He was born in Nassau-Saar-brucken, in Dillendorf,Germany, Aug. 6, 1733. He left Germany May 11, 1754, and arrived in Pennsylvania October 1, of the same year. Lived several years in Lancaster Co., PA. After 1783 he moved his family to Frederick, MD.

John Nicholas Hauer (1733-1799) who emigrated in 1754 from Diedendorf, northern Alsace. Nicholas' father was Otto Hauer, son of Peter Hauer and wife Catherine (Guth).

Nicholas Hauer was married to Catherine. Their daughter Cath. Hauer was baptized 17 Nov 1760, at the First Reformed Church, Lancaster, Lancaster, PA.

In 1765, Mary Elizabeth Hauer, was baptized on the 24 Mar 1765 at the same place as her older brother. Her birthdate was given as 6 Mar, 1765.

The early Lutheran Church at Lancaster, PA, records that the fourth child of John Nicholas and wife Catherine was Barbara, born Dec. 3, 1766 and baptized 14 Dec 1766. The family moved to Frederick where Barbara was confirmed in the Reformed Church. Barbara married much older John Casper Fritchie (c. 1780-1849). (I don't understand these dates, must be an error, or else her birthdate is, however, she was said to have been 'old' when the flag incident took place). Barbara Fritchie died on Dec. 18, 1862 according to her monument in Mt. Olivet Cemetery."

On 23 of Apr 1775, Nicolaus Hauer and wife Catharina held the baptism of their son Johannes Hauer in Frederick, Maryland.
