The Hauer Family
Herman Hauer came from Germany about 1883. He was a wood worker and carpenter, specializing in cabinet making and coffins. When he died, years later, he was buried in a coffin he had made.
Peter Bloom, a Swede, also came from Europe about this time and brought two nieces, Annie and Lena Holm.
Joel Nail, a wealthy Choctaw who lived at Nail’s Crossing, employed Herman Hauer to build a new home and several barns for him. They also engaged the services of Annie Holm as housekeeper, who was one of the nieces brought over by Peter Bloom. This was the beginning of a romance between the carpenter, Herman Hauer, and Annie Holm the Swedish girl that resulted in marriage. They lived out their lives in Caddo.
There were 10 children born to this union. They were: Lena Ham, Henry Hauer, Herman Hauer, Eddy Hauer, Frank Hauer, Alma Braudrick, Nina McCoy, Lillian Hauer, who died at the age of 13, Clara Hancock, and Mabel Stephens.
Lena, the sister of Annie, was married to Asply Faudree who lived in Atoka Oklahoma.
