Death: Jan. 1, 1894

Leonhard (Leonard) was the 8th and youngest child of John Jacob Bahr of Leimen, Germany. He was the grandson of John Michael Baer, the great grandson of Conrad F. Baer and gg grandson of Joh. Martin Baer (born c. 1697), of Gelsheim/Main Franchen, Germany. He had seven other siblings, including older brother, Frederick John Bahr [see memorial].

Leonard immigrated c. 1864, staying briefly with his older sister Anna Margaretha Bahr Stutz (and her family) in Long Island, at approx. the same time his older brother Frederick J. Bahr (and his family) were leaving his sister's home for PA.

On March 8, 1865, Leonard opted to substitute in the 35th NJ Infantry -- Private, Company C. His payment as a substitute would have afforded him a round fare boat trip to Leimen. He was discharged from the Civil War in five months (July 5, 1865), from the U.S. Army Hospital at Fairfax Seminary in VA. Circa 1867, Leonard went back to Leimen to get Christina Stutz [see memorial], and bring her to NY to marry. He was 26 when married.

Family legend says that Leonard might have visited Upper Sandusky, OH with his brother Frederick, but that legend would now be error.

His residence in 1880 was W. 35th St., Manhattan.

According to military records, Leonard's occupation was as a miller. After returning to New York from Leimen, Leonard's occupation in 1893 was as an elevated RR platform attendant.

Leonard and Christina had two daughters, Matilda and Caroline.

Leonard was described as being 5'4 1/2" with light complexion, gray eyes and dark hair. Christina survived her husband, who died at age 50 of pulmonary edema, heart failure and chronic nephritis.
