(Katherine) Barbara Disque Knipper Bauer Bender was born in Germany on 7 July 1841.  She came to the U.S. with her parents in 1851.  Family lore has it that she almost fell overboard during the passage when her foot got caught in a rope on deck.  She was saved by one of the sailors. Her family ended up settling in Boone County.  She first married (John) Adam Knipper who also came to this country from Germany and settled in Boone County.  She had 6-7 kids before Adam died before 1883.  She remarried Adam Bauer and later Anthony Bender.  After the deaths of Bender and her daughter, Lizzie, she tended house for her son-in-law, George Batchelor.  Her grandkids called her, "Grandma Bender."   She died in Lawrenceburg, IN on 7 Feb 1925 and is reportedly buried in an unmarked grave near Lot 106 with her daughter & son-in-law, Lizzie & George Batchelor.

Split Rock Farm -- George and Lizzie Batchelor settled on this farm to raise their kids in 1903.  I'm not sure if they owned it or simply worked it.  It was located at Split Rock at the mouth of Wulper Creek and the Ohio River outside of Petersburg.
