My Grandmother's maiden name was Bauer. Her full name was Karolina Bauer and she was born in Gussing, Burganland, Austria, in 1886. She and my Grandfather, Franz Lofler (Frank Loeffler) came to America to marry because she was Catholic and he was Protestant. They arrived in the Allentown, PA, area in 1905, lived in Philadelphia for a few years before settling in Lansdale, PA, and raising their 12 children. My Aunt Lena told me that several of Karolina's sisters came to America and lived in the Lehigh Valley in PA but I have not contacted them.
