Married - Mary Ball

Frank Bauer was born c 1859 and helped his father in the carpentry business. He married a girl by the name of Mary Ball. When Louis Kuntz, owner of L. Kuntz Park Brewery died in 1891, his family were too young to take on responsibility in the firm. Frank was appointed manager of the brewery but died suddenly in 1897 at age thirty-six. His brother, Aloyes, who had married Louis’ sister Magdalena (Lena) was given the brewery manager’s job, a position he held until his death in 1925.
