill., December 27, 1864. His father, Vincent Hauser, who for many years has been engaged in the jewelry and grocery business in that city, is a native of Speichingen, Wurtemberg, Germany. The mother of our subject, who bore the maiden name of Theresa Honer, was born in the same locality as was her husband. Among the early settlers of Joliet are numbered this worthy pair. The husband is still in business at that city, but his estimable wife was called to her spirit home January 20, 1890.

John M. Hauser is the fourth in order of birth in a family of five children, one son and four daughters. In the parochial schools of his native city, he acquired an education fitting him for the practical duties of life. After quitting school, he was employed four years in a planing-mill. For two years he served as a member of the Fire Department of Joliet.

Like his partner, Mr. Hauser was married at Rubicon, Dodge County, Wis. The lady of his choice, Miss Philomine Moser, is a native of that county. Their wedding occurred September 3, 1889. Both Mr. and Mrs. Hauser are members of the German Catholic Church. Mr. Hauser is also a member of St. Joseph's Entertaining Society. In 1891 the subject of this notice engaged in business with his present partner, C. A. Hahn. Both are wide-awake business men, and by their united efforts have worked up a good trade, having an output of about twenty thousand pounds of soap per week.
