This is peripheral to my own research, but I have a
Johann Karl Bayer born to Georg Bayer and Anna
Sybilla Nickl in Goppensbuhl, Bavaria on
13 Nov 1857 who emigrated to Milwaukee,
Wisconsin about 1890 with his wife Wilhelmina
Mayer. Their daughter Caroline Bayer married
first Philip and then Ambrose George Wiedmeyer,
brothers from Town of Trenton, Washington
Co., Wisconsin. I have some interest in another
part of this Wiedmeyer line, who also lived in
the Town of Richfield.

Surnames: Bayer, Gerner
Peter Beier/Bayer with wife Barbara Gerner were in WASHINGTON CO.,WI, in 1850. Was listed in 1850 census as Peter Bear. In 1861, six of his children were baptized in the Catholic Church in West Bend by P. Wigert.
Sometime before 1865, they moved to Dodge Co., MN
Would appreciat any information on when and where they came into the country. Family stories say they immigrated from Bavaria.

After making contact with a family member on this page, I have learned my great-grandmother's maiden name was Meehan, and not Niebau, as I was originally advised.

I noticed your last name is Seideman. My family has Pauline Seidemann marrying Phillip John Gerner about 1858. We also have Johanna Friederike Seidemann marrying Johann Christian Gerner in 1854. Any connection?

Do you have info that indicates that your Beier/Bayer line (Johanne Karl Bayer/Beier) might have had a relative named Franz Beier/Bayer/Beyer, married to a Johanna Moschner and I know they had a few children, but I only know the name of my G-Grandmother, Marie (or Mary) Beier/Bayer/Beyer Peche Lindstedt. I have photo's with who I think is some of her family, but don't know who the others are...I just recognize her from other photo's I have. Her family line also came from Bavaria and Austria. Many of the Beier/Bayer/Beyer, Peche, Lindstedt relatives settled in Wisconsin (especially Medford and surrounding areas) and IL - can anyone help?

Hello, wondering if you have more Bayer info. my ancestors all settled in Kewaskum in 1848 with Bayer connections. Wondering if there is a tie in. They probably emmigrated from Weiler Germany.
