Looking for info about John Jacob (used this name) Bauer, Jr, son of John Jacob Bauer & Maria Catherine Ebert from Lembach (near Wissembourg), Bas-Rhin, Alsace. Family immigrated c1830-1832, settled in Eden, Erie Co, NY. J Jacob was the oldest child in the family, born January 8, 1815. He had 10 siblings. Family stories say J Jacob Bauer "went west."No trace of him still in Eden, NY in 1850, per census. Is anyone reading this descended from this man? Name might have become "Bower" or variation? Anyone have Bauer roots in Lembach, Alsace?
