Thanks Clyde. I got 2 degrees from North Texas State University( A
Screaming Eagle) and have 2 granddaughters there now. If any have German
ancestors from Prince Solms Braunfels to now- they have a large German
language library with some English Translations.
These are books and newspapers fromSisterdale, Boerne, Fredricksburg,
Westphalia, and some into Hill County and Muenster and West Texas. Some
buildings from Fredricksburg- one stone- are now in Texas Tech outdoor
Ranch museum. I did a post graduate reports on Texas Germans in Civil
War- which made Lincoln a third party ticket and a minority President.
Sons of Hermann nationwide supported Buchannan -or Breckenridge, which
ever was from Texas. My Hipp German ancestors were in Dutch Fork Hipp
colonies in North Carolina before 1776. Some setled in Bosque and Bell
County near later Germans- Temple to Cranfils Gap.
