When William Gordon BACHMAN was born on September 20, 1822, in Georgia, his father, John BACHMAN, was 47 and his mother, Mary Catherine Barbara BINNICKER, was 44. He married Caroline GREENE in 1847 in Jackson, Alabama. They had 12 children in 38 years. He died on December 5, 1882, in McDade, Texas, at the age of 60, and was buried in Ridgeway Cemetery, Paige, Texas.

Ancestors of the Bachman's buried in Ridgeway Cemetery came to the U.S. from Switzerland. Their surname was Baughman. This was later changed to Bauchman and then to Bachman. The Bauchman spelling was used at various times by William Gordon Bachman and his son John Washington Bachman. John Bachman's original marriage certificate with Francis Candlish shows some variations. On it he signs his name in two different places, once as Bauchman and once as Bachman. Bachman became the common usage by all family members.
