The Story, History, and Genealogy

of Many Bauders

by Luella Bauder

Many of you have written us such nice letters and we really appreciate them and

say a Big Thank you for writing.

Please let us know when you receive the book or books. For you that have

ordered both books and the extra Supplement, just want you to know they will be

in separate orders as they as they go at a different postage rate.

For you that have not written, we would appreciate a letter from you. With so

many of the same name it's hard to tell who is this one and so on. If I both

husband and wife I can tie them in most of the time.

If you ordered an extra Supplement and you don't have the original book and you

see you don't need it, please return it and we will refund your money as we are

about out of the Supplements. We have plenty of the full books as we had more

extra of those than of the Supplements.

When this book is all mailed out, I think I will try and catch up on so many

things that I have had to put off because I didn't have the time to do both.

Then about the later part of Sept. We plan on a trip as the fall is about the

only time we can be gone for any length of time because everything has to be

irrigated in this area. We are not getting any younger so want to do these

things while we can.

We hope you enjoy the book as much as we have enjoyed doing it for all of you.

Pages and pages of genealogy have came in too late to get in anywhere and we

thank all of you for your help. Some of the last we could still put on the

Family Tree Chart so maybe you can find yourself on it.

When we read in the paper about the "bubonic plague" Rudolph told me about his

Grandmother telling about the conditions in Switzerland when his Great

Grandmother died of cholera. (She was Katharina Zirn Ottenbacher, wife of

Chesspoores, John Ottenbacher) Grandmother said that the filth was so bad that

one wondered how anyone lived.

May God be with all of you is our prayer.

This book is intended for all Bauders, everywhere, who are interested in their

ancestry both in this country and in other lands. There are Bauders in many

countries today.

I am not a writer and I make no apology for this book. I have written it solely

for the purpose of preserving some first-hand knowledge of the early days of

some of the Bauders in the United States, plus their ancestry, both history and

genealogy, as far back as there are direct records.

I have learned these actual facts and details through my research. They

include early Midwestern United States history, Medieval history, German

history, and Russian history. I searched and searched for old maps. I even

ordered some, but they didn't have the towns shown that I wanted. Later, after

months of-searching, our son, Gerald, found the maps that had some of these

towns shown. They are not too clear, but by careful study, you will be able to

find them.

My special thanks go to my husband, Rudolph, who has helped in so many

ways--especially with the history research and the German translation; to my

son, Gerald and his wife, Louisa, who have helped so faithfully with the

research; to my son, Milo and especially his wife, Donna, who has corrected

and typed the finished manuscript; to my grandson, Bret for art work; to Clara

(Bauder) Loyd for the lovely Bauder Coat of Arms, from which the picture was

taken, and the old family records she furnished. Then, to all who have helped

in anyway, I am deeply grateful.

ARE YOU REALLY A BAUDER? If you are, it is my hope that through the reading of

this book, you will not only find enjoyment, but you will have a better

understanding of what a wonderful Christian heritage we Bauders have; and,

perhaps, you will appreciate more than ever your place in history!

CHAPTER 1 - In the Beginning

My husband, Rudolph, is really the Bauder. He has always been a good story

teller! He could hold his listeners spellbound with his tales of happenings in

his earlier life, also what happened in the early days of the lives of his

parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts. These tales were told of the Bauders

both before and after they came to this country. Much was handed down to him,

but he remembers back when he was three years old -- 1906.

His mother's people, the Franks, talked the low German (low German dialect was

spoken by the people of the lowlands of Germany) and the Bauders spoke the

high German. They were from the hilly country. Rudolph had an uncle who knew

another dialect, and he learned that also. So, he could speak all three

dialects. When we first were married, he was going to teach me German, but he

soon gave up as he told me I could never twist my tongue right.

Rudolph never had much schooling in German, only during his confirmation

class, when he was confirmed in the Lutheran Church. Since that time, he has

kept up with his German Bible reading to a degree. During all these years, he

has never ran out of true accounts to tell and has kept many a people

entertained, especially our grandchildren.

As the years passed, I began to realize that this was family history and real

information that should somehow be kept, but HOW? What good would these

stories be without the records of the family, at least the direct line back?

I had heard about family trees for years, but I didn't think too much about

them until I began wondering how and where I would start something that would

include this history and information. This was, perhaps, around 1950.

About this time, Rudolph's Aunt Tina (Christina Ramsey) came to visit us. She

was the youngest child of the Andreas Bauder, Sr. I family, and had kept up

with most of the family more so than the other children. I asked her for all

the family names she could give me. I made a chart with these names and put it

away in a drawer. This chart contained valuable information that I have never

been able to duplicate.

My great regret is that I didn't go ahead with my research then, while many

of, that generation were still living. Aunt Tina's memory was good and she

remembered the names of all her uncles and aunts, who they married, some of

their children, and the ones that came to this country and where they settled.

I was busy, and time flew by. Different ones would ask when I was going to

make the family tree, but other things kept me too busy. Then, members of my

family started working on the maternal family tree. I decided if I was ever to

get the Bauder records done, I had to start now, as time was fast slipping

away. The generation that could have helped so much was about all gone. But,

REALLY, how does one START?

There were no census for the years I needed in the Midwestern United States.

Our Bauder records had to come through the family. In September of 1967, I

wrote to cousins and tried to get information. The letters went out and I

waited and WAITED! This waiting was, perhaps, my most difficult task!

Some cousins answered right away; others had to get records from different

ones and places before they could send them on to me. It was a slow process.

Some cousins never did answer and wouldn't see us when we went to see them,

but on the whole, everyone was so helpful.

I received many obituaries and planned to put them in my records, but nearly

all of them contained mistakes; so I have just used parts of them. I received

copies of citizenship papers and planned to have them in this book, but I

found that it was illegal to have them. I destroyed them after I took down the

dates and necessary information. You will find these in the back of the book.

I researched in libraries, but the Bauders hadn't been in the States long

enough to find much information on them. What little I did find didn't fit

into our line of Bauders. The more I researched, the more determined I was to

get information further back than just this country.

I contacted genealogy researchers, but I could not afford them, so I went ahead

with what I had -- all the time looking! During this time, I discovered that

there were other Bauder lines that had some researched genealogy.

In the fall of 1968 Rudolph and I took a trip. We visited cousins, some we had

known and some we had not. I asked questions wherever we went and took notes

on everything. Different times we thought we had found some important facts

on the family history, but it didn't turn out that way.

Then Rudolph's cousin-in-law, Wesley Holmes, whose wife was Louise Schaal,

told us that Mrs. Bill Schaal was working on the Schaals' family history; and,

that I probably could get information I needed from her regarding the Schaals

I called her and she gave me that part of the history. She also gave me the

name of Mr. F. Weir, a research person in Germany. I wrote to him; and, in

turn, he gave me the name of Dr. Karl Stumpp, an unstinted, devoted researcher

of the German Russians.

Correspondence with Dr. Stumpp was very slow and waiting for his very

informative letters was a real test for my patience because of my eagerness to

get more history of the Bauders! It was months this time before I got a letter!

Up to this point, Rudolph hadn't taken too much interest in my research;

however, when we went on the trip, his interest was aroused. The real

difference was apparent when I received the first German letter from Mr.

Weir---and, I couldn't read it!! Rudolph couldn't read it too well, either,

but he could get the general idea of it. Then I had it translated.

Eagerly and with real enthusiasm I wrote more letters! Again having my

patience tried as I waited for replies! A few times I have been discouraged

and wanted to quit, but Rudolph would say, "Oh. I don't think you should do

that." Consequently, I forged on.

When the first records came through from Russia, I was thrilled; and, again,

Rudolph was the one whose interest climbed. From then on, he has really helped

me! Together we have researched many, many hours in our attempt to know all

about these countries we were getting records from.

In December of 1969, we received the Bauder records in book form that were

compiled by Dr. Wilhelm Bauder, who died in 1963. This book was started 90

years ago. Several people worked on it, but Dr. Bauder completed it. It was

75 years in production. Then, just this April of 1970, I received the last of

all the Bauder records from Russia. All the others were destroyed except these

that were taken out.

Any Bauders that ever had ancestors in Russia are in our line of Bauders.

Other Bauders, who remained in Germany or who came to the States, are just as

closely related. I have some information on these other Bauder lines.

CHAPTER 2 - Countries and Towns of our Ancestry

Since our people were German, I will first relate a little German history.

Through the ages, country boundaries have changed often. One reason for these

changes was war. It seems that the Germans were overrun much of the time by

other countries. In the early days, the main route (or only route) through the

Alps was through the southern part of Germany, consequently the peoples from

the south would go through Germany on their way to other places to war and, of

course, plunder the Germans. Boundary lines in many countries are changing

today, so we can understand how they changed then.

Within the countries, there were divisions, such as our states, counties, and

zones. In Germany, these divisions were called estates, or states, as they are

today. In these states, there were Kreis like our counties. In the llth

century these estates, or Kreis, were ruled by Dukes, Earls, Knights, or

Lords. In some histories they were called Princes and Nobles. There was a King

over these underrulers, but he was just an effigy.

In the late 12th century, three of these states, to the south, Uri, Schweiz,

and Unterwalden formed a confederation which was the beginning of Switzerland.

Twenty five years later more states joined the original three and are still

part of Switzerland.

There are many Bauders in Switzerland, whose records have not yet been traced.

Some of the Ottenbachers came from Switzerland. Grandmother, Christina

Ottenbacher, was born and lived there until the age of nine.

In Germany most of the towns and cities have retained the same names, even

through today. However, the spelling of some of these names are two different

ways. For instance, Nurnberg on some maps today may be spelled Nuremberg

beneath the other way of spelling. The city of Bremen hasn't changed. It is

the city and seaport from which grandfather Andreas Bauder Sr. I and family

sailed when they came to America.

Leaving Germany now and taking a look at Russia, it seems that the Russians

were in war constantly, sometimes losing and sometimes gaining possessions.

Russia was divided into parts, called provinces, in some histories. I have

used province in referring to these; however, at the time the Bauders were

there, these divisions were called "The Government of" instead of "The

Province of" whichever division it was. For instance, the Government of

Cherson, or the Government of Bessarabia (Bessarabien). On the map of 1879

that follows, you will see some of these divisions.

In both Germany and Russia, towns have been completely wiped out by war and

pestilence. In Russia, the spelling of many of these towns has changed. It has

been said by some writers that when a German town or settlement in Russia

reached the population of 10,000, the Russians changed the name to a Russian

name because most of these German settlements had German names.

Hoffnungsthal, in German, means "The Valley of Hope." The Russians changed it

to Zebrikowo. Most of these German settlements were close to a Russian city

and might have a name of their own or just be their own city within or beside

the Russian city. The Germans that went to Moscow, Russia, by the invitation

of Peter the Great, had their own settlement within Moscow.

Many of our people have been uncertain about the correct spelling of these

towns; therefore, I have gone to many places to research old and new maps in

search of answers. Many times I nearly gave up the quest. Then, I wondered how

I could write about these places without the correct spelling, hence I kept


Our son, Gerald, has helped us many times in our research. He located these

old maps in the Rosenberg Library in Houston, Texas. They were in the bottom

drawer of an atlas cabinet located in a dark corner of the library. They are

dated 1879, and taken from the German Hand Atlas by Adolf Stieler. Even on

these old maps in other atlas' these towns and provinces were spelled

differently. No wonder that people were uncertain about the correct spelling!

The detailed map of part of Russia, following this chapter, is the only map on

which Hoffnungsthal is located. Most writers leave out the "h" in the last

part of this town, but in the Chronicles of Hoffnungsthal the "h" is included.

Dr. Stumpp leaves it out.

The following towns are the nearest correct that I have been able to find --

Birsula, Balta, and Arcis. Rudolph's Mother, Pauline Frank, was German. Her

grandfather was eleven years old when he went to Arcis, Russia, with his

father, Gottlieb Frank, from Polen, Germany. Her father was the first one in

their settlement that had to serve in the Russian army when the Germans'

rights were taken away from them. Arcis is in the Province of Bessarabia


Hoffnungsthal is in the Province of Cherson. Birsula was almost on the

province line. Some maps give it on one side of the line and other maps give

it on the other side, between Cherson and Bessarabia. Seabach was just outside

of Birsula. Balta was a much larger place in the Province of Podolia

(Podolien). When our people had legal business to take care of. they went to

Balta. It was, perhaps, fifteen or twenty miles from Seabach.

Another town I want to mention is Toplitz (ed - now called Teplitz) in the

Province of Bessarabia. The Schaals, originally from Germany, came to this

area in 1817. Samuel Schaal later married Aunt Dora Bauder after coming, to


Still another town in the Province of Bessarabia, is Grossliebental. (ed -

Grossliebental was actually in the District of Grossliebental, sometimes

referred to as the Liebental District, near the city of Odessa in the area or

"Province" of Odessa.) I didn't find it on any map, but I have added, it to

this map. because I have its location from the Chronicles of Grossliebental.

Jakob Bauder of Family No. 17 went to Grossliebental. Russia, from

Pfullingen, Germany. He was Dr. Stumpp's great, great grandfather.

These facts will be of interest to many readers.

This should give you a little knowledge of Germany and Russia that relates to

our forefathers.

CHAPTER 4 - A Look Backward At Germany and Russia

Through the past centuries, the peoples of both Germany and Russia have

suffered a great deal for various reasons.

About the time the Bauders appeared, there were two chief occupations, the

destructive work of war and the productive toil of agriculture. The country

was overrun from the east and from the west and also from within its own

boundaries. These wars within Germany were between the different estates that

were ruled by the Earls. (Some of the Bauders were rulers of these estates.)

During all these wars, the people continued to farm. They had to farm if they

wanted to eat. When the elements were not against them, they could make the

land really produce. The Germans were good at most everything they applied

themselves to. However, they were behind in their cavalry, because they knew

nothing about stirrups for their saddles until they were overrun by the

"Huns," a Nomad people that could fight better offensively because they could

stay on their horses with the aid of the stirrup.

In the 13th century, changes occurred in rural and city life. At this time the

farm areas were almost within the towns or cities and were mostly walled for

protection. Some of these cities date back to the Roman Empire, such as Basel,

Strasbourg, Speyer, Worms, Mainz, and Cologne. The artisans, or craftsmen,

worked in the center of town, unless the shop was in the home. The weavers

date back to 1099, the shoemaker to 1128, the bed-tick makers, lathe

operators, tailors and painters to the 12th century.

By the last half of the 12th century, the gilds (somewhat like our unions)

were organized and by 1500, Hamburg had 100 gilds, Cologne had 80, and so on.

The craftsmen who belonged to these gilds were the industry. Everything was

done by hand. The craftsmen who owned their own shops were the teachers of the

younger generation. If the parents consented, these craftsmen would take boys

to work for them and train them without pay and the boys would stay in the

home of the craftsman. He might take two or several boys. They were called

apprentices. It took from 3 to 11 years to become a journeyman; at which time

the boy could continue to work for the craftsman with wages or have his own


In those days, there were many slaves. At one time they were so cheap they

could be bought for a pair of sandals. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the

Earls began to emancipate their serfs and slaves. Not all serfs were

emancipated and not all peasants ever sunk to serfdom. If the serfs became

rich enough, they could buy their freedom from the bishop and gain their

citizenship. Dr. Wilhelm Bauder tells us that some Bauders did this, also that

some Bauders were Earls and some were peasants.

Diseases were the most dreaded occurrences of that day. There were doctors and

hospitals, but nothing much could be done when one of the contagious diseases

started in a town or community. There was diphtheria, smallpox, cholera, and

the bubonic plague to be dreaded most. Almost before one knew it, a whole town

was wiped out. In Dr. Bauder's records he often says that all the Bauders died

of the pestilence.

Families were generally large, from 10 to 15 children, and many times 7 out of

every 10 died in infancy. If they lived a few years, perhaps they would have

one or several of the diseases. If one could make it until they were 35 or 40,

they would probably live to a good old age. Many mothers died in childbirth.

Many of the Bauders were married twice because the first wife died, perhaps in

childbirth or of a dreaded disease. The adage, only the strong survive, was

evident here. This could possibly be the reason the German-Russians, or even

just the Germans, are so strong and self sufficient today.

From the year 1500 through 1900, conditions grew steadily worse. Besides the

crop failures, there was economic distress, scarcity of land, unbearable

taxation, unjust government practices, new laws in regard to church and also

to the schools. In other words, they were indeed suppressed in Germany until

people were ready for most anything to better their living.

"In 1521 every able bodied, physically fit man up to 60 years of age was on

the active list according to the defense records in Pfullingen." (by Dr.


One of the Bauders of another line told us that the government took over their

family's button factory, which was their reason for leaving Germany. This fact

leaves me wondering if the government did likewise with all businesses. I

have spent much time researching on this subject, but I have not discovered

the answer.

What about Russia at this time? This excerpt taken from the history book

titled, "The Soviets," by Albert Williams... "The Jews were in Russia long

before anyone ever heard of Russians or Tsars, they were not allowed many

things but in spite of all handicaps, through loopholes in the law, bribery of

officials, submitting to Christian baptism, and sheer ability, great numbers

of Jews became doctors, lawyers, bankers, and owners of factories."

As previously stated, Russia was almost in constant war. They had compulsory

military training and didn't lack for soldiers, but lacked other workers. When

Peter The Great came to the Russian throne in the late 17th century, he

realized her need of specialized personnel along many lines. He looked for

foreigners, mostly Germans. He invited engineers, scientists, and

officers--people that could take responsible positions to build up the Russian

cities and her armies. Many, many Germans went to Russia at this time. In

other words, they were to train the Russians.

In 1762, Catherine the Great came to the throne. She was a German Princess,

but she became completely Russian in her outlook. Under her rule, 1762 - 1796

she extended Russia's territories over large portions of Poland and to he

shores of the Black Sea, transforming Russia into a great world power.

Under her reign, the Germans slowly continued to immigrate into Russia. In

December, 1762, Catherine the Great realized the need of skilled farmers to

teach the Russians farming. She sent out her first Manifesto (a public

declaration of her intentions and motives regarding conditions of settlement)

to immigrant offices in other countries; such offices had been previously set

up by the Russians.

The results of this Manifesto were poor; consequently, six months later, she

sent out another Manifesto containing more privileges than the first one. Some

of the main privileges in this Manifesto were:

. . . Religious freedom and their own schools.

. . . Tax exemption.

. . . Exemption from forced military service forever.

. . . Certain amount of land to be given them for eternal time with the right

to buy more as they wished.

. . . Land given to them, was, generally to be inherited by the youngest son.

. . . Freedom to leave the country whenever they desired by paying back certain


Response to this more generous Manifesto was seemingly slow-paced, according

to available records.

Following Catherine the Great to the throne was Paul I. He ruled only five

years; he was succeeded by Alexander I, who reigned from 1801 to 1825. At this

time, there were large areas of the Black Sea region that had not been farmed

for years after it was taken from the Turks. Alexander I decided to make some

additional changes in the Manifesto, and, again, invite the Germans. These

changes were--fewer immigrants, people that were well-to-do (especially

farmers). These people had to be good agriculturists, tops in livestock

breeding (especially sheep); they had to know how to grow trees, particularly

mulberry trees and the art of raising grapes; and they had to be men with

families. Under this plan, Alexander I not only hoped to utilize this region

agriculturally, but also to strengthen and protect his country against the

armies of the south coming in across the Black Sea.

Alexander I sent this modified Manifesto to the aforementioned immigrant

offices. People desiring to go to Russia made application; and, if they were

accepted, their fare was paid by the Russian government. The journey took

almost two years, according to Dr. Stumpp.

At this time, Germany was at its worst. In the book, "Die deutsche

Auswanderung nach Russland," by Dr. Stumpp, he tells us about some of the

conditions in Germany.

"In 1816 the crops were a total failure--no wine, no fruit, no feed,

two-thirds of the cattle died. Food consisted of baked bread made of straw,

tree bark, and bran. To go with this bread, soup was made of boiled hay and

grass. The weather, that year, was very abnormal--on New Year's Day it was

hot just like summer, and in March it thundered from heaven, just like it

tells in the Bible. May was like February--the wells froze and water couldn't

even be hauled. In June it started to rain, as though it would never stop. The

corn rotted in the fields. In July severe hailstorms destroyed what remained.

That wasn't enough--a plague of moles followed the hailstorms. There was no

harvest, and the previous harvest had been scant. Conditions for the hand

workers were also difficult; there were no jobs." At this time, many people

left Germany for different countries.

Many German-Russian Bauders think their people went to Russia during the reign

of Catherine the Great, since there were volumes written or handed down by

word of mouth about this Empress. There isn't nearly as much information given

about Alexander I, but it was under his reign that all the Bauders went to


Joseph Bauder No. 19, Rudolph's great, great grandfather, went with his two

sons and two daughters when they were quite young. At about the same time,

Joseph's brother and nephew came to America. The whole family was stocking


Jakob Bauder No. 17 and his family went to Russia about 15 years before this.

Jakob and Joseph were distant cousins. Numerous other Germans went at both

these times.

Dr. Stumpp describes the trip like this... "Traveling was a great hardship, it

took two summers and one winter to make the trip as they had to stop for the

winter at Podolien by the Dnjestr River. On the way, they were plagued with

disease and many died. They had wagons drawn by two horses and wagons drawn by

one horse, also hand carts. Many walked on the dusty roads or trails with

walking sticks. It was uphill and down, through field and forest and,

sometimes going up hill, they had to push because the horses were weak from

the long journey. The going downhill was different - they cut large branches

and tied them on behind the wagons and several people rode on the branches,

which served as brakes."

Can't you just see this picture of these several hundred people going

together, as Dr. Stumpp describes, seeking a better place to live--a place to

worship God according to the pure Gospel, and teach their children the same.

CHAPTER 5 - The Bauders of the Past

"Bauder" is German and always has been. However, there are some Bauders that

will not claim relationship with other Bauders because their ancestors were

born in Yugoslavia, Switzerland, France, or South America. They are right ---

to a point! Bauders are in many countries today and have been for at least two

hundred years or more.

Genealogists say that all the Bauders are from one progenitor, which takes one

back a long time ago! Bauder records were first found in the llth century. At

this time, the spelling of the name "Bauder" could also be found as "Buder"

and "Bawder". One "Bauder" might be the son or brother to another "Bawder".

Nevertheless, Dr. Stumpp says that all Bauders stem from Reutlingen, which was

a town and also a Kreis, in the State of Wuerttemberg, Germany.

People have moved from place to place since time began, the Bauders were no

exception. After they moved, they lost contact with even close relatives and

were soon forgotten.

Collier's Encyclopedia says that in Germany before the 12th century, written

records were scarce. The clergy kept records for the church as they could read

and write, however, their interest outside the church was infrequent. These

records were partly destroyed several times. The first time, the church people

rose up against their own leaders and went into the churches and destroyed

papers until they were waist deep. Another time, history reveals THE BIG FIRE

destroyed many more records.

Later, records were kept by the Authors of Literature, who worked for the

Earls. They didn't care much about the serfs or slaves. If these serfs and

slaves became rich enough or educated enough, they would hire their own

scribes. About this same time, the people had trouble over their land

transactions so the "Landregister" came into existence. In the "Old

Wuttembegish Landregister" published by Dr. Karl Otto Muller, the Bauders are

first mentioned.

Dr. Bauder says that the Bauder gents of Wuerttemberg emerge at the end of the

11th century. Through the translation it is a little hard to understand.

Seemingly, they manned the Earldom of the lower Renstal Region and the

adjoining Neckardland. All of Dr. Bauder's records are taken from church

records of birth, death, marriage, and baptism, and also from land registers.

He gives details of these from 1135 to 1417.

Dr. Bauder goes on to say that from these sources and later additions, there

are certain Bauder groups established. The group I have traced is the

"Bauders in and about the Western Swabian Alp," (Alp means the hilly tract of

Wuerttemberg). All these groups have records from many towns and areas.

The group that Dr. Bauder represents is the most complete. It goes back

direct to 1550 and extends to about 1950. Karl Bauder of Denver and the late

Mrs. Addie Pauline (Bauder) Stickney of Sterling, Colorado, (brother and

sister) are of Dr. Bauder's line. Many Bauders of this line live in the State

of Pennsylvania.

The majority of the Bauders stayed in Germany. The two families that went to

Russia that have been mentioned before, went to Hoffnungsthal and

Grossliebental. Both places were near the Black Sea. Grossliebental was near

enough to the city of Odessa that its people were influenced by some of the

things that were not good. Hoffnungsthal was, perhaps, forty miles from Odessa

and the people could still get their supplies from the city, but the evil

influences of the city life did not bother the settlement of Hoffnungsthal.

In some of the records I have received from these two families, it seems they

kept in touch with each other to a degree. I have very few records from Russia

as only a few were ever taken out.

Grandfather Andreas Sr. I had two brothers, Johann (John) born in 1836 who

married Madeline Walkenmuth. Aunt Tina thought that their children came to the

States and settled in Texas.

The other brother was Adam, born in 1840 who married a Dorothea, and that is

all the information I have on him. Grandfather also had some first cousins,

Christian born in 1833 who married Rosine born in 1837, no more record. Jakob

born in 1844, grandfather of Adeline Weston of Sacramento, California, who has

his complete family records. The other cousins were of another family and

their names were also Christian born in 1846, Johann born in 1851 and Andreas

born in 1857. Grandfather's sisters or their families settled in South Dakota.

According to Russian records, the Jakob Bauders went to Grossliebental about

fifteen years before the Joseph Bauders went to Hoffnungsthal. They both moved

from Pfullingen/Reutlingen in Germany. Joseph was Jakob's second cousin twice

removed. Joseph had a brother, Johann Martin born in 1778 who married a Fisher

girl in 1810; they came to the States from Pfullingen/Reutlingen in Germany.

Joseph also had a nephew, Matthaus, born in 1805 who married a Martin girl and

they came to the States from Germany. This family was all stocking weavers in

Germany. Another cousin, many times removed, is Erwin Bauder, born in 1901 who

married Else Rommel; they came to Philippsburg. He was connected with

mechanics of some kind.

Our Bauder line is from places like Orte, Urach, Eningen (Achalm), Neuffen

and, especially, Pfullingen and Reutlingen, Germany. There are "Bauders" and

"Buders" mentioned in these records.

According to Dr. Bauder, "Reutlingen --- in 1467 Conlin Bauder was the

proprietor of the market. In 1518 Johannes Bawder=Bauder was elected one of

the twelve justices. Konrad Bauder, born about 1520 in Reutlingen may have

been the son of Johannes Bawder=Bauder. Johann George, a chemist, was Konrad's

son. He moved to Esslingen and bought his citizenship and declared his wealth.

Then, there were others."

"Pfullingen --- Since 1409 there is material available concerning

Buder=Bauder. However, since 1570 there is definite material of genealogical

information available up to date.

In the deed of the Nunnery at Pfullingen in 1409 appears a "Buder=Bauder. In

the records of the Winery in Pfullingen it shows in 1521 a Hans Buder=Bauder

and a Michel Buder=Bauder, citizens and counsel members or, perhaps, a judge.

In all records there are lots of these gents mentioned.

In 1555 the records show Bastian Bauder as judge. It is presumed that this

Bastian Bauder, who was a judge in 1555, was the son of the judge mentioned in

1521, Hans Buder= Bauder. Also that this Bastian was the father of Michel, who

was a blacksmith, judge, and mayor born about 1570. A definite genealogical

register can be traced from him down to today."

The families that went to Russia were in Russia seventy or more years.

Although these German people lived in Russia, they remained true Germans. They

never accepted the Russian way of life, they also remained true to their

religion, whether they were Lutherans, Mennonite, or Catholic. Dr. Stumpp says

that the German villages were separate, and a non-German could rarely get a

foothold. Most of the Bauders were Lutherans and have been since the beginning

of the Church. They believed in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy

Spirit. Religious freedom was suppressed time and again. For this reason, many

Bauders left Germany and went to different countries. My contacts with Bauders

indicate that many have remained Lutherans through the years. However, there

are many other denominations today, in agreement with the true gospel.

The German villages in Russia were established according to religious

denominations. The Mennonites came from West Prussia; the Catholics from

Palatinate, Alsace and North Baden; the Lutherans from Wuerttemberg and other

parts of Germany.

Dr. Stumpp relates that the farmers were regarded as religious, industrious,

aspiring, thrifty, sober, unassuming and hospitable. He goes on to say that

mixed marriages with non-Germans were rare exceptions; even marriages between

Germans of different religious denominations was a rarity.

CHAPTER 6 - Coat of Arms


Coat of Arms and your surname likely developed at the same time in Europe,

primarily between the 12th and the 14th centuries. By the 14th Century, your

surname had become recognized as a means of identification and it was an

accepted practice to pass it on to others in the family.

During the Middle Ages, the increased use of armor which made it difficult to

identify individuals in battle, coupled with the widespread illiteracy of the

population dictated a need for a means of identification by which individuals

and their followers could be recognized easily. The method devised was the

Coat of Arms, first worn on the surcoat over the armor and displayed on the

shield. In battle, the Coat of Arms of freemen, bassals, and followers were

the same or similar to that of the Lord for whom they fought. During times of

peace, the Coat of Arms became a signature or "mark" to be affixed to papers,

records, and official documents,

When your name took its initial form in the Middle Ages, each court had a

member of the clergy, or a clerk or herald to write its documents, issue

proclamations, record insignias and award decorations, maintaining permanent

records or archives for this purpose. Thus HERALDRY was born.

Many Coats of Arms were granted, of course, as signs of nobility, but a like

number of arms were awarded as marks of individual distinction or rewards for

valor. Emperors, kings, and lesser nobles often made these grants which were

borne by individuals, their servants and serfs ... many of these servants,

bassals, and serfs, later assumed these arms and passed them on to their


In today's modern world, a Coat of Arms is a personalized link with the past

... a decorative badge for individual recognition of a family name that had

its origin centuries ago.

(Drawing:) This emblem is registered in the large book of "Shields and

Emblems" Vol. 5, Section I, page 21, illustration 22 by J.

Siebmacher in Nurnberg, Germany


German "Bau" means building or structure. "Bauen" means to build or construct.

So, BAUDER would be "builder." Therefore the name would fall into the

occupational category of names.

The Arms: Colors and Charges. - - - -


Azure (blue) is representative of loyalty, fidelity, and truth. Since ancient

times when the bride wore a blue ribbon, the color has been associated with

purity and love.

Gules (red) this is the heraldic tincture that represents fire. In military

application, this color represents fortitude. Often the symbolism of this

color is dependent upon the shade of the color, but in general denotes valor,

patriotism, and creative power.


Argent (silver or white) Silver in blazonry is taken from the metal. Denotes

serenity, nobility, and peace.


The man denotes hospitality holding the flower. Issuant (rising) represents

the rising up before you to welcome you. Also denotes a chivirous person. One

who is interested in beautiful things. Whether it be a beautiful flower or a

beautiful building.


Since our forefathers were very religious in their own fashion, the three

roses probably stood for the trinity and as many flowers in heraldry, stood

for faith and wisdom. The rose has always stood as a symbol of beauty.

The bend:

(diagonal division of the shield) represents the shoulder belt of armament

worn about the shoulder and arm.

Any Bauder, of the lines I have traced, can be proud to display this Bauder

"Coat of Arms" in his home, since it is representative of our forefathers!

characteristics. However, in the Bauder records from Germany, there is no

"Coat of Arms" given for our line. The record of this particular one is given.

I wrote to Nurnberg and received the same description that is given in these

records. This "Coat of Arms" was registered in Nurnberg by a Michael Lorenz

Bauder in 1744 who was born in 1720. Just what relation he was to our line has

not been established.

We are indebted to cousin Clara (Bauder) Loyd for our "Coat of Arms." We

really prize it. "Many people are not concerned or interested in their

ancestory; but the English author and historian, Macaulay, put it very well

when he said 'Any people who are indifferent to the noble achievements of

their remote ancestors, are themselves unlikely to achieve anything worthy to

be remembered by their descendents.'" by Genealogical Heritages, Ltd.

This "Coat of Arms" can be purchased through Genealogica Heritages, 1960

Wadsworth Blvd., Denver, Colorado, 80215. It is ordered from Europe and

delivery takes about two months.

Most of the hand painted "Coat of Arms" on the market are not authentic,

because the artists get carried away and add extra characters that are not on

the registered ones.

The Swiss line of Bauders, whose records are given in this book, are from Mett

(Biel), Switzerland. This "Coat of Arms" is registered in Mett as follows:

"Crest in blue upon a green base, a red tower with two windows side by side

and one door. The upper edge is enhanced by two golden stars placed side by

side, each with five points." I do not have the picture of this one. There are

many of these Bauders in the United States, especially in the Mid-West.

There is another line of Swiss Bauders with, yet, another "Coat of Arms."

Their line is not connected with the above, at least back to the 14th century.

The Adelberg Bauder could not boast of a "Coat of Arms" for years and the

search went on. Finally, when Dr. Bauder's great grandfather's safe was opened

to read his Will, they found this emblem. His name was inscribed by his own

handwriting and by virtue. of his office as city clerk, dated June 17, 1837.

It is now in the legal records. Since it was found in Waiblingen, Germany, I

assume the records are there.

(Drawing:) Another sketch of the Baudr Coat of Arms

The red shield has an agile golden lamb plus red and gold ornamentations with

a prancing golden lion atop.

There are many Adelberg Bauders, in Pennsylvania who might be interested in

this "Coat of Arms."



"Now this was tricky - shall we name him

Johann Friedrich or Friedrich Johann?"

Grandfather Andreas (No. 23) and grandmother Christina were married in

Hoffnungsthal, Russia. Grandfather was a German Russian, but grandmother was a

Swiss and had lived in Switzerland until she was nine, at which time her

mother died from a cholera epidemic. Their town was under quarantine, but her

father, Chespoores Ottenbacher, escaped at night with her and her two brothers

and went to Allmersbach, Germany, in the Kreis of Backnang. Her father gave

her to an uncle to raise. His name was George Ottenbacher and his wife was

Barbara. Part of this information is from Russian immigration records. My

husband, Rudolph, remembers grandmother telling him how hard she had to work

and life didn't go too well for her. Her uncle had four children when she

went to live with them. They were from one to eight years old and she was only

nine, she said that she really had to work hard! Later, two more children

were born so there was always plenty of work for the oldest of seven children.

The Russian immigration records do not give the year George Ottenbacher and

family went to Hoffnungsthal, however, we do know that it was before

grandmother was 14 because she was confirmed at the age of 14 in the Lutheran

Church in Hoffnungsthal by Pastor Friedrich W. Poschel. This was April of

1855. He had been the pastor there for several years before this.

Grandmother Christina Ottenbacher was quite a traveler, born in Switzerland,

went to Germany for a short time, then on to Russia for about thirty years,

changing locations there once before coming to America.

Life wasn't easy no matter where they lived. She had learned early in life to

accept these things and make the best of every situation. When grandfather

lost part of his arm, this was still another burden and added responsibility.

Rudolph remembers grandfather telling about the incident, described later in

detail. No artificial hands or arms in those days. In place of the hand, he

had a hook and used it quite well.

Russia was fast changing. Alexander II began his reign in 1855. Backward,

medieval Russia needed reforms. He emancipated the serfs, so they had to have

a new system of local government, the schools, the judiciary, basis of

taxation, new way to recruit the army. In 1871, the freedom of the Germans

came to an end. What had been promised for eternal time was gone! Rudolph's

maternal grandfather, Christian Frank, was one of the first German boys in

their of Arcis that had to go to war. He was just 18 years old when their

freedom came to an end. He served three years. Later when his own boys were

growing up, he decided that they were not going to serve in the Russian Army.

He said to the family, "We are going to America because I am not going to let

the `Grey Bug' get my boys as they did me," so they came to America.

Grandfather Andreas was 33 years old when this new law went into effect. When

Uncle Andrew was 18, he was exempt because of grandfathers loss of arm since

he was the oldest boy. Uncle John didn't have to go, either, and I have

wondered about this, however, in checking the records I find that he was

married 11 days before he was 19. So, they must have been exempt if they were


In 1873, the great Russian emigration began and continued until World War II.

At this time, the United States, Canada, and South America were wanting people

from other countries to settle some of the vast unpopulated areas. The United

States sent recruiting officers to the German settlements in Russia. As a

result, many Germans came to the States, particularly to the Dakotas and to


Our Homestead Act of 1862 makes it possible to get 160 acres of land for only

a small fee by living on the land and improving it. Canada had a similar act.

Elbert County in Colorado was not opened up for homesteading until 1886. Then

in 1889 Elbert County was divided in two forming the new County of Kit Carson.

Grandfather Andreas came to Colorado at this time. Uncle Andrew and two

children came to this County about four months prior to Grandfather Andreas,

who arrived in Burlington, Colorado by train and was taken by wagon to his

son's place.

Cousin Tina, who was only about three years old, remembers the day grandfather

arrived and, further, remembers her mother making beds on the floor for them

to sleep. They stayed with Uncle Andrew while their sod house was being built

on their homestead, which was probably only a mile or two away.

This area, located northwest of Burlington, was called THE SETTLEMENT. It

consisted mostly of the German People.

In 1890-1891 these Germans started the Emmanuel Lutheran Church. Somewhere

along the years, the building was replaced with a new one, but the CHURCH is

still there and Rudolph and I were privileged to attend the Sunday morning

service when we were in THE SETTLEMENT visiting in the Fall of 1968.

Grandfather's sod house was also replaced with a rock house, as shown in this

picture. Only a few years back.. part of the walls were still standing.

(Photo:) picture of old soddy here

They lived on this place for almost 30 years, but because of ill health and

age, they spent the last of their days at the farm home of their daughter,

Dora Bauder Schaals. Uncle Schaal had built them a new house right close to

their house where they could look after them and yet Grandpas' could be by


Grandmother had heart trouble. A final heart attack left her left side

paralyzed and she died 2 or 3 months later. Grandfather died of a cold

infection and advanced age. Altogether they had 49 grandchildren but from

there on, you will have to do your own figuring.

From here, we have taken each one of Andreas' children and given available

information on the whole family down till 1970.

** Clara Bauder Loyd**

(As I recall them being told to me)

Grandfather, Andreas Bauder, was born in Hoffnungsthal, Russia. He moved to

Seabach, near Birsula, Russia, in 1873, and came to America in the Fall of


Grandmother, Christina Katherine Ottenbacher, was born in Switzerland. Her

father was a baker. A cholera epidemic took the life of her mother, when she

was 9 years old. The village was put under quarantine. Her father fled at

night to Germany, with his 3 children, 2 boys, and our grandmother. She was

placed in the home of her uncle, who raised her.

Grandfather was a blacksmith in Russia. He had the misfortune of losing his

left arm in a threshing machine. It seems it was a machine, where the grain

bundles were pushed in by hand, his arm getting into the moving parts, was

severed. I think this was in the late 1870's or early 1880's. Our father,

being the oldest in the family and still at home, did not have to go to

Military Training because of this.

Father and mother were married in Birsula, Russia, and lived there until they

came to America, arriving in the Burlington, Colorado area in May, 1889. This

was their home the remainder of their lives. On November 21, 1935, they

celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary.

My sister Christena and brother Andrew were born in Russia. When coming to

America, the family landed at Baltimore Maryland, then traveled by train, to

St. Francis, Kansas. Someone living there, that had come to this country

earlier, brought them to their homestead site, about 16 miles northwest of

Burlington, Colorado. I believe some of mother's people were already living in

the area. The arrangements for the homestead plot must have been made prior to

their coming to America.

The first things to do, were build a sod house and put down a well, which was

hand dug. As time passed and things progressed, more land was added to the

homestead. Farm buildings and another well were added as the need arose. A new

house was built of sandstone or limestone. It is still in use today., has, of

course, been added on to and remodeled. Our niece, Shirley and family, have

in recent years acquired the place, and live there, so it has always been in

the family.

Our parents came to America for better opportunities for their children and

freedom from military service, and where they could own their farm. Pioneer

life for the new Americans was, indeed, different and very hard, although,

like other pioneers, they made the necessary adjustments without complaint.

The stamina of these early settlers played an important part of the building

of the country we live in today. Drought, prairie fires, grasshopper plagues,

dust storms, and blizzards were some of the hardships they bore.

In the early years there were only small plots of ground under cultivation, so

the hot winds of summer kept the yield small. Many times, it was necessary

for our father to seek work away from home to provide for the family. He

worked at the Arco Smelter in Denver, and also worked as a ranch-hand near

Denver, making the trip with team and wagon, which took about 6 days time, one

way. One time he made the trip home on a bicycle. Some years he helped with

haying at one of the ranches near home. He was also a section worker for a

time. He would plant the crops in the Spring, then go find work. Mother and

the children would cultivate the crops during the Summer.

All their lives they were devout members of the Lutheran Church. In the early

years, they walked to a little church, 4 or 5 miles from home, carrying the

children. The horses were turned to pasture for the day, as feed was often


Wild game was plentiful in those days, so father, being an excellent hunter,

provided the table with ducks, geese, prairie chicken, rabbits and some times

a mess of perch or bullheads.

Mother came to this country with many beautiful dresses, that served for many

years for herself, then were re-made for the children.

Christena, Andrew and Chris were each able to take up a homestead claim near


Our brother, Andrew, served in World War I. I think he was overseas about l

1/2 years, and was in the Hospital Corps.

One by one, the children left home, to journey on own paths of life.

Our parents lived on the old home place about 2 months less than 50 years.

I, Clara, left home in the Fall of 1928, going to Burlington to work. When it

became apparent that mother and father could no longer live alone on the farm,

I made a home for them in March, 1939, moving them to Burlington. Mother died

in 1944 and father in 1947. So ends the history of their lives.

I, being the youngest in the family, escaped many of these hardships. As I was

growing up, I recall the pastures with about 100 head of cattle both stock and

milk cows, There were about 25 head of horses, that consisted of work, saddle,

and driving horses. We had an orchard where there was some ripe fruit most of

the Summer and Fall. We had several kinds of apples, peaches, plums, apricots,

cherries, wild plums, grapes and currants. This seemed like a fairyland to me.

The drought of the 30's wiped out the orchard. We always had a large garden,

much of which was canned for Winter use. We had a good cellar that was filled

in the Fall. We would can 300 to 400 quarts of tomatoes, fruits, meat, pickles

and preserves. Pickles and kraut were often made in 50 Gal. barrels. Then,

there were bins of potatoes, apples, carrots, and squash. We butchered our own

meat, made headcheese and german sausage by the tubful. We always had a large

watermelon patch that seemed to supply the neighborhood.

Everyone at our house helped with whatever work was to be done. I have been

very thankful that I learned to do many things as I was growing up, instead of

being confronted with a job today, and having to say, "I don't know how to do


Our father build a cistern and piped water into the house in about 1914. We

were, indeed, one of the few rural families with such a luxury.

My lifetime has been in such an interesting era. I recall when the grain was

cut with a binder or header, then the steam powered threshing machine came

along in the Fall to thresh the grain. There was our first car, a Model "T"

Ford, brand new, with side curtains to put on in cold weather, as there were

no heaters. Our first farm truck and fordson tractor were almost a novelty.

We progressed from the Pot-Belly stove to today's automatic heat and

air-conditioned homes, the washboard to the automatic washers. There was the

coming of radio, which seemed fantastic, then television, first black and

white and, now, color.

We have many luxuries today. Many of our highways freeways and speedways. Much

of our travel today is done by plane, it is truly a jet age, and the moon is


Brothers Andrew and Chris live in Burlington; Bill, I believe, lives in

Oregon; Ludwig, in Idaho; Sisters Christena, lives in Golden; Mary and Louise

in Wray; Katie in Canon City; Bertha in Denver; and I, in Loveland; these

towns in Colorado. For the most part, we have retired!

To Rudolph and I, Uncle John was the son of Grandfather Andreas Bauder and

Christina Ottenbacher. He was born in the German town of Hoffnungsthal, in the

province of Cherson in South Russia. When he was about 5 years of age, the

family moved to the German settlement of Seabach, just outside Birsula which

was still in the same province, but close to the edge of it. Birsula was,

perhaps, about 40 miles north and a little east of Hoffnungsthal. Birsula was

also about 80 miles from Odessa. If one would draw a straight line from

Birsula to Odessa, Hoffnungsthal would be right on the line at about halfway.

Uncle John grew up in this community and at the age of about 18 he married

Katherina Bietch (pronounced Beech).

When grandfather came to United States, Uncle John and wife and two children

came also. He took up a Homestead not far from the rest of the family. It was

not easy with no crops those first years, so he had to leave his family at

home and seek employment wherever he could get it.

The following was written by cousin Matilda, daughter of Uncle John--- "While

Mom was still in eastern Colorado on the homestead Dad came to Denver and

carried hod for 50 cents and 75 cents per day while the Brown Palace Hotel and

the Broadway Theater were being built. I believe that was during the economic

`Panic of 1893.' They later moved to Denver. My Dad worked at the old Arco

Smelter in Globeville and it was during this time that I was born.

In 1900 my Dad and Mom bought an irrigated farm for $2,000. It was irrigated

from an artesian well on the place, and located 1 mile west and 1 mile south

of Brighton. Andy was born there shortly after they moved. The house was a

log house, one large room with a long lean-to kitchen, with a loft over the

large room. It had been a stopping place for the stage route to Laramie,

Wyoming --- the first night's stop out of Denver. It was also used as a fort

when the Indians attacked. It had openings to shoot through. Indians were

killed and buried on our hillside. An Indian grave was opened and vandalized

in my time of remembrance as a child. The loft upstairs had four double beds,

the smoke pipe came up from the downstairs heater and warmed the room. Dad and

Mom slept downstairs, I don't remember much furniture, only a big wooden bed,

Mom's White sewing machine, the stove, a table and few chairs. One clothes

closet took care of all our belongings, with nails behind doors and along the

kitchen walls.

My brothers were great hunters and they got plenty of ducks and geese along

the Platte River, which ran through our land. We also had plenty of rabbit

and quail in season. We never prospered, but had a wonderful, happy

relationship with one another.

How my parents ever made it, is beyond me. They loved and trusted their Lord

and He gave them strength to carry on through many heartbreaks and

disappointments. May He do same for us.

In 1908 Dad was well enough off to build an 8 room house on that place. We had

four bedrooms upstairs, a living room, large dining room, bedroom, bath,

kitchen, and pantry on the main floor.

I regret to say that the chickens and the farm animals took possession of the

old log house, and finally it was burned down. It really should have been

preserved, because much pioneer history was lived there.

Fred and Andy were both in World War I and Dad couldn't get help so he sold

out in 1918. The farm brought $10,000 at that time. No one was at home anymore

except Elmore, who was a grandson only six years old at that time.

I had two brothers with the same name--William Frederick, who always went by

Bill; and Frederick William, who always went by Fred. Elmore was Bill's son,

but Dad and Mom raised him because his mother died when he was only a few

weeks old."

"The Ottenbacher branch of the family homesteaded in South Dakota near Eureka.

We took my Dad to see them during the depression in 1938. Things were bad

then, and we have not been in touch with anyone since; but I do think that

Uncle Sam and Aunt Dora Schaal were in touch and visited them since we saw


A number of my Dad's cousins lived in Wichita Falls, Texas. and visited us

quite often.

My Mother often spoke of the lovely land in the Ukraine in Russia, where they

had lived-- lots of fruit, wine country, and productive land. She said that

Eastern Colorado was just a bombshell, such a letdown from what they had


Aunt Dora told me about them landing in Baltimore, unable to speak a word of

English. As the train came westward through Pennsylvania and Ohio, Grandfather

Bauder took them to the trail, window and said, "Just look children, at this

beautiful land, and this is just the beginning. Think what Colorado will be!"

You know, Grandfather Bauder had lost an arm while in Russia, but during one

severe winter in Colorado, he walked to St. Francis, Kansas, and brought a

sack of flour, 100 lbs, and carried it 70 miles round trip so his family could

have bread. How proud we should be for such a heritage!

Grandfather Bauder built a rock house for his family, I saw it after the roof

had caved in. My Father and Mother built a sod house, which has also


The area around Burlington is very prosperous now. Big operators have put in

deep wells for irrigation and they raise beets, tomatoes, anything--oil wells

are pumping and the small farmer is almost a thing of the past."

The following was written by Bob Bauder, grandson of Uncle John --- "My father

John Bauder (really John the second) was born near Birsula, Russia, in 1887.

I understand that he came to this country with his parents when he was almost

two years of age. On Christmas Day, 1913, he married my mother, Emily Lutz.

For a time they operated a dairy in the Brighton, Colorado area and made a

trip to the west coast sometime in the 1920's, returning to Colorado and then

returning to Oregon in about 1926 or 1927. After living a short time in

Albany and Argo, Oregon, they moved to the Cottage Grove area in about 1928

and have resided here since. Dad worked at a variety of jobs here, but spent

most of his time working in saw mills and as a construction carpenter. All

five of us Bauder brothers were educated here in Cottage Grove and graduated

from the same.

Brother Art was a member of the National Guard when World War II started and

was `he first called up when the National Guard was conscripted. He continued

to serve in the Army until his discharge in 1945. He entered the service as a

Sergeant, I believe, and served in various forts in Oregon and Washington with

the Coast Artillery. Later, he transferred to the Antiaircraft division and

was stationed for some time at McCord Air Force Base near Tacoma. He went on

the Officers' Candidate School and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant. He

was eventually sent to Italy and spent a substantial amount of time there. He

received additional promotions and was discharged as a Captain. Shortly after

the war, he married Ada Ely, and they have lived in the Vancouver, Washington

area every since. He first was a construction electrician and is now a

business agent for the electrician's union in Vancouver.

Brother Ed, after graduation from high school, worked for a time for J.C.

Penney Company here in Cottage Grove, and was assistant manager when he

changed occupations and became an electrician. During the war, he worked at a

number of war defense plants in the Northwest, but his permanent home was in

Portland, where he resided and worked after the war. Ed died in 1960. I might

add that Ed had rheumatic fever as a boy and this was one reason for the folk

moving to Oregon. The doctor in Colorado had suggested that they get him out

of the higher altitude to the coastal area, where it would be better for his


Brother Harold graduated from high school in 1942 and shortly thereafter,

entered the Army. Harold was a tank man and after training in California spent

most of his time in the South Pacific in combat. I believe he was stationed

for a time in New Caledonia, Bougainville, and a short time on Guadalcanal and

finally, the Philippines. I believe he was a Sergeant when he was discharged.

Harold then lived in Cottage Grove for several years, where he became active

in the Oregon National Guard and was Commanding Officer of the local guard

unit for some time. It was about 1949 or 1950 when he moved to Vancouver

Washington, and became an electrician. For several years, now, he has been a

superintendent in charge of the electrical installations at a number of large

plants that have been put in the Northwest.

Brother John William, who goes by the name of Bill, was married in 1953 after

graduation from high school. He had worked at the local newspaper plant in the

shop part of the business, and has continued to be a printer. He worked at the

local newspaper for several years and then moved to Eugene, Oregon, where he

has worked for a printing shop there for a number of years.

After graduation from high school, I joined the Navy for about a year and was

discharged in 1946 and immediately entered the University of Oregon, where I

attended for 3 1/2 years and then quit in my senior year to go into the

insurance business. By taking night courses and extension courses, I

eventually graduated and got my Bachelor's Degree. For 10 years I operated an

agency of my own, then in 1960, I merged my agency with another and formed the

Bauder & Young Insurance Agency, of which I am still a partner. I have

continued to live in Cottage Grove."

Uncle John's wife, Katherina, preceded him in death by about 18 1/2 years.

During most of those years, he made his home with his son, Andy, who resided

in Denver. Uncle John was a Lutheran all his life.

John the II died in 1957; Bill is now in a nursing home in Longmont, Colorado;

Lena is in Denver; Fred is in San Diego, California; Matilda lives in Denver;

and Andy died in 1948.

The Russian government encouraged families from Germany to colonize the rich

farming area of the Ukraine. This was exceptionally good farm land, but the

Russian peasants were poor farmers, so the government officials thought the

German farmers would teach them better farming methods. My great-grandfather,

Martin Bauder, was among the immigrants to Russia in the early 1800's. The

Russian government gave the German immigrants a fifty year lease on the land

and a promise that their young men would be exempt from military duty. When

the fifty year lease expired, the Russian government raised the rent. Also

they said that from then on, the German youth would be subject to military

duty. This was the main reason so many German people living in Russia came to

the U. S. about the time our grandparents came.

My father, Gottlieb Bauder, was born in So. Russia, which was known as the


When the family left for America, Dad was of military age, so the Russian

government would not give him an official passport. So, for a fee, he obtained

a forged passport from an old Jewish man who made that his business. The rest

of the family left by train for Bremen, Germany, where Dad was supposed to

catch up with them before they sailed for America. Dad started a day or two

later with Jake Schlichenmayer, who also had a forged passport. They got out

of Russia all right on their passports, but were stopped on the German border

by the German officials. They were held there for several days for examination

of their passports and also because they did not have the money with them for

their passage to America. At last, one of the German officers befriended them

and sent telegram to their parents in Bremen. The families wired back the

money that they needed. The boys were then released but when they got to

Bremen they found that the ship with their parents had already sailed for

America. Here at Bremen, they met the Bietch (pronounced Beech) family, who

were also going to Colorado. This family took care of the boys and they

crossed the ocean together on a later ship, then came to Burlington, Colorado,

by train. Here the boys were united with their parents who had despaired of

ever seeing them again.

Grandfather homesteaded near the Launchman Creek about a mile from Uncle

Andrew's place. Uncle Andrew and family had come here a few months earlier.

Dad worked a year in Aurora, Nebraska, for a farmer who advanced grandfather a

small amount of money for his year's work. He had to do many chores which

included feeding about a hundred fattening steers. These chores had to be done

before going to the field for a long day. Then, in the evening, he had to do

all the chores again. When the year was over, he came back to Colorado and

worked several years on the Bar-T (_T) Ranch about six miles from

grandfather's farm. He also worked a few years on an irrigated farm near


In 1897, he married Katherina Fanselau. After a year or two they moved to

their homestead thirteen miles northwest of Burlington. I have the deed or

final paper making this land Dad's after they had lived on it several years.

It is dated 1906 and has the name of President Theodore Roosevelt on it. My

father got his citizenship in 1904.

I was born on this place and lived there, farming with my Dad, until I was

married to Gertrude L. Church in 1927. We lived on our farm ten miles

northwest of Burlington until 1935. Here our two sons were born. Then during

the depression and dust storm days, we moved to Burlington, where we have

lived ever since. The first years in Burlington I drove the Co-op oil truck

from daylight till sometimes after dark for sixty dollars a month and was glad

to have a job. Later I served as manager of the Burlington Co -op for eight

years. Since that I have worked at construction work. My wife has been

teaching in the Burlington school system since 1943.

Both our sons graduated from the Burlington High School.

Donald went on to the School of Engineering at Colorado University. In 1953 he

married Shirley Hashimoto whom he met when they both were students at the

University. He spent two years in the army. He now lives in Albuquerque, New

Mexico, and works as an engineer at Sandia Corporation. They have two children.

Warren became a glazier and is now living and working in Colorado Springs. In

1954 he married Wanda Mann. After they moved to Colorado Springs, she attended

Bethel School of Nursing and received her R.N. degree. They have two children.

Some families think there is nothing to write about if there hasn't been some

outstanding events in their lives, therefore I have found it hard to get even

the simple things in the lives of these families. Most of us have plenty we

could relate if we would just put it in writing.

Katherine Bauder, Aunt Kate to Rudolph and I, was the oldest girl of

grandfather Andreas' family. She had to look after her younger brothers and

sisters and was a big help to grandmother.

She was born in a German settlement in the Province of Cherson in South

Russia. At this point, dates and places vary as to the settlement. One family

has one record and another has still another, however, grandfather and family

lived in Hoffnungsthal (grandfather was born there) but in 1873, the family

moved to the new settlement of Seabach about 40 miles north and a bit west of

Hoffnungsthal. It was in the fall of 1873 that Aunt Kate was born. Other

records say they moved in the spring, so you can see how hard it is to get

accurate records.

Aunt Kate was 16 when the family moved to the U.S.A. and settled in Kit Carson

County, Colorado on the homestead. Times were hard, especially so, since they

arrived late in the fall. It had cost plenty just to move, and with a large

family, they needed money to get through the winter. Two of Aunt Kate's

brothers went to Nebraska to work for a year and she went to Denver to work. I

have not been able to find out just when she went. She knew how to do all

kinds of housework, but the language made it a little difficult. I understand

they had friends in Denver whom she stayed with until she secured a position

at a boarding house. This wasn't easy work and meant long hours. The biggest

problem was in language communication. She couldn't understand what they

wanted and, probably many times was embarrassed; for instance, the time she

was asked to bring the catsup and she brought something else.

She was quick to master the language barrier and was a ,good worker; she was

there several years. It was during this time that she met Uncle Bill Maas, and

in 1894, they were married.

During the first two years of their married life, they lived in Denver,

Colorado, and Bill, Jr. was born there. When he was about a year old, they

moved to Golden, Colorado. They bought a rock house and lived for about 15

years at this place; Fred and Ben were born there. There were several lots for

sale near their house, so Uncle Bill bought these. Then, he proceeded to build

a lovely brick home. Marvin was born there.

Uncle Bill was a railroad man and started at the bottom working up until he

became a conductor. He continued to work on the railroad until he retired.

Aunt Kate and Uncle Bill spent the rest of their lives at this same place. We

were to see them right after Rudolph and I were married in 1928, and, then,

again a few years later. These are the only times I ever saw Aunt Kate.

At this writing in 1970, Bill Jr. has been gone for several years. His wife,

Vivian, lives in San Francisco, California. We get to see her once in a while

when she comes to Washington.

Fred died suddenly last October and his wife lives in Golden, Colorado.

Ben died a few years ago and his wife lives in Golden Colorado. As far as I

know--all the family, except Bill Jr. has lived in Golden all these years.

Marvin and his wife, Marjorie, live there also ... Compiled from notes given

me by the family --- Luella Bauder.

My father, Jakob Bauder, lived in the German-Russian settlement of Seabach,

Russia, until he was 14 years of age. He remembered many things about Russia.

These are a few of the things that were told to me by my father and other

members of his family...

Dad said the winters were very cold. The houses were built along with other

buildings in a long line, first was living quarters, which were heated by a

large stone hearth, this hearth being closed on the living quarters' side.

There was a separate room where this hearth was filled. It was somewhat like

an oven. The door opened and was filled with straw of sunflower stalks (not

many trees in that part) and then closed. This heated the stone hearth and

kept the house warm for hours. The top of this hearth was also used to cook

on. The oven ashes were cleaned out and the bread was put in to bake in its

place, with no worry about getting burnt.

When it was chore time, members of the family went from one section to another

to care for the stock and the chickens without leaving the main building.

When the weather was nice enough that they could go outside, the men would

gather at the town square to chat and chew, sunflower seeds, that is. They

could pop these seeds in their mouths and the hulls out of their mouths almost

as fast as an automatic gun. Many times these hulls were so deep on the ground

that they had to shuffle to walk.

Sometimes the younger folk would have gatherings at a home; these places had

clay floors that were very hard. They whitewashed the floors and even put

designs on them so the floor looked much like our congoleum or tile floors.

At these gatherings they ate sunflower seeds and threw the hulls on the floor.

Afterwards, they just swept them up.

The summers were hot and the winters were cold. One way the house was kept

cool was by doing the cooking in a separate little house. The buildings were

mostly made of adobe (a mixture of straw and clay-like soil mixed in a special

way) and this didn't heat up much if cooking was not done in the main house.

Many of these German people had such separate cook houses when they built

their homesteads in this country.

Such a cook house was seen in this country when Luella and I, with our two

older boys, made a trip to the "Settlement" to see our relatives. It was my

mother's cousin's place. She couldn't talk English and Luella couldn't talk

German, they used the sign language and we enjoyed a lovely chicken dinner

prepared in their outside cook house.

In Russia, the shoe cobbler made his yearly visit early in the fall; the feet

were measured for size and the shoes or boots were ready before cold weather.

If the family couldn't afford shoes for everyone, they had one pair made that

sat by the door, and whoever needed them, used them.

Many fences were made by digging deep ditches and piling the dirt high on one

side; this worked very effectively to keep out intruders.

There were forests, I don't remember Dad ever telling how far away they were,

but the wolves lived in these forests. It was unsafe for anyone to travel by

themselves because of the wolves. The Germans were not allowed to have guns,

only the Russian Noblemen. These wolves ran in packs of twenty to thirty and

made their raids. My grandmother Frank told about the wolves, so I guess they

were all over that part of Russia. The Russians planned wolf hunts, these

generally took place early in the fall. Every man and boy that was old enough

was sent into the forest on foot with only sticks for protection. They were to

scream and make all the noise they could and chase the wolves out. The

noblemen sat on their horses at the edge of the forest with their guns and

shot the wolves as they came out.

Market day was once a week in the town square. People brought their wares to

sell or they came to buy necessities. Shortly before Dad left Russia, he went

with his father, grandfather Andreas, to the market. Grandfather had a cow to

sell, and as he held her by the rope, the bargaining began. First, a Jew came

up and shoved so much money in grandfather's hand and said that he would take

the cow; however, before grandfather could make up his mind, here was another

Jew, who offered him so much more --- all the time getting louder. Dad was

getting scared! Before long, there were about a dozen of them bargaining and

screaming and shoving. Dad thought sure that grandfather was going to get beat

up. However, the cow was sold and nothing serious happened to grandfather.

The foregoing incidents are only a few that Dad told us about Russia. On the

ship as they were coming to this country, Dad said that he and a cousin roamed

the ship together, but before they arrived in this country, the ship began to

seem like a prison. Then one day, someone sighted land through a telescope.

The next morning when they were up, everyone screamed "LAND!" I don't

remember Dad saying how long they were on ship, but my mother said that her

people were on ship three weeks.

After arriving in the "Settlement" Dad helped with getting the house built and

so on. Although he was only 14 years old, he was sent to Nebraska along with

Uncle Gottlieb to work for a year. I think both worked at relatives, at least

Dad did and I believe their name was Scheffner. It seems I can remember him

saying they were cousins. Dad received $100 for the year's work and most of

the money was sent home to help the family. He said he nearly died of

homesickness before the year was up. From then on, he worked at all kinds of

jobs. Cattle ranches were coming to that area--help was always needed on

ranches and Dad worked on several, especially at roundup time. One time he

was gone three weeks on a roundup.

The first irrigated land in the state of Colorado was around Greeley. One

year, they had a big potato crop and Dad and some others decided to go help

with the harvest. I don't remember Dad telling just how they went; however,

when they arrived it was about two weeks before the harvest started and they

were without money with no place to stay. They dug potatoes along the edge of

the field, and cooked them over coals made from cow chips they had gathered up

and burned. I never heard where they slept, but, probably, in a haystack.

Anyway, they survived!

When Dad was a little older, he went to Denver and worked in the Smelter. This

work was so hard that a man could work there only a short period of time. He

was paid $2.00 for a twelve-hour shift.

At the age of twenty six, my Dad married Pauline Frank. The Franks were also

Germans from Russia and had lived "for years in the "Settlement," consequently

Dad had known her during these years. A few years before they were married,

her family had moved to the LeRoy Community which was about twenty miles

southeast of Sterling, Colorado, where the soil was heavier and more


After my folks were married, they lived with my grandparents Christina and

Andreas Bauder, for a short time. This was in the rock house and was near a

creek. My mother used to tell about going down to this creek before breakfast

and catching little sunfish. She said they were really good tasting, I wonder

what they used for hooks?

After this, my parents moved to their own place, which was near the Post

Office in Goff. This Post Office is long since gone. It was here that I and

my sister, Bertha, were born.

When I was three and Bertha was one, my folks decided to move to the LeRoy

Community to be near mother's folk and also to live where the land was heavier

and more productive. It wasn't too easy to move in those days, hence a lot of

pre-planning was required.

Dad rented a ranch a few miles from where grandfather Frank lived. A few weeks

before the family was to go, mother's brothers came and helped move the

cattle. I don't remember Dad saying how many but, perhaps, thirty-five to

fifty head. Later Dad made a covered wagon to travel in. There was just room

for our few belongings. An extra horse was tied along on each side of the team

that pulled the wagon. I shall never forget that trip!

I was put in with our belongings and was told to take care of Bertha. There

was no place to see out place to move around ... but they figured I

could live through it, and I did just that!

Somewhere south of Yuma, Colorado, Dad noticed the buggy he had tied on the

back was missing. He stopped, unhitched the team, and tied the extra horses

alongside the wagon, and went back to find the buggy. He was gone along while.

During this time, the cattle scattered around in different directions, came

close to the wagon surrounding us and the horses became frantic! I was scared!

Mother was even moreso! Before anything happened, Dad came back with the buggy

and we were on our way again. We were all glad when that trip was over. There

were no roads, only trails, all one hundred twenty-five miles.

This rented ranch we moved to was only temporary until Dad could take up a

Homestead. My Uncle Emanual Frank lived near us, and I was his shadow. He

taught me one of the German dialects that I know.

The Homestead that Dad filed on and proved up was only a few miles from where

we rented. As soon as the one-room sod house was built, we moved to the

Homestead. Sometime later a much larger room was added to this one. It had a

flat roof and in the summer, the lambsquarters (weeds) grew all over the

top--it was a pretty sight!

A few years later, we built a sod house, which was lovely, for those days. We

lived in it until I was twenty one, at which time we built a two-story, five

bedroom, frame house with full basement. This farm is still in the family, as

my brother, Jake, bought it after my father's death; and he still lives there


My father was a good provider, however, he thought twice before he spent any

money. We older children did not have any money as we were growing up. When I

was about ten years old, I weeded five acres of cane, pulling out the thistles

by hand. Dad gave me 25 cents and let me go to the 4th of July celebration at

Kelly, about six miles from our place, I spent the money for 1 package of

firecrackers, some pop and peanuts... results---I was very sick.

As I grew a little older and Dad could spare me, I worked for the neighbors

and the money all went to Dad.

Dad and mother lived on the farm until he retired in 1947 and moved to

Sterling, Colorado. In April of 1952, they celebrated their 50th Wedding

Anniversary. The next few months were months of illness for Dad before his

passing in July the same year. Mother lived until 1969 when she died following

surgery at the age of 87 1/2 years.

My brothers and sisters are all in Colorado--Bertha is in Loveland; Emma and

Jake are on farms near Sterling; Ted, Nettie, Alma, and Lenora are all in

Sterling; and George is in Denver.


When I was twenty five years old, I married Luella Crow and we lived close to

my folk. I farmed for myself, and had for several years. We had been married

about a year when the depression HIT. Times went from bad to worse--wheat

sold for 22 cents a bushel and we burnt corn (12 cents a bushel) both to cook

and heat with because it was cheaper than any fuel we could purchase.

In 1933 my Uncle August (Mom's brother) offered me a job at $35 a month and I

took it. By this time, we had our two oldest boys and with four mouths to

feed, we had to have some income. Two years later came the dirt storms,

called the dust bowl of the 30's. During this time, our youngest son arrived.

With another member in the family, even more economizing was necessary, but by

skimping, we could go to Sterling (about 20 miles away) for groceries once or

twice a month. We also tried to get to church in Sterling as often.

As the years went by, we realized there wasn't much for our boys to work at

here, so we began to look around.

In 1940 we decided to move to Kennewick, Washington, where Luella's brother

lived. There was much to be considered- the church of our choice, work not

only for me but the boys as they would soon be old enough to help out--and

this Yakima Valley seemed to be the answer to our needs.

In went our belongings in a four-wheel trailer and we left during one BAD dirt

storm arriving in Kennewick on a sunny day with everything green all over the

valley. About fifteen miles before we reached the valley, however, everything

was all dried up and we were wondering what we were getting into. Milo age 9

said, "Dad, let's turn around and go back!"

We had only $78 and no job, no place to live. We stayed with Luella's

brother, Everett, until we found a house and everything else worked out. God

met our needs. Within a few months, I went to work for Welch Grape Juice


Even then, those days were passed without any luxuries. Within the first two

years, Wayne had badly dislocated and broken an arm and was in a body cast 8

weeks. Then a year or so later, he had rheumatic fever, but by almost instant

treatment, he had no lasting damage.

When Milo was 11 and Gerald was 13, they cut asparagus for the farmers, and

from then on, they made most of their own way with one job or another. Wayne

was about the same age when he, too, was able to get work.

I continued to work for Welch Grape Juice Company until my retirement in 1963.

Since that time, I have not been able to work much because of a deterioration

of the hip joint; however, I work around our place and do what I can. We have

always remembered that the same God that watches-over the sparrow has watched

over us through all these years.



The year I was born was the beginning of the great depression. Although my

parents suffered from many things during those years that followed, we

children lived happy, carefree lives.

I and my two brothers were born on the high plains of eastern Colorado near

our grandfather's homestead. We had our police dog, Rodney, who helped bring

in the cows from the pasture at milking time and was our companion when Milo

and I set out with a large pail of water to drown a ground squirrel out of his

hole. Wayne, being five years younger, was usually left standing in the

distance, shouting, "Wait for me!"

The family had a grand (to us) 1932 Model Essex, which we would take to town

on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning to Church.

We boys always looked forward to a visit to grandfather's farm. There was

always lots to do at grandfathers--whether it was riding the horse, chasing

the geese when the geese weren't chasing us, or pulling the cows' tails--I

remember that Sunday afternoon the cow turned on me and I ran against the sun

and into the fence. I beat the cow to the fence, but the fence took a chunk

out of my lip!! Results--a long ride to town, plus a long wait for a doctor,

plus many stitches! However, these times were compensated for by the love and

entertainment of all my aunts and uncles, most of them in their teens, who

thoroughly enjoyed playing games and, especially, the "teasing bit."

At the age of 11, these memorable events came to an end as we moved to

Washington in 1940.

I attended school in Kennewick and graduated in 1947. I worked as an

apprentice carpenter and then entered the United States Air Force for four

years where I served as a chemical warfare instructor and as a communications

specialist during the Korean War. While stationed in Texas, I met and married

Louisa Gonzalez. We returned to Washington for a short while after discharge,

but the sunny Southland (LaMarque, Texas) was destined to be our home. I went

to work as a Petroleum Inspector for American Oil Co., Texas City. My job was

transferred to Whiting, Indiana, in 1960 and rather than transfer and

sacrifice my family for the sake of a job, I stayed and went to work for the

U.S. Post Office. Louisa and I designed and built a large colonial home, with

the help of our whole family. I have several hobbies--they include Art (1st

Place Woodcut, Texas City Art League and Oil Painting hanging in the Ballinger

Mills Collection), antique collecting, and sailing. As a part-time vocation, I

do piano tuning and electronic organ servicing, and some real estate selling.

I have four children: Colleen Dianne graduated May 1970 from the LaMarque High

School, presently attending Columbia Basin College in Pasco, Washington;

Jeannette Louise, a Jr. in LaMarque High School finds music her greatest

attraction and is now employed as organist by the Trinity Lutheran Church in

LaMarque, Texas; Robert Gerald in 8th grade is a typical boy with typical

energies and interests; Karen Kaye in 7th grade shows much interest in piano

and art.



After graduation (1949) from Kennewick High School, I entered Central

Washington College at Ellensburg, Washington In early April, before

completing my sophomore year, I received my draft call from the Army. I made

another important decision at this time--I married my hometown gal, Donna

Brewer (also attending CWCE) one week before I left for Army training at Fort

Bliss near El Paso, Texas. Why suffer alone? Love made the Army bearable

even without a car in an Army trailer house with platoon sized latrines!

There were advantages to be realized here in that travel in the Southern

States and Mexico was interesting. When my Unit was transferred to Fort

Lewis, Washington, everyone was overjoyed--Donna had worked as stenographer on

base and been stashing all her paychecks in the bank while my small Army pay

check bought the grub and made the payment on the Terra Cruiser house trailer

purchased using my cashed out life insurance policy as down payment. The Unit

was transferred in January, 1952--$700 had been saved--enough to buy a pickup

to pull the trailer house home! Where else but in the Army would you find a

"nutty couple" who would buy the trailer without even a car!

Texas insurance companies were difficult to deal with for a soldier boy way

across the U.S. but after searching the yellow pages and trudging many steps,

Lloyds of London insured us for $15 trip insurance to Fort Lewis! Praise the


It was 20 degrees below zero--that soldier and his wife were coming home--the

snow was piled 6' high along one side of the icy road of Soldier's Summit,

elevation 9,837, near Spanish Fork, Utah. The mountain side loomed high on the

other side of the road. Darkness had fallen and the ice got more

treacherous--suddenly, the trailer jackknifed and the pickup nearly tipped

over on its side, but sat upright as the hitch snapped and the trailer went

rolling down the hillside! Life had been spared, but all that remained of the

house was two folding chairs. Donna recalls being taken to the nearest hotel

(of sorts) to stay while I returned to salvage all the personal belongings.

She says, "It was a long wait in that dim locked room with a few jangled

nerves, sore spots, and a nauseated, drunk man trying to get his skeleton key

in the wrong door!" I nearly froze to death on that snow covered mountainside!

Really, we were glad to be alive and on the road again the next day, breathing

the good air coming home! And this was just the beginning of our life

together that has never ceased to be exciting!

I was discharged from the Service in October, 1952, after a pleasurable year

at Tacoma, Washington. (Incidentally, in a brand new trailer house paid for

by that mere $15 hard-to-get policy). I entered the University of Washington

in Seattle under the GI Bill for schooling and in April, 1953, a much wanted

baby son, Mark, was born in Swedish Hospital, Seattle. He was born smiling,

with his fists clenched, and married life was never the same! It was much


After graduating from the UW, with a BA in Business Administration, we moved

back to Kennewick. A second son, Bret, was born in March, 1955--the Dr.

remarks, "If you don't take this boy home from the nursery, he's going to eat

up our kitchen sink!" First impressions hold quite true--he was then, as now,

a good natured, healthy boy with a kitchen sink appetite!

Yet unsure of my occupational direction, I relied on my carpenter experience

which had put me through early schooling and began building houses for sale,

in addition to my regular 8-hour a day accounting job.

On Sunday morning, December 7, 1958, a very precious baby daughter was born to

us--Terri Suzan. Just what we ordered!

Nine homes were built and sold in order to buy the ranch we presently call

home. We moved to the ranch one week before Christmas in 1960. The call of

the sage and sand and all of God's wild creatures as well as the cattle

operation was a great adventure in living for the entire family;

simultaneously, I entered the Computer Science field at the Atomic Energy

Project at Richland, Washington. After 8 years of working for the other

fellow, I and two co-workers formed our own computer software company. The

computer world took me and very often, Donna too, across the U.S. including

the Capitol grounds of our great country and left us with a much deeper

appreciation of our heritage. (Neither of us liked history)

In January, 1970, I sold my interest in the computer company and stepped out

on FAITH to do some land development I had always dreamed of and found my

greatest satisfaction in trusting God to lead the way.

In April, 1970, another precious baby girl, Sandi Luonne, was born into our

family! After waiting ten years for a baby sister, Terri went up on "Cloud 9"

and, at this writing, has not yet came down!


I attended school in the Kennewick School System from 1940 until my high

school graduation in 1953.

In the Fall of that year, I enrolled at Northwest Nazarene College, Nampa,

Idaho. During my first week of college, I met and began dating Kathleen Joan

Ranum of Valley City, North Dakota. She became my wife August 26, 1955.

Although I knew that God had a plan for my life, I was very uncertain as to

what my major should be while in college. Consequently, I changed my major

several times, graduating in 1957 with majors in Chemistry and Mathematics and

minors in Business Administration and Psychology. As I look back, I realize

our lives appear as a PUZZLE which God was putting together, and this phase is

the first piece.

Our oldest daughter, Denise Rene', was born in Nampa, August 7, 1957.

Our next two years were spent in Seattle, Washington, where I was employed by

Monsanto Chemical Company as a Research Chemist developing synthetic adhesives

for the Wood Products Industries. A second piece of the PUZZLE was formed.

May 26, 1959, our oldest son, Kevin Reid, was born in Seattle, Washington.

In December of 1959, we moved to Winston, Oregon, where I was employed by

Roseburg Lumber Company as a management trainee. This training involved

working in all phases of the plywood manufacturing process. This became

another piece of the PUZZLE.

The pieces of the PUZZLE began to fit together in 1961 when we started our own

business of manufacturing glued laminated beams. The many problems of a new

business were surmounted only by the help of God.

Our son, Derek Bradley, was born in Roseburg, Oregon, May 26, 1962.

In 1963 we moved the business to Drain, Oregon. The PUZZLE seems to be taking


On May 30, 1964, our family was rounded out with the birth of our second

daughter, Melissa Danette, in Cottage Grove, Oregon.

We lived in Drain five years, and the, following God's leading, we sold our

interest in the business and moved to Myrtle Creek, Oregon, to build and

manage a laminating plant for D.R. Johnson Lumber Company.

I don't know how many more pieces God still has for this life but I know that

he has a continuing plan for our lives.

If you, who read this book, are looking for the real meaning of life and for

an inner peace that you have been unable to find, the answer to your quest is

to be found in Jesus Christ!

"I am come that they (and you) might have life and have it more abundantly."

Friedrich Bauder was born in the German Settlement of Seabach just outside the

city of Birsula in the Province of Cherson in South Russia. He was about 12

years of age when he came with his brothers, sisters, and parents to the

U.S.A. As a boy of 12, he was full of excitement as they traveled, not knowing

anything about the place where they were going, but remembering all the things

that the American representatives had told them before they left Russia.

Our government had sent agents to different countries to interest people in

coming to our country to settle the sparsely populated areas. These agents

were to impress upon these foreigners the fact that they could own their own

home by paying just a small fee and living on the place for a short while.

This was called "proving up on a homestead." Besides this, they would be free

from compulsory military training, which they had in Russia at this time.

When Fred arrived in Kit Carson, Colorado, he couldn't help but feel the

disappointment of the family as to the looks of the country because they were

looking for something like the rich valleys of the east that they had traveled

through as they came west by train after leaving the ship at Baltimore. Of

course, the further they came west the more forlorn the country looked. When

they got to Burlington, then on to the country about 15 miles without site of

any settlers, the picture was bleak for even a 12 year old.

Those first years were rough on all the family, but because of Fred's age, he

didn't have to go away from home to work for several years, however, there was

plenty to do at home and in those days, the kids worked.

When he was 16, he went with his oldest brother, Andrew, and looked for work

which they found on ranches as far away as Brighton, north of Denver. While

still in his teens, he went to work for the Bar T ranch which was one of the

oldest ranches in that area. It was several miles to the north of his home.

Things really happened on that ranch, very similar to what we watch on a T.V.

western today.

One time a Mexican was shot down just over a dispute about a pair of gloves.

Many such stories could be told. The Bar T ranch fenced in a lot of government

land that was really open for homesteading and planned to keep it for their

cattle. They were going to keep the "Homesteaders" out. Time and again, there

were guns used, but eventually the homesteader won out. Fred was in on plenty

of action while he worked there.

One of his jobs was to help in keeping the windmills running so there would be

water for the cattle. While working on one of these, the pipes slipped and

came down on his hand. He had two fingers taken almost off; they were just

dangling!. They took him into Burlington and the doctor sewed them back on.

The doctor left town for some reason (but not for good).

The hand didn't heal and began to decay. Fred got so bad that they were

afraid for his life. Someone told them that the druggist in Burlington served

in the Army Medical Corps. and might be able to help him. He was taken to

this druggist who removed his fingers, plus the decay and sewed him up; he got

well again.

During those early days, there was only one gun in the "Settlement". It was a

32 caliber rifle which belonged to Fred and was used by anyone wanting to


In 1902 he married Minnie Fanselau and they took up a homestead north of

Bethune. It still wasn't easy to make a go of farming, but was much easier

than when his folk started 13 years earlier.

It was on this place that all four of his children were born and raised. He

remained on the farm until 1946 when he retired and moved to Burlington. He

served on the school board for the Blue View School for several years and was

active in the organization of the co-op, serving as a director for some time.

About two weeks before his death, they celebrated their 55th wedding

anniversary. He was almost 80 years of age at the time of his death.

Aunt Dora (Dorothea) was the 7th child of Andreas Bauder and Christina

Ottenbacher. She was born in Seabach, the German settlement near Birsula, in

South Russia. At the age of 9 years, she came to this country with the rest

of the family. She was next to the youngest. Everyone had to work and for

even a nine year old, there was plenty to be done. The older ones found work

away from home which helped the family to survive during those years of no

crops and all the other hardships of a new country.

The older ones were handicapped by the language barrier, but by the time Aunt

Dora and her younger sister, Aunt Tina, were old enough to go away to work,

they knew some English. The two younger girls made their plans to go to

Denver and find employment as Aunt Kate did several years earlier. About this

time after their plans were all made Sam Schaal asked Aunt Dora to be his wife.

He was a widower, who's wife had died and left him with two small boys. She

consented, so the trip to Denver was off and, instead, she married. These two

boys truly became her own just as much as the ones she gave birth to later on.

However, their genealogy is not in this book as they are not of the same blood

line as the Bauders. Aunt Dora had 8 children of her own. Seven are all that

are given in these records, as Rudolph died in infancy and I have no record as

to his birth.

Aunt Dora was a faithful member of the Lutheran Church during her whole life.

She was baptized in infancy and confirmed at the age of 14 years. The

confirmation took place at the church in the "Settlement" north of Burlington.

This church is now remembered as the "Old Rock Church". God and her church

were very dear to her. She and her husband tried to teach this Christian love

to their children.

Uncle Sam was also born in South Russia and I don't know when he came to this

country, but he lived in Denver before he went to Burlington. As near as I

can find out, this was in the 1890's. In the spring of 1892 he took up a

homestead and, of course, had to build something to live in. Those were hard

years to make a start, but determination kept a lot of those people going.

Uncle Sam bought a team of oxen, one cow and four heifers---that was his


At that time there were 5 ox teams in the "Settlement." The reason they used

ox teams was because they were easy to feed when they were worked, needing no

grain. If they had corn fodder or cane, that was all they needed. They were

tame and didn't stray like horses. At that time, no one had money to build

fences. Horses sold high and they had to be grained.

In 1894 several of the homesteaders went elsewhere because of so many bad

years. Uncle Sam said, "We had no place to go, we had worked hard for what we

had, so we stayed, knowing that God who feeds the sparrow and takes care of

him, would also take care of us if we trusted Him."

In the spring of 1895, the county commissioners shipped in spring wheat and

gave them 6 bushels to sow. It was sown by hand and then the ground was worked

afterward. By the 1st of June it looked good, but, alas, a rain and hailstorm

came and finished that crop.

It was about four years later when Uncle Sam married Aunt Dora. By then, the

oxen had gone for beef and horses were used for farming. It was still hard to

make a go of everything.

At one time, there were lots of antelope and they ran in herds of 15 or 20.

People would go out at lambing time and catch the little ones and raise them

on cows' milk and tame them. Several people had pairs of them that they kept

for pets.

In 1908 the corn grew about three feet high and dried up and didn't even make

good feed. Then a hard winter followed. By the last of November, there Was 18

inches of snow on the level and at the Schaal ranch there was 3 to 4 feet in

the yard. The snow stayed on and the feed went fast. By January, Uncle Sam had

to sell part of the cattle. Kansas buyers paid 3 cents a pound for steers and

2 cents for cows. Big cows brought $18.

Could we, today, have the endurance to go through what our forefathers went


Aunt Dora truly had a wonderful man and hard worker. He and the boys had a

little song that went like this---

"I got some land from Uncle Sam

And I am happy as a clam.

When I came here to get my start,

My neighbors they were miles apart,

But now there is one on every claim,

And sometimes they want all the same.

O Sweet Colorado land,

On my dugout roof I stand,

And look away across the plains

And wonder if it ever rains,

And turn around and weed my corn,

And think I'll never sell my farm."

In 1912 they bought the William Yale place. In 1915 they bought the Sherman

Yale place as they needed more land for the boys. In 1917 the old homestead

was sold and they moved to the Sherman Yale place, which became their home the

rest of their lives. This was the place where the Yale Post Office was

established in 1891. Mr. Yale was the mail carrier and carried the mail three

times a week from Burlington to Goff Post Office to Landsman Post Office and

then to Yale Post Office. Mrs. Yale was the Postmistress. She was also a kind

of doctor and had some medicine. If anyone had any trouble they went to her.

One time one of their cows was bitten on the front leg by a rattlesnake and

the leg swelled up badly. The cow couldn't walk, they went to Mrs. Yale, she

said to take lard and turpentine, half and half and rub it on the cow's leg

several times a day. They did this and in a few days, the cow was all right.

Aunt Dora lived a full life; in 1959 she had major surgery and from then on,

she had failing health. In January of 1964, she had a heart attack and passed

away suddenly at the age of almost 83 1/2 years. Uncle Sam preceded her in

death about five years.

Today, Sam Jr. lives on a farm near Burlington. He always went by "young

Sam." Fred passed away in 1968.. Helen and her husband live in Burlington.

Carl passed away in 1954, but his wife still lives on the home place of Aunt

Dora's and Uncle Sam's. Dorthy and her husband live on a farm north of

Burlington. George and family live in Denver. Louise and her husband live in



NOTES BY GLADYS WILKENING (Aunt Dora's Granddaughter)

My mother, Helen Schaal, was the third child of Dorothea (Bauder) Schaal and

was born at Yale, Colorado. She was confirmed at the age of 14 years in the

Emmanuel Church, north of Bethune, Colorado. She grew to womanhood in this

community and at the age of 19, she married my father, Edward Knodel. He was a

farmer and they lived on a farm until my Dad retired because of his health, at

which time they moved to Burlington.

My brothers and I were all born while they lived on this farm north of

Bethune. My brother, Arthur, served in World War II. He and his family lived

on a farm close to St. Frances, Kansas. Their oldest boy, Ruben, is presently

employed in Sante Fe New Mexico, in mechanic work. The others are still in

school. Art farms during the summer. Three years ago he helped build Great

Western Sugar factory near Goodland Kansas. Since then, he is employed there

from September to December during beet harvest.

My second brother and his family (Lawrence) live on the home place. He farms

and raises cattle.

I married Jake Wilkening, who also served his country. After he was out of

the service, we moved to our present location, north of Kanroda, Kansas. We

are farmers and have irrigation for a lot of the farm. We also have some dry

land. Cattle raising is also a part of our farm. The children attend school at

Goodland, Kansas.

My youngest brother served in the Korean War. Two years after his discharge

he was called back to serve in the National Guards for one year. Then he

married. At this time he and his family live on an irrigated farm near Paonia,

Colorado. They raise Hereford cattle.

Aunt Tina was 7 1/2 years old when she came, with the rest of the family to

this country. She was the youngest, however, she had her work to do just the

same as the rest. She spoke little of those early years. When she was 14 or

15 she went to Denver, Colorado, where her brother (Uncle John) was living.

She soon found employment in a Jewish home in Denver. This job was more like

a governess job. These people helped her to read and write the English

language correctly. These people also taught her how to do most

everything--speech, actions, cooking, entertaining; they even brought a

seamstress into the home that taught her to sew. She became a very refined


About 1905, she married Charles Klien. His folk owned the Gilpin Hotel in

Blackhawk, Colorado, and Aunt Tina and Uncle Charles ran the hotel for a

couple of years. One day a man came in and she heard him talking German so she

answered him in German, then they both talked English. He told her that he

had never heard a German who could talk such perfect English without even a


There was a gold rush boom at that time. Wages were good and they saved

enough money to buy a five-acre place near Arvada, Colorado. They built a

lovely brick house, bought a cow and a horse, and raised a lovely garden,

however, they didn't stay there long. They moved to Ft. Morgan, Colorado. In

1917, Aunt Tina divorced Charles Klien and he died a few years later.

For several years, she remained in Ft. Morgan, rooming and boarding school

teachers. In about 1926 she made a trip west. She visited her nephew, John

and family, who lived south of Portland, Oregon. During this trip she met Dan

Ramsey. She went back to Ft. Morgan and stayed about a year and sold out.

She then went to Portland where she married Dan Ramsey. They lived in and

around Portland, where he died in the early 1940s.

Aunt Tina continued to make her home in Portland. For a time she looked after

an apartment house for her apartment. In May 1965 she fell on the curb and

broke her hip and was hospitalized for eight weeks. After convalescing she

went to Newberg to stay with her nephew, Robert Bauder. Later she retired to

the Baptist Home for the aged, having surgery again in 1969. Her remaining

months were spent in the Eastpark Care Home.



"What's worrying you? Oh, I'm just trying to remember if Great Uncle William

had 9 children or 19!"



In Western Switzerland there was a Bauder family that settled in Assens as

early as 1429. Through the years there have been many Bauders in this area,

which is the canton (state) of Fribourg. These Bauders were mainly merchants

and craftsmen. They have their own Coat of Arms, which is probably registered

in the town of Fribourg.

These Bauders seemingly have no connection with the Bauders at Biel (Mett),

Switzerland. I wrote to a Bauder in Biel that was supposed to have Bauder

records for at least two hundred years back, but he either didn't want to give

out any information, or they were destroyed. This part of Switzerland also

has a lot of Bauders. It is thought that they came here after the Thirty Year

War (see explanation in back of book). Word has been handed down by some of

these descendants that their forefathers came from France. This might be true

because some of the western part of the state of old Wuerttemburg used to be

in France.

There was a family of Bauders that went to Biel in the late 1600rds and they

had one son,, Johannes, born about 1685. He is thought to be the father of

all the Bauders in Biel. It is thought that he was born in Germany and was

only a small lad when he went with his parents to Switzerland. Dr. Bauder

gives very little in his records, but enough to tie into a chart that was made

by a Helen Bauder almost fifty years ago. This chart was sent to me by her

brother, Alden Bauder, of Center, Iowa. Much of the chart is in pencil and

very difficult to read and only a few dates are given.

We have been in touch with other Bauders of this branch every since we started

this book, long before we had any of the German records. At that time, we

didn't know whether we would ever find out much of their ancestry.

There are so many Bauders of this branch! It would be a real project for

someone to do a complete genealogy on this line with the information that I

give here. One would have many advantages to work with as they would have

census of 1870 and 1880 to work with that I didn't have because my husband's

line was not here in the states until 1889. There are many Bauders of our

line that we have not located.

Johannes (John) Bauder, No. 5, page 151, was a millwright after coming to this

country, that is one who builds mills or sets up the machinery. These records,

handed down by word of mouth from one generation to another, are not entirely

correct. However, I really appreciate those who have helped in any small way,

since the majority of these Bauders have not forwarded any information to me.

This John's second wife, Katharina Gudmann, was a musician, a violinist. The

one son, Frederic Samuel, was supposed to be a famous Yodeller in Switzerland.

Another Son, Godfred, learned the building of aqueducts before he left

Switzerland and continued that same line of work after coming to this country

and settling in Ft. Collins, Colorado. Godfred had one daughter, Kathryn, who

was a musician. She was first a Chautauqua singer and made regular trips to

Chicago in connection with her singing. Her folks moved to Ft. Collins when

she was only 6 years old and she spent the rest of her life there. Her entire

teaching career has been in Ft. Collins as a supervisor of elementary music

and vocal instructor at Ft. Collins High School. In 1968, the "Bauder

Elementary School" was dedicated in her honor. The exact date of her death is

not known, but I believe it was 1969.

The chief reason that induced so many people from Wuerttemburg to leave their

blessed fatherland at the beginning of our century are attributed partly to

the dire poverty and the grievous burden of taxation, partly to the

proliferating new doctrine and the resultant changes in churches and schools.

Among our colonists these innovations aroused the apprehension that their

children might in time be deprived of the pure teaching of the Gospel.

Particular views among many of these people had given rise to the desire to be

as close as possible to the Promised Land, and so their attention was directed

above all to the southern part of the Russian Empire, especially since they

hoped to be able to lead there a peaceful life in complete religious freedom,

without fear of coercion or restraint of conscience.

Several heads of families therefore approached Baron von Stackelberg, who was

then residing in Stuttgart, with a petition that they be permitted to settle

in South Russia. Through this man's mediating efforts, His Most Gracious

Majesty Czar Alexander sent the Russian ambassador a ukase in which the free

exercise of religion was accorded to the applicants.

Accordingly a considerable number of inhabitants of various villages in the

districts of Waiblingen, Backnang, Marbach, Kirchheim, Esslingen, and other

organized two principal groups: the Unterweissach contingent, which was led by

Johann Leibbrandt; and the Oethinger, which was led by Biehlingmayer and Jakob


In May and June 1817 these two groups traveled to Ulm, from where they

continued down the Danube through Vienna, Ofen, Orsowa and Galatz, and reached

Odessa after manifold hardships. During the quarantine in Ismail, hundreds of

them were wiped out through fatal illnesses, and many succumbed to a frightful

epidemic after they arrived in Odessa, so that in many families only widows

and orphans survived, whereas in some cases entire families perished.

Most of these immigrants continued their journey to Grusinia, despite the

well-meant protestations of the Russian colonial authorities and, indeed, of

the Czar himself. Only a minority decided to settle in this colony. Our

colonists were allotted 4306 desjatins of agricultural land in the

Maloi=Kujalnik valley, 50 versts east of the Dniester and the town of

Tiraspol, and 220 versts from Cherson. Here they saw a small village named

Zebrik, consisting of 17 decrepit huts that were still without roof and

interior furnishing, also some building stone and lumber for 15 additional

dwellings. The Russian Crown had planned these unfinished buildings for

Bulgarian settlers.

Most of the newly-arrived settlers were given winter quarters in the

neighboring villages of earlier German settlers, whereas the others braved the

winter amid great hardship in wretched huts. The year 1818 was spent in

preparing suitable dwellings. At last, in 1819, the settlers were able to

begin with the very strenuous task of establishing, their colony.

The first settlement was composed of 64 families, including several craftsmen,

all of whom received a Crown loan of 500 rubles for building materials,

livestock, and agricultural equipment. Subsequently 30 families received a

further loan of 3000 rubles. In addition, our settlers had at their disposal

about 10,000 rubles of their own money.

Thus, in 1819, the actual year of settlement, 15 houses were constructed, and

after another five years all of the colonists had their homes completed.

In a general meeting it was decided that the new colony be named

Hoffnungsthal, in token of the immigrants' hopes for a happy future. The

ministry gave its confirmation on December 2, 1819.

But let us now turn to a more precise description of the site of our colony.

On the one side it is bounded by a chain of hills, on the other by gently

undulating mounds. The location is healthful, and abundantly supplied with

well water. The colony is completely isolated from all the other German

villages, but adjoins Russian villages on every side: Peripljatofka on the

north, Ghorie on the east, Zipulofka on the south, and Kusolof on the west.

Except for 400 desjatins of barren soil that is even useless for pasturage,

the land is generally quite fertile. The top soil is mostly black, humus,

partly mixed with saltpeter and partly with sand. The subsoil consists of

clay. Because of the many medicinal herbs growing here, a part of our land

became known in the early years as the "Krautersteppe," the herbal steppe.

Half of the entire steppe lands are used for the grazing of cattle.

When the weather is favorable, as in the present year, all types of grain do

as well as in our fatherland, especially on fallow land. The spring wheat

often does poorly owing to lack of rain and the intense heat of summer.

Potatoes do not yield every year, but they are often produced in large

quantity and are of excellent quality. Our Hoffnungsthal is, however, not yet

rich in orchards, largely because fruit trees are difficult to develop and

maintain. It is a pity that the life of these trees is so short. Nevertheless

we do produce several kinds of fruit. The vineyards are quite prolific and we

produce several sorts of wine. Only a few farmers occupy themselves with the

raising of bees. The production of vegetables increases every year, but up to

the present this is only for home consumption, largely because there is no

opportunity to market the produce. The woods planted here are still very

young, but with special care they are beginning to show promising growth.

As the colony has no springs, several dams have been constructed. There are

several stone quarries that provide a very porous lime conglomerate in scanty

quantity. There are no sand stones available.

In the years since its founding the colony has enjoyed, with the blessing of

God and the protection of the authorities, continuous growth and development.

Without question it is one of the colonies that offers a pleasing sight to

every visitor. Two broad streets intersect in the middle of the village,

where the nice stone church, with its green metal roof, the surrounding stone

wall and plantation of trees stands out quite impressively. Built by the

colonists in 1840-42, it was enhanced by the addition of an organ in 1847.

The 120 white houses, many of them built of massive stone, have a most

charming setting in the leafy greenery. Almost every house is adorned by a

garden, and the yard is enclosed by a stone fence. In 1837 the community also

bought a house for its spiritual leader, pastor Friedrich Wilhelm Poschel, who

came here from Saxony. A large school house, in which 250 children are to be

instructed and in which the teacher will have living quarters, is now in

construction and will soon be completed. Last year the cemetery was enclosed

by a stone wall and can now be kept in good order.

The population has kept on increasing. The losses caused by people that moved

away have been replaced by later immigrants from the Backnang transport and

from the Marbach Ship, and also by other newcomers.

Considerable losses in human life have been suffered from several epidemic

diseases, the prevailing fever in the early years of settlement, but

particularly by the cholera of 1831, the typhoid epidemic of 1844, and several

outbreaks of children's diseases, such as small pox in the current year.

According to the latest census the population is 860, but if we include the

large number of servants that have come here from other places, the number of

residents would amount to one thousand.

We now come to the important events that have to some extent caused damage or

hardship. Although, praise God, we cannot report the outbreak of any great

fires (in 30 years only 5 houses burned down), we should not fail to make

mention of the significant damage that was caused by the floods in 1822, 1830,

and 1838. In the most recent flood the destruction of houses, cellars, yards,

grain, hay, potatoes, etc. amounted to a loss estimated at 3,000 rubles.

Severe storms, especially in 1822, also damaged several buildings, indeed a

few houses were wrecked completely. The earthquakes of 1820, 1829, and 1838

did practically no harm at all.

The large herds of horses and cattle were considerably reduced by the

livestock epidemics of 1828, 1833, 1844, and 1845. However, animal husbandry

is flourishing, and even the unusually severe winter of this year has not been

harmful, for our colonists were well provided with fodder, indeed they were

able to offer supplies to very many of the needy farmers in the neighboring

villages. Last year an area near the big dam outside the village was walled

in, to provide a safe nocturnal retreat for the young cattle. Here the

herdsman also has his hut.

Farming has become very extensive in our colony, because in the entire

neighborhood much land for cultivation has been at the disposal of our


We have had only two total crop failures: one in 1822 and the other in 1833.

Most harvests were good, some only mediocre. Generally, the prices for grain

were good, so that the colony prospered.

The swarms of grasshoppers in 1826, 1827, 1846, and 1847 did significant

damage to our fields. But those of 1830, 1835, and 1836 caused considerable

depreciation. We have hardly had any losses from hail, but several severe

storms ruined our vineyards. A few months ago, terrible hailstorm destroyed a

large part of our grain. In recent years bugs and caterpillars have damaged

some of the fruit.

We take the liberty of mentioning an evil that has quite often plagued our

village. I am referring to the frequent theft of property. There are few

among us that have not had the sad experience of having their property stolen

from the house, barn, cellar, vineyard or open field. At least 250 head of

livestock, among them some of our finest horses, have been stolen by thieves.

Since 1835 our colony has enjoyed the right to hold bazaars. The market which

is held every 2 weeks in an open square behind the village always provides a

good opportunity for lively trade and is of considerable benefit to both the

vendors and the buyers. Our other necessities are easily available from the

city of Odessa, which is not too far away, nor too close either, so that our

colony is preserved from the many harmful influences.

By and large, contentment prevails among our settlers. They gratefully

acknowledge the kind provisions made by the colonial office for their true

welfare and they will always try to be worthy of this goodwill through their

loyalty and obedience. With few exceptions they are active as farmers and

craftsmen and eager to improve themselves, but they will also gladly accept

the advice and suggestions given to them. It is particularly desirable that

the discipline demanded by the church and the police be maintained in the

future and exercised in a salutary way to the praise and honor of God.

We are especially grateful to God for the inexpressible grace of his cherished

Word, which we enjoy in church and in school, and we pray that He may cause

these institutions to thrive as the true culture of our village, our homes,

and our hearts, so that our Hoffnungsthal may flourish materially and

spiritually to the honor of God and our dear Lord Jesus Christ, to the joy of

the higher and lower authorities, and to our own salvation in time and

In the years 1804-6, at the request of the Imperial Crown, the establishment

of a German colony was initiated on the southern extremity of the

"gouvernement" of Cherson, in the region of Odessa and the district of

Liebenthal. For the reception of the arriving immigrants that had already

reached the seaport of Odessa in the late fall of 1803, winter quarters were

provided in the city itself, until houses could be built the following year.

The colony is located at the southernmost end of the Liebenthal district, on

the steppe river Akershi, which is fed at to the various places by abundant

springs before it empties int. Black Sea a mile to the south.

The land on which the colony was established belonged, so the pioneers

maintained, to the former landowner Baraboi. Various kinds of shrubs and wild

elms were to be seen. The earth was carpeted with grass and herbs.

The colony is 18 versts from Odessa and lies to the southwest of it. Twelve

versts to the northwest it is bounded by the colony of Josephsthal and

Marienthal, 7 versts to the west by the colonies of Alexanderhelf and Neuburg,

16 versts southwest by the little town of Owidiopol, which lies at the mouth

of the Dniester. Twelve versts to the south lies the Black Sea; 5 versts to

the southeast the colony is bounded by the Greek military settlement of

Alexandrowka and 5 versts to the east lies the colony of Kleinliebenthal.

The colony, which stretches in a northerly direction for 20 versts, comprises

(according to recent surveys) 8,820 desjatina, and is traversed by the Akershi

valley. The elevation of the colonists' land ranges from 100-300 feet above

sea level. The topsoil, especially in the valley, contains significant layers

of black humus, on which various kinds of grain such as wheat, barley, rye,

oats, and various legumes and tubers thrive, so that, under favorable weather

conditions, wheat produces thirty-fold, oats forty-fold, and barley fifty-fold.

The trees, however, have no enduring growth. The reason for this is that the

roots cannot penetrate the layers of hard clay and loam that lie beneath the

black top-soil. The sturdiest trees are the elm and the acacia. In some

places the common acacia, the willow, the ash, the oak, and especially the

mulberry, do very well. Other trees thrive also in soil that has a top layer

of gravel and a sub-layer of lime.

The stone quarries that are found about 5 versts from the Village have no

great importance, for they contain only hard _____; most of the building stone

must be bought by the villagers.

There are no woods here, except the plantation started in 1842, which provides

a pleasant sight in the growing season. Near the village is an older mulberry

plantation and more recent one lies one verst to the east.

The naming of the village goes back to its original founder, Duke of

Richelieu, who was at that time commandant of the city of Odessa. He was so

delighted with the attractive location that he called it "Gross-Liebenthal."

The number, of original settlers is unknown; so much is certain--the number

was considerably smaller than at present. The reason for the uncertainty is

that a number of immigrants were settled here in 1817 who received a portion

of the land that had originally been assigned to the first settlers. At the

last census 271 families were living here (833 males and 856 females). At the

present there are 289 families (1,086 males and 1,100 females). The

immigrants who settled here were from Wuerttemburg, Baden, Rheinpfalz, Elsass,

Prussia, and Saxony. The conductor of the immigrant parties was Mr. Ziegler,

who was at that time employed by the Russian government as commissioner of


The steppe-land assigned to the first settlers was inhabited by a few natives

living in wretched huts, in disorder and under slovenly economic conditions.

Besides having houses built for the immigrants, the government granted them

daily food-money from the time they crossed the border into Russia. It also

advanced an appropriate loan to purchase livestock and farm equipment.

The first settlers were mostly poor people. Some were also immoral and

boorish, often lacking in common sense, foresight, and the means to establish

a settlement for their welfare and that of their descendants. And if there

were some exceptions, their number was too small to exert much influence on

the majority.

But let us now ask: How did the first settlers fare forty years ago? Oh, not

as well as their descendants now fare! After the colony was established, the

settlers were expected to cultivate the land. But many of them knew nothing

about agriculture, for they had made no acquaintance with it in their

homeland, but came here as craftsmen.

In order to foster agriculture and handicraft, the government had a large

building erected in 1807 which was to house a cloth factory. But nothing came

of this project because farming and handicraft were still a very primitive

condition and the settlers did not have enough good will to tackle the job.

Thus the building remained unused, but the same year the government had a

church built.

In 1809 an epidemic ravaged the livestock and caused terrible losses.

Until 1817 every proprietor had the use of 60 desjatines of land. However,

when new immigrants arrived that year, each proprietor voluntarily gave up

some land to them so that each proprietor had only 45 desjatines.

Through this immigration it came about that the unused cloth-factory was

turned into a hospital, for among the arriving colonists were a large number

of sick people that needed to be cared for. But the patients were not treated

as the colonial authorities had requested. The doctors appointed by the

government were in collusion with the local and district officials to their

mutual financial advantage. Instead of taking care of the sick, as their duty

and Christian love demanded, they were glad to see the sick people die, so

that they could appropriate the possessions of the deceased.

It should also be remarked that the country did not appeal to the immigrants

as much as they had expected. The arduous journey, the new climate, the

desolate and uninhabited steppe caused many to become homesick. Others

lingered miserably on their sick-beds and died. Others, again, tried to

alleviate their grief in extravagant living, by the excessive consumption of

fat mutton and sweet Greek wine. These conditions may have contributed much to

the fact that agriculture and handicrafts made such slow progress.

At the order of the authorities the still existing mulberry plantation was

started 1815. A few years later grapevines were planted in it. But the

colonists cared so little about these plantations that a few years later they

drove their cattle into them. In 1922 Court Councilor von Lau, who was then

Superintendent of the Welfare Office, ordered the planting of new mulberries

and grapevines, and subsequently the plantations were protected against the

invasion of the cattle.

Through rich harvests and several years of experience in agriculture some

farmers became so successful that they began to lease land. In 1824, however,

there was a total crop failure. Then came swarms of locusts which caused

frightful devastation in our district until 1827. Because of these disasters

the colonists again sank into poverty--and debts.

An earthquake in 1829 caused no damage. The cholera that raged in this area

the same year wiped out only one family. In 1833 was a total disaster. Again

the colonists fell into debt and many families became so impoverished that it

took many years to make a come-back.

The Lord again sent better times. Plentiful harvests and quick sale of the

products at high prices in the nearby city of Odessa not only enabled the

colonists to repay their debts but to store up surpluses.

But in these blessed years many became possessed by the spirit of extravagance

and neglected to improve their farms. To be sure the local authorities were

much to blame when many a colonist squandered his money in riotous living and

other vices, for they took no decisive measures to quell these disorders, but

were themselves addicted to drink and had even set up wine taverns in their

homes. In addition, very many injustices were perpetrated by the local

officials and the inspectors who, in utter disregard of their oath of office,

twisted the law for the sake of a bribe or as a token of their favor.

Thank God that this state of affairs was not permitted to endure too long, for

in 1841 a new district administration came into power, which has its seat in

this village and is composed of men that have the welfare of their fellow

towns men at heart. Also the village officials were now of a different breed

than their predecessors. Through strict supervision and severe punishment of

profligates and drunkards, the earlier vulgar and immoral behavior was

suppressed and the made to restore order and decency.

God's providence watched over the younger generation and many a one was

rescued from the brink of perdition. Heads of families that had in earlier

years become impoverished through extravagance and profligacy again became

strong, and inspired their children to lead a better life. Some have also been

guided by the beautiful saying in our Bible: "Pray and work, then God will

always give," and have thereby discovered that God's blessing makes rich

without effort.

The pest that broke out in 1837 exacted many victims in the neighborhood, but

carried off only a few people here. The earthquake of 1838 did no damage.

Although no very fruitful years followed the total crop failure of 1841, the

prosperity of colonists has increased considerably. A person now coming into

our colony is struck by the sight of attractive, well-built houses,

comfortably and often expensively furnished, and surrounded by the tidy yards,

the large barns, and concrete cellars. One has the vivid feeling of living

among Germans who are eager to imitate the home of their ancestors.

The colony and its environs are at the present in their most flourishing state

since the days of settlement, and evoke a joyful feeling in the heart of the

viewer. Through the constant supervision of the district officials, who

foster the beautification of the colony, the stone walls surrounding the yards

are kept in good condition, gates are installed at the entrances, cinder

receptacles in the yard, and all buildings are kept tidy and in order. With

few exceptions, the individual establishments are in splendid condition.

That the colonists were able to establish themselves so nicely is due in large

part to the extensive farming and to the very useful production of livestock.

The colonists here have the additional advantage of being able to lease a lot

of land from the Greek (military) settlement of Alexandrowka, which does very

little farming. We have farmers here who lease between 100 to 400 desjatines

annually, half of which is sometimes planted in wheat. Others have leased

less land. The huge haystacks and grain stacks that can be seen in almost

every yard give a clear idea of the farming enterprise.

What attracts the eye of the stranger most of all is the magnificent church

which was constructed through the generosity of the Czar. Towering above the

entire village with its buildings and gardens, it is an architectural

masterpiece. In the interior, one is even more enchanted when one sees the

octagonal pillars supporting the cupola--an awesome vault that is above the

alter--and the large veiled window above it. The beautiful, organ, whose pure

tones inspire the soul to devotion and raise the spirit beyond world and time,

has 14 registers. The visitor is all the more delighted because there are only

very few instruments of this kind in south Russia. Beside the church stands

the parsonage, a beautiful building with several furnished rooms. On the west

side is a garden of trees covering about a quarter of a desjatine. On the

left side of the parsonage is the school house which contains two rooms for

the schoolchildren and four other small rooms, plus a kitchen, for the

schoolmaster. Because this building is too small to accommodate all the school

children it is most desirable that another school be built and a second

teacher hired. On the north side of the school there is a small grove of

acacia trees which were planted by the former schoolmaster Johann Utz.

Down in the valley, below the parsonage, is the water-cure sanitarium which

was founded in 1843 by the colonists Sonderegger and Utz in partnership with

the foreigner Floken. With up to 85 guests per year, it enhances the colony

and provides considerable income to the townsmen. The local colonists enjoy

the blessing of abundant spring water, and everyone should be truly grateful

to the Giver of this noble gift.

In conclusion, let us also visit the cemetery, the seedbed of death. It lies

about a verst from town and is surrounded by a hedge of willows. One reaches

it through an avenue of fine mulberry trees. In the middle of the cemetery

stands a hillcock encompassed on all sides by numerous graves. From this

summit one can survey the Black Sea and its bays to the south; to the west one

can see the Greek settlement of Alexandrowka, the German colony of

Kleinliebenthal, the lighthouse, and the monastery of Fontal; to the east

rises the city of Odessa with its churches and palaces; and westward one sees

the mouth of the Dniester and the fortress of Akkerman. If we take a closer

look at the cemetery, we see many graves and crosses that remind us of the

brevity of all earthly things and the frailty "Thou art dust and to dust shalt

thou return." If only we would live humbly under the mighty hand of God and

learn to believe the truth of the word, and work for our salvation with fear

and trembling! For only those are acclaimed blessed that die in the Lord.

This brief historical survey of the founding and status of the colony of

Grossliebenthal was written by the sexton and schoolmaster.

Special Information

The Thirty - Year War

Since this war was mentioned several times in this book and no explanation was

given, I shall relate a little about it.

The Thirty Year War was the last of the great religious wars of Europe. It was

between the Protestants and the Catholics from 1618 to 1648, which was about

one hundred years after Martin Luther, a Monk, who defied his own church and

preached faith over works. He became head of the Evangelical Germans. It was

his followers that started the Lutheran Church. Religious troubles followed

and led to the Thirty Year War, which was one of the bloodiest of wars. It

started in Germany, but before it was over, many countries of Europe had taken

part in it.

When it was over, Germany was in a pitiable condition, half of the people were

dead, whole cities, villages and farms were gone, two-thirds of all property

had been destroyed, everything was in ruin. What a wonder that any written

records at all were preserved!

During the next two hundred years, thousands of people left Europe and

especially Germany. The majority of these came to the U.S., but some went to

other different countries.

It was during these years, from the 14th century on, that there were Bauders

and more Bauders in the state of Old Wuerttemburg, Germany. Some of these

Bauders left, however the majority of them stayed in Germany. Some of them

were able to survive the hardships that followed.

(Document:) Copy of citizenship document for Andreas Bauder



I had the copies of these citizenship papers and planned to enter them in this

book. I found out that it is illegal to have copies so I took down the

information and destroyed the copies.

The following are all I had record of...

Grandfather Andreas Bauder became a citizen of the U.S. on the 18th day of

June, 1901 in the county of Kit Carson, in the State of Colorado. J.T. Jones

was the County Judge, T.G. Price was the County Clerk.

His son Andreas Bauder also, who we call Uncle Andrew, received his

citizenship papers the same day and J.T. Jones was the County Judge and T.G.

Price was the County Clerk.

I have no record of when Uncle John received his.

Uncle Gottlieb became a citizen on the 5th day of November, 1904. T. G. Price

was the judge and also the Clerk and this was also in Kit Carson County,

Colorado. The number of his papers is 247.

Uncle Fred was also naturalized in Kit Carson County in 1904, but I have no

further record.

Uncle Samuel Schaal, Aunt Dora's husband, became a citizen in the fall of 1901

in the County of Kit Carson and the State of Colorado.

Dad Bauder, Jacob, received his naturalization papers on the 13th day of

March, 1914, County of Logan, State of Colorado. J.F. Watts was the clerk of

the District Court. Number 367981. Petition. Volume 2, page 52, Stub, Volume

to be put in its proper sequence. This information that has been handed down

from one generation to another and given to me by Rudolph Mathias Bauder of

Beaverton, Oregon. At this late date, I cannot check German and Russian

census, etc. One thing is sure, Jakob, Rudolph Mathias' great, great

grandfather was one of the sons of Jakob No. 17 born in 1753, on page 53 of

this book. This particular Jakob had other brothers with "Jakob" in their

names, but names were used several times within the same family. This Jakob

was born in Pfullingen, Germany, in the State of Wuerttemburg and went to

Russia as a lad with the rest of the family, which settled in Grossliebenthal.

The father was given 60 dessiatines of land (1 dessiatine = 2.7 acres) around

the year 1804. In 1817 more immigrants came to Russia and there was not

enough land to go around, consequently the government took away land from the

earlier immigrants (until they had only 47 dessiatines of land) and gave to

the new people that came at that time. When Jakob grew to manhood, he made

his home in Neusatz, which was just a short distance from Grossliebenthal. He

bought the "Wayside Inn," which the family called the "Castle." His son,

Jakob, born around 1839, inherited this Inn.

The purpose of this supplement to my book "Are You Really A Bauder?" is to give

you, the reader, a more complete knowledge of the Bauders. At the time of the

first printing many branches of the tree didn't have many leaves. Also many

branches were not located and many are still not located.

After the first printing I figured that was it, and that I never would print it

again. Almost right away people were writing for books and there were no more

available. This made me think that maybe some day I would print it again.

Therefore through these eight years I have constantly been on the watch for

more Bauders. Time passes so fast so decided if I was ever going to do

anything I better do it now. Also since it is a Copyright book no one else

could have it printed. But why print it if I didn't add all this information

that I knew was available now.

in this supplement I have tried to add to the branches that I already had and

then bring up to date a few others. But the real thrill was in locating

cousins that we had never heard of and others we had, but no way of finding


There are two different Bauders in Canada. The one line came to the U.S.

sometime in 1700 but went to Canada in 1790. The other families are in our

line and came from Hoffnungsthal, Russia. We went to sea them this spring and

it was really great.

We later found the Ottenbachers in South Dakota, they are double relation to

many of us as our Grandmother was an Ottenbacher. Also we located the

Schaffners in Texas, they are Grandfather's brother John's daughter's

families. And now just as this is going to press we find another cousin's

family, Carolina Bauder Miller and her father was first cousin of our

Grandfather. Then I have been writing to one of Carolina's + sisters, Rosina's

family, for years or ever since my first printing.

In order for you to understand the Supplement you will have to keep referring

to the main book.

The author hopes that this supplement with it s genealogy and history will

make us realize anew how good God has been to us and what our ancestors went

through for us to live in a free country (The United States and Canada) where

we can worship God as we wish.

Notes from Alvina follow:

--Notes From My Memory-- by Alvina Follmer Woehl--

My mother was Lydia Bauder, daughter of John Bauder and Barbara Karack

(Barbara was his second wife). Lydia was born in Russia or near Grossliebental

Rus. She married Fred Follmer (in German the F is V) and they came to the U.S.

by ship in 1909. They landed in New York and then on to Bridgewater, South

Dakota by way of Canada. They lived there for three years. At first Dad

worked at off jobs. His first job was digging a hole for an out-house for $5.

That was a lot of money in those days. Later he had steady farm work and

Mother did house work to supplement their income.

Three years later I was born. By then they had decided to go west and take up

a homestead. It was late fall in 1912 when we arrived in Belvidere, SD. by

train. Evidently Dad had gone there before and built a 12' / 15' frame

building which was unfinished on the inside. It was bitterly cold that winter

and they suffered many hardships. There was no shelter for the live stock so

Dad put a partition in the shanty and brought in the animals at night.

During that winter I became very ill with an abscess on my neck. There were no

doctors within 30 miles, so Dad took a sharp jack knife and slashed it open.

To this day there is a scar.

In the spring Dad built a two room sod house. The walls were made smooth with

mud and whitewashed. It also had a dirt floor. The roof was also made of mud,

four to five inch layers, made very smooth so the water would run off. The

rains did wash some off, so once a year a new layer of mud had to be smoothed

on. This was done to all the buildings. Saying a lot of sweat went into this

is putting it mildly.

It was in this house that my sister and brother were born. Now there were five

of us.

During World War I, times were very hard. The government sent inspectors from

house to house to see if there was meat on the table. We also had to take

foods we didn't want so we could get sugar, flour and coffee. Barley was often

roasted and ground for coffee.

In 1918 Dad built us an adobe house which had two bedrooms, kitchen and a

living room 24' / 24'. On the inside mud was used instead of plaster. The

floors were of boards and the walls were painted different colors.

We milked twenty-five cows by hand twice a day which was separated by all of

us taking turns turning the handle. The cream was sold and this was our

livelihood during the summer. The milk went to feed the bucket calves.

In the summer when the ponds went dry we had to haul our water from a farm 4

miles away. The cactus, rattlesnakes, coyotes and cattle rustling were things

never to be forgotten. Also the depression with the drought, grasshoppers and

dust storms. On Sunday mornings we attended the Peace Lutheran Church, it was

12 miles away and we went in our two-seated buggy. In 1943 my folks retired

and moved to Alpena, SD. and cared for my Grandfather and Grandmother Bauder

during their last years.

My Dad died in Huren SD. in 1967 and my Mother died in Osburn, Idaho in 1977

at the age of 92 years."

5. Philip Bauder * 1798 (etc.). The rest on page 57 & 58 were given to me by

members of this family. Now I find out they are not altogether correct.

However some of this family (Howard Bauder, Scotland SD.) now have all their

line complete so it won't be given here. It seems very likely that there is

a generation missing and their Philip * 1833 could be the son of Philip *

1798. I am still trying to get more from the Russian Archives. A death has

made it impossible at this time.

I have so many letters from different researchers and their first question is

"Where did you get your information?" They do not think you are wrong, they

just want to know. I am sure that all the above has been researched and is now

correct, Sorry for the mistakes in my first printing but it wasn't all my

fault, many times I had to guess on what was sent me.

(Photo:) Mr. and Mrs. Jakob Bauder, Sr.

So many Mr. & Mrs. Jakob Bauders, one really gets confused. This was written

by Adeline Weston of Sacramento, Cal. with a few inserts by author. Jakob

Bauder was born in 1844 in the Colony of Hoffnungsthal, South Russia. He was

the son of Johann Christoph Bauder, a stocking weaver, who emigrated from

Pfullingen, Germany in 1817.

Not much is known of Jakob's early childhood. The census of 1858 show that he,

along with his two brothers and a sister were living with his grandparents,

Josef Bauder. It could be assumed that the parents died at an early age. The

early years of settlement were very difficult and many colonists perished from

various epidemics.

After their marriage they moved to Neu Glueckstal, Where their nine children

were born. In the colony where they lived, the family was not permitted to

divide the land. Therefore, the father was often compelled to purchase land

from the Russians, at high prices for his sons. So it wasn't surprising, many

more planned to emigrate, when the news came from America, that the railroad

companies needed them to build the railroads and that there was land for

homesteading. The land was always very important to them.

The decision to leave was made., The first step was to obtain a passport. This

was in three languages, Russian, French and German.

According to plan, eight families left the village in February 1894. They made

an impressive group. They were Mr. and Mrs. Fredrich C. Perman, (their

daughter and husband) and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Christoph Perman and two

sons; and the Adam Mertz, Jacob Mertz, John Feickert (another daughter and

husband) Christianna (Bauder) and Adam Schlecht, Gottlieb Oster and the Jakob

Bauder families.

After crossing the border into Prussia, they proceeded to Berlin, where they

had to undergo vaccinations as well as having their baggage put through a

steaming process to sterilize it. After these preliminaries, they went on to

Bremen, Germany, where they boarded the big ship on March 8, and began. a new,

experience; that of crossing the ocean.

After arriving in New York, the group boarded a train for Chicago, and after a

long trip during which they were sidetracked over Easter Sunday in a Canadian

City, they reached their destination and then came west to Freeman, S.D. Here

they spent a week visiting relatives and purchasing horses, wagons and other

necessary farm equipment which they shipped on to Bowdle. On April 5th, the

group of eight families, accompanied by the Jacob Doerr family (this was their

oldest daughter and husband) who had been living at Freeman about two years,

while waiting for the group to arrive, came to Bowdle. From here on they

scattered, some of them filing on homesteads in Walworth county, some in

McPherson county, and some near Monango, N.D.

The Bauders lived on the farm south of his son-in-law, Fred C. Perman in Glenn

Township, Walworth County. They were active in church work. During those

early years, church services were held in the country school, about a mile

west of their home. The church was a branch of the American Lutheran Church of

Java. They retired to Lowry, and their son Jacob Jr., remained on the farm.

Jacob Jr. later sold the farm and moved to McLaughlin, S.D.

Jakob Sr., died in Lowry on April 21, 1919 and Katharina on February 23, 1927

in Bowdle, S.D. Their Children are listed on page 60.

--Notes From Leroy & Joan Schaffner--

"My Grandmother, Maria Bauder, although born in Hoffnungsthal only lived there

for a year after she married my Grandfather, Daniel Schaffner. In 1884 they

apparently moved to Berlin, Russia because some of their children were born

there. It is a short distance from Hoffnungsthal.

In 1898 Daniel and Maria and their 8 children left Russia on November 18 and

arrived in Henrietta, Texas on Christmas day. They settled approximately 15

miles north of Henrietta, and for about 8 months lived in a one room dugout.

After 8 months they moved to the N.E. to a 2 room house. Later they added a

room to the house. They were farmers and farmed approximately 300 acres.

In 1918, Daniel and Maria moved to his father's house after his father had

moved to Henrietta. Later when Daniel and Maria moved to Byers, Texas, Gotfred

their son and his young bride Pauline inhabited the same house. In 1945 a new

house was built about 100 yards from the old one. Fifty five years have gone

by now and they are still in the same location. They were engaged in farming

and ranching. Though semi-retired they are still interested in their

children's activities. Daniel and Maria had a child (son) born here and there

are only three of their children living now. Gotfred, Ben and Rudolph.

There are perhaps 60-70 descendants that live in a 50 mile radius of where

Daniel and Maria settled when they came to the U.S.A.

Ben Schaffner, my uncle does remember some visitors in the early 1930's. He

only remembered this after being questioned about some visitors from Colorado.

We never knew we were related to the Ottenbachers but according to your

information we are getting more cousins." L.S.

Allmersbach/Backnang, Wuerttemberg, Germany. Katharina & Jakob came to the

U.S. in 1889 via N.Y. then SD. Katharina's grandson, Otto Ottenbacher says

that there was a Bauder family that lived 1 mile, east of the Ottenbachers.

family and have located the Schick of SD. The address was for John

Schick of Columbia, SD. and I have material on him and someway he was

related or our family wouldn't have had his address along with other

cousins. I will continue to try to find this answer but it will not be

in this supplement

6. Maria * 1855, oo _____ Duflod is the way I spelled it before in my book

but in my research it seems to be spelled with a th instead of d. I will

keep working on this also. I have located families but not enough to know

anything for sure


This is one of those times that one wishes they could have all the answers.

When the first printing of my book came out we were missing a name and thought

that we would never know. Again we have the same thing. The following families

are from a Bauder whose first name we don't know. The great researcher said

"You will have to figure it out for yourself". He was Dr. Stumpp.

No. 22 Joseph Bauder had three sons and one of these had to be the father of

the following family. I have traced all the other cousins and nothing fits.

So he was either Christian, John or Andreas. The age and the name makes one

think that it probably was Christian, (you figure).

-- Notes By Olga Bauder Hoffman --

"My father Samuel Bauder was born in Hoffnungsthal, Russia about 67 years

after my great great Grandfather went to Russia from Germany and were some of

the first settlers of Hoffnungsthal. My father spoke many times of the rich

soil and the great variety of fruit that was grown there by the time he was

born. They also had grain and cattle.

At the age of 18 he had to serve in the Russian Army. This was about 6 years

and then afterward he still had to go back in the reserves for 2 weeks to a

month at a time. When my parents were married there was a gala time as the

Pastor was only there when he made his rounds of the churches, so all the

couples that wanted to be married had to be married on the day he was there.

That day there were about 100 couples.

My mother was born in another Colony but after their marriage they must have

lived in Siberia for a while because my Uncle (my Mother's brother),told me

that my father and Mother did Mission work there. Mother spoke of the

different kinds of people there. My folk came to America in 1910 my sister

Ottilia was between two and three years old. They landed in New York and went

on to North Dakota by train. They settled in Fredonia and probably took up a

homestead. My brother was born that fall and later died and is buried there.

In 1912 my folk decided to move to Saskatchewan, Canada to the area that was

near the town that was later called Eatonia. Another homestead was taken. The

first house was a sod house which we never forgot even if we had a nice 2

story house to grow up in.

My father was really a shoemaker by trade as he learnt this in the Russian

Army. This came in handy with 7 children. He made slippers from heavy coat

material even for the relatives and also after we were grown. My parents were

Christians, so naturally they wanted us to learn about Christ. Dad would read

the Bible in the morning and we would sing a lot of the good old hymns. On

Sunday morning we always went to church (Lutheran) 7 1/2 miles away. In the

earlier years this was by horse and buggy. On Sat. we went to Sat. school at

the Lutheran Church in Eatonia. It was from 9 A.M. `till 3:30 P.M. We learned

to read and write in German, also memory work and Catechism and lots of

singing. I have never regretted those days. We never missed a Christmas Eve

program. The whole family would get in the bob sleigh, with all kinds of

blankets heated rocks and foot warmers to keep us warm. I will always remember

the creaking of the sleigh runners on the crisp snow, together with the 40

degree below zero weather and the jingle of the bells on the horses.

Most of the farm children went to grade nine in school as it was to far to go

to town and besides most of us were needed at home. When the dry years came I

had to go out and work on my own, my wages were $10.00 a month but the next

year they were $15.00. During the years when the crops were poor we were on

relief during the winter. I remember for our family, parents and 7 children,

we got $96.00 to buy winter cloths and shoes. We also received $9.00 a month

for food. There were train carloads of vegetables and fish that came to town

every once in a while but if we wanted any we had to get there early. No

matter how the fish were fixed they were tasteless.

I married John Hoffman when I was 22 years old and we lived on a farm near

Eatonia, Sask. for the first five years and then moved to the area of Oliver

and Osoyoos, B.C. where we are still living today. Our family are all musical,

Father played the accordion and loved to sing the old hymns. I have played the

Church organ for many years and still do. My brothers and our children and

grandchildren all play one or more instruments." O.H.

-- Notes By Marie (Bauder) Bagg --

My father was born near Odessa on the Black Sea. He spent seven years in the

Russian Army, as a shoemaker. I remember him telling us their diet consisted

largely of black bread and tea. I believe he had two sisters, Susan and

Margaret and a brother Wilhelm. He lost touch and never heard from them again

after the Russian Revolution. I cannot recall him speaking of his parents.

Mother gave me more insight to the kind of life they had. I especially like

the story of their meeting. He came to the house of my grandparents, and

asked my grandfather if he had any marriageable daughters. To which he replied

"Yes which will you have?" My father pointed to my mother and said "I'll take

this one". This is how they met and were married.

When Ottilie, the oldest child, was 2 years old my folk came to America, they

came by way of New York. After spending two years in North Dakota they moved

to Saskatchewan, to a town that was later called Eatonia. The Canadian

government was offering sections of land for homesteading for $10.00.

They lived in a sod house, of which we saw remnants of the whitewashed walls

at the old sight. As children, we often played there and tried to imagine what

it looked like years before when our parents lived in it. In later years they

built a white two story house, in which I spent my childhood. My Mothers

parents had the homestead right next to us and their house was very similar to

ours. My grandparents moved to British Columbia, but I don't remember what

the year was. I do remember visiting them on their orchard farm. I was only

three or four years old.

My earliest recollection is of going to town all dressed up to bring my mother

and brand new baby back home, this was when I was 2 1/2 years old. Our mode of

transportation the democrat buggy pulled by a team of horses.

As children we went to Quinney School. This was by horse and buggy in the

summer. If the weather was too cold or a storm seemed in the offing, my father

would take us to school in a much bigger sleigh pulled by a team of horses. He

would then collect us again after three. Heated stones or bricks, at our feet

kept, us reasonably warm and comfortable. Sometimes in the spring and summer

we had to walk the three and a half miles, as our buggy horse was needed for

work around the farm.

Crops were consistently poor for several years, largely due to drought and

also grasshoppers. Finally in the autumn of 1937 my parents decided to move to

British Columbia. We were on relief by that time. We realized around three

hundred dollars from an auction sale, held to dispose of our possessions.

After filling a small trailer with bedding, mothers sewing machine and other

personal belongings, we began our trip across the Rockies to our new home.

We arrived at my grandfather's house in Oliver, where we stayed for a time.

Dad bought three and a half acres of land, about a mile from town, right on

the highway. On it was a small two room cabin and as it turned out, infested

with bedbugs. With a few well used pieces of furniture from my Uncle's second

hand store, we moved into this, our new abode. It must have been so hard for

mother to do without so many basic things.

My father got a job with the Irrigation Project and also worked in the

orchards in the area. I worked in the packing houses as did my two older

sisters. Victoria and Alex, still attended school. Most of our earnings were

given to our parents. So much was needed." M.B.

Notes From My Memory --- by Elizabeth (Beth) Clark

My folk never talked much about what happened before they left Russia. In fact

I don't even know my Grandfather's first name but by records we know he was

born in Hoffnungsthal.

My folk came to Canada in 1911, I don't even know what port they came into.

They went to Swift Current, Sask. My sister, Pauline, was too sick to travel

further and died there. Dad filed a claim on a homestead and got work with a

company that was just starting the sewer line. Mother helped out by taking in

washings. Later Dad sold the homestead, after he had proved up on it. We moved

to the area that is now Eatonia and Dad bought a farm with buildings already

on it. Wheat price was good so Dad added to that with more land next to it. He

then paid off what he owed on the place but Dad didn't have any schooling so

he couldn't read and this land was already mortgaged and this man took the

money and skipped out.

What do you do when you lose everything - start over - Dad rented a little

place and some way we made it.

Being raised on a farm was a great education in itself. I loved the harvest

time, even with all the extra work.

In 1925 Dad bought a new Model T ford. From then on we went to town on Sat.

nights and to church on Sunday. The fall was always a busy time getting ready

for the winter. The butchering, the curing of the meat in so many different

ways, bacon, ham, sausage and pails of lard. Then there were the barrels of

sauerkraut and all the other canning. Mother baked bread twice a week with

flour from the one thousand pounds that Dad would buy at a time along with 600

pounds of sugar.

My older brothers trapped rabbits, coyotes, badgers, weasels and so on for

their spending money.

We later moved to Oliver, B.C. This is where I met Ben Clark, my husband. We

were poor but I was able to make anything as long as I had anything to make it

out of. I could cook anything. I canned up to 700 qts. of everything.

How time does fly, our children are grown and gone from home. During the

summer some are coming and going most of the time. Even several of the 8

grandchildren are growing up.

We just met our cousins from Kennewick, Wash. To think that we have lived so

close - all these years and didn't know it. Maybe from now on we will see each

other once in a while." B.C.

(Photo:) This picture of my great grandparents, Jakob and Katharine (Abel)

Bauder, as I remember it hanging in my grandparent's home. Their two

sons, Christian and Jakob, and one daughter, Barbara, who is not on

the picture. My great grandparents and grandparents lived in the

village of Neusatz, Grossliebental, and stem from the Bauders who

originally came from Pfullingen in the state of Wuerttemberg, Germany.

The many hardships and experiences that the people endured are

written in this book of the settlers of the colonies of Russia.

(Photo:) My grandparents, Jakob and Rosina (Stoller) Bauder, came to Calgary,

Alberta, Canada around 1905 with their family of seven children, and

farmed in that area. When they were able they came to the United

States and resided in Portland, Oregon. Many recollections of the

stories that they told of their experiences in Russia bring back

memories of admiration and thankfulness of the Christian heritage

passed on to the younger generation.




so decided you too must receive this information and how could I do it but

this way. It has been lots of work but I think it is worth it. When two

members of a family send different dates and different spelling of the same

person, I don't know which to use so you correct and keep your book up to date.
