HAUPTHOUPHOUCK, Arnold~ Broad Top's Hessian Soldier Posted By: Jane Curci Date: May 12 2003
John Perkins, a descendent of Mary Haupt, daughter of Arnold and Katherine Elizabeth, sent the biographies which I transcribed for family members via the Internet.
As you read the lengthy biography of Arnold you will note the frequent mention of his dear friend, George Berkstresser.
They are buried side by side in the Stoler Cemetery.
Arnold is my 6th great-grandfather: Arnold>Susannah>George>Elizabeth>Mary Jane>Zita>Jane
