She gives a good explanation of this confusion about the Bauder name and the following is excerpted her book.
"Like most of us in the family, I had believed the name had always been spelled Bauder.
There was only one record found where it was spelled Bauder prior to 1800.I contacted her about it and we corresponded a number of times.She said that the Bauder family had been thoroughly traced in Germany by a Dr. Wilhelm Bauder; that there were never any Bauders in Kirchheim (where Melchior came from); that the name had never been spelled Bader, and that no Bauders came over that early.She suggested I would find we were a separate family.Due to some "common" names in both families, and the fact that there were so many spelling variations here in the early records, I was not convinced.
