Mrs. Christena Bauder died Friday, April 25, 1919, aged 78 years and 8 days. Her maiden name was Christena Ottenbacher. She was born in South Russia, near Odessa, on the 17th day of April, 1841, where she was married to Andrew Bauder on the 11th of September, 1862;to which union was born eleven children; seven boys and four girls. Two boys and one girl passed away in infancy.
The family came to America during the fall of 1888 and settled in this county some 15 miles northwest of Burlington, near the Lostman creek, where they resided on the homestead for 29 years.
On the account of old age and feeble infirmities, last October they went to reside with their son Fred, with which they had lived for six months. During the 25 days of January 1919, she had a stroke of paralysis which afflicted the left side. On the 10th of April they moved into their new home on the Samuel Schaal farm, where for two weeks Grandmother Bauder lived until the 25th day of April when she passed away peacefully and was buried in the Lutheran church cemetery on Sunday, April 27. Rev. Gus Adolph performing the funeral rites.
She leaves to mourn their loss her aged husband, five sons and three daughters, together with 46 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, all living in Colorado. The five sons and her son-in-law, Mr. Samuel Schaal were the pallbearers. The floral offerings were beautiful and lavish in display.
Last Thursday, July 14, 1921 Andreas Bauder Sr. died at the home of his daughter, Dorothea, and her husband, Samuel Schaal. He was born in South Russia on the 4th day of December 1838. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran church, received a good Christian school education and prepared himself, by an apprenticeship of several years for the vocation of a blacksmith.
In 1862 he was united in marriage with Christina Katherina Otenbacher. Three of his eleven children died in their infancy in Russia. Since this blessed country of ours exhibited to him, as well as to thousands of others in the old country, a sphere of usefulness and enterprise, he came to America with his family and landed in Baltimore in 1889.
He was one of the first settlers near Bethune and went thru all the troubles and hardships of establishing a new home on the virgin soil of a new country. There was no crop in the first four years of his farming, but after years of hard work he saw his labor rewarded. He was one of those early settlers, who by their hard work and endurance – strange as it seems – helped to build up the city of Burlington and to enrich our country.
In 1912 he celebrated with his wife the golden jubilee of their wedding. Since 1918 he was staying with his daughter, Dorothea. His wife died in 1919. He was esteemed by everyone who knew him. He died a peaceful death, being 82 years, 7 months and 10 days of age.

He leaves to mourn his death eight children: Andreas Bauder, Gottlieb Bauder, Friedrich Bauder, and Dorothea Schaal, of Bethune, Colorado; Johann Bauder, Brighton, Colorado; Katharina Mase, Golden, Colorado; Jacob Bauder, Sterling, Colorado; Christina Elein, Ft. Morgan, Colorado; his sons-in-law and daughters-in-law, 45 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, 1 sister and a large circle of friends.

Many friends of the departed attended his funeral. Undertaker N. R. Brown conducted the funeral. ------------------------------------------------

Morgan and stayed about a year and sold out. She then went to Portland where she married Dan Ramsey. They lived in and around Portland, where he died in the early 1940s.

In May 1965 she fell on the curb and broke her hip and was hospitalized for eight weeks. After convalescing she went to Newberg to stay with her nephew, Robert Bauder.
