It is possible that Georg Haupt of Hesse-Cassel is descended from the Haupt line in nearby Wolfhagen, Hesse-Cassel.  See: 
Johannes Haupt of Wolfhagen.  Georg may be a son of either Johann Heinrich Haupt (b. 1756) or Conrad Haupt (b. 1760) in Wolfhagen.  Church records there would have to be consulted further to make this connection.
m. August 10, 1853 in Winesburg, OH
