Bio: Edwin O. Bauman (1865  - ?) on Sun, 11 Feb 2001



Edwin O. Bauman, proprietor of a fine farm in Section 8, Hixon Township, was born in London, England, Aug. 14, 1865. His parents were Charles and Annie (Harvey) Bauman, the mother being a sister of Fred Harvey, an official of the Santa Fe Railway. The father was an architect, who is now deceased. Mrs. Annie Bauman is still living Edwin 0. Bauman came to this country in 1881, and took a position with the Fred Harvey Eating-House and Dining Car Company, as cashier at eating-houses, and conductor of dining cars.

He followed the restaurant and hotel business until 1911, when he came to Clark County and bought his present farm of 160 acres. The land was wild at the time, but he has since improved and developed the place until he now has an excellent farm, well cultivated and with good buildings. There is a good road past his place, which is on a rural postal route; his house is a neat and commodious dwelling, supplied with telephone and other conveniences, and he has a good barn, a hay shed 32 by 30 feet in size, and a horse and cow barn. He raises hay and millet and has a fine orchard of apple and plum trees. Mr. Bauman keeps Oxford sheep, Chester-White hogs, high grade Percheron horses and Holstein cattle, milking ten cows. His new barn measures 80 by 36 feet, has stone basement, and is supplied with running water and other conveniences.

Mr. Bauman is a member of the Christian Science Church. He was married Sept. 7, 1899, to Anna Mullahy, who was born June 7, 1875, daughter of Peter and Ellen (Carey) Mullahy, the father being of Scotch-Irish descent and the mother English. The latter died Feb. 14, 1910, but the father is still living, being a resident of Des Moines, Iowa.

A station on the Rock Island Railway, in Iowa, was named Mullahy in honor of Mrs. Bauman. A list of her parents' children is as follows: Margaret, wife of A. Gregg, residing in Iowa; Elizabeth, now Mrs. M. Fitchorn, of Iowa; James and Peter, also living in that state, and Anna, wife of Mr. Bauman. Mr. And Mrs. Bauman have two children: Marie, born Sept. 11, 1900; and Francis, born Oct. 1, 1902. The children of Charles and Annie Bauman, parents of the subject of this sketch, were: Charles and Harry, who are now deceased; Edwin O., of Longwood Township; Alexander, who resides in England; Florence, in California; and Lilly, who is in England.
