Another article about the deaths of Lee Bausman and Henry Harms. The car/train accident occurred on 20 November 1919 in Austin, Mower County, Minnesota. Lee was 29 and Henry was 37.
I wish I knew more about Henry Harms. I think he was married with at least six children. Henry’s nephew William Harms married Lee’s sister Gladys in 1925. Lee and Gladys were paternal cousins of my great-grandmother, Viola (Bausman) Davis Hickman.

TWO KILLED IN WRECK
Iowans Hit By Train At Lyle Die At St. Olaf’s Hospital
Lee Bausman and Henry Harms, whose homes are at Wellsburg, Iowa, were fatally injured at noon today when a Ford roadster in which they were riding was struck by the Milwaukee road passenger train about two and a half miles north of Lyle at the Red Star Crossing. After hitting the machine the train went on to Lyle. The crew knew nothing of the accident until they saw a fender of the machine hanging on the locomotive. On arriving at the place of the accident, a rescue party from Lyle found that the injured had been taken away in a physician’s automobile. The two men were brought to St. Olaf’s hospital at about 2:30 this afternoon. Harms died shortly after three o’clock and Bausman about 3:35. Letters and papers in the men’s pockets identified them. They were unconscious when brought here. Advices from Lyle state that the wrecked machine had been taken to the city hall.

Louis Bausman was the ninth child born to Nicholas Sr. and Mary (Casper) Bausman. The tenth child, Jacob, died in infancy. The youngest son to live to adulthood, I don’t know much about Louis, except for what I have gleaned from official records. Louis was a brother of Nicholas Bausman Jr, my maternal grandfather’s grandfather.
Louis was born November 1863 in Guilford Township, Jo Daviess county, Illinois. He married Ida Agnes Zeal, daughter of George and Elizabeth (Blackmore) Zeal, on 11 January 1900 in Millbrig, Jo Daviess County, Illinois. O.J. Simmons, Methodist, officiated.
They began their married life in Scales Mound, Guilford Township, Jo Daviess County, Illinois, before eventually moving to Minnesota. He and Ida raised four children:
- Floyd Zeal Bausman (1901 – 1973)
- Lyman LeRoy Bausman (1903 – 1994)
- Ethel Viola (Bausman) Williams (1905 – 1977)
- Marvin Louis Bausman (1920 – 1990)
Louis was a lifelong farmer, who died 05 May 1930 in Dodge, Minnesota. Interment made at Byron Cemetery in Kalmar Township, Olmsted County, Minnesota.
About 1933, Ida remarried Henry Parks, a widower. Henry died 19 July 1945 in Olmsted County, Minnesota. Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to determine when she died or where she is buried.
