Dennis, You said you have done alot of work on the family. Do you have a George Bauer md Elisabeth Bittner. Hutchinson County shows delayed births of Theophil Emmanuel 1898 and Lea 1895. I have not had read the census films for this area yet. Eliz/sabeth was born in 1865-1868, we are guessing here.
Elizabeth was my great grandmother's sibling. They came from Gluckstal colonies. Valltin Bittner was from Cassel by the census and Carolina Lud was from the colonies. Gary Cady
