The Goshenhoppen Church in Hereford Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania was a Union church where Lutheran and Reformed congregations shared one building. The first recorded Reformed worship service was on October 12, 1727. The congregations built a log building that was both church and schoolhouse.

Eva Elizabeth Beil (Weil) Bauman was born on April 6 1720 in Germany. Her parents were Johann Georg Beil and Anna Maria Delp.

She immigrated to America with a group of neighbors and fellow church members when she was only 18 years old. She came on the ship Billender Thistle captained by George Houston. She arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 28, 1738 . Her name was recorded as Eveles Byle.

When she was 19, on August 21, 1739, she married Johann Dietrich Bauman at the Goshenhoppen Church at Red Hill, Montgomery County (then Philadelphia County), Pennsylvania.

Their children and life together are described in detail in the section on Dietrich and Elizabeth Bauman.

She died when she was 52 in the same year as the Boston Tea Party, 1773 in Towamensing Township, Carbon County, Pennsylvania.
