Lebanon County, PA Baumgardners
Posted by: Walker Baumgardner (ID *****3621) Date: August 14, 2006 at 07:46:59
  of 821

I received the following information from a cousin in Ohio on Baumgardners who lived in Lebanon Co., PA which led me to search the census on the internet, along with any other data I could find. "The Baumgardner family in Ohio came from Palmyra, Lebanon County, PA. At that place there appear to have been seven brothers and two sisters. Many of the families changed the name to Bomgardner."

I. Peter, b.C. 1813
II. Michael, b.C. 1821, died in a CA veterans home.
III.John, b.1804, my gg grandfather, moved to Summit Co, OH
IV. Samuel, b.C.1816,m. Sarah Kratzer, bur.Gravel Hill Cem.
V. Thomas, b.C.1819, m. Rebecca Miller
VI. George, b.C.1810,m. Margaret Rebecca Zerger
VII.Jacob, b.C.1808,m. Catharine Getz
VIII.Lydia, b.C.1824, m Daniel Kuntz
IX. Polly, m. Albert Balthaser

Some were earlier called Bumgard(t)ner, some later called Baumgardner.

My gg grandfather, John,b. 1804, mar. Elizabeth Hershey, had 3 ch., moved to Ohio, where they had 9 more ch.Both are buried in Summit Co., Ohio.

Brother, Peter, b.1813, also moved to Ohio, m. Jane Allen, had 4 ch. Jane died, Peter m. Achsah Deming,no ch. Buried in Huron Co.,OH

Michael, b. 1821, m. Lucetta Faust,3 ch. born in Lebanon Co., PA, moved to LaSalle Co., IL, 3 ch. born there, moved to Kansas, finally moved to Placer & Sutter Cos., CA. Michael was a Civil War Union soldier and lived out his life in the Veterans' Home of CA in Napa Co.

Apparently, the other siblings mar. and lived their lives in Lebanon Co., PA and surrounding area and most went by the name, Bomgardner. Most if not all belonged to the United Bretheren Church and were major contributors. These nine B(au)omgardners are supposedly brothers and sisters, parents unknown! HELP NEEDED!!!
