  of 787

Chemung Co., NY

Henry Haupt (b. 1837) and his wife Lucretia settled in Elmira, NY. Both were from Saxony-Weimar. Their children were: Charlie A. (b. 1861), Katie (b. 1866), Ida (b. 1873), and Minnie (b. 1878).

Andrew Haupt (b. 1815) and wife Catherine (b. 1820) were residing in Elmira, NY. Bothe were from Saxony. Children at home with them were: Mary (b. 1860) and Willie (b. 1865).

Dutchess Co., NY (and Ulster Co., NY area)

Haupts that have a very old connection to this immediate area are most likely descendants of Philipp Haupt and his wives Anna Catharina Dresden (Dorsch) and later Gertraud (_____) Haupt (m. 1714). Philipp Haupt was born abt. 1660 Fleisbach, Hessen. He was a son of Heinrich Haupt (b. 1630) and Anna Catharina (Enders) Haupt. Philipp Haupt arrived in New York in 1709 and was one of the Palatines to settle in the Rhinebeck area of Dutchess Co., NY on the Hudson River.

Philipp and Anna Catharina (Dorsch) Haupt had the following children: Daughter (b. Feb. 1685 in Horbach, Hessen), Johann Jost (b. Oct. 1688), Anna Margaretha (b. Nov. 1692), Hermannus (b. Apr. 1694), and Anna Catharina (b. Sept. 1695).

Philipp Haupt are Gertraut (_____) Haupt (m. 1714 in Dutchess Co., NY) had the following children: Catharina (b. Feb. 1715) and Jan (b. d.).

Jan Haupt would marry Elizabeth Kaasby. The name seems to have become Hapt at this point. Jan Hapt and Elizabeth would have the following children: Elizabeth, Jacobus, and Zara. All three were baptized on May 23, 1742 at Rhinebeck Reformed Church, Dutchess Co., NY.

Unfortunately, this is all I know of this line. I have been unable to find other descendants. The information above is from The Palatine Families of New York - 1710, by Henry Z. Jones, Jr.

Erie Co., NY (and Niagara Co., NY area)

Jacob Houpt (b. 1851 in PA) married Sarah Hadaman (b. 1859 in NY) in Buffalo, NY on Sept. 27, 1875. Jacob was a son of Robert Houpt and his wife Mary Ann (Anderson) Houpt.

He received his law degree from the University of Heidelberg and spent 25 years as the police chief in Bad Homburg. The couple emigrated in 1857. They first settled for a short while in Erie, PA before relocating to Buffalo, NY. This line seems to descend from the large Haupt clan in Wetzlar, Hessen that dates back to 1520.

A second Friedrich Haupt also settled in Buffalo, NY. This Friedrich emmigrated in 1881 from Frankfurt an der Oder, Brandenburg. He married Emma Schenkelburger of Buffalo. Friedrich and Emma's children were Charles Ferdinand, Ellis, and Charlotte.
