Johann Haberman and his wife Thresia Meyer never immigrated from Austria. From the information that has been collected there were six children born to this marriage.
Franz is believed to be the oldest of the children. According to stories passed down through the family Franz came to America for a short time, but went back to Austria. Maybe he went back home because he was the oldest and needed to take care of their elderly parents or to inherit the property.
Theresa Haberman was born in 1840 in Austria and married Joseph Giesel before immigrating to the United States and settling in the Heron Lake, Minnesota area.
