The Hower/Hauer Family

Michael Hower & Eve Veit

Many thanks to Mary Lou Baumann for the information on the Hower Family. I have met many new cousins online who have added information. There is a great book by Charles C. Hower and Agnes Hower Wells entitled "A Hower History: The descendants of Hans Hauer of Neureuth, Germany" which lists the descendants of Michael Hower whose connection to two immigrant Hower brothers are uncertain.
Direct line is in bold; + means there is another generation on this page.
