"Joseph Balder was born in Peterwitz, Prussia on the 17th of November 1841. In 1870, his parents came to America, and the year following, to this town, where Mr. Balder took the farm on which he now lives. He married Miss Johanna Baron on the 27th of January, 1875. They have had four children, three of whom are now living." [Source: History of the Upper Missippi Valley, St. George Township (1881), p. 365]

In the 1880 census, Johanna was 25 years old and living with her husband Joseph on their farm in St. George, Benton Co., Minnesota with their two daughters, Mary, aged 5, and Martha, 1 year old. [Source: NA Film No. T9-0615, p. 169A]
