Much of the above information is from an old document entitled "Haupt Family Record Book" (18 pages) which was located by Don Hayworth that appears to have been recorded prior to 1850.  It's last entry of any kind (birth, death, marriage, etc.) was in the year 1857.  It has been passed down through the generations.  This same document shows that John Haupt was from Wolfhagen, Hessen - Kassel.  Because of the detail of the children who died young, I have to assume this record is authentic and was recorded by an immediate member of the John Haupt Family.  It further shows that John Henry Haupt and Henry Haupt, both of Savannah, were indeed brothers.

John Haupt was employed as a Baker.  We learn this primarily from his estate papers (Apr. 7, 1804) when many items used in the trade were sold.  The value of his estate was $130.68.  Since his death was untimely at age 40, there was no will.  His widow and her new husband (Thomas Dowell) were the administrators of his estate sale.  John Haupt must have been fairly well educated because one of the items sold was an 8 volume set of books on Roman History.  The home John and his wife resided in (at least from Nov. 8, 1793) was inherited from her father (George Bollinger).  This home consisted of "a good dwelling house, kitchen, bakehouse and oven, and a good well of water".  John Haupt became a citizen February 19, 1785.
The birth location of John Haupt (b. 1754) was Wolfhagen, Hessen-Kassel.  Wolfhagen is located just west of the city of Kassel, Germany. We learn Johannes' birthplace from two sources.  The first is the above mentioned document found by Don Hayworth.  The second is from Hetrina's List of Hessian Soldiers (Vol. III and IV entry # 7012).  Hetrina's List shows a Johannes Haupt being born in Wolfhagen but has the birth year as 1755/56.  He entered service in 1776. Hetrina's List further indicates that this Johannes Haupt remained in Europe due to illness (category of presentation code 18).  He was a private in the Rall Regiment.  It should also be noted here that if the category of presentation was code 16, it would have meant "separated in America". It certainly appears that Johannes eventually got well and made it to America.  He may have served with the Hessian Troops employed by the British forces and eventually stationed at St. Augustine, East Florida.  See more below.  Rall's Regt.  would arrive in NY - Summer 1776.

There were German soldiers who were serving with the 3rd and 4th Battalions of the British 60th Regiment (Royal Americans) aka Regiment of Foot.  Some of these were recruited from Germans in America and some of these were recruited from Germans in Hessen.  These soldiers are not considered as members of the Hessian Auxilliary Units.  Some of these German soldiers of the British 60th, arrived in St. Augustine, FL on March 26, 1777.  Johannes Haupt may not have been able to travel with his Hessian Unit - Rall's Grenadiers (per Hetrina) but when healthy found another way to serve.  It is very plausible to assume that "remained in Europe due to illness" may mean remained in Great Britain due to illness.  While there, he simply joined with the British 60th and sailed about six months later perhaps with the intent to find his old unit.

According to cemetery records, Henry Haupt (b. 1787) is buried in plot 166 and John Henry Haupt (b. 1780) is buried in plot 165 in Laurel Grove Cemetery.  Henry Haupt's (b. 1787) wife, Frances Haupt is buried in plot 1066 in a different area of the cemetery with her son William Lafayette Haupt, his wives and son. 

John Henry Haupt (b. 1780) and his brother George (b. 1782) were born in St. Augustine, East Florida.  The family would move to Savannah, the birth place of their mother around 1783/84. 

St. Augustine is the site of a massive stone fortress then occupied by British troops.  "
Castillo De San Marcos"  was formerly Spanish, but given to the British (1763) (1st Treaty of Paris which ended the Seven Years War) in exchange for Havana, Cuba and the Philippines which the British had captured.  The Castillo was re-named Fort St. Mark.  When Florida was returned to the Spanish as a result of the 2nd Treaty of Paris July 12, 1784, the British left.  Some of the Germans (Haupt) with them likely remained in the area.  The original name of the fort was returned.  St. Augustine, FL was a garrison town.  Soldiers lived in the homes of local families.  They reported to the fort for military training, meals, guard duty, etc.

George Haupt (b. 1782), moved with wife to Mobile, Alabama in 1806.

Special Thanks to Maureen Haupt McCarthy of California for forwarding the Don Hayworth document find to me in February 2003.  It resolved this Haupt line.

Special Thanks to Linda Haupt King of Macon, GA for getting me started on this line back in July of 1993.

John Henry Haupt's family vault in Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia.  It is located at plot #165.  The grave marker on the front left corner (of the photo) and within the black fence is for John Henry Haupt's parents, John Haupt (b. 1754 d. 1794) and his wife Elizabeth (Bollinger) Haupt.  The family vault was recently restored to what you see above.

John Haupt and his wife Elizabeth (Bollinger) Haupt were originally buried in the "old cemetery" or Colonial Cemetery located at Oglethorpe and Abercorn St.  They were moved to the location of the family vault on May 3, 1857.
