A native of Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany, Mr. Bausman was born Aug. 17, 1823; was given a good education in the schools of his native Empire, and reared in the doctrines of the Lutheran Church, in which he was confirmed at the age of fourteen years. Ten years later he met his first great affliction in the death of his mother; and the year following in 1849, set out for America. He was accompanied by his brother Phillip, they coming directly to this county, of which the latter also became a prominent resident, and later Deputy Sheriff. Two sisters had preceded them to the New World and located in this county.

Mr. Bausman first employed himself as a farm-laborer in Guilford Township, having in view in due time the establishment of a home of his own; for he had been betrothed in his native Germany to Miss Mary Casper, who came to America in 1849, and they were married in Guilford Township, April, 1853. This lady was the daughter of Paul Casper, and was born not far from the childhood home of her husband in Hesse-Darmstadt. Our subject, after his marriage, purchased thirty acres of land, which is now included in his present farm, and upon this the young people settled, and thereafter labored with one mutual purpose in the building up of a home. Ten children came to bless their congenial union, and the mother passed away Sept. 17, 1887, at the age of sixty-one years. Their eldest daughter, Mary, and the next child, Phillip, died in infancy. Henry died at the age of four years; Charles, Monteine, Nicholas, and George lived in Jo Daviess County, Ill.; John died when a promising young man of twenty-six years; Lawrence, Iona, and Louis are in Guilford Township; Jacob died in infancy; Charles is engaged in silver mining near Butte City, Mont.; he married Miss Lucy Roy [sic, Mrs. Lucy (Webb) Royce], of Butte City, Mont. Nicholas, Jr. married Miss Katie Hebenstreit; they have two children named May and Clement; and he has charge of the farm; and Lawrence is farming in Grundy County, Iowa; George married Miss Rachel Miller, and is farming in Guilford Township; they have three children Nicholas, George and John. Lawrence married Miss Minnie Buitz, and is the father of one child, Rosa Bell.
