This is the information that I have on George Bauer of Butler County, PA who married Catherine Smith (Schmidt).This information came from one of my father's cousins.
George Bauer was the son of Peter Bauer.
Peter Bauer m. Anna Deer.Peter was born in Darnstadt, Germany in 1803.They came first to Maryland then to Jefferson Township, Butler County, PA in 1846. Children: Catherine - m. Charles Krumpe; William, Conrad; Henry; George; Benjamin; Philip; Elizabeth m. William Liethold.

George and Catherine lived in Jefferson Twp, later Butler Twp. Was a veteran of the Civil War.Enlisted in Co. K, in battles of Fredericksburgh and Chancellersville (slightly wounded).
Peter Bauer's sons were extensive contractors and buildres.They were builders of St. Marks Lutheran Church in Butler which was dedicated in 1881.That church has now been replaced on the same location as of 1954 dedication.
I hope this will be of value to you.This is not my direct line.I am a descendant of Peter Bauer's brother Adam Frederick Bauer.
