Neusser, a small community of the early 1890s located almost equal distance between Georgetown and Granger in central Williamson County, was named after one of its early pioneers, Johann Neusser. Johann left his birthplace of Moravia, Austria, and sought freedom from oppression upon the peoples of Central Europe (especially the Moravians) and the impending hostilities between Austria and Prussia. He arrived in America on or about December 20, 1871, via the port of New York, and made his way to Fayette County, Texas, where he settled in the Moravian community of Ammannsville, probably early in 1872. Ammannsville was one of several communities in southern Fayette County with sizable populations of Czech and Moravian immigrants. Neusser married Johanna Janak, also an immigrant from Moravia, on November 24, 1874. They had two sons, the eldest of which died in infancy, and a daughter. Neusser worked as a blacksmith.
