Martin Hauser (1696-1761) is the immigrant ancestor of more than 12,000 individuals with the surnames Hauser, Hooser, Hoosier and Houser. His first 26 years in America are described.

Abstract:
Martin Hauser and his wife Margaretha came to America in 1727, arriving at Philadelphia. For the next 14 years, Martin, a carpenter, plied his trade as his family grew. In 1741, Martin decided to try farming, first in Pennsylvania, and then in Maryland. In 1753 Martin and his family including his grown sons moved to North Carolina, near the new Moravian Wachovia grant. Martin was one of the original settlers of Bethania, a new Moravian village established in 1756. He is the immigrant ancestor of more than 12,000 individuals with the surnames Hauser, Hooser, Hoosier and Houser.
