There are at least a couple of cemetery listings online that say that "Eliza Bauder, wife of Peter", died Jan 1866 and is buried in Keck Memorial Cem., Kendall Co., IL.But the question still remains:Is this Eliza Grace Bauder?Could it be another Eliza and Peter Bauder?
One listing says that the Eliza in Keck Cem. died in Naperville, IL - which straddles the DuPage and Will County lines.Someone told me Eliza Grace Bauder is buried in Montgomery Co., NY.HmmmmmEliza Grace Bauder's place of birth I've seen posted as "Isle of Man", but mostly as "St. John's Island" which is what is now Prince Edward Island, Canada.One of the cemetery listings gives the place of birth of the Eliza Bauder in Keck cem. as "St. John's Island".
If this is Eliza Grace Bauder, why did she go to Illinois?What happened to Peter?Did any of their children go to Kendall/Kane Co.?Were they a part of the Jacob Keck "caravan" that left NY in 1840?
I believe that Peter Bauder was the uncle of my great-great-great-grandfather, James Lawrence Bauder.James died in Kane Co. in 1849 and I believe is buried in the East Aurora/Root St./Memorial Park Cem. in Aurora, Kane Co.
Kendall Co. was created in 1841 from parts of Kane Co., and LaSalle Co.It's adjacent to LaSalle, Will and DuPage counties.This is just an "FYI" to show the proximity of these counties to each other.
But,back to Hiram Bauder (1812-1860)!Yes, Hiram could have fit into this family between Minerva (1810) & William (1813).BUT, I just ran across something of interest that gives Hiram's mother's name as CLARA BAUDER.
According to "The Northeastern Reporter, Vol. 19 - ..All the current decisions of the Supreme Courts of.....Illinois.....Jan 11, March 8, 1889", his mother's name was Clara.In it is a case "Van Olinda et al. v Carpenter"Supreme Court of Illinois, Jan 25, 1889.Can't explain what all the legalese means, or just what the outcome was, but it quotes part of his WILL:"I, Hiram Bauder, of the town of Bristol, county of Kendall, and state of Illinois......I give and bequeath to my beloved wife, Mary Bauder, and to my daughters, Harriet Elizabeth, Nancy Catharine, and Melissa, the use of all my property......and I give and bequeath to my adopted boy, William B. Duffet......I bequeath to my mother, CLARA BAUDER, twenty five dollars a year...."
As for the names involved in the case,Hiram's widow Mary Keck Bauder later married John Van Olinda, and their daughter Hattie married John T. Carpenter.Nowhere that I can see does it mention a date of the will, or indication when it was probated, etc., but we do know that Hiram died in Oct. 1860 at the age of 48 years.
I have so far come up empty trying to find anyone named Clara Bauder in either New York, or Illinois in the 1850 or 1860 census.I'll keep searching.Perhaps her name was transcribed into the record incorrectly?Maybe "Clara" is a shortened version of "Clarissa"?
