I am interested to know if an Elizabeth Baumgartner appears in your book. According to her Oregon death certificate, dated March 18, 1898, she was born in Lawrenceburg, Indiana of Swiss parents. She died at 62 years of age which puts her birth at app. 1836 - this, however, may be a bit early for your book. Elizabeth later married Henry Schneider and her son, John, my great-grandfather, was born in Omaha, Nebraska.
