I solved the mystery as to who Gotliebs parents were. He was the son of John Thomas Baun (1828-1892) and Magdalena Baun (1832-1900) Also known to go by Thomas Baun. Other children of John and Magdalena included David (married Mary Hime). Caroline (married Christian Eberly), Mary (married CW Krauss), and two daughters, Sophie and Friederike, that died in 1883. Would love any information on this family.
