52 Ancestors – #13: Marie Peters Bauer, My Great-Great Grandmother

Phillip and Marie Bauer_opt

Marie Peters Bauer

Marie Peters traveled from Prussia to New Braunfels with her parents in the 1850s. I heard a story about Marie a number of years ago. She knew Philipp Bauer in Prussia. He must have lived in the same area as her family. Once she arrived in New Braunfels she wrote and told him to come to Texas. He took her advice and on 19 August 1855 they married in New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas. G. W. Eisenlohr a minister of the Gospel performed the ceremony.

Marie and Philipp had five children Bertha, Otto, Louise married Carl Wessley, Ernest married Rosa Bender, and Emma married Henry Schuetz.

She is buried in the Kreutzberg Cemetery in Kendall County. Her tombstone states,

52 Ancestors – #10: You go Girl! Emma Bauer Schuetz

In 1978 I found a voter registration receipt for my great-grandmother, Emma Bauer Schuetz. At the time, I made a copy for my files and then never really looked it again. As I was going through a folder today, I ran across the copy and read it and noticed the date was 5 July 1918. Whoa, I thought 1920 was the date women started voting. I immediately went to my go-to site about Texas, The Texas Handbook Online.  I learned in March 1918 a bill was introduced that would allow women to vote in the Texas primaries. It passed in the House, the Senate and was signed by Governor William P. Hobby. Emma, a 50-year-old housewife from Kendalia, Texas and daughter of immigrant parents, stepped right up and registered to vote. She was in tune with her times. You go girl! The first Democratic primary was held on 26 July 1918. I wonder who she voted for…

Philipp and Maria Peters Bauer

Philipp and Maria Peters Bauer

In 1859, Philipp Bauer petitioned the Comal County District Court to become a citizen of the United States. Henry Seele and John Schumacher provided affidavits saying that they had known him for the past five years and was a man of good moral character. He denounced all allegiance to the King of Prussia and was awarded a certificate of citizenship.

Philipp Bauer was born in Prussia on 21 June 1820 and married Maria Peters on 15 August 1855 in New Braunfels, Texas. G. W. Eisenlohr preformed the ceremony. A family story says he corresponded with Maria before he came to Texas. She lived in New Braunfels.

Philipp and Maria had five children: Bertha, Otto, Louise, Ernst, Emma.

Both are buried in the Kreutzberg Cemetery. Philipp died 5 January 1902 and Marie died 13 March 1905.

They are my great-great grandparents.
