Adam Bayer
Mr. Bayer, of whom the Anniversary Edition presents a fine picture, was born on 24 August 1839 in Trauschendorf, Royal District of Weiden, Oberpfalz, Bavaria. He attended school and received First Holy Communion in Rogenstein. After finishing school, he took up farming and assisted on his parents' farm until his 17th year. He then learned the trade of miller and traveled through Bavaria and Switzerland. In 1869 he immigrated to America and settled near Lake Superior, Michigan, where he worked at various jobs. On 15 September 1869 he married the respected Miss Theresia Schultes, who was born on 18 August 1845 in Woppenried, Bavaria. In 1873 he moved to Fayette County, Iowa, where he acquired 40 acres of land. In 1875 he moved with his family to Pleasant Valley Township [Carroll County], where he purchased 137 acres of land. The family still lives on this place today, although he has gradually increased his real estate to 862 acres. Adam Bayer is a jovial old man who has risen from the bottom up, and from humble beginnings has acquired a remarkable amount of property.

He visited his sister and brother in Munich, visited Regensburg, Würzburg, Aschaffenburg, Nuremberg, and the beautiful Father Rhine. In his travels, he stopped in Hesse, Hesse-Darmstadt, and other regions of the old fatherland.
On his return trip, he brought along his mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and his sister's son, the later Rev. John B. Bäumler, who was then just 14 years old. The young man, who felt within him the calling of the priesthood, worked for about six years with his uncle, Mr. John Bayer as well as on other farms, whereby he saved the means necessary for his later studies. On 24 June 1897, the Rev. Father Bäumler performed his first Holy Mass at St. Mary's Church in Willey in the presence of his sister, his two uncles, and his aunt.
In 1886 Mr. Bayer traveled to Carroll County in order to see the land here. He then purchased 200 acres of land in Pleasant Valley Township, after which he worked the farm near St. Lucas for another year. He then sold that farm and moved to the little town of Willey in Pleasant Valley Township, where he opened a beer tavern, and in the meantime he rented out his farm in that township. He operated the tavern for four years, and then he totally retired to private life with his dear spouse in order to enjoy the fruits of his hard and profitable work. In 1896 he increased his real estate by purchasing an additional 61 acres of land in Newton Township. Mr. Bayer is a man who is a credit to the German culture, and he is therefore respected by all his acquaintances. May he and his esteemed wife be granted a sunny and pleasant old age.
