1850 George was a farmer in Jefferson Township, Owen County, Indiana. He had a respectable size of property which was valued at $4,000. His household included his wife, Elizabeth (29) and their six children: Elizabeth Hauser (18), David Hauser (14), Paulina Hauser (11), Obidiah Hauser (6), Isabel Hauser (3), Marilda Hauser (1). Also in the household is 40-year-old Rebecca Edwards -- her role in the household is not given.[4]

1863 George dies in September in Marshall County, Iowa[6] There is an account of the trip to Iowa that says that George and Betsy journeyed to Iowa to "check up on that side of the family." Henry -- who was 13 at the time -- stayed behind in Owen County, Indiana with Betsy's brothers, Jake and Meeny, to put in the 1863 crops. Henry's sisters, Isabell and Marilda, were staying behind to work as "mother's helpers" for some neighbors. The rest of the children -- Hamm (2), Lydia Jane (4), George (6), and Mary ("Polly") (8), all went with their parents. In Iowa, August colds were contracted, and George became sick with "lung fever"[7], and he died in September. He was buried in Marshall County, Iowa, and Betsy and her children moved in with her parents.[8]
