Re: BAUCH family of Hamlin, NY
I've just started researching my gtandmother's family; her maiden name was Bauch and they came to Hamlin from Germany in the early 1880's. Her father's name was Charles Joseph Bauch and his wife was Sofia Maria Pletz Bauch. They came from the Alsace Lorraine border of Germany with their 7 children. The children were William, Charles, Mary, Sofia, Reka and Minnie. The reason for coming was to avoid the draft of the two boys into the military.
I have no dates for when they came or the year the parents were born.
Haven't seen your website so I have no idea whether my family is related to yours. In looking over your forum message, it would appear that they weren't related. But I shall go to your website.
