I received the following information from a cousin in Ohio on Baumgardners who lived in Lebanon Co., PA which led me to search the census on the internet, along with any other data I could find. "The Baumgardner family in Ohio came from Palmyra, Lebanon County, PA. At that place there appear to have been seven brothers and two sisters. Many of the families changed the name to Bomgardner."

Most if not all belonged to the United Bretheren Church and were major contributors.These nine B(au)omgardners are supposedly brothers and sisters, parents unknown!HELP NEEDED!!!
