Re: Karl Bauermann
Thank you for your message about Karl Bauermann. He was my grandfather. His full name is Karl Wilhelm Bauermann. He was born May 17 1887 in Rettkowen/Neidenburg Germany. He was married in Gelsenkirchen. Date unknown, to Johanna Maria (Simanski or Sysmanski) Schiemann.His father was Christof Bartowski (there was a name change in the early 1900s from Bartowski to Bauermann) Karl came to the U.S. in the early 1930s.My cousin also Karl Bauerman. Karl Wilhelm had 2 children Hildegard Johanna Bauermann, My Mother, and Karl Bauermann born in 1913 and 1911 respectively.There are some Bielskis that are related in that time area. There appears there could be some relationship except for the name changes . I have obtained the church records back to the 1800s. Thank you for the interest.
