I think you will need to contact me through private email, since I am not currently and member, and I do not have your contact information.

Regarding our family, if my information is right, your mother is Virginia. Your grandfather was also Andrew J. Faust (born 10/10/1890), and his parents were Adam Faust (7/4/1866 - 12/12/1912), and Christina Wolf (born 12/1869). Adams parents were Jacob Faust (10/25/1819 - 7/1/1877) and Concessa Becker (10/24/1842 - 8/29/1920). Jacob Faust immigrated from Germany in 1854.

Your great grandfather, Adam Faust, moved to Milwaukee in the late 1880's with his brothers Philip, Ernest, and Alois, and his sister Gertrude.

I have many photographs that might be of interest to you, as well as records. I have several questions for you that I will save for private email. My email address is

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Quilter2009,

I do not currently have an account with, so I am not able to contact you privately. Please reply with your email address or contact me at I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Herbert Faust is the only child of Alois Faust and Mary Lauer that I do not have much information for. That said, I do have lots of information, photos, and stories for his siblings, cousins, and his ancestors.

I did find his obituary in Eau Claire, that says he had a sign company in Milwaukee. I also heard that he may have done something with photography. I would very much like to learn more about him and his family.

His father, Alois Faust, was born in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin on the Faust homestead farm. He moved to Milwaukee around the turn of the century and married Mary Lauer. He worked at Porth Pie Company for many years. After his wife died he remarried Anna Hubacher, who I think was also a widow.

Alois' father (Herbert's grandfather), was Jacob Faust (1819 - 1877). He immigrated from Germany in 1854 and bought 80 acres of Land in Manitowoc County.

I look forward to talking with you through email so that I can send you photographs of family members and share more.
