So your descended from the Baumeister side. I haven't collected any info on that side. I do have some on the Harry and Kate family including some photographs I received back in the 1980's when I made contact with one of Kate's descendents (maiden name Fesmier) Don't have data with me so not recollecting exactly.

Kate was the youngest daughter of my great great grandfather, James Faris (1822-1886). I am descended from his eldest son, George Kane Faris (1857-1918). I have tried to track down what happened to Kate's elder sister, Adeline (Addie) who married John Dickson. They were last found in the 1930 census. Any chance you have any info on when they died and where they are buried? I have tracked the rest of James's children which was no small feat. Turns out Jame's father (also James Faries) and his grandfather (William Faries) both of Delaware served in the revolution; James in the Maryland Melitia and William in the Delaware Militia. As a result, my 91 year old father was recently accepted into the SAR. The Faris's lived in Pencader Hundred, New Castle County, DE (very near Cecil Co, MD) I still have not identified the immigrant ancestor nor where they originated.
