Surname Sunday | HAU

My mother’s surname is Hau. Wilhelm Hau came to America from Prussia, probably in the 1860’s. He settled in Sheboygan County, WI as a farmer. He married Kathrine Tuepper in 1869. They had nine children together. Wilhelm died in 1884 at the age of 41. One of their sons, John, is my great grandfather. He, together with his sons Raymond and Clarence, owned and operated Hau’s Lion Cafeteria in Fond du Lac, Fond du Lac Co., WI.
