In Reply to: Bauer genealogy by Jay Rollinger of 42218

Wondering if Jay is aware of the answers to this query, such as the one on this link, below. Sometimes the poster is unaware that replies have been received.

According to the 1860 US Census in Cochecton, Sullivan County, New York, and accordingn to the 1880 US Census in Morristown, Rice County, Minnesota, the children's birth years are approx:

Salomea Bauer b ca 1852
Christian (aka Christopher) Bauer b ca 1856
Caroline Bauer b ca 1858
Magdalena Bauer b abt 1859
Matthias Bauer b abt 1861
Michael Bauer b abt 1861 (twins

A bride Caroline Bauer married John Weber 28 May 1873 in Rice County, Minnesota, and in 1880 this couple lives next door to the Bauer family above.

Tracking the whereabouts of Michael Bauer, one suspects he might have followed his brothers to Iowa. Here is brother Christian:

1910 US Census
Paton, Greene, Iowa
Christian Bauer, 52, farmer
Mary Bauer, 58
Elmer A Bauer, 24
Mabel C Bauer, 21
Luella E Bauer, 13, niece

Alternately, if Michael lived after 1910, he might have stayed near his daughters:

* Evelyn Mary Bauer born 22 Nov 1905 in Paxton, Redwood, Minnesota
* Dorothy Fern Bauer born 18 Jul 1907 in Paxton, Redwood, Minnesota
* Harriet M Bauer born 03 Oct 1908 in LeSueur County, Minnesota

1910 US Census
Redwood County, Minnesota
Micheal Bauer 47, born about 1861 in New York
Bertha E Bauer 27 b abt 1883
Evelyn M Bauer age 4
Dorothea F Bauer age 2
Hariett M Bauer age 1

You might want to add the name and dob of Abbie Kenney's daughter with Michael as a possible clue to Michael's whereabouts.

All best
