HAAN, JOHN
John Haan, whose home and farm are in Riverside
Township, Lyon County, is still in his early manhood,
and his industry, economical habits and upright life,
are a credit to his race and blood. He was born
January 16, 1870, in Javerland, Germany, and the first
five years of his life were spent in his native land,
when his parents removed to this country, making
indeed a vast change in the lives of their posterity,
as well as greatly modifying their own condition.
Germany is a land of liberty and education and law,
but it has no such opportunity for ambitious manhood
as Lyon County has presented in the closing years of
the century.

The Haans crossed the ocean in a British liner, and
effected a location in Grundy County, Iowa, where
young John received considerable schooling in the
neighboring district school. After completing his
education he went to work on his father's farm, and
for two years was employed as a farm laborer. In 1891
he became engaged in farming for himself in Pleasant
Valley Township, Grundy County, and was married
February 24, 1892, to Miss Bessie, daughter of Hie and
Engel Rieman. He spent 1894 and 1895 farming in Butler
County, and in December, 1894, bought a tract of land
in Lyon County, described as follows: the north half
of the northeast quarter of section 21, and also the
north half of the northeast quarter of section 22,
range 45, township 100. In January, 1896, he came to
Lyon and settled on this land, and in August, 1898,
bought more land, as follows: the south half of the
northeast quarter of section 21, and the south half of
the northwest quarter of section 22, of the same range
and township. He is also the proprietor of a farm of
two hundred and forty acres in Noble County,
Minnesota, owning in all an amount of land that would
have made him an aristocrat in the old country, but
which here simply lifts him out of poverty, and gives
him an enduring competency.

To Mr. and Mrs. John Haan have come the following
children: Alfred, born January 13, 1893; John,
September 5, 1894; Henry, February; 20, 1896; Ella,
March 8, 1898; William McKinley, November 25, 1899;
Bertha, December 5, 1901; and an infant, born August
13, 1904. The father of John Haan was born October 12,
1825, in East Friesland, where he was reared to farm
life, and where he married Miss Ella Buus in 1858.
They had children as follows: Anna, who died when
twenty-six years old; Henrietta, who lived to be
nineteen years old; Lena; Hannah; Delia; John; Henry,
who died in 1875, while still an infant. The
grandfather of John Haan was born in Germany, and
served in the French Wars. He died in 1835. The
grandmother of John Haan died in 1875. She was born in
East Friesland, and her father also in East Friesland.
He was a farmer and coming to the United States in
1866, located in Illinois, later making a home in
Grundy County, Iowa.

Ella Buus, the mother of John Haan, was born in East
Friesland December 7, 1835, and died February 25,
1880.

Hie Rieman was always a farmer, born in East
Friesland, Germany, and came to the United states in
1868, and located in Illinois and married there; went
from there to Grundy County, stayed there ten years,
and then moved to Butler County, where he still lives
in his sixty-seventh year. His wife died June 30,
1904.

Moser and Grimm often appear as â€Å“Huguenotâ€Â names: French Protestants @ 16th-17th century. These tended to come from south and southwest France. (thanks Cousin M. Houck for the further info). The Moser name means â€Å“Meadow Dwellerâ€ÂÃ¢€Â¦farmer. There is a medieval coat of arms somewhere. Moser is the traditional spelling, with a lot of variationsâ€Â¦Musser, Mosier, Mosser. Going WAY back, the Mosers are probably descended from â€Å“â€Â¦German Teutonic tribes that overcame the Roman legions in about 375 A.D. and took control of most of Europeâ€Â¦Ã¢€Â Doesnâ€â„¢t sound like meadow-dwelling farmers to me, unless they needed a LOT of land! NOTE the name "Pfarrer"...may mean something to the effect of either "unknown" or "illegitimate"

Excerpted from "The Feucht Family Record" dated ABT 1968

Johann Feucht (born Sept. 14, 1845) was married to Jacobena Schambach (born Nov. 24, 1853) in the spring of 1876 at Finsteroth, Wurttemberg, Germany. They owned several acres of ground, a little here and there, near the village of Finsteroth, on which they raised wheat for flour, hay for cattle, potatoes, etc., and all the food needed to sustain their family. They also had an orchard which fruit was mostly used for their family. Some was dried for use in the winter. At first the farming was all done by hand, but later with horses especially for the plowing. Cows produced the dairy products for the family and later goats were used for milk too.

Johann bought fruit and wood from others and then with his horses drove to the big town of Heilbron to sell them at a stand that he had set up. While the horses were resting, he would sell his goods and then return home.

Eleven children were born to this union; the first two being a set of twin boys, of which the one died at birth. Of the other three sons and six daughters, one of each died before they reached one year of age. The other eight children, with the exception of Pauline and William who were just six and five when they came to America, all attended the little village Lutheran school in Finsteroth. (Finsterrot)

Jacobena was brought up Lutheran, then went to the Methodist church awhile, but still was not satisfied. A neighbor invited her to attend church with her once, which happened to be the Apostolic Christian Church. She felt that here was a faith that she had been looking for, and in 1894, she and her daughter Caroline, were taken up as members.

Jacobena had a cousin, George Schambach, living in Elgin, Illinois, and after some correspondence back and forth it was decided that one by one the children and then the folks would move to America where living conditions were better and where there was no military service for the boys.

So in May 1892, their oldest son Gottfried (14 years old) came over to America by himself. Two years later, in 1894, Rosena and Albert (ages 15 and 14) came over, followed by Carl and Frieda in May 1895 (then 14 and 11 years old).

In the spring of 1897, Father and Mother with their three last children, Caroline (14), Pauline (6) and William (5) packed up their belongings, said goodbye to their friends at Finsteroth, W^irttemberg, Germany, and headed for Antwerp, Belguin (a three days ride by train from Heilbron, Germany), where they boarded a ship called "Freesland .

They were on the ocean about 9 days and were often sick. When they finally landed in New York, they took a two days journey by train to Elgin, Illinois, where they were met by some of their family and the Geo. Schambachs.

Their son, Carl, was farming near Elgin at the time, so they moved in with him and were there for about seven years before moving to Stark, Illinois in 1904. They were near Stark for another four years, spending two years with Carl again (before he moved to Lester) and the other two years with their son, Fred. During the winter of 1906 and the spring of 1907, they, along with their daughter Caroline, made a visit to Germany.

In 1908, they moved to Iowa, living on a farm near Larchwood for about two years. In 1910 their daughter, Caroline, got married and they lived in with her and her husband until their deaths.

Johann passed away on March 27, 1926, and Jacobena, who had been in ill health for some time, passed away on June 9, 1933. Their final resting places are in the Apostolic Christian Church Cemetery south of Lester, Iowa.

From IAGenWeb Lyon County Genealogy

Carl Feucht was born April 10, 1881 in Wurttenberg, Germany. At the age of 14, he and his sister came to America because of better living conditions and no military service for young men.

Carl worked as a hired man in the Elgin, Illinois area. On September 22, 1904, he married Emma Marie Knobloch. Later that year, he moved to Stark, Illinois. He farmed for about a year and a half and on August 4, 1905, their first son, Ernst, was born.

In the spring of 1906, they moved to Iowa and rented a farm 3 miles south and a ½ mile west of Lester. Ben was born February 8, 1907, and due to complications from his childbirth, Emma passed away on February 15, 1907.

Carl remarried February 18, 1908, to Emmaâ€â„¢s sister Pauline. A third son, Emil, was born on November 4, 1908. At this time he decided to homestead here and purchased 160 acres of prairie land 1 mile west and 1 3/4 miles south of Lester. He hired Theodore Goldsmith to build their home and farm buildings. Mr. Goldsmith lived with Carl and Pauline during the week and was a skilled carpenter as the barn frame was built with wooden pegs. The barn was destroyed by a fire on September 16, 1988. Carl hauled some of the lumber with team and wagon from Lou Chamberlain Lumber of Lester.

By 1937 Carl owned and farmed a section of land. Over the years, they had horses, a few dairy cows, hogs, cattle, ducks, geese and chickens. Many times the chickens were dressed and sold in Sioux Falls to various eating places and sold to meat markets. The family butchered all of their own meat and this tradition is still carried on by some of the Feucht family. Carl enjoyed buying and selling horses to neighbors and horse buyers for use in the infantry during World War I.

Some of the things they did in the area were custom corn shelling, threshing, witching for water and doing errands for others when Carl went to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Pauline enjoyed gardening, flowers and baking. Her favorites were breads and apple kuchen. For relaxation she did crocheting and other handwork.

From http://www.rootsweb.com/~ialyon/bankingtwo.htm:
Temperatures were unseasonably cold the early months of 1907 and there was considerable fear that the crop could not be gotten into the ground soon enough. In April temperatures were dropping below freezing almost every night. Vegetables that had been planted were lying dormant. Fruits were damaged and early seeded cereals were in great danger. Some reseeding was being started.

A bad electrical storm hit the week of June 27 and many barns were struck, several destroyed. At the John Scherff farm the house and barn burned down as the result of lightning and five horses and a colt in the barn were destroyed.


John's name may have been Johann Jochim Heinrich Scharf, born in Mecklenberg to Friedrich Ludwig Scharf and Maria Dorothea Engel. The Friedrich listed as his brother may actually be his father in Wisconsin! Also possible is that he is the son of Friedrich Scherff and Maria Best of Plaggenburg Aurich, Hannover. Hannover is their likely birthplace according to most records.
