One of the family reunion participants came all the way from Switzerland this year.  Andreas Hauser (left) of Olten, Switzerland is shown with a few of his American relatives, Sue Christensen (center) of Yucaipa, Calif. and Glen Hohenstein (right) of Plymouth, formerly of Rockford.

The Swiss connection began with Leonhard and Elise Hauser, who came to Minnesota in 1882.



The Hausers pose outside their home in Greenfield.  The house, which is no longer there today, was located near the corner of Rebecca Trail (Co. Rd. 50) and Vernon Ave. (Family photos courtesy of family)
