Jacob Baur/Bower + Magdaline/Magdalene Family of Wyoming Co., NY

Jacob Baur/Bower + Magdaline/Magdalene Family of Wyoming Co., NY

Posted: 1527866652000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Bauer, Bower, Hoover, Colburn
I need help nailing down an ancestor. My great grandfather married in 1899 in PA a Caroline Elizabeth Hoover. The info on record puts his birth year around 1863 and his parents as Jacob and Magdalene/Magdaline. I see a Jacob and Magdaline in Wyoming county, NY in the 1880 census with several children but no Henry is listed. But if his 1863 birth year is correct, Henry was old enough to be out of his parent's home during 1880 to go work or pursue other endeavors. I have a mystery on my hands hunting down the correct Henry that is my ancestor because between Erie county, NY, Wyoming county, NY, and Clearfield county, PA there are a ton of Henry Bauer guys. Also complicating matters is the variations of spelling of the last name. I have a lot more info I can share but be prepared for a complicated and sordid story. What would really help is finding a DNA match to this line. I've completed an Ancestry DNA kit and so has my mother (this line is my mother's line). Please reach out so we can compare notes if this might be your family. Respond here or email me at sensible01@yahoo.com (sensible zero one at yahoo dot com).

The family is in the 1870 census in Attica, Wyoming County, NY indexed under the last name Beans. When you actually look at the census the spelling of the name looks like Beaur.

Jacob Beaur-age 37
Magdalena Beaur-age 29
Henry J. Beaur-age 7
Julia A. Beaur-age 5
Caroline Beaur-age 3
Francis Beaur-age 1

There are also other Beaur families in Attica in the 1870 census they are also indexed under the Beans last name. A couple of the families were originally from France.

YES, I'd found that newspaper clipping and chuckled because yet again, I get close but still miss out. Many other death announcements list names but this didn't! It says sons and a daughter but no names are listed that I could use as a comparison. Several other users on Ancestry had some of the same info listed so based on that, had a death certificate pulled using the dates used in their tree. And the parents listed on the death certificate aren't Jacob and Magdalene but a George and unreadable mother's first name. And based on other info in trees, this could be a cousin of "my" ancestor. I'm still looking for solid proof.

Thank you for finding this and sharing! I've come across the variations of spelling as Bower, Bauer, and Beauer but now I have to add Bean to the list! LOL
