Recently, while doing renovation work on our home, address below, we found a piece of wood inscribed: "Robt. H. Appleget Lawrenceville, New Jersey October 14, 1916 Carpener (sic)". I wonder if you would have any information on this family or if Mr. APPLEGET would still be living? It was so wonderful to find this 'time capsule' item.

Hello. I am looking for anyone that knows of George and Blanche BAUMANN. I am their granddaughter. They had 2 daughters Helen Elaine and Betty Joan. My grandparents lived in Trenton all of their lives. They are now deceased. Also looking for my cousin that lived with them. She was Tammy Sue KERR. Blanche's last name was KIMBLE and she has brother named Newton. If you can help please email me.
- Doris. 5 March 2007.

My name is Doris and my grandfather was George A. BAUMANN whom I knew for several years. He resided in Trenton, New Jersey, and was born in 1901. After doing some research and some comparisons with photographs found online, I seem to think there is quite a resemblance between my grandfather and Balthasar (Baltiss) BAUMANN. I do know also that my grandfather had a sister by the name Lena BAUMANN, who may or may not be older than my grandfather. Later down the road there was my mother, Betty Joan BAUMANN and her sister, Helen Elaine BAUMANN who married into the KERR family and whom we have not heard from since 1970 or so. If there is anyone who may have more information, than I would greatly appreciate it. If you are responding please let me know in the subject line in my email that it is in re: BAUMANN Family. Also looking for Tammy Sue KERR my cousin who lived with my grandparents. Thank you.
