My paternal GGrandfather was John J. Neuhaus, as I found him to be in records in the USA. However his middle name may have been Ignatius, as that is how I have seen it on a family tree of his first daughter's marriage and family. He was born between 1825 and 1829, in Westphalia, Prussia. I have no idea who his parents were. I am trying to find out what this uniform is. It has a #4 on the shoulder. I'm not sure if it was taken in Westphalia or in the USA. My cousin gave me this copy of a photo that her mother got from some relatives in Iowa, where he is listed in the 1870 and 1880 Federal census, in Davenport, Scott Co. He is in the 1860 census in Chicago, Cook Co.Il. He came to the US sometime before 1855 where he was married in New York, NY. to Mary Louis Kelly. She was born there in 1840. They had Eight children, one of them being my Grandfather, John F. Neuhaus.
