Andreas Bauder Sr. - 1921
Last Thursday, July 14, Andreas Bauder Sr. died at the home of his daughter, Dorothea, and her husband, Samuel Schaal. He was born in South Russia on the 4th day of December 1838. He was baptised [SIC] and confirmed in the Lutheran church, received a good christian [SIC] school education and prepared himself, by an apprenticeship of several years for the vocation of a blacksmith. In 1862 he was united in marriage with Christina Katherina Otenbacher. Three of his eleven children died in their infancy in Russia. Since this blessed country of ours exhibited to him, as well as to thousands of others in the old country, a sphere of usefulness and enterprise, he came to America with his family and landed in Baltimore in 1889. He was one of the first settlers near Bethune and went thru [SIC] all the troubles and hardships of establishing a new home on the virgin soil of a new country. There was no crop in the first four years of his farming, but after years of hard work he saw his labor rewarded. He was one of those early settlers, who by their hard work and endurance – strange as it seems – helped to build up the city of Burlington and to enrich our country. In 1912 he celebrated with his wife the golden jubilee of their wedding. Since 1918 he was staying with his daughter, Dorothea. His wife died in 1919. He was esteemed by everyone who knew him. He died a peaceful death, being 82 years, 7 months and 10 days of age. He leaves to mourn his death eight children: Andreas Bauder, Gottlieb Bauder, Friedrich Bauder, and Dorothea Schaal, of Bethune, Colorado; Johann Bauder, Brighton, Colorado; Katharina Mase, Golden, Colorado; Jacob Bauder, Sterling, Colorado; Christina Elein, Ft. Morgan, Colorado; his sons-in-law and daughters-in-law, 45 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, 1 sister and a large circle of friends.
His earthly remains were laid to rest Sunday, July 17th, in the cemetery of the Lutheran Immanuel congregation near Bethune. Services were conducted by the Rev. Gehrect. Many friends of the departed attended his funeral. Undertaker N. R. Brown conducted the funeral.
