I have been desperately trying to link up with info on my Gerben side. This is a long shot but here goes Benjamin Franklin Bauer b. 12-7-1890 d. 10-18-1962 mother was a Gerben and her sister was Nellie his father's name is not listed but his paternal aunt was May Bauer who married Paul Brauer and his Paternal uncle was Richard Bauer. All of these families lived in the Roland Park, MD.
Any assitance would help. This is information passed to my mother by her second cousin Marion Bauer Barker (nickname: Brownie)
