Hege Family

First Generation

Johann Balthazar Hege was born in 1714 in Hausen, Württemburg, Germany, son of Johann Georg Hege and Anna Maria Sifring. He immigrated in 1750 on the Irene, arriving in New York and then settling in Bethlehem PA, where he married Maria Juliana Frey in 1757. Shortly after their wedding they moved to Bethabara NC, arriving there on November 17, 1757. He died in 1785. Maria Juliana outlived him, dying in 1814.

Christian Thomas Hege (1804-1819)
Johann Samuel Hege (1809-?)
Jacob Timotheus Hege (1812-?)

James Jurney's book on the Hege family names Anna Maria's husband simply as Samuel Hauser, with no further information, and previously we asked which Samuel Hauser this was, there being several contemporary men with this name. We now believe it was Samuel Thomas Hauser, son of Simon Peter Hauser and Maria Barbara Schor. Kenneth Hauser's book Alsatian-American Family Hauser gives his wife as Lydia Amon, and lists four children: Julia, Francis Calvin, Samuel Lawrence and Louisa. However, Francis Calvin Hauser is specifically identified in the Moravian records as son of Samuel Thomas Hauser and Anna Maria Hege, as is another child, Phianna Lisetta (1829-1834), whose birthdate falls between the births of Julia and Francis Calvin. Samuel, Mary and the four surviving children appear in the Stokes Co. NC 1850 census. We suspect therefore that Lydia Amon, for whom we can find no marriage record, may be a late second wife, or alternatively, the wife of someone else. Can anyone provide more solid information on this family?

Was Sarah Link, second wife of Thomas Hege, the sister of David Hege's wife Elizabeth Link?
