Anna Bauman was born  1565 in Bissingen, Wurttemberg, Germany.  Her father was Casper Bauman.  Her mother may have been Gertraudt.  She was listed as mother for some of Anna's siblings, but she could have been a step mother.

 A Maier Genealogy was written in the 1930's while a family member was living in Germany. All of this information came from that document. However, I also have a copy of the church records of Bissingen microfilmed by LDS. The handwriting is in old German and the spelling varies but the detail matches what had been discovered in the 1930s.  There is also a CD set of Western European Church records, FHL Film #1055843.  The information on this story comes mainly from that CD, where the old German is already translated or online at Family Index Project C92714-1 Film #1055840. 

Hans Kirchenmeyer married Anna Ringler about 1582.  They had 2 children: 
1.  Joannes Kirschenmeier (male) born 1583 in Bissingen an der Teck
2.  Joannes Kirschenmeier born 1585 in Bissingen an der Teck
    I cannot tell from the record I have whether the first child died and they used the name a 2nd time, or was this the Christian baptismal name and there were different names for each child.  What I do know is that Anna Ringler Kirchenmeyer died sometime after the birth of the 2nd child and the next year.

Hans Kirchenmeier married a 2nd time to Anna Bawman on Nov. 16, 1586.  FHL Film 1055840, covering 1576-1590.  I don't know why, but in this record her father's name is given as Jerg Bauman.  I do not know the relationship of Jerg and Caspar Bauman.

Hans and our  Anna Kirchenmayer had 7 known children all born in Bissingen an der Teck. The first would have been his 3rd, thus
3.  Joannes Kirschenmeier born 1587 - same question as above.
4.  Georgius Kirschenmeier born 1590
5.  Son Unknown first name Kirschenmayer baptized July 12, 1592
6.  Catharina Kirchenmaier born March 21, 1595 wed Caspar Meyer Feb 1614.
7.  Ursula Kirschenmayer baptized Feb. 17, 1597
8.  Margretha Kirschenmaier baptized Dec. 31 1601
9.  Barbara Kirschenmayer baptized April 12, 1605

I have a copy of the original church records noted Catharina 's birth.  When Catharina married in 1614 the records listed her father as Hanns Kirschenmeyer.  I'm not sure whether that signified he was still alive or not.  But we know he lived until at least 1605. As was Anna Bauman Kirschenmayer.  We do not know when she died.

In the area around Stuttgart, there are 3 towns that could fit the name "Bissingen". They are Bissingen, Bisingen, and Bissingen an der Teck. After a careful study of the 1930's document we believe it is the Bissingen an der Teck. Later research confirmed this. Close by there is a Dettingen unter Teck. It is the home of other relatives. These villages are south east of Stuttgart.
