I am trying to find some info about a Bauer family of Hocking or Fairfield County Ohio.

Story goes that John Reel was orphaned and raised by the Bauer family. John was born in Fairfield in Nov 1861 and moved from OH to Strasburg, Shelby County, Illinois in 1866 at the age of 5. Supposedly his father is named William H. Reel, but I don't know where this info came from.

Does anyone have any idea which Bauer family this may have been??
Christian and Elizabeth Johana Kircher Bauer?
Jacob Friederich and Catharine Ulmer Bauer?

Please, if you have any ideas where I should be going if it isn't here, pass them along!

Thank you,
