I recently had my late grandmother's mid-1800's German bible translated from old German to new German to English and this is what's written on the inside pages.
At this time I am unaware of my family's connection to the Bauer and Bauman families. My gg grandfather was William George Wingenfeld born in Darmstadt, Hessen, Germany dying in Cleveland, Ohio, USA where I reside. His father was Ferdinand Wingenfeld b. 1840 in Germany. Ferdinand married Julia Vierheller.
Please let me know if ANY of this looks familiar to you.
