My Baumgart Album

Welcome to my online Baumgart album.These folks have been the hardest to research, they did not leave any information on where they were from or their family history.

Baumgart Pictures

Charles Baumgart (1871-1927) and Sarah Leonard Baumgart and daughter Sarah (Sadie) Baumgart(1895-1954)
Charles came from Germany about 1890 and settled in Philadelphia. He was a Chef by trade, working in some of the biggest hotels in the City at the time. In later years he bought a farm in Williamstown New Jersey and lived there until his death.

I just found information that Charles had a brother William Baumgart who married Annie Risky. If you have any information on this couple who lived in Germany please contact me.
6//1/2000 A breakthrough! I found Charles and Sarah Baumgart's marriage certificate Philadelphia 1894. Charles lists his place of birth as Russia-Poland. I also found them in the 1890 census living with brother William b. 1864 in Germany wife Henrietta b. Germany June 14, 1877 son Albert age 2 and daughter Martha E. age 2 months both born in Pennsylvania. Also living with them Sarah's sister born in Ireland 1873 Barbara Leonard.
Now I am not sure if Annie Risky was William's first wife or if she was their mother and William and Charles father was William also????

6/6/2005 I am still working on this family, talk about your brick walls! Well I found Henietta's information when she came to this county. She arrived May 24, 1896 the name of the ship was the Rhynland port of departure Liverpool, England arrival Philadelphia, Pa. last address Kalisch , I believe this is in what is today Poland. If you have any information on anyone in this family please, please contact me.

In searching for my family I found a great website with information on Germans from Russia. They have said information by the Stahl-am-Karaman FSL (Baumgart) to be from UC Lipany, Prussia. here is the link:
American Histoical Society of Germans from Russia

Sarah Leonard (1872-1935)

She came to the USA about 1890 with a younger sister, name unkown. They came from Ireland, and in Philadelphia, she met and married Charles Richard Baumgart, German immigrant, my grandfather.

Sarah was my inspiration for researching the family tree. Among her things I found an old Bible and in it was this poem written in her hand.
Mrs. Chas. Baumgart is my name,
Janvier Road is my dwelling place,
and heaven is my expectation.
When I am dead and in my grave,
and all my bones are rotten.
This little book will tell my name,
When I am quite forgotten.

Well, Grandmom I did not forget.

Richard Baumgart (1906-1963)

Richard "Dick" was born in Philadelphia February 7, 1906, and died May 1963. He had many trades, but his favorite hobby was working on cars. He was happiest when he was under the hood of his "57" Ford.
