In researching my Bauder family, I came across information on the internet about a LCDR/Capt USNJames Reginald Bauder and tried to research his family further.
Capt Bauder was born May 17, 1931 in Los Angeles Co., CA.He was listed as MIA in North Vietnam in Sept 1966 at which time his home of record was La Canada, CA.His status was changed to "Died while missing" in 1978, although it's possible that he is still being held as a POW somewhere in southeast Asia, along with many other Vietnam era MIAs.
I believe Capt Bauder's mother was Dorothy Gertrude Shirk Bauder b. 1902 in Iowa.She died in Tulare Co., CA in June 1986.He may have had a sister named Jane, plus a younger brother named John who died at the age of 2 years old.What I am especially interested in learning at this point is the identity of Capt Bauder's father.Does anyone here know his name?
My goals is to figure out if this family is related to my Bauder kin who resided in Tulare Co., CA where Capt Bauder's mother died.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
