    [from Kring book, found in United Methodist Commission of History and Archives, original in German]
    Died on the 27th of August last, near Germantown, Wayne Co., Indiana, Elizabeth, wife of Samuel Baumgardner, and 43 years and 22 days. She was born in the state of Pennsylvania, a daughter of George Kring, recently of Cambria County, the same state. Sister Baumgardner was converted to God in her youth and joined the Evangelical Church. After her marriage she lived with her now surviving husband a long while in Pennsylvania, then she came with her family to the West, with the intention to move to Illinois. Since she stayed for a time in the vicinity of Germantown, she attended the services regularly and appeared to have great pleasure from them. During her stay of over eight years, she was never formally taken in as a member. While she lived, she was known as a loyal wife and a devout mother. As a neighbor and friend she was loved by everyone. She was especially industrious in keeping house and raising her family and she had the fortune of seeing the fruits of her trouble during her life in the conversion of hwer oldest children. She died in childbirth, quickly and unexpectedly by the family. After seven long hours of untold pain, her life disappeared all at once, just like blowing out a light. She left behind a deeply affected and grieved husband and ten children, of which four are still not of age and dependent. The only consolation to follow her to her grave is: "What God does, is done well". On the 28th the soulles body, accompanied by an unusually large crowd was brought to the cemetery of the Germantown Evangelical Congregation Church. The mother was placed into the grave together with her baby lying in her arm. At this scene many of those present felt sincere sympathy. The Brothers Bademan and Schonocker gave the sermon to the assembly on Revelations 13, 14. A.B. Schafer
