Casper Bauer and Magdalena along with Treanor & Christian were from Holstein, Germany per 1860 TN Census. They immigrated to USA 21 May 1848 on "The Howard" to New York City.

Notes for Casper F. Bauer:
From Dede(thought to be Cordelia Bauer - daughter of Dettfill Bauer): Grandpa Bauer drew a free-lot in Germany, which released him from serving in the army, and also entitled him to leave Germany. A Dr. Zicknet (Dr. F.A. Sienknecht)had come to America and bought a large plantation for 25 cents per acre and then went back to Germany and persuaded four German families to sail with him to America to farm his land. Grandpa and family were part of the group. It took six weeks to cross the ocean in a sail-boat. This Dr. Zieknet had agreed with Grandpa that he would work one year for his passage but he required him to work three years instead.

Letter from Frederick Casper Bauer to his daughter

Kansas City, MO June 9, 1900

Dear Daughter(Catherine Bauer Guettner)

I received your letter some time ago and was glad to hear from you. I am feeling better now than I ever did but had a couple of falls this winter which caused me to stay in bed but I have been taking Hood's Sarsaparilla and it has done me a great deal of good. I have taken four bottles and it has cured me. I felt very bad this winter with colds, but I have been working in the garden. I feel so much better now. The garden looks so nice and green, we have potatoes but they are not very large yet. I heard from Craigton and the family are all well. Dora is getting along nicely.

John had been under the weather all winter and he looked very bad. He is feeling better now and has gone into business again. He has a nice restaurant on Grand Avenue and is doing very well.

Steiner and family are all well except for Maggie and Walter her husband are in Nebraska, but Maggie has not been well since she went there. There is one of her girlfriends who is out there and she stays with Maggie most all the time.

Cap and his family are well and has another fine big boy. He is about three weeks old. I have not seen him yet but Gussty saw him and said he was a pretty baby. The children think there never was a baby like him. I don't know how the baby boy. The oldest never likes his little brother, but I guess he will like him when he gets older so they can play. Allie is getting along all right now.

Well Treanor (referring to Catherine Bauer Guettner) on my two other birthday, Gussty trimmed my hair. I was 82 years old and I have lock of it for you. My hair is getting very white now but you can still see a black hair or two. I have one for you and Grayton, as you ? ? you can't see me. I ? like for this time and well answer your next letter soon.

From your loving father,

Frederick Casper Bauer,

Write soon.
