|I come from a long line of Bauman family members who seem to go back to Johannes Caspar Bauman who is said to have arrived In Philadelphia on the ship the Snow Louther in 1731. This earliest family member is a bit of a mystery. He is buried in the Hereford Mennonite Cemetery. He is listed as coming over on the boat at the age of 7 & also listed as signing the Alligence document to the king in Philadelphia--but this would only be required of young men 16 years old & up--so he would not sign at 7 year old. I think the man who signed the B & C lists is a different Bauman than the Caspar buried in Bally. Caspar would be my 7x great grandfather. |
The rest of the family men in our line in the Bally PA area, down to my Dad (Harvey Ernest Bauman born in Bally PA & living now in Macungie, PA)check out pretty well. The earliest Baumans of my line are buried in the Hereford Mennonite Cemetery, then later a few in the Christ Union Cemetery & most recently for several generations in our line, in Most Blessed Sacrament Cemetery in Bally, PA. There are other Bauman Family members from another branch who have remained in the area & continue to participate in the Mennonite church there.
My Dad is involved in a Y DNA geneology project with FamilytreeDNA.com & a surname project there with the last name of "Bauman." I would love to hear from anyone else with connections to the Bauman last name-- from any of the many possible family branches-- those who might consider joining the DNA study, or those who just want to sort out family links & connections.
