Andrew Bauder  --  1971

Rites Held Here for Andrew Bauder 
Jan. 8, 1888 - Jan. 18, 1972

       Andrew Bauder was the second child of Andrew and Christina Bauder, on Jan. 8, 1888, near Birsula, Russia.  His parents were also born in Russia; however the--family is strictly of German descent.  Birsula was located near Balta, bordering two Provinces, Cherson and Bassarbia, above the Black Sea.  The area is known as the Ukrain today.
       During the latter part of the Eighteenth and the early part of the Nineteenth centuries, life in Germany was most difficult.  Crop failures, economic distress, the scarcity of land, unbearable taxation, unjust government practices, new laws in regard to church and also to school, suppressed the people until they were ready for any way of improving their living.  At this same time, the Russian Tsars were seeking ways of improving their land and their people.  Catherine the Great initiated moves to help make people of other countries desire to live in Russia.  Tsar Alexander I continued and improved these moves.  They promised religious freedom, exemption from taxation, exemption from military service, and land to be given them for eternal time.  They were told that they would be free to leave the country whenever they desired by simply paying back certain obligations.
       Andrew's great great-grandfather, Joseph Bauder, born in 1783, moved his family to Russia on Nov. 19, 1817.  Here the family lived and worked for 72 years, or until 1889 when his grandfather Andrew migrated the family to the United States.  The desire to move from Russia was a result of the family wishing to escape military service and to discover better opportunities for their children.  They also desired to farm their own land.  The new oppressive moves in Russia were begun under Tsar Alexander II and left the people wanting.
       Andrew's parents moved with his grandparents to Colorado where they homesteaded north of Burlington, at an area called "The Settlement." Here Andrew received his education and learned the art of farming.  In 1909 he joined with his sister Christina and his brother Chris, in beginning their own homesteads near that of their father.  Here, the family attended the Immanual Lutheran Church.  His grandparents are buried at the cemetery at the Immanual Lutheran Church, at his parents are buried at Fairview Cemetery at Burlington.
       On Aug. 5, 1918, Andrew entered military service for the United States.  During World War I, he served in the Army Hospital Corps in France.  After coming home from the war, he fulfilled a growing desire to settle and farm his land.
       On Dec. 15, 1919, he married Elodia Conkey.  Judge Wyatt Boger performed the ceremony at the Kit Carson County House. To their union was born a son, Andrew Gail, on Aug. 30, 1929.  He died 18 days later on Sept. 17, 1929.
       Andrew and Lodi worked their land until 1948, when they retired and moved to Burlington.  Andrew served on the school board of District No. 3 that had charge over a country school house.  He was very active in the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.  He received his 50-year veteran pin from the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
       Andrew was a deeply happy man.  He loved to be with people, and to tell stories.  Wherever he walked, he left behind him a trail of smiling faces.  He enjoyed fishing very much.
       He entered Kit Carson Memorial Hospital Dec. 22, 1971.  He was transferred to St. Joseph Hospital in Denver Jan. 2, 1972.  He passed from this life Jan. 18, 1972, at the age of 84 years, 10 days.  Andrew was preceded in death by two brothers.  Carl, who lived at Burlington, passed away Nov. 30, 1965.  Chris passed away Oct. 29, 1971.
       Andrew is survived by his wife, Lodi, of Burlington; two brothers, William, of Portland, Ore.; Ludwig, of Gooding, Idaho; six sisters, Christina Hartl, of Golden; Katie Coad, of Canon City; Mary Quiggle, of Wray; Louise Quiggle, of Wray Bertha Castle, of Roundup Montana; Clara Loyd of Loveland; and many other relatives.
       Andrew and Lodi celebrated their 50th or golden anniversary in 1969.  They joined with Andrew's sisters, Christina and Katie on this landmark in living together.  Christina and Andri Harth celebrated their gold anniversary in 1960.  Katie and Cecil Coad celebrated the golden anniversary in 1966.  Also, Andrew's parents had celebrated their golden anniversary as well as his grandparents.
       Funeral services were held Saturday, Jan. 22, at the Hendricks Chapel, with the Rev. Robert Bauer of the Church of the Nazarene officiating.  W. R (Bob) Hendricks was soloist for the vocal selections, accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Merna Carlin.
       Casket bearers were Frank Walters, Bud Boyles, Harold Felzien, Harold Boland, Floyd Chandler and Leo King.  Honorary casket bearers we Harley Conger, Oscar Olson, Otto Taylor and George Schutte.
