Birth: Oct. 13, 1840, Hungary
Death: 1905
Clay County
Nebraska, USA

John and Theresia Urbauer were born in Hungary in 1839 and 1846 when it was a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Dreams of America led them to depart their homeland. They packed up their three children: John, age 6; Therese, age 3; and Caroline, age 3 months and boarded a ship named OHIO in the Port of Bremen in Germany for the long voyage across the sea. They arrived into the Port of Baltimore on 13 June 1874. The ship's manifest lists John's occupation as house carpenter, his language as Hungarian, and their destination was Wisconsin.
(Other occupations represented on the ship: bricklayer, sheep herder, blacksmith, tailor, servant,shoemaker,laborer all men who were willing to risk it all for a better life in the Shining City on a Hill. Is the torch of Lady Liberty growing dim in 2013?)

The 1880 census record shows the family well
established and owning 150 acres of tilled land
in Clay Co. Nebraska. Their strong work ethic,
belief in personal responsibility and a strong
faith in God enabled them to fulfill their dream

Their 9 children: John, Therese, Caroline, Fred,
Maria, Rosa, Henry, Simon and Anna. Added Aug. 2013/lbk
