|It's All in the Family|
|Which Haupt line involved a grand-daughter of a Haupt immigrant marrying a grandson of a Haupt immigrant?
Anna Margaretta Wiall (b. 1778) was the grand-daughter of Johann Nicholas Haupt (b. 1725 in Windesheim). She first married Andrew Snyder. He died at a relatively young age and she then married Jacob Haupt (b. 1776) on May 5, 1816. Jacob was the grandson of J. H. Sebastian Haupt (b. 1715 in Windesheim). The two immigrants were 1st cousins. Nicholas Haupt and Sebastian's son Henry Haupt would settle in the Nockamixon Twp. / Durham Twp. part of Bucks County, PA.
The first child of the above union was none other than Herman Haupt (b. 1817).
Another interesting note:
Anna Margaretta was also the interest of Jacob's brother Sebastian Haupt (b. 1781). She obviously favored Jacob which may have contributed to Sebastian's move to Alabama. Still the two families would remain friendly and, as letters would indicate, Margaretta and Sebastian would remain admirers from afar.
