    Notes 
    • The family tradition is that the Bauman's were Black Dutch meaning they had dark skin and eyes. Apparently they were from Dutch Germany and lived in Pennsylvania.


      For the sum of one cent per acre..."there is granted by the said State of Tennessee, unto Adam Bauman a certain Tract or Parcel of land, containing one hundred & ninety five acres by survey bearing date the 16th day of March 1826 lying in said county on the south side of Elk river on the head waters of said creek. And bounded as follows to wit: Beginning at ap? John Smiths south east corner turning north west on his line one hundred poles to a dogwood thence east seven poles to a poplar thence north thirty one to a white oak thence east two hundred to two poles and two tenths of a pole to a chestnut then south one hundred and thirty one poles to a hi? thence west two hundred & forty nine poles thence two tenths of a pole to the beginning with the hereditaments and appurtenances. To have and to hold, the said Tract or Parcel of Land its appurtenances, to the said Adam Bauman and his heirs. In witness whereof Samuel Houston, Governor of the State of Tennessee hath hereunto set his hand, and caused the great seal of the state to be affixed, at Nashville, on the 23rd day of July in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred twentyeight, and of the independence of the United States the fifty third.",
      I do not have any proof that this is the Adam Bauman that I'm seeking. However, we do now that Albid Nigh Bauman was born in Lincoln Co. TN in 1831.

      Adam received a land grant for the north west quarter of the south west quarter of section nineteen in township sixteen north of range four west of the third meridian in the district of lands subject to sale at Springfield, Illinois containing forty acres and eighty two hundredths of an acre. The grant certificate was signed on October 1, 1834 by Andrew Jackson.
      Later Adam Bauman was the grantor for land (in Book F page 151-152) and the grantee was Joseph Klein., ,
      ,

      Apparently some of the land was near John M. Landrum. In at least 2 documents the Landrum and Bauman maps were referenced but I did not locate them.

      Ruth Tackitt recalls her Grandfather George telling how his father, mother, siblings and neighbors talked of making a barge with and traveled down the Mississippi stopping along the way long enough in some cases to grow a garden. They stopped in New Orleans but didn’t like it so they moved on to Shreveport, LA.
