William Allen Baumgartner,was born in New Orleans in 1864 to Rudolph Baumgartner, dob: 11/12/1827 in Weiach, Zurich, Switzerlandand Seraphina Hepp, dob: Oct 1826 in Havana, Cuba.William has at least the following siblings (all born in New Orleans) Arabela Anna, dob: 1849 (married Edward Pfeil/Pfiel), Benjamin, dob: 1855 (married Emma J.

William had at least 4 other siblings that died as infants or I can not find any record of them at this time.
Rudolph was probably the son of Johannes/John and Anna Pfund and came to NO in 1836 aboard the ship "Criterion". Don't know who Seraphina's parents were, but her census records state that she immigrated in 1831 from Cuba.
