A couple of my wife's ancestors from Friederichsdorf are seen in records with the word "kolonist" after their names.  They are Christian Hauch and Jacob Hauch.  I understand in english this is the word colonist and that it was used to refer to those germans who settled this area.  Can anyone give me more information about this term.  Are there lists of the colonists? Since both men are referred to as colonist could they be father and son or is it more likley they were brothers?  Christian Hauch appears in this area about 1838 and the record I see for Jacob Hauch's daughter's death is dated 1857.
