Thanks! You can write me if you want, but I was at a dead end and know very little about the Bauders. I do know that Joseph had a severe drinking problem and worked for the railroad in Allentown, PA. He and Mary had 10 children. Mary Bauder was a wonderful, sweet woman who basically raised the kids. Some of the older kids would do odd jobs around the railroad to raise a little money to help the family out. Sounds like a difficult life. I know there are other German families in the Eastman line.
I welcome any mail regarding the Bauders/Eastmans!
