William Hauser of GA -- 19th c.

of 274
Does anyone out there know anyting about my ancestor, Dr. William Hauser,
originally from Winston-Salem area but moved to GA in mid-19th century.
He was a doctor, Methodist minister, professor in the Med College of GA
when it was in Savannah, and a fine musician. He edited "The Hesperian
Harp" (said to be one of dozen most significant shaped-note hymnals ever
published in the US, published in Dayton, VA in 1839. He also published
"The Olive Leaf" in the 1850's. He is written up in the works of the
noted American "White Spirituals" expert, George Pullen Jackson of
Vanderbilt. I bought the bookby Kenneth Hauser a number of years ago,
and my great-great-grandfather's name isn't even in it and none of his
accomplishments, although the Moravian Music Foundation labels him
"Appalachia's most significant contribution to American music." I bear
his name as my middle name (my mother's maiden name), andhis gifts rest
in me, both an organist / choir person by undergraduate degreeand a
Presbyterian minister of 35 years. I'd love to hear from anyone who might
know anything more about him and his work.

John: You will find reference to Dr. & Rev. William C. Hauser in the
family line of Martin Hauser III and Leah Billeter (actually Billiter) on
p. 278 of Kenneth Hauser's book. You alsowill find a paragraph, with a
footnote of references, about William C. on p.76 and a rather poor
reproduction of an engraving of him on p. 77. I have microfilm copies of
William C.'s Hesperian Harp and The Olive Leaf which were made for me by
the Research Library at UCLA. I have examined other original William C.
materials, including some autographic letters and billings from his
Wadley, GA, pharmacy (which featured patent medicines in alcohol
solutions)in the Historical Library in Savannah, Georgia. He also owned
a guano plant in Wadley! Finally, the LDS Family History Library has a
copy of Schmidt, Annie Laura (Hauser), "Eight Known Generations of the
Hauser Family in America: 1726 to 1956", publ. by the Hauser Printing
Co., New Orleans, LA, 1956(?) which has an extensive presentation about

a Methodist minister (probably a Moravian originally) in GA, a doctor, a
professor in the Medical College of GA when it was in Savannah, and (most
important to me), a musician who edited two fine early American,
shaped-note hymnbooks. He edited "The Hesperian Harp" and published it in
1839. Much later he published "The Olive Leaf." Many tunes from "The
Hesperian Harp" arein modern American hymnals. I have an original copy
that belonged to Jefferson Davis; it has his signature in the front of
it. I acquired it (very expensive, from a collector) in 1977. He is
written up extensively in music historypublications of this century,
discussing the particular American musical phenomenon known as "fasolla"
or "shaped note" singing. His picture is in a notedwork, "White
Spirituals in the Southern Uplands" by George Pullen Jackson of

Reconstructing the James Billiter Family of PA           7/2000

(James is s/o Joe the Boat Builder.)            by Jim Billiter

As of January, 2000 we knew that Joseph Billiter (b where?
1765-1774, fl 1796-1826 Belle Vernon, PA) had five sons, Joseph
Jr, Noah C, James, Lewis, and John.  We call Joseph Sr 'Joe the Boat
Builder', and abbreviate that as 'JoeBB'.  (My apologies to
ggg-grandpa Joe.)

Three sons propagated the Billiter name 'down the river'.  First
Joe Jr in the early 1820's went to Brown Co, OH with a young
family.  By the 1830's Noah C and his much younger brother, John,
landed in Marshall Co, VA, somewhat south of Wheeling.  We have a
fair amount of detail about many of their descendants, which
include myself.

We knew nothing of the other two sons, James and Lewis, except
that they were buried with JoeBB in the Gould Hill Cemetery in
Belle Vernon from the following source.

    "The Old and New Monongahela" written in 1893 by John S. Van
    Voorhis. (Gen Pub Co)  Courtesy RPB, JHB p. 315.  "The first
    burial ground intended for Bellevernon was on the well-known
    Gould hill, situated now in the village of 'Seldom Seen.'
    During Wylie's ownership of the land, permission for burial
    was granted and J. B. Gould, who succeeded Wylie, gave the
    same privilege.  The remains of Louis Cisly were the first
    to be interred in this ground, but in what year we connot
    ascertain.  Then followed the burial of Casper Ebner, Joseph
    Billiter and his two sons, James and Lewis."

Indeed, this burial information has been the only reason to add
James and Lewis to JoeBB's family group, until now.  Bill Moyer
of Garden Grove, CA recently sent the family group of James H
Billiter, b PA 4/17/1833, Bill's gg-grandfather.  Bill thought
that James H was probably a grandson of JoeBB.

In PA's genealogical wasteland from the period, we have only a
few scattered land and census records.  I will use these to make
a case for a Billiter line in PA descended from James Billiter,
s/o JoeBB.  Note that I will rely heavily on the rarity of the
Billiter name, proximity to Belle Vernon, and the dangerous
assumption that 'absence of evidence is evidence of absence' in
census data.  The last is usually a fallacy, but census data are
intended to be exhaustive, so it might be admitted by exception,
especially during the period of PA's genealogical dark age.  For
example:  I conclude that JoeBB died before 1830 because he does
*not* appear in the 1830 census; there is no death certificate
for JoeBB, simply because PA didn't make death certificates at
the time.  And of course, we have never found JoeBB's will, and
his grave was destroyed in the early 1900's.

Now to the argument.  There were Billiter progeny in PA,
proximate to Belle Vernon, in the 1800's after Joe Jr, Noah C,
and John went 'down the river'.  Those Billiters (Priscilla,
James H, Henry, etc.) remaining near Belle Vernon are almost
certainly descended from JoeBB's sons, Lewis and James, who were
buried at Gould Hill with their father. James and Lewis stayed
and died in PA.

From Voorhis' wording in his history (above) it appears that
James and Lewis died not long after JoeBB, at least from Voorhis'
remote standpoint in 1893.

A James Billiter appears in the 1830 PA census, but Lewis does
not.  James is the right age and in the right place, a few miles
from Belle Vernon, to be JoeBB's son, and our only candidate.

( Ralph Billiter has noted that the eldest female in James'
household could well be JoeBB's widow, Sarah Seward Billiter. )

If Lewis died before 1830, then he was perhaps without issue.
And that leaves James, who survived in 1830, but is absent in
1840.  Assume that James died between 1830 and 1840, the only
possible Billiter patriarch at that time.  So, where is his

We have found no Billiters in PA's 1840 census.  Because Lewis
and JoeBB died before 1830, and James in the 1830's.

Census data from 1850:

Cookstown Borough became Fayette City in 1854.  Note that Susan,
b 1801, is likely a widow.  Whose?  Not Lewis', dead by 1830,
after which Susan is still having children in 1831 and 1833.  By
age, proximity, and elimination, Susan is then James' widow.
Also, the Lewis Billiter in nearby Green Co, is probably the
second of the two males under 5 years in the 1830 census for
James' household.

Conclusions --

- James died abt 1834, at age 32 (approx): from his widow's
household in 1850 they had been robustly building a family (of
glassblowers), but halted suddenly after young James's birth in

- James' family comprised at least 1) wife Susan b 1801, 2) son
Lewis b 1828, 3) son Henry b 1829, 4) daughter Sarah P b 1831,
and 5) son James b 1833.

- By name, proximity, and DOB, James (s/o James m Susan) is Bill
Moyer's gg-grandfather, James H.  The family group (James H m
Margaret Guinn) is courtesy Bill.

The family groups for Lewis and Henry (the other sons of James
and Susan) can be at least partially completed from the 1880 PA
census data and several IGI entries.  (But not discussed here.)
