Joshua W. Hauck, son of George and Hannah Hauck, was born in July of 1827 or 1828 in Frederick Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. A biographical sketch of his son Samuel listed Joshua's birthdate as 7 July 1827, while Joshua's tombstone shows a birthdate of 31 July 1828. On the 1830 census in Frederick Township the household of George Hauck contained a male, age 0 to 5, presumed to be his son Joshua. Joshua was a tailor. He appeared on the census of 1850 in New Hanover Township, Montgomery County, where he was living with the family of Mary Miller, age 58, next door to a George Hauck, age 29.

On 23 August 1862, Joshua enlisted as a private in the 17th Pennsylvania Cavalry Volunteers, commanded by Col. J. H. Kellogg. Joshua served as a bugler in Company L, commanded by Captain Theodore W.
