Surname Saturday BAUDERMANN (New Jersey, Germany)

Leonard BAUDERMANN was born in Baden, Germany in 1840 according to the 1870 Federal census. I have Leonard's arrival to the US with his family in 1852 at the Port of New York. The ship's passenger list for the British Bark Anna Morka lists an 11 year old Leonard with his parents Wendelin and Appolonia HEMMER and siblings Michael, Mathilda, Maria, Julianna and Appolonia.

In the 1870 Federal census Leonard is listed as a butcher with his first wife Magdelina Theresia HELLINGER and 3 of their 9 children! After Magdelina's death, Leonard married Maria Carolina LUCKING and had an additional 6 children!

The North American Vital Records Index shows the BAUDERMANN children were christened in either the St. Mary's Catholic Church in Newark, Essex, New Jersey or in St. Augustine Catholic Church in Newark, Essex, New Jersey.
