I am related to this family through Andrew H. Baier's wife, Kathie Hessler. This family came to the US about 1890 and lived in Cicero Illinois. Andrew was born about 1859 and Kathie about 1860 in Germany.
They had two children, Andrew Lewis Baier born November 1896 and Meda Babette Baier born September 1899. Babette married her first cousin and my great uncle, Emil Charles Jourdan (who died in 1944). Babette then married Robert Fox.
In 1920 Andrew Lewis Baier was living with his aunt and uncle, David and Babette Jourdan in Lyons Township Illinois. Emil and Babette were living in Oceana County Michigan down the street from Emil's sister, Babette's cousin, and my great aunt, Katie Jourdan Padecky. Are you confused yet?
I cannot find the Baier family any where in 1910 under any spelling.
Andrew L. married Hedwig (Harriet) and they had two children name Andrew T. born about 1924 and Louis born about 1926. Louis disappears after that, but Andrew L. shows up in Dupage County in his later years.
I am trying to find out what happened to Andrew H (the eldest)., my great grand aunt Katherine, and anything else about this family.
Please email me if you have any info. Thanks.
