Searching for the
Baumgartner Family Tree

In 1997 I started actively searching for the Illusive Baumgartner’s. I spoke with some of the Family members that could remember some of the stories told by the only really known relative that could tell us anything about our history, Seymour Baumgartner.

According to John F. Baumgartner Sr., we were from the Chimney Rock area about 40 miles South East of Asheville North Carolina. This is where the search began. At first I searched for the name Baumgartner and quickly learned that if a Family had that name then they were either from Ohio or the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia. Although our Family may have originated there, the connection could not be made at the time of this writing. I started to look for the spelling Baumgardner because it was believed that that was how it was spelled before Seymour changed it. This turned up a couple of names but never anything that made any sense at all.

John Sr. Gave me a Bible that was passed to him from Jane his mother and it had some History in the back but told me that he thought that most of the information about the Baumgartner’s was probably incorrect because it was believed that the information that was written in the back was by Jane Baumgartner as she was up in age. I noticed that this Bible was given to her on 8/9/1944 and she had plenty of time to confer with Seymour before his death. The last entry made in the Bible was the Marriage of her son John F Baumgartner to Alice McNeal on 7/4/1956, still long before Seymour passed.

For the most part the information in that old Bible has proved to be correct thus far. There were a couple of things that had me running against brick walls. First, the Bible showed Seymour’s father’s name as Lindsey Baumgartner instead of how it was spelled before it was changed. It also showed Lindsey and Emma being buried at Locust Hill Cemetery in Jackson County. I was able to obtain a map of North Carolina and started looking for a city named Locust Hill, and located it in Caswell County about 30 miles from the North Carolina, Virginia border northeast of Greensboro and Burlington.

Since the town angle didn't seem to fit and the Surname was incorrect I started to look for the Cemetery in the Asheville/Chimney Rock area. This turned up nothing however thinking that the name of the Cemetery may have changed since 1912 I looked through them all and marked them off as I went. There was one thing that I noticed about the Surname of Baumgartner and that was that everyone in the area spelled it Bumgarner, dropping both the first "A" and the "T". Those with a "D" in their name was far and few in between.

I posted a message on one of the Baumgartner/Bumgarner/Baumgardner Bulletin Board web pages on the internet and waited. I was asking for any information on a Lindsey in the Asheville/Chimney Rock areas, no reply's. I started sending E-Mails to Folks who seemed to have allot of Baumgartner info asking them for the same thing I posted on the Bulletin Boards. Again no luck.

Finally someone E-Mailed me back saying that he thought that he had a match for our Family using the John Baumgartner (was written as Lindsey’s Father) from the Old Bible, however this man told me that most likely our name was spelled Bumgarner. By this time I had already invested in a Family Tree Maker program and was able to find the tree that he had spoken of. I linked the two trees together and even showed a couple of relatives but had an unsettling feeling that it was somehow wrong because I had nothing to substantiate the new HUGE tree with. I started looking further into in with the Family Tree Maker and discovered that someone else had already joined this family through similar people however they were not posted by the same Family! Drats No Connection!

Back to the drawing board. This time I was going to hit it hard and use the name Bumgarner because it was so frequent then and is still now in that area! Well Finally I found the record of the Marriage of Lindsey Bumgarner, 24 and Emma A. Calhoun ,20 Married 8/3/1891 in Jackson County, that old Bible was right on the money! I didn't realize it at the time but not only had I found them, I had also found his Siblings, their spouses and his Mother and Father as well.

The E-Mail press was rolling and on that first day I must have sent 50 E-Mails to different people in the Jackson County area that have or can check for our family in records and in various Census Reports. (Census Records are the only to show the age and or the date of birth of some one back then because there were no Birth Certificates Issued in North Carolina until 1945) The information I got back was overwhelming and after 2 years I realized that I had hit the Jackpot!

There is someone that will be writing a book about the Calhoun Family and our Family history are to be included in that book.

To sum it all up, about 2 years ago when I started this project we could trace back to 1897 with 4 Generations of Baumgartner’s and now we can go back to 1799 and can show 9 Generations of Baumgartner/Bumgarner’s and will be expanding the family tree as they report in and tie into US! The man Writing the book on the Calhoun’s said that he can trace back to Ireland into the 1500’s.

I hope you enjoy reading about our past as much I do! It was a challenge to put it together but somehow deeply gratifying!

New! Because of Research that was done by a fellow Genealogist and a Distant Cousin, Naomi Hooper Green we are able to add 2 more generations and many new Names to our Family Tree. This moves the Family Roots from Jackson County NC up to Wilkes County NC and may with further research go back even more. All of the new people added to the Family Tree (Thanks again to Naomi) is backed up by Census Records as well as Jackson and Wilkes County Heritage Publications.

A Special thanks to Naomi Hooper Green!

More New!! I have just received and published on this web page Information from Neil Baumgartner Sr. and his Family. Neil is the Son of Fidel Bumgarner. Thanks Neil and Family!
                        By The Way!  Warm Congratulations to Alice Baumgartner
                                                 She was recently Married!
                             Alice let us know when more Descendants Need Adding!
Finding Neil is perhaps the most profound proof that substantiates this family tree, he actually remembers meeting Seymour Baumgartner as a child thus tying it all together.

Even More New!!! I have just received what is thought to be the Baumgartner Blazon of Arms and the Crest. I have posted the B/W version of the Blazon of Arms as well as my Color Interpretation along with the information sent to me.

It is Rachel that links Henry to John and then Lindsey Bumgarner.

Notes for DEMPSEY RABY:
It is unknown if Demsey Raby was married to Rachel or not (1880 Census Records Indicate yes). He is about twice her age and could have been her father-in-law instead however no marriage records have been found that would indicate either way so for now it is assumed that they were married.

Child of WILLIAM GUNTER and MARY SULLINS is:
25. i. ROBERT A.6 GUNTER.

18. LINDSEY5 BUMGARNER (JOHN HENRY4, HENRY3, LEONARD BUMGARNER2 SR., MICHAEL1 BUMGARNER) was born January 1867 in Barkers creek area Jackson County North Carolina, and died 1912 in Barkers creek area Jackson County North Carolina. He married (1) EMMA CALHOUN August 03, 1891 in Sylva. He married (2) VIOLA Abt. 1910 in Unknown.

Notes for LINDSEY BUMGARNER:
The story has always been told as part of family folklore that when Lindsey Passed away that he left the family Fortune to two of his brothers to care for his children, however the more this Author researches the more that is is believed that the old story is not true at least not from Lindsey that is. It would be conceivably possible that an inheritance could have been realized from earlier in the Bumgarner history or possibly from Emma's Calhoun side of the family.

Lindsey was a Machinist at the Pulp Mill ( Blackwood Lumber Company?) and is unlikely to have obtained a fortune from that job. The old story tells of the family being big land owners and owning their own Logging operation and my research has yet to be able to prove this. Census records list his occupation as stated above. Census Records also indicate no Real Estate Value at that time, unlike his Father John with a value of $100.00.

1870 Census indicate that Lindsey was living with his Aunt Rachel Raby and Uncle Dempsey Raby along with his Grandmother Phebe (Kilby) Bumgarner, thus connecting Phebe and Henry to John through Lindsey. It is presumed that Henry had passed away between 1860 and 1870 Census periods.

At the time of the 1910 Census Lindsey lived with his new wife Viola on Webster Road in Sylva Township, Jackson County NC.

Census Records also Indicate that Lindsey could both Read and Write.

Lindsey is Buried in Locust Field Cemetery next to Locust Field Baptist Church.

Notes for EMMA CALHOUN:
According to the 1900 Census Emma and Lindsey had been married for 9 years and had 3 children 2 living. So it must be concluded that there was another child that was born and died that will be called in this report L.B. only because there is an L.B. buried next to Lindsey.

According to 1900 Census was born in South Carolina. At that time Her and Lindsey were living in Barkers Creek Township, Jackson County NC.

Notes for VIOLA:
Viola must have married Lindsey shortly after the death of Emma. Probably so that the Children would have a Mother Figure around. 1910 Census report shows Lindsey Married twice and Viola once with no children. 2 years later Lindsey himself passed away.

Children of LINDSEY BUMGARNER and EMMA CALHOUN are:
26. i. WALTER6 BUMGARNER, b. September 04, 1892.
27. ii. SEYMOUR JAY BUMGARNER/BAUMGARTNER, b. May 1897, Barkers creek area Jackson County North Carolina; d. 1961, Jacksonville Florida.
iii. GILBERT BUMGARNER, b. Aft. 1900, Barkers creek area Jackson County North Carolina; d. Abt. 1960, New Jersey; m. MAYZE, Unknown.

Notes for GILBERT BUMGARNER:
Gilbert along with his brother changed their names back to the original correct spelling of Baumgartner. It is thought that Gilbert and Mayze had no Children.

iv. MAYE BUMGARNER, b. Aft. 1900.

Notes for MAYE BUMGARNER:
It is known that Maye did indeed marry and stayed in Asheville NC. and her husband was the president of the Builtmore Bank there.

1920 Swain County Census shows Maye living with Archibald F. and Grace L. Ray in the Charleston Township as their Niece. Her parents Lindsey and Emma Died 1912 and 1910 respectively.

v. L.B. BUMGARNER, b. Unknown.

Notes for L.B. BUMGARNER:
The actual name of this child is unknown and must have died between 1891 and 1900. The name LB is on a head stone in the grave yard next to Lindsey and it is assumed that it would have ment either Lindsey Bumgarner Jr. or Little Boy Bumgarner. One of those Bumgarner Mysteries!

19. FIDIL WOODFIN5 BUMGARNER (JOHN HENRY4, HENRY3, LEONARD BUMGARNER2 SR., MICHAEL1 BUMGARNER) was born 1872 in Alabama, and died Unknown in Unknown. He married (1) HATTIE SUTTON Bef. 1900 in Unknown. He married (2) RIXIE PARTON June 02, 1900 in Lige Keener's. He married (3) HESTER ELIZABETH SORRELLS Abt. 1907 in Possibly in Haywood County NC.

Notes for FIDIL WOODFIN BUMGARNER:
From 1880 Jackson County Census. In Census Fidil's name was misspelled as Phidella Bumgarner age 8 Born in NC.

It would seem that Fidil was probably married 3-4 times total a widow 2 times.
The 1st Marriage produced 4 children according to Neil Bumgarner and the second to Rixie produced 1 child, the marriage to Hester E. Sorrells produced 5 children.

The Family pronunciation of this name is Fidell (long I).

John F. Baumgartner Sr believes that Fidell if the Brother that was charged with the care of at least 2 of Lindsey's Children after his death. This is unconfirmed at this point in time.

Notes for HATTIE SUTTON:
According to Neil Bumgarner who is still living His father was married to Hattie Sutton and had 3 children. the names of these children is unclear at this time!

Notes for RIXIE PARTON:
It is unknown where Rixie Parton was Born however she died in Jackson county and is Buried in Locust Field Cemetery beside Locust Field Baptist Church.

Notes for HESTER ELIZABETH SORRELLS:
It is unknown when and where Fidil and Hester Married however they had 5 Children together and Hester helped raise the two girls from Fidil's previous marriages that ended in the death of the two spouses. 1910 Census of Haywood County shows Fidil married to Hester with all 4 of Fidils children there. The Census shows that Fidil and Hester had been married for 3 years at that time.

Walter, unlike his other brothers didn't change his name back to the correct Germanic spelling. Walter, it is believed in later years became a minister. He could have done that part time as well.

Notes for SEYMOUR JAY BUMGARNER/BAUMGARTNER:
Story tells of Seymour crossing the St Johns river (at that time it could still be crossed on foot) n Jacksonville Florida carrying cross ties on each Shoulder. It is said that he was a very powerful man with very large hands. He worked in the Jacksonville Ship Yard where he eventually lost his right arm and died a short time after that. Seymour was known to enjoy his Gin.

Seymour wanted to join the service when he was a teenager to help support is sibling's however he was not old enough (16 years old) so he lied about his age and joined the U.S. Army during WW1(Calvery). Also noteworthy is the fact that Seymour along with his brother Gilbert changed his name back to the correct spelling of their surname to Baumgartner.

Information gotten from Neil Baumgartner and his Family indicate that Seymour's Real name may have been John Seymour Baumgartner and that his Brother Gilbert was was actually Gilbert Jay Baumgartner. If this is true then it could explain why his name could not be found in any social security number searches.

Notes for SEYMOUR J. BAUMGARTNER JR.:
Seymour is know by all of John's children as Uncle Bubber. This name comes from when John was a small child and couldn't say the word Brother and it came out as Bubber and it seems to have stuck.

Notes for JAMES GILBERT BAUMGARTNER:
James or Jimmy as he was known was a very proud Marine and was an accomplished Ship worker like his father. Jimmy was also an expert Marx man. John Jr. recalls times when Uncle Jimmy and his Father John Sr. would target practice using bottle caps nailed on a board with finishing nails and they would shoot the nail out of the bottle cap with a 22 cal. leaving only one hole from 100 yards. John jr was also used a couple times to hold a lit cigarette and they would extinguish it with the 22 cal. Bullett.

Seymour, Jimmy's oldest brother recalls that Jimmy was a devout Catholic and rarely missed a morning mass, even going to 7:00 mass before work.

John Jr also recalls a story that his Uncle Jimmy told about being in a national Marx man championship that came down between himself and a Great grandson of Davy Crockett. Uncle Jimmy said that he felt that he won that match however no one wanted to discredit a name such as Crockett. Jimmy died young at the age of 42 in his home in Jacksonville Florida.
