John and Rosina "Rosa" Hauser

John Hauser was born Abt 1825 in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. I don't know who John Hauser's parents were at this time. He married Rosina "Rosa" Unknown who was born Abt 1827 in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. They evidently immigrated to the United States between 1850-1855. Their oldest son was born in Indiana about 1855 so they were in the USA at that time.

AKA Wirtemberg, Wurtemberg. Its traditional capital was Stuttgart. For short periods of time, the seat of the government was located in Ludwigsburg and Urach. The name of the dynasty and the state originates from a steep Stuttgart hill, close to Stuttgart-Untertürkheim. Now the region is part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. Württemberg, once a Duchy within the Holy Roman Empire, in 1806 became the Kingdom with the break-up of empire. This was during the reign of Frederick I of Württemberg. In 1918 it became a republic called the Free People's State of Württemberg. After World War II, Württemberg was divided between the United States and French occupation zones and became part of two new states: Württemberg-Baden and Württemberg-Hohenzollern. After the Federal Republic of Germany was formed in 1949, these two states merged with Baden in 1952 to become the modern German state of Baden-Württemberg.

The Kingdom of Württemberg (German: Königreich Württemberg) was a state in Germany that existed from 1806 to 1918, located in the area that is nowBaden-Württemberg. The Kingdom was a continuation of the Duchy of Württemberg, which came into existence in 1495. Prior to 1495, the ruling house of Württemberg had consisted of counts ruling only a fragment of the Duchy of Swabia, which had dissolved after the death of Duke Conradin in 1268. The Kingdom had borders with Bavaria on the east and south, with Baden in the north and west. In the southwest it held a short border with the Hohenzollernand Lake Constance.

Frederick II
Once a Duchy within the Holy Roman Empire, on 1 January 1806, Duke Frederick II assumed the title of king from Frederick I, abrogated the constitution and united old and new Württemberg. Subsequently, he placed the property of the church under the control of the Kingdom, whose boundaries were also greatly extended by the process of "mediatisation".

The European Revolutions of 1848, known in some countries as the Spring of Nations, Springtime of the Peoples or the Year of Revolution, were a series of political upheavals throughout Europe in 1848. It remains the most widespread revolutionary wave in European history, but within a year, reactionary forces had regained control, and the revolutions collapsed.

The revolutionary wave began in France in February, and immediately spread to most of Europe and parts of Latin America. Over 50 countries were affected, but with no coordination or cooperation among the revolutionaries in different countries. Five factors were involved: widespread dissatisfaction with political leadership; demands for more participation in government and democracy; the demands of the working classes; the upsurge of nationalism; and finally, the regrouping of the reactionary forces based on the royalty, the aristocracy, the army, and the peasants.

The "March Revolution" in the German states took place in the south and the west of Germany, with large popular assemblies and mass demonstrations. Led by well-educated students and intellectuals, they demanded German national unity, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly. The uprisings were not well coordinated, but had in common a rejection of traditional, autocratic political structures in the 39 independent states of the German Confederation. The middle-class and working-class components of the Revolution split, and in the end, the conservative aristocracy defeated it, forcing many liberals into exile.

The uprisings were led by shaky ad hoc coalitions of reformers, the middle classes and workers, which did not hold together for long. Tens of thousands of people were killed, and many more forced into exile. The only significant lasting reforms were the abolition of serfdom in Austria and Hungary, the end of absolute monarchy in Denmark, and the definitive end of the Capetian monarchy in France. The revolutions were most important in France, Germany, Poland, Italy, and the Austrian Empire, but did not reach Russia, Sweden, Great Britain, and most of southern Europe (Spain, Serbia, Greece, Montenegro, Portugal, the Ottoman Empire)

In 1806, Frederick II joined the Confederation of the Rhine and received further additions of territory with 160,000 inhabitants. Later, by the Peace of Vienna of October 1809, about 110,000 more people came under his rule. In return for these favours, Frederick joined French Emperor Napoleon I in his campaigns against Prussia, Austria and Russia. Of the 16,000 of his subjects who marched to Moscow, only a few hundred returned. After the Battle of Leipzig in October 1813, King Frederick deserted the French emperor, and by a treaty with Metternich at Fulda in November 1813, he secured the confirmation of his royal title and of his recent acquisitions of territory, while his troops marched with those of the allies into France. In 1815, the King joined the German Confederation, but the Congress of Vienna made no change to the extent of his lands. In the same year, he laid before the representatives of his people the outline of a new constitution, but they rejected it, and in the midst of the commotion that ensued, Frederick died on 30 October 1816.

William I
He was succeeded by his son, William I (reigned 1816–1864), who after much discussion, granted a new constitution in September 1819. This constitution, with subsequent modifications, remained in force until 1918 (see Württemberg). The desire for greater political freedom did not entirely fade under the constitution of 1819, and after 1830, some transitory unrest occurred.

A period of quiet set in, and the condition of the kingdom, its education, its agriculture, its trade and economy improved. Both in public and in private matters, William's frugality helped to repair the country's shattered finances. The inclusion of Württemberg in the German Zollverein and the construction of railways fostered trade.

The revolutionary movement of 1848 did not leave Württemberg untouched, although no violence took place in the territory.

William had to dismiss Johannes Schlayer (1792–1860) and his other ministers, and call to power men with more liberal ideas, proponents of united Germany. William proclaimed a democratic constitution, but as soon as the movement had spent its force he dismissed the liberal ministers, and in October 1849, Schlayer and his associates returned to power. By interfering with popular electoral rights, the king and his ministers succeeded in assembling a servile diet in 1851 that surrendered the privileges gained since 1848. In this way the authorities restored the constitution of 1819, and power passed into bureaucratic hands. A concordat with the papacy proved almost the last act of William's long reign, but the diet repudiated the agreement.

John Hauser and Rosina had 6 children that I'm aware of:
1) Erhard Hauser born abt 1855 in Indiana. I believe him to be Edward Hauser, Sr. The DOB's are close, Erhard was born in Indiana about 1855 according to the 1870 US Census and Edward was born in Indiana on 15 Feb 1854 according to his Illinois death record. This death record also states that Edward's parents were John Hauser and "Annie Slanker". Erhard's parents were John Hauser and Rosina Unknown. Could she be Rosina "Rosa" Annie Slanker? Are theyt the same? Edward Hauser Sr. was born 2/15/1854 in Indiana and died 11/19/1938 in Wood River, Madison County, IL and buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Oakwood Avenue, Alton, Madison County, IL**. He married Frieda Buckhardt (DOB 10/1/1864 in Alton, Madison County, IL; DOD 8/29/1940 in Wood River, Madison County, IL) and she's buried with him. If you have any more information or can correct me, please contact me.

*History of Sister's Hospital
Guided by a desire to care for the sick and poor, Father Christopher Bernsmeyer, OFM, founded the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis in Telgte, Germany in 1844. There, in the chapel of the Sorrowful Mother, the first five courageous members of the Hospital Sisters dedicated themselves to service to the poor in rural areas.

The Hospital Sisters continued their commitment to care for the sick and poor. In 1875, Bishop Peter Joseph Baltes invited Reverend Mother Cherubine to send the Sisters to his diocese in Alton, Illinois. Twenty Sisters, led by Sister Angelica, departed from their native Germany to begin their work in Illinois as the American Province of the Hospital Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis. After arriving in Illinois, the Sisters provided nursing care in Alton, Springfield, Belleville, Effingham, East St. Louis and Litchfield – oftentimes in their own homes. Since the Sisters were not allowed to accept money for their services, many times the patient’s family compensated the Sisters with food. Within 12 years, six hospitals had been built and the cornerstone of a seventh had been laid.

St. Joseph’s Hospital was established in January 1878. At the request of Reverend Joseph Meckel, Pastor of St. Paul’s Church, Mother Angelica Ratte sent two nursing sisters to Highland. Upon their arrival, they made their home with the School Sisters of Notre Dame. Without means to furnish even a small building for themselves, an appeal was directed to local residents of Highland who generously responded with all necessary articles – furniture, cooking utensils and even food.

As Highland continued growing, so did the need for additional nursing Sisters and a medical facility. During the summer of 1878, numerous public meetings were held to freely discuss the need for a hospital. Many feared that the hospital would not pay for itself and would become a burden for the community at large. Several noteworthy citizens believed the contrary and persisted in pointing out to the rest of local residents the advantages derived from such an institution in the vicinity.

After a public “subscription drive” was completed – whereby local residents donated money, materials or equipment – the formal dedication of the new St. Joseph’s Hospital took place on Thursday, August 21, 1879, when the structure was opened to admit its first patient, Mrs. Ring. The little two-story building provided the convent for the Sisters and room for 12 patients. Bequests, donations, subscriptions, raffles, benefit fairs, and even a musical concert, all figured in the raising of funds to pay for the new hospital.

Tragically, fire destroyed St. Joseph’s Hospital on January 24, 1892. New additions and renovations were completed in 1897, 1926 and 1937, but in June 1950, the cornerstone for the recent four-story facility addition was laid.

Sisters arrived in Illinois at the invitation of Bishop Peter Joseph Baltes of Alton, IL, to provide nursing care to the sick and poor in Alton, Springfield, Belleville, Litchfield, Effingham, and East St. Louis. The American Province of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis is founded.

The Sisters founded the following hospitals:
St. John’s Hospital, Springfield, IL
St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Belleville, IL
St. Francis Hospital, Litchfield, IL
St. Anthony’s Hospital, Effingham, IL

The Sisters founded the following hospitals:
St. Joseph’s Hospital, Highland, IL
St. Mary’s Hospital, Decatur, IL
