Children of #8: Nicholas (b. 1788 d. 1867), Johann Heinrich (b. 1785 d. 1848), George (b. 1787), Elizabeth (b. 1795), Ann Maria (b. 1794 d. 1851), Johann Jacob (b. 1792 d. 1874), Samuel (b. 1797), Margaretha (b. 1800), Isack (b. 1802).

Children of #9:  John (b. 1795), Maria Catherina (b. 1797), Elizabetha (b. 1800 d. 1821), George (b. 1802 d. after Aug. 1870), Samuel (b. 1804 d. 1882), David (b. 1806, d. 1889), Sebastian (b. 1808 d. 1873), Mary Polly (b. 1810 d. 1887), Henry (b. 1812 d. 1897), Jacob (b. 1815 d. 1883).
Nicholas Haupt (b. 1725) was a 1st cousin to the 3 Haupt brothers whom also emigrated from Windesheim.  This Nicholas was a son of Johann Nicholas Haupt (b. 1695) and Anna Elizabeth (Geiss) Haupt (b. 1695).  He is believed to be the Nickel Haubt on the Edinburgh in 1754.  He had to have made a return trip to Windesheim as he was to have additional children there.  He would later return to the Philadelphia area abt. 1764 and settle in the Nockamixon Township area of Bucks County, PA.  Nicholas' brother Johannes (b. 1734) also emigrated and initially settled in the Nockamixon Township area of Bucks Co., PA.

Michael Haupt (b. abt. 1750) is believed to be the Michael Haup who was a prisoner on the British prison ship "The Old Jersey".  He was likely taken prisoner after June 3, 1781.  No other records exist for this Michael Haupt.

Upon the death of Nicholas' son Philipp in 1768, it was recorded in the church records at Keller's Church that Philipp was born in Windesheim.  This "needle in the haystack" find by family researcher (and Haupt descendant) Brent Glad (of South Jordan, Utah) led him to the discovery of the Haupt homeland (early 1980's).  Brent Glad did not realize until 1993 that other Haupts from Windesheim also arrived in Philadelphia.  It was my communications with him at this time that this realization took place. Research on this line proved valuable for many Haupt descendants.

Nicholas' son George migrated to Lower Augusta Township, Northumberland County, PA.  George and his wife Anna Margaretha (Overpeck) Haupt are buried in the cemetery at
Zion Lutheran Church in Augustaville, PA.
Nicholas Houb appeared in Annapolis Court on Sept. 29, 1762 to take the Oath of Adjuration (see Colonial Maryland Naturalizations by Jeffrey and Florence Wyand).  This perhaps is  Nicholas Haupt (b. 1709). Nicholas Haupt (b. 1725) appears to be back in Windesheim.  Or... Nicholas (b. 1725) may have returned to the States and his pregnant wife remained behind to travel later after birth of son Nicholas - Nov. 5, 1762.  This is a possibility.  She may have returned with Samuel Haupt and family in 1764.
