Miami County, Ohio Genealogical Researchers -- Sponsored by the Computerized Heritage Association


    On the 26th of April, 1860, Dr. Bausman was born in Washington township, Miami county, his father being Emanuel Bausman, a native of Lancaster county, Pennsylvania. The grandfather, John Bausman, resided in the Keystone state, whence he removed to Ohio, establishing his Home near Covington, about 1840. He was accompanied by his son, Emanuel, who on reaching man's estate, married Anna E. Ingle, who was born and reared near Covington and belonged to one of the old families of the state. He was a carpenter and cabinetmaker by trade, following those pursuits in early life and later devoting his energies to farming. An industrious and energetic man, he carefully prosecuted his business affairs and won for his family a comfortable competence. In 1886 he was called to his final rest, at the age of sixty-six years, and his wife passed away in 1888, at the age of fifty-nine. In their family were seven children, as follows: Fianna, wife of Charles Laughman; Catherine, wife of George Shook; George W., a farmer residing in Washington township; Samuel N.; Mary E., who is living on the old home farm; Albert J., who is a practicing physician of Pleasant Hill and a graduate of the Ohio Medical College of the class of 1894, and Charles W., who is pursuing a preparatory course with the intention of entering the medical profession.

    Dr. Bausman, whose name introduces this sketch, was born and reared on his father's farm, the district schools affording him his elementary education, which was supplemented by a three years' course of study at Lebanon. In 1883 he went to Oakland, Illinois, where he engaged in grain dealing during the summer months and in the winter season taught school. He was thus employed for six years, after which he entered the Medical College of Ohio, in the fall of 1888. He was graduated in that institution in the class of 1890 and immediately afterward came to Pleasant Hill, where he has since practiced. His preparatory training was thorough and comprehensive and well fitted him for a successful career as a medical practitioner. He has since put forth every effort to perfect himself in his chosen calling, and his high standing in the profession is shown by the liberal patronage which is accorded him.

    The Doctor is a member of the Masonic fraternity, belonging to Pleasant Hill Lodge, No. 361. He also belongs to Lodge No. 574, I. O. O. F., and to the Knights of Pythias fraternity of Pleasant Hill. He has served as master in the Masonic order for two years and has filled all the chairs in the Odd Fellows society. In politics he is a Republican and has served on the central committee, taking an active interest in the work of the party and doing all in his power to promote its growth and insure its success. He is a man of genial disposition, courteous and kindly, and his prestige as a representative of the medical fraternity is indeed enviable.
