Evangeline M. Baumgartner was born on December 25, 1925, the daughter of Frank and Aloysia (Eberle) Baumgartner on a farm near Burnstead, ND. The family lived there until 1932 when they moved to Edgely, ND. Evangeline was united in marriage to Balzer “Bill” Schweitzer on October 9, 1942 in Dickey, ND.
