John Hauck (1829-96) was born in Mühlhofen in the Palatinate area of Bavaria (now Germany). At age twenty-two, in 1852, he immigrated to the United States, arriving at New Orleans aboard the Chesapeake, a sailing ship. Two weeks later, he moved to Cincinnati, where his uncle, George M. Herancourt (1807-1880), operated a brewery. After a short relocation to Philadelphia, where he also worked in a brewery, Hauck returned to Cincinnati.
