    Notes 
    • He spoke German and English.

      Nigh was his mother’s maiden name and in later years it was written Nye.

      Keith told me that the family tradition he recalls is that Albid (or futher back) lived in a community that had someone with the same last name and both of them spelled it “Baumann”. Albid and this other person had a similar business and the other person was crooked. Since Albid didn’t want to be associated with this person he dropped the last ‘n’. Ruth Tackitt told me that she remembers that Albid had a saw mill business and there was another person in the same community that also had a saw mill but that he was crooked. Albid quit his business and moved so as to not be associated wih the person.

      Another family tradition is that Albid owned a store in Texas and only accepted Confederate currency and lost his business as a result.

      Albid and his siblings inherited his parent’s land. In 1879 Albid began selling his portion and at least two portions were sold for $500.00 each.
    • Rosabelle Newell “Grandfather Bauman had a shop in Mineola (the bus. card) and had been home for a few days. (’Home - across Blue Branch, down the way from your Mom’s Johnson’s). He was on his way back to Mineola when he became ill. He was able to make it back home but he died a short time later on July 12, 1891, at the age of 60.” [1]
    • 1852 Marriage to Rebecca
